25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 2017 - DAY 20 - Holly Days

Hello crafty friends! I hope you are enjoying the prepaprations for holidays as much as I do. Today I am presenting the project #20 of 25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS papercrafting tutorial series.

This time I have made a shaker card with a matching clear tag - it's all black, white and silver but has lots and lots of texture as I have used various embellishments and lots of different materials.

Please check out the photos and a video tutorial below:

25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 2017 - DAY 18 - Santa Shaker Tags

Hello and welcome back! It is the DAY 18 of 25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS series. 

Today I am going to make a set of 3 shaker tags - all similar but each one is unique. I have recycled some corrugated cardstock from the packaging to make a background and it turned out to work beautifully with thin dies!

You can find the full step by step instructions on how to make those tags in a video tutorial down below:

25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 2017 - DAY 17 - We Wish You

Hi and welcome back to the DAY 17 of the 25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS tutorial series! 

The set of treat boxes I am presenting today is a super easy and quick project and is much fun to make.

Each box is created out of a rectangular piece of cardstock - you won't need any dies or templates. I used some heat embossing and Black Soot distress stain to decorate the front.

Watch the video down below where I reveal the whole creative process!

25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 2017 - DAY 16 - Peace on Earth

Hi paper crafters! I hope you are having fun preparing for Holidays. I am presenting a project #16 of my 25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 2017 series!

Today I have created a clean and simple watercolor card - not something I normally do but I greatly enjoyed the process!

Once I saw this fabulous sleeping angel die by Magnolia I knew I wanted to use it for the Holiday project - and here it is - my vision of the peace on Earth. :)

Want to know how to make this card! Please find the instructions in the video below:

25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 2017 - DAY 15 - One Bag Advent Calendar

Hello and welcome back! It's the DAY 15 project of the 25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 2017 tutorial series.

I have already introduced several Advent Calendars this year but this one is special:
It's perfect for little children who can't make it to unwrap just one gift at a time and it's also great as a last minute Advent Calendar because you don't have to have all 25 gifts prepared by December 1st. And finally - you don't even have to wrap the gifts!

So here are some photos and a video tutorial - hope you will find it useful!

25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 2017 - DAY 14 - Christmas and the City

Welcome back to the DAY 14 of 25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 2017 tutorial series!

To make this Holiday card I have re-purposed some of the dies - I used the small cottage die set plus a layering background set to create a big building and a hole reinforcer makes a great door wreath! 

Check out the video down below to see how it was made:

25 DAY OF CHRISTMAS 2017 - DAY 13 - Snow Globe Shaker Tag

Welcome to the DAY 13 of 25 Days of Christmas paper crafting tutorial series!

To create a base for today's clear shaker tag I have re-purposed a window die. After all - a snow globe does not necessarily have to be ball shaped! 

I have placed all the elements of this little scene inside the pocket - just like with the real snow globe!

Watch the video tutorial below where all the process is shown step by step:

25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 2017 - DAY 12 - Jump for Joy

Hello, it's Olga. My project for today is an Advent Calendar card - yes, it is an Advent Calendar that can actually be mailed in an envelope!

I have combined several different stamps to create this cute Christmas scene. The card turned out to be flat and mailing friendly. I also used some "scratch here" stickers to make calendar with - watch the video to see how it was done!
