Dashing Christmas projects

This weekend I had a few ladies come to make some Christmas projects. I used the SU! Dashing designer series paper on them along with Red and Olive cardstock. The stamps sets I used were Big On Christmas, Punch Pals and The Snowflake Spot. It was a lot of fun! Here are the things that we made. The first pic is of round tin ornaments that I cased from a friend, Kim G. (Kimberly6977) on SCS. Aren’t they the cutest? You can punch holes in the top of the tins with a Crop-A-Dile to run the ribbon through. Then punch some circles in the dp to line the bottom. The images were stamped, colored, cut out and popped up inside with dimensionals. Then just add a bit of glitter and glue the lid on with Crystal Effects. This is such a fun project. These tins have been around a few years but Kim’s use of the Big On Christmas images gave them such a fun look!

The second pic is a glass ball ornament that we rolled strips of paper onto a pencil and dropped inside. Just cut your strips of paper 1/2″ x 6″. Easy peasy!

And the last pic shows the other 3 projects. The Star Box looks so elegant in red with the red & white stripe paper! You can find directions to make the star box here. The can is a decorated fruit can. Just open the bottom of a pop-top can with a safety can opener, eat the fruit and wash it out. Then fill it with candy or small gifts and glue the lid back onto the bottom with Crystal Effects. And the 3rd one pictured is another gum holder. I have the directions and measurements posted here. The only thing I think is missing on these is glitter….LOL. I may have to go back and add some later! 😉
