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.

DIY Christmas Gift Tags with Stampin' Up! Tag Buffet

DIY Christmas Gift Tags Stampin' Up! Tag BuffetFor this week's Facebook Live, my husband, Jackie, and I teamed up for another "kit together" for some beautiful DIY Christmas Gift Tags. 

This kit from the Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog is called appropriately, Tag Buffet.  There is a coordinating stamp set sold separately but honestly, you can create these tags and use on your Christmas gifts without the stamped sentiments.

Originally, I had asked Jackie to just punch out the tags and images and sort them for me.  When he asked if I wanted him to put them together, of course, I wasn't going to turn him down.  Here's the video from the Wednesday Craft & Chat on Facebook. 

In the video, you saw that you can also use these tags to make Christmas cards. 
Here is a look at those cards which would be great for sending to family or friends!

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.

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