Welcome to InKing Royalty’s December Blog Hop! We have a fun Blog Hop theme today – Wrap it Up! The hop is filled with projects that are perfect for this time of year – everything from gift-packaging ideas to bundling up to stay warm. We are excited to share our creations with you today.  After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

Thank you for joining me in this blog hop!  My wrap it up project is the 3-D gift I made as a gift.  This is my first post on a 3-D project.  I feel like I was channeling my inner Julie DiMatteo when I made it.  HaHa!!!!!  Julie is the 3-D Queen, and a great friend.  Although this project is from another SU Demonstrator’s YouTube video, www.positivelypapercraft.co.uk

Here are a couple of pictures of the finished product.

Stampin' Up! Year of Cheer, Jackie Beers

Year of Cheer DSP, 144640

I used the same DSP as the demonstrator did in her video.  It was just perfect for what I needed.  Any of SU’s thicker DSP would be wonderful.  I changed the inner part to just Thick Whisper White card stock. I have already made a few in different colors as gifts.  They really are easy to make. I cannot wait to give them out.

I have also made templates for the top and the bottom.  I have not braved making a video tutorial yet, but this is one I would love to do.  I found a few tricks that worked for me.  I also used the 1 3/8″ circle punch instead of the Layering Circles Framelits that the other lady used.

Here are the templates I made.  Hopefully they will make sense.  If not, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Shawn de Oliveira at Shawn Stamps. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!
