Santa’s Sleigh Christmas Tree Christmas Card

Santa's Sleigh Christmas Tree Christmas Card

Can you tell the difference in these two Santa’s Sleigh Christmas Tree Christmas Cards?  I found this sample in a magazine we Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators receive from Stampin’ Up! quarterly, in an issue from last year, when the Santa’s Sleigh Stamp Set was new.  The sample was made pretty much like my card on the left. When I looked at it closely and looked at the list of supplies to make it, I was surprised that it wasn’t actually made like my card on the right!

The original sample, the card on the left, is actually made with some brown colors rather that metallics like my card on the right. In the sample, one tree is die cut with the Santa’s Sleigh Dies Thinlits out of Soft Suede Cardstock and the other tree out of Crumb Cake Cardstock. The center tree is stamped with Soft Suede Ink and die cut.  The card base and layer are made from the beautiful Shimmery White Cardstock. The center tree is made with this cardstock as well.  There are also some Soft Suede stamped stars and some die cut stars.

Since I originally thought the sample was made with metallics, I made another card with the Shimmery White cardstock.  The center tree is stamped with Versamark Ink and embossed with Gold Emboss Powder using the Heat Tool. The other two trees are die cut from the Gold Foil Sheets and the Copper Foil Sheet.

The center tree on both cards are popped up with both Stampin’ Dimensionals and the new Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. In some cases, even the Mini Dimensionals are too large. If this is the case you can cut along the edges of the dimensional sheet as necessary.

To finish off the card, Linen Thread is wrapped around the card layer. On the metallic card, I tried some other ribbons, but mostly they were too large since the trees take up a lot of space. The greeting is stamped, in both cases, with Soft Suede Ink, although it could also be embossed in gold. In the original sample, the linen thread goes entirely over all the trees (not tucked under the center tree) and the greeting as well was adhered up by the trees and tucked under the linen thread. I chose to just put the greeting at the bottom of the card.

Both of these styles of Christmas cards are very pretty!  I would say using the embossing and foil steps it up a bit. I’m even going to try some other designer paper.  I think you could do many variations with this card!  Just get started and then see where your creativity takes you!  You can copy these samples of the Santa’s Sleigh Christmas Tree Christmas Card and see what you come up with!

Quick and Easy Decorated Christmas Lunch Bag

Quick and Easy Decorated Christmas Lunch Bag

Time is getting short and it’s time to wrap packages (if you shopped already!) so try this Quick and Easy Decorated Christmas Lunch Bag.  You don’t always have to have a fancy shopping bag, a lunch sack or small brown bag from a store will do!

Cut off the top that usually is a little raggedy and has that rough edge. Then start decorating.  Measure the width of the bag and cut your paper accordingly.  Or cut it larger and then trim off the sides if that is easier for you.

For this bag, I just chose a piece of designer paper.  This paper is in the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper package. I just added a strip of Real Red Cardstock at the top and bottom of the designer paper (rather than use a whole piece of Real Red!).

The greeting is stamped in Real Red on Whisper White Cardstock from the Snowflake Sentiments Stamp Set.    You could use any holiday greeting.  I cut it out with one of the Stitched Shapes Framelit DiesThat greeting is layered on a die cut piece of Gold Foil from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.

For the top of the bag, I folded over the top and punched two holes for ribbon.  I chose a piece of the Real Red Tinsel from the Mini Tinsel Trim Combo Pack.

You could dress up this bag even more if you wanted to with more embellishments, but most of us don’t have too much free time for creating at this stage!  I hope you will think of things you already have at home that you can decorate or stamp and use for your holiday wrappings instead of rushing out to the store.  If it only takes a few minutes to make this Quick and Easy Decorated Christmas Lunch Bag, isn’t it faster than a trip to the store?!

Make Your Own Be Merry Christmas Gift Bag

Be Merry Christmas Gift Bag

I was reminded recently that we used to make our own gift bags, like this one that anyone can make with the Be Merry Designer Series Paper.  What a great way to use current designer paper or use up some of that paper you know you are hoarding! This gift bag just takes a few minutes to make, faster than making a trip to the store for a gift bag! And you can personalize it for whatever occasion or whoever you are giving it to!

You will need two full sheets of 12″ x 12″ designer paper…..or cardstock, if you prefer. Score each at 3″ on each of three sides and at 2″ on one side. Now, if your paper has a pattern, pay attention to which way everything is going. For example, since the one side of this paper has the trees all going in one direction, I had to think about the 2″ scored portion folding over at the top of the tree page, not at the bottom. The side that is scored at 2″ is the portion that will get folded over to show the pattern on the other side of the paper.  I wouldn’t want my trees to be upside down.

