Gift Wrapped Candy Bar

This is a quick and easy Christmas gift or stocking stuffer.   A 6x7 inch piece of Christmas Cocoa Specialty Paper from the Holiday Mini was wrapped around a Kit Kat candy bar.  The Crimper (page 188) was used to crimp the ends.  The punch ornament was used to punch out a tag, which was wrapped around 5/8 inch Real Red Grosgrain ribbon with gold cord from the Holiday Mini.

You can make these in advance to have "ready" for impromptu gifts.  They make a fun presentation and you can vary the measurements to cover any candy bar or holiday treat.

Merry Moments Purse Box

 This is a small gift box, made with Real Red card stock,   DP from the Merry Moments pack (page 160) and the sentiment from the Holiday Mini Delightful Decorations set.  The box measures 4 inches across, 1 inch wide and 3 inches high.   I made the small box and then created a Designer Series Paper "flap" which attaches in the front with velcro.  The sentiment is attached to a Real Red piece, run thru the Big Shot Petals-A-Plenty Embossing folder and then punched with the Curly Label Punch (page 187).  The Curly Label piece was layered on a Whisper White layer from the Big Shot Mover and Shapers Curly Label Die.

I debated adding a Designer Series paper "purse strap" and tag and decided against it (or ran out of energy!)  This little box could hold candy, cookies, jewelry, gift cards or other Christmas goodies.

Well, we made it to Friday!!  Happy weekend.

Berry Christmas Gift Cards

Ok, so this is my last  Berry Christmas (Holiday Mini) entry.  This is a set of 3x3 Gift Cards in a Medium Cellophane bag.  Remember that the cello bags are a handy place to put gifts of cards and there is a cello bag size whether your gift set is 3x3,  5 1/2 by 4 1/4 or what ever!

  This is a very easy gift set, with card base of Bashful Blue and Soft Suede trim.   The little scalloped trim beneath the bird image is a 1 1/4 inch Scallop Square Punch that has been cut off.  It makes a cute little trim element.


It's almost Friday!!!

Berry Christmas Continues!

Another neat aspect of the Berry Christmas set is that it is not just for Christmas.  This 3x3 card uses Soft Suede, Certainly Celery, Whisper White, Bashful Blue and the Soft Suede Patterns Designer Series Paper.   It was a very quick flower kind of card!

So much for Hump Day!!

Berry Christmas Scrapbook

This is an 8 1/2 by 8 1/2 Berry Christmas scrapbook page.  The colors are Soft Suede, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery and Whisper White.  Accessories include Soft Suede Patterns Designer paper and the 3/4 inch Real Red Polka-Dot grosgrain ribbon.

Markers were used to mask part of the sentiment, with repeated stamping used. Again, another quick project using the Berry Christmas stamp set from the Holiday Mini.

As you can begin to see from this series of posts, you can purchase the set and several accessories to complete a variety of cards and projects.  More to come soon.

Happy (gulp) Monday,

Berry Christmas tree

As promised, another Berry Christmas (Holiday Mini set) card.  In this example, the flower is used to build the Christmas Tree.  The "turtle dove" at the top is Bashful Blue.   The Real Red Polka-Dotted ribbon is positioned along one side.   The end of the sentiment was made by taking a square punch and positioning the flat end of the sentiment strip in a corner.  Add a coordinating button, punched flower and you have another fast card.  I just think that this is so cute with the little bird perched at the top.
