12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS TREATS: Festive Christmas Tree Bottle Gift Tag...

Yesterday, I shared my Peace on Earth Pecan Bag with you.  It is one of the favors for my Christmas Game Night.  Today I will share another simple favor I made for my game night.  This one is a Christmas Hanger Tag for my favorite bread dipping oil from Bravo! Cucina.  So simple, but this tag and the luscious Cherry Cobbler Sheer Linen Ribbon make for a nice presentation. 


For the hanger tag, I cut a piece of Under the Tree Specialty DSP at 2" x 4-5/8".  I scored it at 1-3/4" for the fold line.  Then I punched a 1-1/4" Circle in the center of the small section and used the Corner punch on the 2 end corners.  Be sure to check the diameter of your bottle for the best fit.  For the banner end, I traced one of the Under the Tree Tag a Bag Accessory Kit tags on the back of the paper and then cut the banner end.


I am really beginning to love the Photopolymer stamps!  One of my favorite things to do with them is to curve the sentiments!  For this one, I placed it on the block in a wave pattern that mimicked the Bitty Banners wave framelit.  I placed the stamp on the block and then checked by placing the framelit over it before stamping the image and cutting with the framelit.

Sorry about the heavy shadows on the photo.  I didn't realize it until I was editing them.

12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS TREATS: Peace on Earth Pecan Cafe Bag...

I am hosting a Christmas Game Night later this month.  I try to do this every year - I love a good game night!  Normally we exchange gifts, but one of our friends decided to end the tradition.  Since it's Christmas time, I couldn't completely give up on sharing with my friends!  So I decided to make some favors for my guests to take home.  The first one is this cute Peace on Earth Cafe Bag filled with Cinnamon Sugar Glazed Pecans (recipe at the end of the post).


Since I had a lot of pecans to make, I wanted to make a quick and easy treat bag for them.  I decided to use one of the samples in the Holiday Catalog that had a natural feel.   I thought it went perfectly with the pecan treat, but I just needed to tweak it a bit.  With the new foam style ink pads, you can usually emboss with them if you move quickly (if your ink pad is dry, just add some more ink).  So I heat embossed the stamp image with Iridescent Ice and added Gold Glitz Dazzling Details to layer on the *sparkle*!

Stamping over the creases on the bag can be a bit spotty.  Just go ahead and emboss the image as stamped.  Then go back and draw in the skipped portions with a brush marker and IMMEDIATELY sprinkle with the embossing powder as soon as you complete a section.  It worked perfectly!

PEACE ON EARTH PECAN CAFE BAG SUPPLIES:
  • Stamp Sets – Nature's Peace (W#135116 $24.95, C#135119 $17.95)
  • Ink – Early Espresso
  • Ribbon – Natural & Old Olive Two-Tone Trim (#135837, $4.95)
  • Accessories – Petite Cafe Bags (#135826, $5.95), Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder (#101930, $4.95), Gold Glitz Dazzling Details (#133755, $2.50)
  • Tools – Heat Tool

CINNAMON SUGAR GLAZED PECANS RECIPE
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 lbs. pecans
  • 2 C sugar
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 TBS cinnamon
1.  Whip the egg whites to a froth in a mixing bowl large enough to hold the pecans.  Add the pecans to the egg whites and toss until well coated.

2.  In second bowl, mix the salt, cinnamon and sugar together.  Slowly pour the mixture over the pecans and mix until the pecans are evenly coated with the sugar mixture.

3.  Place pecans on a lightly buttered (or use a silicone mat) jelly roll pan at 300 degrees for 30-45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes (try to separate nuts when stirring).  Be sure not to overcook.  When out of the oven, separate the nuts as best as you can and allow to cool.  These make great gifts and are SOOOOO good!  Enjoy!!!

For the Takeout Box itself, I decided to *Put on the Glitz*!  I used the Metallic Gold Encore pad and pressed it directly all over the outside of the box before assembling.  Then I applied Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder and embossed it.  Presto!!!  A golden, glitzy box perfect for Christmas!  And so easy!

12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS TREATS: Olaf the Snowman Curvy Box...

Time for my Christmas Bunco, so I needed to come up with some Christmas treats for the ladies!  I went with the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlit.  I just love that die - so many fabulous options come to mind!  For this project, I decided to make this little snowman box and I filled him with Lindt Snowman Truffles.  My daughter says his face looks like Olaf from Frozen, so I'll go with it!  LOL  I went with a simple punch art design since I had to make 12 of these.  Later this week, I will share another Curvy Keepsake Box!


The snowman's eyes are made with the 1/2" Circle Punch and the large and medium circles on the Owl Builder Punch.  The mouth is also the medium circles on the Owl Builder Punch.  The nose is the wing from the Bird Builder punch, trimmed down just a bit and then outlined with the Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker.  The little tag die is one of three that comes with the Curvy Keepsake Box Framelits.  I had to emboss it with Iridescent Ice (Dazzling Diamond Dust technique) for a little sparkle!

  • Stamp Sets – Endless Wishes (P#136829 $15.95)
  • Card Stock – Whisper White, Basic Black, Tangerine Tango
