12 Days of Christmas 2016 | Day 5

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Karen Robinson – 12 Days of Christmas 2016 | Day 5

Today’s project is a quick to make, with minimal supplies box, that only requires three items, cardstock, paper and ribbon.

These little sweeties were part of this years’ teachers gifts and I used Cherry Cobbler cardstock and the Warmth and Cheer DSP (reduced in the Year-End Closeouts) as they coordinated with the rest of the gift. I didn’t have any suitable Stampin’ Up! ribbon so used some black bridal tulle, which I love – it ties so beautifully, to finish them off.

These are really simple to make and I used my Stampin’ Trimmer to cut and score the cardstock which made them even faster to assemble.

A quick and easy tutorial:

Base: 5-1/2 x 6-1/2″ piece of cardstock  Score @ 1-1/2″ on all sides
Lid: 4-5/8 x 3-5/8″ piece of cardstock  Score @ 1/2″ on all sides

Base: 1-1/4 x 2-1/4″ DSP (x 2)
Base: 1-1/4 x 3-1/4″ DSP (x 2)
Lid: 2-3/8 x 3-3/8″ DSP

Ribbon, tulle or baker’s twine

Score and burnish the cardstock pieces, trim and notch the tabs.
Attach the DSP and assemble the base and lid using a strong adhesive.
Tie the ribbon as desired.

These are a good-sized box and I managed to squeeze in four Ernest Hillier’s Puddings into each one for the teachers. They’ll also hold a gift card, as well as lot’s of the other small gifties we tend to give at this time of year. I think they’d be a fun way to wrap little stocking stuffers, who doesn’t like lots of little things to open on Christmas morning? 🙂

I hope you liked today’s quick and easy project, it’s a great way to use up scraps of DSP and you can make the base and lid from only one sheet of cardstock, so quick, easy and economical.

I’ll be back on Monday with Day 6, see you then.

Cheers,
Karen
