Christmas Gift Giving using Stampin' Up! Under the Tree DSP with Cheerful Tags and Holiday Home Stamps

Hopefully you are all done, sitting down and relaxing by now?? All I have left to do is wrap ribbon around my table presents but I'm taking a quick break to pop on here and share one more Christmas project with you.
So, these little pencil and eraser holders are small gifts I made as Christmas gifts using some of the fabulous Under the Tree DSP, I have used tons of this DSP this year! And it's just prefect for this type of  project as it's so heavy weight. 
To make these holders I cut a 12"x12" piece of paper at 2" then score at 4" but, I recommend for you to score first then cut!!! ;-)
 I used the scallop tag topper punch on each end adding some of this chevron ribbon to the top (this ribbon is in this weeks weekly deals btw ;-))
Then I sewed up each side to secure, I think that's the most sewing I've done all year ;-)
 I used more of the DSP for the front tag. I punched it out using the 2+3/8" scallop circle then stamped, adding some lovely gold sequins with the mini stapler.
 My Top Tip for using a string of sequins like this is to add a drop of Crystal Effects at the rear, so they don't unravel and all fall off! 
 I added a little eraser to each pencil which I tied Bakers Twine around and then (separately) threaded another piece of twine through to tie it to the ribbon. Yes, I know, I thought I could do it in one piece but it proved too difficult to make it sit correctly! Yes, I did question my creative genius *ahem* after making 24 of these!! Ha ha!! I also added a little glue dot to the rear to make her sit just so. OCD much?

and a few together

I did really enjoy making these (once I finished tying those little erasers to them!) and I hope all those who received one liked them too :-)
I think I have a couple more Christmas cards to show you after the big day and then I'll be onto NEW products (once I get a chance to play, of course) 
So, it's just left to wish you a very Happy Christmas with much love from me to you and yours!
Merry Christmas!!
