Remember-blessing-box

Happy Friday!  Today, I wanted to remind you to start sharing those little cards from our blessing box.  And, if you haven't made any yet, there is still time!

You can see the original project idea HERE and here's a few ideas from me for sharing these blessing cards.

I have my box of cards ready to go!

Make A Thanksgiving Table Favor

Thanksgiving-table-favor-1With it being just two weeks to Thanksgiving, I thought I'd share a fun idea to use for your guests. 

These little treat holders are great for mints or small treats.  Wouldn't it be nice to have these at each place setting on your Thanksgiving table?

This project with the To Every Season Bundle (En) [153051] and certainly lives up to its name! Love these little seasonal punches.

Here's the how-to video tutorial for this project.  Let me know if you're going to make some...I'd love to know!

Lisa's Inklings:
-Gather Together DSP 4" x 4”.

-You will need small pieces or scraps of the other card stock colors for stamping/punching.

-Place Tear & Tape along two adjoining edges on the side of the paper that will not show.

-Leave open until filled with treats.

Here is the Stampin' Up! product supply list for this card.  Just click the links to shop! I would be honored to be your Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.

Night-before-christmas-santa-sneakYesterday's LIVE on Facebook featured some fun projects using the Night Before Christmas Suite from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.

Make A Gift Box for Essential Oils

Gift-box-for-essential-oils

For today's project, here's an idea for a gift box for a bottle of essential oils.  This is one I've made and gave to a good friend.  We both love Stress Relief by Eden's Garden so presented this bottle to her a few weeks ago.

This is a very simple box style with a sweetly pinched top. In the video, be sure to watch for how I secure the closing.

 

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Cardstock is cut at 5-1/2" x 8 1/2" and scored at 2", 4", 6", and 8" on the long side.
  • Turn the cardstock where the short side is on top and score at 2".  This will be the box bottom.
  • Designer paper is cut at 1-3/4" x 3-1/4". You'll need four pieces of this.
  • Scrap pieces of Merry Merlot, Cajun Craze, and Pretty Peacock are needed for die cutting leaves and punching circle.
  • Whisper White scrap is needed for stamping and punching the sentiment.

Make A Blessing Box with To Every Season

Blessing-box-to-every-season

Yesterday's Facebook Live featured this Blessing Box and some sweet little handmade cards.

The idea is to bless others by leaving a little card in unexpected places with an inspiring message.  Usually, I will carry mini Valentines to share on Valentine's Day but this year will be sharing during the fall preceding Thanksgiving.  I know in my heart that those who find the cards are meant to have them.  Another idea is to share with those who provide a service for you.  (Mail Carrier, clerk at the bank, cashier at the market...you get the idea.)

Here is a photo of how the box opens...

Blessing-box-open

Here's a peek at the little cards.  I made three of each.

Blessing-Box-CardsIt's a simple project and I encourage you to do something similar!

Here's the recording of the Facebook Live video...

Lisa's Inklings:

  • For the box... Card stock is cut to 6-1/4 x 11.  Score on the 11" side at 1-1/2, 4-3/4, 6-1/4, 9-1/2.  Turn and score on the 6-1/4" side at 1-1/2 and 4-3/4.
  • Designer Paper for top of box is cut to 3" x 3".
  • For the cards...cut card stock to 3" x 6" and score in half at 3".
  • Designer paper is cut to 2-3/4" x 2-3/4" for cards with a piece of Whisper White for the inside cut the same.

Here are the supplies used for the Blessing Box project:
