WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #91 – CUTE APRON GIFT BOX!

Today’s Wednesday’s WOW!#91 I have a special project for you.  It’s an apron gift box. 

I shared this project at my Onstage presentation back in November.  I was honoured to present the Best Dressed Bundle in Sydney.  I will be sharing other projects with this bundle in the coming weeks but thought you might like to see this project.

It might be fun to make up a little gift box for someone.  If you are a Demonstrator it might be great as you start planning your Catalogue Launches in January.  I have made it in to a little Stampin’ Up! apron which is quite a novelty but you could use other card or paper and make a really pretty box.  I am sharing the template and the details below.

So many people loved this cute little bag at Onstage and also when I have shared it on some Facebook groups I am on.  Now here it is for you.

This is made with the All Dressed Up Dies.

Cut one bag front from black card.  Trim the side off the diecut bag and also the bottom tab so you are left with an apron shape.  Also cut 2 of the stitched strips from black card to use as the straps.

Here is the back of the bag.  I created a little box so you can fill it with small treats  It’s a very simple box.  I will share the template below.  The straps are attached at the top of the apron, crossed over and attached inside of the box at the back.

BOX TEMPLATE

Below is the template to create the box.  Cut your card 10.5cm x 12cm (4 1/8″x 4 3/4″).

Score on the short side at 4cm, 6.5cm (1 1/2″, 2 5/8″). Score on the long side at 2.5cm, 9.5cm (1″, 3 3/4″).

Cut up on the tabs on the short sides.  Fold on all the score lines.

Add adhesive to the outside of the small centre tabs on the short side.  Fold up to form a box.  Add more adhesive on the tabs as needed.  Adhere all together.

Place adhesive on the back of one side of the box.  Line up the bottom edge of the box with the bottom edge of the apron at the back to be sure it is straight. Adhere the straps on the apron and box.

I cut the small stitched sentiment shape to create the apron at the front and added a small logo from the Follow Your Art Washi Tape.

I hope you like the cute box/bag.  It’s a lot of fun to create.

This will be the last Wednesday’s WOW! for 2019.  We will have a couple of week’s break over Christmas and New Year and be back in 2020.  I look forward to sharing more with you in the new year.

If you have any suggestions of what you would like to see for future Wednesday’s WOW! then drop me a comment.

Happy creating,

Jenny

CHRISTMASTIME TALL BOX!

The Christmastime is Here Suite has been with us all month.  I have been so busy with projects for Onstage that I haven’t had near enough time with it.  I have been using the papers particularly though.

Recently I made a tall gift box using the Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I have had lots of lovely comments from class members when they see the box so thought you might like to see it yourself.

I love that this paper has the gold embossed outlines over one side of the paper.  There are 3 different designs in the pack with some type of gold touches.  It is gorgeous.  AND I love that this paper could easily be used for any occasion not just Christmas.

Here is the box I made.  Fill it with chocolates for a lovely friend, wrap around some of the gorgeous Gold ribbon and add a sentiment piece.  What more do you need.

The sentiment is from the set A Big Thank You.  The flowers were fussy cut from some of the paper.

Here is how to make your own Tall box.

CHRISTMASTIME IS HERE TALL BOX TUTORIAL

Cut card to 21cm x 21cm (8 ¼” x 8 ¼”)

Score on one side at 5cm and 19cm (2”, 7 ½”)

Turn and score on the other side at 5cm, 10cm, 15cm and 20cm.

(2”, 4”, 6”, 8”)

Card mats for the side: 4 each of 4.6cm x 13.6cm (1 7/8” x 5 3/8”)

Designer Series Paper: 4 each of 4.2cm x 13.2cm (1 ¾” x 5 ¼”)

Scraps for decorating.

Gold Ribbon

1. Fold on all score lines.

2. On the long side cut up on the score lines to the score line that runs across. This creates your tabs to fold up. Cut up each tab on both the top of the card and the bottom. The smaller tabs will be the bottom of the box. The larger tabs will form the top of the box.

3. On the short side of the card cut on the 2 score lines that are on the very narrow tab. Cut off completely the top tab and the bottom tab so you only have a narrow tab section in the middle.

4. Adhere the paper pieces to the card mat pieces and adhere them all to the sides of the box. You can adhere them after the box is assembled but it is a little easier to do it first.

To assemble the box:

5. Fold the score lines to form a box shape. Place adhesive on the outside of the narrow side tab and adhere the box together. On the small tabs at the bottom place adhesive on the outside of 3 of the tabs and fold in adhering them together on top of each other. Fold the last unglued tab over the top.

