Stampin' Up! Be Merry Project Kit, Around the World, Gift Bags, Gift Box - Alternate Project - III & IV

It's a cooler day outside today with lots of clouds and some sun and a chance of a hit or miss rain shower.  It's supposed to get back into the 80's towards the end of the week.  Yay! 

Stampin' Up's Be Merry Project Kit makes for some festive Rosettes that you can hang on your tree or a wreath or you can use as Gift Tags and/or on the top of Christmas presents.  They are also darling to hang on the front of Gift Bags and Gift Boxes.  The kit makes 12 ornaments, 6 each of 2 designs.  I shared the rosettes with you on my blog last week.

My share for today is two Gift Bags and a Gift Box using the Rosettes that I made with the Be Merry Kit.

Let's take a look:

  
I haven't made a Gift Bag on the Gift Bag Punch Board in quite a while and it was so easy to pick it up again and make one.  I used the Red and White striped pattern from Stampin' Up's Around the World Designer Series Paper cut at 12" Width and 10" Length and followed the directions on the front of the board.  Again, so easy!

I made the Rosettes from the Be Merry Kit and used one of SU's Gold Binder Clips to clip the Rosette onto the top of the Gift Bag for a closure.  Now, how easy is that!

 
Above is a picture of a Gift Bag that I had in my personal stash.  Again, I just clipped the Rosette onto the top of the Gift Bag.


While I was at it, I got out my Gift Box Punch Board and made a 4" x 4" x 4" Gift Box from the White Chip Board from one of my packs of Designer Series Paper.  The Chip Board is thinner now and can be easily punched in the Gift Box Punch Board.  I used a piece of Designer Series Washi Tape to adhere the Rosette Hanger onto the Gift Box.


I love the Pre-Made Rosettes in the Be Merry Kit.  All you do is open the Rosette up and adhere it together with the adhesive strips that are already on the Rosettes.  You can also write your To and From on the White Die Cut Circles before you adhere them to the back of the Rosettes.


These are such Quick and Easy projects to make for Christmas!!!

That's all I have for today.  Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Stampin' Up! Be Merry Project Kit, Around the World, Carols of Christmas, Card Front Builder - Alternate Project - II

What a gorgeous weekend!  We went fishing Saturday and Sunday and fished our hearts out!  We had lots of fun and sun too!

My share for today is Stampin' Up's new Mini Pizza Box that I embellished to hold the four 3" x 3" Alternate Cards that I made using some of the elements from Stampin' Up's Be Merry Project Kit and some elements from my personal stash.  I shared how to make the 
3" x 3" cards on my blog last week.

Stampin' Up's Be Merry Project Kit makes for some festive rosettes that you can hang on your tree or a wreath or you can use as gift tags and/or on the top of Christmas presents.  They are also darling to hang on the front of gift bags and gift boxes.  The kit makes 12 ornaments, 6 each of 2 designs.  I shared the rosettes with you on my blog last week.

Let's take a look at my share for today:

 
I embellished the Mini Pizza Box the same way that I made my 3" x 3" Cards that I showed on my blog last week.  The only exception is that the Pool Party/White Dotted panel from SU's Around the World Designer Series Paper was cut at 3-1/8" x 3-1/8".  I adhered this panel to the Mini Pizza Box with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.



The Belly Band is SU's Gold Foil Paper cut at 1-1/4" x 10 " and adhered around the back with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

I adhered a length of the 1/4" Real Red Cotton Ribbon from the kit around the Belly Band and adhered it together in the front with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

I tied another length of the Ribbon into a Bow and adhered it with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

I then adhered my embellished Gold Foil Doily to the Belly Band with Stampin' Dimensionals in the center of the back of the Doily only.


Using SU's new Carols of Christmas Stamp Set, I stamped the Deer in Soft Suede Ink and the Snowflake/Diamond/Cross/Dot Stamp in Pool Party Ink in the bottom left corner of my four Envelopes.


I used SU's new Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies to die cut the little Deer from Soft Suede Cardstock.



I used two layers of the Shimmery Tulle from the kit on top of each Gold Foil Doily.



I adhered the Tree and Merry die cuts from the kit with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.



These will make for some cute gifts to hand out at Christmas!



Pictured above are the four 3" x 3" Cards and Envelopes inside the Mini Pizza Box.


This was such a fun and unique project to make.

That's all I have for today.  Thanks for stopping by my blog.