With both papers scored the same way, on one sheet, cut out the outside bottom squares. On the other paper, cut horizontally on the bottom score line just up to the vertical score line.

Scoring for Gift Bag

To make the bottom of the bag sturdier, cut a 3″ x 6″ piece of cardstock or light cardboard. This will go at the bottom of the bag in between the two bottom layers. Fold the bag on the score lines and see how it will fit together. Adhere the piece of cardstock actually to the front side of the bag at the bottom which will be folded underneath and will be sandwiched in between the two bottom pieces.  You will see when you assemble!

Use a strong glue to hold the bag together.  Fast Fuse is great or Tear & Tape, or at least Multipurpose Liquid Glue. If you use SNAIL Adhesive, put the adhesive on both pieces you are gluing together so that the strips of adhesive will intersect.  This will make it stronger.

Assemble the bag, paying attention to which side will be the front, so the folds are facing the front and not the raw edges. Punch four holes in the top for a ribbon handle if you like. Make a tag to tie on!

Once you make one of these Christmas gift bags, you almost won’t be able to stop making more! Pretty quick and easy to make your own Be Merry Christmas gift bag or use any paper you have!

Quick and Easy Christmas Candy Gift Treat Box

Quick and Easy Christmas Candy Gift Treat Box

If you need some extra little gift for someone or a stocking stuffer, how about this Quick and Easy Christmas Candy Gift Treat Box! This has been one of my favorite things to make ever since I saw the idea! What could be easier or more fun than wrapping chocolate candies in a 1″ x 3″ strip of designer series paper?!  Then put them in some kind of bag or container that you have decorated as cute as can be!  Remember, presentation is everything!

To showcase my covered chocolates, I put them in a Clear Tiny Treat Box.  I tried to fit them in there “decoratively” and finally decided on a bit of shredded paper at the bottom and 7 candies. To take up some space, I cut up scrap computer paper and wadded it up, pulled it apart, wadded it up, pulled it apart, until I finally felt like it was crushed up well enough.  I usually use the Crimper tool from long ago to crimp the strands of paper.  This way you don’t have to rush to the store to get some of this stuff!  Just make your own!

Since the candies were decoration in themselves, I just tied some Cherry Cobbler 1/4″ Double-Stitched Ribbon around and added a bit of Silver Tinsel.  Then I stamped the “Merry Christmas” greeting from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set (one of my favorites!!) in Cherry Cobbler ink. I punched it out with the Classic Label Punch.  I had actually tried the Everyday Label Punch first, but decided just a very small greeting was fine. I snipped off the pointed ends of the punched greeting and just adhered it to the top of the Tiny Treat Box. Done!

Obviously, you could use this idea for any occasion or no occasion, just a gift! Use birthday paper, Valentine, Halloween, patriotic, whatever. Love these Tiny Treat Boxes!  They are great for quick and easy treats!

Don’t forget to check out the Year-End Sale at Stampin’ Up!  The retiring Holiday Catalog products are listed, although not on sale, so you can get them while supplies last.

Get out your designer series paper scraps or cardstock, buy some chocolates at the store (uh, craft supplies, of course!), and wrap to decorate! Time will be getting short and you know you will want some little gifts handy, so try this Quick and Easy Christmas Candy Gift Treat Box and make some extras!

Quick & Easy Christmas Tags to Make and Christmas Mini Pizza Box

Christmas Pizza Box for Christmas Tags

Did you notice the cute little Mini Pizza Boxes in the Holiday Catalog?  Make an assortment of Christmas tags and decorate a mini pizza box to hold them and give to a friend! This is what I did the other day when we were going to be seeing some friends who were in town. I could have planned ahead since I had advance notice, but better to just wait until the afternoon before dinner and fly by the seat of my pants! Not that there is anything wrong with that, but I was rushing so much it was hard to concentrate on my own ideas and pretty much copied ideas I was seeing online without giving it too much thought.

The Mini Pizza Boxes come flat so they store easily.  You assemble by folding on the scored lines when you are ready to use them.  Very easy. There are MANY ways to decorate these cute little boxes.  I chose something simple and that went along with one of the tags I put inside.  Since the boxes are only about 3 1/2″ in length and width on the inside, I had to make the tags pretty short.  I used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and put the scalloped top edge at the 3 1/4″ mark on my Paper Trimmer and then trimmed the length and they came out the perfect size to fit inside the box.  These boxes are also perfect for little 3″ x 3″ note cards!

