Hello everyone!

Are you ready for some serious cuteness this month at C.C. Designs?  These Swiss Pixies just melt my heart!

I ran across this adorable SVG file and thought it would be absolutely perfect for this little cutie. I of course had to play around with it a little so that the layers were matted with white…lol

Tiny Easter ~ Treat Holder Tutorial

Hello everyone!

It’s time for another tutorial for C.C. Designs,  and I’ve got a cute little treat holder to share with you all.  For this project I used the super adorable Llama from the Tiny Easter Clear Stamp Set.  This little guy is so stinkin’ cute!!

Llama Treat Holder Photo 1

Supplies Needed to construct the treat holder:

C.C. Designs Tiny Easter Clear Stamp Set
C.C. Designs Tiny Easter Outline Metal Dies

White Card Stock:
(1) cut to 2 ¼” x 9 ½” – scored at ½”, 1 ½”, 2 ½”, 3”, 6”, and 6 ½”
(2) cut to 2 1/8” x 2 7/8”
(2) cut to 2 1/8” x 3/8”
(2) cut to 2 1/8” x 7/8”

From C.C. Designs Easter Paper Pack:
(2) cut to 2 ¾” x 2”
(2) cut to 2” x ¾”
(2) cut to 2” x ¼”

10” of double sided ribbon
Strong double sided tape – I use Scor-tape
Double sided foam tape
Bone folder
Scoring platform
Scalloped Circle Dies
Small die of your choice – used to make hole for the candy treat
Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Caramel Bunnies

  • Score the White Cardstock (2 ¼” x 9 ½”) as shown (Do not fold yet)
    at 1/2″, 1-1/2″, 2-1/2″, 3″, 6″, and 6-1/2″

Llama Treat Holder Photo 2

Before you fold your piece on the score lines you will need to cut out the opening for the candy to sit in.  Die cut from the right (front) side of your paper.

Llama Treat Holder Photo 3

Flip the paper over and place Scor-tape to the top ½” (above the treat opening).

Adhere the plaid paper to all the white pieces with adhesive of choice, and attach the Llama to the white circle with double sided foam tape.

Llama Treat Holder Photo 4

Adhere the layered pieces to the large white base as shown.  The ribbon will need to be adhered before the layered piece can be attached in that section.

Llama Treat Holder Photo 5    Llama Treat Holder Photo 6

Fold and crease all the score lines, the top score line will fold to the front and all the rest will fold to the back.

Remove the backing to the tape from the back and attach it 5/8” down from the fold line.  Adhere the last remaining layered piece on top of it.

Llama Treat Holder Photo 7

Insert the candy (Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Caramel Bunnies), close and tie bow.  Make sure you tie it loose enough that the cover can slide in and out.

Llama Treat Holder Photo 8

To decorate I colored the adorable little Llama from the Tiny Easter Stamp Set and cut her out with the coordinating cut it out dies.

~Copics~
Llama:  E43/42/41/40
Aquas:  BG13/11/10
Pinks:  R32/30/00
Yellow:  Y13

I cut out a scalloped circle of white, cut out the Llama with the Tiny Easter Outline Metal Die.  I then attached the Llama to the scalloped circle with double sided foam tape.  This was attached to the front of the treat holder with Scor-tape.

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial today!

Bunny Wrist Purse

Hello crafty peeps!

Today is another sewing project from craft dies.

For my design team project for C.C. Designs I decided to make little wrist purses for my granddaughters.  This little purse features the super cute Make A Bunny die set, and is for my granddaughter Adeline.

Make A Bunny

I took a few design elements from a pattern, but adjusted the rest to what I thought would be easier for smaller children.

I ironed Heat and Bond to the back side of the quilting fabric, and then using the die the same way you would paper, I sent it through my die cutting machine.  Heat and Bond is a double sided adhesive so it worked perfectly the iron all the pieces together.  Once all the pieces were ironed on I used embroidery floss and a fine needle to stitch the pieces to the white backing using the blanket stitch.
