Stocking Stuffer


Looking for a quick last minute stocking stuffer? 

Instead of making snowman poop, reindeer poop or Grinch poop I just made this wrapper.  My intent was to make snowman poop.  But I just wasn't feeling it.  So instead I just kept it simple.  To make these mint wrappers simply measure the height and width and cut.  Then score along the sides.  In this case I used Tic Tacs.  I'm HORRIBLE with numbers so I was a bit frustrated with the measurements.  But I eventually got there.

This little Santa postage stamp is the cutest stamped on Kraft.  I added a little twine to tie it all together.  The paper I used is a Recollections Kraft Holiday pack. 

I used the small rounded corners punch to round the corners. 

These little Tic Tacs are all spruced up!

These would work with gum packs to or any mint treat.  What a fun crafty way to add a little flare to your Christmas Stockings. 

This will be my last post before Christmas.  I'll be spending the weekend with my family, cooking and relaxing.  Wishing you and yours a splendid Holiday.  And remember to take time to relax and enjoy.  The holidays after all are about spending time with those you love, remembering those that have left us and just enjoying the moment.

  6. I really like the vintage look you pulled off. Neat that there's no 'poop' in sight, also!! My mom goes through tic-tacs like a madwoman - I'm so liftin' this!

  7. I should use this idea and come up with a clever saying about not smoking. A friend of mine is trying to quit and he used tic tacs to help supplement, so maybe a cute tic tac holder and a helpful saying will help him achieve his goals.

Halloween Decor- Pennies a project

SIX PROJECTS ON A DIME!

Are you looking for some Halloween Decor ideas?  I have a few for you.  These are projects I have been working on for the past couple of weeks.  BANNERS
I made Boo and Beware for my 2 corner windows.  These are cut from Birthday Bash, using Recollections Halloween paper and Stampin Up Halloween Paper.
I made this Tim Holtz Banner, "Trick or Treat".  Hangs over my spooky dining room.  Black sheets are there for the holidays.
Cut from Birthday Bash and the frames/ font are a Sophisticated cut.  I added beads from Walmart and skulls are a $1 store necklace cut up.
This BIG Banner is "Happy Halloween"
The charms are Walmart and the tulle is from an old Halloween costume.  This glitter spiders are a $1 store find.

Happy Halloween!
Candles
Cheap-o-la...You can make this on a budget...promise!  I picked these candelabras up from Michaels for $12 at 50% off.  I bought them on a day they there was an additional 25% off so in the end they were less than…

Altered Halloween Advent Calendar w/ Video

WOW, I think this is my biggest Halloween project yet.  It took me 5 days to complete and I could have kept adding!!!  As you know I adore Halloween and yes I have begun bringing out my Halloween goodies.  Lots of photos in this post and there is so much to see.  So lets get into the project and get you inspired for Halloween!
I was asked by Scrapbooker's Paradise (where I teach) to make one of these Kaiser Craft Shadow Boxes...with a Halloween Theme!!!  Arm twisted and mission accepted.  I am going all Tim on this one! I started by spraying all the pieces with a Hammered Finish in a gun metal grey. The set even comes with numbers;) I used My Minds Eye Happy Haunting paper to create each box with a great pattern paper background.  Then using all my Tim Holtz goodies and $1 Store finds I went to town decorating.  I used various numbers from the rub ons, metal numbers, wooden and those that came with the Shadow Box.   Be sure to dry fit before gluing!  It took me 4 hours to die cut…

Halloween Laminated Fridge Magnets

BOO... how could this be scary!

This week the Xyron Team is showing off LAMINATE!  I have been dying to make some pumpkin magnets!  So I did!  I could have kept going with my laminating my Halloween Dies but one must exercise restraint.  After all, this is my first time making Halloween Magnets.


I cut my pumpkin and face first. I wanted to have the ability to ink the way I wanted. But I also did a couple of cuts pre inked too so I could try it out. It's all about experimenting!
I did ink up my pumpkin and add a little distressing to the edges.  Get the pieces ready... they are going through the Creative Station!

With the inked up and already laminated chipboard ready to be cut... here's where I have no idea if it will work.  To keep control I cut facing down.  After all, these are laminated and I can't go back and ink!  IT WORKED and the rest are easily trimmed.
I can't believe how freakin' adorable and easy these are.  They took no time to make and just think of wha…
