This is my second post today, so be sure to scroll down for more inspiration!
Welcome to Inky Antic’s Homemade Holiday Gifts Blog Hop! You are in the right place if you've hopped here from Trudy's blog. If not, be sure to start at the beginning of the hop to get some Homemade Holiday Gift ideas!
I chose to make the Card Pouch that is found in the tutorial section of SplitcoastStampers.
1 sheet of 12x12 paper (minimal)
2 sheets of 8 1/2 x 11 paper (minimal)
Scor Tape (minimal)
1 embossing folder (approx $5)
1 punch for the handle (or cut with a knife - FREE)
1 package of Candi ($3.99 gives you about 400 embellishments - or use a hole punch FREE)
4 white envelopes (minimal)
3 sheets of white cardstock (minimal)
1 length of ribbon (minimal)
1 bit of Honey Comb Pad for tree ($5.95 for a whole pad)
pearl glitter (minimal)
Nail Heads ($2.99)
1 edge punch (approx $15 ~ or use decorative scissors for less cost)
Total: $32.93 however you will have an embossing folder and punch to keep for yourself!
Adjusted Total: $12.93 however you will have plenty of Candi and Honeycomb pads left for additional projects!
ReAdjusted Adjusted Total: $2.99 for the nailheads which you could omit!
So now you see how I justify, justify, justify! The cost is minimal if you look at it my way!
These are the four adorable cards that are 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 inches. I made coordinating envelopes using another SCS tutorial.
My envelope flaps are stamped tone on tone with the ornament stamps. I colored parts of the images with white color pencil and then erased for a subtle white accent.
Other details you may not have noticed:
*There is a tiny strip of glitter along the scalloped pieces as well as the narrow border on the envelope...a very fun and inexpensive touch!
*The candy pieces are stamped in red ink and then coated with a glassy glaze/crystal effects so they shine!
*Faux stitching on the candy panels to frame them.
*Penguin images popped up on foam tape.
*I used an embossing folder to decorate my pouch...once purchased, cheaper than buying designer paper!
