Mini Pizza Box Christmas Gift Idea

 

If you joined me here yesterday you saw the results of our girls crafting day "Be Merry rosette ornaments" creations, and today I'm sharing a fun thing you might like to do with them.. put one on a Mini Pizza Box for a great little neighbor gift, teacher appreciation gift, co-worker gift, etc.!

 

Stampin' UP! mini pizza box gift idea with Be Merry rosette ornament on top. Perfect for gift giving: cookies, candy, gift cards, jewelry, notes, photos and more! by Patty Bennett

 

This is one of the 7 projects we created last month at our Luv 2 Stamp Group event.  We made the rosette ornaments from the Be Merry kit and hot glued them to a pizza box!  It's the perfect little container for some holiday candy, treats or gift card!

We found that a hot glue gun was a great help in securing all these layers together.

In addition to the contents of the Be Merry ornament kit, we added a Foil Snowflake, punched circle from the Quilted Christmas designer paper stack, a stamped greeting from the Christmas Happiness stamp set, tag border from the Labels to Love set, and the Everyday Label punch. We also added an adorable stitched felt red star from the Stitched Felt Embellishments package, topped off with the Quilted Christmas 1/4" ribbon bow.

Final touches of gold: Faceted Gold Gems and Gold Metallic enamel shaped stars.

Perfect Thanksgiving Hostess Gift Idea

 

We're so excited because my sister-in-law invited us to her home for Thanksgiving again this year.. we love and appreciate her hospitality!  I think this will make a sweet hostess gift to take to her!!  I used the Stampin' UP! Painted Harvest stamp set to stamp the sunflower image, leaves and thankful greeting, and the Gourd Goodness stamp set to stamp the pumpkins.

 

Painted Harvest and Gourd Goodness sunflower and pumpkins Hostess gift idea for Thanksgiving. Stampin' Up! supplies available online: click shop online at www.PattyStamps.com

 

Helpful Resources:

 

This jar is actually a candle holder jar from Michaels (see THIS post), but I took the candle holder part out, and filled the jar with candy, and then covered the hole in the lid with the stamped sunflower on the punched out circle!

 

Painted Harvest and Gourd Goodness sunflower and pumpkins Hostess gift idea for Thanksgiving. Stampin' Up! supplies available online: click shop online at www.PattyStamps.com

 

To take out the candle holder portion, I just wiggled the piece back and forth and it eventually broke the weld.  Easy.

I tied it up with the 3/8" Crushed Curry Mini Chevron ribbon.

The pumpkins are stamped with Peekaboo peach and Pumpkin Pie ink. I love the photo-realistic images in this Gourd Goodness set.  I used Stampin' Dimensionals to add them to a die cut Stitched Shape Whisper White oval piece. I stamped the greeting from Painted Harvest in Cajun Craze ink.

 The leaves are stamped and punched using the stamps in the Painted Harvest bundle - SAVE 10% when you buy the bundle including the stamp set and leaf punch! See the bottom of this post for all shopping info!

This was one of the 7 Holiday catalog projects the Luv 2 Stamp Group created last Saturday at our stamping day event.  We used the Year of Cheer Holiday catalog paper to wrap around the Ghirardelli chocolate squares, and also to decorate the 1/2 boxes.  Each box is finished off with a gold or silver Foil Snowflake, and a stamped sentiment from the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set, stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink on Whisper White cardstock, and punched with the Starburst Punch. (all of these products are shown at the bottom of this blog post - just click any product photo to shop in my online Stampin' Up! store).

Starbucks Gift Card Holder idea for Christmas

 

Gift Cards... it seems we all give them either at the holidays or during the year for birthdays, anniversaries, graduation, Christmas, etc., but it's fun to make them a little more personal and fancy than just handing them to the recipient in an envelope. 

 

Year of Cheer / Coffee Cafe Starbucks gift card holder idea for Christmas gift, by Patty Bennett with the Luv 2 Stamp Group

 

Today I have a gift card holder idea for you that is basically a side fold card with a little pocket inside and since this one features the Stampin' Up! Coffee Cafe bundle, it's the perfect holder for a Starbucks gift card. 

Even though it's difficult to see in the photo, the lid is glossy white cardstock and it looks super cute in person!

