Sizzix Christmas Magic

Today I'm sharing some of my very favorite holiday posts using Tim Holtz Sizzix Alterations dies! The first two (in my opinion) are some of the very best ideas ever to be posted on this blog. Both posts were created by my friend Debbie Crouse.  You will be able to tell what a talent she has for the details! Be sure to click on the name of each post to go to the original tutorial for each project. Current links to the dies used can be found at the bottom of this post.
These chalkboard labels + brown mailing paper makes for the most wonderful Christmas packages.  Who would know they started with a just simple Sizzix die cut?
notice the gold eyelet detail?
Dies used to make labels for both "Let the Wrapping Begin" and Wrapping it up" posts

Another of my favorite posts... every time I see this photo I think, I want a gift wrapped like that!
Wrapping It up

This post answered questions about one of my favorite dies from the 2015 release, 
the Feathered Wings.
How to put them together?
Do I have to use every layer?
How do I color them?
 One of my favorite Christmas Configurations Boxes. 
The box size (5.5 x 5.5") has been discontinued, but I am sure a substitute could be found since the box itself is painted silver and covered with Distress Glitter.
This project also uses the Globe die to make a fun tag. The post also shows a quick way to color beads or Baubles with Alcohol ink.
And last but not least, stamped tags that have been cut using the Labels die.  This was a fun one to many options combining Stampers Anonymous stamps and Sizzix dies.
 Hope you are inspired to create some great things for the holidays using Sizzix dies!  
I know a look into the past has inspired me! 
Carry on!
