A Little Bit of 3D Christmas

A Little Bit of Christmas in July September

Here is a handful of projects completed last year! 

While I primary tend to lean toward card making, I do a one time a year Christmas project class.

I scan Facebook, Pinterest, and other sites for inspiration of fun 3D projects.

Stampin' Up! demonstrators and other papercrafter are a well of fun options!

The Boozy Hot Cocoa from PinkBukaroo is probably one of my favorites💞🎄

I also created Ghirardelli Square Boxes by Linda Bauwin found on YouTube.

The tags galore I fashioned from Stampin' Up! products.

A variety of tags offered inspiration for the class attendees...

 Each tag came from the 2018 Stampin' Up! assorted catalogs.

I stayed with a fairly traditional color scheme.

Next, are a selection of individual tea bag holders inspired by a YouTube video created by Kylie Bertucci.

Designer Series Paper (DSP) played center stage for these simple treats. 

(This may have been a retired set as it has taken me some time to incorporate DSP into my crafting.)

A mixture of tags added a fun twist.

A little bow held the tea bag in place.

Layering an assortment of tags added a new look.

Wrapped Hersey Nugget Treats is currently a staple to my 3D Christmas Project class.

Some of these tags came from talented crafters that shared their inspiration online with the Universe

(While I have credited some of the creations I am posting, I am afraid my memory does not allow giving all the individual create due as these are projects from last year 😔)

 Others came from a diversity of Holiday decor found in and out of my surrounding...

And still others came from old fashion playing with the supplies and noticing something new.

Following a creative play session in my craft studio, I was left with a large pile of scraps...

Tags! Of course! The small images of a heart, tree, and present created a perfect focal point!

 I simply glued scraps of Designer Series Christmas Paper to a piece of Whisper White Cardstock in Tetris fashion. Each scrap connected with another until the whole sheet was covered. Once the glue dried, I used dies to cut out the images.

 Sewing them to the Stitched Crumb Cake Circles, instead of adhering with glue, offered a home made quilting vibe.

Here are a few more variations.

Pompoms in Christmas decor also made their way into my Christmas crafting...Just Cute!

A little bit of tradition still holds fast along side an out of ordinary array of colors used in these tags.

After searching long and wide for a tutorial on creating a custom sized box, I finally came across Connie Stewart's Simple Stamping Box Making Shim and Custom Box Making videos. How fabulous!

Some came with Pompoms and some with Ribbon, but both sets come with a customizable box!

I continued the same color scheme for these coffee tags. 

These tags garnished my annual homemade cookie boxes that I delivered.

As Christmas approached, I returned to a traditional color selection with these three money pouches I created for my nephews.

Another project came from a class I attended in the summer of last year. As soon as the the 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday arrived, I was inspired to create a Christmas project.

The Designer Series Paper and Christmas ribbon offered the color selections.

Following a search, I also located the tutorial offered by Teri's Stampin' Magic.

I created a couple of variations of this project, but only photographed this one.

Finally, one last creations to wrap up my 2018 Christmas smorgasbord (which does not include my cards)...

A Christmas buffalo check garland perfect for a mini Christmas tree.

There is so much inspiration out there!

I am thankful to share in the talent and creativity of others that provide fun projects that I in turn can share. 

I hope I have been able to pass on some inspiration to you too!

Currently, I am preparing for my 2019 Christmas in October Open House. I am back at scouring the Internet for ideas and inspiration and looking forward to sharing what I find soon.
