Christmas Gifts Class

I finally have the samples made and pictures taken for the Christmas Gifts Class that will be on Monday, November 21.  I will be sending out an email with more information.  If you are not on my email list or would like to attend, contact me at  

These projects are great for packaging gifts for teachers, bus drivers, secretaries, friends, paras at school, co-workers, etc.  So, make a list!  Okay, now for the projects....

The first is a sour cream container.  It can be made with cardstock and then fabric is tied around it for the ribbon as is done with the red and artichoke.  Otherwise, it can be made with designer paper as is shown with the ornament designer paper below.

Next up is the snowman box.  This is made with the Fancy Favors die cut for the Big Shot and then decorated.  For an idea, a hot chocolate packet, marshmallows, chocolate and a candy cane for stirring fit perfectly in this box. 

The next project is a stocking made from the Big Shot Stocking die and then embossed.  The first picture is more vintage with the red one being more traditional.  I like them both depending on the recipient.  A gift card as shown with the red one fits nicely in this.  There is not a lot of room, so the gift would need to be fairly small.

The last project is a small paper bag.  It is made from the packaging that comes in SU! orders.  To make it this size, I used the scallop square for the Big Shot.  White snowflakes were stamped on and the detail that makes it is the small clothespin that is holding the tag!  Hot chocolate packets, candy bars, candy canes, cookies and more can fit in this.
