Stocking Stuffers or Fun Gift Ideas

Welcome to Funky Cards

Finally, a moment to craft!  Between work, school, and a special project that I can't quite talk about yet I have been so busy.  This is a crazy time of year at Michael's and it seems like I am always at work.  I love it, but I miss my crafting time!!

I have been following the monthly activities at Jaded Blossom. This website and store were started by Candace and Michelle, two super talented ladies that I really like!!

I wanted to get in on the fun so I made a project for the Crafter's Choice monthly challenge.  The requirements include using a product from the Jaded Blossom collection.  I used three products, two stamps and treat bags. 

The toppers for the candy sticks were made using the reindeer stamp from the Reindeer Magic Stamp Set and the Snowman stamp from the Snowman Kisses Stamp Set.

These are of course clear stamps.  Here is what I did to transform them to these cute toppers:
  1. Ink them in black onto white card stock.
  2. Scan them onto the computer.
  3. Load them into Photoshop.
  4. Color them.
  5. Export them into into Silhouette Studio.
  6. Add graphics, print and cut.
  7. Adhere a back that was cut from the Accents Essentials Cricut cartridge.
This sounds like a lot of work, but really it took a matter of minutes.

Two wrapped candy packages of Smarties were placed inside the 1" x 8" treat bags.  These bags can be purchased through Jaded Blossom.

Once the candy was secure, the toppers can be adhered with a matching blank, red back (cut from the Accent Essentials Cricut cartridge) using tape or glue, your preference.  

I hope you have been inspired to try making some of these.  They are so fun and easy to do!

Thank you for stopping by.
