Simply Creative Gift Packaging

I am continuing with projects from the Stampin’ Up! OnStage event this past weekend.  I had two friends, one is a downline of mine, coming in from Florida for the event.  As Atlanta weather goes we were having very chilly weather, especially on Thursday when they were arriving.  I found a little humorous gift for them and made a package for them.

 

 

I realize I have once again used the snowman products, but in this instance it was very appropriate.  Do you see the designer series paper theme?  It is mittens.  And that is what is wrapped in the tissue paper.  I found the little “one size fits most” pull on gloves.  I love these because I have really short fingers and they fit my fingers! LOL!!!  The added bonus is they are very inexpensive and great as little add on gifts.  Or in my case because I tend to loose at least one of them.

I used the 6 X 8 Cello Bags for the gloves.  The topper is made by using a 6 X 4 piece of Poppy Parade Card Stock and added a 5 3/4 X 1 2/3 piece of Coastal Cabana to the front and back.  That is topped by a piece of 5 1/2 X 1 1/2 piece of the Let It Snow Designer Series Paper.  It is also on the front and back.  I folded this over the top of the bag and secured it with two staples, both placed towards the center.  I used the old SU stapler that is retired.  But any small craft or desk stapler would work fine.

For the tag, I used a 2 X 5 strip of Whisper White card stock.  It is punched at the bottom with the Banner Triple Punch and at the top with the Delightful Tag Topper Punch.  I stamped a scene from the Snowman Season stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  It is highlighted with the Stampin’ Blends.  The sentiment is one of my go to themes.  It is from #Elfie stamp set.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I will have a few more different projects for you in the next couple of days.

Hello Everyone !!

I hope I still have my loyal followers here today.  I had an awesome two week vacation in France, but now I am back to share new projects with you.

The weather in France was warmer than expected and I came home to a bit cooler temperatures.  That was an unexpected pleasure.  This put me in the holiday spirits, plus realizing that Halloween is in two days!  Yikes!!!  So I covered all of the upcoming holidays in one project for you.  And it is a quick one as well.

Kraft Pillow Boxes, 147018

 

I created treat boxes for each of the upcoming holidays.  All of these were really quick.  I could have kept going on each one of the themes.  With the Designer Series Paper, Ribbon, and great seasonal stamp sets, the ideas are just endless for decorating these little boxes.

The great part of these boxes are the price.  You get 10 boxes for $5.00.  That is an awesome deal!  They are large enough to hold a variety of candies or small gifts.  These are fairly basic in the designs.  I can see the beauty in coming up with a theme and creating a basket of these to have by your door for holiday guests or to take to a gathering.

Thank you for visiting today.  I really appreciate you hanging around for my return from vacation.  The supplies I used on the boxes are all listed at the bottom of the post.

A Chocolate Gift

I have a bit of an unusual, at least for me, project for you today.  From my West Coast trip I brought a friend ,who loves Ghirardelli Chocolate, a gift.  Of course I had to make a decorative box to hold it.  This is definitely not my specialty!!  But I measured and winged it, and here are the results.

 

Treat Time, 146626

 

 

I did used retired DSP.  I wanted a thicker paper for my gift box.  There are some great new ones, I just did not have a large enough piece.  I have been really using my DSP lately!    And here is the inside of the box.

 

 

 

I used Julie DiMatteo’s favorite mini magnets as the main closure.  I did add a decorative slide off band as well.  In doing so, I fell in love with this stamp set, Treat Time !  Oh My, who would not LOVE to get a card or gift with the sentiment “It’s A Real Treat Being Friends With You”?  I think that is my new favorite sentiment.

3 X 3 Cards for Copper Tea Tin

Yesterday I focused on the Copper Tea Tin that I made as a gift for a friend, and the special card for her.  Today I am showcasing the six 3X3 cards that I placed inside the tin for her to use.  Yes, I said 6 cards, with envelopes, and there is room for more!  As I said yesterday, these tins are AMAZING !!

