Double Hershey Bar Holder

The holiday season is upon us and who doesn't need some stocking stuffers?  I have these little square fabric Christmas baskets for my nieces and nephew that I fill each year because... Santa comes to Auntie's house too!  I like to fill with a few small items like a pair of socks, hair ties for the girls, a gift card, and a little bit of candy.  One year I did a hot cocoa theme with hot cocoa packets, candy canes, a cute Christmas mug, some Hershey Kisses sprinkled in and a gift card for Starbucks.  Yes Starbucks... the kids like their smoothies and so it is a treat for them.

Today's project is this awesome Double Hershey Bar holder.  These are great for any theme really... just change up your designer series paper, colors and accessories.  But seeing as these will be going in the kids Santa baskets, I kept with the Christmas theme.

I featured the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper and Warm Hugs Bundle for the first one.  Let's take a look:

Is that not the cutest holder?  Who wouldn't love 2 Hershey Bars!  And they are really easy to make and I'll make it easier by giving you all the measurements.  Just watch my video below to see how I put them together. 

But first, here is another one that I make with the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series paper, the So Many Snowflakes Dies, along with the gems, glimmer paper and ribbon which you can get in a complete product suite called Snowflake Splendor.  My card base color is Balmy Blue.

Here is what you will need to cut and score for the basic holder:

  • Card stock:       7-1/8 x 8-1/4
    • Score on the 7-1/8 side at:   2-1/4, 2-5/8, 3, 5-1/4 and 6
    • Score on the 8-1/4 side at:  1, 1-3/8, 6-7/8 and 7-1/4
  • Card stock:       2 pieces cut to 2 x 5-1/2
    • score both on the 2" side at 1/4 and 5/8
  • Designer Series Paper
    • 2 pieces cut to 1-1/8 x 5-1/4 (pocket covers)
    • 1 piece cut to 2-1/8 x 5-1/4 (front cover)
    • 1 piece cut to 1 x 5-1/4 (front flap... rounded corners)  

Here's my YouTube Video to see how this all comes together:

Thank you to "Mixed Up Craft" for the idea!

We Bee Stamping Team Blog Hop - Simple Christmas Gifts

BeeBlogHopOpeningIcon

Hello there!  And welcome to our We Bee Stamping Team Blog Hop for December.  This month we are all sharing a Simple Christmas Gift made with Stampin' Up! products.  

I have a fun and beautiful project and I really hope you not only like it, but try and make one too!  

People who know me, know that I have been crafting most of my adult life.  There just about isn't anything I won't try... well, except for crocheting.  I just never was able to pick up on that craft.  Who knows, maybe one day I will try again.

Each year I try to come up with something different to make.  It could be a wall hanging, decorated glass etching, floral arrangement, or a host of other things.  This year I decided on ornaments.  I have done a ton of ornaments in the past but I think this one makes it all the worth while to revisit the ornament idea!  I just love how it came out and the poinsettia flower was pretty quick and easy to make.

Ornament featuring the Poinsettia Petals Bundle:

PicsArt_12-01-07.11.31

Details:

  • Gold Emboss 3 sizes of the Poinsettia Flower petals on Real Red card stock then die cut them out
  • Using Stampin' Spritzer filled with rubbing alcohol and several drop of Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint, heavily sprits the 3 flowers
  • While still damp, crimp up each petal
  • Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, adhere the 3 layers of petals together making sure not to overlap the leaves
  • Add a Beaded Pearl Embellishment to center with glue dots
  • Die cut 5 Sprigs from Brushed Metallic cardstock and adhere to back of poinsettia
  • Cut 3 pieces of Real Red 3/8" Sheer Ribbon to 6" lengths.  Cut ends to an angle, fold in half and adhere to back with glue dots
  • Cut 2 pieces of Gold Cording from the Wonder of the Season ribbon combo pack and adhere onto back of flower with glue dots*
  • Punch a circle out of Real Red card stock to cover all the ribbon and springs on back of poinsettia.  Circle punch can be 1-1/2, 2, or 2-1/4, which ever size you have.  I used the 1-1/2" Circle Punch. 

*The 2 pieces of cording:  one piece is to tie the poinsettia to the neck of the ornament.  The second piece is to make a loop to hang the ornament. 

  • add a couple of glue dots to the back of the poinsettia so it sticks to a glass or plastic ornament
  • hang and enjoy.... or add a tag with a sweet sentiment for a special someone.

SAVI Sunday - Episode 40 How To Make a Pillow Box

SAVI Sunday - Episode 40:  How To Make a Pillow Box

Happy Sunday to you!  The sun is shining so bright today on this last Sunday of November.  It is just a beautiful day.  

Today I wanted to share a video on how to make a Pillow Box.  These are great for putting a gift card in them, a little treat, or maybe some cash.  The finished, fillable area is about 3/4 x 2-1/2 x 3-3/4".  So you can fill with a number of things.  Let's take a look at my pillow box finished off with Sheer Real Red ribbon and a poinsettia from the Poinsettia Place Suite.  

PicsArt_11-29-12.31.20

I absolutely love how this turned out.  And although you can't see the shine of the flower, I did use the Brushed Metallic Cardstock to die cut the poinsettia petals.  This picture though, does show you the different hues or colors of the Brushed Metallic card stock that comes in the pack.  You get 6 sheets (2 each of the three metallic colors). 

Here is my YouTube Video explaining how to make the Pillow Box.

To create make sure to watch the video:

  • You will need a piece of card stock (or use Designer Series Paper) cut to 5 x 5-1/2. 
  • On the 5-1/2" side score at 1/2" and then 3" (or as in my video using the Stampin' Up! Paper Trimmer which was 1/2" from the right then 2-1/2" from the left).  The video will show you!
  • Trace your arcs and cut out
  • Create your scores
  • Punch half circles to create thumb tabs
  • Adhere the tab
  • Fold up and decorate

SAVI Sunday- Episode 36 Gold Hoop Ornaments

SAVI Sunday - Episode 36:  Gold Hoop Ornaments

Well, my Sunday did not go according to plan.  In NE Ohio, we had very high winds and snow.  Yes, snow on November 1st!  With the winds came disrupted internet service.  My Wi-Fi was off and on all afternoon and after the third upload attempt, I said, I guess this was just not meant to be for today.  

Anyway, here is my Savi Sunday just a day late.  I really hope you like my projects, three cute little ornaments all made with the Gold Hoop Embellishments and the Quite Curvy Celebrations product suite releasing November 3, 2020.

Cocktail Holder

Total Fun Project!  I did a Facebook Live video a few weeks ago showing how I made these.  They are so fun and easy to make that you could make as a fun party favor in no time. 

The Rainbow Glimmer Paper is a definite personal favorite and it is the perfect thickness for this project.  Tie it off with Metallic Mesh Ribbon from the 2020 holiday catalog, and a tag... Love this project. 

PicsArt_09-13-05.56.59

Project Details:

  • cut Rainbow Glimmer paper to 5-1/2 x 9
  • score it at 3-3/4 and 4-1/4 on both sides... along 5-1/2 side
  • score at 1/2" on the long side

Here is a close-up of the tag I made.  I stamped the small word phrases in Melon Mambo ink and the word Cocktails in Mango Melody.  Take a scrap piece of Whisper white and stamp the glass in Mango Melody, filler glass stamp in Mango Melody then cut die.  Use a Dimensional to add the glass to the tag.
