I hope you have had an enjoyable weekend so far. Mine did not play out quite as I had planned — my nail appointment was cut short due to a family emergency of my manicurist on Saturday and the power went out in the middle of my hair appointment today. Jeepers!
I did get in some more creative time in my craft room today and put the Christmas Bauble stamp to good use — after all, I had already stamped, colored and fussy cut it out and it deserved to be used in good order.
Since I had struggled yesterday making it into a card, I went in a different direction and created a gift box using the new Gift Box Punch Board that will be available in the 2014 Holiday Catalog that releases on August 28th.
The Gift Box Punch Board is amazing and allows you to make boxes as small as 1.75″ x 1.75″ x 1.75″ (using a 6″ x 6″ piece of paper) to as large as 4″ x 4″ x 4″ (using a 12″ x 12″ piece of paper). You can use designer series paper or cardstock to create your box, but what is even better is the Under the Tree Specialty Designer Series Paper (also in the 2014 Holiday Catalog) which is cardstock-weight kraft sheets with a color print on one side and white printed patterns on the other. An unbelievable fact is that absolutely NO adhesive is required to put this box together.
Below is a list of the products I used in my project which will be available on August 28th:
Christmas Bauble Stamp Set # 133824 $10.95 (wood-mount only)
Gift Box Punch Board # 135863 $19.95
Under the Tree Specialty Designer Series Paper # 135825 $12.95

Thank you for stopping by my blog. As I have said many times before, I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper.
Until next time, stamp on my friends,
