Aren’t these Christmas stockings darling? In this picture they look almost like full-sized stockings hanging on a mantle, but truly they are only about 4″ tall and they are made of card stock! Such nice little treat holders – or gift card holders – for the holidays!
This stocking is made with Whisper White card stock and Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper in Tranquil Tide. The loop for hanging the stocking is Silver Tinsel Trim.
I think this one might be my favorite ~ made with the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper. One side of the sheet of dsp makes the stocking and the back side makes the trim! This set of dies even has a die for the darling little red ornaments on the stocking!!
And, the back of each stocking is a pillow box to hold the treats or the gift card! Isn’t that ingenious?
This is the perfect time to order these thinlits dies. You can make them in time for Christmas! You could even make one for each day of December and use them as an advent calendar, filling each pillow box with a candy!

Yesterday I told you that I would show you some other ways to use the Trim Your Stocking Thinlits Dies. Here they are, birthday pillowboxes! Aren’t they nice? I mean, truthfully, they are floral treat holders, but in my mind I’m thinking of gift cards and birthdays! 🙂
Now if you remember, these little cuties are made using dies from the Holiday Catalog, Interesting, right? This just shows you that Stampin’ Up! products are so versatile! These dies are not simply for the holidays, you will use them all year round! The pretty floral paper is the Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack. This paper comes in a 6×6 pack and is perfect for making one pillowbox!
The squiggly arrows above point out for you two additional dies in this set: the stitched heart and the little strip of hearts. I’m going to use that heart alot! There are 19 (!!!!!) dies in this set! I also highlighted for you the pretty ribbon used on this pillowbox.
Here’s what I’ve been working on this weekend…more holiday pillowboxes!! These are for a craft fair in November. For these I added some gift tags stamped with the Merry Little Labels stamp set and then punched with the coordinating Everyday Label Punch.
