A Stitched Nested Label Box Christmas

Hello!  Yesterday I shared a Halloween Stitched Nested Label Box.  You can find that post here.  There is also a video on that post showing how to make the box.  I hope you will check it out.  Meantime, today I have the same box for Christmas!

Snowman Season Stitched Nested Labels Container with Candy by Jo Anne Hewins

This box features the Snowman Season bundle and the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper.   

For the front of the box decorate with a Stitched Nested Label piece of designer series paper.  The saying is from the Beauty & Joy stamp set.  Stamp in Real Red on Whisper White.  Punch with the 1 1/2 inch Circle Punch.  The scalloped circle is cut using the Layering Circles dies.

Stamp the snowman from Snowman Season on Whisper White.   Color in the nose with a Dark Pumpkin Pie Blend.  Add some color to the snowman with a Light Pool Party Blend.  Punch out with the Snowman Builder Punch.

Cut the hat from the hat paper in the Let It Snow Specialty paper.  

Punch the arms from Soft Suede using the Snowman Builder Punch.

The scarf is from the Playful Penguins stamp set.  Stamp in Real Red.  Fussy cut and add to the snowman.  Add to the box.  

Fill a bag with Christmas candy and tie it shut with a piece of the Real Red Curly Ribbon.

One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for October - Spooktacular

Welcome to the One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for October.  This is a Spooktacular event.  So get ready to be frightened and delighted by lots of Halloween ideas!

I am using the Birds of a Feather stamp set for my projects.  Don't you love those birds.  I go for the cute, not scary!

OSAT October Birds of a Feather Card by Jo Anne Hewins

This card has an arm that crosses over the card.  It's really neat.

Start with a card base of Basic Black that measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Cut a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock to 3 x 11.  Score at 5 1/2.  Glue this to the center of the base.  Use Grid Paper to help get this little card straight.  Use the Pumpkin Pie gingham paper from the Regals Designer Series Paper.  Cut this to 2 7/8 x 5 1/2.  Add to the front.

Cut Silver Foil to 1/4 inch.  Butt on either side of the 3 inch card.

Cut a piece of Pumpkin Pie to 1 1/2 x 5 1/2.  Score at 1 inch.  Use the Triple Banner Punch at the other end.  Stamp the banner with the Trick or Treat stamp from Birds of a Feather in the same color randomly.  Decide where you would like to have this arm.  Glue the short end to the back of the card.

OSAT October Birds of a Feather Close Up of Card by Jo Anne Hewins

Cut a Basic Black scallop circle using the Layering Circles dies.  Stamp the pirate bird in Tuxedo Memento Black ink.  Color with Blends.  I used Light and Dark Daffodil Delight, Light and Dark Pumpkin Pie, Light and Dark Highland Heather, and Light Smoky Slate.  Fussy cut.  Put dimensionals on the back of the duck.  Take Silver Metallic Thread and run it around several fingers, slip it off, and lay it down on the dimensionals.  Play with the thread until you get it the way you like it.  Add to the scallop circle.  Glue the circle to the arm.  Make sure that you do not put glue on the parts that stick over the arm.

OSAT October Birds of a Feather Card Open by Jo Anne Hewins

I made a box to go with this card using the Stitched Nested Labels dies.  I found this box originally by Jeanette Cobb.  Of course I had to change a few things to make it my own.

OSAT October Birds of a Feather Box by Jo Anne Hewins

You can get two of these boxes from one sheet of cardstock.  Begin with a piece of Basic Black measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Cut 2 inches off  so that you have a piece of 2 x 8 1/2.  Score this piece at 1 3/8, 2 3/4, 5 3/4, and 7 1/8 the long way.  Score at 1/2 and 1 1/2 on the short side.

I have a video showing how to make the box.  With the measurements above I think you will be fine.

 

Jeanette made the box to hold a 3 x 3 sticky note pad.  She punched a hole on the side to hold a pencil.  I decided that this box needed candy!  I used a 3 x 6 Gusseted Cello Bag and filled it with a candy corn assortment.  I folded over the bag and stapled it shut.  The little skull stamp is from the September Paper Pumpkin stamp set.  Stamp in black on a white scrap.  Punch with the 1 inch circle punch.  Add a frame of Pumpkin Pie scallops with the Layering Circles dies.  Add with a dimensional. 

