Chocolate Gift

I thought it would be fun to make my chocolate square look like a wrapped gift.  I started with a 3 1/2 x 6 1/2 piece of designer paper.  On the long side I scored it at 1, 1 1/4, 3 3/4 and 4.  The bow builder punch creates a nice size bow to top the gift and finish it off.

Happy Wonderful Christmas Box

Here's an idea for Christmas wrap. The box is the Sizzix Bigz die, Box #2.  I simply added a few ribbons, a sentiment and candy cane. This time of year we need quick and simple, this is it. 😊

Reindeer Bag

When I received my Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits one of the dies reminded me of a deer antler, so I decided a reindeer would be one of my Christmas projects. I thought it would work with the owl punch but it didn’t. I searched through my dies and decided the corn die in the Cannery Set Framelits would be perfect. I cut a bit off the top then attached the antlers.  After adding the eyes and a red nose I had my reindeer! It’s so cute and better than I envisioned.

Season’s Greetings Snowman Shaker

Thought I'd use my fuse tool to create a Christmas project.  I glued a snowman and tree onto designer series paper then tucked it inside a photo sleeve. Before I sealed it with my fuse tool I added sequins. The tag, ribbon and jingle bell are attached to the outside.

Elf Cupcake

I don't know why I didn't think of this before. I used the witch legs and shoes from my Bewitched die set by Echo Park Paper Company to create elf legs and shoes. A Halloween die set that can be used for Christmas as well, yippee!  It seems I can have my cupcake and eat it too!! 😃

Very Merry Berry Basket

I hope this looks masculine. I really tried...I used deer paper and blue ribbon!😀 Although, I wonder how many guys really care about the wrapping. Don't you think they're more interested in the contents? 😉

Merry Little Christmas Chocolate

This little stocking stuffer has two Ghirardelli chocolate squares tucked inside.  I used the scalloped tag topper punch to create the wrap. The little clip was a happy surprise when I realized it fit perfectly inside the slot and kept it tightly closed.
