Hauntingly Cute Hand Sanitizer Gift Box

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you had a nice weekend and got a chance to check out the Halloween projects I shared yesterday … a card and a treat box! For some, Halloween is all about the candy, for others, they like to hand out practical gifts.  What would you think about creating something that makes those “practical” gifts more fun?  I have a cute little wrap for hand sanitizers that is quick -n- easy to make.

Let’s begin with the outer wrap.  Start with an 11″ x 3″ piece of cardstock.  Score the cardstock at 4-7/8″ and 6-1/8″ … these measurements will ensure the insert sits nicely in the wrap.  Then punch both ends, this will be used to for your ribbon and to close the top.

Attach a piece of 2-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ of designer paper… I used Monster Bash. We finished off the top edge of the designer paper by attaching a piece of ribbon over it and trimming off the edges.

Stamp your greeting and cut out with a favorite die or punch.  I used the coordinating die from the Spooktacular Bash Bundle and pop it up with the new black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Set your outer wrap aside for now … it’s time to create your inner (inset) piece.  Cardstock should measure 4-1/2 x 2-7/8″ … score at 1″ – 2″ – 3″ and 4″.  Using the smallest of the scallop ovals, place it between the the two score lines closest to the 1/2″ flap. (See photo below).

Once the whole is cut out, you will need to glue the 1/2″ flap to the opposite side to create a box.  The hole needs to be facing up … add glue to the bottom (opposite side with the hole) and set it into the outer wrap between the score lines.  Now you can tuck your Hand Sanitizer into the scallop oval hole.  The Bath & Body Works small hand sanitizers fit perfectly into the oval.

This would make a cute teachers gift, thank you gifts, get well ? Any reason … flu season is coming and why not be prepared and be the cool mom on the block!  This is also a great way to use up some of that designer paper you’ve been hording … lol.

Have some fun creating these cute Halloween gifts for your ghoul friends and then make some more for just for the fun of it … Christmas is coming too!

Last-Chance Products—Discounted Items & Sweet Treats!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have some “sweet” cards and 3-D projects to share with you.  We’re approaching the end of our Last-Chance Products promotion, and in these final days, Stampin’ Up! identified some items they now discounted up to 30%.

The discount pricing will go into effect at 12:00 PM (MT) on Thursday, May 30. I just wanted to let you know to get these discounted products while they last!

Click here to see the list of discounted last-chance products.

Oh my gosh … my club members fell in love with this cute little project we did at our Annual Spring Stamping Retreat, now you can get the goodies at a discount to make them!!

The Sweet Cups are discounted as well as the Sweet Pins & Tags and the Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green Reversible Ribbon!

These cute little treat cups were so easy to make!!  I simply took one of them apart, tossing the bottom, and then opening up the seam of the cut so I could lay it flat onto my designer paper and us it as a template to cut the pattern out!

A coordinating piece of designer paper was cut from one of the circle dies to decorate the top of the cover.  We used the Tombo glue to attach our ribbon onto the sides of the cover … tied a bow ant glued that on as well.

I fell in love with this entire product suite … it is so cute and as I’m writing this blog post, the How Sweet It Is Designer paper and the Sweetest Thing Photopolymer Bundle are still available to purchase!  Check out these cute projects you can create with the Product Suite ….

This bundle and designer paper will be hanging out in my stamp room for a while, not sure I can let it go after it retires. This time of year is a whirlwind … we have to say good-bye (unless you snag it up) and then there is the excitement of the new catalog.  I have several hitting the mail box tomorrow … and some tucked inside orders, and even more ready for pick-up … Do I have yours?

I’ve got more on order so I will have them ready for my Catalog Kick-Off Party … Watch for details coming soon!

Contact me if you have any questions on the retiring projects and/or new catalog. Thank you for joining me today.

Hope your day is a good one!

The Gift of Stamping

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a special project to share with you … a Gift Card Enclosure (or envelope!)  I love to create special enclosures when someone wants to give the gift of stamping by purchasing a Gift Certificate from me.

Yesterday it was one of my stampin’ friends’ birthday, and her husband (a very smart man) wanted to get her a gift certificate, so here is what I came up with for Dawn …

The front flap was created by coloring the Springtime Foil Specialty paper with the Stampin’ Blends. The greeting was cut with the Oval Thinlits dies and the Enamel Glitter dots were added for dimension and a touch of sparkle. The pretty pink ribbon just slides on and off to keep the cover closed.

The envelope was created with a piece of 8-1/2″ x 11″ Early Espresso and a couple of score lines!  The inner piece was cut to add a greeting and room for a signature.  Gently tucked inside is the Gift Certificate.

I can create a special card enclosure for your stampin’ friend, wife, Mom, daughter … sister, you name it! And for any occasion!! I do not charge for the card envelope …. just the cost of the Gift Certificate.

I’d be happy to help you with sharing the gift of stamping with the creative person in your life.

A Happy Birthday to Dawn … and I thank you all for stopping by today.

Enjoy your day ~