OSAT October Birds of a Feather Box from the Top by Jo Anne Hewins

I also added a little handle for the box.  Use the new black Scalloped Edge Ribbon.  Use about 12 inches of ribbon.  Punch a small hole, add the ribbon from the outside, tie a knot.  Do that for each side.

So here are the box and card together.

Travel Tissue Holder Box using Playful Penguin

I had one of my Bingo events Saturday celebrating the Holiday catalog.  It was so much fun.  I'll have some pictures at the end of this post.  Along with Bingo games and prizes from the Holiday catalog, we have several Make & Takes.  I want to share one of them with you today.

Playful Penguins Tissue Box by Jo Anne Hewins

I got this box idea from Angie Juda of chick n scratch.  It's her box #4.  Find the template here.  The box fits the tissue 3 pack found at Walmart.  You will need a 12 x 12 piece of cardstock.  You can get 2 from a sheet.

Outside measurements are 4 1/4 x 11 3/4.  Score on the portrait side at 1" on both sides.  Score on the landscape side at 4 3/8, 5 3/8, 9 3/4, 10 3/4.  Cut away the shaded areas.  Round the corners on the lid.  This diagram is directly from Angie Juda's post found here.   I do want to make sure she gets the credit for making the box.  I used Garden Green for my box.

For my decoration, the Stitched Nested Labels Dies were used to cut the stripe paper from the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper.  Since the background of this paper is Very Vanilla, I stamped the penguin on Very Vanilla.  The penguin is from the Playful Penguins stamp set.  Fussy cut the penguin and a hat and scarf.  Attach all to the box.

Playful Penguins Tissue Box Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

I added the penguin with dimensionals.  The saying is from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set.  Stamp in Garden Green on Very Vanilla and cut out with the Layering Ovals Dies.  Cut a coordinating scallop oval from Real Red.  Attach this layer with dimensionals too.

We had fun making our boxes.  Here are a few pictures.

Add a knot of the Garden Green Double-Stitched Ribbon with a glue dot.

Playful Penguins Tissue Box with tissue by Jo Anne Hewins

Now, as you may know, it's not easy to get a lot of one color in 12 x 12 from Stampin' Up!  I actually used a retired pack that was available in an earlier year that was half Garden Green and half Poppy Parade.  My helpers Kaye and Jean came up with an alternative.

It seems that the Dollar Tree has a six pack of tissues that are smaller.  Dimensions can be adjusted for this size to fit our 8 1/2 x 11 paper.  You will be able to still get 2 from a sheet of cardstock.

The dimensions are 4 1/4 x 11.  Score at 1" on each side of the portrait orientation.  Score at 4 1/8, 5 1/8, 9 1/4, and 10 1/4 on the landscape side.  Make as above.

This is my husband John and my granddaughter Sagan.  She came to visit for the weekend.  I had Bingo planned, but I couldn't say no to keeping Sagan.  She came for lunch and then off with Gramps for a little while.

Variations on a Box Inspired by Tina Zinck

As we comb over Pinterest and other sources of stamping inspiration, we can find so many things we want to make.  A while back I came across a picture by Tina Zinck.  She was new to me, but that box!  It was beautiful!  Here is her picture.

I haven't asked Tina for permission to post her stuff.  I hope it's OK.  I just want to make sure that you know this is her creation!  Her post is from June 14, 2019 and can be found at http://www.serenestamper.com/2019/06/magnolia-lane-atc-book-box-video.html.  That's not all.  She has a great video on making the box, found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fwbBbWczd-I&t=90s.  The link is also on her post.

