Holiday Idea #1

Pam and I have both been super busy lately and have made an "executive decision" about December. As we know you are all busy as well, we are going to just post some great quick and simple holiday 3D ideas over the next couple of weeks every few days. You are more than welcome to make a sample of the idea and link back into the comments section or just take the idea and run with it!

For our first idea, I decided to show something that I'd done at a local demo meeting as well as I've used recently at some workshops. This is a great way to dress up some simple treats for any occasion!

All I did here was take a few nuggets (but you can use any candy) and put them into a cello bag with a bit of filler. Then I took a 1" x 12" strip of textured cardstock, folded it over and added a brad. I then used punches and various stamps to make a top.

These would be great for a classroom or on the table for Christmas dinner filled with holiday candy!

Have a great day,

Those are adorable!! I think they would make great little place cards for a holiday dinner, maybe with some dinner mints in them. Thanks for the inspiration!

Looking forward to January challenges!
