Stocking Stuffers and Quick Christmas Gift Ideas
Put your paper crafting skills and materials to good use making some of your holiday gifts. Here are some ideas:
Make a quick stocking from 2 sheets of double sided paper and 2 yards of ribbon. Add a few jingle bells and a tag and you’ve got the perfect little present for friends and family. Stuff your stocking with a gift card, book mark, Crystal Pencil, clear stamp set, flat embellishments like crystals or pearls and lots of other fun things. Stop in and buy paper and ribbon and I will give you the pattern. Be aware that making these stockings can be very addictive!
Our acrylic birds and Christmas bulbs are a real hit! Simply stamp them with Stazon ink (we used white) and add some bling or glitter and you’ve got a really cute (and fast) home décor item, Christmas tree ornament, package tag, or holiday gift or decoration. The birds are on special for $6 per set and the light bulbs are $1 each. Limited supplies so get yours today!
You cannot appreciate the sparkle of these chic black pencils until you see how the Swarovski crystals sparkle in the light. These pencils are black all the way through and are all over the media – they have been featured in “O” and “Lucky” Magazines and are offered on some of the most upscale gift web sites. But the best news is that the pencils are $7.00 on many of those sites, but only $2.99 at The Stamp Act. Customers are buying 6 and 7 pencils at a time! They make a perfect gift for lots of people – your accountant, an architect, college students, business colleagues as well as friends and family! We’ve already sold over 100 and I just got more in stock – come on in and buy several because they will make a very memorable gift!
Give something sweet to friends and colleagues this holiday season with a darling little nugget box. This one is made from one sheet of double sided decorative paper and the cutest little honey bear from The Cat’s Pajamas.
Make the box from decorative paper then dress it up with a poinsettia made from the Spellbinders Poinsettia die. It’s the perfect size for a few cookies or candies or a small gift.
Quick Christmas Cards
Make eight very special Christmas cards fast using two sets of holiday stickers from Penny Black. Just add some decorative paper and a little glitter glue and you’re done. Here are the cards I made for a little inspiration.
The cards above are made from Penny Black's "Joy to the World" Stickers
The cards above are made from Penny Black's "Snowflakes Falling" stickers
Class This Saturday
This Saturday afternoon I will be teaching a class that I took from Tim Holtz at the recent trade show I attended. It's all about using Memory frames, glass and capsules and we will make two pins. I know these aren't the best photos; trust me there is a lot of detail in each of these little capsules. Please plan to join us and learn how to make these. They will make wonderfully unique holiday gifts.
