Note Card Box with All Things Thanks

I have an event coming up and have been thinking about a little hostess gift. The other morning I saw a video from Ronda Wade where she created a darling note card box from one sheet of card stock. Love at first sight! And an answer to my query.

Isn’t this so cute?

 

Design Notes for Note Card Box:

First things first. You have to have a Stampin’ Trimmer or Simply Scored Board to make this box. There is a fair amount of scoring for this. Here are my scoring/cutting samples.

I added some Tear & Tape as indicated.

Just fold the sides over, and then adhere with the Tear & Tape. I added Designer Paper before I assembled but it really doesn’t matter. It’s easy to add after you assemble the box.

The decorative part was fun. You know how I love to heat emboss and used this as an opportunity to dig out some copper accents. The ribbon is from the Tea Room suite and the edge of copper was just too perfect. One option for the box is to wrap the ribbon around and then untie it to open it. I did tie the ribbon around but put a glue dot under the bow. Then all the recipient has to do is pull the ribbon off from the back, without untieing.

You can see the ribbon here.

Stampin’ Up! Turns 30!

During the past few weeks, I’ve posted a few things relating to Stampin’ Up!’s 30th year in business. Last week I was in Orlando for the annual convention and celebration of 30 years. What a great time! Fun and exhausting! Often times at convention, demonstrators make little gifts for one another. Unfortunately, it just wasn’t in my schedule this time. However, two of my down line got together and created a darling gift! It’s clear they know that Stampin’ Up! Turns 30!

I love those little pizza boxes.

Tea Tins Time

The Holiday Catalog features adorable Tins that will be perfect for holiday gifts or cards (see page 13 ). It occurred to me the other day that I had just ordered some of the Tea Tins from the regular catalog and hadn’t used them yet. We went to a lovely party this weekend and I decorated one to use as a hostess gift.

Design Notes for Tea Tins:

Heat embossing – one of my favorite things to do! I used some Copper Heat Emboss Powder and then used some Stampin’ Blends to color in the design. I also heat embossed the “Thank You” from the Accented Blooms stamp set. it was pretty easy to use my Paper Snips and cut out the flower piece. The “Thank You” was popped up on some Stampin’ Dimensionals. To finish off, I added some of the Copper Thread behind and around the design. Just enough.

I put some tea bags in the tin and then placed the tin in a cello bag. The Copper Trim finished off the packaging.

Celebrate July 4th with Red, White and Blueberry Bushel!

Over the weekend, we had a houseful of company for an early July 4 celebration. It was all very “Americana”. We cooked out, saw fireworks, and participated in a golf cart parade. (Scroll to the end for pictures.) I even made a blueberry cake and cherry turnovers for desserts. So of course, I made little gift boxes for everyone with red, white and blue (Lovely Lipstick, Whisper White and Blueberry Bushel.) Here are some of the boxes I made.

I later added the names under the “Celebrate” sentiment.

Design Notes for Blueberry Bushel Boxes:

I first saw Ronda Wade make these boxes on one of her weekly videos. So easy! It’s a one piece box that is made from one piece of card stock. I’ve written up a tutorial for you with lots of photos. All you need to do is click on the title here. Directions for Treat Box.

Beautiful You stamp set, Balloon Celebration stamp set, Blueberry Bushel paper, ink, ribbon, July 4th, boxes, Stampin' Up!, diannescards.com

When you create your treat box, you can decorate it however you like. I used a 2″ wide strip of Whisper White Card Stock. To create the stars, I used a stamp from the Balloon Celebrations stamp set and Versamark ink. Some heat and Silver Embossing Powder gave it a little sparkle. More sparkle was added with the Silver Glimmer Paper. The “Celebrate” sentiment is from the Beautiful You stamp set. The circles are Starburst Punch, 1 3/4″ Circle Punch and 1 1/2″ Circle Punch. After I put the band on, I added some Lovely Lipstick or Blueberry Bushel ribbon. Easy, right?

Oh, here are some pictures from the Golf Cart Parade.

Broadway Birthday Gift Bag and Card!

Confession time – when I first looked at the new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog, Broadway Birthday was not on my Wish List. And believe me, my Wish List was pretty long! But, for the month of June, the Paper Pumpkin kit featured stamps and projects that coordinate with the Broadway Bound Suite. (See my cards and scrap book projects here.)  That was all I needed. The Broadway Bound Suite items moved to the top of my list! I recently saw a video that Ronda Wade made where she demonstrated how to create a gift bag and card from two pieces of designer series paper. It seemed perfect for this paper. What a fun project.

Design Notes for Broadway Birthday Gift Bag:

The bag went together so quickly! There was a piece of paper left over for a card. I saved it for another time and used a different paper from the same package, Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper. The coordinating Framelits, Broadway Lights,  made it easy to cut out the “Wish” and marquee pieces. I finished off the “Wish” with the stamped  “Make A” and one of the Candle Embellishments. The Candle Embellishments are so cute and even have adhesive on the back.
