Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop!

This month, the theme is Last Minute Gifts/Cards to inspire you with your holiday list. We really hope that you will be enjoy all the amazing creations the Pals are sharing with you! As you hop from blog to blog, we would love for you to leave a comment. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

My Last Minute Gift idea is a small gift and Gift Card holder in one.  I give quite a lot of Gift Cards over the year.  But at the same time like to give a little something.  This is a perfect mix.

2 in 1 Gift card Box


Stampin' Up!, Brightest Glow, Boughs of Holly , Double Oval Punch, Red Rhinestones, Jackie Beers


You can see the top of the gift card peeping out of the finger notch at the top.  Here is a view of what it holds.



This sweet box holds perfectly the hand cream from Bath and Body.  My Gift Card is not a Bath and Body (I forgot to purchase one!) but you can see the one I substituted.  These little boxes go together really quickly.  The scoring and cutting of the card stock is the most time consuming.  And that is not long at all.  I made this one in less than thirty minutes total.

In case you do not recognize this sweet 3D item, it is from The Paper Pixie.  And since her videos and directions are the best!, I am going to give you the link instead of trying to explain how to make this.  It is Hand Cream & Gift Card Box.  Simply click on that highlighted name.

Stamps and Embellishments

The only stamping on this is the ‘Tis The Season from the Brightest Glow stamp set.  It is a great size with a fun font.  By using the Double Oval Punch, it become a tad taller than the box itself, but still fits perfectly.  I think the bit of added height helps it to stand out a little.  The only embellishments are the Ribbon bow and the three little Red Rhinestone Gems.


The beginning of this project, after choosing the box, was what papers would show best on a rather small scale.  This DSP is from the Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper.  There are a couple of different Poinsettia prints in this pack.  I liked this one on the White with smaller flowers.  It helps the flowers to stand out individually.  And I chose the Shaded Spruce as the green.  There are several different ones included in the leaves of the bundles.  The Shaded Spruce is the brighter one.  This sweet project is a good ones for making multiples of.  I am in the process of doing just that.  It takes very little DSP and once the scoring is complete you are almost finished!

More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team. The Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on January 11th when our theme will be Sale-A-Bration Time. The design team will showcase projects made from Sale-A-Bration items.
