TEAM DAY SWAPS!

Last week we had a Team Recognition Day for the Inky Fingers Team I am in. It was a lovely day of creating together especially as we hadn’t been able to meet together for so long. We chatted and created and were recognised for our achievements this year.

This was all the lovelies in our team who attended the day.

Clare our DDM (Demonstrator Manager for Australia) was there. It is always so lovely to see her bubbly self. ūüôā This is also with Sarah one of my team members who came along too. It was so great to share that with her.

Vanessa our team leader gave some of us a little gift. There were particular requirements to attend the day and those who achieved the requirements TWICE received this gift box with some special ribbon and embellishments. I was so honoured to receive one.

The boxes are the Mini Paper Pumpkin boxes. Isn’t it gorgeous!

Below are the swaps I received. I didn’t make any swaps. We only found out the day before and I really didn’t have time to get anything together but people were so lovely to share some of their swaps with me.

This is a little bar of soap in the little cellophane bags. It is a lovely idea instead of chocolate.

This one is created with the Dove of Hope stamp set with the World Map Dies. I love how these co-ordinate together.

This is a little treat bag. Another lovely gift. It’s a great size for a mini chocolate.

This card below was created by my friend Leonie. It’s the cutest mini Pop-Up card using the Warm and Toasty stamp set. The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Christmas.

The little tree inside is from the Most Wonderful Time stamp set.

Stop by tomorrow and I will share the cutest little gift box and mini cards we made as our projects.

Have a great day,

Jenny

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. ūüôā

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. ūüėČ

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.

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. ūüôā ¬†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
