Today I’ve got a sweet little Christmas craft to share with you. A cute paper stocking gift holder!
Sizzix recently sent me the Brenda Walton Stocking Gift Holder die that’s been on my wish list for a while now. The die cuts all the pieces to create adorable little stockings again and again with your Big Shot or other Sizzix die cutting machine.
To cut the pieces for the stocking from the die, I made a Sizzix sandwich by stacking an extended cutting pad, a sheet of paper from the Merry & Bright paper pad, the die face down, then another extended cutting pad on top.
I folded the tabs down and glued the stockings together.
Time to embellish! I glued on the cute toe and heel pieces. I love how you can mix and match the different patterns of paper that come in the paper pack.
Then I added the top of the stocking, folded a strip on the lines to create a small medallion, then added a few more embellishments to get my stocking all ready for Christmas!
It makes me so happy to make such a cute little craft in such a short amount of time with my Big Shot and Sizzix dies. There are so many things you can do with these cute little stockings, and I can’t wait to make more for the holidays.
So tell me, am I crazy for starting Christmas prep so early? When do you start getting ready for Christmas?
