Hot Chocolate Holder Featuring Mini Jam Jars Facebook Live 9.8.2021

So glad to see you today!  Last week I blogged a hot chocolate holder using the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper. It featured the use of the Mini Jam Jars found in the annual catalog.  There was a request for a video.  Thanks for that.  It's nice to know what you want!  For the video I used different products.  I used the Nature's Meadow Designer Series Paper.  I think it turned how very well!  I've also used the Nature's Harvest bundle.

The fall is also a time of gift giving and showing others how thankful you are for them.  It may not seem like it right now but cooler weather will be on the way.  Hot chocolate is always a great idea!

If you want the measurements for this project please go here to my earlier blog post.  It's all there!  I also have links for the Hot Chocolate I ordered and for the wooden spoon I used.  These links are also on my YouTube video!

Here's the video!

3D Free Project Thursday Mini Jam Jar Hot Chocolate Gift

Welcome to my first 3D Free Project Thursday.  I'm so excited to be a part of this team.  

3D Thursday Free Project Thursday

For my project using the Mini Jam Jars, I made a cute treat perfect for holiday gift giving.

3D Thursday Hot Chocolate Box by Jo Anne Hewins

To make my holder I needed a couple things from the outside.  Let's get that done first.  For the Hot Chocolate, I ordered from Amazon Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Hot Cocoa Mix, 0.85-Ounce Packets (Pack of 10).  For the spoons, also from Amazon, Perfect Stix - Green Spoon 110-100 Green Spoon 110 Birchwood Compostable Cutlery Taster Spoon with Concave, 4-1/2" Length (Pack of 100).  The wooden spoons came in a pack of 100.  The are 4 1/4 inches tall.  They cost $11.09.

For the chocolate holder the Early Espresso card stock measures 5 7/8 x 5 7/8.  Score at 1 1/4, 1 1/2, 3 7/8, 4 1/8.  I darkened the lines so you can see them.  Add a piece of Tear and Tape to the back and close. 3D Thursday Chocolate Holder Tear and Tape by Jo Anne Hewins

You'll need 2 pieces of designer paper measuring 2 1/4 x 5 3/4.  I used the Painted Christmas DSP.  Add to each side.  You can lean the rectangle to one side to get a flat surface.

3D Thursday Chocolate Box Words HOT and CHOCOLATE by Jo Anne Hewins

Use the Playful Alphabet dies and the Love You More Than dies to cut the words.  I used Adhesive Sheets on the back of the espresso paper so my words turned into stickers.

I folded the chocolate packet to fit into the holder.

Use the Christmas Season bundle to add some holly to decorate.  I used Evening Evergreen and Real Red pads.

Now we'll tackle the bottom box.

The measurements are 3 7/8 x 10.  Score at 2 3/8, 4 3/4, 7 1/8, and 9 1/2.  Turn the card stock and score at 1 1/2.  For this box the bottom is the larger pieces.  Trim up to the score line and trim away the little side piece.

Add designer paper measuring 1 3/8 x 2 1/4.  You'll need 4.

Add a piece of Tear and Tape at the end.  On the back add more Tear and Tape.

Adhere box.  Adhere the side first.  Flip up the panel with no tape first for the bottom.

Use more Tear and Tape to attach the back of the chocolate holder inside the back of the box.  It should fit perfectly.

3D Thursday Chocolate Jam Jar by Jo Anne Hewins

I added a few ingredients that make make the hot chocolate just a little better to the box, mini marshmallows, chocolate morsels, and some crushed peppermint.  My peppermint did not crush very well.  I think it's just too humid here in NC.  Later I thought that I should have put them in the freezor first.

For the lid I used the Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper from Sale-a-Bration.  I used the largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circles dies.  Center the paper and press down around the lid to get the shape.  Now add Tear and Tape to the side of the lid.  Center the paper again and press down. 

Use the Christmas Season bundle to decorate.  I added Crumb Cake and Early Espresso pads.  Add the jar to the box.

3D Thursday Chocolate Jam Jar Top by Jo Anne Hewins

For the spoon, I ended up slanting it across the back.  Use a 18 inch length of the Metallic Mesh Ribbon.  Pull one end of the mesh over the spoon and then around to the back.  Do the same with the other end.  Bring the ribbon around the spoon and tie into a bow.

Peaceful Cabin 6 x 6 Frame, a Facebook Live 8.4.2021

We made a beautiful frame on my Facebook Live this past Wednesday using the Peaceful Cabin bundle with the Cabin dies and the Peaceful Place Designer Series Paper.

Peaceful Place Frame Pic by Jo Anne Hewins

Stampin' Up! has done something I haven't seen before.  They have already divided one of the 12 x 12 designer paper into 4 different sections of a 6 x 6 scene.  You could potentially get 4 of these frames from one sheet of 12 x 12 (8 from the 2 sheets in the pack).  How easy is that!

I'll go ahead and post the video and then post the directions below.  Please share the video if you please and subscribe to my YouTube Channel.

 

The frame that I used was purchased and in my cabinet quite a while ago.  It came from Michaels.  It's a 6 x 6 white frame that can display a 3D item.

