Tutorial: Christmas Party Decorations

Just in time for the parties this week, Lori made these adorable Christmas decorations & you won't believe what she used & how easy they were!

Step 1: She started by gathering the following supplies:

Sentimentals Family & Friends Stamp Set
Die'sire Classiques Cupcake Insert Die
Versamark Ink Pad
Ranger Snowflake Tinsel Embossing Powder
Paper Hole Punchers
Bakers Twine
Colored Cardstock
Heat Embossing Tool
Die-cutting Machine

Step 1: Using the Die'sire Cupcake Insert on any of the Cupcake Insert/Topper Dies, cut several of the shapes of colored cardstock.

Step 2: Stamp sentiment with VersaMark ink.

Step 3: Cover with embossing powder. Tap off excess.

Step 4: Melt embossing powder with heat tool. 

Step 5: Punch holes on both ends as shown.  NOTE: The size of hole puncher needed will depend on the size of straws, candy canes etc. 

Step 6: Adhere bows and sequins.

To create a banner, stamp the images in the other direction and simply string twine through one hole to another.
