Here is a bright & cheery purse I made from snowman paper. Very simple purse – just cut the paper to fit the inserts! I added a charm made with jewelry supplies from Craft Fantastic and tied it to the handle with some pretty ribbon.

House Ornament

Looking for a little gift ornament or tag that’s quick to make? I have something for you! This Sizzix die cut project is easy enough to make multiples in a jiffy.

I used up a bunch of paper scraps (Basic Grey Lemonade) for my project today. Get your scraps together and place all the dies from 658785 Sizzix House Thinlits onto the 656499 Sizzix Magnetic Platform (my favorite new tool! No more zillion Post-its to hold the dies in place.) and cut with Sizzix Big Shot.

Sponge all the edges of pieces with brown ink.


Cover a chipboard coaster with paper. Sponge edges with brown ink.

Add house to chipboard base. Add some Polar White Flower Soft for snow.

Christmas Poppers!

I have a project on the Sizzix Blog today… head on over and see how I made these fun Christmas Poppers!
