Hershey Santa Clause

Good morning Stampers!

We have just come home from a little work/mini vacation from Kona. Just completed our first holiday craft fair for the season. Since we needed to travel a bit for this two day event, we decided to make it a mini vacation too. We all enjoyed our time there. Hopefully we will be able to make this our annual getaway.

It's cyber Monday and I thought that I would give you a sweet treat--Santa Hershey Bar Holder.  This was a hit at the craft fair. Sold out on these candy bars really fast. This is a cute gift giving idea-stocking stuffer, office grab bag gift or maybe a gift for your favorite teacher. Love this idea and found it on Kerry's blog. I altered her idea a bit and I thought it came out just as sweet.

Petite Curly Label #129405

Sticky Strip #104294
Multipurpose Liquid Glue #110755
Stampin Dimensionals #104430

Simply Scored Scoring Tool #122334
Crimper (Optional)

1.   Cut Real Red Card Stock 6" x 6".
2.   Score @ 1/2" and 3 1/4".
3.   Place sticky strip on 1/2" edge of Real Red Card Stock.
4.   Fold and seal candy holder
5.   Cut Whisper White at 6" x 2 1/4".
6.   Punch both (long sides) with Scallop Border Punch.
7.   Cut Santa's Belt in Basic Black at 6 1/4" x 3/4"
8.   Wrap belt around candy holder and adhere.
9.   Punch Belt Buckle with the Artisian Punch in Daffodil Delight and adhere.
10. Punch inner Belt Buckle with Petite Curly Label Punch in Basic Black and adhere.
11. Punch Buttons with 1/2" Circle Punch.
12.Optional - Crimp bottom of Santa using your crimper.

Hope you enjoyed this gift giving idea. Stay tuned for more holiday gift giving ideas!

September's 3x3 Thank You Note Cards

Good morning Stampers!

We are getting the day going early today---our family is making a traditional Hawaiian Dish called Lau Lau (Seasoned Pork and Beef wrapped in Taro leaf and steamed to perfection).  We are helping my daughter cover her cost of tuition in order for her to attend Nursing Assistant Training School next month. We are so grateful for the many friends and family members who have graciously pitched in to help with our fundraiser. She had tried for grants and scholarship to help cover the cost and unfortunately, even as a single mother of two who works part time, she was unsuccessful in getting any type of assistance. Instead of giving up hope, we are working with her to help cover the cost. I am sharing with you my 3X3 Thank You note cards that we will be handing out along with our Lau Lau orders.

Pumpkin Treat Box Tutorial

Welcome Back Crafting Friends!

I've finally finished working on the tutorial for this cute little treat box which features the Scallop Circle Die and Autumn Harvest Die from Stampin' Up!

Click HERE for the list of supplies needed to create the Pumpkin Treat Holder.
Start by creating the box. You will need a piece of Pumpkin Pie  card stock measuring 5 1/2" x 5"

With the 5" edge placed at the top of the score board, score at 2" and at 3". Rotate the card stock so that 5 1/2" edge is now at the top of the scoreboard and score at 1" and 4 1/2".

Using paper snips, cut from the edge of the card stock to the score line.

Turn the card stock over and place sticky strip on the flaps of the card stock as shown in the above photo (I prefer using Sticky Strip because of it's stronger bonding factor).

Assemble your box and adhere the flaps.

Using the Big Shot, cut two Scallop Circles using Stampin' Up!'s Scallop Circle BigZ die.

Emboss each scallop circle using your favorite embossing folder or with the Beautiful Baroque embossing folder from Stampin' Up!

Place the scallop circle on your score board so that the left side of the circle rests against the left edge of the score board. Score and crease the Scallop Circle at 3 1/2". Do this to both Scallop Circles.

Place Sticky Strip on the flap of each circle as shown above.

Adhere the flap of the circle to the bottom of the box. Do this to both sides of your box. Add a little bit of sticky strip to the top edge of your box to adhere your scallop circle.

Your Scallop Circle Treat Holder should now look like this,.

Using your Big Shot, Cut three leaves using Stampin' Up!'s Autumn Harvest BigZ die. After cutting, Emboss the leaves with Stampin' Up!'s Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.

Create your handle for your treat holder using ribbon. In this example, I am using a piece of Old Olive Satin Ribbon. Adhere one side of the ribbon to the inside of each scallop circle. I like using Stampin' Up!'s glue dots for the adhesive.

Adhere your leaves to the front of your treat holder using glue dots.

Embellish with Naturals Designer Buttons and Linen Thread and there you have it!

Hope you all enjoyed this tutorial. Need supplies? Visit my online store HERE. Don't forget this month's Hostess Code 4QGNZHG3 to enter into a drawing for $50 of Stampin' Up! Hostess Benefit from me (Should your product order exceed $150, you will automatically receive Hostess Benefits and need not enter into the drawing)

Enjoy your weekend!!!
