Repurposed Paper Pumpkin Teddy Bear Box

 

I'm sending a box full of bear hugs to my niece!!  We were chatting one day and she mentioned that she cannot find her Snail adhesive after moving across country, so I knew that I had to send her a care package!!

I repurposed my November Paper Pumpkin kit box and filled it with a variety of Stampin' Up! adhesives for her! :)

And what's a box of bear hugs without some cute bears!?  :)

I stamped and die cut these adorable bears using the Fa-la-la-la Friends stamp set (pg 30 in the 2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog or HERE in my online store), and die cut them with the Bear Hugs framelits (pg 193 in the annual catalog, #140275 online), and of course I had to make them some cute plaid sweaters and jammies using the Warmth & Cheer plaid papers from the Holiday catalog (pg 13, or #141991 online).

Don't you love them!?  I do!  I hope Jenny loves the box of treats!!  Love you Jenny!!

I covered the top of the box with some Presents & Pinecones paper to hide the mailing label, but the rest of the box is perfect because it has sweet holiday wishes printed on the sides!

Do you Give Gift Cards at the Holidays?

 

Gift Cards... do you give Gift Cards? We probably all do, right?  Family, Friends, Mailman, UPS guy, co-workers, teachers, grandkids, etc.

Well, here is a creative way to present an otherwise boring gift card!

Merry Tags Gift Card Holders featuring Stampin' Up! bags, paper and embellishments by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

All I did was to fold a bag in half, in this case I used the Glassine Gift Bags, but you can use the Kraft Gift bags, too, as shown in the video below.  Purchase either of these bag options in my online store and find on page 176 in the 2016 annual Stampin' Up! catalog.  See all of the supplies used for these projects listed at the bottom of this blog post.

 

Watch my video below from last year.. different supplies, same concept:

 

 

Click here to watch the video on YouTube if you are reading this in a email!

 

Click here to see more ideas using this design idea.

 

Or, maybe you just want to tuck in other goodies like candy, family photos, a note, theater tickets, etc., .. fill the 2 pockets with whatever you'd like!

Each of these gift card holders was embellished with the "This Christmas" designer paper and die cut images from the Merry Tags framelit dies.

 

Merry Tags Gift Card Holders featuring Stampin' Up! bags, paper and embellishments by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

As you'll see in the video, simply wrap a 10" to 12" piece of designer paper around the folded bag and decorate.. could not be any simpler!! :)

The bag itself creates 2 pockets for you to fill!

Last month I took a stamping class at Cindee's house.  She is an amazing teacher and crafter!!  This is one of the lovely projects we created during her class, featuring the Stampin' UP! Santa's Sleigh stamp set and framelit die bundle as well as other great products listed below!

 

Framed Home Christmas Decor piece featuring Stampin' Up! Santa's Sleigh stamp set and framelit set. Cute Reindeer and sleigh on a glimmery snowy hillside!

 

 We created this festive 5"x7" framed Christmas home decor piece using the Fancy Frost paper in the background (sponged in blue) and the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper cut into "snowy hillsides".  It also features die cut reindeer, trees and Santa's Sleigh.

 

Noteable Design Features:

  • Mica Flakes on tree
  • sponged Fancy Frost designer paper "sky"
  • snowy hillside cut from Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper
  • Glimmer paper over Silver Foil sleigh

 

Each of these Stampin' Up! products are available by clicking on any of the product photos at the bottom of this blog post - it will take you right to my online store!

 

Supplies for framed Christmas Santa's Sleigh home decor piece.

To add the mica flakes to the tree, we put a bit of Multipurpose liquid glue on the tree then sprinkled the mica flakes on top. So pretty!!

Mica Flakes, found on page 41 in the 2016 Holiday catalog, or here in my online store.

Don't the trees look amazing?

They are stamped in Garden Green and Old Olive on Pear Pizzazz and Emerald Envy cardstock, die cut with the Santa's Sleigh framelits, and then we added the mica flakes, per above.

 

Framed Home Christmas Decor piece featuring Stampin' Up! Santa's Sleigh stamp set and framelit set. Cute Reindeer and sleigh on a glimmery snowy hillside!

 

The sleigh is so special looking when you layer the Silver Foil paper and the Silver Glimmer paper!!!!

Each reindeer has a red glimmer paper bow!  I forgot to put the red glimmer dot on the nose of "Rudolph", but at least he's dressed up with the die cut wreath!

 And that sky... how pretty is that!?  The Fancy Frost paper is already embossed with several different patterns, all you have to do is sponge on a little color for this gorgeous effect!  Find the Fancy Frost paper on page 37 in the Holiday catalog or HERE in my online store.
