Cottage Wreaths easel Card with Matching Gift Bag

I participated in a Black Friday (or Saturday) virtual event this morning. I made a Cottage Wreaths easel card with a matching gift bag.

The gift bag is made using the Mini Pocket Envelope dies. I CASE-d this from Sharon Burkitt, an extremely talented lady who is part of the Creativity Abounds tutorial group.

You can watch the Facebook replay of how to make both projects below:

I am CASE-ing one of the swaps that I received for our blog hop today. Unfortunately, the lady who swapped with me didn’t put her name or contact details on the swap, so I don’t know who to credit for the inspiration. If you swapped with me or happen to know who made this swap, please let me know and I will add their name to this post.

The little boxes inside the holder are so easy to make using the Design a Treat Box bundle.

Framed Florets tag Gift Card Holder

Do you love giving gift cards to people when they need a present? If you answer is yes, Stampin’ Up! has a wonderful kit available called the Christmas Gifting kit. This kit come with everything that you need to make 9 tags with a gift card holder on the back which have a Christmas feel to them.

I decided that I really like these tags, but what if I wanted them for an occasion other than Christmas? I set about to re-create them – and I think that I succeeded. I used the Framed Florets bundle which will be available in the January – June 2023 mini catalogue, but can be purchased on pre-order from the 4th November. The DSP is Fitting Florets and will only be available during the pre-order period.

I made this is my regular Facebook live last week. You can watch the replay below:

Here are the measurements to make the tags:

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Gift Packaging

Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia are participating. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you! Our theme this month is “Gift Packaging”. Whether you are still wrapping your Christmas presents, or giving a birthday or just because present, I am sure that you will find inspiration here.

This project was inspired by Debbie Blake, a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in Western Australia. All that you need to make this is a square piece of DSP (this one uses Beauty of the Earth DSP) and a library clip. To make it, all you need to do is fold your paper!

If you use Christmas paper, you can tie a ribbon through the library clip and it can double up as a Christmas tree ornament. These are photos showing the top and bottom of the bag

Here is a quick video which will explain how to fold the paper

Be sure to complete the hop to see all the wonderful ideas that we have to share with you. The next stop is Annette. I can’t wait to see what she has created this month.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Shirt Gift Pouch using In Good Taste DSP

Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia are participating. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you! Our theme this month is “Gift Packaging”. You may have arrived from Shirley Merker’s blog. She always has such great packaging ideas!

My project is a quick and cute gift pouch. The only supplies that you need are DSP, ribbon and adhesive. Watch the video below for directions to make them. I did the brown one in the video, although my picture has the tie tied properly. I am sorry that I had stopped recording, because it was so funny with my husband with a tie around his neck showing me how to tie the knot, and me trying to replicate it with the ribbon!

Poinsettia Petals Mini Pizza Box

Welcome to this month’s Blogging Friends Blog Hop. The Theme for this month is “Anything but a card”. I have decorated a mini pizza box. You could be forgiven for thinking that I only have 2 stamp sets. It seems that every time I start creating there are a couple that jump into my hand and won’t leave! This box used the Poinsettia Petals bundle again.

It is really difficult to get a photo of shiny paper. This is using the silver foil sheets. (It looks a bit gold in some places, but in the paper it is definitely silver). Below is the front of the box

Thanks for dropping by my blog. I hope that you have fun hopping along to day. Be sure to leave a comment as we all love to know if you enjoy our projects.
