Maker Moments: This Cute Christmas House

So for some reason, I just can’t escape this adorable little die set called “Prims”. I showcased it in September and October and now I just can’t stop from making it into a Christmas house. (And now its November). I also had to include the little Perfect Matchbook die to complete the look because the holidays are just around the corner and everyone needs a box.  So here is my pretty little shot of the collection.  Nothing fancy but definitely right on trend for the 2016 season. You will need these dies to create the following projects:

Spellbinders Platinum Machine: PL-001

Prims Die Set: S2-251

Perfect Match Contour Die: SR-015,This is a steel rule die and will cut a variety of materials


The house card and box have a background of watercolor brush marks.  I think watercoloring is just the best because it’s fun, easy and best of all,  imperfect! The little details on the card are created by using a white roller pen. Don’t forget to cut the heart and door from glittered paper or glittered foam paper. I think it dresses up the card a bit.

I’m always looking for those little tiny jewelry boxes for Christmas gifts.  This match box is perfect for gift cards as well.  Choosing different materials and patterns to die-cut always adds to that personal touch.

If you work the Prims set just right, you can use the rectangular die for a tag and embellish it with a star or a heart.  I stamped the sentiments onto black paper using white ink to give it a chalkboard effect.  These are perfect to make up ahead of time for the holidays.