I keep the really thick backing that comes in our specialty designer papers.  These come in handy.  Cut one of these to 6 x 6 for the back of your designer paper.  I do have one of the old guillotine style paper cutters.  I use this for the thick paper.  Now cut the designer paper in half and then again at six inches.  That's the background for your frame.  Add the saying from Peaceful Cabin to your Stamparatus and stamp in Memento Black.  You want a good heavy stamp here.  Add to the cardboard.  I used Seal to adhere mine.

Take a piece of Basic White card stock that measures 3 1/4 by 6 1/2.  We can trim away some after it is added to the background.  With a Blending Brush and Smoky Slate ink, add color to your paper.  Keep it light.  Decide where you want your cabin to be.  Stamp in Memento Black.  Go ahead and stamp the fence and the fox.  Cut around the cabin with the Cabin dies.  You will have to cut some of the landscape on your own.  Just decide how you want to landscape to go.  Do not adhere yet!

Peaceful Place 6 x 6 Frame by Jo Anne Hewins

For the trees, I stamped one set of three trees and another set of 2, not inking the third.  Stamp on basic white in Evening Evergreen ink.  Before stamping cover the back of the white card stock with Adhesive Sheets.  This will help later.  Cut out the shapes of the trees with the Cabin dies.  Now go back on cut out the detail for the trees with the same dies.  I wanted the detail, but also a solid tree.  I cut out the trees again in Evening Evergreen card stock.  Again, I cut a group of three and a group of 2.  Pull the adhesive off of the detailed trees and add to the evergreen ones. 

Figure out where to put the trees.   I did end up taping the two groups of trees together.  Put dimensionals on the back of the cabin and add it to the trees the way you want it to be.  Turn over and add dimensionals to the back of the trees.  On the part of the ground that is not adhered to the trees are more dimensionals.  This time you will need a stack of two dimensionals.  Add to the background.  Trim away any excess paper.

Add sequins from the Subtle Shimmer Sequins.  

Add to the frame and admire!

One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop Christmas in July

Welcome to the One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for July.  Our theme is Christmas in July.  I'm so glad you are here!

May be an image of flower and text that says 'OSAT ONE STAMP AT A TIME BLOG HOP'

Stampin' Up! has a fabulous July-December Mini Catalog coming to you on August 3rd.  I have an order coming with some great new products.  I don't have them for this hop.  My card and 3D item use products from our Annual Catalog.

OSAT for July Christmas in July Card by Jo Anne Hewins

I'm using the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper for this card.  You can find this 6 x 6 paper in the Annual Stampin' Up! catalog.

Start with a base of Thick Basic White that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, score and fold at 4 1/4.  Cover the entire front with designer paper measuring 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  I used the Evening Evergreen herringbone look.

Add a strip of Soft Succulent DSP cut to 1 1/2 x 4 1/4.

Pull out the Tailor Made Tags dies and cut 2 of them from different patterns of the same paper pack.  I used the largest size die for this.

OSAT for July Christmas in July Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Cut another tag from Basic White using the 2nd largest tag.  Use the Banner Year stamp set that was carried over into the Annual Catalog.  I embossed the saying in gold using my Versamark pad, Metallics Embossing Powders, and my Heat Tool.  Stamp holly leaves and berries using Soft Succulent and Cherry Cobbler pads.  Cut a circle re-enforcer from the gold paper from the Gold & Rose Gold 6 x 6 Metallic Specialty Paper and add.  Add the tags and tie with the gold trim from the Simply Elegant Trim.

Cut about 4 of the stems from the Poinsettia dies using the same gold paper.  Cut these stems apart and add to the card where you think they are needed.  Reserve one of the stems for the 3D item.

Of course you want to add designer paper to the flap of your envelope.  Just glue a piece of paper just a little larger than the flap and trim around to fit.

OSAT for July Christmas in July  3D Holder by Jo Anne Hewins

Here is my coordinating 3D item.  It's a small gift bag perfect for candy, sanitizer, lotion, or whatever you can find.  Make this holder from a piece of 6 x 6 patterned paper from the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper.  Score the paper at 1 3/8 intervals across.  Turn the paper one quarter turn and score at 1 3/8.  Use the Bone Folder to burnish the folds.  On the end where you made only one score trim up on the folds to the score line.  Cut off the tiny little section that's left.  You might want to angle the cuts a tiny bit.  Add Tear and Tape to the smallest area on the side with several score lines.  It's above the same area that you trimmed off the tiny rectangle.  Adhere the sides of the box.  Now pull up the pieces for the bottom of the box.  

Push in the sides of the box at the top and tie around using the gold trim from the Simply Elegant Trim.  I tied into a knot to start.  Be sure to fill your box before you tie it closed!  Add in the gold stem.  Cut the second smallest tag in the patterned paper and one from Basic White in the smallest size.  The gold embossed saying is again from Banner Year.  Stamp the holly leaves and berries on white scrap, fussy cut, and add to the tag.  Add another gold re-enforcer.  Finish tying your bow.

I love how my card and bag came together using some of our Annual Catalog supplies.  Meanwhile I'm anxiously awaiting the UPS delivery of my July-December Mini catalog!

I can't wait to see what everyone else on the hop has created!  Please continue on with the Christmas in July hop.

Thanks so much for joining me today.  I hope to see you in the future!  Let me know if I can help you.
