We all love an easy project, right? Something that we can pull together in a moments notice if a last minute need crops up. Well this is perfect for exactly that reason. A full 12 x 12 sheet of Designer Series Paper (DSP) is used to create this tall slim bag, which can be made up in minutes ready for filling and a label being added.
The label is made from two stamps from the You are Amazing stamp set – which I just can’t get enough of. It adds an occasion to the bag meaning you can switch it up as needed.
The paper on this particular bag is from the Paper Blooms DSP pack, which can be earned for free when purchasing £45 worth of craft goodies from the catalogue. It is absolutely gorgeous and is definitely a favourite with other demos and customers alike.
What quick and easy projects do you reach for when working against the clock? Have you placed your order from the new catalogue to earn this paper? If not, why not?
Hands up, how likes an abnormal shaped box? Or something that is a little different to the norm? Well, today’s project is certainly along those lines. Now I’m not the first person to make a box like this, and I’ve seen far too many to credit a single person. So I thought I’d try my own version – these are quite a large size, and will fit a good quantity of treats.
I haven’t used the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper (DSP) in a while and it is such beautiful paper, that I reached out for it again. The colours are absolutely gorgeous and so is the matching ribbon. The picture below shows the iridescent sheen to the ribbon, which makes it sparkle against any project.
I finish my project off with a tag made from Balmy Blue glimmer paper and a Whisper White stitched circle. The stamp is from the cute Snowman Season stamp set and finished the label well.
Which pattern do you prefer – the watercolour ombre one or the snowflakes?
I think I am well and truly getting into the Christmas spirit now – the second lockdown that the UK currently faces has almost pushed me into getting organised and so my projects have turned to Christmas treats for my team at work. Every year, they get a box (or bag) of handmade gifts from me as a Christmas present usually including something tasty and something they can put to use in their role.
This gorgeous box is a selection box and houses four different mini chocolate bars (multipack size). Rather than building segments into the base, I have created four separate mini boxes and then housed them with a single lid. The Brightly Gleaming paper has to be one of my ultimate favourites and I will be sad to stop using this paper when the Mini Catalogue comes to an end. However, whilst its still here, I will continue to use it as much as I can (and quite possibly buy more!)
What chocolates would you house in a box like this? Let me know…
