...the 2014 Holiday Catalog from Stampin' Up! It is full of spectacular items and fabulous project ideas. The best part is that you can order from it starting today! Drop me a line if you don't have your copy yet, and I'll get one in the mail to you immediately.
I was so excited to use all my new stuff, that I had to make two projects to show today! Fall is my favorite time of year, and I can't wait for it to arrive. (I also hope we actually have some fall weather this year.) I made these as a sign to Mother Nature that she can hurry up with the crisp weather.
First up is the fun box. I made it with the brand new Gift Box Punch Board. I used a full 12" x 12" sheet of DSP from the Color Me Autumn Designer Series Paper package and followed the directions on the punch board to complete it. The great thing about this box, is that it will technically go together with no adhesive, but if you want to make it more sturdy and fill it with stuff, you would just need to glue the inside flaps down to the sides.
I used the Gold Sequin Trim (found in the Annual Catalog) to tie around the box.
This is what your paper looks like once you have punched and scored it before assembly. It was super easy to assemble.
For my card, I used another sheet of DSP from the Color Me Autumn stack. Did you know that almost all of our DSP is double-sided? This card features both sides of one sheet. The pattern that is on the side pieces reminds me of Indian corn.
The stamp set that I used on the tag is For All Things. It is probably my favorite set out of the Holiday Catalog. The inks that I used are Mossy Meadow, Hello Honey and Soft Suede. I'm going to have to make more cards with those three colors, as they are really pretty all together.
