Friends Are Like Seashells

Previously I shared some Valentine treat boxes I made using the Mini Paper Pumpkin boxes. I love that these boxes are food safe but they also make great gift boxes which is what I’m using them for today.

I really enjoy decorating these boxes for gifts. One of my favorite bundles is Friends Are Like Seashells. This bundle includes the Friends Are Like Seashells Stamp Set and the Seaside Seashells Dies.

There’s an ocean of possibilities in this set! The seashell, sand dollar, starfish, and sea grass images are the perfect accompaniment for sea-themed cards.  I used the coordinating Seashells 3D Embossing Folder for my background. It’s a great way to elevate your projects and give them some dimension and texture.

I combined the Seashells 3D embossing folder with the Seaside Seashells Dies to create a coordinating oceanscape for my cards to go with the gifts.

I chose to use Stampin’ Up! Note Cards & Envelopes because I wanted my card to fit inside the Mini Paper Pumpkin Box with the gift. Stampin’ Up! Note Cards & Envelopes come in sets of 20 in Basic White and Very Vanilla and are still what I consider the best deal in town! If you want a different color note card, simply cut a piece of 3 1/2 x 5 cardstock and adhere on the front of the card. How easy is that?!
Here’s the details for today’s projects:

Note Card & Envelope (Inspired by Julie Davison)

Have you checked out the Clearance Rack lately? These (retired) Gold Mini Pizza Boxes are just $2.80 for 8 (reg. $7.00)! Now that’s a great deal!!!! These little boxes are great for gifts or treats as well. I used some of the leftover die pieces to decorate the top of these boxes.

Are you wondering what’s in all these boxes? The sentiment (from Friends Are Like Seashells Stamp Set) gives a clue and couldn’t be more perfect to go with these gifts I made for friends.

I have had many people ask about my oyster shells after I shared some of the different ways you can use these shells in your home decor or as gifts.  (Click HERE to view that post.)
I do sell these shells and each one is unique.

Gifts From The Sea with DSP

I love to give homemade gifts. Creating something special for someone is a gift from the heart!  I love the ocean and have always enjoyed combing the beach for sea glass and shells. My sister and I made some gifts from shells we picked along the shore.
Stampin' Up! Designer_Series_Paper_gift_idea-Jeanie Stark-StampinUp
I had so much fun trying different patterned paper and napkins. The great part about using your DSP is you can create a matching card, gift, and/or box.
Stampin'_Up!_Smooth_Sailing_Birthday_Card_and_gift_Idea-Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Stampin’ Up! offers fun and FUNctional packaging, so you can wrap it up in style! I used a clear acetate card box (#144628) to gift the sailboat shell. I wrapped it in tissue paper and placed the coordinating card in the front of the box for a quick birthday gift. This simple card design can be used with any DSP. I used denim ribbon and the Smooth Sailing Dies to tie it all together.

The Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes (#153069) are the perfect size for large shells. I decorated the top of the box in matching DSP. I stamped (and punched) the sentiment from Friends Are Like Seashells to put inside the box. It’s the perfect saying to go with these shells when gifting to a friend!

I have several of these shells throughout my home. They have so many uses! You can put them by the sink in the kitchen or bath, or in the bedroom to hold rings/jewelry/trinkets. You can keep one by the stove for a spoon rest and/or teabag holder. They also make a great decor piece on a coffee table, end table, etc.

I used some paper napkins to make table favors to coordinate with my place settings!

You can put some after dinner mints in the shells and wrap them in the printed gusseted cellophane bags (#151312) for your guests to take home or give as a hostess gift.

The best thing about this project is my sister and I enjoyed the oysters, clams, and stuffed quahogs for dinner before using the shells to create gifts for friends & family. How great is that?!!!

So what do you think of this project idea? I bet you can think of even more uses for these shells.  I’d love to hear your ideas! Leave a comment below.
