Decorated Hand Sanitizer Gift Box – Video Tutorial

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I love little gifts, both giving and receiving them is a thrill! – just a little something wrapped up prettily, given unexpectedly or placed on a holiday or celebration table – just lovely.

When Stampin’ UP! 2020 Aug/December Mini Catalog came out earlier this year it had the Little Treat Dies, perfect for creating and wrapping a little gift. I experimented and found I could get a mini hand sanitizer in one or a couple of those famous chocolate squares! I am sure there are lots of other goodies out there that would fit in as well.

Gilded Autumn DSP Chocolate Wallet ~ Video Tutorial

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today I have a cute decorated chocolate bar wallet, featuring some of the autumn/fall and Thanksgiving themed goodies from the August – December 2020 mini catalog.

I am a big fan of autumn themed colors and ‘things’, pumpkins, leaves, rusty golds and coppers, so I kinda went a bit crazy with this gift~packaged bar of chocolate. Come back tomorrow to see another autumn themed project I designed for a blog hop.

Luxury Box using Forever Greenery Suite from Stampin’ UP!

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today’s project is inspired by Scrimpin’ Mommy – a UK Demonstrator. I was in the mood to do a 3D project with a bit of a challenge and came across the video for this really sturdy and attractive gift box.

While Scrimpin’ Mommy’s sample has a Christmas theme I chose to use the Forever Greenery Suite of products, along with upcycling the chip board that comes with the metallic foil sheets.

Remember that Designer Series is on offer at a 15% discount for October! Click here for more info

DSP Fond Farewell ~ Thank You’s

Welcome back to my corner of the world

I am always looking for inspiration and sometimes that comes from fellow demonstrators!  Due to one thing and another I was not able to send my usual  ‘Thank You’ to my March customers who shopped for their Stampin’ UP! goodies with me.  So when it came to April I knew  I needed to do a something special for them and my April customers.  I found this really great ‘twisted’ packet from Sam Donald so made a bunch of them from several of the soon to be retiring designer series papers.

Pretty Handmade Gift Box

Welcome back to my corner of the world

I make and share  lot of cards on my blog, I was working on some designs one evening and looking for a change and some inspiration and there was some off-cuts of Designer Series Paper on my work bench.  I decided a box would make a nice change ~ so I started with the largest piece of DSP to make the lid then worked backwards to make the base of the box, choosing one of the colors from the paper.

I share the ones I made below but set myself a challenge with the video to create a box for a Bath Bomb from scratch (keeping my fingers crossed all the time that it would work out)

Thank You ~ Gift Card Holder

Welcome back to my corner of the world

As many of you know, during tax season, I work for the largest retail tax preparation service here in the US.  Today would normally be ‘Tax Filing Day’ but this year it has been extended to July 15th, however today is the last day of my 18th tax season.  I recognize the help and support of our people who work the front desk in the office and we have a little ‘whip-round’ to give a little gift to them as a sincere thank you for their hard work, as a paper crafter I cannot just give them the card – it has to be prettied up!

I have shared this style of gift card holder before, if you scroll down you will see a link to the video I made at the time, but today’s one is using current papers and dies.

Easter Treat Basket ~ with Video Tutorial

Welcome back to my corner of the world

I have a little treat basket to share today – I had planned it to be one of the projects for my monthly card class this week but I cancelled it due to the social distancing we are all currently practicing because of the  Corona virus pandemic.

Because we are all keeping our distance from one another it means we are spending time at home – so I decided to share it on my blog today with a video in the hope you can spend some time making one or two for yourself.
