Candy Cane Holders

Thanksgiving or Anything Fall all month long at Crafting Happiness Challenges!
Come link up your creations!


Today I'm sharing some Candy Cane holders that can be passed out to students, given to staff at office visits, added to stockings, and so many more ideas. The Candy Canes I used are Raspberry flavored. :)

This Silhouette cut file did include a small tag that I chose to leave out of my project. It would come in handy when added to gifts under the tree, but I intend to just randomly pass them out to office staff, cashier, bag boys, etc when I'm out and about running errands.

Cardstock: Recollections
Design Paper: Simple Stories- Winter Cottage
Other: Raspberry Candy Canes

Turkey Box Card Envelope



Thanksgiving or Anything Fall all month long at Crafting Happiness Challenges
Come play along!!

These envelope box cards are super simple and easy to create, but there's one piece that I have no idea where it goes. It looks like the triangle that goes in the middle of the front, but it's included in the design file as a solid piece. I don't get it. Obviously whatever it is, didn't stop me from finishing this card, but I feel so stupid because I can't figure out what it's for. Leave a comment if you know what I'm talking about. :)




Cardstock: Recollections
Design Paper: Stampin' Up
Other: Foam tape to adhere body to feathers

Thanksgiving or anything Fall all month long at Crafting Happiness Challenges!

We were invited to our neighbor's son's 1st birthday party in late October. This is the card I made for him. The party was on Oct 29th, and she had itty bitty pumpkins for the kids to paint. Bonnie LOVED doing that. What a great idea. We had a great time helping them celebrate.

Cut File: Lori Whitlock's Side Step Birthday Card in the Silhouette store #200168
Cardstock: Stampin' Up & Recollections
Design Paper: From my leftovers. It's either from Simon Says Stamp or Pink & Main... sorry I can't remember.
Inks: Stampin' Up- Gorgeous Grape, Bermuda Bay, Mango Melody
Other: Inking around the balloons gave it great dimension. I also added a foam square to the back of the blue balloon to make it stand out.

This is such an easy kind of card to make, and the fun fold gives it great dimension and character.
