12 WEEKS OF CHRISTMAS – WEEK 8 – PILLOW BOX CHRISTMAS!

Week 8 today for our 12 Weeks of Christmas series.  Are you enjoying these?  I would love to hear what you think.  I hope they are inspiring you. 🙂

Today’s project is a gift box.  The Kraft Pillow Boxes make really quick gift packaging.  They are large enough to add a gift card and even throw in a few chocolates.

For this one I have use the Snow is Glistening Stamp set and the Snowfall Thinlits.  Not much longer to get these products if you want them.

I made a wrap for the Pillow Box using the Under The Mistletoe Designer Series Paper.  Then added a strip of Old Olive cardstock around it.  TIP: Assemble the Pillow Box before you adhere the paper so you have the right dimensions with it being expanded.  The larger snowflake is cut with the White Velvet Paper, then a snowflake is stamped in Real Red on to Red card and cut with one of the snowflake Thinlits.  A tiny snowflake is cut from the Copper Foil.  I added a small bow from the Linen Thread. I just realised I edited this photo upside down as the bow doesn’t sit the right way.  Oops! Oh well! That’s OK right. 😉

Simple but very easy to do.  You can dress up any treat with these.

You can grab these Kraft Pillow Boxes in my store now -> HERE.  Unfortunately they are not one of the discounted items for the Extravaganza but they are still great value at $8.75 for 10 boxes.

The Under The Mistletoe DSP is one of the papers at 10% off today and tomorrow for Extravaganza.  Grab your pack at $17.32 in my store -> HERE. I have used this paper a lot this Christmas. Make sure you grab some for your Christmas creating.

Thanks for stopping by today,

Jenny

Online Extravaganza is on now.  Check all the reduced papers and embellishments HERE but this ends on the 24th.

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #46 – CHECKING OUT MY ONSTAGE SWAPS!

Something different for you for Wednesday’s WOW! today for #46.  Since I have just returned from Onstage in Melbourne I thought you might like to see the swaps I received.  I could show you photos – and I will but I have a video for you as sometimes you can see them a little better and especially see what the 3D ones are actually like.

So here is the video below.  Further down I have the still photos for you if you want to PIN them.

Such a selection. Aren’t they just lovely?? Thank you everyone who swapped with me.  I hope these give you some inspiration for your projects.

I will show you the swap card that I created shortly.

Thanks for visiting,

GABLE CHRISTMAS BOX!

Here is a very quick treat box to make up for Christmas.  This one we made at my Christmas in July Class a while ago.  Yes I know that long ago and I am just sharing it now.  Sorry. 🙂

I thought you might like to see it.

These are using the Silver Gable Boxes in the Annual Catalogue.  You get 12 to a pack.  They also come White.

I diecut the red card with the Delicate Lace Edgelits. This was adhered to the front and the back of the box.   The sentiment is from the Stylish Christmas set and punch out with the Everyday Label Punch.  I punched one from Shaded Spruce too to add behind.  I tied around some of the Real Red Solid ribbon on the handle.  Too easy and they will fit a few sweet treats.

Hope you like it?  Thanks for looking.

CAROLS OF CHRISTMAS – DAY 5!

DAY 5

Today’s project is actually a gift box.  It is always good to have little boxes to fill with chocolates or treats.  This is not a new box for me but I will give you the instructions shortly.

I created the sentiment the same way as I did on the card from yesterday.  You can go back to that post to check it out if you like.  This box was just the right size to add the die cut frame on the top of the box.  The ornaments on the side was added as an afterthought.  It needed something there.  I probably should have thought of that before I assembled the box.  So stamping on this afterwards was a little stressful.  I held a clear block to the back of the panel when I stamped – and held my breath. That is an important stamping requirement you know. 😉  It turned out well not just once but twice.  I was so lucky!!

To make the box:

I designed this box a few years ago now.  You can find the Original post with the instructions in Metric and Imperial on this post HERE. 

Here is the card and the box together to see what a great pair they make. Funky for Christmas do you think?? 🙂

MORE 6″x6″ TREAT HOLDERS!

Yesterday I showed you some more Z-fold cards and they had little treat holders.  I thought I would share with you how to make those particular ones.

Firstly, the Dapper Denim Napkin fold.

These are one of the easiest, quickest treat holder you could possibly make.  I used to make them a lot when I was younger but had forgotten about them until recently.  They are a good size to fit a small chocolate treat in.  Here is how to make them.

