Fun Christmas Gift Using the Peekaboo Treat Bags

Today I have a really cute gift for you using the Peekaboo Treat Bag.  This bag can be found on page 140 of the annual catalog.  It comes in a package of 10, 5 in white and 5 in kraft.

Peekaboo Treat Bags  Real Red and Garden Green Ribbon Combo Pack  Sweetest Christmas DSP  2021-2023 In Color Opal Rounds  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

I filled the bags with peppermint sticks.  I found these at the Dollar Tree.  They were just the right height.  These bags were so easy to make.  I used the Sweetest Christmas Designer Series Paper.  In fact these scraps were all I needed to help me finish up my pack of DSP.

For the window of the bag, I put a 1 1/4 inch x 4 piece of the Real Red stripe paper over the top and a 1 x 4 inch piece just under the window.  I used Multipurpose glue to hold everything in place.  Along the top I also added a 1/4 x 4 piece of the Garden Green stripe.  Another piece of the same went along the very bottom.

Tie some green ribbon from the Real Red/Garden Green Ribbon Combo Pack into a pretty bow.

The tag was cut from Thick Basic White using the Tailored Tag dies.  The saying is from the Brightest Glow stamp set.  Add some green embellishments from the 2021-2023 In Color Opal Rounds.

I decided that it might be nice to add a little more to my package although it certainly would not be needed.

This is so cute, but it does completely hide what's inside.  That means anything could go there!  The Leaves of Holly bundle with the Holly Berry dies were just what I needed.  Cut both the solid and the detailed leaves from Garden Green.  Match up the two and connect them with a glue dot at the base.  Tuck them up under the tag.  Cut both the solid and detailed berries from Real Red.  Glue the two together.  Glue them in place.

Countryside Inn Gift Bag from 2 Sheets of Designer Series Paper

The designer paper from Stampin' Up! is so pretty and has such high quality!  It's a joy to use.  Today I'm using 2 sheets of 12 x 12 paper from the Countryside Inn Designer Series Paper.  You can find this paper in the current annual catalog.

No title (33)


You will need 2 sheets of Countryside Inn Designer Series Paper that are exactly the same.  Score each sheet at 3 along both sides and on the bottom.  Note that my bag has a paper with a specific direction.  Be sure to pay attention to that.  Make a score line 2 inches from the top.  Burnish the folds with a Bone Folder.  The 2 inch score will fold down leaving a decorative border around the top.  The other folds will fold back on the sides and down along the bottom.  These two pieces will go together to make the bag.

The finished size of the bag is 7 inches tall, 3 inches wide, with a bottom  of 3 inches.  I made this bag for my hair dresser.  It's her birthday and I usually give her cards to send to others.  She likes that!

Along the bottom of each bag cut along the score line up to the fold.  On one of the bags only,  you'll cut away both of the lower corners.

I'm going to give you a video showing how to put the bags together.  I made this video around 2 years ago with different paper but the directions are the same.

 

 

IMG_20240305_084900095_HDR

I used the Magnolia Mood dies to add the large flower to the bottom corner.  I cut the flower again cutting away the leaves.  Add dimensionals and then adhere the flower on top of the first.  Cut the small flower from Basic White as well and glue to the upper left of the bag just below the border.

Thanks so much.  I hope you'll use some of that designer paper!  Come on, use it!

Happy Houseplants Kits from the Kits Collection Online Store for Stampin' Up!

Some of the best news is that Stampin' Up! will publish 2 new kits every month in 2024 for the Online Kits Collection!  I'm here to review the Happy Houseplants Kit.  It's one of the February 2023 new kits.  It is a home decor kit making 4 beautiful plant frames.  #163873, $25.

When you open the kit, you'll find 2 smaller packages, the frames and the paper supplies needed.

Happy Houseplants Kit  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create  Just Out of the Box

Here is a picture of the back of the frame.

Happy Houseplants Kit  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create  Back of Frame

The 'glass' is plastic.  There is a coating covering to be removed.  If you use the dimensionals on the pieces as shown, the glass will not lie flat.  I did not use it.

