Day 1 ~ Handmade Holiday Papercrafting Parade with

Hello friends~  Today is the big day for the kickoff of the Handmade Holiday Papercrafting Parade at  
As some of you may recall, I was blessed with a box of supplies from in return for creating projects using the products they sent.  My hope is that you'll find these projects inspiring and that you'll visit by clicking on the links I've included in this post.  

Let's get on with today's project:  

Secret Santa gifts are so much fun to give!  I cut the boxes using Fun Stampers Journey Gable Favor Box Die, out of 80# Neenah Solar White Cardstock.  I added images and paper from Simple Stories, Simple Vintage North Pole collection.  

This is one of my favorite lines of paper.  If you love retro or vintage Christmas images, then you'll love this paper too!  Can Santa get any jollier than that?? 

 I cut the "ho ho ho" out of black cardstock using the Basic Bold Alphabet Dies.  

 To make it easy to adhere the letters, I ran them through my Xyron Sticker Maker and topped the letters off with a generous layer of glitter using a Glitter Pen.

See the cutie little tags at the top? sent a Peppermint Christmas Sticker Book filled with hundreds of stickers!  I cut the tag out of Neenah Solar White and added these "Secret Santa" stickers.  I tied them on using some Silver Thread Twine.

You'll be happy to know that all of the items I used on today's project are currently on sale at  By clicking on the links I've included in my post, you'll be brought directly to their site and if you make a purchase with them, there's no extra cost to you.
