Winter Frost Fancy Gift Box Bow

I’ve fallen in love with our Gift Bow Bigz L Die recently and find myself reaching for it constantly. I’m really looking forward to making my own gift bows this holiday season and in the new year too, and since this die makes it so easy to create gift bows I hope to be able to share more projects with you in the next few weeks.

Fancy Gift Box Bow

This is one of our Kraft Gift Boxes (found in our 2013 Annual Catalog on page 160). They are a great size for holiday a little something – I’m thinking I maybe filling this one with some homemade rum balls.

I’ve covered the 4 sides of the Kraft Gift Box with panels of Island Indigo Textured Card Stock that I cut 3 1/4″ x 2 1/4″ and layered with a  3″ x 2″ piece of the Winter Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper. I added these panels to the box using Sticky Strip (104294) for a really strong hold. For the top of the Kraft Gift Box I layered a 3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ piece of Island Indigo with a 3″ x 3″ piece of the Winter Frost.

This bows a lot of fun to make and I thought it would be easier to show you how I put it together so here is my Fancy Gift Box Bow Video Tutorial to show you how.

Joyful Christmas

Yesterday I shared with you my team swap and so over the next couple of days I thought it would be fun to show you some of the swaps my team made. I’ve got a group of very talented ladies and am always impressed with their creations.

So today’s swap is from Janie. She used the Joyful Christmas Stamp Set (131802/131805) from the Holiday Catalog to create this card. I really like the nontraditional colors she used to create this poinsettia.

Joyful Christmas Janie Team Swap Sept 2013 (2)

Janie and I have a mutual love for the colors found in the Winter Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper – How about you? Isn’t there is just something that makes me feel good when I look at this designer series paper? And since it also comes in a 48 sheet Paper Stack it’s great for card making!

Yep, you heard me right the Winter Frost designer series paper comes in your choice of either a pack of 12×12 sheets (item 132341) with two special foil sheets or a Paper Stack of 48 sheets that include 4 patterns (item 132183). How great is that – I love all the choices Stampin’ Up! gives us to create with.
