Reindeer Candy Cane Wraps

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!

Candy Cane Reindeer Supply List:

1

Step 1: Trim Core’dinations Spotted Jillian Dot French Roast cardstock into 3″x3″ sections.

2

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.

3

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.

Repeat for additional reindeer.

Creating Your Own Cardstock Bracelets

Hello, Ava here  to share a cute way to dress up a bracelet for the summer using the Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Seasonal Impressions collection to celebrate the month of July.

Supplies:
Ranger, Crackle Accents medium
Tombow Adhesive
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.
Now, that is fun bracelet to wear for the summer!

Hello, Ava here  to share a Congratulations Card for a young man who recently got a new full time job.

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.

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.

Easy-peasy!

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!
