A few weeks ago we had you vote on images for this past Friday's release. The top three winners of the online image poll were a scrapbook page, a luminary, and a holiday gift item. We hope you enjoyed the layout page and luminary. These little candy cane mice were added as a holiday gift item.

Vinyl Christmas Tree Advent Calendar Gingerbread House

Take a Second Look: the ...

The ornaments on the Christmas Tree Advent Calendar (released last Friday) are so amazing that I thought they were worth a second look.  Even if you do not follow the Advent tradition you will want to make the ornaments; they are truly mini works of art. Use them as they are or enlarge them. Either way they will be the perfect compliment to a holiday tag, card or gift. It won't take long for you to come up with ways to make them uniquely your own:

Visions of Sugarplums Christmas Baking ...

In a few short weeks Christmas baking will be in full swing. If you have the bug for holiday baking just a bit early, you can start by making paper cookies. These cookies don't need to be made from scratch, we've done all the work for you in our Visions of Sugarplums Collection. This collection is perfect for cards and tags for your holiday goodies and can be used after the holidays to scrapbook your Christmas memories.

Vinyl Christmas Tree Advent Calendar

Christmas Tree Advent Calendar

Thanksgiving is still a week away, but today we put up our Christmas Tree at the Pazzles Office. It's the perfect kind of tree, no falling needles and no need to water it, because it's a vinyl wall tree! We are thrilled to introduce you to our Christmas Tree Advent Calendar. It may seem a little early for a Christmas Tree, but we wanted you to have plenty of time to get this project completed before December 1st. This advent calendar is the perfect project for a weekend of crafting.

Winter Tree Waterfall Card

Just pull on the tab of this winter tree waterfall card and watch the card transform in front of your eyes! Assembly instructions included.

Ruffled Christmas Trees

Christmas is less than a week away. The kids are out of school and if you are a mom, you are trying to find ways to contain their enthusiasm! I used to love to make Christmas crafts with my children. Few of them have survived the years but the memories live on. This week's Tricky Tuesday is a fun ruffled Christmas tree that the kids can help make.


I took a hike this past week through our Mountains in Cascade, Idaho. I was on a quest to find pinecones that the chipmunks hadn’t scavenged yet for winter. I thought they would make a nice center piece on the table. When I found a nice little pile of them under the tree and started putting them in my bag I thought hey, I could make these out of paper instead!

Paper Bows

Wrapping a gift in beautiful paper and bows is half the fun of gift giving. Every year I pick just the right wrapping paper to fit my theme. Well, at least that is the theory. I like to have a different wrapping paper for each of the grandkids but now that there are 11 of them it is impossible. Now I have a different paper for each family, that way it is less confusing when it comes to passing the gifts out on Christmas Day.

Sleigh Box

This cute Sleigh Box was inspired by the Christmas Villages that I see in many different stores. I have always loved the scenes in the winter movies of the sleighs dashing through the snow. The shape of the sleigh is especially appealing to me

Piece of Pie Box

I love baking goodies to give as gifts at the holidays. I usually make cookies, candies, jar mixes and jams as they are easy to wrap in fun little packages. Recently, my mom who is widowed, remarked that she loves homemade pie but cannot possibly eat an entire pie by herself. She was thrilled at our Thanksgiving dinner that she would be able to take a piece of pie home with her. I decided to make a box that could be used to gift a person with their own personal piece of pie. I also added a slide out tray lined with freezer paper.

Stacked Christmas Tree Box

This Christmas Tree Box is double the fun because it not only holds a special gift or treat but is an adorable decoration too! Imagine several of these trees in varying sizes tucked in among the greenery. The stacked layers form a sturdy box that can hold a gift or candy treat.

Pyramid Box

A simple and elegant box that is exceptionally easy to make and large enough to hold mini candies. Great for favors at a wedding, shower, or party!

Elegant Curved Box

I love boxes with unusual shapes. I also love to use sparkle and shine in my projects at Christmas time. This elegant curved box is the perfect combination of both. I cut it in a glitter embossed cardstock and added silver shimmer accents. The box also has a velcro closure under the snowflake medallion. There will be no doubt that this box holds a very special gift inside.

