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.

In this Video Replay of my January 10th Facebook Live, you'll see me use 6 sheets of the Simply Marbleous DSP, one sheet of each color, all cut the same way. I call it my "One Sheet Wonder x 6". It makes 2 sets of 6 cards each plus a Slimline Card and Gift Tag using all 6 colors. It's easy. It's fun. And the cards are so pretty and work for just about any occasion. Use this method when you need to make several cards at once or when you want to build up your stash of cards to have on hand and use as needed.

Gingerbread & Peppermint Card & Gift Bag

I'm so excited to share today's card and gift bag project with you. I absolutely love it. I created this festive card with products from the Gingerbread & Peppermint Suite. Talk about FUN. This suite has it! Traditional bright red and green patterns and a traditional theme of yummy holiday treats - gingerbread and peppermints. Be sure to download the project sheet using the link below for today's Free Friday Download.

As an alternate to mailing this card, you can give it the additional purpose of decorating a gift bag. Card & Gift Bag together, no lost cards or tiny tag. To do this cut a 1 1/2" strip of coordinating color card stock the width of your gift bag. Use a strong adhesive (like Stampin' Seal+ or Tear & Tape) on each end of the strip only to adhere it to the bag. Slip the card over the strip and there you go!

Delivering Birthday Cheer

Today is a BIG day. Today is my daughter Andrea's 30th birthday which means I have been a mom for 3 whole decades. Honestly, it's been the best "job" I've ever had and title that I am most proud of. I didn't always get the mothering right, but all of it was done with great love. And when I see my children as adults, I couldn't be more proud of them and the raising of children that their dad and I did. 

So since today is a special birthday for our family, I decided my Delivering Cheer card & gift bag would used for today's blog post. I love everything about this hanging card & gift bag and am excited for you to view the demonstration below. What I want you to know up front is that this birthday card was made with the Delivering Cheer holiday stamp set from our Mini Catalog. I love when I can find ways to showcase our holiday stamp sets beyond the holiday season. Doing so, we make our products more versatile and get more bang for our buck. Purchasing stamping and paper crafting supplies can get pricey so we need to find as many uses for our products as we can. (I sure am glad I have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator discount and save on all my purchases. Ask me how you can too.)

I think you'll enjoy not only seeing me create a birthday card from a holiday stamp set, but also how I use that same card to decorate a plain gift bag. It's 2 projects in 1.

 

I love the many different colors of Stampin' Blends we sell so I can so I can mix and match colors for just the right color palette for my project. I love all the bright colors used for this birthday card.

I hope you'll take some time to browse the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog to see if you can find stamp sets that you can use beyond the holiday season. If you aren't currently working with a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I'd love to earn your business and would be happy to send you a complimentary catalog.


Thanks for stopping by and viewing today's post. I hope you leave feeling inspired or having learned something new.

Enjoy the rest of your day!

 

 

 


Craft Your Own Gift Bags

I love making my own gift bags! I purchase plain white and kraft gift bags of various sizes online (check out Amazon and/or google kraft gift bags). Then I decorate them with Stampin' Up! supplies - from Designer Series Paper and card stock to ribbons and embellishments. The possibilities are endless! I make them for holidays and specific occasions such as birthdays or baby showers. They're perfect for those "just because" gifts too. And nothings better than giving a handmade gift than giving it in  wonderful handmade packaging. I know many of you like me love to gift our hand stamped cards. Why not decorate a gift bag to put them in for an added touch? 

Below I show you in pictures how I made a pretty and festive gift bag for the holidays. The Adorning Designs Decorative Masks made it easy. I chose the snowflake mask, 1 of 4 in the set, sponged our White Craft Ink over it onto my kraft gift bag, heat set it, and added a fun gift tag I made as an embellishment. I love how it turned out. It was quick. It was easy. It was fun! AND, it was inexpensive to make! I'll admit, I am frugal when it comes to packaging gifts. I will not spend $4 on a simple no frills gift bag at the store when I can make something myself. And you know what? People love my handmade bags and want to save them so they can reuse them. That says a lot, doesn't it.

So follow my step-by-step pictures below, then give these Adorning Designs Decorative Masks a try!

