I wanted a cute little thank you to be able to hand out this holiday season. These reindeer candy cane wraps were easy to make and inexpensive- so was able to make a whole bunch of them for just a few dollars.
Here are the supplies I used to create these cute treats!
Step 1: Trim Core’dinations Spotted Jillian Dot French Roast cardstock into 3″x3″ sections.
Using Tombow Xtreme Adhesive, wrap cardstock around two candy canes, and secure. I love using Tombow Xtreme Adhesive for projects like this- it really holds up, and doesn’t pop open even though it wraps around the candy canes.
Step 2: Using a leaf craft punch or template cut “ears” from French Roast and Vanilla Cream Jillian Dot cardstock.
Layer cut leaf shapes. Adhere “ears” to reindeer.
Step 3: Cut holly leaf, berries and red nose from Glitter Silk cardstock. Adhere to reindeer. Adhere googly eyes.
Step # 1 Using your Sand It Gadget, sand a strip of the border star’s along the 12 x 12 sheet of cardstock. Sand a few star’s within the cardstock sheet for the cuffs as well.
Core Tip: If you do not have any resin or are shy about trying it, try to get the look of aged resin pebbles by using Rangers Crackle Accents Medium. There are plenty of products out there you can try and get a similar look. The resin just stands up better to the elements especially for jewelry.
Step # 2 Apply a generous amount of crackle medium to the strip of cardstock and let dry.
Step # 3 Trim your sta’s from the Core’dinations Cardstock to fit each bracelet bezel and adhere.
Hello, Ava here to share a gift bag that will make a lasting impression for the receiver. Do you have a special occassion this summer;? Here is a quick up-scaled presentation to add lots of sparkle to the party.
Tip: Practice making this card using 8.5 x 11″ regular copy paper before you start with your favorite Core’dinations Cardstock to figure out all the folds.
Step # 1 Score lines on your suit cardstock base, sand and dust using your Core’dinations Dust Buddy. Tent fold the card and then freehand the rounded edges for the shoulder.
Step # 2 Spray your custom size card base Core’dinations Cardstock with a mixture of water and glycerin (16 to 1 parts) roll cardstock suit lapels while cardstock is still damp.
Step # 3 Create your pocket embellishment, adhere to card, add brads and shirt to finish off your card.
At first glance this card appears to have a strip of twine across the front of the card. After a closer look, you can see that Core’dinations Cardstock has been scored, which reveals the inner colored core that creates this “faux twine look”.

Nothing screams Holiday like a handmade gift set. Make some tags for your friends quickly and easily! And making your own gift box is SO easy with Core because it is sturdy and folds beautifully. Shaunte used her Silhouette for this project but you can find boxes templates virtually anywhere these days.
I cut this box using Silhouette file (http://www.silhouetteonlinestore.com/?page=view-shape&id=22477) (3D Artisan Box) using Core Impressions (Jenni Bowlin, Scarlet Wallpaper). I was worried that the deep embossing wouldn’t cut well with all the grooves, but it cut like butter. No problems!
After I cut the box, I assembled it using Tombo Mono liguid glue. It is my go-to adhesive for projects that need a strong bond. I have learned that tape runners and glue dots stop working over time on edges and flaps. Tombo Mono is awesome. Sometimes too awesome. Do not try to rearrange anything that has been glued with this stuff- the paper will shred!
I used the scraps leftover from cutting the box to create 12 gift tags. I circle cut the Core Impressions, and used a scalloped circle punch with some white core essentials. I glued those together, added a fun holly leaf punch with Core Couture to add some sparkle.
The original box cutting file included holes punched to add a ribbon to tie the box closed. When I cut the file on my machine, I took out the holes, and opted to use a Tombow Hook and Loop Tab for the enclosure. When I am wrapping gifts, I don’t have time to tie and untie a ribbon to get into the box, no matter how cute it is! The hook and loop are handy for quick access, and I still added the ribbon for looks! The tags look adorable in the matching box- and will make a great pre-Chrismas gift for a friend!