Scallop Christmas Tree

I am not a baker, but when we decided to make gift bags and boxes this year for the holidays I quickly went home to retrieve some cookbooks from my shelf. I was inspired to create some scrumptious cookies and give away to my friendly neighbors as gifts this Christmas. I thought this box would be a fun way to distribute my holiday baked goods. I chose a fun paper that was nontraditional for Christmas, pink!

Fold Over Box

Here we are already on day 4 of the 12 boxes of Christmas! If you haven't already make sure to check out days 1-3 of our boxes; you really don't want to miss them! December seems to go by so quickly and no matter how much planning and preparing we do, there always seems to be a gift or two that you really need in a hurry! That's why this box is so perfect, it is a very simple box and so fast! It literally takes one sheet of paper and some ribbon. It would be great to hold a pair of socks, a handkerchief, gloves or anything that just needs a quick wrap.

Santa Bag Chapstick Holder

I was really excited to create this project for my daughter for Christmas. This is a wonderful way to have your kids create a simple project and give away as a very inexpensive gift to friends. Let’s face it, gift giving is expensive! I’m constantly looking for ways to cut corners on my spending for my holiday shopping and that made this little project was a sure bet!

Decorative Gift Basket

For several years we have celebrated the Christmas season with you by doing a series of 12 projects based on a theme. Two years ago we did the 12 Tags of Christmas and last year we did the 12 Ornaments of Christmas. Make sure to check out those projects because they are still just as awesome as the day they were posted! This year we really wanted to "wow" you with our 12 days of Christmas project series. After much debate we settled on doing the 12 BOXES of Christmas. We know how much you love dimensionals and we also know that they can be pretty intimidating to make. So let us help you out this season with 12 boxes that will leave your guests and recipients "ooing" and "awwing" all the way in to next year!

Frosty Window Card

Have you ever walked by a home on a frosty evening and caught a glimpse through the window? The Christmas tree sparkles with lights; maybe there are candles on the sill and a wreath hanging in the window. This simple card evokes that same cozy feeling for me. Christmas is the season of giving and for those of us who craft, our thoughts often turn to making cards. What better way to express our personality and individuality than in a custom made Christmas card. The truth be known, for many of us, Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without handmade cards.

Warm Thoughts Pocket Card

This Warm Thoughts card has a clever pocket for a packet of hot cocoa or apple cider mix. It’s the perfect antidote for the winter blahs.

Santa and Moose Candy Boxes

This moose and Santa make an adorable pair of boxes that sit upright for display and open to reveal a box for goodies or potpourri!

Gingerbread House

I really can't imagine who wouldn't love the idea of a house built of candy. Real gingerbread houses always seem to be one of those things that I want to do every Christmas and yet every Christmas I run out of time to do it. So when I saw Chris's awesome gingerbread house I just knew I had to make my own.

Gingerbread Gift Box

Does your house have the smells of Christmas? Gingerbread, spice tea, rum balls and sugar cookies are some of my favorite holiday scents.This house shaped box is the perfect holder for some of those yummy Christmas goodies. Add to the fun by hiding some cute photos of the kids or special messages to the recipient behind the windows.

Tea Light Candle Holders

Today’s ornament for Pazzles’ 12 Ornaments of Christmas was the inspiration for the beautiful candle holders in this Tricky Tuesday lesson. The candle holders can be made in any size just by changing the dimensions of the circles. Since glass votive and tea light holders don’t come in a standard size I have created a video tutorial to show you how to adjust the opening to fit any holder. I will also be featuring the measuring tool and some of the justification tools. Even if you are an experienced ‘Pazzle Person’ I’m betting that you will be surprised at my trick for making the holder opening the same depth when creating holders of successively smaller dimensions.

12 Ornaments of Christmas

To say that I love Christmas would be a gross understatement. I love everything about it: the tree, Christmas lights, the music, the food, the time with family, the cards, the gifts...I could go on and on! Last year in the spirit of the holiday we did the 12 Tags of Christmas. Since many of you joined after that time I'm guessing you may not have seen those tags so make sure to check those out. This year we are doing the 12 ornaments of Christmas!
