Thank You Treats

Friday, November 25, 2011

Happy Black Friday! Don’t forget the Online Extravaganza is still going on. If you would like to place an Order for any of these sale items you can go to my website Here.

I made up a bunch of Thank You Treats for those placing orders. If you do not live near me I will send you the contents (except chocolates) to create these super cute treat holders. You can make them for any occasion. I will send you the contents to create 8 of these super cute little purse treat holders.

Aren’t they cute? I got this idea from Becky Roberts.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Shopping!

Week 8 of the 12 Weeks of Christmas

Saturday, November 19, 2011

We are on week 8 of our 12 Weeks of Christmas Projects/Cards. I have a super cute treat holder for you today using the stocking die and the Big Shot. I saw the skittles candy canes in the grocery store the other day and the stocking “horse” came to mind. Perfect! These remind me so much of when I was growing up we had those ponies on a stick toys. So I bought it and went right home to my stamp room to recreate the pony on a stick. I first made a box to sandwich between the two “horse” heads and the candy cane fell out, duh! Hmmm, I need a way to hold in the candy cane without gluing it into place. A few tries later and I accomplished my task. Here is a picture of my first horse:

Here is a picture of the horse I did in the video. Yes, there is a video tutorial. :)

Now here is the video:

The video is a little long and we had to edit it a bit; but I think you will get the idea. The box dimensions again are 5″ x 9 1/4″ score at 1 1/4″ and at 3 3/4″ with the 5″ side along the top of the simply scoring score tool. Turn the card stock and score with the 9 1/4″ side across the top of your simply scoring score tool at 4″ and then again at 5 1/4″ (in the video I said to score it at 5″ and then again at 5 1/4″.) Turn your card stock again so the 5″ side is across the top of your simply scoring score tool and score from 2 1/2″ down to 1 1/4″ flip your card stock over and do the same thing scoring at 2 1/2″ down to 1 1/4″. (This will leave you with 2 boxes on the left side top and bottom.) See the video on how to cut away 1 box and where to cut for the remaining boxes.

Here is a picture of the two horses:

These were really fun and I know my two great nephews are going to LOVE them!

Week 4 of the 12 Weeks of Christmas

Saturday, October 22, 2011

Today is week 4 of the 12 weeks of Christmas projects/cards. I hope you are enjoying these as much as I am. I’ve been busy getting ready for craft shows that I have coming up so here is another Treat/Gift card holder that you could make for Christmas or really any occasion.

Isn’t this just so cute? It holds actually 3 Hershey candy bars but in the video I used 2. You could also add in a gift card and make this an extra “SWEET” gift.

In the video I show you how to color the Silver Glimmer paper to any color you want. Way cool!

I hope that you enjoyed the video and will make some of these sweet treat holders for your Christmas gift giving.

You may order any of the supplies you need on my Stampin’ Up! website: www.gcalkins.stampinup.net
