PTI's September Blog Hop!

Good Morning! And welcome to PapertreyInk Sept. Blog Hop
Felt and Fabric Wrap Challenge
9-25-blog-hop-challenge
Every year I make mini stocking gift card holders for the family.
This year with the help of a couple of papertreyink dies, the cuffs shine a little brighter!
The banner borders die is perfect for the fancy edging.
Cut 2 for each stocking.
Here's my pattern
Very easy when you assembly line!
Here are the finished stockings






You can use any fabric, but I find a bit stiffer linen, with a muslin lining works well.
Tags were die cut Vintage Ornaments and Tiny Tags, also from Papertrey.
Felt is Papertrey as well.
I'd be happy to answer any questions or help you in any way!
One last thing, I will be doing 30 of these this year.
My newest grandchild just turned 1! We keep adding...

  9. These are adorable, Nancy. What are the dimensions of your little stockings? I can see a whole row of these made into a garland and added to the tree or fireplace mantle. What a great idea!! I'm going to have to look at the stocking from Love Lives here to see if if could work as a die for cutting felt. Thanks for the inspiration!!
