Santa and reindeer stocking stuffers; order Stocking Builder Punch now

It's nice to have little things to tuck into stockings, or to give cashiers, your favorite baristas, or anybody else. I went to a stocking stuffer class by my friend and downline, Barb, a couple of weeks ago. We made two each of four different items, along with a box that could be used for anything from cards to goodies. I only have a couple items left that lasted long enough to take photos of. Above, the From Santa single stamp decorates a folded piece of Real Red card stock that uses the retired slit punch to hold in a roll of Lifesavers.

Here's the inside view. We used the Scallop Trim Border Punch both for decoration and to loop the 1/8" Real Red taffeta ribbon through so we could close it.

This reindeer head is made with the Holiday Stocking die for the Big Shot. We used the color spritzer on the head, the red nose is textured with polka dots, and the antlers are made with the Lattice die. We used the Medium Jewelry Punch and Tiny Tags set. This makes a great cover for a candy cane. My kids loved theirs!

Stocking Builder Punch (item 124095 for $16.95) will not carry on to the next Idea Book & Catalog, so if you'd like to get one, order it before January 3. You can do that through my online store here.
