This was a fun project that I did yesterday morning and it only took me a couple hours! Ok, I will confess, I used a Silouette cut file to cut everything out, then I just had fun embellishing it! The file I used is called 3D Elf Foot Stocking Bag and I increased the size of it by 165%. I filled it with chocolate and took it to one of my aunts. I am sure she will enjoy it! This would make a great gift for a neighbor or teacher if you need just a little something to say I am thinking about you or I appreciate you.
I made the poinsettias using a Sizzix poisettia die and used gold Stickles for the centers. I diecut some holly leaves and pine boughs to use under the poinsettias and made a pinecone, all with dies. I love the giant jingle bells, they are from Darice.
I fussy cut the nutcracker from Nutcracker Sweet to embellish the back.
The two sides are essentially the same except that I only had 3 bells, so on this side I added a couple of chipboard pieces to the bell cluster.
Thanks for stopping by my blog, I do appreciate it so much! Happy Holidays to you, hope they are filled with love, family and laughter!
