Creative Packaging

Don't throw those old Paper Pumpkin boxes and empty card board boxes. Give them new life. Use your imagination; use your Stampin' Up! products; and get creative! People will be as impressed with your packaging as with their gift. And I believe they will be grateful for the love and heart you put into your gift giving. Here are a few boxes I decorated for Christmas gift giving last month.

Team Gifts in Pretty Boxes!

I could hardly wait to show you the Christmas gifts I gave my Merry Stampers Team Members. I didn't want to show you all until each of my team members received theirs. Then with the hustle and bustle of the holidays and spending lots of time with my daughters, I forgot. But they are too awesome not to share now.

Each of my Merry Stampers received a Stampin' Up! acrylic block etched with our team name and SU! motto. I am so grateful to my friend Tamra Davis for doing such a wonderful job with the etching. Tamra does such great work! Check out her Ta Da Etsy Shop! And of course, being a paper crafter, I couldn't package these special stamping blocks any old way. I decorated Stampin' Up! Gold Mini Pizza Boxes with the beautiful Christmas Time is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper. I love how each of the boxes turned out, and I love the excitement, enthusiasm, and gratitude I got from my Merry Stampers for this special gift.

My success is very much in part to my wonderful team of caring and sharing demonstrators. They have helped me grow in so many ways! How blessed I am to lead others in this business.

I put a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock in the bottom of the box, so the clear block would be seen better when the box was opened as opposed to it being on the plain white inside of the box.

Tri-Fold DSP Card

Still have some leftover Halloween Designer Series Paper? What about all that pretty Autumn paper and other themed papers? Don't let them sit on a shelf just because the holiday or occasion had past. Take another look at them and see if there are sides that could be used for other occasions or other times of year. In this video, I'll give you a way to do just that. I know you're going to want to use up some of that old paper making some pretty tri-fold cards as I have in this Fun-Fold Card Demonstration of mine. Watch the video for cutting and scoring directions and assembly directions.

A+ Teacher Gift

Check out this fun gift and classroom organizational tool I created for a very special teacher, my daughter Andrea. Andrea is in her 5th year teaching 5th & 6th grade math. She is fabulous and has great rapport with her students and colleagues. I love when I have the opportunity to go in and help out in her classroom or attend special school events. It's great to see your adult child living her dream and doing so well at her chosen profession.

You can never have enough pencils when you have 130+ students coming to your classroom each day to learn math. I wanted to share my project here as many people are looking for creative and practical gifts for teachers this time of year. I purchased a traditional straw holder online, filled with lots of #2 pencils, then decorated it to make it look pretty. The Harvest Hellos Stamp Set and Apple Builder Punch from Stampin' Up! made putting a creative touch on this gift easy.

Sponging Technique with Feels Like Frost DSP

Having grown up in the Cleveland, Ohio area enjoying Lake Erie in the summer and lake effect snow in winter, I love a good snowfall and always dream of a white Christmas! No school snow days were a big deal...even for my dad who was a high school teacher. Dad would even flood our back yard in the winter making a skating rink for us. We'd spend our winter days skating and playing outside making snow forts, snowmen, and snow angels. I still make a pretty darn good snow angel...just sayin. Fortunately, my own kids loved snow days as much as I did growing up...sledding was there favorite snowy day activity. I remember calling their snow days from school, "drop everything & play days" because that's what we did. 

I made this card with all those snowy day memories in mind.

You can download a free project sheet to make this card too. Download Project Sheet - Free Skate meets Feels Like Frost DSP.

I've also included a link to a previous post where I demonstrated making this card using the Sponging Technique so be sure to check that out as well. http://bit.ly/2XafSmH
