Cardz TV Go-to Galz Challenge #40 "Christmas Treat"

Hello my crafty friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  It's time for a Cardz TV Go-to Galz Challenge.  Today's challenge is to make a treat holder for Christmas giving.  I had these little gum packs in my cupboard that I was going to decorate for Halloween but had forgotten them.  So I decided to decorate them.
The sentiments are from the Cardz TV Stamps Tiny Tidings.  This set is fun!  The papers are from Doodlebug and one is from Recollections.  I used the Hexagon, small oval, large oval, and Artisan punch from Stampin' Up.  I cut a piece that was 1 15/16 x 4 3/4.   With the 4 3/4 inch side at the top of the score board, I scored it at 1 inch, 1 3/8 inch, 3, 3 3/8.  These are very low cost and make great treats for a quick gift for cashiers at stores or at the bank, and are very quick to make.

Now it's your turn!  Just make a Christmas treat holder and head on over to Mary's Blog and enter your project.  You have until noon EST on December 12 to enter.  Mary will be giving away a set of her fabulous stamp sets to the winner.  I hope you stop by the other ladies' blogs on the Design Team for more inspiration.  I will have more treat holders coming this week so check back.

Thanks for stopping by, and I would really love to hear from you.  If you are new to my blog I hope you become a follower.  I would love to have you.  Have a great weekend!

Lots of Hugs,

Num Num's

Hello my crafty friends!  My friend and I were making some treat holders recently.  I just love this little box because it's perfect to give to someone at the bank or grocery store.  It holds three Hershey Nuggets.  I wrapped them with papers from Stampin Up and Recollections.  The Ho Ho Ho and Num Num sentiments are from a Stampin Up set called Oh Goodies.  The May your holidays be SWEET! and Friends are the best presents are from the Cardz TV Stamps set "Tiny Tidings."  I used the Modern Label punch, Word Window punch, large and small oval punches from Stampin Up.  The little ornament and star were punched from a trio pack from Stampin Up.

I can't believe how time is just flying!  Thanksgiving is next week, and Christmas will be here before you know it!  Now I must get back to making treat holders for my daughter's class for Thanksgiving!  Have a great day!

Lots of Hugs,
(The Queen)

Hello my crafty friends!  If you are looking for my Cardz TV Go-to Galz "Thankful" challenge card CLICK HERE.  I almost forgot about these little guys until a friend of mine posted something similar on Facebook. (Thanks Shelly) I had to go find them and take some pictures.  My friend showed me these guys last year but I never had time to make them.  So here are a couple of them.  The sentiments are from Cardz TV Stamps set "Snow Day."  There are some really cute stamps on this set!  I used felt that I cut into strips and tied it around the instead of ribbon and snipped the ends.   If you want to make some, here's the tutorial she found.
Now I'm off to make a bunch more!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!
