More projects to share!

Happy Aloha Friday!! Here are two more projects that we did at the gift card holder class. We did treat bags as well. I just love this one sheet box! You can find a wonderful tutorial by Beate Johns on splitcoast stampers HERE

We roller wheeled the snowflake design color on color, folded the box and added the sizzix scallop circle over the opening on top. I just love the curly punch bundle. It comes with four stamps and the curly punch. This box is perfect for small holiday treats!
Here's a project dug out of the archives. I remember making a bunch of these cute reindeer food packets to sell at a craft fair ages ago. I guess this is the new spin off on this cute reindeer food package.


I added the chunky glitter to oatmeal. There is a cute poem in the back of the header. If you are giving this to someone with small children, make sure you add a label somewhere that says DO NOT EAT! The glitter might not digest well and we don't want any sick children! I remember giving a pack of treats to my niece Jen (she is now almost 16) when she was really young. She insisted that her dad (my BIL) take out the ladder and climb on the roof to sprinkle these oats for the reindeer. He told her he would do it later but she insisted that he do it NOW so she could watch. Needless to say, my BIL did it but made sure he shared his story with me...we can laugh about it today :)
I'll be sharing the last project tomorrow...Don't forget, if you are interested in getting the supply listing and measurements for these projects, just send me an email.
Thanks for popping by today. The weekend is here! Hope you have some stamping on your "to do" list this weekend!

Love the curly label stamp you used and the deep red of the cardstock. Can't wait until I get the kit! Next year I guess I gotta take a second look at all of the Christmas stamps and order more!

P.S. I've seen the reindeer food packaged elsewhere on the blog and they used foor sprinkles (red) so it is digestable.

I love the deep red with the brown, too. It kinda has a velvet look to it. Very beautiful. The box has an elegant touch.

First time I've seen the Reindeer food. What a cute project.
