Christmas Crafting on Facebook LIVE

Just finished some Christmas crafting and chatting on Facebook LIVE in my Ink and Inspirations Stampers Group!  It's been a while and it's always so much fun to share a little crafting time with friends.

The first project was this Christmas cone to use with this antique bed spring.  I plan to fill it with mints to use in my stamp room.  It all started with a 8" square piece of the Presents and Pinecones Designer Series Paper.

Diy-christmas-table-decorThese next two are smaller cones created with a 4" square piece of designer paper.  They make cute ornaments with a sweet treat tucked inside.

2016 Easy Stampin' Up! Christmas Gift Ideas Video 2

2016-easy-christmas-gift-ideas2-aToday's Stampin' Up! project is an easy Christmas idea that you can give as  a gift to a friend or neighbor.  Fill this Clear Tiny Treat box with a small gift or some treats...Hershey Kisses would be perfect here.  Isn't this sentiment so cute?  It was fun making the mistletoe with the Pretty Pines Thinlits.

You can make several of these to keep on hand during the holiday season.  These would even be cute to carry in your bag to hand to cashiers, crossing guards, bus drivers...you get the idea.  Spread love and joy this season!
