Believe Stocking for last minute gifts!


You've seen the little gift card stockings I've posted earlier here, well here is the same idea only I used the Fit To Page (FTP) key on my Cricut Expression to make it as large as possible!

I cut out two stockings - one for the front (pattern paper) and one for the back side (cardstock). Then using a sewing machine, I sewed around the outside edges to create a pocket inside just like a real stocking! Then I used the FTP feature for the coordinating layer images on the stocking.

I added some of our festive Liquid Applique to the top cuff and heat set it. Then I added holly leaves from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge as well as it's coordinating layer - the berries! I scored and sanded the leaves and added our fun and easy Red Glitz Glitter Gel to the berries!

I scored the heel and toe in a checkered pattern and then lightly sanded to expose the white core for a little personality there too. Also used our Edge Distresser on the outside edges of the heel and toe. I used Liquid Glass to attach the heel and toe pieces and 3-D Foam Tape to add the cuff at the top. Then I crumpled some paper and stuffed it inside the stocking to get it to puff out! Or fill it with lots of goodies for the same effect. I added a piece of ribbon from our Designer Red Ribbon Collection to hang it - and it's done!

Wouldn't these be great at each place setting on your Christmas Dinner table? In any size! I just love my Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge! Do you have yours yet? If not, don't wait another minute!
