Socks & Dots!

What a strange title for this post, isn't it? Well, the title explains it all!! There is a box of Dots and around that box is a sock! I got these adorable snowflake socks at Target's Dollar Spot. I put the box of theater size Dots in one of the socks and then I slid the other sock inside the first sock so they are together. Then I pinned the toe part to the back of the box. I thought it was a fun way to give boxed candy as a stocking stuffer this Christmas!

I wanted to dress up the stocking just a bit more so I got out some punches and punched 6 circles per body part! I used a 1-3/4" punch on the bottom, a 1-1/4" punch for the center and a 1" punch for the head. The hat was made by taking a strip of black card stock, scoring it and forming a hollow back box. I cut a 1-1/4" black circle and cut that in half. I taped the top part of the hat to it. Inside the hollow part I added several pieces of Pop Up glue dots and stuck it to the stocking. The body parts were stuck on with double sided tape. I wanted to affix the snowman with something that is removable but yet won't ruin the socks. Oh, I almost forgot the arms. They are made using one of my Sizzix dies. I'll be sharing what I make with that die with you later in the week.

These are very fun and quick to make too. After you punch out the circles you just fold them in half and glue them in place on a single circle. Isn't this a fun way to dress up the front of a gift. This would work well too on a wrapped gift. You know, one done with regular wrapping paper and not socks!!! But not as cute!!! LOL

You can also make your own box to fit inside the sock and add your own special gift instead of candy.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
