Ink Share Share : November Blog Hop

Welcome back to our Ink, Stamp & Share Blog hop, joining myself here in Norfolk, UK and other fellow Demonstrator colleagues around the Globe.

For todays share, we are all creating Christmas Gift Packaging and I am sharing a co-ordinating set using the Under The Mistletoe Designer Series Paper #146768.
Firstly, I created another little box within a bag I made recently here.

The tag is a 1-3/4" circle punch #119850 in Whisper White card #106550.  Elements from Mistletoe Season stamp set #146768 were stamped in Real Red ink  pad #147084 and Garden Green ink pad #147089.  Hole was punched with 1/8" Handheld Circle punch #134365 and attached using Real Red 3/8" Mixed Satin Ribbon #147894.
My next project has been a firm favourite with my customers for several years, teaching all my November monthly clubs to create for their small Christmas  presents or table place setting gifts.  I love seeing the amazement on everyone's face when they finally complete !
Every year I have new customers wanting to make crackers and this year was no exception.  
  1. Having previously cut my Designer Series Paper down to 6" squares (approximately 15cm), I took one piece and trimmed one edge to 11cm.
  2. With shortest edge at the top, score at 2.5cm, 5cm, 7.5cm and 10cm.
  3. With long edge at the top, score at 2.5cm, 3.5cm and 4.5cm from each end.  
  4. Crease along each of these score lines using a Bone Folder #102300.
  5. Insert in Envelope Punch Board #133774 on the 3.5cm mark, where you have a score line already.  Punch at 3.5cm on each of the folded edges.  Repeat the other end of the cracker.
  6. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue #110755 along the narrow edge to create a tube.
  7. Tie one end of cracker with your choice of ribbon, insert contents and tie the other end with ribbon.
I hope you have enjoyed my projects today and perhaps create some of your own.
