Gift Packaging

Here in Southwestern Ontario the weather is turning cool and the leaves are falling off the trees quickly.  It is days like this that I start to look more towards Christmas time and the various gifts I can make for family and friends.

Stampin’ Up! definitely helps me create fun gift packaging for unique stocking stuffers.  If you flip through the Holiday catalogue you will find so many fantastic products that you can very quickly and easily miss the Acetate Card Boxes (144628) on page 13.  They almost disappear into the page with the Peace on Earth project in one of the cases.

Todays little creation features these super fun boxes.  Use them to package several cards as a gift for a friend or use them to create fun little gifts.  Again I just had to use several of the fabulous products available in the catalogue.

As you can see I used the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper (144623), the Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Card Pack (144638) and the Foil Snowflakes (144642). Combine these with the Acetate Card Box and it is so easy to put together this cute package.

Now you may be wondering what I put inside? There is hot chocolate and marshmallows and a cute hand stamped Christmas tag.  You can always step it up and add a candy cane and perhaps a card, or some chocolates.  Really though, you can put anything (that will fit), inside these clear boxes.  Since they come bare and clear, you can decorate them any way you want and for any occasion!


Now how fun are these?

Christmas Sampler

While shopping at Walmart quite some time ago, I came across a photo frame that had 4 sections and I thought it would be perfect for creating a sampler. With all the new holiday products currently available, I figured this frame would be perfect to create a Christmas sampler of sorts.

I pulled out my Merry Christmas Memories & More Card pack (144638) and selected the designs I wished to use.  With the 7/8″ Striped Ribbon (144624)available in the Holiday Catalogue, I added a bow to one of the cards and placed it in my frame.  I wanted something that would pop in my sampler and really stand out and this black and white striped ribbon did the job beautifully.

I had my first photo taken with Santa a couple years ago and had the image on a board in my stamp room ever since.  I decided it was time to properly frame and display it, and this Christmas “sampler” was the perfect way to accomplish that.

As you can see, creating a sampler does not need to be overwhelming.  By using a few simple products and a photograph (if you wish), you can create your own in very little time.

Convinced yet that the Memories & More Card Packs are great for more than just scrapbooking?