Of course, you can make these any size you like.  The principal is the same.  Just be sure that your paper is square.

For this particular version I used the Color Theory paper stack in which the piece measures 6″x6″ (15.2cm x 15.2cm).

NAPKIN FOLD TREAT HOLDER

1. Fold your paper piece in half diagonally.

2.  With the fold towards you, take the left hand corner and fold it to about the mid point on the paper on the opposite side.  See the photo below to see what I mean.

3. Fold the right hand corner so it overlaps the last fold and for the point to reach the mid point on the opposite side.  Place a little adhesive behind the folds to help it stay closed.

4. Take the top point and fold just one layer down over the 2 folds. Place adhesive behind it to keep it closed.

Add a tag or embellishment as you like.  For this version, I used the Dapper Denim marker over just the “smile” word in one of the sentiments from the Colorful Seasons set.  Cut that with the Stitched Oval Framelits.  I stamped a few snowflakes on to the piece too and finished it off by cutting some “snowflake” embellishments from the Layered Seasons Thinlits.

OLD OLIVE MINI BOX

This little mini box is so cute.  You could fit a lipstick or lip balm in it or a small chocolate.  The finished size measures 7cm Wide (2 3/4″),  3.2cm Deep (1 1/4″) and 2.2cm Height (7/8″).

This was made with the Envelope Punch Board.  When I went back to find the tutorial for this I couldn’t seem to find it.  I am sure I used the one by my lovely friend Tanya HERE.  When I made it up again though it was slightly longer.  The tutorial at that link is a paid Tutorial for lots of different sized boxes with the Envelope Punch Board, but for $2 it is not a bad purchase. 🙂  Have a look on Pinterest though for a few other versions.  There are larger ones but I was in keeping with the 6″x6″ paper.

So here are the 4 little treat holders made just with a piece of 6″x6″ paper.  There are so many others too but it is amazing what you can make with such a small piece.

JUST A NOTE: If you want to see the tutorials for the Daffodil Delight bag Head -> HERE (Pootles blog) and for the Berry Burst Bag Head -> HERE.

Enjoy,

Jenny

AS PROMISED – MORE Z-FOLDS WITH COLORFUL SEASONS!

A few weeks back I shared some Z-fold cards using the Colorful Seasons bundle.  They have been HUGELY popular on my blog since.  You can see the original post HERE but these were the cards I shared then just to jog your memory.

I used the Color Theory Paper Stack that has 4 colours in the set; Crushed Curry, Berry Burst, Dapper Denim and Old Olive. At the time I said I would create 2 more with the other 2 colours. I finally have got around to creating these and wanted to share them with you.  Of course,  I made different matching bags for these too.  Each of the bags/boxes I made are created with one piece of the 6″x6″ paper stack.  I will give details of those individually in tomorrow’s post.

Firstly, the Old Olive version with a Mini box. It’s a great size box to add a Lip Balm or mini chocolate.  I just kept the wrapping simple with some Gold Taffeta Ribbon.

And for the Dapper Denim Version with a Pouch for the Treat Holder.

Now here are the 4 z-fold cards all together.  It’s a bit hard to capture them all in one photo but I hope you get the general idea. There is a different sentiment for each colour.

If you want to make your own Z-fold card I followed Amanda’s blog post HERE. (for Metric)  

If you are after Imperial measurements then I located a video by Dawn Griffith HERE.

For the box and the little Pouch I will post all the details tomorrow to make those, so stop on by.

I hope you like these new versions of Z-fold cards?? Thanks for visiting,

Jenny

MINI NOTE CARDS WITH HIGH TIDE!

I held a workshop last week and the Host asked to use the High Tide set.  As a Thank You to her I made up a little notecard set and put them all together in a box made with the Wood Crate Framelits.  Here they are for you to see.

For the sentiment on the crate I went over the “shine” word with the markers and stamped on white card.  I did have to go over it a little with the markers when I stamped it to get a clear impression.

Here are the cards for you to see each one.  The cards measure 7.5cm x 7.5cm (3″x3″).  I made them all different.  The set is so versatile and so many combinations you can create.  I hadn’t played with this set that much until I made these.

This is the Make and Take card we made.  This is Cased from Julie Davison HERE.

I think I need to use this set  more.  I have so much to play with at the moment. Just not enough time 🙂

Thanks for visiting me.
