One of my favorite things about Christmas is the magic of twinkling lights. Because of that I am always on the lookout for projects that are able to be lit with a battery-operated candle or light. With a bit of vellum, this Fireplace Box would be so cute placed on a mantel with a light inside! You could even give it to a friend with a treat inside and then include a light so they can use is as a decoration afterward.
The idea for this project began with the darling large Santa from the Santa’s List paper
of the Carta Bella A Very Merry collection
. I LOVE him and just HAD to use him as a focal point for a project. I looked around the Silhouette Design Store and found a cut file for this Fireplace Box and knew he would look so cute next to it unloading Christmas presents for the family he was visiting.
Doesn’t it look festive with a light tucked inside! It makes me want to snuggle up with my kids and read them the classic story, “Twas the Night Before Christmas.”
Do you enjoy creating dimensional papercrafts to decorate your home for the holidays? I love it! These kind of projects always add that magical touch to a room!

Delivering delicious, homemade treats to neighbors and friends is one of those iconic holiday traditions that I adore. If you are going to take the time to take a treat, why not package them in an adorable way while you are at it?!
The window allows a peek inside to the homemade goodies. You can use several types of materials for the window; re-purposed clear packaging, a sheet protector, or a transparency. I chose to use a heavy-weight clear presentation report cover. These can be purchased at your local office supply or copy store.
Everyone loves homebaked goods during the holidays! This stocking box would be the perfect way to deliver them. I hope you feel inspired to create your own holiday treat packaging!

Have a great day!
Happy Fall, friends! The minute the weather turns cool my family and I start craving pumpkin chocolate chip muffins. We always make several batches; some of the batches are for us to eat, but then we also like to make additional batches to take to our friends in the neighborhood.
This year I used the A Perfect Autumn collection by Echo Park Paper
to create a darling tote to package up our muffins. The tote fits 9 muffins stacked in three rows inside a cellophane bag perfectly, and is sooo much cuter than a zip-top bag!
I created a tag for this bag by trimming one of the 3×4 Journaling Cards
to a smaller size. I then notched the top two corners to create a tag shape.
I varied each bag a bit by using different tags and elements to accent the die cut pumpkins and leaves. On the polka dotted bag, I fussy-cut the word “FALL” from one of the 3×4 cut apart Journaling Cards
Next, I added the squirrel and leaf sticker from the Element Stickers
. I used a small chipboard circle with an acorn to accent the squirrel and added a sprinkling of brads
above his head for some dimension.
Don’t those muffins look delicious peeking out!
I needed a quick gift to take to several people as a THANK YOU for helping me out with a church event. I purchased some beautiful, pumpkin-scented candles and then decorated them with a brown, satin ribbon bow and a beautiful, die-cut flower.
I used two shades of orange cardstock and the Spellbinders Textured Flowers dies the Platinum 6 Die Cutting Machine to create the flowers. The leaves are cut from Carta Bella Classic Green Shimmer Cardstock.
These dies are GORGEOUS!!! I love that the petals and leaves have elegant line details … so different than just a plain die! Love that!
I love when I can use my craft supplies to dress up an everyday object. Try adding a handmade flower to the next gift you give to kick it up a notch! It definitely adds that special, custom touch!
