Gift Card Holders

Hello Stampers!  At our team Christmas party, we also hold a gift card exchange.  Each person purchases a gift card and make a cute gift card holder for it.  We then play a game and exchange the holders.  People are so clever and creative!  Here are the holders:

Ornament Exchange

Hello Stampers!  I am so excited to share the ornaments that I received at our team Christmas party!  We hold an ornament exchange every year.  Everyone picks out an ornament to make, and then makes enough of them so everyone participating gets one.  Our only rule is that every ornament has to have SOMETHING Stampin' Up! on them.  Here is what I made:

IMG_5724-001 I used the star framelit and cut out 12 stars for each ornament.  I then folded the legs and simply adhered them together.  Some of the ornaments were stamped and some had the smaller stars on them.

Here are the ornaments that I received:

Since this was our party, we only had one person bring a show n' tell project.

Advent Calendar Tree

Hello Stampers!  Happy 1st day of December!  Where has this year gone!  Time just seems to keep flying by!

Every year I make Advent Calendars for my girls.  This year I saw the super cute tree on the Stampin' Up! blog and knew that I had to remember this idea and make some for myself!


Although there were not a lot of directions given, I knew that I would be able to figure something out!  Here is what I came up with:

IMG_5665-001 I thought they turned out super cute!  I used the Tiny Treat Boxes (135829) from the annual catalog.  You just so happen to get 25 boxes in the package and they are only $7.00!   Cut your designer series paper to 1 3/4" squares to adhere to the boxes.  I adhered to 5 sides of the box since you don't need any on the box bottom. 

I started with a small paper mache circle box for the base.  You can cover this with designer series paper also!  I was somewhat limited on the accessories I was going to use since one of the trees had to be transported to a college dorm!   I adhered 6 boxes to the circle box lid.  The second row is also 6 boxes.  The next rows up are 5, 4, 3, and 1 box.  I glued them together with a hot glue gun. 

Remember to position your boxes so that they open from the front of the box and not the top!!!  Now fill with candy, special notes, scriptures, or other tiny treats! 

Thanks for stopping by!
