Anyway, this was a quickie that I replicated from the Scallop Envelope Big Shot class we had a while back. One of my good friends, Joanne, had shown me the little Ghiradelli Peppermint Bark candies - made only for the holiday season - in a scallop envelope she made. So, I thought what a nice "Little" something to give to a few people at work. So I'm trying to whip out a few to bring to work this week. It's made with the Scallop Envelope die for the Big Shot, using just Real Red Cardstock. Then I stamped the saying from the set, To You and Yours, and embossed it in gold. I layered that on Whisper White and a Brushed Gold Scalloped Square. I punched a hole at the top of the opened envelope to hep keep the ribbon tied and in place. I also stuck the candy inside with a dimensional to help hold it in place too!
Like I said, just a little something - but just to let people know you remembered them!!
Now, if I could only get moving on my Christmas Cards! I may have to ask Santa to deliver them on Christmas Eve at this rate!!
Hope you're having a good weekend, and thanks for stopping by~

So...my friend Liz Price is THE BOMB!! She had a demonstrator get-together, although I missed it, and made some Super-Cool stuff with the Country Living Promotional Kit. She's been showing off a few things; and I saw this ornament, or gift tag hanger, on her blog - almost the same as this (But better - cuz she's the creator!!). Most of you (that didn't buy it) would think it's too late to order it, but you still could sort-of replicate something like it with other stuff you might already have. It starts with a chipboard star. With the kit, it has a matching star piece of Designer Series Paper to glue right on top (we know how to glue an irregular sized piece on and sand the edges, right?). Then I took a piece of 1" x 8" piece of coordinating designer series paper and scored at every 1/8" (Yup, a Little bit tedious, I must say!). Then folded it on those score lines, back and forth like a fan-fold. I attached the ends, and smushed (technical-term there) it together to make the cool center thingy (another technical-term). If that's totally confusing (probably), then you better come to a future First Friday Technique class, cuz we'll be making one on something soon!! Then I stamped the cool saying from the Country Living Stamp Kit set (which you could easily substitute), trimmed and punched it, and dimensionaled it on. And, then added the super-cool White Taffeta ribbon hanger! And...tahdah, A copy cat of Liz's ornament/gift tag hanger. What a nice accent to a gift, which then could be used for an ornament on the Christmas tree.
So, if you caught a few of my hints along the way, you could make this out of things you might already have in your stamping drawer, or basket, or closet, or - OK - room!! Anyway, I hope you make some time to do some nice homemade things for people this Christmas!
Thanks for dropping in ~

By the way, this is a project that we will make in class on Friday. I'll also be giving you a technique card so you'll have the measurements and directions for making more of them in the future!
Hope you're having a good week so far,
