DT Challenge: Fashion Frenzy

Hello and welcome to today’s DT Challenge!  Today’s challenge was to create a project based on fashion.  Here’s a little secret…I don’t really pay much attention to fashion so as I was decorating my holiday cookies, I thought that the most fashionable person I could think of during this holiday season was SANTA!  So I went with that.  :)  I made this cute little Santa treat and coordinating card.  The TUBE is one of the newest items in the store.  I love how versatile (and inexpensive) they are.  I dressed it up with the red glitter sheet (love that it doesn’t flake) from the Christmas Specialty Paper Pack (on sale now).  I added a piece of ivory faux suede ruffled ribbon for the trim, wrapped a scrap of black faux suede around for the belt and then added some Zva bling for the belt buckle.  I used the Monogram “o” letter but you could just place single gems if you don’t have the alphabet.  Everything is adhered with i {stick} papers, which, BTW, got a shout-out on this YouTube video recently.  How cool is that?

I repeated this for my little card (measures 3”x3”).

Anyway, I made the little hat and trimmed the bottom edge with some vintage pom-pom trim and then used one pom-pom from this ribbon.  That one is slightly wired so I was able to stick it in the tip of the hat with a glue dot.  It’s stuck to the lid of the tube with some more i {stick} papers but not until I filled the tube with some candy cane Hersey Kisses.  YUM.

I do hope you’ll stop by the rest of my team to see their projects.  They’ve worked so hard on them during this busy season and I would hate for them to go unseen…so please go visit:


Thanks for stopping by today!  The newsletter will be going out in the next day or so and you’ll want to be sure you’re signed up to get it.  You can sign up on the right side of the homepage.  A little elf told me there might be a little post-Christmas sale going on.  Hmmm…just sayin’.

I’m not sure if I’ll have another post before Christmas, so just in case, I hope you have a very Merry day!  See you soon!
