Crafter's Companion & Xyron 30 Days of Holiday Gifts

Welcome back! I've got a simple and totally cute project for our Xyron-30 Days of Holiday Gifts going on. So let's get started!

For my project, I chose a clear pillow box that I had purchased last year. I had quite a few left so I figured these would be GREAT for small teacher gifts. Very simple to make, but totally cute.


I took the Xyron High Tack Glue Dots and stuck them to the front of the pillow box. I dug out some glitter in red, green and silver and went to town. I did a couple sprinklings, shaking off in between, to be sure that the glitter covered the tacky glue dots. They're not sticky now! And they're pretty! I then took some silver sequins and filled in the spots between the glitter dots. I stuck them on with the high tack glue dots again. These really ARE awesome!! They stick so well. So keep in mind, when they're stuck, they're stuck ;)

For the tag, I used the smaller tag from the Large Tag Package from Crafter's Companion. (You MUST get these) I chose the Mega Runner from Xyron to apply my glue in a zig zag pattern for my glitter application. I chose to apply red glitter. I used the Mega Runner because it glues down in a dot pattern and I thought that would look cool behind the glitter. :) I love it. I then used my Spray & Glitter Varnish in Iridescent over the entire tag to give a really wintery look. It's hard to see in the photo, but it's there!


I stamped the circular sentiment from the Sentimentals-Jingle Bells in Staz-On Silver on white cardstock. In the opening in the center, I used the star ornament from the same Sentimentals set and stamped it in Pistachio/Memento Luxe. I diecut out the circle and used a high tack glue dot to stick on my tag. Because of the glitter spray I used, I wanted to be sure it was tacky enough to stick. DONE!

I picked a simple ribbon from my stash, tied it through the hole in the tag and done. Oh, inside the box is tasty dark chocolate sea salt popcorn. Someone will be happy!!!!
