Gotta Have Some Java

If you're like me, you love coffee.... I'm sipping on a cup of coffee while I write this post :)

Right now I'm in Christmas candy favor mode and since I love coffee and chocolate I thought I would make a coffee Christmas favor for my mini-series. So I decided to fill some Jaded Blossom 1x8 bags with chocolate covered coffee beans. Yummmmm :)

I used the Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons Java Great Day cutting file and cut out this super cute coffee pot.

I added some googly eyes to make his eyes bulge out from all the caffeine... lol. The sentiment comes from Art Impressions which I embossed in black and tied on with some twine.

Snow Balls

Anyone who knows me knows I love the snow. I love the snow covered trees, the smell of the fresh snow and the of course who doesn't love a good snow ball fight?

For my this favor (now the third in my series) I started with the Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons Snow Much Fun cutting file. Using my Cameo I welded the shadows of the boy and the title together to make the base of my tag.

But since it was so small I ended up having to change the font and delete the snowflakes and the word "much". I also added a plastic confetti snowflake with a glue dot.

I added a Peachy Keen face from the In the Garden stamp set... Love these faces! Next I filled my Jaded Blossom 1x8 bag with white gumballs. Then finally I tied the tag on with some twine.

Here is the new version of this guy. I used the print and cut feature to redo the sentiment,

Rudolph's Spares

Here is the second holiday candy favor in my mini-series that I'm sharing with you : Rudolph's Spares.

I've had so much fun crafting these candy tubes and learning more and more about my Cameo and its features.

I cut the tag out of green cardstock and the top layer is from one of my Christmas Paper stacks. The sentiment is a print and cut.

Rudolph is cut out with my EK Success Deer punch. I cut out his antlers with some kraft cardstock and attached them with a glue pen. Then I added a googly eye and a shiny red nose.

I filled some Jaded Blossom 1x8 bags with shiny red gumballs and tied on the tag with some twine.

Heeeheee I just love the holidays, crafting and of course I love candy :)

Grinch Poop

Hi everyone! Well the last two weeks have been super busy and I have been crafting up a storm between working and sleeping.. lol. In a previous post I told you that I bought a bunch of the Jaded Blossom 1x8 bags for candy and I thought I would do a mini-series of candy tube favors.

So I will start with my favorite so far... the Grinch! I grew up watching How the Grinch Stole Christmas and still watch it every year! So if course I had to use the Grinch for one of the favors.

This is the print and cut version... not the best picture - it's from my camera
I used my Silhouette and welded two shapes together to make the base of the tag. Then used the print and cut feature with the Grinched font for the sentiment. For the Grinch I did him 2 different ways one version a print and cut and the other paper pieced together.

I filled the tubes with Grinch poop (aka green gumballs) and just love how they turned out.

I will post pictures of each of the fun yummy filled favors as the week goes on.

Happy crafting!

Here is the Grinch that I put together instead of the print and cut.
