He's the Man Gift Box with Hinged Lid

I love to create fun gift bags and boxes. Today, I'm exited to share one of those with you. I received this Gift Box with Hinged Lid from my friend and SU! team member at a recent girls' craft weekend. I immediately thought of ways I could make and use more of these. The possibilities are endless!

Enjoy this this Replay of my August 15th Facebook Live then make note of or print the template so you can make these fabulous gift boxes on your own. What a great way to package little gifts or gift cards!

 

Templates for Gift Box with Hinged Lid

  • You'll want to make the bottom of the box first, then the top. Be sure to watch video to see how the box is put together once you've cut and scored your card stock and designer series paper.

Below are a few of the gift boxes I made with the He's The Man Designer Series Paper.

Remember that mistake I made in the Live demonstration? Yep, I had my template upside down when I glanced over at it. Ever do something like that? Well, it happens. BUT, look what I did here? I used the opposite side of the DSP and was able to make it work for another gift box.

With a new school year starting for many, the thought of using this gift box with hinged lid for teacher appreciation gifts. Chocolates, gift cards, paper clips & office supplies are just a few of the many items you can put in these for your favorite teachers, classroom aides, and school staff. The Apple Harvest Stamp Set and Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper were used to make the gift box below.

Easy-to-make Envelopes for Slimline Cards

I've demonstrated making Slimline Cards many times in the past. My most recent Slimline Cards feature the Hippest Hippos Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set and coordinating Hippest Hippos as shown in the photo below. (If you missed this, you can see the video demonstration and blog post with this link: https://bit.ly/3aNWpn0.

I'm often asked what kind of envelopes do I mail my Slimline Cards in. These cards fit in a standard business or letter size envelope or in a Slimline Envelope from Stampin' Up! or you can make your own with an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of card stock or Designer Series Paper that coordinates with your Slimline Card. Below is a video demonstration followed by a template and cutting and scoring dimensions.

Cutting & Scoring Dimensions:

  • Start with 8 1/2" x 11" card stock or DSP.
  • With card stock in horizontal position, score at 2 1/2" on one side and 2" on the opposite side.
  • Turn card stock to vertical position, score at 3/4" on one end and 1 1/4" on opposite end.
  • Cut away corners as shown. (TIP:  Cut corners at angles so envelope folds more easily.)
  • Fold on score lines.
  • Adhere long sides.
  • Adhere small end flap.

Awash in Beauty Tent Cards

It wedding rehearsal day! Yay! Andrea's immediate family is here in Columbus. Jon's family came to town yesterday. The two families are looking forward to getting together with the bridal party and a few extra guests for the rehearsal and a casual dinner. The weather is looking iffy at best for Sunday's wedding, so it is likely that the ceremony will now be indoors. As my neighbor told me, though, no matter the weather, Sunday will be a beautiful day filled with joy. I look forward to sharing pictures with you as soon as I can.

In today's post, you'll enjoy a video demonstration of "tent cards" featuring the Awash in Beauty Suite used 3 different ways. The Awash in Beauty Suite is my favorite floral suite in the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. The Designer Series Paper is GORGEOUS! I love the rich colors and pretty prints and patterns. The new Iridescent Pearls are just as lovely, so much so that I'm on my second pack of them. And the True Beauty Bundle is lovely and so versatile as you'll see in this video.

ICS Blog Hop 2022 - 2024 In Colors

Welcome to the June 2022 Inspire Create Share Blog Hop. This month's theme is "Meet the New In Colors". Sweet Sorbet, Parakeet Party, Tahitian Tide, Starry Sky, and Orchid Oasis - such fabulous names for such fabulous colors. They're bright. They're cheerful. They make me happy. They work so well together but also combine well with many of our other Stampin' Up! colors. All of the 2022 - 2024 In Color projects created for this month's blog hop are intended to inspire you and help you get your stamping and crafting on. So get started and enjoy our Meet the New In Colors blog hop.

6a01b8d1640c2c970c026bdee744bc200c-500wi

For this blog hop post, I chose to use all 5 new In Colors on 1 card. I think they're fun, festive colors so decided I'd create a birthday card. Then as I was creating, I thought, "why not turn it into a gift card holder", something I always need. I hope you enjoy my gift card holder featuring the 2022 - 2024 In Colors and will give it a try. It's really quite quick and easy and is just as much fun to make as it will be to give to someone special.

Thanks for visiting Stampin' Peace with Mary Knabe. I hope today's blog post inspired you to make some fun projects with the new 2022 - 2024 In Colors including my Happy Birthday Gift Card Holder.

Have a great week and stay cool. The weather report in Columbus, Ohio, is saying it feels like 104 degrees. That's not unheard of here but quite a bit higher than our average high temperature for June. And the humidity is super high too. 


Double Gate Fold Card with Flowering Fields Suite

Making and sending Fun Fold Cards is always a good time, but this one is double the fun. In the following video replay of my June 10th FB Live, I demonstrate how to make a Double Gate Fold Card featuring the bright and beautiful Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper. I show you 2 versions and think you'll love both of them.

Artisan Additions Dies Take 2

In my last post, you saw me demonstrate using 2 of the 3 dies in the Artisan Additions Dies collection. Now, I'll show you 3 very different cards made with the 3rd die in that set. I also feature products from the Awash In Beauty Suite and Go To Greetings Stamp Set. Please watch the entire video replay of my June 1st Facebook Live to see me demonstrate how to make all three of the cards below as well as a unique way of using the new Decorative Circle Punch. This one is a bit longer than most of my videos, but it's packed full of stampin' goodness. 

I recently demonstrated the Off-Center Z-Fold card with the Hey Sports Fan Suite. Here it is again with the Artisan Additions Dies and Awash in Beauty Suite. This may just be my favorite new fun fold.Stampin' Up! Artisan Additions Dies with Awash in Beauty Suite - Mary Knabe

The Off-Center Z-Fold card is great for showing off your favorite Designer Series Papers.

Stampin' Up! Artisan Additions Dies with Awash in Beauty Suite - Mary Knabe

Stampin' Up! Artisan Additions Dies with Awash in Beauty Suite - Mary Knabe

Cutting Dimensions for Off-Center Z-Fold Cards:

  • Card base = 5 1/2" x 11", cut off 1/4" to make base 5 1/2" x 10 3/4", (do not discard 1/4 strip as it is used on this card).
  • Score card base at 3 1/2" and 6 3/4" on long side.
  • DSP on front/left panel = 3 1/4" x 5 1/4"
  • DSP on middle panel = 3" x 5 1/4"
  • Basic White card stock on right panel = 3 3/4" x 5 1/4" (1/4" strip cut from card base will be used on this piece)

 

The same Artisan Additions Die used in the card above is used in completely different ways in the next 2 cards.Stampin' Up! Artisan Additions Dies with Awash in Beauty Suite - Mary Knabe (4)

I hope you watched the video to see how I punched the ends of the Happy Birthday banner using the new Decorative Circle Punch. Make your punches more versatile by finding new ways to use them as I did on this card.

Cutting Dimensions for Happy Birthday Card above:

  • Card base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score at 4 1/4" on long side, fold in half.
  • Basic White (cut 2, 1 for front, 1 for inside) = 5 1/4" x 4"

Sometimes you need a bright and cheery card "just because". I have no doubt this Polished Pink card will bring a smile to whoever receives it.

A Polished Pink bow and some Iridescent Pearl Basic Jewels are the perfect embellishments to finish off this card.