I decided that we would make the box as part of our Luv 2 Create team meeting.  While the box is not as hard to make as it first appears, I was asking a lot.  I sent the links above to them ahead of  time and asked that they have the box cut and scored and the designer series paper of their choice cut.  I also asked that they cut the pieces for the flowers if they had the dies.  I did have a time a day before the meeting that they could come for help with this if needed.  I also told them I could cut for them if they asked ahead of time.  I sent them pictures of my box.  I must say, the team arose to the challenge.  Some came with boxes already made.  Some did not finish their box completely, but just had to decorate.  Everyone helped each other!  After all, that's what stampers do.  I think we all had fun!

Book Box 1

This is my box.  I used the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper.  The flowers are made using the video by Stampin' Up!  Go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XEvRR4TwLpo&t=108s.  I sponged some of the Delicata Golden Glitz ink around the petals.

Book Box Topper

The JOY on the front flap is from the So Many Stars stamp set in the Holiday catalog.

Book Box 3

Here are a few pictures of the boxes made by some of my team.

These were made by Kaye Owenby.

I'm so happy that the team rose to the occasion.  We even got Teresa to spritz and scrunch, and I think she'll even do it again!!!  I'll get more pictures as they finish.  This is what I had for today.

I also want to share that Teresa said she was going to use her boxes as Prayer Boxes.  She is going to give them as gifts for people to write down their prayers and put them in the box.  This will encourage them to pray and give them suggestions in times when prayer is hard.  I think the same could be done with a Gratitude Box!

Thank you Tina Zinck for your inspiration!

I am grateful that you visited my blog today.  I hope that you are inspired, too.  If you need supplies to make your box, I would be happy to help you.

One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop Basic Pattern Decorative Masks

Welcome to the One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for September.  Our new Holiday catalog is live now and we want to showcase it in our hop today.  I am loving this catalog.  I hope you are.  You'll love all the ideas to get today!  You might have just come from Candy's post.  Great!

Today I am using the Basic Pattern Decorative Masks found on page 35 of the Holiday catalog.  These are definitely not just for the holidays.  They are just great patterns for any time!

OSAT Gold Embossed Paste Card by Jo Anne Hewins

Here is my card.  I think it turned out well.

Start with a card base of Merry Merlot that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded in half.

I also have another layer of Merry Merlot cut to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  I used the filigree looking mask for this layer.  I adhere my mask to a piece of grid paper with painters tape making sure to get the mask straight on a grid line.  Slip the card stock layer under there making sure that it is also straight on a grip line.  Tape the bottom of the mask.

Put some of the Embossing Paste on your Silicone Craft Sheet.  It takes a pretty good blob to cover the entire piece.  Mix in some of the ink from the Golden Glitz Delicata Inker.  It also takes a good bit of the ink.  Using your Palette Knife spread a thin coat of the paste over the mask until the card stock is covered.  While you let this dry a little, go wash the craft sheet, mask, and knife.  Do that now!  If it dries on there, well, I warned you!

OSAT Gold Embossed Paste Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Rub the Embossing Buddy over a piece of Merry Merlot measuring 1 1/8 x 4 1/8.  Stamp Merry Christmas from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Versamark on the right side of the strip.  Emboss with gold embossing powder.  Add the strip to the front of the card.  Add 1/4" strips of Gold Foil to the top and bottom of the Merlot strip.

Punch a tree from Gold Foil using the Pine Tree Punch.  Emboss the tree with the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder.  Add to the card with glue dots.

OSAT Gold Embossed Paste Project by Jo Anne Hewins

For my 3D item, I decorated the top of one of the Gold Mini Pizza Boxes on page 13 of the Holiday catalog. 

OSAT Gold Pizza Box View 3 by Jo Anne Hewins

I placed the mask over the top portion of the flat box.  Use painters tape to tape off the mask in line with the sides of the top.  This time I added Merry Merlot ink to the Embossing Paste.  Apply a thin layer over the mask.  Remove carefully.  Wash supplies quickly.  This does take a little time to dry.  Leave it alone for a while.

I added another tree made as above to an oval of Merry Merlot.  The oval was cut using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  Add the oval to the top of the box with dimensionals.

You might ask what is in the box.  Whatever you want!

OSAT Gold Embossed Card and 3D Project by Jo Anne Hewins

This makes quite an elegant gift and it's really simple to make.  I hope you will try it!
