Celebrate Curtain Call Stockings
Good Monday Morning Peeps!!
Today I am sharing a fun little project made for the LateNightStampers Challenge 100. This weeks challenge is Celebration, a card or project for any type of Celebration. I am still in Christmas mode over here and what better celebration than that. I am celebrating family and friends with my project a cute stocking box that holds a little treat. I found the template for this stocking HERE and it is free. Gotta love that. I used Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenge for my colors on this first Stocking Box. The colors this week are Real Red, Old Olive, Certainly Celery, chocolate Chip and Whisper White.
I printed out the stocking front and back onto real red card stock. The heel, toe and cuff is old olive. I added a bit of Certainly Celery under the cuff with my scallop trim border punch. The entire stocking was embossed with my large dot EF. The Chocolate Chip comes into the stocking in the way of the sentiment which is from the Stampin Up "Four the Holidays" stamp set. I stamped with chocolate chip ink onto white card stock and curled and cut the end in the "V" shape. I added some real red satin ribbon and a white button from my stash with some white twine tied through it.
Here is another one I made as well, with a shot of the yummy Graham Cereal Mix treat package:
This one is made with Riding Hood Red and Sahara Sand card stock and the Vintage Wallpaper EF. I used some of the Riding Hood Red Striped ribbon I got a while back from the clearance rack and a button from the Deck the Halls Big Buttons pack. I also used some silver tinsel on the bow and button. The sentiment is from the "Four the Holidays" stamps set and is stamped with riding hood red ink onto the Sahara Sand card stock.
The recipe for the mix is:
1 box of Golden Grahams Cereal (6-8cups)
1 package of Holiday M&M's
1 cup cashews
1 package of vanilla almond bark
Combine the cereal, M&M's and nuts in a large bowl. Melt almond bark and pour over cereal mix and stir to coat thoroughly. Spread out on waxed paper to cool. Break into bite size chunks and store in air tight container.
** You can alter ingredients to suit your taste, with pretzels, or almonds or other cereals, like cheerios or chex.
Well, that is all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
