A Fast and Fun Christmas Gift , Stampin’ Up!

Hello Stampers!

Guess what……I just finished my blog post for today! I promised to have a new one every day through Christmas Eve and I forgot. So I thought, it is close to Christmas, people may be in crunch time mode…..make a quick and easy one!

So this is what I came up with and you may have many of the easy things needed to make these, and guess what else? If you don’t ,swap it our for a stamp set you have, or you could even go the route of giving thank you cards! People NEED those too!

If you have the Pizza Boxes to add the cards below to, you could add some DSP and a simple stamped image, tie some ribbon as well if you’d like.

If you don’t , just tie it up with a pretty , festive ribbon, or layer two together as I did with these!

You could copy any of the cards shown and make the same stamp only ones, or DSP and a stamp, whatever works for your needs!

So without further delay…..

The note cards are 3″ by 6″, score at 3″, you can use Whisper White or Very Vanilla to make it easy. You can use colored card stock but you may need to add a white insert so keep it simple.

Then Stamp, use ink that is not a traditional Christmas color, know why? It is your card! And besides Christmas lights on a string are all different colors right?

I went with similar color schemes, for example:

Rich Razzleberry and Perfect Plum

Dapper Denim and Marina Mist

I think they are fun and take the stress out.

Another way is the Stampin’ Blends if you WANT to color…..if you don’t just Stamp It! 🙂

One more way is a bold sentiment with a 2 3/4″ square piece of DSP behind it! Ya know you have tons of cool DSP leftover 😉

So easy and fun and really with endless possibilities too

Hope you have fun creating your version!

Stay tuned for a new idea each day up through Christmas Eve:)…..Even if I “Last Minute Lucy” it 😀

Until next time,

Stay Crafty

For the CHRISTMAS BOX you will need one piece of card stock and a Designer Series Paper piece

LID Cardstock to measure 7 1/4″ by 8 1/4″

on the 8 1/4 side, score at 1 /2″, 2 6/8″, 5 12/”, 7 6/8″

on the 7 1/4″ side, score at 2 1/4″, 5″, 7 2/8″

BOTTOM Cardstock to measure 8 1/8″ by 6 7/8″

on the 8 1/8″ side, score at 1/2″, 2 3/4″, 5 3/8″, 7 5/8″

on the 6 7/8″ side, score at 2 1/8″, 4 6/8″

Someone also suggested to punch out with a 1/2″ Circle Punch on the lid to make it easier to lift the lid from the bottom of the box, that is a great idea, as suction will hold it closed a bit. Just be sure you punch on the side that DOES NOT have the flaps holding the box together.

I will do this and add a pic as well.

Scalloped Tag Topper Treat Holders, Stampin’ Up!

 

Hi Stampers!

Today I am sharing these super simple and cute treat holders you can create for many little gifts this holiday season!

You could use any Designer Series Paper for this project, but I have to say the Christmas Around the World DSP is one of my ALL TIME FAVS! It is also great since you can use the scraps and cut out little pieces to decorate your treat holder, a two for one in my opinion.

 

I will give measurements for both of them, but if you have a larger treat, all you need to do is to make your flaps a bit longer and you can always make the base a bit wider too to accommodate any treat!

Also, be sure if you haven’t already to sign up for my Holiday Helper emails, it will give you 13 Holiday ideas of cute cards and treat holders just like these to knock out your Christmas gift list in no time! I need your email address and name sent to Rachthestamper@gmail.com.

#1 Tic Tac Holder

Start with a piece of DSP measuring 7 5/8″ by 3 1/8″, on the 7 5/8″ side, score at 3 3/8″ on each side by scoring and then rotating the card stock 90* and repeating the score. Then on the 3 1/8″ side, score at 1/2″ on each side again by scoring and then rotating 90* and scoring.

Below is  a step by step photo template

Below is  a photo template so you know what the trimmed holder should look like prior to adding Fast Fuse (FF).


#2 York Peppermint Patty Holder

Start with a piece of DSP measuring 1 15/16″ by 7″, on the 7″ side, score at 3 1/8″ on each side by turning the card stock piece around 90*, it will make a more even treat holder.

Below is  a photo template so you know what the trimmed holder should look like, then just use the Scallop Tag Topper punch at each end, and add ribbon to hold closed.

A Fun Gift box, Stampin’ Up!



Happy New Year STAMPERS!!! Here’s to another great year of crafts, cards and fun little projects 🙂

Sorry this is a tad behind the You Tube post, but I wanted to get the video out to you and post the measurements as soon as I could. You will find all that info below.

 

Alright, to start out you will need a 12×12 sheet of your card stock of choice , this will still work with DSP, but it WILL be a little flimsier. If I were you, I would just add in some DSP pieces to spruce up the box you create!

Pick a side, and you will score at 1/2″ and 3 1/2″ on each side, it is easiest to use the Simply Scored scoring tool and also easier if you score one side, then flip and repeat. I say this because from time to time, the 12″ measurement is just the tiniest bit off or not square. If you score then flip and repeat, you will get a truer box. ( Meaning more exact in the edges and overall squareness).

You are going to now turn to the unscored side, ( either one) and score at 3″ 5 5/8″. 8 5/8″ and 11 3/8″.

Thats it, now just fold on you score lines, you can use to bone folder for your creases if you’d like, then we will begin to trim.

You are also going to want to use either Tombow liquid glue or Tear and Tape. You will really want to secure the sides so it will not come apart when your friend opens it.

You will cut up the score lines on all sides at all lines, meaning both sides.

Trim off the two side slim pieces.

Trim in the sides of the 2nd and 4th sides on both sides, and snip a bit off of the ends because they will not need to be full length.

Trim the sides of the 3rd piece a bit, but do not trim the end.

Add adhesive to the thin fold piece, and the 2nd and 4th flaps as shown.

Fold them in, then fold the flap with the thin strip down and you are done.

If you want to add DSP to the top, sides, and front and back, you will need to cut the pieces as follows.

Two pieces( front and back long sides) 2 7/8″ by 4 7/8″

One piece( top piece) at 2 1/2″ by 4 7/8″

Two pieces at (two side parts) 2 3/8″ by 2 5/8″

I would love to know how you changed yours and what papers you used, drop me a line, or leave a comment and TELL ME! 🙂

 

Until Next time, Stay Crafty!!