Die Cutting for the Year of Cheer / Coffee Cafe Starbucks gift card holder idea for Christmas gift, by Patty Bennett with the Luv 2 Stamp Group

 

Tip.. use Tear & Tape or strong adhesive at the bottom and 2 sides of the small piece of Year of Cheer paper inside the card for the gift card pocket to ensure that it holds.

Inside gift card pocket for the Year of Cheer / Coffee Cafe Starbucks gift card holder idea for Christmas gift, by Patty Bennett with the Luv 2 Stamp Group

 

The card base is Thick Whisper White cardstock and the front snowflake design is found in the Year of Cheer designer paper pack.  The coffee cup is die cut from the Quilted Christmas designer paper pack.  The small hearts are die cut from the Support Ribbon framelits - sorry I left those off the supply list below.

Happiness... is stamped in Emerald Envy ink (to match the Emerald Envy ribbon) and it's found in the Coffee Cafe stamp set.

I loved the shimmery foil pattern in the Year of Cheer paper so I carried that through the theme of the card with the Champagne foil cup "wrapper" and the Foil snowflake!

Per my video above, you saw that I die cut the snowman with the matching Seasonal Tags framelit, but only used 1/2 of the stamp and framelit.  I just added the snowman "front" to my Mini Pizza box with Stampin' Dimensionals rather than die cutting the whole thing and making a folding tag.

Creative Pizza Box Birthday Gift for my dad's 85th birthday

 

 

Jim Burns 85th birthday cake, celebration Sept. 2017We recently had the amazing pleasure of celebrating both of our dads 85th birthdays!

We celebrated with Eric's dad a few weeks early when they came up to the Bay Area to visit, and we celebrated with my dad in So. Cal. in September. Eric's dad also had a big family celebration while we were gone on our cruise last week.

We are So blessed to have both dads turning 85 in the same month!

I will be sharing the card/gift I made Eric's dad in a future post, but today I am sharing a fun gift I made for my dad!

Our family gathered at a restaurant in Sierra Madre in early September to celebrate my dad, Jim Burns (yes, he's the artist). 

I wanted to do something with $85 since it was his 85th birthday, so I came up with the idea of putting 85  $1 bills into mini pizza boxes from Stampin' Up! and I came up with this fun way to package it.  I hope it gives you some fun ideas for doing something similar!

 

Stampin' UP! mini pizza box stack - special 85th birthday gift with photos and $85 inside by Patty Bennett

 

I stacked 4 Mini Pizza Boxes, and decorated the top one with the Happy Birthday framelit die cut in Island Indigo cardstock,  as well as with pieces of the Year of Cheer paper and some gold and silver edged ribbons. 

In the top box, I made an accordion fold out of a bunch of 3x3 photos... and die cut 85 with the large numbers framelits and silver foil paper.

Layered Leaves Paper Pumpkin kit gifts

 

Hi friends!!  If you follow me on my Business Facebook Page or Instagram, you probably know that we were away on Vacation last week... we took a cruise to the Caribbean!! It was wonderful and relaxing and just what we all needed!!  I think it's been 2 years since we took a week off, so let's say we thoroughly enjoyed the time away!

We cruised on Royal Caribbean to the Western Caribbean on the Liberty of the Seas on a crafting and stamping cruise hosted by demonstrator Jenn Gulch.   She had tons of Stampin' Up! crafting projects for us to create, and you can see some of them HERE. If you are interested in attending the 2018 cruise hosted by Jenn, scroll to the bottom of this post for a link.

Today I am going to share the little cards and gift boxes I brought with me to give to our cabin steward, our waiters, and other special people on the ship.  We like to leave a little something on the bed for the cabin steward each night, and also treat the waiters on the last night. 

I used the "Layered Leaves" September Paper Pumpkin kit and a few other supplies to create the little gifties.  For all the supplies, scroll to the bottom of this post, please.

We put money in them and I think they enjoyed each treat!

Ghirardelli Chocolate Holiday Gift Ideas

 

Thank you for your super kind comments about my Year of Cheer Holiday Catalog product review and projects that I've been sharing with you this week!!!  Perhaps my favorite projects in this collection are the Ghirardelli Chocolate Holiday Gift Ideas featuring candy wrapped in the Year of Cheer specialty foil paper!!!

I'm highlighting 3 different ideas for you today, each featuring Ghirardelli chocolate!!!

