CANDLE
SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • DCWV™ items:
    12"x12" The Mrs. Claus’s Kitchen Stack® cardstock or other DCWV Christmas cardstock of choice
    Sticker embellishment pack
  • Candle
  • Coordinating ribbon
  • Paper trimmer or scissors
  • Glue Dots®

DIRECTIONS:
1. Select candle in color and size of choice.
2. From a coordinating 12"x12" sheet of cardstock, cut a 3½"x12" strip. Wrap strip around center of candle and adhere with Glue Dots®; the paper will overlap.
3. Adhere 2 ribbon stickers around the center of the paper strip, leaving a space between the stickers for actual ribbon.
4. Tie a ribbon between the stickers.

POINSETTIA
SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • DCWV™ 12"x12" The Merry Christmas Stack® cardstock other DCWV Christmas cardstock of choice
  • Coordinating beads
  • Floral wire
  • Monofilament string
  • Hot glue gun & glue sticks
  • Pencil
  • Scoring tool
  • Piece of scrap paper
  • Scissors

DIRECTIONS:
1. From the stack, choose 3 coordinating red prints and 2 coordinating green prints.
2. Create leaf template by freehand drawing a leaf on scrap paper. Cut out.
3. Trace pattern onto the back of cardstock, making 7 red and 3 green leaves. Cut these out.
4. Beginning with the first leaf, turn it over and make a score line down the middle. Turn the leaf back over and use the pencil to roll back the edges of the leaf. Continue to bend and score until the paper takes on a life-like dimension. Repeat for every leaf.
5. Once this is done, separate the leaves by print and color. Hot glue the leaves together by taking one leaf from each pile and gluing it to the floral wire. When doing this, leave only the smallest portion of wire visible in the center of the leaves.
6. Once the wire is covered with leaves (approx. 2), continue gluing the leaves together, this time to the bottom of the previous leaves. *Tip: try to glue leaves directly opposite of each other so poinsettia is balanced.
7. Finish the flower by adding green leaves to the outside and a grouping of beads to the center.
8. Glue beads directly to the center of the flower, or string them on monofilament string, tie off the ends, and glue the grouping in the center.

MONOGRAM LETTER
SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • DCWV™ 12"x12" cardstock:
    The Mrs. Claus’s Kitchen Stack®
    The Merry Christmas Stack® or other DCWV Christmas cardstock of choice
  • 12" monogram letter
  • Decoupage glue
  • Foam brush
  • Paper trimmer or scissors
  • Acrylic paint

DIRECTIONS:
1. Paint the “outside" of the letter, sides and back.
2. Select 6-8 coordinating prints in the color scheme of choice.
3. Cut papers into assorted sizes and shapes and then stack them in piles separated by print.
4. Apply a coat of decoupage glue onto letter, adhere paper on top of the glue, and then, after pressing the paper firmly into the glue, apply another generous top coat of glue. If there are any bubbles, use foam brush to push to the outside edge.
5. Repeat until entire letter is covered.
6. To finish apply one final coat of glue over entire letter. Let dry.

GIFT BOXES
SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • DCWV™ 12"x12" The Merry Christmas Stack® cardstock
  • 2 round paper mache boxes
  • Large circle templates
  • Jewels and gems, preferably self-adhesive
  • Coordinating ribbon and beads
  • Monofilament string
  • Papercrafting adhesive, including Glue Dots®
  • Paper trimmer
  • Scissors
  • Pencil

DIRECTIONS:
1. Select 3 coordinating prints for each box. From the first print, cut a strip to wrap around the side of the box, leaving 1" at top and bottom of box uncovered. It may be necessary to use 2 strips of cardstock, depending on the width of the box. Adhere strip directly to the box. Repeat for the remaining box.
2. From the second printed paper, trace a circle to cover the top of the box. Use a household item as a circle template. Cut this out and adhere to the center of the box. Repeat for the remaining box.
3. With remaining piece of printed cardstock, cut an assortment of strips to use for the bow on top of the box; these strips can range in size from 1/2"x12" to 1"x12". Approximately 5 strips are needed to complete the bow. Take the first strip and apply a Glue Dot to the bottom of each end. Fold the ends into the middle so that the print is facing out and press the Glue Dots® into place. Repeat for the remaining strips. Lay two of the bow pieces into an “X" shape. Adhere them together where the two middle sections cross. Add additional pieces 1 at a time by adhering them perpendicular to the last piece. Adhere the bow onto the box. Repeat for each box.
4. Embellish the box by adding a tag, adding gems to the bow, or ribbon and beads to the sides of the boxes.

PLACE MAT AND PLACE CARDS
SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • DCWV™ products:
    12"x12" cardstock: The Mrs. Claus’s Kitchen Stack®, The Christmas & Winter Combo Cardstock Stack®
    Sticker embellishment pack
    Christmas Box of Cards
  • Decorative 2" circle punch
  • Small hole punch or papercrafting punch
  • 5/8" coordinating ribbon for the place mat
  • Two or three 3/8" coordinating ribbons for the place cards
  • Paper trimmer
  • Scissors
  • Papercrafting adhesive, including adhesive foam squares
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Ink pad (optional)

DIRECTIONS:
Place mat
1. Select 2 coordinating prints from The Mrs. Claus’s Kitchen Stack®, one for the side and one for the center of the place mat. Select a coordinating solid from The Christmas & Winter Combo Cardstock Stack® to complete the place mat.
2. Take the solid cardstock sheet and cut it down to 9"x12", and keep the first print to be used at its original size. Cut down the remaining print to 11"x11".
3. Take the solid cardstock sheet, and lay it on work surface with one of the 12" sides at the top. Measure in 1½" from the top, making small tick marks in a few places across the sheet. These are guides marking the spots where later the holes will be punched for the ribbon. Now, lay the ruler down parallel to the 12" side, lining it up underneath the tick marks just made. Measuring from the left side of sheet, make marks at the following points: 2", 3", 5", 7", 10", and 11". Using paper punch, punch holes at each of these points. Next, move ruler so that it lays perpendicular between the 10" and 11" holes. Make 2 marks here, approximately 3/4" apart, and punch each hole with paper punch. This will create 4 holes total in a diamond shape; these two extra holes are to tie the bow.
4. To thread 5/8" ribbon on the place mat, begin on the back side by gluing one end down. Then go around the top with ribbon and loosely thread the ribbon down and back up the holes you just made, all with the exception of the holes meant for the bow. When the other side is reached, finish by gluing the end to the back side of the cardstock. Take another piece of 5/8" ribbon and thread it through the remaining 2 holes. Tie a bow.
5. Adhere the solid and the 12"x12" print together so that the ribbon on the solid sheet will run vertically down the left side of the place mat. Overlap the connecting edges of the sheets by at least 1" to apply the glue.
6. Adhere the remaining print to the center of the place mat.
7. Finish off the place mat by using a decorative punch in the printed corner, or by adding any stickers or other embellishments.

Place card
1. Select cards from the Christmas Box of Cards to create place cards. Cut out any sections of paper—printed or solid—to embellish the front of the cards. Adhere these on with foam squares.
2. Finish off the cards by adding the desired name and any remaining embellishments such as ribbon or stickers.
