Left is Sues. Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White. Run the Cherry Cobbler through the Big Shot with the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder. Add a scalloped border at the bottom. Beautiful!
Mine is the Santa. Just lots of punches, and some googly eyes to make him a little crazy. :)
Cardstock is 9" x 3 3/8". Score at 3 3/4" and fold up. I free hand cut the top to make it tag-shaped. You'll want to use Sticky Strip up the sides, so it really holds well.
Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes, Simple Snowflake
Cardstock: Marina Mist, Real Red, Whisper White, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie
Ink: Marina Mist
Other: Snowflake punch, Owl punch (cut the ears off to make it a penguin), Scallop die, Fire rhinestone circle brads, Sticky Strip, Marina Mist thin ribbon, 1/8" hole punch
To get the die cuts onto the fabric, you first iron on the self-adhesive stuff to the fabric. Then run that through the Big Shot with your dies.
She just ran fabric (no adhesive) through for the front and back Scallop Square pieces.
Materials: Serif alphabet, Scallop Square, Fall Leaves #2, Big Shot, fabric, self-adhesive backing
I just love it...I don't know which side to turn up!

This is my box lid - everyone's was different, depending on which square of designer papers they had left. Some had the white poinsettias, some had the red ones, one used the bells - they all turned out beautifully!
We used a lot of different accessories, and everyone's was just a little bit different.
Stamps: Delightful Decorations
Cardstock: Crumb Cake textured, Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, Deck the Halls designer series papers
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Always Artichoke
Other: Ornament/Designer Label/Curly Label/5-petal flower/ 3/4"/ 1"/ 1/8"/ 1/16" punches, Very Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware, Cherry Cobbler & Always Artichoke seam binding, Glimmer Brads Basics, Antique brads, Stampin' Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots, bone folder (to curl up the edges of the flowers to make poinsettias)....I think that's it. Oh yeah - and Sticky Strip. You need a strong tape to attach the cardstock to the box lid and bottom. Those paper mache boxes don't want to adhere to mono-adhesive very well.
For this main image panel, I stamped the daisies onto the Crumb Cake first, then ran it through the Big Shot with the embossing folder.

These are my friends that I've been stamping with since we hooked up at Convention 2001 in Las Vegas. This was our 9th Annual Gathering in Minnesota - hard to believe we've had this tradition for that long. They all live out there, so I fly out and they drive in to the city. I love getting to visit with them like this.
This is one of our famous "couch pictures". Nikki is the only one that can set everyone's camera on a timer, so she takes all the pictures and runs back to sit in front. Then we all try hard not to laugh too much.
