Looking for great Christmas Gift Packaging ideas? Then you will love Stampers By the Dozen's November blog hop. We are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world, sharing our creativity to help inspire you.
My projects were inspired by the wonderful acetate products that Stampin' Up! has to offer. Let's face it, we are all so busy during the holidays, so we can use all the help we can get. I decided to show you how you can decorate the Acetate Card Boxes (item #144628 Set of 10 boxes $6.50) and the Clear Tiny Treat Boxes (item #141699 16 boxes $7.50). Stampin' Up! does the hard work so we can do the fun part.
Starting with the Acetate Card Box, I used the Holly Textured Embossing Folder (item #141634 $7.50), to emboss the front of the box and add a little texture. I love the elegant look it gives to the acetate box. The belly band was created with a piece of 11" x 2 1/2" Garden Green cardstock that I also embossed with the Holly embossing folder. I then layered a 11" x 2" strip from the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper (item #144623) and lightly sponged it with Old Olive Classic ink along with the embossed edges of the Garden Green cardstock layer. The 7/8" Striped Ribbon is one of my favorites from the Holiday Catalog and I loved how it stepped up the look of the belly band. To finish it off I heat embossed the sentiment from the Snowflakes Sentiments stamp set with Silver embossing powder on Whisper White cardstock and die cut it with the Layering Ovals Framelits. I then layered it on a Lemon Lime Twist Scalloped Oval and attached it to the belly band with dimensionals. For a little extra bling, I added 3 Basic Rhinestones to finish it off.
I love the versatility of the acetate boxes and how easy they are to decorate. In addition to being a great way to package a set of cards and envelopes, these boxes also work well for a sweet treat filled with candy or a stationary set. They can be used for gifts for teachers, neighbors and loved ones for the holidays.
The Clear Tiny Treat Boxes are great for small gifts and so much fun to decorate. I chose to use the Reindeer image from the Seasonal Chums stamp set and I used the coordinating Seasonal Tags Framelits to die cut the image with my Big Shot. I colored the Reindeer with my Stampin' Blend Markers using Light and Dark Crumb Cake for the body, Light and Dark Cherry Cobbler for the Bow and Light and Dark Daffodil Delight for the Bell. I just love how cute he turned out.
I layered the Reindeer image onto a piece of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock using the Starburst Punch and punched out a circle from Garden Green cardstock using the 2 1/4 " Circle Punch. Using the 3/8" Silver Metallic-Edge Ribbon, I created a simple belly band around the box and attached the image to the box with Glue dots to the front.
On the opposite side I created the same layers and added a Silver embossed sentiment from the Santa's Suit stamp set on Thick Whisper White cardstock and punched it out with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch. I attached it to the box with Glue Dots.
These cute little treat boxes are great for small gifts like jewelry such as a pair of earrings or a pendant. You can use them to create an Advent Calendar and put a small treat in each one as you count down to Christmas. They are quick and simple to assemble and can be used for a fun family crafting activity. You are only limited by your imagination (or Pinterest).
