This year I wanted to do a little something different for an Advent Calendar for my youngest son, he loves getting little toys and candy so I thought some cute little boxes would be perfect.
I used my Silhouette to die cut the boxes using the Lawn Fawn Peace Love Joy 6x6 paper pad and die cut the numbers adding one to each box.
I wrapped most of the boxes in twine and added some stars and tree die cuts to the larger boxes.
I got the tins from the Dollar Spot at Target - so glad that store has opened here in Canada!
This project was featured on I'm Impressed Blog today which is a local stamp and craft store. Please stop by and leave a comment for a chance to win an awesome prize during her Handmade for the Holidays Event.
Mt second project for the Colors of Christmas release party was a collection of Christmas Tags. Can't wait to see these all wrapped up on presents!
For the top three I used a standard shipping tag and covered them with patterned paper.
Then I added the cute die cuts, stickers and gems to them.
I love the little critters in this collection - so cute.
For the bottom three tags I used the die cut pad as the base for the tags.
Then I stamped the ornament onto patterned paper and again on white cardstock. I typed the recipients name on the white cardstock cut out just the centre potion and glued it to the one I had stamped on the patterned paper.
I love how it personalizes my gift tags.
For this tag I also added some cute small white pom poms to the snowflakes.
This week on the Imaginisce Blog we are having a release party for the awesome Colors of Christmas collection. Today it's my turn on the blog and one of the projects I am sharing a fun Ornament I made using an old American Crafts ribbon spool for the base.
For the first ornament I used the circle die cut shape to cover the front and back of the ribbon spool then added some red twine to the spool.
Then I added the cute sticker and a wooden spool to the top of the ribbon spool to add some stability and finished it off with the "Holiday Cheer" sentiment.
For the second ornament I covered the sides of the spool with patterned paper.
I used the cute owl sticker for the centre of the spool. Isn't he so cute!
I finished this one off with the "Let it Snow" die cut.
I am so happy with how these ornaments turned out and will look so cute on our tree.
I gathered my embroidery hoops and doilies and used the super cute Crate Paper Bundled Up collection. These days my projects are never complete without some coordinating Epiphany Crafts charms and Epoxies.
I will be hanging these in my hallway once my Christmas Decorations go up.
The little boy and girl in this collection are so cute!
I can't wait to see these all hung up - I plan on finding some smaller hoops and making more so there is a good bunch of them hanging in the hallway.
