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!


Ok, there really is no snow, but I am super in love with two of the Stampin' Up! holiday sets!  I hope you already have the endless wishes set, because you can't get it anymore.  I think that is really sad because it's super awesome!  But I just had to share the cards!  And my second fave is the snow day set.  I am in love with that snow man!!

My disclaimer: none of these ideas are 100% mine, they are heavily influenced by things I saw on pinterest or from other Stampin' Up! demos.  I hope that my ideas might inspire you!  Happy Crafting!
