Stamp Club - December

It would have been really smart if I would have shared with you the projects I made or classes I held during the month of December actually IN DECEMBER, but the busy-ness got a hold of me and it just didn't happen, so I'm going to try to play catch up with some projects I'd like to share! Forgive me for the lateness, but if you see something you like you can tuck the idea away for next year!

December's stamp club was a lot of fun! The hostess wanted to make some hot cocoa holders, so I designed a couple of simple and easy to re-create samples for each of the ladies to make.

The first one was a matchbook style hot cocoa holder using the Nestle cocoa packets (I can't believe I didn't take a picture of it open!). Basically the front tucks under the flap at the top. When opened it reveals the hot cocoa packet. This would be extra cute if you tucked a candy cane somewhere.

Stamp Set: Tags Til Christmas (available in wood or clear mount, but only until January 3rd!)

Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper

Ink: Cherry Cobbler

X-Large Scallop punch, 1 3/4" Circle punch, Dimensionals, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Old Olive striped grosgrain ribbon (retired), Crop-A-Dile (to punch holes to thread ribbon through)

The second hot cocoa holder had a bit more steps to it. This one uses the Land O Lakes hot cocoa packets. The hot cocoa is inside the pocket until you pull the ribbon to reveal the hot cocoa.

Stamp Set: the hot cocoa image is from a retired set borrowed from my sister...I can't remember the name!, the snowflakes are from a retired hostess set from last year's catalog

Paper: Old Olive, Real Red, retired Designer Series Paper from "I Wish" Simply Scrappin' kit

Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Versamark (for the snowflakes)

embossing powder, Sticky Strip, 1 3/4" Scallop Circle punch, 1 3/8" Circle punch, 1 1/4" Circle punch, Real Red polka-dotted grosgrain ribbon (retired), Horizontal Slot punch (retired)

And, because it was Christmas time, I just had to give each of the ladies a fun little gift filled with peppermint-chocolate candies. I happened to find these cute little jars at Michaels crafts for only $1.00! I was hooked and snagged up 10 of them right there on the spot. I jazzed them up a bit to add some sparkle...the ladies loved them!

Here is the hostess gift for the month of December. I made this little box that has a divider in it. One side is filled with mini candy canes and the other side has little tags that can be used to dress up gift packages. I made a cover using some snowflake acetate and then tied a ribbon around the entire box.
