Tags and Trimings Stockings

Well, it is definitely looking a lot like Christmas!!  Snow is falling outside and boy is it cold!  My to do list is getting smaller (thank goodness) and I can see my desk finally in the craft room!  When I first saw this stamp set and dies in the Holiday Catalog, I knew that it would be on my shopping list.  I love pillow boxes, and the fact that you can make this adorable stocking as well just makes this set.  I decided to make these for my daughter to take to the Wellness Center and I gave myself a project!  But I loved how they turned out.  They were definitely worth the time and effort.

It is also a good way to use up some of those paper scraps that we have laying around.

I die cut all my pieces first, as well as the pieces that I wanted to use for decoration.  I then put on the tear and tape and put everything together assembly style.

I had stockings everywhere!  Then I noticed that they started disappearing - the little elves were at it again.  I ended up making 50 of them.

Some I made with greetings and some without.  I decided I would get some candy canes to put inside the pillow boxes.  I was in Sam's club and saw this container and decided to get it.  Unfortunately, I had left my glasses at home and thought it said 100 candy canes which would be perfect since I planned on putting 2 inside each box.

Well, as you can see, the count is 500!!  Needless to say, everyone is getting extra candy canes this year!

Here's one basket ready to go and an extra basket of candy canes!!

Well, I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday traditions.  Have a great weekend!

Thanks for stopping by,
