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.

Stampin' Up! Night Before Christmas Gift Card Holder and Box

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. 

Unfortunately, there are focus issues with the video.  Since the quality is not as good as I want it to be, I chose not to upload the video. If you're "brave", you can catch the replay HERE.

First project is this card/gift card holder...so fun!

Night-before-christmas-santa-cardLooks like a fun card, right?  Don't you love that Santa?! Take a look at the inside...

  • The card base is cut at 4-1/4" x 11".
  • Score this at 5-1/2" and 9".
  • Fold over to make flap for the gift card as shown above.  Adhere to the two sides with Tear & Tape.
    Inside of card...
  • Very Vanilla is cut 4" x 5-1/4".  The Santa hat paper is cut 2" x 4".
  • Sentiment is stamped in Poppy Parade

    Card front...

  • The layers are Very Vanilla cut at 3" x 3-3/4" and the Paisley print designer paper is cut 3-1/4" x 4".
  • Santa is stamped on Shimmery White card stock in Memento Black ink and colored with Stampin' Blends.

It's time for the fourth in a series of 2019 Stampin' Up! Christmas card ideas from Ink and Inspirations!  Today, we have a fun card featuring a very popular icon in decor these days, the little red truck.

IMG_0039

It's such a fun card, don't you think? Years ago, Stampin' Up! carried another truck and this one is even more awesome.  It's a versatile set that can be used for birthdays, autumn-themed cards, and holiday cards just like this one.  It can also be bundled with its coordinating dies for a 10% discount and that die collection can be used to a 3D little truck! You'll see more on that at a later date!

Here's the how-to video tutorial for this Christmas card idea...enjoy!

 

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Card base is Garden Green cut at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", and 3/4" x 2-1/2" for the sentiment.
  • Garden Green gingham check from the Regals DSP Stack is cut 4" x 5-1/2".
  • Whisper White for the main image is cut 2-1/2" x 4".

DIY Hostess Gift for Christmas 2018

Christmas-2018-hostess-gift-1Let's start the week off with an easy hostess gift that you can make for Christmas 2018!

I think tea towels and/or pretty dish towels make great gifts.  I mean, I don't buy these for myself, do you?

This oversized tag takes the place of gift wrap or a gift bag plus has a fun and different look.  You can even use designer series paper instead of the stamped cardstock and it will take less time to make.

Let's take a look at the how-to video tutorial...

Here's another example of this same project idea that was made for Thanksgiving last year.  Don't you love how we can make any gift look extra-special with our paper crafting supplies?

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Basic Black cardstock is cut 3 3/4" x 5 3/4".
  • Real Red cardstock is cut 3 1/2" x 5 1/2".
  • You will need approximately 4" x 4" pieces of Crumb Cake cardstock and glimmer paper for the punched pieces.

Stampin' Up! 2017 Christmas Card Ideas Video Tutorial #4

Stampin-up-2017-christmas-card-idea-4aThe fourth in a series of 2017 Stampin' Up! Christmas Cards features the new Stampin' Blends and the Christmas in the Making stamp set.

In yesterday's video tutorial, I demonstrated the process of coloring this little miss that's from one of my favorite sets in the Holiday Catalog.  It's so much fun to color and I've gotten to "practice" a lot with my new Blends.  I like to stamp a lot of images and put them in a box with my Stampin' Blends.  Then, I can carry with me while traveling, to appointments...anywhere that I'll have some time to sit and "wait".  The complete set fits nicely in one of my old Paper Pumpkin boxes.

Let's take a look at the assembly of the card in today's video tutorial...

Patriotic Party Favor for Flag Day and Fourth of July

6-14-fourth-of-july-party-favorsTo celebrate Flag Day here in the U.S., let's make these patriotic party favors!  These little treat cones always turn out cute and you can make them in any size by starting with a square piece of designer paper or cardstock. 

Please forgive the fact that my treat cones are not stuffed with delectable goodies.  It's just too tempting for me!  So, I opt to stuff with shredded cardstock which will add to the look of your project even with or without the treats!

Embellishing these little cones has no boundaries.  Have glue dots?  Then, you're set to go!  I have found that the best adhesive to assemble to cone is Tear & Tape.  It's easy and convenient and provides a good stick.

Here's the how- to in today's video tutorial.  Have questions or suggestions?  Post in the comment section below!

See the Patriotic Party Favor for Flag Day and Fourth of July on You Tube HERE.

Lisa's Inklings:

  • For this favor, I started with a 3 x 3 piece of designer paper.  You make these starting with any size square.
  • Glue Dots make it easy to add ribbon and embellishments for these treats.
  • You can make these cones for any occasion!  See other examples HERE and HERE.
