Gift Givers - cutest set in the Holiday Mini! I love this adorable and versatile set, and it seemed like the perfect thing to showcase for our Llama all-holiday hop.
Halloween decor or treat holder
My son's teacher and his Den Mother will both be getting one of these little hats very soon! I was really torn this year trying to decide "witch" die to order for my Big Shot. I finally decided on the Petal Cone die, because I was so impressed with how versatile it is. Not just pretty Victorian-style treat-holders, you can also make hats, baskets, hearts, carrots, and maybe even more things I haven't seen yet. Here I used 2 1/2 die cuts instead of the usual 2 to make a hat with a pentagon base instead of a square base. Can't find my circle cutter yet (I moved a few weeks ago), so I traced a dessert plate onto the Basic Black cardstock for the brim. Sadly, they retired all the Halloween colors of striped grosgrain ribbon, tho they do still make it in black...
Thanksgiving napkin ring
Used the Lace Ribbon Border Punch on Chocolate Chip cardstock to make this super-easy napkin ring. Just glue the ends together, then glue on the funny little turkey. I don't have the Curly Label Punch yet... better put it on my next order so I can whip up a couple dozen of these for my family's holiday get-togethers! The napkin is embossed with the Finial Press folder.
I got some of these oh-so-pretty Everyday Elegance Simply Sent kits during the October promotion. If you buy 2 kits before the end of the month you can choose one of the coordinating stamp sets FREE. Here, tho, I'm using a sentiment from the Short and Sweet set. I used Chocolate Chip and Poppy Parade markers to ink the reindeer from the stocking in the Gift Givers stamp set, punched out the image with the 1 3/8" Circle Punch, and accented with a Scalloped Circle in Poppy Parade and a little 5/8" ribbon. Easy-peasy, lemon squeezie!
