On this 2nd Day of Christmas I wanted to share this gorgeous little pouch with you. It is a sweet little pouch that holds a pack of Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate mix. I have attached a fold circle at the top of the packet with Mini Glue Dots and then punched a hole in the middle and used that Cherry Cobbler cross stitched ribbon. I’ve used the oval framelits with the stitched oval framelits on top.
This was a really simple pouch to make. All I did was measure how big the satchet was and worked out what size the pouch had to be. The seam was half an inch on the side and bottom.
Welcome to the first post of my 12 Days of Christmas Series.
I wanted to created 12 projects that you can make yourself with Stampin’ Up! products that are cheap and easy.
I make this cute little pizza box with matching cards and envelopes. The cards and envelopes are 3″x3″ and are great for on top of christmas gifts or for your kids to write in for their friends.
I have used a few stamp sets on this project but the one that stands out is the “Hearts Come Home”. It is a gorgeous little set with cute houses, Santa flying with his reindeer and some lovely sentiments. I have used elements from the Be Merry Rosette Kit along with the branch from Colorful Seasons stamp set. I added an embellishment from the Year of Cheer Embellishments. The christmas baubles are from the Carols of Christmas Stamp set.
The Pizza Boxes are super cute too and I am hoping that they may carry over into the next catalogue but we won’t know till later in the month. So if you love these boxes as much as I do, then don’t wait another minute, go to my online shop and order them today.
As OnStage was on the Gold Coast this year we needed to travel and find accommodation. I booked some accommodation for 4 and had 3 amazing fellow demos staying with me including one of my fabulous downlines.
At every major Stampin’ Up! event we, as demonstrators, have the opportunity to swap ideas with other demonstrators. We are encouraged to make a card front or 3D item to swap with other demonstrators so we can get some additional ideas.
I was really struggling with ideas this time around but after a great chat with one of my downlines I was inspired by re-using one of my ideas that I’d used previously as a demonstration.
So I made these card fronts as my swap using numerous colours. I used the Faux Bleaching Technique. I started by sponge braying ink onto the card stock in an ombre look. I then spritzed the hexagon embossing folder with water and then placed the card stock with ink facing down onto the embossing folder. Take the card stock off and you should see that the water has taken off the ink in the wet places. Let it dry and then stamp another image over the top in a darker ink.
You can purchase all the products to make these cards at my online shop.