Happy Houseplants Kit  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create  Peel Off Plastic

The frames are a little different color than the other parts.  I like it because of that.  There is a tiny stripe to all the sides when you look closely.

Happy Houseplants Kit  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create  All Supplies From Kit

These are the parts.  The frames are OK for the price of the kit, but are plastic.  The mats could be a little thicker in my opinion.  I would also like to see the 4 background sheets for each plant to be a little more substantial.  There are two sheets with punch outs.

Happy Houseplants Kit  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create  Supplies From Kit

This shows the backgrounds and the punch outs sheets.

The directions are good.  This is a very simple kit that will not take a lot of time.  Each plant has two plant pieces to add and the plant container.  All are added with dimensionals that are included.  I did add more dimensionals that shown on the directions, but there are plenty of them.

Happy Houseplants Kit  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create  Making Snake Plant

The directions show using a pen or pencil to curl the parts of the plant.  I used my Bone Folder.  This kit is truly all inclusive!  Use the directions to help with placement of the parts.  I like how part of the picture is on the background piece.  That adds to the look of dimension.

Happy Houseplants Kit  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create  Snakeplant in Frame

Here is the completed snake plant.  It's very hard to see the subtle stripes.  When I expanded the picture, I was able to see it a little.  When curling the punch outs, look at where they will be.  I curled some so that they would curl under and some so that they would curl up.  I thought this would add more interest.

 

Happy Houseplants Kit  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create  Making Hanging Basket

This shows the hanging basket with one of the sets of leaves already added.  Again, look carefully at the directions for placement.

I felt like this plant gave me a little more challenge on where to place each part.  The stems shown with the first part end up being mostly covered.  It made me wonder why they were there.  I'm sure it was to be helpful.  In this picture, you see some Linen Thread across the basket.  I added that on my own as an extra.

Happy Houseplants Kit  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create  Completed Plant in Basket

I added a bow to the frame.  I chose to add this to some of the other frames.  I'll show you at the end.

Happy Houseplants Kit  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create  Varigated Leaves

This shows the last variegated plant.  The pot is placed on the line.

Happy Houseplants Kit  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create  Completed Varigated Frame

Here is the finished plant.  I wanted to add more to the frames.  There is a video showing how you can add words.  Here is one example here.  I chose not to make a video.

Happy Houseplants Kit  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create  Display of Frames

Here is a picture of my finished frames.  I added Linen Thread to three of the pictures.  I also used the Brushed Brass Butterflies and the Adhesive Backed Dragonflies & Birds.

I'm sure that something could be done to the mats.  As an experiment I tried covering one of them.

Happy Houseplants Kit  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create  Frame with Covered Mat

I apoligize that this paper is retired.  It's from the holiday mini catalog that just retired.  I do think there is some perfect paper in the upcoming Online Exclusives called Flowering Zinnias that would be perfect for this.  I just have other plans for that paper.

To cover the mat, I cut my paper to 7 x 7.  Cut from the center.  On my Paper Trimmer, place the paper so that it is on the 5.  Now cut from 2 to 5.  Turn and repeat on each side.  Place the frame in the middle of the paper and miter each corner.  Fold each side down against the edge.  Once the outside is complete, cut from each corner on the inside to the corner of the mat.  Fold each side up against the edge.  I found the inside to be more difficult.  The outside would be hidden a little by the frame.  I tried to do this without securing the paper so I could take it all off if unsuccessful.  It was hard to do it that way.  That's why I suggested doing the outside edges first.

This kit is great for someone who feels they aren't crafty.  There's no stamping.  The frames should be completed in about 30 minutes I would say.  They are very pretty and would dress up a wall or bookshelf nicely.  I think one would be perfect as a gift for someone in a nursing home since it can stand.  There is hardware to hang as well.

NC Demo Blog Hop for October A Little Something

Welcome!  I'm so glad that you are here!  You are in for a treat as you take the NC Demo October Blog Hop.  The theme is A Little Something.  We are heading into the holiday season! Parties, dinners and just getting together with friends and family. This is a perfect time for us to share some ideas for hostess gifts and/or party favors!

