Happy Sunday! Hope your weekend is going well.
Don’t want to scare you but…there are only TWO more Sundays before Christmas. 😉
If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – I appreciate you spending part of your last 18 shopping days with me! If not – but you’d like to see how to make these uber-handy gift boxes, here’s the replay!
I got the idea for these boxes from my teammate, Karen Finkle – who made a bunch of them for a party of her own. She gave us a link to the talented Lea Denton (The Crafty Spark) and I watched her make these boxes a few times before giving it a go!
The first one ended up being a large box…. 4″ x 9″! Awesome – and you can see Lea’s video here. The technique is roughly the same!
I needed smaller boxes for some gifts i’ve got rolling around in my head – so…that’s what we did last night!
While the best way to see how to make these is to watch the video – here’s the recipe…
I use Tear & Tape Adhesive to assemble the box and Liquid Glue for adhering the panels.
For last night’s video, we used the Toile Tidings DSP on a Sahara Sand box and lid – similar to the first larger box I made.
But – it’s also great with Wrapped in Plaid DSP!
This way of making the boxes results in a smooth and nicely reinforced top…
…and adding a final square of card stock on the bottom finishes it off and really adds to the strength of the box – and its ability to hold heavier gifts (like…more CHOCOLATE)!
The lids are also sturdy – and have a slot for threading your ribbon – thanks to the Detailed Trio Punch!
For you visual learner-types….here’s what the lid looks like when you’re done snipping and punching! That’s the top of the lid you are looking at. 🙂
For the video last night, I used Real Red 1″ Ruched Ribbon. In these pictures – I used the Very Vanilla/Copper Classic Weave Ribbon (2019 Holiday Catalog) and some 5/16″ Braided Linen Trim (from the 2020 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog).
Et Voila! The final size of my box from last night is 3″ x 6″ – perfect for all sorts of gifts, don’t you think? I hope you like – and will pull out your Simply Scored Board and that stash of DSP you’ve been hoarding!
Speaking of DSP – we’ve got beautiful new paper coming in the 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog! And – you can get a sample of all the papers with a catalog share! Check out all the deets below and get signed up right away!

Stamps-N-Lingers 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog Shares Are Open!
If you’ve been anxiously awaiting word on my Catalog Shares – and…here ’tis!
If you do NOT know what a “catalog share” is – it’s….sort of like your first run thru a Cruise Ship buffet. There’s a TON to choose from – so you try a little dab of everything! Then you know what to go back to for a second helping. 🙂
In the same vein – a catalog share gives you a chance to try a sample of all the new products in the catalog – and then you can see what you love and go back and purchase full packs of those goodies!
So – you can try a little bit of the beautiful new Designer Series Papers, specialty papers and envelopes, plus fun embellishments with one of my Catalog Shares! I’ll place our Shares order first jump out of the box on 3 Jan 20 and use expedited shipping so I get it back fast!

Depending on what time you get up and rush to the computer to see what pearls of wisdom and crafty knowledge I am bestowing upon you today – Wayne and I may be on our way north of town for a Stamp With Amy K team meeting at my freind Sue Prather’s house. Ever since Amy so callously left us (JK! – she knows I love her!) – we’ve tried to meet at Sue’s for the quarterly in-person team meeting!
Today is meeting combined with Christmas get-together.
Which means…food! 😉
After failing to obtain Chik-Fil-A Chicken Mini’s – I went with my old standby – deviled eggs.
I mean – it IS a Christmas event!
Once my trusty Mealthy Multipot whipped out a bunch of hard boiled eggs – I got busy.
And…of course Finn helped!
Once all the eggs were deviled and stuffed, I might have taken the last few swipes of filling out of the bowl.
Is it me or is he looking a little judge-y?!?
I think he’s being judge-y.
He got over it pretty fast…