To decorate, I just used a square of a striped pattern in the Be Merry Designer Series Paper package.  I stamped and punched the reindeer from the Cookie Cutter Christmas Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch. Of course he had to have a Red Glimmer nose punched with the 1/2″ Circle Punch.  The greeting is stamped with the Watercolor Words Photopolymer Stamp Set and punched with the Everyday Label Punch. I added a bow with the fun Red Mini Tinsel Trim.

Christmas Tags to Make

I made this assortment of Christmas tags with various papers, punches, die cuts, and stamps!  One is even made with retired products because I looked in my little box of scraps and found that tag partially made!  Just look through your currents products and papers and see what you can come up with. You might even have retired things you want to use.  Now is the time to make things like these tags to be ready to go when you wrap packages. If you wait until you are wrapping, you will not stop and make tags!  And you probably only want to make these for special gifts, if you give a large quantity of gifts like I do!  Once you come up with an idea, I recommend making maybe 5 of the same tags at once, as long as you have the supplies out and idea!  I recommend this with cardmaking too!  Might as well make more than one of the same card because we know we will eventually use it and good to have a stash on hand!

Easy Christmas Gift Bag With Paper Scraps

Easy Christmas Gift Bag With Paper Scraps

Now that you’ve done your Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping, it will be time to wrap all the Christmas gifts, so maybe this Easy Christmas Gift Bag With Paper Scraps will give you an idea of how to decorate your own gift bags!

You can either save the cute little shopping bags you might get at certain stores and shops, or you can purchase plain kraft or colored shopping bags at the craft store. This one I did is a little smaller than usual because it is from a makeup purchase.  It is a beautiful white bag with nice handles, but of course it has the makeup brand emblazened on the front and back. All I had to do was cover what was imprinted on the bag, front and back, with cardstock and decorate the bag!

I saw an idea like this one on Pinterest using washi tape, but I chose to use strips of paper from the Be Merry Designer Series Paper.  This is a one of those great ideas for using up scraps of paper!  I measured mine carefully, cut 1/2″ wide strips of the Cherry Cobbler patterns of the Be Merry paper, and then cut them down lengthwise to make the tree shape.  Honestly, you could be less careful in measuring and have a much more unstructured paper tree.  The tree trunk is a strip of Crumb Cake Cardstock.

The star on top of the tree is die cut with the Stars Framelits Dies (retired, unfortunately!).  You can use any star punch or die you have or cut one by hand.  I used the Red Glimmer Paper for the star to top the tree.

The greeting on the tag is stamped from the Labels to Love Stamp Set.  It is die cut with one of the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.  Then it is layered on a piece of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock cut with the oval in the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. I punched a hole in the top of the tag and tied it on to the bag with the Whisper White 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon, then tied a bow on the bag with the Cherry Cobbler 1/4″ Double-Stitched Ribbon.

You could easily make a Christmas card the same way!  Click here to see one I made last year in the same manner but with washi tape!

This is the best way to recycle bags of almost any kind, actually!  Just decorate with paper scraps or stamping to personalize the bag for the occasion or the person!  So many possibilities! Make it simple or embellish it a lot. Dig around in your supplies, old and new, and see what you come up with!

Since the back of this bag also had the company name on it, I covered the name with a piece of the Be Merry Designer Paper layered on a piece of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock just cut in a rectangle, no decorating.  Super easy and makes it all look nice.

Look through your bag of bags like I have and see what you can make with this Easy Christmas Gift Bag With Paper Scraps as inspiration!

Make an Easy Triangle Box For a Treat With Year of Cheer Paper

Year of Cheer Triangle Box Side

If you need a cute little gift box for a treat or small gift, try making this easy triangle box with the Year of Cheer Designer Paper. I learned to make this triangle box a long time ago and it is SO easy!  You can vary the size, decorate it for any kind of occasion, make it as plain or simple as you want….it’s up to you! And did I say it was quick and easy?!

My sample starts with a piece of the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series PaperThis is beautiful paper with foil designs, one-sided, and perfect for special cards and projects. I used a  piece of paper cut 5″ x 10″.  All you have to do is score the paper at 5″, then mark on the short ends the center spot which would be 2 1/2″. Score from the 5″ score line to the center mark on the short ends on each side on each end.

This is what the scored paper will look like:

Triangle Box Scored

Fold all the score lines and practice folding into the triangle box shape. Then on each end you will need to punch holes so that you can tie all the ends together once you put the contents inside.

