These are the projects we made yesterday at the stamp club I am a part of.
The little ornaments are made using the scallop circle punch. You punch out 6 scallops then fold them in half. You glue them together until you have a circle shape. We used gold elastic cord to create the loop used to hang the ornament.
The Santa is on top of a matchbox made with the matchbox big shot die. I wasn’t sure about this die at first, but now that I have used it, I love it. I ordered it and plan to make all sorts of little gifts with it for my coworkers. The Santa is made using the following punches: circle punch (I think it was the 1 3/4″) – face, 3/4″ circle – ball on hat, heart punch – hat, scallop circle – beard, modern label – brim of hat and hair, slit punch – mouth, standard office hole punch – eyes and nose. We just cut the pieces for the belt.
The gift bag is made from a standard brown paper lunch sack. We covered the front and the back with chocolate chip cardstock. We used the Petals-A-plenty impressions folder on the green piece of cardstock. This impressions folder is awesome. It gives such a deep impression. This folder will be useful even after Christmas is over. My upline said that she tried this folder on a piece of pink cardstock and it looked really spring-y. The stamp set we used is called “Patterned Pines” and is a level 1 hostess reward in the current holiday mini catalog.
Thanks for looking!
