The Christmas Ideas Continue

Two blog posts in one day!  It's crazy time over here, or a follow up to lazy time.  Or maybe after a busy time.  I've been seeing so many inspiring ideas on pinterest that I needed to get mine organized so I could share them.

I hope these might inspire you!

First up is this super cute candy cane reindeer.  Directions below.

So this little guy is made using the envelope punch board.  Cut your card stock 4.5x4.5.  Score and punch at 1 inch and 1 5/8 inches.  Look at the picture below.

Cut the tiny tabs on one end but not the other.  Then just fold it all up (using some glue dots to secure it) to make a tiny narrow box with one end open (that's where the candy canes will hang out).  The head is a 1 3/4 scallop circle punch, edges sponged with the same color ink.  The nose is the 1/2 inch punch and the eyes are from Stampin' Up's totally awesome owl punch.  Accent the nose and eyes with the white gel pen.  Tie a piece of gumball green ribbon around and add a tiny greeting!  Voila!

These cards were made for holding gift cards! They feature smooch spray!  It's so sparkly!

This is a mini scrapbook made with 4 envelopes from the envelope punch board. And lots of our beautiful DSP.

A cute, quick little tag, great way to use up those little bits of paper!


  1. Hi. I love the darling reindeer!! Is there somewhere online I could get directions? Thank you!

    1. Hi Stephanie, thanks for checking out my blog and liking my little reindeer! I set out to update the blog with instructions AND somehow deleted the whole reindeer part!!! So I will fix it very soon(perhaps when in a less tired state) and have that info for you.

    2. Hi again Stephanie, the blog is now fixed and updated. The directions are pretty basic, so let me know if you need any more help. Happy Crafting!
