A Kiss & A Gift

Hi!  Last night I held my annual Gift class where attendees made 4 gifts for the upcoming holidays.  This was one of the favorites from the class:

SU! Oh, What Fun!

Is this not just the sweetest?  Thanks to Dawn Griffin for her video on how to make these.

For my version, I used Very Vanilla for my base and the snowflake sheet from This Christmas Designer Series Paper pack.  I used the Classic Label punch to create my window.  The sentiment is from the Oh, What Fun! stamp set.  A little Real Red ribbon, and there you go.

Did you notice the little notch in top?  You can slide a Gift Card into the opening!

SU! Oh, What Fun!

These are pretty easy to make, too!  I’ll be making more as I think these are perfect for bus drivers, teachers, the mail man and of course the UPS person who delivers my Stampin’ Up! goodies!

I hope you’ll give these cute boxes a try!

Thanks for stopping by!

Holly Box

Hi!  How are you today?  I have been working on some packaging for Christmas gifts and made this box.

SU! Oh What Fun, Holly Berry Happiness

This box is about 4x4x2 in size when finished and would hold note cards, tea lights, chocolates, tags, a pair of socks, jewelry and all sorts of items.

Here are the directions for the box:

Base: 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 Card Stock

  1. Score at 2 1/16″ on all 4 sides
  2. Snip the score lines on two opposite sides to create tabs
  3. Fold on all score lines using Bone Folder.
  4. Use Tear & Tape on the tabs and assemble the base.

Lid: 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 Designer Series Paper

  1. Score at 1″ on all 4 sides
  2. Snip the score lines on two opposite sides to create tabs.
  3. Fold on all score lines using Bone Folder.
  4. Use Tear & Tape on the tabs and assemble the lid

Belly band: 3/4″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper

  1. Wrap belly band around the box so the two ends are on the top
  2. Place Tear & Tape on the ends that are facing up
  3. Adhere a 3″ Scallop Circle over the two ends
  4. Decorate as desired

I decorated my Belly Band with a sentiment from the Oh What Fun stamp set and the Holly Berry Happiness bundle.  These are pretty quick and easy – I hope you’ll give it a try.

Golden Snowflakes

Hi! How are you today?  I hope all is going well for you!

Today I have one of the boxes we made at last Saturday’s Boxes, Bags, and Tags class.  This elegant hexagon box:

SU! Flurry of Wishes

Thanks to Lynn Ellis of Stamp With Peg for her photo tutorial.

I used the Flurry of Wishes stamp set – and embossed the snowflake with Gold Embossing Powder.  The lid was made using the specialty sheet from the Pop of Pink Designer Series Paper pack.

Here is a picture of the top of the box:

SU! Flurry of Wishes

Stamp a snowflake in Crumb Cake ink, then stamp the sentiment in Basic Black Archival ink.

A few tips on assembly:

  1. Make the bottom part of the box first
  2. Once you have attached the side tab for the top, put the lid on the bottom of the box to form the top – easier to get the shape you need and to make sure the lid fits.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.  These are perfect for holding an ornament or some treats for your holiday gift giving.
