Do you have a minute . . .

I've got another quick project for you 

using leftovers from your

Graphic 45 Card Kit - Vol 12 - 2021

IMG_7358

Create a pouch to hold

candy for a Christmas stocking, 

a gift certificate,

or a small gift when meeting friends for lunch.

Here's what I used:

Leftovers from the Graphic 45 Card Kit Vol 12 - 2021

Nutcracker Sweet 8x8 paper pad leftovers

Pouch Template from the inside cover of the paper pad

Leftover tag

Ribbon from my stash

(sorry, candy not included)

Mouse pad or similar

bone folder

small saucer

scoreboard

Cut out the pouch template and then trace around the template

on a piece of leftover Nutcracker Sweet paper.

Using your score board,

score the straight lines as indicated on the template.

For the rounded lines shown on the template,

line up a small saucer on top of a mouse pad

& score around the saucer.

Carefully fold on the rounded scored lines,

adhere the bottom and side together with glue or tape.

Fill with candy.

You may choose to leave the top open,

spilling the candy out onto each place setting

on your holiday table.

Or close up the pouch and tuck into

a Christmas stocking.

Happy Graphic 45 crafting!


Do you have a minute . . .

If you do, you can make a few Christmas gift tags using leftovers from your

Nothing fancy here, these tags will take just a few minutes to create

and look adorable on your packages.

Adding a bit of glitz goes a long way.

Here's what I used:

Staples – Artist Trading Tags, Kraft: 4500847

Staples – Artist Trading Tags, Ivory: 4500846

Large tag, ATC tag and Flowers Dies – SKU: 4501687

Did you know these Graphic 45 tag dies

are just a tad bit smaller than the actual tags,

allowing for a border all around the tag including the grommet hole.

Genius! And a must have for crafters.
