Sleigh Treat Holders

Felt Hat Cards

Felt Hat Cards

These are both made out of felt and glued onto cardstock card.
I stitched it with twine to accent the hats.


The hat is from the Creative Memories Cheerful Seasons cartridge.
The hat is sized in Cricut Craft Room Width - 3.514  Height 5.167 I welded the 2 hats together to form the card.  Then cut the layers in felt.

Pine Cone Topiary

First I gathered up some pine cones around our yard.

Next I bought 6- 4" clay pots

I painted the with Turquoise Apple Barrel Acrylic Paint
that I picked up from Walmart

With The Imagine Snow Angel Cartridge I printed out 2 sizes of snowflakes.
1-1/2" and 2" snowflakes. You can find these snowflakes on page 18 of the handbook.
They did not cut out. I guess it is another gliche with the update.
So I had to hand cut them out.

Before I hand cut the snowflakes out I sealed the paper with Triple-Thick Crystal Clear by Krylon.
I didn't want the ink to run when I used Mod Podge to adhere them to the pot.

Next I applied Mod Podge to adhere the snowflakes to the pot.

After I applied Mod Podge the snowflakes to the pot and they dried I sealed the entire pots with
Triple-Thick Crystal Clear by Krylon. This gave it a nice shine and protects the paper image.
I glittered the rim of the pot with Martha Stewart very fine glitter. Some of the pots I glittered with Martha Stewart Tinsel glitter for a different look.

Next I purchased a 6 pack of 3"styrofoam balls.
I chose my pine cone by selecting the ones that were the same size.
Then I glued them onto the styrofoam balls with hot glue.

Next I weaved some holly ribbon through out the pine cone ball
I found a Walmart.
 I found the berries at Walmart also and cut apart the bouquet for the berries on the topiary.
I inked a dowel rod with brown in for the stem of the Topiary.
I pushed it into the styrofoam ball and secured it with hot glue.
I put styrofoam in the Pots and stuck the dowel into the pots and secured it also with hot glue.
