Thank You card for ordering with me! I appreciate your business!
For today’s project you will have to forgive me for using products that are retired through Stampin’ Up! but, I am busy creating for an upcoming craft show so, I am using up some great papers in my collection! The Stocking Die was offered last year through Stampin’ Up!. You can create your own template if you do not have this die.
I used designer paper for the front, Very Vanilla cardstock for the backs (which I just used my liquid glue to attach), and a very sparkly piece of the Silver Glimmer Paper for the tops of all of the stockings.
Sponging a bit of Soft Suede ink around all of my bits and pieces really helps to make it “pop”. I used some brown felt ribbon for my hanger. Using a crop-a-dial I punched a hole through the ribbon and the top of the stocking and used a brad to attach to the stocking. I also hot glued retired felt pieces over the brads for adding decoration.
I hope that you enjoyed today’s project and you are beginning to think of ways to create your own cute packages this holiday season! Let me know if I can help you!
I have decided to show you a nice solution for packaging those gift cards this coming season or change up the stamps and you can use this idea year round!

I recently made this little gift card holder for a friend of my daughter’s. Much cuter than the plain ‘ole envelope that the “big box” stores give you for free. I think that this makes a much better presentation! If you click the picture you can see that I have added glitter and a bit of paper piercing for added interest. Oh, I made my own envelope also. The diagonal score plate worked perfectly for this and it was so quick and easy!! 🙂
