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!

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):

Cuddle up with a cuppa cocoa + Paper Sweeties!

I couldn't let the Fall Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop come and go without creating a little something sweet to share!

We just received our brand new Merry and Bright holiday patterned paper pads on Wednesday and I've been so excited to find some time to play with them!

I whipped up this adorable little cardstock box and then had fun decorating it with papers, stamped images and dies from our shop!

The mini cups are filled inside with two little packets of hot cocoa and marshmallows - yummy!

Wouldn't this be such a sweet gift to give this fall, holiday season and throughout the winter months too?

Sweetest holiday season – TKJ #149

This week The Kraft Journal #149 brings us a sketch challenge ... I LOVE sketch challenges!!

sketch149

I decided to create a {sweet treat} gift idea using stamped sentiments on a oval die cut and tag for the oval and square elements of the sketch!  I began with a Kraft CD Envelope which I covered with patterned papers.  Next I cut a white paper doilie in half and adhered half of an Oval Brown Kraft Label onto it before adhering the doilie to the base of the CD Envelope.

Debbie TKJ #149 (3)

Next I created a pretty paper ruffle using a Vintage Dictionary Page and then tied a length of White Twill Tape around the center of the CD Envelope.  Red Baker's Twine was wrapped around the Twill Tape and two Rusty Jingle Bells were tied on.  A fluffy Red & White Chenille Candy Cane was slipped under the Baker's Twine and secured with hot glue.

Debbie TKJ #149 (2)

I stamped the sentiments onto Buff Ivory Cardstock and a Scalloped Grungy Prim Tag.  The oval sentiment was die cut and adhered directly to the base of the CD Envelope.  The Grungy Prim Tag was attached to the Candy Cane with a Memo Pin and then a tiny, red button was added.

A white paper doilie was wrapped around an envelope of Peppermint Hot Chocolate and tied on with Red Baker's Twine.  Marshmallows were added to a clear cellophane sleeve and the treats were slipped inside the CD Envelope.  I love giving party favors to guests who visit my house all year round ... I'm hosting a holiday progressive party for my dinner club early in December and each couple will go home with one of these {sweet treats}!

Please be sure to visit The Kraft Journal challenge blog to be inspired by the rest of the teamies projects for this week's sketch challenge, and then I hope you'll have time to play along for your chance to win an awesome prize from The Kraft Outlet Shop!
