Craft Project Central Up-cycled Gift Boxes

Hi Stampers, this is my second post for today and I am sharing another project from Craft Project Central for August. Today’s project was created by Christine Miller and you can find her at www.mystamplady.com

 

Up-cycled Gift Boxes

You may throw away or recycle cereal, macaroni, or cracker boxes, but you can turn them into beautiful gift boxes for that next special occasion. See how to use Designer Series Paper and other stamping supplies to turn these plain boxes into gift wrap that is almost as impressive as the gift you are giving. You will learn how to wrap two different size boxes in your favorite patterned paper.

The k-cup holder is a cinch to put together – it could even stand on its own. But adding the other little coffee gift along with that matching card is sure to please and relax even the busiest friend. So, it’s time to enjoy – it’s “Time for a Coffee Break”.

Stampin’ Up! Carols of Christmas Bundle

Today is the day many of you have been waiting for!  It’s August 1st, and ordering begins for the Carols of Christmas Bundle.  Are you so excited?   I hope so, because this bundle is perfect for all of your holiday cards and beyond!  What a perfect day to showcase another card created with the Carols of Christmas Bundle from Stampin’ Up! 

Stampin' Up! Carols of Christmas Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

I just love the large sentiments in this stamp set.  And, if you feel they are too large for your card, you can certainly cut it in half as I did in THIS card.  

I started by stamping the ornament images in Cherry Cobbler, then Garden Green onto a panel of Whisper White.  For the second set of ornaments (Garden Green) I carefully wiped off the last ornament after it had been inked up so that I would only have 2 ornaments hanging to the right of the Cherry Cobbler ornaments. That panel was framed with a little larger panel in Cherry Cobbler card stock with Liquid Multipurpose Glue.  

Stampin' Up! Carols of Christmas Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

Next, I stamped the Deck the Halls sentiment in VersaMark ink onto a panel of Cherry Cobbler card stock, sprinkled it with White Emboss Powder and heated it until smooth and shiny with a Heat Tool.  Once cool enough to handle, I die but it with a scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Framelits Dies. Two narrow strips of the Be Merry Designer Series Paper were cut and framed with strips of Garden Green card stock and then adhered to the lower front of the card with liquid glue.  

Stampin' Up! Carols of Christmas Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

I pulled out a silver Metallic Foil Doily and adhered it to the front of the card, then cut a length of Silver Mini Sequin Trim and adhered it with several Glue Dots.  This panel was adhered to the Garden Green card stock base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Then, the scalloped circle sentiment was adhered over the silver doily with Stampin’ Dimensionals. For the holly, I used Garden Green ink and carefully wiped off the center berries and stamped.  Then, I came back with the berry images from the stamp set and stamped them in Cherry Cobbler ink.  I used the die from the Card Front Builder Thinlets (part of the bundle) to cut them out and adhered them to the front with small dimensionals.  The final touch was to add some Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the centers of the ornaments.  

Stampin' Up! Carols of Christmas Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

More ornaments in Garden Green were stamped on the inside Whisper White panel and I chose the sentiment from the Hang Your Stocking stamp set and stamped it in Cherry Cobbler ink.  The narrow strip is the reverse side of the Be Merry DSP used on the front of my card.

So, are you ready to order the Carols of Christmas Bundle?  

Stamping supplies and card stock cuts in inches will be at the end of my post.
