Holiday Bag Toppers!

These bag toppers are sized to fit Sandwich sized zip bags measuring approximately 6-1/2" x 2-1/2" in size when folded and they are  compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 bags.  The files come with all the paper elements shown and all of the elements can be used separately as well.  

Here's the tutorial for the Santa:

1.  Cut out all the pieces.
2.  Adhere the solid face piece on the main santa piece.
3.  Adhere the beard piece on the face.
4.  Use foam adhesive to adhere the hat scallops in place.
5.  Adhere the large ball to the hat end and use foam adhesive to adhere the mustache in place.
6.  Use foam adhesive to adhere the small ball on the hat end.
7.  Adhere the eyes in place.  Use foam adhesive to adhere the nose on the mustache.  (I forgot to take a photo with the nose in place :)  You can see it in the main image though!)






Please note that the photo appears to have a backing, but it is just my 
backdrop showing.  The topper only covers the top of the bag on both sides.

Holiday Envelope Bags for Treats


These envelope bags are similar to the taller ones I released earlier this year, except these are shorter!  I really love the versatility of these bags, there are so many uses for them! You can size them to fit your needs so they can hold tag, tickets, cookies, even small photos! You could even cut these in vellum to create your own glassine-like bags! All of these are compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 bags and follow the same tutorial. This bag comes sized at approximately 4-1/4" x 3-1/2" but can be sized to fit your needs. All of the elements can be used separately as well. 


Here's the tutorial:

1.  Cut out all your pieces and fold on the score lines.
2.  Place adhesive on the side tab and along the inside bottom tab.
3.  Fold the front piece over and adhere to the side tab.
4.  Fold the bottom tab up and adhere in place.
5.  Adhere the scallop circle on with foam adhesive.
6.  Adhere the Cookies for Santa circle on top of the solid circle then adhere in the center of the scallop circle with foam adhesive.
7.  Adhere the holly and berries in place.  Embellish and fill as desired!  





Here's the tutorial for the ornament:
1.  Cut out your pieces and fold the circles in half.  Adhere the long skinny strip to the center of the envelope bag.
2.  Place adhesive on one side of the circles.  Adhere two circles sides together.
3.  Adhere the other circle side in place.
4.  Place adhesive on the back of the circle and adhere to the center of the envelope bag.
5.  Adhere the bow piece at the top of the ornament.
6.  Form the small strip into a loop and adhere in the center of the bow.
7.  Your envelope bag should look similar to this now!  Embellish and fill as desired.

Battery Operated Tealight Characters!

Good Evening!  Today I am sharing my new 
Battery Operated Tealight Characters and Gift Box.  

These files work with a battery operated tealight and they come with all the paper elements shown. The files are compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats.  



Here's the tutorial:

2.  Grab one of your circle frame pieces and place adhesive all over the back of it.  Push the bottom tabs down so they are flat against your workspace. Insert the circle frame piece, adhesive side down.  Adhere it securely to the tabs.  I use a tongue depressor/craft stick to smooth mine out and adhere it in place.
3.  Your piece will look like this.
4.  Place adhesive on the back of the second circle frame piece then place it in adhesive side up (but don't push it all the way down yet).  
5.  Push your tabs down.
6.  Flip the piece over and push the circle frame down against those tabs and adhere in place.  
7.  Your piece should look like this now.  Grab the third circle frame piece.
8.  Place adhesive on the back side of the circle frame and adhere it on the form.  This will be the top.  Gather your solid circle.
9.  Flip the piece over and adhere the solid circle on the bottom.

10.  Your piece should look like this now.
11.  Flip the piece back over and your battery operated tealight will fit inside.
12.  Gather your snowman pieces.  Adhere the hat band on the hat and then adhere the holly on it.
13.  Adhere the smaller circle behind the face circle.
14.  Your face piece should look like this now.
15.  Place adhesive on the backside of the face and adhere it on the candle base as shown.
16.  Adhere the hat in place.
17.  Tie a ribbon (or twine) around the paper base of the tealight holder.
18.  Your holder should look like this now.  






This box is approximately 4-1/4" x 4-1/2" x 1-3/4" and it works with all the Battery Operated Tealight Characters shown above.  The file comes with the box base, the box lid, and the coordinating mats as well as a window sheet cut.  The file is compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats.  

Here's the tutorial:
1.  Cut out all your pieces and fold on the score lines.
2.  Adhere the mats in place as shown.
3.  Place adhesive on the four tabs of the base box and on the four tabs of the lid.  Adhere the tabs to the box sides.  Your boxes should look similar to this.
4.  Place the lid over the box base.
5.  This is a view with one of the tealight holders inside the box.
6.  This shows that tealight holder with the lid on.  

Note - the file comes with a window sheet cut.  I do not have it in place as it makes it difficult to photograph.


Here's a look at the new files hitting my store later this week!

Battery Tealight Holders

These will follow the tutorial for the Tealight Base (steps 1-8) which can be found HERE.  After you build the tealight base, these will have a wrap that go around each that you simply adhere in place!  The little turkey has an extra piece where the beak is.  For that you just adhere the little tab to the face area and bend it down so it sticks out.

Decorative Battery Tealight Holders



These battery operated tealight holders come with the box base, insert, and box top that include the holes for the candles to fit in.  The files also include the decorative border shown with each design.  The finished project is approximately 9" x 2" x 1".  These are all compatible with the 8x12 and 12x12 mats.

Here's the Tutorial:

This box was designed to be the lid of the 5 count candle tealight files.  The lid slips over the candle base to make these easy to give as gifts.  The box also comes with a base so that it can be used on its own as well.  The box is approximately 9-1/8" x 2" x 2-1/2" when finished and is compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats.
Here is the tutorial:
 1.  Cut out the lid and mats.  Fold the lid piece on the score lines and place adhesive on the two middle (short) tabs.  Note: You will not need the base box if you are covering a candle box.  This is the same box, it is only included in this file in case you want to use it on its own as a gift box.
2.  Adhere the side tabs to the middle tab.
3.  Each side should look like this now.
4.  Adhere your mats in place.
