2021 Stampin' Up! Halloween Projects- Easy Bag for Treats or Gifts

2021-stampin-up-halloween-project-gift-bag

Well, friends, 2021 Halloween is just around the corner so here's an easy treat or gift bag that you can make in a jiffy! 

This one is created with the Frightfully Cute Bundle (currently on backorder) but you can use any of the supplies that you have on hand to create this for Halloween treats or a little gift.  In fact, you can see a re-make of this bag, the Christmas version, right here.

Notice that I did not use a Halloween designer paper for this bag.  This pattern is in Bumblebee from the Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper collection from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.

2021-stampin-up-halloween-project-gift-pouchHere are the simple directions for assembling this easy gift bag for 2021 Halloween or any occasion!

  • The card stock for the bag is cut 8-½ x 11. Score on the long side at 4-½, 5-¼, 9-¾, 11. 
  • Turn and score at 1-½ for what will be the bag bottom.
  • Embellish the bag with die-cuts, stamped images, ribbon, and gems to coordinate with your card stock, designer paper, and for the occasion.

Now you are ready to create this bag for any celebration!  It's easy and fun and you can decorate it however you'd like!

2021 Blessing Box with Stampin' Up! Gorgeous Leaves

Blessing-box-with-3-x-3-cards

This Blessing Box is a special project and the 2021 version is created with the beautiful Gorgeous Leaves Bundle by Stampin' Up!

The idea behind the Blessing Box came to me when so many would often tell me how much it meant to receive a card from me.  And, when my brother told me that he's kept every card that I've ever made for him.  It made me think about those who never receive a little "paper hug" in the mail.  How could that be changed even if only for just a few?

And, thus, the Blessing Box was created.  A little box that holds 3 x 3 cards with a kind phrase, a verse from God's Word, or an uplifting message...just a random act of kindness.  There is no signature, no credit; just sharing in hopes that it will be a blessing in someone's day.

The video goes into a little more detail about how these are shared so I hope you'll watch and make plans to create your Blessing Box.

2021 Stampin' Up! Christmas Season Card and Gift Bag

2021-Stampin-up-christmas-season-card-gift-bagYou are going to love these coordinating 2021 Stampin' Up! Christmas Season Card and Gift Bag!

The card is a fun fold that looks a little more tricky than it actually is and the bag is super simple.  And, the pine cones from the Christmas Season Bundle (English) [156801]are so realistic with the two-step stamping technique on Crumb Cake card stock against the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper [156292] background.  These elements make for a really special project.

Today's project is a 2021 Stampin' Up! Halloween triangle treat box created with the Cute Halloween 6" X 6" Designer Series Paper [156479].

This little triangle holds a few pieces of candy and makes a cute presentation.  This designer paper stack is already cut 6 x 6 and you can make two of these treat holders with one sheet of paper.

2021 Stampin' Up! Halloween Projects- Frightfully Cute Treat Box

2021-stampin-up-halloween-treat-box-1This 2021 Stampin' Up! Halloween Project is a remake of this box but this one is decked out with the Frightfully Cute Bundle [156493] from the 2021 July-January mini catalog. 

Isn't the blue and yellow a pretty combination?  This little owl is guarding a box full of sweets.  This box could even hold a little gift.

2021-stampin-up-halloween-treat-box-3

Here's a look at the how-to so you can make this 2021 Stampin' Halloween box, too!

Lisa's Inklings:
Night Of Navy Cardstock [100867] (2) 5 x 6. Score at 1" all four sides, (2) 2-3/4 x 3/4, (2) 3-3/4 x 3/4, (1) 2-3/4 x 3-3/4.

Crushed Curry  Cardstock [131199]  (2) 3-7/8 x 7/8, (2) 2-7/8 x 7/8, (1) 2-7/8 x 3-7/8  plus a small piece to stamp sentiment.
You will need scrap pieces of the other card stock colors to die-cut: Gray Granite  Cardstock [146983] and Early Espresso  Cardstock [119686].
Substitute Crushed Curry for stars since this Be Dazzling Paper is no longer available.

2021-stampin-up-halloween-treat-box-3

Look at all that chocolate goodness!  Well, to me, anyway! ;)  I always tell Jackie, my husband, NOT to eat the candy in my studio because there is NO telling how old it is.  If he finds this box, he will know these are fresh!

2021-stampin-up-halloween-treat-box-2

Although designed as a Halloween project, this is a versatile box that you could adapt for any occasion.  A small gift would be nice tucked inside.  Here are some ideas...

  • An infant onesie
  • A bottle or two of essential oils wrapped in tissue for added protection.  (It would be a good idea to use glue dots or a small piece of tape to keep the box closed.)
  • A gift card with a few candies.
  • Some Stampin' Up! adhesives for your favorite crafter.
  • Scented or specialty soaps.

These are just a few ideas and I am sure you can think of more!

Here is the Ink and Inspirations Project Sheet that you can download or print.  It contains all of the measurements and the products used!

Make A Small Gift Box for a Candle

Diy-small-fall-gift box-stampin-upLet's start the week with a fun project...a gift box for a candle from the Target Dollar Spot! (I think it's still called by that name!)

Anyway, if you are a Target Shopper, then you are familiar with this area of the store which is usually near the entrance.  Our daughter, Kristen, and I went shopping the other day and I had to check out all the fall goodies in this area.  These candles came in several colors with several sentiments and scents...cost: $3.  As a former classroom teacher, I know that I would have loved a little gift like this so I purchased two for Mia's preschool teachers.

Of course, there needed to be a sweet box to hold this candle and the Pretty Pumpkins Bundle [156478]  would make the perfect accents.
