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.

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

Center-Step Card with Prized Peony Suite ~ Video Tutorial

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I so love fancy/fun fold cards, even after nearly 10 years as a demonstrator I still am in awe on what you can do with a piece of card stock!! Center-Step cards have been around for a considerable while but I think it is always nice to dust it off and update it with new colors and products.

The Peony Garden Suite of products have been very popular since its release in June, I have used the 3D peony as the as my focal point and paired it with Daffodil Delight and Cinnamon Cider Card.

Forever Greenery Three Block Pop-Up Card – Video Tutorial

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today I have a really lovely fun fold – it is so impressive but surprisingly easy to make, I have made a video tutorial to help you make one as well.

This fun fold is quite popular but most of the examples I found used 12 x 12 card and needed a custom envelope, which here in the US would have required additional postage – so I footled around to design one that uses a sheet of 11 x 8 1/2 and will fit into the regular 5 3/4 x 4 3/8 envelope!

Angled Z-Fold Card with Dandelion Wishes

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I do love a fun fold – today I have a fun fold with a different ‘angle’ in that the front panels are cut to form a sort of cascade. It has a wonderful impact and may seem a little complicated but with your Stampin Paper Trimmer and a well placed pencil mark to it super easy to create.

I have used Dandelion Wishes Stamp Set as I adore those wispy seed heads, along with one of the 2020 -2022 In Colors ~ Bumble Bee paired with Pacific Point.

Oh and there is also a video tutorial to go with it!
