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!
What types of gifts could you add to these darling boxes for YOUR stockings this year?
I have spent the early part of this week in my scrapbook room playing with all of the Halloween collections in my stash. It’s been so much fun! I’m catching up on a lot of pages and getting pumped up for my favorite holiday at the same time. I’ll be sharing these pages with you over the next week or so.
The first one feature the adorable Echo Park Paper Bewitched collection. I thought the florals in this collection were the perfect accent for this page of my daughter and her friend dressed as gypsies last Halloween!
I used my Silhouette Cameo 3 machine and a cut file by Echo Park (Design #214711) for the title. I replaced the letter “a” with the owl sticker and added a witch hat sticker to the letter “b.”
I love when journaling cards have interesting shapes on them to cut out and use as layers. Here, I used one of the cards from the Journaling Cards paper to the left of the photos. It was the perfect spot to anchor the potion bottle, candy, jar and butterfly stickers, too!
I cut the floral/stripe border from the Border Strips paper to use at the bottom, and cut a large circle from the Phantom Pumpkins paper to highlight the main photo. A couple of cute pumpkins and other stickers accent the photos along the bottom.
The purple damask paper is the B side of the Trick or Treat paper and was the perfect pattern to bring everything together on the gray cardstock background.
I hope you’re having a great week!
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.
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.
Wishing you a peaceful holiday season!
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!
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*)
Christmas is a few months away, and that means you have the time NOW to think about how you would like to package up those holiday treats. Don’t rush and do something last minute, … make them look special with this adorable Santa’s Workshop Gable Gift Box
