Timeless Tropical Kraft Pillow Box

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a quick little idea on how to make a super quick tropical gift for someone.  Well, at least the packaging any way. The Timeless Oasis Suite of products can make for a fun package when paired with the Kraft Pillow Boxes.  I am going to share with you how to decorate the pillow box and how to make a tag for it as well.  Here's a look at my quick and simple little project.

Tips & Tricks:

The kraft pillow boxes are a great tool to have in your stash for quick gift giving ideas that you can decorate.  I am sad that they are leaving but I know we are getting something just a great for gift packaging.  As of this posting of the project they are still available in the last chance list on my website.  I started out my project by stamping the large flower in Daffodil Delight Classic Ink and used the matching die to cut it out.  I also stamped three of the large flowers in Pear Pizzazz Classic Ink and cut them out also.  All the stamping was done on a half sheet of Whisper White cardstock but you could use scraps that matches the sizes you need.

Next I wrapped a 2" x 7" piece of the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper around the pillow box and secured it with a little Tear & Tape.  So you could make a lot of these with a little designer series paper.   Once I had everything wrapped I took about 30" or so of the Braided Burlap Ribbon and pulled three of four strands from it.  I wanted a very textural bow that was easy to tie and this was a great solution.  I love the look of the texture from the pieces of the ribbon against the clean lines of the pillow box.

I then started by adding my stamped images to the front of the pillow boxes with Stampin' Dimensionals and Mini Glue Dots.  I then stamped my sentiment and used the Label Me Lovely Punch and punched it out.  But, if you notice the sentiment punch out doesn't look anything like that punch.  Well I used it again and relined up my sentiment piece and punched it out smaller to create a new shape.  I popped this up on Stampin' Dimensionals as well to finish off the pillow box.

Again I am in love with these pillow boxes and very sad that they are on the last chance list.  I think they make perfect gift packaging for last minute gifts or even to pop in a gift card.  If you want to grab some please do so soon before they are gone.  All I can tell you is that they are still listed on the website, but I have no idea how many are available so there's a chance they could sale out any day.  Everything on the last chance list is while supplies last; the stamps are guaranteed to be in stock until May 22, 2020 and they after that they are also while supplies last.

Gangs all Meer Pillow Box - Case the Catalog Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you this weeks CASE the catalog project.  This week I am going to share with you a super cute project from the Saleabration Brochure.  Today's project is a super cute pillow box that makes for some wonderful gift packaging not to mention it was decorated wonderfully for a  Birthday gift.  Casing is the perfect solution if you are ever in need of an idea or looking to improve your skills.  CASE stands for Copy and Share Everything, or Copy And Selectively Edit.  Plus all the Stampin' Up! catalogs are great for ideas, inspiration, and creative sparks.  Here's a look at the todays project.

 Tips & Tricks: 

You're going to need about a 6 1/2" x 3" piece of the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper.  You are going to open the pillow box fill it with your gift and then close the other end.  Add Tear & Tape to one end of the Designer series paper and wrap it around the pillow box secure the other end with the tear & tape.  Stamp the two little meerkats onto the a large stitched whisper white circle.  Stamp the birthday hat in Pacific point ink on top of one of the meerkats heads.   

Color the meerkats with crumb cake ink and a blender pen.  Repeat the coloring process on the ground.  Color the sky with the blender pen and a little pool party ink.  Attach the stitched circle when dry to the pillow box with a couple dimensionals.  
Wrap some of the Bermuda Bay Mini Striped Ribbon around the pillow box and tie into a bow.  Stamp the sentiments on some scrap cardstock and cut them down.  Add to the stitched circles using mini stampin' dimensionals.  Punch a hole in the circle and run some Linen thread through it and tie to the bow.  
And that finishes this super cute project.  I told you this was a super quick easy and cute project.  

You can earn The Gangs All Meer Stamp Set for free during Sale-a-bration with a qualifying order of $50.00.  All of the supplies needed for this project can be ordered in my online store.

Harvest Hello Teacher's Gift

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a super quick and easy project to give to your favorite teacher when you head back to school.  I used products from the 2019 Annual Catalog and some new products from the 2019 Holiday Catalog that will release on September 4, 2019.  I used the upcoming Harvest Hello Stamp Set and matching punch from the Holiday Catalog.  Here's a look at the project.

 Tips & Tricks: 

I used the Kraft Pillow Boxes (#147018) as the base of my gift holder.  I secured one end with Tear & Tape Adhesive (#138995) and a few Mini Glue Dots (103683) just for added security.  I then closed that end and pressed it really well with my Bone Folder (102300) both on the outside and the inside.  

I left to top of the pillow box open so I could slip the pens on the inside.  I could fit five pens comfortably in the box without any issues.  The Craft Pillow boxes are such a great buy for treats because you get ten in a pack for only $5.00 US.  You can not beat that.  I then wrapped about 15" of the 1/2" Granny Apple Green Textured Weave Ribbon (146920) around the pillow box and tied it in a bow.
I created the tag with the Tags & More Accessory Kit (149652).  And, let me just tell you that if you are looking to make a lot of tags for all occasions this is another great buy.  You get 10 tag bases (5 each of 2 designs) 10 layering tags, 3 different thick baker's twines, Copper washi tape, and 10 copper library clips to use on your projects.   So basically you are averaging about twenty-six cents a tag, not bad at all.  And that's only if you are using everything on each tag, which I did not.  When you start pricing things out you can see that the $9.00 for the kit is a super great deal.
I picked one of the Granny Apple Green tags and wrapped a little of the Copper Washi Tape around at the bottom.  I secured it on my project with a little of the Granny Apple Green and White Baker's Twine from the Kit.
I made the apple on the tag using the NEW Harvest Hellos Bundle from the Holiday Catalog which will release on September 4, 2019.  I stamped everything on scrap cardstocks in Real Red, Soft Suede, and Granny Apple Green.  I stamped everything using the Harvest Hello Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink (132708) and then punched it all out using the matching Apple Builder punch (Available September 4, 2019).  I put the apple together using mini glue dots and then used a few Stampin' Dimensionals (104430) behind to secure it in place and then popped it up on the tag.  And, that my friends is my super quick and easy project.
Happy Stampin'
