Hello! Can you believe that it's December already? Didn't we just have Thanksgiving a couple of days ago? Oh, wait. We did! Yikes this year is coming to a close quickly. Let's not rush it (especially since I am totally NOT ready for Christmas. Not. At. All.)
Our theme for today's Creation Station blog hop "is put a ring on it." What fun! I have a fun project that's quick to make and oh so pretty. And it rings in the Christmas season, with bells that ring, and boxes that are ringed by belly bands! Take a look.
Aren't these boxes spectacular? I mean, Stampin' Up! offers the most wonderful, coordinating, shiny products. And it was a snap putting these boxes together. Check out the tutorial here.
I started with the amazing Gold Mini Pizza Boxes from the Wrapped in Plaid Suite on pages 12-14 in the Holiday Catalog. These boxes are so shiny!! I made a belly band from Shaded Spruce Card Stock and the Wrapped in Plaid 6" by 6" Designer Series Paper. Then I tied on some Shaded Spruce and Gold 3/8" Striped Ribbon.
Next, I used one of the Layering Circles Dies to cut a scalloped circle from a Gold Foil Sheet and adhered this to the belly band with Stampin' Dimensionals. Then I punched out a plaid tree from the Wrapped in Plaid DSP with the Pine Tree Punch and adhered this to the Gold Foil scalloped circle with Stampin' Dimensionals. Then I threaded three Jingle Bells onto some Linen Thread and tied them onto the ribbon.
I stamped the sentiment from the "Memories of Home" stamp set in Shaded Spruce onto Whisper White Card Stock and punched it out with one of the punches from the Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack. I adhered this to the belly band with a Stampin' Dimensional.
To put a cute finishing touch on the package, I added some Gold Metallic Pearls as ornaments on the tree. Too cute!
I hope you have a wonderful Christmas season with family and friends. Our family is headed to Minnesota (please, let it snow!) for the holidays.
Next up is the delightful Dani Dziama. I know you'll be dazzled by her creation--I always am!