Here is one of my older posts with a diagram of how to score the box. You do the same thing even if the size is a little different.

Year of Cheer Triangle Box Front

To decorate this triangle box, I embossed a snowflake image from the Cheers to the Year Stamp Set with the Heat Tool and Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I punched out the snowflake with a Circle die that fit around it with a Silver Foil scalloped circle die. After adhering these two pieces together, I layered that piece on a piece of Silver Foil punched with the Pretty Label Punch.  I embellished this snowflake piece with a piece of Silver Mini Sequin Trim and Rhinestone Jewels.  The triangle box is tied with a piece of Mini Tinsel Trim.

Make an Easy Triangle Box For a Treat With Year of Cheer Paper for a small gift or a candy treat inside! It’s easy to make and the Year of Cheer Paper is elegant for any occasion!

Paper Pumpkin Kit October 2017 Cards and Envelopes

UPDATE:  These October Paper Pumpkin Kits, Pining For Plaid, will go on sale in the Stampin’ Up! Online Store at 2:00 PM Mountain Time (3:00 PM Central Time) TODAY! Remember, you must be a Paper Pumpkin Subscriber FIRST:  JOIN PAPER PUMPKIN HERE! After you subscribe, you can then purchase ANY past Paper Pumpkin kits or refills that are available. (And you can add any other Stampin’ Up! products to your order as usual.)

These are the two cards you can make in the October Paper Pumpkin Kit, which was already mailed out to subscribers.  These are really easy and fun shaker cards, great for the holiday season!  Not only are the cards cute, but the kit comes with matching envelopes, lined with the same paper pattern as the card base.

The October Paper Pumpkin Kit coordinates with the upcoming November Paper Pumpkin Kit!  This is something new for Paper Pumpkin, to have coordinating kits. This is particularly great for the Christmas holidays when kits are so popular to save all of us time and enable even beginning and non-crafters to make something fantastic with only the supplies in the box and only a little bit of creative time. No figuring out what to make or how to make it or buying supplies.

Watch the video and see how easy these cards are to make! Then read more to find out how to get this kit.

If you missed the October Paper Pumpkin Kit and these cute shaker cards, you have another chance to get this kit! This afternoon, October 23, Stampin’ Up! is adding the kits to the Stampin’ Up!

Past Paper Pumpkin Kits are only available to current Paper Pumpkin subscribers, so in order to purchase these “past” October kits, you must subscribe to Paper Pumpkin first.  After you are a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, you can go to the Online Store, as if you were placing any Stampin’ Up! order, and look under the Paper Pumpkin category. If you are a subscriber, then you will see a sub-category of Past Kits. That is where you will find the October 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit called “Pining For Plaid”.

If you like the October Paper Pumpkin Kit and the cute shaker Christmas cards, you will certainly want whatever is coming in the coordinating November Paper Pumpkin Kit. In order to receive the November Paper Pumpkin Kit, you will need to subscribe by November 10, 2017. However, I think the October kits being released later today (after they get them all assembled) might go fast so I would suggest getting subscribed to Paper Pumpkin right away and then be ready to place your order for the October kit when it becomes available.

Be Merry Christmas Card with Decorative Ribbon Border Punch

Be Merry Christmas Card with Decorative Ribbon Border Punch

I love this cute little bitty reindeer pattern in the Be Merry Designer Series Paper package. This is a simple card to make, but the Decorative  Ribbon Border Punch makes it look pretty fancy.

Since one of the coordinating colors for the Be Merry Paper is Cherry Cobbler, I used that for the card base. I cut the designer paper 3 1/4″ wide x 5 1/2″ long so I would have space on each side. The Decorative Ribbon Border Punch makes it easy to add a fancy edge along the designer series paper panel.

The greeting is stamped with the Snowflake Sentiments Stamp Set.  I love the font in this stamp set! And it comes with a couple of nice sentiments to stamp INSIDE the card, plus a “To: and From:” plus snowflakes! The Bundle includes the stamp set plus Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits Dies.  These dies are beautiful but you can use the stamp set on its own.

I used the Big Shot and the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies to die cut the greeting plus make the scalloped oval in Whisper White for the bottom layer. The Cherry Cobbler layer is die cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  Love those! And for one final step, I added a small bow with a Mini Glue Dot using the Whisper White 1/8″ Sheer RibbonThis is a very narrow little white ribbon, perfect for a card like this when you just want a little something!

Don’t forget!!
