Glittery Goodness!

Glittery Goodness!

The Christmas Holidays are always filled with yummy goodies so why not share this glittery goodness with your friends and family when they come to visit.  Place them on a nightstand or on their pillows right before retiring for the evening.  These little glittery boxes hold four Hershey nuggets wrapped with a Merry message stamped using the new “Its a Wrap Holidays” stamp set.  The messages from this stamp set are stamped on an Avery 8160 label.  However, before you wrap your nugget, make a belly band around your nugget with cardstock, then wrap with your stamped label.  The Hershey Chocolates Co.  has advised against wrapping the chocolates directly with the label as the adhesive on the labels can be absorbed into the chocolate through the wrapper and distort the taste of the chocolate. So be sure to wrap them first with cardstock so they remain food safe please!
 
Since I had a bit of a problem photographing this little box because of all its glittery goodness, I ended up having to take it outside so there wasn’t so much glare, but then ended up with a bit of a shadow on the side.  I suggest you click on the photo to get a closer look at all the details and those cute little birds on the branch.  I used the Bigz XL Matchbox die for the box and the Frostwood Lodge Designer Series Paper covers the top and bottom and then wrapped with Cherry Cobbler Scallop Dots Ribbon.  Ahhh – there’s that new Silver Glimmer paper again. Doesn’t it just sparkle!
 
The birds on the limb are stamped with the new Christmas Lodge stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink.  I added extra sparkle to the branch with the new Dazzling Details irredescent glitter glue, a rhinestone in the flower, and a few of the new Mini Jingle Bells on a Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine bow.  Simply delectable!

Christmas Candy Quickies!

Here are two quick candy ideas to put at a Christmas place setting or use as  stocking stuffers for the kiddies!  The first is a peppermint wonderland with peppermint candy balls which are placed inside Stampin’ Up!’s medium cellophane bags.

Peppermint Swirls

The cello bags are just right for treats, favors or gifts. You can twist tie the top like I did on this bag and add a tag or handcraft your own topper for extra creativity.  These are available for $4.95 for 50 bags. Sweet deal!

Supplies:  Stamp Set: Button, Button and Teeny Tiny Wishes; Cardstock:  Whisper White, Real Red and Pear Pizzazz; Ink:  Real Red; Accessories:  Large Cellophane Bags, Paper Piercing Tool, Scallop Circle Punch, Circle Punches:  1-3/8″, 1-1/4″ and 1″, Oval Punch: 3/4″x 15/16″, Linen Thread, Bold Brights Glimmer Brad and of course Peppermint Candy.

The second idea makes a great stocking stuffer especially for boys or as a little something to give out to the kids at school. 

Test Tube Christmas

The test tubes and corks can be found at www.lcmlab.com for about 50 cents each. Please e-mail me privately if you would like the sizes of the tubes and corks I used here.  I filled them with mini snow cap candy, but red, white and green m&m’s or gum balls would also work.  I added little hand-stamped tags with ribbon and tinsel trim to the tops.  The tinsel trim is available in the Holiday Mini Catalog in Clear and Silver -10 yards for $7.95.

Supplies:  Stamp Set:  Punch Pals; Cardstock: Whisper White; Ink: Real Red and Black Stazon; Markers:  Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, and Real Red; Accessories:  XL Tag Punch, Modern Label Punch, 5/8″ Satin Real Red Ribbon, 5/8″ Organza Whisper White Ribbon, Clear Tinsel Trim, Basic Rhinestones, Test Tubes and Mini Snow Cap Candy.
