And I also created a coordinating 3-D house using a paper mache box from the craft store and all of these yummy goodies ...

How CUTE is Mrs. Claus with her delicious candy cane!

And, of course, Santa is popping out of the chimney 🙂

I covered the box with patterned papers and embellished with stickers ...

... added vellum to the windows so I could put a flame free candle inside to light this sweet house up at night!

And the addition of some chunky glitter for 'snow' finishes this darling cottage off!

How cute would an entire village of these little houses be all decorated differently with coordinating papers?  Note to self: next year!

And one final project ... you'll remember the Halloween theme frame I created with Doodlebug stickers -- well, I did the exact same thing with Christmas theme stickers to change for the current season!

For today's project share, I have used our FUN Treat Box die and turned it into a Santa belly!

His beard was created using our Scallop Circle die and then I added some chunky glitter.  I punched 3 circles and cut a strip from black cardstock to create the buttons and belt.  The buckle was made using an old punch from my stash.

I added a fun nosegay using one of our chenille candy canes and a tag which I stamped using a sentiment from our Merry set and then embossed it with red glitter embossing powder!

Today, I'm sharing some more fun gift ideas for the holidays and winter season ... I used hot cocoa, but these could very easily be created with coffee or tea as well!

I cut 2 pieces of pink cardstock for the front and back of the pocket and hot glued them together around the edges.  I decorated the front of the pocket with cute patterned papers & a sticker from Doodlebug (the Doodlebug goodies used on this project are no longer available in our shop, but I included links to similar papers and stickers that we have available) and then embellished the pocket and spoon using stamps and dies from Paper Sweeties!

Recreate using these products from our shop:

For today's second project, I created another sweet gift basket filled with a peppermint hot cocoa K-cup - yummy!

These little baskets are so much fun to make ... and give!

I just love this winter theme set created with our adorable Mr. Snowman!!!

25 Days of Christmas with Paper Sweeties: 2018!

We're sharing holiday inspiration projects for 25 days here at Paper Sweeties from December 1st through the 25th!  We began yesterday by sharing some fun ideas to help you plan your life in style with Paper Sweeties.  Click here to check out what our talented design teamies created to help spark your creativity!

It's my turn today to share a little something sweet ...

... so, I created a few gifts that will be as much fun to make as they are to give!

First up is another treat basket that I filled with a gingerbread flavored K-cup of coffee!  I decorated the outside of the basket with our sweet little gingerbread girlie!

Then I created a gingerbread couple made out of felt.  I button stitched around the outside of the die cuts and then embellished them both with little bits and bobs of sweet treasures!

These little felt gingers would look cute on top of packages, adorning a tree, tied to gifts or tucked inside a holiday card!  They are super easy peesy to make and so FUN to give!  Recreate using these products from the Paper Sweeties shop:

I created this set using the Basket Sweet Cuts die as well (link for set in gallery above):

Paper Sweeties | Fall & Winter 2018 Coffee Hop!

Welcome crafty friends and fellow coffee lovers!   I'm super excited to share a sweet holiday project I recently created in honor of this years Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop event!

I created this adorable treat basket using a mixture of products available at Paper Sweeties ...

... and filled my treat basket with a Peppermint flavored Hot Cocoa K-cup!

I created a coordinating card to go along with my treat!

I used our newest sentiment stamp set called Merry - LOVE!!!

What a 'sweet' set!  You can filled the treat basket with K-cups, tea bags, candy, gift cards, money, tea cookies, jewelry, etc.  These would make adorable teacher appreciation gifts or party favors!  How about making up a bunch of them for the holidays and then giving them to friends and family who visit you for the holidays!  They are so much fun to make ... and even more fun to give!

We've put together a KIT to make this fun gift set ... everything included to make the treat box and card except for the stamp set - sold separately (links to products in gallery below).

If you already own our sweet Basket Sweet Cuts die, we have a downloadable template (link in gallery below) to create the middle portion of the treat box so you can fill your sweet treat with goodies!

Click here ---> to see our all in one Treat Box Sweet Cuts die that will make a complete box that you can fill with treats (no middle portion needed)!

Recreate using these items from Paper Sweeties:

25 Days of Christmas Tags with Paper Sweeties: 2018!

Hello crafty friends!  I'm super excited to be sharing a couple tags here on my blog today that I created especially for Tracey McNeely's annual 25 Days of Christmas Tags Blog Hop!

I've been a busy bee for weeks creating tons of handmade decorations to adorn a 4 1/5' holiday tree that will be donated to The Festival of Trees annual holiday auction in Pinehurst, NC!  I was contacted this past summer and asked to sponsor a tree on behalf of our B&B, The Carriage House, and of course I said 'YES'!

Under the tree I have several kraft boxes tied up with black & white buffalo plaid ribbon and adorned with some handmade, farmhouse tags using goodies from Paper Sweeties!  This is also a sneak peek of a brand new holiday sentiment set releasing in our shop on the 15th!  I stamped the sentiments using Versamark ink and then embossed with white powder -- LOVE!

Here is a second tag created using another sentiment from this amazing set and a sweet little ornament!

And a third tag created with yet another sentiment and this cozy mitten, die cut from red and white felt!

You can recreate these tags using these items from the Paper Sweeties shop:
