Santa and Elf Candy Tubes

Christmas Candy Tubes

I love making packaging at this time of the year and nothing could be easier than creating Christmas gifts for the kids.  I have made these super easy Santa and Elf Candy Tubes filled with Jelly Beans.

I created a belly band out of black cardstock and cut a buckle using my Pazzles Inspiration (99.00 Dollar Special) cutting machine with glittered vinyl.  They were secured around the Candy Tube using double sided tape.

Santa Candy Tube Gift Idea

I added two white buttons on each of the Candy Tubes using my electronic cutter with white cardstock.  I then secured  my SRM Christmas Sticker sentiments to the top of the tubes using Trendy Twine in coordinating colours.

Elf Candy Tube gift idea

I know the kids are going to love these and they are cheap to make as the tubes only stand 2.5" high.  With the aid of my Pazzles Inspiration cutting machine I can cut multiples of the buttons, belly band and buckle in no time at all, so are just perfect for a quick, last minute project. 

Supplies :-

Candy Tubes and Tag sentiments - SRM Stickers
Twine - Trendy Twine
Double sided tape - Stix 2
Glittered Vinyl - Hobbycraft
White and Black cardstock - American Crafts

Gingerbread Gift Bags

Resized gift bags for Christmas gifts

It is true to say that I love making gift packaging projects.  Since, receiving my Inspiration Vue (99.00 Dollar Special) electronic cutter, I have loved the ability to create more and more Print and Cut projects using graphics and paper pieced projects.

Print and Cut Pazzles

For my Gingerbread Gift Bags, I altered a cereal box cutting file found in the Pazzles Craft Library and created a couple of gift bags.  The gift bag on the left uses a MK - Gingerbread Girl cutting file which I Print and Cut.  The gift bag on the right uses the same cutting file which I have resized.  I have made a couple of outlines for the thin border and created a Gingerbread Girl aperture to reveal a sneak peek of the Gingerbread biscuits inside.

"Dear Santa" decorated paper bag

Graphic 45, SRM stickers

A few days ago I posted my first decorated brown paper bag and was so surprised at how incredibly easy it was to create, so I have made another one!  

I have cut up a panel from the Graphic 45 - Twas the Night Before Christmas, paper collection and inked around the edges using a red ink pad.  I adhered my SRM Stickers "Dear Santa" to the bottom of the brown bag.

I punched out some snowflakes out of coordinated papers from the collection and added a self adhesive pearl to the centre.

Finally, I added a red stitched ribbon and button, then tied it together using some Kraft twine.

Yes, it's that simple.

Print and Cut your own Christmas Labels

Christmas stickers

Here are my Christmas Labels created for my latest Pazzles Design Team project over on the Pazzles Blog.  I decided to use ordinary brown parcel wrapping paper available from the Post Office or Office Supplier........nothing fancy or expensive.  I then wrapped up my presents using pretty ribbons and embellishments.

Christmas Stickers - Inspiration Vue electronic cutting machine

Now, the fun part.......I arranged an assortment of cutting files onto my visual cutting mat and made an outline of each design.  I then Print and Cut my label sheet using my 
Pazzles Inspiration Vue (99.00 Dollar Special) which cut them out perfectly! 

Decorate your presents using labels and your Inspiration Vue

Once, the presents were wrapped, all I needed to do was to weed my sticker paper and I was left with a sheet of Christmas labels ready to decorate my presents.

Miss Kate Cuttables - Print and Cut

For the label below, I added a decorative pearl to the centre.

Gift Wrapping - Print and Cut

The labels are so pretty combined with the brown wrapping paper and ribbons, that I think I may need to make some labels for gifts throughout the year!

Gift Wrapping using your electronic cutting machine

I was so impressed with the Print and Cut accuracy
of my Pazzles Inspiration Vue (99.00 Dollar Special).

Printed gift tags

Please make sure you head over to the Pazzles Craft Room, to read my FULL blog post and see details of specific cutting files used for this project.

Have fun creating your own Christmas Labels, which is way more fun
that buying labels in the shops!

Decorated Kraft Paper Bags

How to simply decorate paper bags

I recently purchased some Kraft paper bags and Christmas stickers from SRM stickers and thought I would see how quickly I could pretty them up!

I cut out a panel from a sheet of Kaisercraft - North Pole patterned papers and adhered to the front of my paper bag.  I then took a fine liner and doodled around the edges around the panel. 

Embellishments for the top of my paper bag

I made a pretty bow with some embellishments that coordinated with the papers to add to the top of the bag.

SRM stickers and Kraft Bags

 I  took part of a sticker that I cut down, to adhere at an angle on 2 corners of my printed panel.

Yes, it's that easy!

Now, I am off to decorate some more paper bags using some panels from my patterned papers.

Supplies :-

North Pole collection - Kaisercraft
Ribbon, pearl and snowflake embellishments - The Mulberry Bush
