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 !!

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.

 


 

It is still a great time to become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  I would love to have you join my team.  A great perk for demonstrators this time of year is getting to see the new catalog first.  Then we get to order and play with the new products a month early.  For me, that is one of the best parts of being a SU Demonstrator.  Of course, the discount helps!  If you are interested, please contact me and let’s talk.

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.

Lots To Love Box

I hope you are falling in love with all of the new products in the 2018 Occasions and Sale-A-Brations Catalogs.  I definitely have.  (If you do not have the catalogs yet, and do not have a demonstrator, please contact me and I will get catalogs in the mail to you!)  Today I am sharing one of the really unexpected favorites from the Occasions Catalog.  It is the framelits “Lots To Love” which bundles with the “Sure Do Love You” stamp set.

 

Lots To Love Box Framelits Dies, 145653

 

I love stamp sets that are quick and easy.  Framelits add a great touch to our cards by adding dimension and showcasing the stamped image.  I believe this box does the same thing.  It is probably the easiest to build of any “put it together” item SU has ever had.  All you do is cut two of the box shape and adhere them together one with the flap at the top and the other with the flap at the bottom.  Since it is equal to adhere the sides is to simply lay it flat and fold over.  Easy Peasy!!

I decided to use another popular Sale-A-Bration set to dress up my little gift box.  It is the “Lots of Lavender” stamp set.  I stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with the Stampin’ Blends.  I then added a few touches of the Chalk Pen to highlight a couple of the flowers.

For the finishing touch, I added the Night of Navy Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon.  I also used the 1/2″ Circle Punch to make a little tab at the top.  This just makes it a little easier to get the box open.  You would not want to tear the DSP trying to get the box open!

To finish off the box, and I should mention to do this as you are putting the box together!!!!  I added a Night of Navy circle to the inside of the flap.  It is the 2nd largest circle in the Layering Circles Framelits.  And it merely gives a little more finished look to the inside flap , as well as making it a little sturdier.

In case you were wondering this box is pretty big.  It will hold full size candy bars like a Hershey or a Kit Kat. And I know it could be adjusted to make it “thicker” so that it would hold the test tubes SU had in the Holiday Catalog.

 

Thank you for visiting with me today!  I hope you enjoyed this project.  It really is a very versatile box that is super easy to build.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.  And if you do not currently have a demonstrator I would love to help you.

Great Gift Box

Stampin’ Up! makes it so easy to give small gifts.  We usually make boxes from the beautiful card stock or designer series paper.  A great carryover from the Holiday Catalog are the little pizza boxes.  Well there is now a new one to add to your “easy as can be” gift giving.  The Occasions Catalog has an awesome Silver Mini Gable Box.

Silver Mini Gable Boxes, 145568

 

I know for a fact that this little box will hold a Lot of Chocolate!!  I gave one as a hostess gift over the holidays, and even with some of the shredded paper in the bottom, I fit six of the square chocolate treats.  The best part is that they take very little decoration.

For today’s box I used the Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper that is a Sale-A-Bration option. The paper coordinates with the Bubble Over Bundle in the Occasions Catalog.  I can see this box being a great option for bridal and baby showers, or wedding receptions.

My card stock color choices came directly from the DSP, as usual.  Why vary when SU has matched everything for us.

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

The measurement for wrapping the paper around the box is simple.  The sides are 2 1/2″ X a little over 12″.  Since the DSP is 12 X 12, you will have a gap between the ends as it takes a little more to go around the outside of 12″.  All you have to do is center the gap on the front of the box and then cover it with your decoration/sentiment.  Quick and easy!!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I hope you will give this cute box a try for some spring events.  The supplies I used today are listed at the bottom of the post.