6. The top flaps will fold in and will hold together with wrapping the ribbon around.

7. Decorate the box as you like.

***

Hope you make one of the boxes for yourself.  They are very easy.

Not much time left to get any of the gorgeous Christmastime is Here products.  Don’t miss  out on this paper especially. 🙂

BIRD BALLAD TENT BOX!

I have this cute little box to share with you today.  It is a Tent box.  I have used the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.  We made this box at our team meeting last month.  It’s such a sweet size and you can fill the box with some chocolate treats and wrap it up in some gorgeous paper.

Bird Ballad Tent Box

The little flowers from the Free As A Bird stamp set were stamped on scrap white with Memento Black ink and then coloured with the Petal Pink and the Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends.  Then they were then handcut.

I love this paper from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper packThe paper creates a little wrapper around the box.  You could make this style any size you like.

So would you like to make your own little Tent Box.

You can find it on Sam’s blog – Pootles -> HERE. 

Thanks for visiting me today.

SILVER GABLE BOXES!

Have you seen the Silver Gable Boxes in the Occasions Catalogue?  These make really quick gift boxes in no time.

I shared in the last post the boxes I made up for the Lucky Door Prize for my launch. Head back to see those.  I made a few more up to show ideas with them.  Let me show you.

Firstly, a simple one with the Hedgehugs set.  Cute!  The paper strip is from the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper pack.  I stamped the hedgehog in Dapper Denim and coloured the centre of the flower with the Lemon Lime Twist marker.  I added a bow with Lemon Lime Twist Mini Striped ribbon with a glue dot.

Here is another Gable Box.  This time decorated with the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper.

 

The sentiment is from the Birthday Blossoms set.  I love the Metallic Edge Berry Burst Ribbon.

Here is another version of the boxes.

This time I cut off the top of the Gable Box. So the handle section along the scored line.  Then created a wrap using the Sweet Soiree Specialty DSP.  I added a strip of the Berry Burst cardstock and then tied some Lemon Lime Finely Woven Ribbon.

You can grab the boxes in store now -> HERE and decorate them how you like.  They are $14 for a 12 pack.

Grab some and give a little treat to someone to brighten their day.

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

FAIR PROJECTS UPDATE!!

Last week was a very busy week.  I had 3 markets/fair events.  It was great seeing some familiar faces and meeting up with new people.  I thought I would share some of the projects I made for the markets.  Having 3 in the week was interesting also to see just how different things sold.  So I will let you know about that too.

A little while ago I picked up some lip balm balls and sticks reduced at a local store so I grabbed those to make some cute holders for them.

The tutorial to make your own Lip Balm Boxes can be found HERE.  They are so quick to make.

Here are some tiny Lip Balm Purses.  Both of these created some interest.

P1170785

Here is a close-up from the side. (sorry I realised I hadn’t met the tops together neatly before I took the photo!)

P1170787

These are cute little purses. It was great to use up some retired papers too. You can make your own from the tutorial HERE. 

Now I made these fun little packs too.  There is a cute  poem on the back of them and I forgot to take a photo of these.  I will add them below.

P1170780

The Reindeer Poop was very popular at one event at a school.  It appealed to some boys sense of humour, or was it that there was no other chocolate sold there at the time?? 😉  I made some more bags up but then I didn’t sell one bag at that craft fair. You never know!

Here are the poems. I found these on Pinterest.

REINDEER FOOD

Just Sprinkle on the lawn at night,

The moon will make it sparkle bright.

As Santa’s reindeer fly and roam,

This treat will guide them to your home.

 

REINDEER POOP

I heard that you’ve been naughty,

So here’s the inside scoop,

All you get for Christmas,

Is this bag of Reindeer Poop!

 

I have more to show you but that is enough for one post.  Pop back again and I will show you some more in the next post.

THE END OF SALE-A-BRATION 2015!

I can’t believe how quickly the past few months have gone with Sale-A-Bration.  There has been so many great products that are going to be sadly missed.  What has been your favourite???  I have already mentioned a few of my favourites with ‘Lotus Blossom’ and ‘Big Day’.  Then we had some fantastic new additions. Sadly not much time to play with them but the papers were gorgeous.

Here are some projects to share with you courtesy of Stampin’ Up! I don’t know who the original creators are so I do apologise but these showcase some of the gorgeous products we have enjoyed during Sale-A-Bration.
