Directions

Step 1:

Fold in half lenghtwise. Place on the Holiday Stocking die just below the cutting line so the top (where your fold is) won’t be cut. Run through the Big Shot.

Step 6:

Using the Snow Flurry Bigz die, run a piece of Champagne Glimmer paper through the Big Shot. Insert an Antique brad in the middle. Add a Very Vanilla Seam binding ribbon at the back of the snowflake and through the brad.  Attach the brad to the top of the cuff.  Make a little tag with a 1″ by 2-1/4″ in Very Vanilla card stock. Stamp “Merry Christmas” and write “To: and From:” in Crumb Cake ink. Glue in place.
