Chocolate Fold Overs

These are so cute and soooooooooo easy you won't believe it!  I couldn't believe it when I found the instructions.  If you need some adorable quick stocking stuffers or a coworker gift or two these are the way to go.  I made these from the Stampin Up! Merry Little Christmas paper pack for an upcoming craft show.  All you need is a double sided paper that's 6" x 6".  Double sided is the best for this project since you see clearly both sides of the paper.  It just gives your project that extra umph and visual appeal.  Hope you enjoy this one, you can mass produce these easily.

Fold 6"x6" paper in half diagonally
Fold right side up to edge of left point and glue dot
Fold left side up to the edge of the right point and glue dot
Fold over the top flap so you see the opening and glue dot this flap down
That's it!  Fill with your favortie candy or treat.  
I glue dotted my candies in place because these were for a craft show.

Happy Crafting!


Coffee Cup Gift Card Holders

How cute can you get!  These coffee cup gift card holders are a necessity this holiday season for teachers and coworkers and anyone you would like to extend a warm thank you to.  I made these in a variety of ways this year.  Some I embossed, heat embossed, and decorated til my heart was content.  The only non Stampin Up! items I used were the wooden snowflakes and a holly punch that was a Martha Stewart brand.  All other materials you can purchase from Stampin Up! through my site in the Shop Now section.  And if you're in need of a Stampin Up! demonstrator I would be more than happy to help with that.  Send me a message and I'll get back with you right away.  Here are the instructions for the base of the card holder:

Cut Whisper White 1/2" x 3 1/2" score on the 1/4" mark
Cut your choice of color at 3 1/2" x 11" score at 5 1/2"
Fold and Cut 1/4" at an angle off this 11" cardstock
Flip over and repeat angle cut
Glue with Tombo the small white piece to the outside of the "cup"
Tear and Tape three inside edges leaving top edge open and seal
Decorate the outside as you like
If you are embossing do this before Glue and Tear and Tape steps

Happy Crafting!


Santa Clause Is Coming To Town Cards

Here is a set of cards that will bring that Jolly Old Saint Nicolas to life in your house.  These are Santa's belt cards with the sentiment "Spread some Christmas cheer" on the inside in Real Red.  If you would like directions please send me a message.  I used both my Stampin Up! products and my cricut to create these adorable little cards.  Happy Crafting and Merry Christmas!


Snowman Cards

Today I have made my version of the snowman half circle card for you.  This is a lovely card to attach to any gift or as a send alone Christmas card.  Most of my materials are from Stampin Up!, however, I have used some from other sources to get the look that I really wanted.  I'll point those items out to you in the instructions below.  Have fun making this card and feel free to send me pictures of your versions so I can see what you've created!

1 - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" Whisper White Cardstock (SU)
1 - 5 1/4" x 4 1/4" Tempting Turquoise Cardstock (SU)
1 - 3" Whisper White Circle (SU) I also used my cricut to cut this circle
2 - Basic Black large circles from the Owl Builder Punch SU)
1 - Small triangle from Peek A Boo Peach (SU) cut freehand
1 - 2 7/8" Basic Black label cut with my cricut
1 - 2 5/8" Whisper White label cut with my cricut

Emboss your Tempting Turquoise piece with whatever embossing folder you like, I used one from Hobby Lobby

Use (SU) Flurry of Wishes Stamp set with Basic Black Ink

* Whisper White stamped label to your Basic Black label
* Eyes and nose to your 3" 1/2 circle in Whisper White
* Use self stick washi tape (I used SU Glitter tape) for scarf
* Adhere snowflake embellishment to scarf (from Michaels)

And there you have it! Your card is complete, you can finish it off by putting a white gel pen dot in each of the eyes.  Hope you had fun!


Snow Village Card

This set was the December Paper Pumpkin set from 2016.  I never got around to using it but I pulled it out this year and loved it so I decided to put it to good use.  If you really like this particular Paper Pumpkin set I believe you can purchase them from Stampin Up! here on my Shop Now section.  I know you can purchase some of the older Paper Pumpkins so hopefully this one will still be available.  

I used all the materials from this set to make these cards, the only thing that I used that was not in the set were the stars from the Detailed Santa Thinlets on the black cardstock.  The blue envelopes were included with the set so everything you need is right there in one box. I hope you enjoy these adorable cards!  Happy crafting!
