Z is for Zzzz….

Welcome to the last post of my ABC Holiday 2019 Series! Throughout this series I have been sharing all kinds of cards, gifts, and ideas to help make your holidays as easy as ABC! I was trying to come up with something for the letter Z (It is always a hard one in my alphabet series) when this little poem popped in to my head…

Don’t wait until the night before Christmas
When you want to get some zzz’s.
If you still have gifts to make,
Create one of these.

I thought I would showcase some of my favorite gift ideas from this series. *You can click on any image to see the original post with directions.

If you are like me, you have people on your list who are just hard to buy for! That’s where gift cards come to the rescue! Rather than just give a plain gift card, I like to come up with different ways to make the presentation fun.  I think this one does the trick!

I changed up the DSP and made another version (shown below) to give to my son for Christmas. He loves to go snowboarding so I am planning to add a gift card for him to use at his favorite ski resort.

The measurements, etc. are the same as the previous one that I made for my daughter. You can click HERE for the directions. For this version I used products from the Let It Snow Suite (including the Let It Snow Embellishment Kit for his felt hat)! The Snowman Builder Punch can be used to punch snowmen from the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Y is for Yankee Candle Box for the Yuletide Season

Welcome to my ABC Holiday 2019 Series! Throughout this series I have been sharing all kinds of cards, gifts, and ideas to help make your holidays as easy as ABC! Today I have a quick & easy Yankee candle box for the Yuletide season. These boxes are ready to fill with a votive candle gift or treats.

Stampin Up! Greatest Part of Christmas stamp set and Designer Series Paper Box Idea for Yankee Candle votives - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s the details to make the box:

Materials & Measurements

  • DSP: 6 x 8 1/2 scored on the long side at 2, 4, 6, 8. Scored on the short side at 2 and 4.
  • Whisper White or Very Vanilla: scrap to stamp sentiment and cut with Square Die
  • Gold Foil/Copper Foil: 2″ square to cut Layering Square Die
  • Ribbon: ~ 6″ to thread through top of box and tie a bow or knot

Directions

  • Fold and burnish score lines. Cut the small rectangles off each end at the bottom.  Cut the score line on each side up to the first score line.Stampin' Up! Box for Yankee Candle Votives - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
  • Add adhesive along the notched piece and close the box to adhere.
  • Make sure the seam is in the back then close the bottom of the box. First fold in the sides, then fold the back piece forward, add adhesive and fold the front piece back.
  • Add your votive candle or other gift and fold the side flaps in to close. Hold the front and back pieces together, punch two holes with 1/8″ hole punch and thread ribbon through and tie a bow to close.
  • Stamp sentiment and cut out with Layering Squares Dies.  Adhere to foil then attach to box with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Optional: Add embellishments to box.

The Yankee Candle votives were on sale this weekend (1/2 price) so I stocked up! It’s amazing how easy it was to match with Stampin’ Up! cardstock and DSP! Here’s a look at each box.
