Stampin’ Up! Merry Little Labels Acetate Gift Box for Stamp Ink Paper

We’ve got a fun challenge this week at Stamp Ink Paper to create anything but a card.  I used the Stampin’ Up! Merry Little Labels stamp set bundle to create some holiday gift packaging.  Thanks so much to Patty Bennett for sharing the idea to put the Ghirardelli chocolates into the Acetate Card Box, 6 of them fit perfectly!

Here is the graphic for Stamp Ink Paper 118:

I started by wrapping 1-3/4″ x 5″ strips of Merry Little Christmas DSP around Ghirardelli chocolates and adhering them on the back with Glue Dots.  I put the candy inside one of the Acetate boxes and closed the top.

I adhered a panel of Merry Little Christmas DSP to a panel of Basic Black card stock with SNAIL, then wrapped it around the box.  I adhered the band together on the back of the box with Glue Dots.  I wrapped a strand of 7/8″ Striped Ribbon around the box and tied a knot.  I punched a panel of Basic Black card stock with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch on one end and the Banner Triple Punch on the other.

I pulled a strand of Jute Twine around the ribbon knot and threaded it through the tag and then one of the Mini Ornaments.  I tied a small knot and added one of the Green Springs tucked in the ribbon.  I inked the sentiment from the Merry Little Labels stamp set with Basic Black, Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Markers and then stamped it on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  I punched it out with the coordinating Everyday Label Punch and adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the Basic Black tag.

Stampin’ Up! Merry Patterns Christmas Deer

I used the Stampin’ Up! Merry Patterns stamp set, which is a free bonus exclusive for orders/parties over $300 in September and October, to create another clean and simple Christmas card to share today.

As I type this, hurricane Irma is rolling over Florida on its way to Georgia.  Sending good thoughts to everyone down south, hope that you all weathered the storm okay.  We’re expected to have some winds of 50+ mph plus lots of rain in Atlanta and we’ve been told to expect widespread power outages and many trees down.  I am hopeful that we won’t be without power for long.  But if the power goes out, I’ll have limited access to email until it comes back on.  So don’t worry if I don’t respond to you as quickly as I normally do, I’ll reply just as quickly as I can once we are in the clear.  And I’ll try to post a note to let you know that we’re okay on my Facebook page too.  🙂
