Our Craft Lounge Blog Hop {Penguin Fun}

Welcome to the Penguin Fun sneak peek from Our Craft Lounge! I love the new sets that are coming out this release! The Penguin Fun set is simply adorable!

I created a simple card with the penguin set - using some fun polka dot paper! I added a few punched snowflakes, which are covered with dabs of stickles. I also added some stickles to the snowbank and the snowballs. Penguin colored with copics.

I also created a simple holiday gift. I love keeping candles around the house (I got a two pack of some nicely scented candles at Target). I simply wrapped some designer paper around the glass container, then added a strip of wide white organza ribbon. I punched the stamped sentiment out with an oval punch and layered on a piece of oval punched celery. I added some punched snowflakes (with small buttons in the center) and dazzled the snowflakes with stickles.

This is an easy 5 minute creation which is so cute to give as a hostess gift for those last minute holiday cocktail parties. Keep a few candles on hand in your craft room for those quick, easy presents.

The back has the big , beautiful bow! Fun and simple!
