The Petaloo, Xyron, and Graphic 45 Blog Hop: Holiday Home Decor Day 4
Maggi creates a perfect utensil holder that is perfect for your holiday party or for a handmade gift!
"What a treat to blog hop with Petaloo and Xyron! I took a 6 pack box and altered it to use for a utensil holder. Every year I host Christmas at my house and on Christmas Eve we do a big buffet of really yummy junk food and this 6 pack box makes a perfect container to hold the eating utensils and napkins. " ~Maggi
Petaloo shared with us the most gorgeous collection of flowers that are perfect for all your holiday creations. I used a little bit of everything they sent on my project so you could see how pretty all these blooms are! You might not think of using a berry pick with Christmas projects, but I think it looks so pretty nestled in there with the poinsettias. The glittered snowflakes and star picks just add to the overall festive feel of my project.
I used the Xyron Creative Station Lite to adhere the doilies. The Creative Station Lite applies adhesive to anything up to 5" wide and 1/8" thick. It works so well with doilies as they have so many intricate cuts that are difficult to glue. You just run your doily through the machine (no batteries or electricity required) and the adhesive bonds perfectly to the paper so you can easily adhere it to your project, without any mess, no oozing glue, I love that! Since it will take materials up to 1/8" thick, I will definitely be using it to attach chipboard pieces. I've always had a hard time gluing those detail chippies that have lots of tiny little cut outs, the Creative Station will be the perfect tool to add adhesive to these.
The idea for this project was born last year when my bff told me how much she liked champagne but since she lives alone, it didn't make much sense for her to buy bottles of champagne since it doesn't keep after opening. Well, I thought to myself, I will get her some champagne splits, but then I needed a fun way to gift it. Ah ha I thought, upon spying a 6 pack, yep, that would be really cute filled with champagne splits.
She loved it and now she uses it to hold dog toys for her "grand dog" that occasionally visits. Honest, that is what she told me!

Sandy creates a beautiful decoration for her mantelpiece! Love this idea!
"I have a Santa Claus collection that I display every Christmas on my mantle. Some are new and some are very vintage and I love them all. When I saw the fabulous Graphic 45 St Nicholas collection, I knew I wanted to create a decorative piece to add to my mantel for this holiday season. I decided to create a tag box to hold tags for gifts and for pretty tags received on gifts plus a tiny photo album. The ATC kit by My Creative Spirit that we received in our first designer supply box was perfect! I also used Xyron adhesives and some beautiful Petaloo flowers and clusters to really make this an heirloom for my Santa collection. Happy Crafting!" ~ Sandy
Follow the instructions on the Petaloo cluster packages and “take apart” the clusters. Combine different ones together like the pine cones & berries , the snowflakes and the poinsettias. The Xyron Sticker Maker made it so easy to turn paper fussy cut elements into stickers and easily add them to the mini album inside the tag box. The Xyron Tape Runner is a great adhesive to use to mat the box with the patterned paper as well as cover all the tags you will make for the holidays.
