It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas….


Gee its not even Thanksgiving yet and here we are thinking about Christmas already.  Well at least I am.  Are you?  You know you have to get out there and get those big ticket toys before they go out of stock before Christmas.  And how about all your crafting buddies.  Have you bought them their gifts yet?  If you haven’t check out the Cutters Creek Store and look at all the neat things Kim is selling.  And if there is something you want and its not in the store contact Kim here.

My projects today is using one template to make two different Christmas design layouts.  They are narrow pillow boxes that will hold sweet treats or a small gift like jewelry.  I made the templates using Paint Shop Pro a very long time ago and thought what a good time to dust the template off and use this year.  All supplies I used to make the layouts are below the photos.

Poinsettia Pillow Box_CuttersCreekProject_111712

Poinsettia was cut using my Cricut. Then I used glitter tape for the red and green bands on the bottom.  Sprayed the poinsettia with Gold Glitter Dust. Center of poinsettia has small dots of Christmas green stickle glitter glue.  Ribbon and Christmas paper from my personal stash.

Note:  The Glitter Tape is sold by Kim but she had a club you could join and you got 3 rolls for 6 months at an outstanding price.  Check with Kim here if you want to know more.

The snowflakes are by Die-namics called Let it Snowflake.  The snowflake tag was made from the larger snowflake using my eBosser and hand stamped “Joy”.  All other snowflakes were cut using my eBosser.  And then I added some Diamond stickles glitter glue to all the snowflakes.  Ribbon and paper from my personal stash.  So pretty in person!

Note: Die-namics Let it Snowflake is sold out Sad smile but contact Kim if you are interested here.
