Gum Holder Tutorial and Productivity Tip!

Did you know that chewing gum can increase your productivity? According to studies, chewing gum has incredible effects (speeds up reaction time, boosts cognitive abilities, combats sleepiness, and reduces stress)! My son is starting a new business this week and my daughter has her first major grad school test so I thought I would send them both a little something “Extra”.

Stampin' Up! Gum Holder Box tutorial for chewing gum with Playful Pets- Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This gum holder is fun and simple to make. I had to make my daughter the cat version (as Storm is her “study buddy” these days) and went with some retired Country Club DSP for my son. (His new business adventure is virtual golf.) You can customize the colors, etc. for someone in your life! I’d like to thank Tracy Bradley for the inspiration for this gum holder box idea!
Here’s the details:

Measurements:

Cardstock for box: 3 1/2 x 8 1/2
Score on the long side @ 3 1/8, 3 5/8, 6 3/4, 7 1/4
Score on the short side @ 1/2, 3
DSP: 2 3/8 x 1 1/8, 2 3/8 x 2

Directions:

  • Cut small square and rectangle from short side (* photo below).
  • Cut 1/2 inch squares from the middle section.
  • Punch or die cut circle notch from the top of the box.
  • Use Tear & Tape or Liquid Glue to adhere the sides.
  • Add DSP panels.
  • Pop up die cut or punched shape with Stampin’ Dimensionals to slide lid under to keep box closed. *Tip: Fold the lid over and add 2 Dimensionals just under the lid. Add a third dimensional on the bottom of the die cut piece.

Here’s a few more photos for you!

Stitched Stars Congratulations

I made this card for one of my team members who recently promoted.

Stampin' Up! Stitched Stars Dies Congratulations card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Stitched Star Dies and Star Designer Elements I used on this card carried over from the holiday catalog. Don’t forget to check out the other carryover items in my online store (under Holiday Favorites)! I love these dies and there’s even a new stamp set (Morning Star) in the Mini Catalog that coordinates (p.21). The stars are just gorgeous on their own! Stampin' Up! Stitched Stars Dies Congratulations card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used a piece of vellum (cut with the Stitched Rectangle Dies) to highlight the beautiful dies and soften the stars on the DSP. I tucked a little gift in a Copper Dotted Treat Bag and wanted to showcase the card on the front so I adhered a Clear Medium Envelope to the bag and slipped the card inside. Card & gift packaging all in one!
