Christmas Gifts Part 3

This is the last installment of my Christmas Gifts.  The first is an old baking soda can that I covered with Ski Slope background paper  Just as in the clear paint buckets, I used the Scallop Edge punch to scallop around the bottom of the Chocolate Chip cardstock.  I was in a glittery mood so I took a piece of Whisper White and kinda curved it when I cut it.  Used 2-way glue to add glitter to make it look like snow and then adhered that to the bottom of the can.  Stamped Mr. Twigster in Chocolate Chip onto Whisper White and colored him with an Aqua Painter and ink pads… Bashful Blue and Tangerine Tango (I believe).  I cut him out and adhered these tiny little Christmas bulbs that I’ve had for oh maybe 15 years.  Yes, I finally used them!

The turquoise tin is actually another cookie container.  My good friend had a cookie exchange and I took my cookies in this tin.  Of course I left the tin and the Mr. Twigster can for her.

I used tissue paper and wheeled the Snow wheel in Bashful Blue.  Then I simply cut a 2 1/2″ strip of Bashful Blue cardstock and wrapped it around the container.  The biggest layer of the medallion is actually cut from chipboard that I had laying around.  Yes, another piece of stuff I finally used!  I layered a Coluzzled Kiwi Kiss circle on top of that and then I layered little Mr. Penguin from Punch Pals onto that.  I used the smallest scallop circle from the Sizzix die for that.  All in all, these projects took very little time!

Christmas Gifts Part 2 – Mini Magazine Holder

Here’s the 2nd installment of my long overdue Christmas Gifts.  This particular project was given to my son’s teacher.  I saw these cute little magazine holders and just had to try one.  Here’s the pattern I used as the basis for my version of this project.  There are many other versions including a holder that holds regular-sized cards.  My cards measured 3×3 and I think I fit nine plus envelopes into the holder.  I used my favorite color combination these days – Basic Gray, Not Quite Navy, and Kiwi Kiss.  I also used one of my favorite new stamp sets Pocket Silhouettes and Typeset Alphabet.  Also included in this fun project are the scallop circle punch, gray taffeta ribbon, and Urban Garden background paper.

Enjoy!  If you have any questions, please let me know.

Christmas Gifts Part 1 – Cookie Bucket

I know it’s after the holidays, but I thought I could stretch it just a weeeee bit longer.  If I can get myself together, I’ll post a few more samples this week.  We’ll see how that goes.  This is my daughter’s first year of middle school.  Gone are the days of making a few teacher gifts.  She has 7 teachers.  Of course we had to have one for each of her teachers.

Here’s my first installment for your viewing pleasure.  I purchased the clear paint buckets from Staples oh so long ago.  I’ve finally used them.  Each of the buckets is a little bit different.  The height of the designer paper isn’t really important.  Just make sure you like the look!

Cookie Holders

Cookie Containers

I took this idea from Nichole Heady’s blog {capture the moment}.  Boy, does she have some really neat stuff out there.  It’s a constant source of inspiration for me!  The paper is Stampin’ Up’s! Ski Slope designer series background paper.  I decorated the bottom edge of the top paper with the Scallop Edge Punch.  Used the Punch Pals set to stamp the little penguin on the smallest scallop from the Scallop Circle Die #2 for the Big Shot.  Colored the penguin with an Aqua Painter and SU! ink pads and then layered that on top of another Big Shot die.  It’s actually a flower die from the Flower Layers w/ Leaf.  If you look carefully, you can see that I stacked my Oreo Truffles according to flavor (I know… it’s a little anal).  I separated them using the larger of the two circles from the Scallop Circle Die #2.  I had to experiment with a few different types of paper (first I tried vellum… didn’t work too well and all the truffles fell down the sides of the paint bucket) when I finally decided that cardstock worked the best.

Hope you enjoy my take on the cookie container.  If you have any questions or suggestions, please leave me a comment and let me know.
