Here's a fun Christmas project that is easy to make! It will make a wonderful Christmas ornament... just fill it with your favorite treat or gift card...it could make a great gift tag too...Just add your personalization and you are all set! Hmmmmm....I was thinkin'...that this would make a cute Snowman soup kit...just put the cocoa packet in the pocket with the candy cane then punch a hole and tie on a little bag with the mini marshmallows...I'll have to work on that one! Well anyway...Here's the instructions, have fun!
Supplies: Scissors, glue stick, Exacto knife, coordinating scrapbook paper and the stocking graphic (from PcCrafter.com).
1. Open your favorite design software and insert the stocking graphic onto the page. I size the image to about 8 1/2" tall x 5" wide. You will need to do any personalization now. Print out on presentation paper.
2. Cut out the stocking, leaving 1/4" of white around the edge. Then use the Exacto knife to cut on the black line for the opening of the stocking (see example).
3. Apply the glue all around the edge, about 1/2" wide. Make sure that you don't glue the pocket closed. Place the stocking onto the coordinating scrapbook paper and press firmly around the edges to seal. Let dry.
4. Cut out the stocking again, this time leaving just a little of the white showing...now would be the time to jazz it up a bit by adding some sparklies if you want! When it's dry, punch a hole and add a ribbon for hanging...fill with some Christmas goodies...enjoy!!
