Here we go! J
I thought it would be FUN to create something special for the Christmas Holiday…take a peek ~
I LOVE the My Creations items that Close To My Heart carries in our Idea Book!! There are 17 different base items, ready for you to add your paper, ink & embellishments to create your OWN handcrafted item! My Creations items make WONDERFUL gifts for EVERYONE, especially as Christmas is approaching!!
I planned to use our FABULOUS new washi tape on this project, but I wanted to use it in a different way...so I used the red chevron washi around the lid at the top (the normal way), AND the juniper (green) colored washi at the bottom of this container.
Hmmm, the green washi- do you see it?? It’s not straight at the bottom, why is it scalloped??? J
I adhered the washi to a piece of white cardstock, and then cut around the dotted circles to create a border with the washi tape!!! FUN!!
I enjoyed using an older, but still orderable stamp set A Holiday. The price point is AMAZING- just $6.95!!
Did you know that single stamp sets (not in a kit) that coordinate with our Cricut cartridges are still available to order?? Check out the list on your consultants website!!!
On the lid & base of this container I cut my holly leaves with the Art Philosophy cartridge and then stamped away! How QUICK & EASY!!
***This container would be the PERFECT gift to fill up with yummy goodies and give to a neighbor, teacher or friend…however, my mind went in a different direction. J
I thought...Why not create something for children...maybe for your Sunday School children or even nieces or nephews…
SO - I made something to fill this container J …
fun packets of sparkly, Christmas pencils with an ADORABLE tag!!!
By using our scallop punch, 1 1/4” circle punch and some FABULOUS stamp sets (see list below) it was quite easy to create these toppers and adorable tags!!
I can’t WAIT to hand these out to little people!! (Actually, I’d even like one myself..LOL!! J)
