On the Nineth Day of Christmas...

I'm giving a custom gift box filled with Holiday tags.

this is perfect for the Hostess of the many holiday parties we attend!

and when you open it:


Here's a shot of some of the Tags. You can easily fit an assortment of 20 tags from the Two Tags Die for the Bigshot.


TO MAKE THE BOX:

Disclaimer- this is not my template. It's cased from a template on line that I found out about at my RemARKable stamping retreat in September. I will link back to the original as soon as I can!

Box Base/Wrap: 12 x 12 piece of card stock- cut to 8.5 x 10.5. ( yes you can used 8.5 x 11, but I used the scraps to decorate the box) Score long side 3.5, 5 and 5-1/8 (down the middle). the extra 1/8 helps the box lid open and close properly.

Now scallop your edges with your scallop edge punch.

FOR THE COMPARTMENTS:

Small sections 6x6 piece of card stock scored at 1.5 on all sides. (make 3 if you want a box with 3 sections)
Long section 6x9 piece of card stock scored at 1.5 on all sides.

snip short score lines to form boxes. adhere the 2 boxes to each other first, then attach them to the box wrap.

Decorate and Embellish!

All supplies are stampin up! Tags are made with the Two Tags Die from Stampin Up! and I just embellished them with scraps!

Have a fabulous Day! off to carve the Pumpkins!

On the Fourth Day of Christmas...

I'm giving some really cool Medallion Coasters!





I can not tell you haw FABULOUS these are in person! They are the marble unfinished tumble tiles from Lowes or Home Depot. they come in a box of 12 for about $5 (I think)

I stamped each tile with the Medallion stamp in Chocolate Chip craft ink. My pad was VERY juicy so these were fabulous since the image came out so dark & rich! re-ink your pad if its slightly dry! Bake for 10 minutes at 350.

Since these tiles are so dusty I spray mine (front & back) with a matte sealer from the craft store. A very light mist to control the dust. and don't forget the felt pads for the back!

Since these are so heavy I decided to put them in this cute bucket ( from the $1 spot at Target a few months back) I added felt feet to the bucket as well since its great storage/display for the coasters in someones home! the panel on the front of the bucket is a Monogram label- I think it needed to be a little personalized!

Have Fun making yours!!!!!

ETA: Spray after baking!

On the Second Day of Christmas...

My good friend gave to me- Something for my Best Furry Friend




In this gift set:
a Dog bone picture frame
Jar full of dog biscuits (homemade ones would be a good choice, but I used Milkbones)

For the Frame: (from the $1 store) I Covered a black dog bone Frame with the Night and Day paper. I used a Glue Stick and then lightly sanded the edges. I don't have the Stampin up dog stamp sets so I used My Digital Studio for this and printed it on whisper white.

For the Jar: (from Target) I used Thoroughly modern DSP and made a belly bad. The paper did not reach all the way around the jar so I made the front panel. The dog bone is made with 2 heart punches from the trio heart punch taped on scrap and then I hand cut the bone. the hearts are still on the back.

What Do you think???
