Today's Craft - Stocking Stuffers

Stocking stuffers can be as simple or as involved as you want to make them! In today's video, Ashley shares a multipurpose project that features an ingenious (but easy!) technique for packaging chocolate bars, a bookmark and sleeve, and a gift card pocket all-in-one! You could use the same packaging technique for other similarly shaped treats — adjust the size of your base piece and positioning of the scoring to accommodate the items you're sharing! A common color scheme pulled for the patterned paper she chose for her bookmark ensures the entire look is cohesive. Beautiful!

What a lovely way to present a gift card and an extra little gift of the bookmark. Perfect to put in a stocking in a way that it won’t get lost in the other goodies, and when the recipient uses the bookmark they will be reminded of the gift card. Win win!

Cute present. Too fancy to be a stocking stuffer, but definitely a fun gift.

Golda Peterson October 18, 2021

What a cute idea! There are so many possibilities here.

Kimberly Hopper October 17, 2021

I don’t normally make anything for stocking stuffers but I love this idea! It’s a beautiful project!

Amanda Wilcox October 17, 2021

A lovely combination of gifts and techniques. Great for any time of year! The llamas are festive and fun. Saved this for directions , thanks for sharing.

I love all kind of boxes: this one is really simple to make.

Love the ideas behind this! I am going to use it year around for all occasions. Thank you 😊

What a clever idea to add a bookmark to your chocolate slider. I like the idea of adding a gift card holder, too, although I might not do both on the same slider. Adding the gift card holder makes a sweet (pun intended) and unique presentation for a gift card. Thanks for sharing and for the great how to video!

Super cute project! I love all the options you showed and how well explained they all were. I look forward to trying some of that bacon chocolate :)