May be an image of jewelry and text that says 'a little gomething'

 

I admit this theme had me stumped.  I just didn't have an idea.  Some days are like that.  Then I remembered that Stampin' Up! has already taken care of this.  If you look on page 126 of the annual catalog, you'll find the Scalloped Gift Card Boxes #161751.  You get 10 of these for $7.  I decided to take advantage of this.  These boxes fit together with no adhesive needed.  There is a second piece for the gift card that fits inside.  This you can adhere if you wish.

Scalloped Gift Card Boxes  Box  Merry Bright Bundle  Merry Bold and Bright DSP  Simply Elegant Trim  Vellum Cardstock   Silver and Gold Adhesive Backed Glimmer Paper  Melon Mambo Granny Apple Green foil Sheets  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

I had so much fun using the Merry & Bright Bundle for this card.

Our hostess will be so happy!

First of all, let me say that I took some inspiration from our September-December Mini catalog page 9.  I love all the samples in our catalogs.  They are a great starting point when you are stumped!

To decorate the box top, I started making my lightbulbs.  Get some Vellum Cardstock and color one side of it with a Dark Melon Mambo Blend and another section with a Dark Granny Apple Green Blend.  I cut out the bulbs from the other side but I'm not sure that that matters using the Merry & Bright dies.  Cut out three of each color.  For the top of the bulbs, use the Melon Mambo and Granny Apple Green 12 x 12 Foil Sheets.  Again, you'll need 3 of each  color.  The filaments of the lightbulbs are cut out using a brand new product.  It's part of the new Online Exclusives beginning for everyone on November 7th.  It is Silver & Gold 12 x 12 Adhesive Backed Glimmer Paper.  It was so easy to adhere these with the sticky already on the back!

Use the silver trim from the Simply Elegant Trim Pack.  Make a knot and adhere with half of a rolled up glue dot.  Thread the bulbs through the trim and position them.  Add a glue dot behind the top of the bulb.  You can also add a glue dot behind the filament.  Secure the other end of the silver trim.

Scalloped Gift Card Boxes  Color Embellishment  Merry Bright Bundle  Merry Bold and Bright DSP  Vellum Cardstock   Silver and Gold Adhesive Backed Glimmer Paper  Melon Mambo Granny Apple Green Foil Sheets  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

Color some of the Neutrals Adhesive Backed Sequins with the dark Melon Mambo and Granny Apple Green blends.  For some reason I just couldn't stop adding these.  They just might be a little overdone.  I decided to add them on the scallops of the lid as well.  What do you think?

Did you know that Stampin' Up! has 3 inch envelopes?  They are on page 135 of the annual catalog #159233 called Basic White 3 x 3 Envelopes.  You get 40 of them for $11.  For the card cut a piece of Thick Basic white 2 7/8 x 6.  Score and fold at 3.  Add the bulbs you have already made.  The words are from the Merry & Bright stamp set.  Stamp in Melon Mambo or Granny Apple Green and cut around them.  Add with dimensionals.

Cover the flap of the envelope with the Merry Bold & Bright Designer Series Paper.  Use a piece cut to 3 1/4 x 1 3/4.  Glue to the top of the flap and then trim away the extra from the back.

Scalloped Gift Card Boxes  Merry Bright Bundle  Merry Bold and Bright DSP  Simply Elegant Trim  Vellum Cardstock   Silver and Gold Adhesive Backed Glimmer Paper  Melon Mambo Granny Apple Green foil Sheets  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

What hostess gift doesn't have chocolate???  Eight of the Hershey Nuggets will fit into the box.  Cover with more of the designer paper.  Cut the strips 1 x 3.  To make adhering the paper a little easier, use your Bone Folder to curl the paper.  then use Seal, or even better Seal + down the 3 inch part.  Wrap around beginning on the bottom.

Here the box is filled with delicious chocolate.  The gift card will still fit.

I hope you take the time to visit everyone on the hop.  You'll be glad you did.  Next up is Tracie.  She's the one that thinks up all of our great themes!
