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*)

Echo Park Paper: Fill’er Up, Santa! Christmas House Gift Boxes

Today I am looking ahead to Christmas (Ack! I know!) and sharing a set of Christmas House Gift Boxes on the Echo Park Paper blog using the NEW Merry & Bright collection. These would be perfect for filling with treats and trinkets this coming holiday!

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out these boxes using the Cotton Tail Village SVG Set by SVGCuts.com. Even though this set was meant for Spring/Easter … the house is fun to decorate for other holidays! (It would be cute as a Haunted House for Halloween, too, don’t you think?!) Just change up the paper and embellishments, and waaalaaa!
Each box is created from a mix of patterned papers. This first one features the green plaid Jolly Words paper. The lid of this box is cut from the 2×2 Journaling Cards paper and the body of the box is cut from the Merry Presents paper. The smaller patterns of the 6×6 paper pad were perfect for the roof and trim pieces. Elements from the Chipboard Accents and Sticker Sheet decorate the front of each box.

On this house, I stitched together three die cut trees (Merry Christmas Tree Die Set) to create a dimensional tree to add to the front of the house. Simply bend up the layers with your fingers after stitching together. A Chipboard Santa is waving a friendly “Hello!”

In addition to the stickers and chipboard pieces, I used green and red baker’s twine wrapped around the wreath and an enamel dot for the doorknob to add additional texture. There are even glittering gems (purchased from the Dollar Tree) lining the roofline! These are the kind of details that make projects like this so much fun to create!

American Crafts: Summer Beach Tote for Teacher

I used to work in the office of a junior high school back when I was in college, and if there is one thing I learned, it is that teacher’s are counting down the last few days of school until summer just like the kids are.
Today I have a fun thank you gift for your child’s teacher with a summer theme.
I’m pretty sure teachers are tired of seeing pencils, crayons, and notebook paper by the time May rolls around … and so for my teacher gift idea, I decided to create a Happy Summer Beach Tote using the Amy Tangerine Sunshine & Good Times collection.
Jana Eubank American Crafts Teacher Gift 2 600
I used an electronic die cutting machine to cut out the pattern for the tote using the Flutter By paper for the body of the bag and the Let’s Hug paper for the blue accents.
Inside the bag, I am going to tuck a cute pair of flip flops, a pair of sunglasses, a bottle of sunscreen, and a gift card to a bookstore, so that my child’s favorite teacher can kick back at the pool with a good book or magazine. A cute beach towel would be a fun addition, too!

The Sunshine & Good Times tassel looks so CUTE hanging from the handle! I added the banana Inflated Ephemera for a tropical vibe. I will also add this cute “Have a Great Summer” tag I created using the 6×6 paper pad, washi tape, and gold glittered Thickers.

My daughter is writing a note of thanks to her teacher using this cute “Thank You” card from the Sunshine & Good Times Card Kit. We added a few Mini Icon Puffy Stickers to the front and then used the included confetti acetate sheet behind the sentiment window. I love that even the envelopes are cute complete with decorative seals!

There you have it! An adorable gift that any teacher is sure to love. Who’s ready to go to the pool?! I know I am!

I spotted this cut file for a Vintage Car by Cre8tiveCutz.com awhile ago and thought it would make the cutest centerpiece for a wedding celebration! I couldn’t wait to cut it out using the papers from the Just Married collection.

The label stickers from the Element Sticker sheet make perfect license plates!

The side of the car is decked out with lots of flowers, a banner, a beautiful wedding cake, and a sign for the Bride and Groom. Some of the flowers get a bit of added dimension with Enamel Dot flower centers. A few sprigs of greenery created with the Spring Greenery Die Set are tucked behind each flower cluster.
