Mardi Gras Treat Box with Stampin' Up! Circle Celebrations

Mardi-gras-treatHappy Mardi Gras!  We are experiencing some near record low temperatures today as is most of the USA.  With that being said, our electrical power situation is uncertain so this post will be quick as well as the video.  If you have questions about the project, please let me know.  The measurements are listed below the video.

Since many of us are homebound due to icy roads, I wanted to share an easy project that can be used with a little Ghiradelli chocolate square for any occasion. The Mardi Gras colors are used on this project: purple represents justice, green represents faith, and gold represents power. 

Here's the super quick video!

Socks for Christmas? Unique Christmas Gift Packaging and Fun Technique Video

Unique-diy-christmas-gift-packagingGetting socks for Christmas is not always fun but with this unique gift packaging with a fun technique, the gift will be extra special.

Of course, after watching the video you may think of many other ideas and gifts that would be just as fun in the packaging idea. 

Let's take a look at the video which first aired last Wednesday on my Craft & Chat on Facebook.

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Trimming The Town Designer Series Paper [153491] is cut with two pieces at  5-1/2 x 2-1/8 and two pieces at 2-5/8 x 2-1/8.
  • Cut coordinating strips of this designer paper with two pieces at 1/2 x 5-1/2 and two pieces at 1/2 x 2-5/8.
  • Be sure to watch the video for the technique with the 6" X 8"  Cellophane Bags [102210].
  • Ribbon to tie cello packaging is cut at about 8" for each of the four pieces.
  • I think it's best to wrap the ribbon around the carrier and partially tying the bow before cutting.  Better to have too much than too little and everyone ties bows differently.

Diy-unique-gift-packaging

Do you know someone who will enjoy receiving a gift in this packaging? Here's what you'll need.

Product List

I hope you enjoyed this gift packaging idea!  Check back tomorrow for another idea!

P.S. The Trimming The Town Designer Series Paper [153491] is one of part of our month long designer series paper sale.  Fifteen Designer Series Papers at 15% OFF.  The sale ends this Saturday, October 31st.  See all the papers that are on sale HERE.

DIY Gift Idea with Warm Hugs Bundle
