Ho Ho Ho Christmas Gift Box

Hi Stampers. Welcome to the November, 2018 Blog Hop with Stampin’ Pretty Pals. Holiday cards are done. It’s time to start on gifts and gift wrap. Let the Stampin’ Pretty Pals inspire you with “Anything But A Card” today.

You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal. My project is a Christmas Gift Box that say’s HO HO HO using the large letters framelit dies and Lindor Truffles (could also be Ferrero Rocher or any other round covered candies about that size).

Stampin' Up! Large Letter Framelit Dies Ho Ho Ho Christmas gift box by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The box is made out of Real Red CS in three pieces – top, bottom and insert.  For the top of the box I cut a piece of Real Red CS 4 1/8″ x 10 1/8″.  This piece was scored at 3/4″ from all sides and burnished with a bone folder. Then I snipped the corners and adhered the tabs to the adjacent side. The top of the box is decorated with 8 1/4″ x 2 1/4″ layer of Basic Black CS followed by a 8″ x 2″ layer of Real Red CS.  Using the Snowflake Sentiments stamps set, I stamped the greeting and snowflakes in Versamark ink. (Don’t forget to use the embossing buddy to prevent the powder from sticking where you don’t want it).  I then added Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder, tapped off the excess and heated with the heat tool.

The bottom of the box was made using a 5″ x 11″ piece of Real Red CS, scored at 1 1/4″ from each for the four sides. I snipped the corners and adhered the tabs to the adjacent sides. (Watch the video below to see how I made this gift box).

The insert was created out of a piece of Real Red CS 3 3/8″ x 9 3/8″, scored at 1/2″ from each of the four sides. I die cut 3 “H” letters out of Gold Foil Paper using the Large Letters Framelit dies and the Big Shot. The “O” letters were cut out of Gold Foil Paper using two of the circle dies from the Layering Circles Framelit Dies and the Big Shot. I placed the letters onto the insert to determine where they would go and made marks with a pencil where each “O” would be.  Then using the smaller of the two circle dies used to make the “O”, I cut a whole in the insert where each “O” will be. Each letter was then glued in place using liquid adhesive. I then snipped the corners and adhered the tabs to the adjacent sides. The Lindor Truffles are held in place using a glue dot on each end and adhering behind each “O” in the insert.  The insert was placed inside the box (no adhesive needed).

Here is a video tutorial on the making of this gift box:

Dashing Deer Framed Christmas Art

Hi Stampers. I have been seeing these shadowbox frames with battery operated lights all over Social Media. When I recently had a fellow demo staying with me from out of state, we decided to copy this one that we saw on Pinterest by another fellow demo, Lynn Streifert.

I found the shadow box on sale at Hobby Lobby. The photo mat in the frame was originally in the back of the box, I trimmed it a bit so it would fit up against the glass of the frame.

Using Real Red CS, multipurpose adhesive sheets and the Merry Christmas Thinlit dies I cut out the words Merry & Christmas using my Big Shot. The corner pieces are cut out of Garden Green and Real Red CS with multipurpose adhesive sheets attached using the Detailed Deer Thinlit dies and my Big Shot. (The precision base plate was helpful in getting these to come out with a clean cut.)

I adhered a sheet of vellum CS on the back side of the mat that came with the frame using glue dots. The words and corner pieces were adhered to the frame part of the mat. The deer were cut from Gold Foil CS using the Detailed Deer thinlit dies and my big shot. They were attached to the top of the vellum to give the appearance of them flying though the air.

The village was cut out of Thick Whisper White CS using the Hometown Greetings thinlit dies. I attached the first row of homes to the back of the vellum using tear and tap along the bottom to attache it to the frame. The micro LED lights were also purchaced at Hobby Lobby. (note: you want to be sure to use LED because they product less heat that the other type of lights. We wouldn’t want it to catch fire!)

The lights were attached using glue dots and small pieces of tear and tape (I didn’t take the backing off, leaving it as one sided tape.) We decided to add additional layers of house in the back. To hide the lights below the snow line, I added additional Whisper White CS and used several layers of stampin’ dimensionals between the layers.

I cut a small corner off of the backing of the frame to give a spot for the wire of the lights to go out to the battery pack. Then it was ready for display! Didn’t it come out cute? If you would like to make one, I am listing the supplies used below with links to my online store. I’d be honored if you purchased your Stampin’ Up! supplies from me.

Custom Wedding Bookmarks

Hi Stampers. I would like to say Congratulations to my friend Ashley and her new husband Brian on their recent wedding. I’m sorry that I wasn’t able to be there in person – I saw pictures it was GORGEOUS!! But, I was sort of there in spirit, as she asked me to make these bookmarks for her guests.

These are the bookmarks she commissioned me to make for her wedding. She and Brian were thrilled with how they came out and that makes me very happy! Stampin' Up! Wedding Bookmark Seating Placecards by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations
Each guest received a bookmark with their name on it and the date of the wedding. The colors represented which meal they had chosen. This helped the serving staff deliver the correct meal to each guest.

Ashley chose these colors to coordinate with the fall colors of the wedding. The names were printed onto Smokey Slate CS with my computer and printer using a font that was similar to their wedding invitations. They were then mounted onto Basic Black, Merry Merlot or Basic Gray (based on meal choice).

A swirl was added to each one using the retired Stampin’ Up! set called Everything Eleanor. This swirl was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed using Copper stampin’ emboss powder.

The diecut leaf at the top of each bookmark was cut out of Copper foil paper using a die from the Seasonal Layers Thinlit dies. (After much trial and error with liquid glues, I settled on using the Adhesive Sheets. This did make them a little harder to cut through, but the precision base plate and a second run through the big shot made it work).

I finished them off by angling the ends and punching a heart hole and feeding 1/8″ silver ribbon through the hole to make a tassel. I will admit they didn’t want to stay put at first, but a simple glue dot solved my problem.

Stampin' Up! Save the Date wedding announcements made by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I was also blessed to be able to make their “save the date” wedding announcements.  The found a photo they wanted to use, so I printed that onto Whisper White CS and mounted it on Cherry Cobbler CS. The announcement itself was printed onto vellum. Two holes were punched in the top of all three layers and a ribbon was run through to attach the vellum and give it a finished look.

If you have an event coming up that could use a personal handmade touch, I’d love to help. I can either assist you in designing what you need and help you purchase the needed supplies or give you a quote on my making them for you.
