Gift Card Holders

I was inspired by Kerry on the making of my gift card holders for my recent craft show. Kerry has some awesome ideas and is a very talented lady.

The designer paper is just scraps I had left in my stash. The stamp set I used is from Papertreyink and I used my scallop punches and added a bit of bling to them with Stickles. Again...I don't own the Top Note die and substituted my Nestie.

I really like how this Starbucks gift card holder came together and I will definitely be making more for just general gifts. I used my the large Nestie die...folded my card stock and off set the die and ran it through the Cuttlebug. You want to be able to open the holder...reason for the offset die. I ran one holder through a CB folder then I sponged some Chocolate Chip ink on the edges for depth. Added a velcro to the top for a closure. I also added a glue dot inside (with the plastic paper still on) to affix the gift card.
I found the Starbucks stamp at my local stamping/scrapping store...sorry too lazy at the moment to check the company.

A Little Christmas Gift Box

A bit ago SCS had little projects to make for Christmas...this Top Note Box is one of my favorites.
I do not own the top not die so I substituted my nestie die cut. I think it came out great and what a cute little box to give a gift card or a pair of earrings.

A Few Christmas Cards

I have a few Christmas cards to share with you all today. These were very easy to put together with Nichole's help from Papertreyink. You will need to scroll halfway down the page to see these cards. Here is the pdf file for the supplies and the directions.

Papertreyink is probably my favorite stamp company at the moment. Love Nichole's stamps, paper and inks! And the ribbon....ohhh my goodness. It is gorgeous!

More Christmas Crafts

While shopping in my local Michael's for craft show supplies I spied some hot cocoa cones up by the register for sale. I immediately had a light bulb moment....I can make these and sell at my craft show!

I bought the cone bags in the Wilton aisle...piping bags. I just did a google search for Hot Cocoa Cones...a bunch of instructions showed up. I believe I used the one from Martha Stewart. Printed a tag for instructions and used a Poinsettia eyelet from my stash of fancy eyelets.

I made up five Hot Cocoa Cones for the craft show and did not sell one...but my daughter brought them to her work and they all sold. Kinda funny what won't sell in one show and it will sell out in another.
These were fun to make and looked awesome!

Christmas Treats

Hi Everyone....I'm still here but just haven't posted in ages.

I did a craft show last Saturday and did somewhat ok. What was leftover my DD brought to her work and has sold quite a bit of Christmas items. Yeah!
I have had these store bought coffee cups/lids in my stash for ages and knew I wanted to make something for the craft show. This was the last item I made and sold out.

I put a packet of either hot cocoa or Oregon Chai tea and two gingerbread biscotti in each cup and decorated.
I used a retired SU! stamp set (Thanks a Latte) and colored with my watercolor crayons. The ribbon is SU! also. Went to my local coffee shop and asked for a hot cup sleeve. I then used this to make the red cup sleeve for my cocoa/tea cup. I even scored the sides...cute, cute, cute.
Wrapped in some cellophane and tied up with red ribbon...already for gift giving.
Love the way these turned out. Enjoy!
