Baked Goods belly bandSpreading a little Christmas cheer with Baked Goods Box & Label.  This little box is perfect for giving mini sweet bread loafs, cookies or candy.  Spice up your package with a Merry Christmas belly band.

Add that festive touch to your gift of baked goods by placing them in a handmade box and decorating with a belly band label.

The label is quick and easy to stamp and assemble.  You can add the ribbon to the back of the label and it is ready to wrap around your package and tape in the back.

For the box shown, all you need is a single sheet of card stock.  The sides are 2 1/4″ high and the length is 6 1/2″ and it is 4″ across.  You can adjust the dimensions to make the box smaller.   The box is assembled with Tear & Tape Adhesive.

Stamp the message on Whisper White card stock.  Use the small tree thinlit from the Square Pillow Box thinlits set and cut out the trees.  Layer the Whisper White card stock over a slightly smaller piece of Cucumber Crush card stock.  I used Tear & Tape Adhesive to attach the doily to the Cucumber Crush lace trim.

Email me if you would further information on how to assemble the Baked Goods Box & Label.  Order your Stampin’ Up! supplies 24/7 through my Online Store.

ornamentToday’s holiday offering is a Christmas Star Ornament.

I started out wanting to create an ornament inside the star shape.  It was difficult to stabilize the star shape.  It needs some kind of structure to hold it, so I attached the inside (valley) edges of the star to a circle of heavy paper (the inserts from Designer Series Paper packs) on both sides.

The star shape is created with a 1/2″ strip of glimmer paper.  I attached two 6 1/2″ strips together and then trimmed 1/2″ off one end.  You end up with a strip that is 12 1/2″ long.  Score each 1 1/2″ along the length of the strip.  Accordion fold the strip.  Overlap the two ends and glue together.

The inside ornament is cut from Cherry Cobbler card stock and backed with Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper.

To finish, attach a small strip of Silver ribbon through a hole punched in the top point of the star.

These Star Ornaments are relatively easy and quick to assemble.  Don’t stop with just one.  Make several for your Christmas tree or to give as small gifts or package decorations.

Curvy Keepsakes Gift BoxCurvy Keepsakes Gift Box  is perfect for a small Christmas gift or candy created using Stampin’ Up! supplies.

The gift box is created with vellum specialty paper (Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Vellum) that is colored on the inside with Pool Party ink.  You can certainly use the vellum uncolored or choose your favorite color and brayer it on the inside of the paper.  The color shows off the silver snowflakes.

This little gift box is very easy to cut and put together.  I added a small square of Pool Party card stock to the inside bottom of the box to make it a little sturdier.  Add two oval tags with the sentiment and a double bow to finish it off in style.
