Hello my stamping friends! Welcome to another series of our PPX Crew Monthly Blog Hop! I'm very happy you have stopped by because our Crew is a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who are collaborating to create alternate projects using the supplies (plus, additional supplies) that come with our monthly Paper Pumpkin kits. Each month, my Paper Pumpkin subscribers and members of my Stampin' Up! family of demonstrators receive exclusive tutorials to beautiful alternate projects created by our PPX Crew. Well, now we are creating a 2nd alternate project that is being shared with everyone!
This month's blog hop features the super cute Gifts Galore (November 2021) kit. 'Tis the season for gift giving, so my project features our Acetate Card Boxes that are not just for filling with handmade cards. They're perfect for filling with a mix of chocolates, too. I have used all of the supplies that came with my kit, so I'm going to give several images from the stamp set lots of inky love.
My list of treat packages needed is quite long...lots of teachers, co-workers and Stampin' Up! family members to create something special for. I really love the color palette that is part of the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series paper—Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent, Cherry Cobbler and Sahara Sand make it easy to create gifts for any gender.
To get the most treat packages with one package of Acetate Card Boxes, I cut them in half and created a new topper for the open end. The other end of the box will be secured with the tabs and flap enclosure. Instead of leaving the Evening Evergreen topper all straight and proper, I fancied up the front flap using the scalloped Basic Border Dies. I then matched it up with the same die cut with a pretty pattern of designer paper. Fill it with some designer paper wrapped Hershey Nuggets...and, a fun gift card to boot!
The Evening Evergreen layer is adhered to the inside of the Acetate Box, so I added a piece of Designer Series Paper to the outside back of the box using Tear & Tape. This is to hide the adhesive used to hold the Evening Evergreen piece to the inside of the box.
To hold all the goodies in the box, wrap some Soft Succulent Open Weave ribbon around the flap area and tie in a know. Stamp the gift image with Cherry Cobbler and Soft Succulent ink, fussy cut and adhere to the front with Dimensionals. I did ink the ribbon image in the same coordinating colors as the gift package image, fussy cut them and adhered to the top of each gift. The sentiment was inked with Evening Evergreen, fussy cut and added to the gift arrangement using a mix of Dimensionals and Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
