Christmas Stocking Stuffer Treat w/Video Tutorial

I am so excited to share with you my latest project, a Christmas Stocking Stuffer Treat, made using the October Stamp of the Month & the Cricut Artiste Collection.

The treats inside are decorated peppermint patties. I used the Cricut Artiste Collection to cut out the stamped images & layers for the peppermint patties & the gift tag…makes this project fast & simple! Then just insert the decorated peppermint patties inside a Wilton Pretzel Bag and tie the bag closed with some Baker’s Twine and the decorated gift tag.

I have created my 1st video tutorial to share with you how I made this fun little treat!

  5. Pamela…. love your video… found you on Pinterest… about to sign up to be a consultant ;) Mongo excited. How do you make your vid look so professional! LOVE IT and subscribing to your blog now :) Kathi

    • Thank you Kathi for your sweet comments! Not sure they are that professional, but I did recently invest in a camera with HD video, a tripod & some bright white studio lighting. I am using iMovie on my MacBook Pro to do my editing. That combination of things helps a lot. I am confident you will LOVE being a CTMH Consultant as I have for almost 14 years now! =)
