Dressed for Christmas

Hello everyone, how is the Christmas shopping going? Do you have all your presents sorted yet?
I still have the main presents to get but all the small handmade ones are done. Phew.
I had quite a few little gifts and thankyous to make this year and I couldn't go past the lovely dress up framelits to help me along.

What do you think of my Mrs. Claus  dress?
 The scallops are made using the Scallop oval Punch. Punch once then punch a second time close to the original to get a little scalloped edge piece like this. I cut one in half for the collar. White scallops on the bottom of the dress are from the other dress framelit.
And here is the greeting I stuck into the little box attached to the back of the dress. I just used a wooden skewer cut down. The postage stamp punch and a computer generated greeting on whisper white.
The back view.  I have attached the skewer with some washi tape. Gotta love that stuff.
What did I put in the little box - Lip gloss of course!!!
The little box measurements are:
7.5 cm x 8.5cm
Along the 7.5cm (which is the width i.e. horizontal)
Score 1.5cm; 3cm; 4.5cm; 6cm
Along the 8.5cm (which is the length i.e. vertical)
Score 1.5cm
Cut into the score lines  along the 7.5cm  width up to the 1.5cm score line.
Crease all score lines and fold together. Join with glue.

I ended up with nearly 20 of these.

Another gift I made was this little Snowman holder using the Purse Bigz Die.

I saw this idea on Pinterest. Here is the side view for you.

 I have just cut off the top part of the purse and left it open to place my gifts in.

Everyone got a cotton carry bag in various colours. So I could remember, which present had which colour bag in it, I made my gift tags using the Warmth and Wonder Christmas Tree Stamp. I stamped different coloured "lights" on each tree to match the bag inside.
Lastly today I want to show you these cute little snowman 'bread tags" that was an idea from Dee Slater.
They are made with the Chalk Talk Framelit and are so quick and easy.
Happy Christmas Crafting.
Thanks for dropping by. Come back soon, I have heaps more to share before Christmas!


  1. Oooh, so cute! Love Mrs Claus' dress :) And the snowman is speaking to me too. Can't wait to see what else you post this week while I try to get the energy to address my cards. Lol!

  2. Love these projects Vicki, and we loved our surprises in the mail. Cute little Mrs Claus' dresses with the lipgloss went down a treat with my girls, so thank you thank you from Karre & Anna, and a BIG THANKS from me, my friend. Have a lovely Christmas and keep the inspiration coming for next year.
