Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments Kraft Gift Box With Tag

I used the Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments stamp set bundle and one of the Kraft Gift Boxes to create some Christmas gift packaging to share with you today.

Stampin' Up! Merriest Moments Kraft Gift Box With Tag

My gift packaging was inspired by the Global Design Project #319 theme this week.

I started by assembling one of the Kraft Gift Boxes.  They go together really quickly with adhesive pieces included on the boxes…and they’re food safe!!  Then I placed a piece of the Ever Eden Cotton Paper (available while supplies last) and the gift inside and closed up the box.  I wrapped a strand of Gold 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon around the box and tied a small knot to hold it in place.

Then I cut tags from the Ever Eden Specialty DSP (available while supplies last) with the Tailor Made Tags Dies.  I adhered the two tags together with Stampin’ Seal so that the holes were lined up, but they were slightly off-set.  Then I stamped the sentiment from the Merriest Moments stamp set in VersaMark ink on a panel of Soft Succulent card stock and then heat embossed the image with gold embossing powder from the Metallics Embossing Powders.

I cut the sentiment out with one of the Layering Circles Dies and then adhered it with Stampin’ Seal to a scalloped circle that I’d cut from Gold Foil Sheets with a Layering Circles Die.  I adhered the layered circles to the tag with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I stamped the images from the Merriest Moments stamp set in Cherry Cobbler, Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent inks on a panel of Basic White card stock.

I cut the stamped images out with the coordinating Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder Dies and then adhered the poinsettia die cuts together with Mini Glue Dots.  I adhered the poinsettia to the tag with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then adhere the die cut leaves under it with Mini Glue Dots.  I added three Garden Gems (available while supplies last) to the flower center to finish the tag.  Tie the tag to the gift box with the Gold Shimmer Ribbon.

You can see a list of supplies used to create this project, including the card stock cuts, at the very bottom of this blog post.
