  • So speaking of stuffing your stocking…here is my first project!

    Santa was here

    That was always my first sign as a child that Santa had visited our house! I’d see my stocking on our staircased filled to overflowing. I always loved the stocking stuffers the most as a kid. Still do.

    I have taken the NEW! The Stockings Were Hung Cut File, and made it into a three dimensional stocking from cardstock, that you can actually stuff!

    You may want to try using this template with actual fabric of felt!

     I chose to use the”old” Secret Santa © 32 Images to adorn my stocking. It was perfect! 

    To make this go from a simple cut file, which is perfect for dressing up any mantle, tree, card, or gift, to a three dimensional stocking. I simply printed two sheet of the “old” Timeless Tradition © polkadot patterned paper, then cut it out using the NEW! The Stocking Were Hung Cut File. The decorative pieces were cut from a cherry cardstock, and were sponged with a distressing ink. 

    This is the back

    I ALWAYS say to make sure your project is complete and details in all angles! This is no different.

    Be sure you mirror the template before cutting the pattern, so that the patterned sides of the paper fit together, as you can see here.

    Then use a really good adhesive-I actually used ZipDry, to adhere all around the edges-leaving the top open.

    I was actually able to stuff this with a bunch of fun stuff. In here I have lip balm, travel size hand sanitizer, lotion and some cocoa packets! 

    What a fun and inexpensive project!

    Even the kids can do it.

     Now using the same idea that we used for the  NEW! The Stocking Were Hung Cut File, I used for the NEW! Frost Bitten Cut File!

    Frost Bitten

    This is a super cute cut file that can be the perfect pennant, hung on a door, on a tree, placed atop a gift, or like here, made into a fun three dimensional pocket to hold something to warm the heart.

    You can use this cut file with cardstock, fabric, or felt! Imagine the possibilities.

    I used the holly berry from the Frost Bitten Cut File to adorn my mitten. I love how the holly leaf turned out. It alone can be used on a variety of other projects.

    I stuffed in some tea packets, to help that someone special keep warn. This is a gift that costs pennies,takes only minutes to make, but has an amazing impact!
