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.
I also used some paper from the new Merry & Bright paper pad that’s filled with cute Christmas paper.
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?
