Super Quick Gift Wrap with Stampin'Up! Gable Boxes

Today you'll get the instructions for Super Quick Gift Wrap with Stampin'Up! Gable Boxes.

If you've been to one of my events in the last couple of weeks you may have won a door prize of chocolate--yes, that's awesome in itself....BUT, the chocolates were presented in this super cute gift wrap.... Gable bo Side

I used the Stampin'Up! Lustrous White Gable Boxes--- a package of 12 boxes is $8.00!  These boxes require no adhesive, just fold on the score lines and fold the bottom together...you are done.

Here are the measurements for the designer paper on the lower box:  two pieces of 3 7/8 X 1 7/8 & two pieces of 1 7/8 X 1 7/8---use liquid glue to adhere to bottom sides of the box.

Then:
*Cut approximately 18" Poppy Parade ribbon - tie around the box handles at the top (fill the box first with your gift).
*Stamp a candy cane (Candy Cane Season stamp set) in Real Red ink on Whisper White cardstock, punch with Candy Cane punch. Punch a 1/8" hole in the top and loop through 12" Garden Green twine, tie in a bow Tag

*Punch a bow (Candy Cane punch) in a scrap of Tranquil Tide Glimmer Paper and adhere to candy cane with a dimensional

AWESOME! Your chocolates or other small gift is now looking like a million dollar gift...presentation is always the most important part of a gift...which would you prefer
*receiving a handful of chocolate  dumped into a grocery bag
OR
*receiving a handful of chocolate in this awesomely cute box?

You can quickly adapt this to any occasion by changing the designer series paper you choose to cover the bottom of the box--birthday, anniversary, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Just Thinking of You Day...etc.

Note: the Santa's Workshop Designer Series Paper is no longer available--there are several alternative papers to choose from in the supply list below.

Below is the Supply list that you'll need to re-create this terrific gift wrap--I've given you several designer papers to choose from for Christmas but you can select any designer paper for all occasions!

Remember
*The Holiday mini catalog is good until 1/2/19--HOWEVER, the products are only available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST! The retiring list will be published Wednesday (12/5/18) and when that list is published the supplies will be going quickly. My advice is to order now!

Quick Gift Holder for co-worker, teachers, friends!

Here's a great Quick Gift Holder for co-workers, teachers, friends! I used it for Hot Cocoa Mix and a candy cane...but you can use it for any small gift or a small gift card...what makes it so great is that you can make two of them from a single acetate box. That's right, I just cut one into two and I can make two super gifts--love the easy wrapping as well as the inexpensive but awesome acetate box holder! Cocoa holder

Take a look at the tag--we used that same neat technique as we used Tuesday to create a fun quick double backing. Label closeup

I'll give you the directions and then the supply list so you can order your supplies today.

Remember
*If you place your order online and use this month's Host Code (437B9C7T) you will receive $5 in Stampin'Up! product from me for each $50 in product that you purchase.
*The Holiday Mini catalog will expires 1/3/18--so order what you need now before products become unavailable.

Directions:

1. Before opening and assembling the acetate box, cut the box in half at the halfway point on the long side

Box cut in half

2. Cut designer paper 2 3/4 X 9 5/8, score on the long side at 1/2, 4 3/4, and 5 1/4. Fold on the score lines and slip inside an acetate box and press paper to box sides.

3. Cut approximately 20" red satin ribbon. Secure on the backside of the box with a glue dot in the middle of the ribbon. Tie a bow in front of the box and secure with a glue dot.

4. Stamp verse (from stamps in punch box) in Garden Green ink on Very Vanilla cardstock; punch out. Punch out the punch shape from Real red cardstock and from Gold Glimmer paper. Cut sideways in the middle of each and secure the pieces to the back of the label with glue dots--by moving the cut pieces slightly up and down from the label you will achieve the double background for your label.

5. Punch a hole in the top of the label with the 1/8" hold punch and thread 12" of Garden Green twine through; attach the label to the bow on the box.

Slip in your gift card or gift certificate and you have an awesome packaged gift ready to give!

Quickie Large Gift Card Holder

Today I'll show you how to create a Quickie Large Gift Card Holder! This one is for those gift cards that come in a large cardboard backing--or for a Stampin'Up! Gift Certificate which is what you see below: Full box closed

I offer Stampin'Up! Gift Certificates (any amount) in a lovely hand stamped holder--that fits just perfectly inside this holder as well as the commercial gift certificates. Full box open

Notice that cute little tag tied to the bow...that's created with the punch in the Christmas Traditions Punch Box.  The punch is only available in this gorgeous Christmas tin; it comes with 6 stamps that fit the punch perfectly and with a Real Red and Call Me Clover Ink Spots. The tin is so beautiful that it will become the center of future Christmas traditions.

See the double backing on the tag? That's also achieved with the single punch that comes in the box---see the directions below to understand the secret.

This lovely tin with stamps and punch are only available until Jan 3rd...they are in the Holiday mini catalog.

Snowfall Thinlets meet Silver Edged Cards & Envelopes

Still having a blast with the "November Only" products -- today Snowfall Thinlets Meet Silver Edged Cards & Envelopes! These silver-edged cards are gorgeous, elegant and ready to stamp---no prep work needed. AND....wait for it....the envelopes match the silver edging! You start with a professional look and it just gets better!

Here's today's card... 11-20-18 Snowfall meets Silver edged cards

This is a closer look at those cute tiny snowflakes... 11-20-18 corner

I used the small snowflakes in Snow is Glistening stamp set with Smokey Slate ink...the "white" area just needed something to spruce it up. Then I cut the super large snowflake flake with the die in Snowfall Thinlets (these are to die for...20 dies...ok, ok, I hear ya...LOL). The snowflake is attached to the card front with small dots of liquid glue. Then I stamped the lovely verse in Stazon Jet Black ink on a white banner; attached the banner to the snowflake center with dimensionals. 

These 2 stamp sets, thinlets, and trinkets are only available in November (after 11/30/18 they are no longer available for sale). You want to place your order now so you won't be disappointed if supplies run out. Stampin'Up! advises that these products are only while supplies last or Nov 30th--whichever comes first.

The Silver-edged cards & envelopes also come in Gold--so if you prefer Gold edged cards/envelopes (item #147901) you can pick the one you want.

Remember:
*Place your order before November 30th
*If you use this month's Host Code (437B9C7T) when you check out, you'll receive $5 in Stampin'Up! products for each $50 in product that you purchase.