 

Stampin' Up!, stampinup, Jackie Beers, jackiebeers, a big thank you, big thank you, nature's poem

A Big Thank You, 147377

 

 

I stayed with the Nature’s Poem DSP from the outside of the tin.  All of the sentiments are from the A Big Thank You stamp set.  My thoughts on these little cards are as either Random Act of Kindness or as small gift inserts.  Either way, I think anyone would smile upon receiving one.

Here is a photo of the cards inside the tin.  I really was not exaggerating !! There really is room for more cards, gift card, or  maybe a small gift.

 

I hope you think these tins are as wonderful as I do.  If you have any questions, or would like to purchase some of them, please contact me.  I would love to assist you.  All of the products I used are listed at the bottom of the post.

Thank you for visiting today!  I very much appreciate it.  Be sure and check back tomorrow because it is the InKing Royalty June Blog Hop.  You would not want to miss that.  There are always amazing cards to hop along and view.

Copper Tea Tins

Today I have used the AWESOME Copper Tea Tin as the holder for some gorgeous little cards.  I will show the tin today and the main card.  Tomorrow I will show all of the 3 X 3 cards I made to go inside.

 

Stampin' Up!, Copper Tea Tins, Nature's Poem, Jackie Beers

Copper Tea Tins, 147034

 

I love little containers!  So when I saw these tins in the new catalog I was so excited.  They are a perfect size.  For today’s project, I decorated with Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper.  I believe I have used more DSP since I got my pre-order than in the last year.  This year Stampin’ Up! has outdone themselves with the gorgeous papers they have created.  But, back to the tin….. I used a 12″ strip of the DSP towrope around the tin.  I think the  cajun craze (that is the color listed on the DSP pack) leaf in the DSP matches really well with the copper color of the tin.

The sweet sentiment on the tin is from the Treat Tine stamp set.  There are some wonderful sentiments there.  I am crazy about sentiments that are special, and I love the different fonts used in this set.  Another MUST Have!

For the main card, which is actually for my friend, I CASED Julie DiMatteo’s Diamond card from her last week Facebook Live.  You can see her Friday post of it HERE      

 

A Big Thank You, 147377

 

I used Grapefruit Grove instead of Cajun Craze that is listed as the coordinating colors on the DSP.  I like it even better!  (That is what I used on the sentiment circle for the bellyband of the Copper Tin.)  The sentiment is from A Big Thank You.  It is a Must Have if you do any Thank You cards.  The sentiments are fabulous!!

I hope you will come back tomorrow to see the cards I placed inside the tin and see how many will fit!  It is an amazing little guy.  Thank you so much for visiting today!  All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

Lots To Love Guys

I have combined two awesome items from the 2018 Occasions Catalog for today.  Sadly both products are retiring.  I truly love the Lots To Love Box Framelit.  It is very versatile.  And it makes a super cute little box.  I have given it a more masculine look today and paired it with products from the True Gentleman Suite.

 

Stampin' Up!, Lots To Love Box Framelits, True Gentleman, Tailored Tag, Truly Tailored, Jackie Beers

Lots To Love Box Framelits Dies, 145653

 

I used the True Gentleman Designer Series Paper for the Box and Belly Band.  For the box, you cut two of the box shapes and adhered them together.  The belly band is a strip of coordinating DSP that measures 8 X 2 1/2.  I dry fit it and then creased it to fit snugly.  It is only for decoration so I did not have to worry about allowing room for it to be slid off of the box.

The sentiment is an adorable stamp from the set Truly Tailored.  It is punched out with the matching Tailored Tag Punch.  The punch is the only item from this project that is carrying over.  And I  am thrilled.  I do love my punches!! The blue punched shape is actually cut with my paper snips.  Because the actual punched sentiment is all straight lines, it is very easy to simple cut the background piece.  I adhered the punched piece to the Night of Navy and then simple trim around it.

I love the added texture and depth the Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon brings to the box.  I wish it was carrying over, but at least it is still currently available.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope you like the masculine version of this box.The Lots To Love Box Framelits are definitely a keeper.  All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.
