Looking for those last minute gifts?
We have a few little goodies that would be nice Lunder the tree!
For Thanksgiving I made these cute little Acorn candy kisses treats. I used the new stamp set “Acorny Thank You”, and punch from the Stampin’ Up! 2015 Holiday catalog.
The instructions are really simple….
Each strip measures 1 1/4″ x 5″. I then scored each strip at 2 1/2″, 3 1/2″ and 4″. Fold and burnish the score lines using a bone folder. I then adhered the candy kiss on the inside of the strip between the 2 1/2″ and 3 1/2″ score lines using a glue dot.
For the acorns I stamped the acorn tops using Delightful Dijon, Tip Top Taupe and Wild Wasabi and then punched them out using the Acorn punch. The acorn bottoms were punched out using natural white card stock.
I attached the acorn using dimensionals and another glue dot to close the flap. They were very easy to assemble and look adorable. I hope you enjoy!!
This coming week I am participating in a shoebox swap at our monthly Inspiration night.
I found this card on Pinterest of course. The designer is a demo by the name of Inge Blom.
I loved the layers and the color combination. Don’t let those layers fool you, it was pretty easy to assemble once you get started. Hope you enjoy and thanks for stopping by!
Thank you Inge for the inspiration!

Wow! Where did this month go? I cannot believe next week is November already. But I am looking forward to going to the OnStage Stampin’ Up! event coming up in a few weeks. How fortunate for me that Tampa is one of the cities chosen to host a local event. I am looking forward to seeing what new “goodies” Stampin’ Up! has in store for us. More to follow regarding OnStage!
