It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…..

This  past Saturday we were at a Christmas craft fair in Denver NC. I took some pictures in hopes it might give you some good ideas for gifts this year. I’ll also be in Gastonia at the Farmers Market Cradt Fair on December 5 and 12th. The Farmers Market is located on Long street just down from the QT.

Behind these sweet smiling faces are Hershey Bars.  Yumm!  And you can hide a gift card in the back of them.  Use your Stampin’ Up punches to make eyes, heart smiles, and buttons.  I used the Stampin’ Up Uniball marker for the highlight in their eyes.  Snowman hat is made from infant mitten and Stampin’ Up Bakers Twine.  The scarf is from Stampin’ Up knited ribbon trim – you may find some retired twine  on my web site clearance rack

These little guys are made from Snow Place stamps and framelits #140844 in the Holiday catalog.  They each hold a Hershey kiss…..just perfect for a holiday dinner plate, small gift for classmates, or a fun treat to drop in a lunch bag for that special friend.

How To:

  •   cut a strip 1″ x 4 1/4″ of Whisper White cardstock and use Stampin’ Up Tear & Tape #138995 to attach the kiss to the middle of the strip of Whisper White cardstock.
  • Stamp your snowman or penguin and die cut it plus another diecut with out the stamped image for the back
  • adhere stamped image to one side of the strip and black to the back
  • now adhere together at the head.  You will have to cut off part of the stip for the snowbaby.

I love the beautiful poinsettia’s made from the Festive Flower Builder Punch #139682  They decorate the top of a Pillow Box made from the Square Pillow Box Thinlits dies #139657….a very easy box to put together!

One of our favorites….reindeer noses!

You too can make these fun treats!  Just use the owl punch for the reindeer body.  I used a retired snowflake punch to make the antlers.  Add googly eyes and a Stampin Up red pom pom from the trim #139617