Builder Punch & Stamparatus Technique

The Stamparatus is one of the BEST stamping tools you can have in your craft room. I HIGHLY recommend it for all stampers. It's #1 use for me is doing repeated stamping - like for making 100+ Christmas cards of the same design. BUT, don't think that is all the Stamparatus does because it does so much more! This video is the 2nd in my Facebook Live Stamparatus Series. I'll show you how to maximize your time and eliminate all that waste of card stock you often get with using Builder Punches.

(If you missed the 1st video in my Stamparatus series, you can find it further down in this post.)

 

Sweet Strawberry Bundle & Stamparatus by Stampin' Up!This photo shows my set up before I begin stamping. Notice that I have the strawberry stamps on the top sides of the stamping plates as I stamp those first. The strawberry tops and leaves are each on the reverse side as I'll stamp those second in a different color. Remember to have the stamping plates in a vertical position when removing them from and placing them in the "hinges" of your Stamparatus base.

Sweet Strawberry Bundle & Stamparatus by Stampin' Up!

I really do enjoy making my own gift bags and coordinating tags. There's something very satisfying about taking an ordinary, plain bag and making it special! I typically purchase kraft and white paper bags for this purpose.

Teacher Appreciation Day is May 4th

As a former teacher and mom who made sure our family showed our appreciation for our children's teachers, school employees, and bus drivers,  I can say a little token of appreciation goes a long way in helping people enjoy their jobs and stay motivated to do and be the best they can be. Tuesday, May 4th is Teacher Appreciation Day. I kept that day in mind when planning my April 28th Facebook Live projects. I created 2 sets of cards and a fun 3D gift tag that you can make quickly and easily and with limited supplies. All projects feature one of my favorite punches, the Apple Builder Punch. If you don't have it yet, I think you're going to want it after seeing this video demonstration. AND you'll want to order it quickly as this item is retiring on May 3rd and is only available while supplies last. AND if you can believe it, it is on sale for just $7.20 (originally $18.00). It doesn't get better than that. 

The projects you're about to see in this video are not only great for Teacher Appreciation Day, but for other reasons as well. How about as a Back to School gift, a hostess gift, fall harvest notes, a co-worker gift, or simply to surprise someone with a little pick me up or gift of cheer? How about using these apple cards to send notes and gifts to the "apples of your eyes" - grandchildren or students on summer break?

I used Real Red DSP from the 2020-2021 Regals Paper Pack for these card sets.

In the following sets of cards, I used the NEW 2021-2022 Regals Paper Pack Collection. I LOVE the tone-on-tone patterns of the new 6" x 6" DSP's in Brights, Neutrals, Regals, Subtles, and 2021-2023 In Colors. These will be available for all to order on Tuesday, May 4th with the launch of our brand new Annual Catalog.Apple Builder Punch by Stampin' Up!

Who knew that a simple $3.50 product could give so much dimension to an otherwise flat shape? That's exactly what our White Stampin' Chalk Marker does for these apples. It's my best $3.50 investment ever! It also works great for coloring the center of small flowers and so much more. Trust me when I say, "Everyone needs one".

Video Demonstration - Popcorn Purse

As requested by so many who saw my original posts on my very fancy and very chic Oscar Night clutch, I did a video demonstration for my April 26th Facebook Live on how to make these fun party favors. They are great for Girls' Nights, bridal showers and bachelorette parties, little girls' birthday parties and tea parties, and so much more. You can also give them as "movie night" gifts. Perhaps, include and movie DVD or theatre gift card with this fun favor. One viewer even suggested using it as a "welcome to the neighborhood gift" with a movie and enough popcorn favors for the whole family. You could swap out popcorn for a chocolate bar and other treats or a notebook or journal. How about using it as a Mother's Day gift? Change up the paper for any occasion and the size to accommodate other treats or gifts. You can even make something more masculine - think wallet for Father's Day or a brother or an uncle or grandpa's birthday. So many possibilities!

 

Here's some individual photos for a closer look at my popcorn purses!

I love using tiny refrigerator magnets for my purse closures. These are 8mm x 1mm. I purchased them on Amazon.
