Hi Stamping Friends!

Registration for two of my Holiday Classes ends today, so don't miss out!  Contact me to register for the Festive Flurry Ornaments & Gift Boxes Class and Winter Frost Holiday Frame Class, both on November 30th.  Class-To-Go Kits are available! 

And, I wanted to give you an up-close look at another fun project we'll be making at my Quick & Cute Stocking Stuffer Class!

Carmen  matchbook - holly jolly copy

Designed by Carmen DeBruce. CASEd from Dawn Olchefske at DO Stamping.

Carmen DeBruce brought this fun project for us to make at a team shoebox swap a couple months ago and I knew right away that I wanted to feature it at my Quick & Cute Stocking Stuffer Class

The pouch is made with a 11" x 3" piece of Island Indigo card stock, then decorated with a piece of 3-1/4" x 2-3/4" Winter Frost Designer Series Paper.  

The 11" x 1" Pool Party belly band is wrapped around the pouch and attached with a Rhinestone Brad (we'll be using a Candy Dot Brad Base with a Rhinestone Jewel Topper at the class). 

We used the holiday sentiment from Tags 4 You for the label and punched out additional Pool Party Label Bracket punches to adhere to the back to frame it.

Slide off the belly band and flip open the cover to reveal a pack of gum.  You could easily fit a fun-sized Hershey's bar or M&M's in there instead!

Create Your Own Flip-Top Gum Holder:

  • Start with a piece of 11" x 3" card stock.
  • Score along the 11" side at 3-1/2" and 7-3/4".
  • Insert the Word Window Punch at the far end of the piece until it's all the way to the back of the punch.  Center the punch, then punch. 
  • Your gum or candy will be wider than the hole, so you'll need to slide the punch over and snip out a little bit more of the hole on either side.  You may want to measure your gum and mark how wide the hole should be, so you don't punch too closely to the edge.

  • Slide the gum into the slot and the edges will fold naturally at the edges of the slot.  The flap is free—no adhesive necessary!
  • Add a 11" x 1" piece of card stock around the pouch as a belly band, held together with a Candy Dot Brad Base with a Rhinestone Jewel topper.

The one we are doing for the class has a Christmas Messages greeting on it instead, punched with the Decorative Label Punch.  I was trying to use all of the stamp sets that were featured in our Countdown To Christmas Class series on these projects, since you can earn the Stocking Stuffer class for FREE if you've taken all 4 parts (see below).
