Sweet Strawberry Berry Basket

The Sweet Strawberry Bundle is one of My Favorite Things in the new Mini Catalog. I paired it with one of my favorite Sale-A-Bration items, the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper, to create this berry basket for gift giving.

I love to make homemade strawberry jam. This past year was different (to say the least!) and I didn’t get to pick strawberries and make homemade jam like I normally would. I really like the Stonewall Kitchen products (Red Pepper Jelly is my favorite) so I decided to try their Strawberry Jam and it did not disappoint. I usually give my homemade jam to friends and family so I created this cute strawberry basket to hold this jar of jam.

It pairs perfectly with the Sweet Strawberry Stamp Set and Strawberry Builder Punch. This set was one of the first sets I purchased from the new Mini Catalog (January – June 2021).

I used the stamp set and coordinating punch to create the tag for the top of my jam jar.

I cut out a Basic White circle using the Stitched Shapes Dies then stamped the strawberry vine image in Garden Green ink. I colored the leaves with Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends. The strawberry outline image is stamped in Poppy Parade ink then stamped again with the filler image and punched out using the Strawberry Builder Punch. I stamped the stem on Granny Apple Green cardstock with Garden Green ink and punched it out. Strawberry flowers are white with a yellow center and a touch of green. I punched the flower, used the Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend to draw some lines in the center, and added a bumblebee dot from the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots. The circle tag is adhered to the top of the jar with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I wrapped it all up in a cellophane bag with some Granny Apple Green ribbon. This makes a great hostess gift or a little something to brighten someone’s day. You could also give with some bread, bagels, or crackers as a housewarming gift.

A Pizza Box Just For You

Stampin Up Merry Little Labels gift box idea using Everyday Label Punch, Leaf Punch, Pretty Pines Thinlits, Layering Circles and a pizza box. Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Yesterday I shared this cute little pizza box which is so versatile. It’s food safe for giving homemade treats, is perfect for little gifts, and even holds a Paper Pumpkin subscription! Slide off the belly band and take a peek inside!

You can decorate these in a variety of ways. As promised, here’s all the details…

I wanted to make the box color coordinate with the printed Paper Pumpkin subscription so I went with Real Red and Pool Party.  The Designer Series Paper is from Christmas Around the World.  I cut a 3 3/8″ square piece of Real Red cardstock for the base of the lid.  The DSP layer is a 3 1/4″ square.   The belly band measures 1 x 10 1/2 and is wrapped around the box and adhered in the front.  I cut 2 circles from the Layering Circles Framelits and adhered those to the belly band.  The sentiment is from Merry Little Labels and stamped in Real Red ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I punched it out with the Everyday Label Punch.  I also punched 2 more from Pool Party cardstock and cut each in half. I adhered the 4 pieces to the back of the sentiment to give it a layered look.  I punched the leaf from Silver Glimmer Paper using the leaf punch (which is one of my favorite punches).  I also cut some evergreen from the Pretty Pines Thinlits in pool party to add a little embellishment behind the sentiment layer. I made a bow from 1/8″ Real Red Ribbon and adhered with a glue dot.

When you purchase a Paper Pumpkin prepaid subscription you can download a gift certificate. My wonderful husband resized it to fit in the pizza box. You can certainly do the same; however, if you purchase a 3, 6, or 12 month prepaid paper pumpkin subscription through me I will send you the gift certificate and the decorated pizza box to put it in! All you’ll have to do is decide who is goes to and add the code (which you will receive via email).  Give the gift that keeps on giving! I love my Paper Pumpkin kits and look forward to my monthly surprise in the mail. I think they make a wonderful gift to give or receive!  Click HERE to order! Want to see more ideas using the pizza boxes? Click HERE to see some I shared previously.
