DIY Xmas Gifts using ‘Feeling Grinchy’ Collection by Papercakes

HELLO BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE 🙂

I know the ‘gift giving’ time of Christmas is over but I created these super cute and easy gifts and thought I would share them with you anyway.

These gifts aren’t ‘strictly’ Christmas gifts anyway, you can change the theme of them to make birthday gifts or even valentine gifts for your special someone.

I have used the ‘Feeling Grinchy’ Digital Collection from Papercakes by Serena Bee to create these super cute gifts and a few different cut files from the Silhouette Design Store.

You don’t need a Silhouette machine to create these gifts…you can purchase the cut files, print and cut the shapes out and use them as templates.

I love these type of gifts because you can put them together so quick and they can be made last minute (in case your like me and forget birthdays a lot LOL). All you need is a computer and a printer and you ready to go.

So here goes:

XMAS DIY GIST 1 – HOT COCOA & BAILEY’S GIFT SET

I love how this little paper cup turned out… I filled it with;

  • 2 Packets of Mocha
  • Mini Bottle of Bailey’s
  • 2 Little bags of mini marshmallows
  • 3 Candy canes
  • and DIY shredded paper using little stripes of crape paper all cut up!

You can fill the cup with whatever you like… for example;

  • Sweets
  • Beauty Products
  • Stationary
  • Little toys
  • Crafty gifts – such as washi tapes etc.

You could also make one of these to include in your happy mail / snail mail that you send to your pen pals. Although I don’t know how well it will withstand the postage!

This little shadow box gift card holder is adorable, the cut file came with different little icons to use for the scene but i just switched them out for some little icons from Serena’s ‘Snow Day Collection’ and ‘Feeling Grinchy Collection’.

‘Sandy Claws’ On the Shelf

(This is a re-post from Papercakes blog, first published on December 16th 2016)

Here is ‘Sandy Claws’ and Bobby the elf having a snowball fight in my kitchen!

Hi Everyone,

I am so excited to show you my first project for Papercakes Designs Team, ‘Sandy Claws’ On the Shelf. This project was inspired by Serena’s Creepy Christmas Collection. It reminds me a little of ‘The Nightmare before Christmas’ and my children and I are big fans of Jack Skellington.

Before I created this project, I was researching ‘The Elf on the Shelf’ tradition to start for my children… which give me the idea to combine ‘The Nightmare before Christmas’ with ‘The Elf on the Shelf’…which become ‘Sandy Claws’ on the shelf.

At first I wasn’t sure how I could incorporate this idea with the collection…But the presents, skull garland and stocking icons, gave me the idea to create ‘Sandy Claws’ his very own cosy Christmas sitting room to sit in on the shelf.

This is what I came up with;

Christmas tree

Picture 1.jpg

I created the Xmas tree with black glitter card stock using my Silhouette Cameo, Click Here for the same cut file. I used some bling as baubles…using a little extra glue, I placed 2 bits of the same bling back to back on the edge of the Christmas tree branches.

Picture 2.jpg

For the presents under the tree, I used some of the present icons from the Creepy Xmas Collection and the Snow Day Collection. The presents have tabs on them to keep them up-right. This is another reason why I like digital scrapbooking designs because you can manipulate them to suit the needs of your projects in whatever way you like.

Fireplace

The Fireplace is a silhouette cut file for little LED tea lights.

Picture 4.jpg

I used some more icons from the Creepy Xmas Collection to dress the fireplace…Jack and Sally have their very own Christmas stockings. The ‘Making Christmas’ ornament on top of the fireplace is actually a sentiment from the Creepy Xmas Collection… I also added tabs on the back of that to keep it upright.

‘Sandy Claws’ Chair

Picture 5.jpg

The paper I used to create Sandy Claws chair was actually a 3×4 journaling card from the Creepy Xmas Collection, I manipulated the size of the journaling card in on my silhouette to suit my needs.

Here is a back view…

The chair is meant to hold a gift card in the bottom, but I created a little ‘Accordion Mini Album’ to hide in there. I used some more of the Creepy Xmas icons to decorate the hidden mini album.

I also added a couple of coin envelopes in to save ephemera bits. The mini album will be great to document all the mischief Sandy Claws gets up to this Xmas.

Picture 8.jpgHere is the back of the Accordion Mini Album… I used some icons from the Snow Day Collection for this.

And here is what the mini album looks like open. To make this I cut 3 pieces of paper to size and folded them in half. I then glued them all together to create the accordion style album.

Picture 10.jpgAnd here is Jack just chilling on my shelf waiting for the Christmas mischief to start!

Well that is all from for now, I hope you decide to make your very own ‘Sandy Claws’ on the shelf. It doesn’t have to be ‘Sandy Claws’, you could make the same thing for your elf. If you do recreate this project I would love to see some pictures, tag me on them on Instagram. Here’s some links to where you can find me online.
