Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Well, it’s darned near Christmas and we’ve got a pretty classic color challenge for you and for the season! Will everyone go Christmas or…?? Be sure to check out all the projects when you get done here – and see for yourself!
So, I don’t know about y’all – but my Christmas readiness level is about where it should be.
If it was September! 🙁
Which means that quick and easy is high on my list right now. Thankfully, we’ve got our Mini Pizza Boxes and pretty Quilted Christmas DSP and the Smitten Mittens Bundle (but its retiring so grab it up!) to help. Take a look-see!
These little beauties are just right for a piece of jewelry, or a gift card, or a cookie (they’re even food safe on the inside!). So…basically…perfect for all your Christmas packaging.
So…buckle-up, buttercup…you’ll be done in a hot second.
I cut a piece of Gold Foil for a mat and a slightly smaller piece of Quilted Christmas DSP and adhered them together with Liquid Glue. I made a little “present” by wrapping a couple lengths of Cherry Cobbler (yes, not Real Red. My bad!) 1/4″ Double Stitched Ribbon around it – securing the ends in the back with a Glue Dot.
On a piece of Whisper White card stock, I stamped two Cherry Cobbler mittens from the Smitten Mittens stamp set and cut them with their matching dies in the Many Mittens Framelits. I stamped some ric-rac “trim” across the top in Cherry Cobbler and embossed both mittens with the fun little embossing die in the Framelits.
The snowflakes are cut from some more of the plaid Quilted Christmas DSP with the snowflake die in the Many Mittens set and adhered with Liquid Glue.
I stuck a large Gold Faceted Gem on each mitten and adhered the first on with Liquid Glue – sliding it under the ribbon. On the second mitten, I stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler, then popped it on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
See that gold Mini Tinsel? That’s a sneak peek from the new 2018 Occasions Catalog – it comes in the Love Mini Tinsel Trim Combo Pack, paired with a roll of Powder Pink Tinsel. Pretty!
I tied a double-length bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot, popped the whole thing on the top of my Mini Pizza Box with some more Stampin’ Dimensionals and…done! Ready to fill with whatever strikes your fancy! There are so many possibilities with these Mini Pizza Boxes – and I love the little Smitten Mittens tags, don’t you? Hope you like!
