Little Gifty Things - Santa's Workshop

This weekend I had my Santa's Workshop class - here's 2 of the fun things we made (the other 3 will be posted on Thursday):  Most of them use the new Close To My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge (Z1686, $99).  I LOVE this cartridge.  I don't feel the need to buy a bunch of other cartridges because there are 700 shapes on this one.  So with the different sizes, you can do 32,000 different combinations! wowie.  PLUS it comes with 3 coordinating stamp sets AND 3 sheets of Dimensional Elements.

Gift Card Holder
The pillow box and tag cutouts are Cricut shapes (yay, I can make them in any color!).  I cut mine at 5 1/2" so I could get two on a 12x12 sheet.  It holds a gift card nicely!   

Supplies Used:  Colors-Holiday Red, Topiary, White Daisy; Believe Paper Pack; Stamp Set:  December 25th (C1469, $13.95).  The ribbon is from my local craft store.  For adhesive on the box, I recommend Terrifically Tacky Tape or Miracle Tape.  It's super sticky and will work great to hold the box together.  Tombow just isn't sticky enough.

Decorated Post-It Note Holder
I LOVE decorating Post-It notes for Christmas.  This one is a 3x3 Post-It note pad decorated with a little paper.  Last year we did them with a Velcro dot enclosure, but this year it's more like a book cover.  

Supplies Used: The flowers are from Hooray Bouquet (D1491, $17.95).  (I cut out the flowers with the Cricut first.)  Kraft Card Stock (Z1375, $9.50) (Desert Sand would work, too). Paper Pack: Elemental (X7141B, $9.95). Ink Colors: Pacifica, Sorbet, Sky and Desert Sand (for edging).  Just Blooms paper butterflies (Z1463, $5.95 for 68 butterflies in different sizes).   Sponge Daubers (to color the butterfly), Basic Button Assortment (Z1391, $5.95), Sorbet Waxy Flax (Z1249, $3.95), Glue Dots, Foam Mounting Tape.

SO fun.  Come back in 3 days to see the other 3 goodies we made at my Santa Workshop.
If you want to come and make these little treats, I'm having another class on Saturday, December 10 at 10am.  Call or email me if you'd like to join us!  The class is just $15 or it's free with your $15 minimum Close To My Heart order.  Or if you want to buy the supplies to make your own treats, click here to shop online!  Bring a friend!



The Santa's Workshop class was lots of fun -- the projects cute and well thought-out. I will definitely be making some for my giving this year ... as soon as my Cricut cartridge comes! Thanks, Lisa!


I loved the items we made in class - thanks for making the class so much fun Lisa!
