Sale-A-Bration Inspiration:

There are so many great Sale-A-Bration stamp sets to choose from this year!  I love them all, but if you’re looking for something super practical that you’ll end up using a lot, I’d recommend the Perfect Pairings stamp set.  It includes 9 different word stamps that work together to create numerous customized greetings.  You can find it on pages 10 and 11 of the Sale-A-Bration catalog.

Perfect Pairings

I used the Perfect Pairing stamp set to make the tag on this little gift box.  I like having little thank you gifts made ahead of time and handy, just in case I need to grab one quickly.  (You could also use this idea as a Valentine gift by simply changing the words.)

I used a bunch of different punches to create the tag.  Punches are fun, because they’re fast and easy.  They are my go to items when I want to make something quick.

To create the banner, I cut a strip of Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper 1-1/2″ wide and cut the V with a Banner Triple Punch.  Then, I stamped the So Much on Whisper White cardstock using Crumb Cake ink and punched it out with a 1-3/4″ Circle Punch.

I punched out the heart from Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper using the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.  Then, I covered it with an Itty Bitty Accents Epoxy Sticker to make it look 3-D.

I stamped the Thank You with Rose Red ink on Blushing Bride cardstock, trimmed it to 1/2″ and then cut Vs on both sides with a Banner Punch.

Finally, I used a Heart Border Punch to create the belly band.

For the box itself, I used a Tiny Treat Box.  These boxes come in packs of 25 for only $7 at my online store!  To add just a little interest to the box, I used a Dots Decorative Mask to sponge on Blushing Bride ink.

Voila … a quick and easy thank you gift.  Looks like it took a lot of work, but it was nothing:)
