Are these too cute, or what?? This tutorial was sent to me from Tami White, Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator. She sent out a Holiday Helper e-mail last week with this project and I think they are so adorable. I'm sending one to each of my niece and nephew for Christmas. Hope they enjoy. Tami's instructions said to use the scallop circle die cut for the Big Shot and I don't have that die, so I manipulated my digital cutting program to create this scalloped circle. It's about 2 1/2 inches wide. I was able to then punch the appropriate 1 3/4 inch SU circle punch for the window for the Sweet Treat Cups to fit through and again used the digital cutting machine to cut out 2 1/4 inch circles for the back so my marshmallows didn't fall out.
To create these, you just seal a Stampin Up Whisper White Medium envelope and then cut off 1 1/2 inches of one of the side ends. You use the part you cut off to apply your hat parts to and this will then slide over the large part of the envelope to act as the lid. When you crimp the envelope, it makes it smaller, so the part you cut off will have no problem sliding over the whole thing. The dimensions of the hat pieces are 2 x 3 3/4 inches and 1 1/2 x 4 3/8 inches. The eyes were made with Stampin Up 3/4" circle punch and 1/2" circle punches. Paper used was basic black, pumpkin pie, bashful blue, real red and glorious green. I also used a white gel pen, a Stampin Write black journal pen and Stampin Pastels (Real Red) and a Stampin Sponge to create the rosy cheeks.
The flower is the Stampin Up 5-petal flower punch, the leaves are Stampin Up Little Leaves Sizzlits die and the snow flake is from the Stampin Up Sizzlits 4 pack dies, Snowflakes set #2. The Stampin Up ribbon is the 3/4" Polka-dot grosgrain ribbon and the 1/4" Real Red grosgrain ribbon.
The stamped Merry Christmas image is from the Four the Holidays stamp set found in the Holiday Mini Catalog (good only until January 4th, 2010)
