Festive Boxes

By | November 7, 2016

It may be only November, but I’m already looking forward to Christmas!

I love Christmas and especially wrapping beautiful presents to go under the tree and give to friends.  Stampin’ Up! makes it so simple!!!  The whole Candy Cane Lane suite of products coordinate together, including stamps, designer papers, and gorgeous ribbon and twine.


I used the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper and the Gift Box Punch Board to create my boxes.  Don’t you just love the festive designs of this paper?

To make it easy to open and close the boxes, I built a 1-1/4″ belly band around each box so the ribbon and tag could be slipped on and off.   Afterwards, I wrapped the belly band with Real Red 3/4″ Stitched Edge Ribbon.  This ribbon is so freaking cute!  It’s by far my favorite Christmas ribbon of all time.


To create my tags, I used the Cheerful Tags Framelits Dies.  First, I cut a tag out of Crumb Cake cardstock.  Then, I cut the bottom half out of Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper and layered it on top of the bottom section of the tag.  I used those same framelits to cut the cute curly-cue out of Real Red cardstock.

My favorite part of the tag is the reindeer!  I stamped it with the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp and punched it out with the coordinating Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.  Then, I watercolored the reindeer with an Aqua Painter.

As a final touch, I tied the ribbon with some coordinating baker’s twine and added a couple jingle bells.  So festive!


Supplies used on my boxes:

Christmas will be here before you know it.  Start making your handmade gifts and cards early and avoid the rush.

Before I go, I wanted to tell you about a special promotion Stampin’ Up! is offering in November.  First, you have the opportunity to buy one of the new framelit sets that will be coming out in the next Annual Catalog way ahead of schedule!!!


Here’s a peak at what you can do with one of these framelits.


There are four sizes in three shapes.  All produce the delicate stitching around the edges of the die cut!


Second, you can get all these products for 25% off during November!
