The stocking is cut at 2 1/2" and has pale green bling on the cuff. The snowflake is cut at 2 1/2 " also and is blinged out with clear rhinestones. The "y" is cut at 2 3/4" and is outlined using a white jellyroll pen. I also did some pen "stitching" around the edge of the card. I tied a bow using a silver metallic cording and a metallic red ribbon and curled the ends around a pen. It is adhered using a glue dot. On the inside of the card I measure the gift card and then cut slits to slide it into using a notch cutter by making memories. Rhinestone bling and ribbon purchased at Michael's.
The second item I created is a stocking stuffer for my 6 year old daughter. Demi has loved snowmen since her very first Christmas when she received a stuffed snowman. My Mom started giving her snow globes for Christmas each year and she now has a growing collection. Dee and I always give her a snow-related Christmas ornament of some sort and we usually paint a snowman figurine for her too. It is my Florida-baby's greatest wish to go and see snow! So I knew that anything I created for her had to have snowmen and snowflakes featured.
After spending most of the month of November sick, I had plenty of empty Sucrets Cough Lozenge tins left over. They are the perfect stocking stuffing size! I cleaned up the tin, removed all the labels and got to work. Some more paper from my scrap stash covers the lid exterior and interior. The snowman is cut from the Doodlecharms cartridge. His hat and scarf are from the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge (the groom's top hat and the pirate's sash).
I glittered the band on his top hat with some fine green glitter (Michael's), inked the details, gave him some rosy cheeks with a little bit of chalk and added two rhinestone snowflakes (Michael's).
Then I got to work creating the gifts to go inside the tin. Demi is such a girlie-girl! She loves playing dress-up, jewelry, hair accessories, and make-up. No make-up in this gift but she did get her wish for some "dangly" earrings!
