Welcome to day 2 of the 4th Annual Handmade Holidays Blog Hop! A few years ago we were looking online for handmade gift ideas and thought it would be great if there was a resource dedicated JUST to handmade gift ideas. Enter the Handmade Holidays hop! We’ve gathered over 100 of our creative blogger friends in the craft industry as well as some of our fellow product manufacturers to bring you a plethora of inspiring gift ideas you can make now to give to your friends, family, and colleagues. Pin and bookmark these ideas for this holiday season and to use throughout the year! Each day of the hop features approximately 30 gift projects and you can “hop” from one blog to another to check them all out.
My project is a fun Santa Canister
Growing up, my mom had a set of silver canisters- two tall ones for Flour and Sugar and then two smaller stacking ones for Coffee and Tea. That set was my inspiration for this die. The Canister is a versatile die because it will hold a stack of cookies, brownies or candy- the perfect container to decorate for the holidays! You can also cut the canister in half to make two stacking short ones that stack because the lid and bottom fit on any size that you decide to make!
- Big Shot die cutting machine
- extended cutting pads
- Canister die
- Jar Labels Textured Impressions
- Kitchen Labels Framelits
- velvet looking ribbon
- spray adhesive
- rhinestone buckle
- Santa’s coat trim
- – 1/4″ iCraft tape
- Coat one and a half sheets of matboard with spray adhesive. Cover with wide red velvet ribbon. Die cut Canister and one additional side side. Stamp snowflakes on the inside of the box.
- Place lines of double sided adhesive down each tab and on the tabs of the lid. Remove release paper and adhere sides together to form square shape. (If you don’t like the look of the white seams showing down the sides, you can fill in with a red marker). Fold matboard over on all score lines of the bottom of box, then insert into the base.
- Cut a length of black webbing to go around the box. Use hot glue to adhere webbing around belt loop. Wrap belt around box.
- Hot glue white fur around the top edge of the Canister lid. Pierce a hole in the top of the lid. Secure leather button to top of box.
- Emboss a scrap of metal using the Jar Labels Textured Impressions folder. Die cut matching label from the Kitchen Labels Framelits set. With a metal stamp, spell out “4U”. Add black paint over the sentiment, then wipe off. Punch a hole in the tag and tie on to cellophane bag filled with goodies.
- Give away!
