I am SUPER excited because tomorrow is my All Day Mini Stamping Retreat !! Yay !! Me and my club girls have a hall booked and we are going to go really early and stay ALL day making projects !! Woot woot !! We are all bringing all our own stuff and just going to town making Christmas cards, gift tags, presents and anything else we can think of ! We are having lunch and snacks too ... it's going to be SO great !! Very exciting. My project today is my hostess gift from my Stamp Club this month. It uses the Petite Purse Die and I made the cutest little gift basket holder thing with it !! Take a look !!
Isn't that cute !?! It uses 4 of the petite purse die cut (I cut them in Gumball Green) and I cut some of the pieces off, the big tab on the side, the whole front (the piece with the slit) and the tab on the purse part. See the image below, I was left with only the bottom flap, the back with the skinny tab and the rounded top. Get it ?? I then attached all of the pieces together using Sticky Strip on the skinny side tab, folded over the 4 bottom tabs on the bottom (like a box bottom) and folded over the rounded tops to be the fronts. rather easy actually !! Then I needed to decorate !!
I used the Be of Good Cheer DSP and my Scallop Oval Punch to fancy up the sides a bit. This snowflake pattern is my favourite from that paper pack. Then I put the smallest snowflake from the Snow Flurry Die on these Scalloped Ovals, using the Silver Glimmer Paper. So beautiful !! Love that Glimmer Paper. Then the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch in Cherry Cobbler acted as my basket handle. It was easy to adhere to the box with a few Mini Glue Dots.
The cellophane bag held some YUMMY Chocolate Covered Pretzels, and I decorated the bag with this little tag I made using the Mixed Medley Hostess Stamp Set. I then attached it to the bag with some Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine. So adorable !!
I hope you like my project today !! It would be a great gift for a teacher, co-worker or a friend. And very easy to decorate for any occasion !! Thanks for dropping by today and Happy Stamping !!
