Carta Bella Paper: Stocking Stuffer Gift Boxes

Hello, papercrafters! The first thing my kids dig through on Christmas morning is their stockings. Sure, they love the treats and candy … but their FAVORITE part of opening their stocking is opening the small gifts they discover inside. This year I am going to use the Carta Bella Holiday Gold Foil Cardstock collections to create small stocking-stuffer-sized gift boxes to hold their treasures!

I used an electronic die cutting machine to cut out the pieces for the boxes. They are simple to put together and take no time at all! Even the bows are cut from the gold foil cardstocks!

For this box, I used the Cream Snowflake Flurry Gold Foil Cardstock for the body of the box and then added a bow cut from  Red Merry Christmas Words Gold Foil Cardstock.

I reversed the patterns on this box, using the Green Merry Christmas Words for the body and the Red Snowflake Flurry for the bow.

Echo Park Paper: Oh, Holy Night Card

I love how the Echo Park Paper Oh Holy Night collection captures the peace and serenity of the Christmas season. It’s the perfect collection for creating a card for that special someone on your holiday card list.

The focal point for this card is the fussy-cut angel and wreath cut from the 4×4 Journaling Cards paper. I used the Stitched Rectangle Die Set to cut two panels of Christ Is Born paper (stars) and All Is Calm paper (maroon snowflakes).

Below the angel is a Bethlehem city scape cut from the Border Strips paper. A tan ribbon wrapped adorned with a button is wrapped around the bottom of the card to add softness.
I used the Gold Shimmer Cardstock to die cut the “Oh Holy Night” sentiment and Bethlehem star with the Oh Holy Night #2 Die Set. The subtle shimmer of this beautiful paper is the perfect finishing touch!

Echo Park Paper: Santa’s Workshop Gable Gift Box

Hello, friends! I’m back today to share an idea for wrapping up those holiday treats this Christmas. I used the Carta Bella Paper Santa’s Workshop to create this roomy gable box, perfect for a batch of cookies, loaf of bread, rolls, or whatever goodie you would like to take to a neighbor or friend!

I added a handcut a snowbank from Ultra White Felt Designer Cardstock for the front of the box, so that the chipboard Santa and reindeer had a place to park the sleigh. I cut the “M-E-R-R-Y” letters out from the banner stickers and used foam dots to pop them up above the large “Christmas” word sticker along the top of the box. A couple of chipboard ornaments fill out the top right corner of the box front.

I placed the To/From die cut (Frames & Tags Ephemera) on top of the cheer red/white striped panel (Season’s Greetings paper) on the top of the box. A gingerbread boy sticker is waving “hello!”
I used my Silhouette Cameo machine and the “Poinsettia” cut file by Echo Park Paper (Design #96543 in the Silhouette Design Store) to create the blue poinsettia to the right of the tag. The blue paper is from the 6×6 paper pad and matches the rest of the collection perfectly. I used Classic Green Felt Designer Cardstock for the leaves. The flower center was created using the Gold Shimmer Designer Cardstock and a flower punch a yellow flat-back pearl stickers from my stash.

Anytime I give a gift, I like to write a short note to go with it, so I created this small, coordinating enclosure card using the scraps I had left on my desk. I used the Merry Christmas Decorative Tape adhered to a scrap of white cardstock as a quick-and-easy sentiment. (On a sidenote, wouldn’t this tape be GREAT to make sentiments for all of your Christmas cards this year?! Just sayin’ … *wink*)

Carta Bella Paper: Christmas Eve Scrapbook Page

If there is one thing that gets me excited for Christmas each year, it is seeing the new Christmas collections by Echo Park Paper and Carta Bella Paper! The Carta Bella Paper Christmas collection was the perfect match for this photo of my kids sporting their Christmas jammies last Christmas Eve.

I used the 4×6 Journaling Cards paper for the background of this page. I LOVE this pattern! I wanted it to fade out a little bit around the page elements, so I used my finger to smudge white gesso around the paper layers, but left the outer edges uncovered.

I used the “Christmas” letter stickers from the Sticker Sheet combined with a die cut “merry” word for the title. The title is anchored by strips of patterned paper cut from the Gift Tags paper (green text pattern) and the Border Strips paper. I also added a few die cut snowflakes (Celebrate Christmas – Christmas Day Snow Die Set) accented with the decorative brads.

I added my journaling to a block cut from the 4×4 Journaling Cards paper and then decorated the spaces to the left and below with Chipboard Accents, a die cut stocking (Santa Stocking Die Set), and Stickers.
(Sidenote: The packaging for the Santa Stocking Die Set doesn’t show a piece to create the cuff of the stocking, but it does actually come with one … so three dies total … just in case you were wondering! 🙂 )
