Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop...Foil, Foil, Foil

Blog hop header

Welcome to another fun Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop!  This month it is all about foil!  We are fortunate to have so many foil options in the Stampin' Up! Annual catalog and Holiday catalog.   


I am on a quest to find  healthy options to fill the test tubes.  I found some gorgeous bath salts at my local grocery store and I loved how wintery and jewel like they were.   I knew they would be perfect for a Christmas test tube project.  


The first foil item I used was some of the Year of Cheer Specialty Washi tape.  I love this set of washi.  It is so pretty and perfect for holiday projects.   I also used the silver trim from the Mini Tinsel Trim Combo pack.  Love the sparkle the tinsel trim adds .  


The test tube holder is made using the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper.  If you like foil, you will love this pack of paper.  This pack of paper features classic foil designs in champagne, copper, gold , and silver.  It is so pretty.  I also used the snowflakes from the Seasonal Layers thinlit cut out in silver foil.  The snowflakes are dressed up even more with clear faceted gems.  This is one sparkly little gift.

I learned how to make this test tube holder from Laurie who is on my team.  She made an adorable one for Halloween.  

Here's what you will need to make the holder;

Silver Foil:  1-3/4" x 5", 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" (snowflakes)

Year of Cheer DSP:1-1/2' x 5-7/8"  scored at 1-1/2", 2-1/2", 4", 5"

Use a 3/4" punch in the center of the 2nd section of the Year of Cheer DSP (the 1-1/2" section is the top of the holder).  Punch a circle in the 4th section.  It is best if this second circle is a little off centered.  This will help keep the test tube from slipping.  Attach the first section and the last section (Year of Cheer DSP) to the silver foil piece.  Insert the test tube and decorate with the snowflakes.  

This make a super quick and easy little gift or party favor.  It will be so appreciated since the gift includes some lovely bath salts, perfect for relaxing after a long day.

Now it is time to hop along to see what Laura has created for you.

Love your project, Sharon! It was so much fun to meet you at CentreStage and get to chat with you over the meal. Such a happy coincidence! I've ordered more test tubes just to make this! Thanks!