 

Year of Cheer Stampin' UP! Christmas / Holiday gift giving idea featuring Ghirardelli chocolate and fun metallic snowflakes and embellishments and acetate gift box by Patty Bennett

 

Above: here are 6 Ghirardelli chocolates, each wrapped up in a scrap of Year of Cheer paper, and neatly snuggled into the new Clear Acetate Gift Box from Stampin' UP!  You'll be able to view the details of these great clear gift boxes on page 13 of the 2017 Holiday Catalog, or HERE in my online store.

 I decorated my box with a foil snowflake, stamped stitched shape circle (Snowflake Sentiment set, pg 35), Silver Tinsel (pg 21), Banners punched from Year of Cheer paper (Banner Triple punch), and Year of Cheer embellishments (pg 37).  You might ask why I stamped with Cajun Craze ink?  I think it looks great with the Copper paper and accents!

The Year of Cheer paper, is easy to miss.. check out the bottom of page 37 to see it.  I am telling you.. EVERY person I've shown these projects to has said, "Wait, where is that paper??"... I do think it's easy to overlook it in the catalog!  (see it HERE online).

 

Below: this is what the back looks like. If you wrap the Champagne foil belly band around and put the seam under the embellishment in the front, you don't see the seam on the back.

You can see here that the 6 medium size Ghirardelli chocolates fit PERFECTLY into the clear acetate gift box!!!!

Below:  I had 4 Ghirardelli candy pieces left over, so I wrapped each one with Year of Cheer paper, put a glue dot in between each one, stacked them up, and tied them up with some Silver edged ribbon!!  how fun! How quick!  How Cute! :)

My 3rd Ghirardelli candy holiday gift idea for you today is simply to take a large chocolate bar and wrap the Year of Cheer paper around it, and add an embellishment.  I used a Silver Foil Snowflake, and punched/die cut elements from the Year of Cheer paper and Whisper White paper.   The for you stamp is found in the annual catalog in the Birthday Blooms stamp set #140655 / 140658

Year of Cheer Note Card set in Acetate Gift Box

 

One of the holiday gift giving ideas I featured in my Year of Cheer suite product review video yesterday was this Acetate gift box with set of 4 cards and envelopes inside.  The cards feature gold, silver, copper and champagne foil paper, accents and embellishments as well as other fun products from the Stampin' Up! 2017 Holiday catalog.

These wonderful Acetate boxes are NEW in the Holiday catalog, and you might laugh at this, but they are hard to see.. not just because they are clear (LOL), but because there are SO many new products in this catalog, and there is just so much to grab your attention that you literally might MISS THEM!!  They are shown on the middle of page 13 in the catalog, #144628, or click HERE to see them in my online store.

Now, here is the exciting part.. you get 10 in the package for only $6.50!! whohooo!!

 

If you missed my video yesterday, watch my Year of Cheer Holiday Catalog product review video HERE

Year of Cheer suite from Stampin' Up!, 2017 Holiday catalog. Note card set in Acetate gift box, perfect for Christmas gift giving! by Patty Bennett

 

As you can see in this blog post and on my video yesterday, I put a set of 4 cards with envelopes in my box.  You could probably fit 5 or 6 if you had very few embellishments, but I think 4 is a really comfortable number, AND it makes a GREAT gift!!

I featured the Year of Cheer specialty paper (shown below) on each card.

While I did concentrate most of my Year of Cheer projects toward Christmas and the Holiday season, these products are not just for the holidays... check out the wedding (or anniversary) card I created with these products below!

 

Wedding Card idea featuring Silver Foil paper and Gold Foil Snowflake. Year of Cheer suite from Stampin' Up!, 2017 Holiday catalog. Note card set in Acetate gift box, perfect for Christmas gift giving! by Patty Bennett

 

I decided to try out something fun with the Gold Foil Snowflake.. I punched a circle out of the center of the snowflake and added it to a Very Vanilla stitched shape framelit circle, then attached the outer ring of the snowflake to the back of the die cut circle... nobody will ever know.. oh .. well, just those of you reading this :)

The wedding card above features the Silver Foil Paper as the card base, and what I call the "fireworks" pattern of Year of Cheer paper.

The Season's Greetings card below features the Gold Foil Paper for the card base and gold plaid pattern from the Year of Cheer paper package. Both cards feature a gold foil snowflake, Very Vanilla Stitched Shape die cut circle, and stamped images from the Cheers to the Years stamp set.
