Good mornin’, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop! Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month is Christmas or Happy Holidays! We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!
I decided to make a treat holder using the fun Tags & Trimmings bundle. Take a look-see:
This is such an easy little treat holder to make, y’all! Hang on!
To start with, I cut the two main pieces of the stocking in the Trim Your Stocking Thinlit set in Powder Pink. When you make this, you can cut a piece of card stock about 6″ x 6 3/4″ and both of the dies will fit on it and you’ll be able to get it thru the Big Shot!
I used the coordinating dies in the set to cut the top, heel and toe of the stocking from the pretty Year of Cheer Specialty DSP. And some “pom-pom trim” from a scrap of Whisper White card stock.
I inked up the sentiment from the Tags & Trimmings stamp set in Versamark and stamped it on the front of the stocking. Then I heat embossed it in Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder.
When you make one, add the decorations before you assemble the stocking. I used Liquid Glue to add all the little pieces and parts. I cut two of the large and lovely snowflakes from the Trim Your Stocking Thinlits – one each in Silver and Gold Foil. I also stamped one of the little buttons – in Versamark – on a piece of scrap Powder Pink, heat embossed it in Silver and cut it with the matching die. I piled them all up with Liquid Glue and added them at the top of the stocking.
To assemble the stocking, I used Tear & Tape Adhesive on the scored tabs (the dies do the scoring for you). If you’d like a good tutorial on how to put this baby together, you can check out Amy Koender’s video right here! I used silver Mini Tinsel Trim for the top “hangar”.
The final touch is a bow made with two lengths each of Silver and Gold Metallic Thread, adhered with a little scrunched up Glue Dot.
Et Voila! This little Tags & Trimmings treat holder is just the perfect size for a taste of chocolate, a gift card or a nice folded show-me-the-money gift. Snap it up and decorate or gift-give with it! Hope you like!

Okay. I’ve gotta have one. How do I get in line?
With the launch of this tool, we’re trying something different: testing a new reservation system. It acts like a true preorder: you reserve your spot and we guarantee shipment as soon as the product arrives in our warehouse. Customers will place reservations and receive their product at the same time. This system will allow us to get the product to market as soon as possible while avoiding backorders and efficiently managing inventory.
The global launch will feature three reservation windows. For each window, please note the following:
- Reservation quantities are while supplies last.
- 1 tool per customer per reservation window.
- You can participate in multiple reservation windows.
- In order to reserve your Stamparatus, you must provide your credit card information.
- Credit cards will not be charged until the Stamparatus ships from our facility. When you close your order, be sure to verify that your credit card and shipping information is correct.
