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.

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.

gift boxThis little Christmas Gift Box is just right for a couple of cookies, candies, or jewelry.

The box is made using Stampin’ Up! Square Pillow Box Thinlits.  The set comes with two square thinlits that can be used for windows.  It also includes a few small seasonal thinlits to help embellish your box.

I chose to decorate with a little tree from the Peaceful Pines stamp set and a label,  The label has a tiny snowman made with circles from the Owl Builder Punch and the 1/8″ Circle Punch.  The little hat and arms are cut from small scraps of Basic Black card stock.

The baker’s twine wraps around the box to help keep the end flaps closed and finishes with a small bow.

Remember!  I will be posting holiday projects every Friday.  “Like” Paper Crafts Obsession on Facebook so you will get notifications of each holiday project posting.

Petite PurseFan Fair & Rose Petite PurseThese Petite Purse craft die designs are so adorable and great fun to give and receive.  They can be used as unique small gift boxes or treat boxes.

They are made with the Petite Purse Bigz L die from Stampin’ Up! and the Big Shot Die-Cut Machine.  You cut them out using whatever card stock or Designer Series Paper you like and add accessories.

For the first Petite Purse Gift Box, I wanted an elegant look.  I used Basic Gray card stock and added Fan Fair Designer Series Paper over the entire flap.  I added a White Organza ribbon rose.  I also added the Organza ribbon to the handle.

On the second Petite Purse Treat Box, I used Comfort Cafe Designer Series Paper and Pool Party card stock to add a scalloped edge around the front flap.

If you haven’t already discovered the joy of using the Big Shot, you are missing out.  I use my Big Shot every day for most of my crafting projects.  Once you start combining the Big Shot with the available dies, embossing folders, framelits, edgelits, and sizzlits and then the endless variety of materials you can use… WOW.  It has truly transformed how I craft.

The Petite Purse die design can be used to make a great many projects.  Let your imagination run with the possibilities.  Click on the Catalog icon on the right to browse through the catalogs for more craft die designs made for the Big Shot.  If you click on the Categories button on the right, you can browse through the Big Shot projects in my gallery.
