Experience Creativity with Tags

Last week, I shared a Stampin’ Up! video highlighting a stamp set from the Experience Creativity Brochure.  Today, I’m sharing the Delightful Day Tags Bundle project from the brochure.  All of the items that Sarah is featuring in the video are available in the Experience Creativity Brochure and in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.   Watch as Sarah shows how easy it is to create gift tags for boxes, bags and other treat packaging.  If you are a beginning stamper, this is a fun first project.

Heart Embellished Mini Pizza Box

Today’s project, Heart Embellished Mini Pizza Box, is a quick project that you can make for Valentine’s Day or for any time you want to share a little love with someone.  The attendees in the latest class were able to recreate the heart embellished mini pizza box for themselves. The mini pizza boxes from the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog are one of my favorite to use when giving a small gift or treat to family and friends.  The ways to decorate are endless. The steps to recreate the box are below the project photo.

Heart Embellished Mini Pizza Box

Materials:
  • Mini Pizza Boxes
  • Cut the following from the All My Love Designer Series Paper (DSP): heart pattern: 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″ for top, 4 pieces of 3/4″ x 3-1/4″ for sides; Belly Band coordinating pattern: 1-1/2″ x 10″
  • Lovely Lipstick Cardstock: 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″; 2-1/4″ x 2-1/4″ 
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 2-1/4″ x 2-1/4″
  • Small floral heart from All My Love Designer Series Paper
  • Meant to Be Cling Stamp Set
  • Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies
  • Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder 
  • Basic Gray Classic Stamping Pad
  • 1/8″ Whisper White Sheer Ribbon
  • Basic Rhinestone Jewels
  • Liquid Adhesive and Stampin’ Dimensionals
Instructions for Embellishing Mini Pizza Boxes:
  1. Assemble mini pizza box. Note – the shiny side is the box interior.
  2. Use adhesive to attach the All My Love Designer Series Paper to tops and sides of mini pizza box.
  3. Wrap the coordinating strip of Designer Series Paper around the box to create a belly band.  Tip: wrap so that it paper meets on top of box – the embellishments will cover the seam.
  4. Stamp “Just for You” on Whisper White Cardstock using Basic Gray stamp pad.  Cut with the medium scallop heart die.  
  5. Cut the Lovely Lipstick cardstock.  One large narrow heart die and one with the medium scallop heart die.  Notice that the medium scallop heart die cuts both a heart and an open scalloped, stitched heart.  You will use the open scalloped, stitched heart.  (Save the small Lovely Lipstick heart for another project.)
  6. Texture emboss the large Lovely Lipstick heart using the Subtle Dynamic Texture Impressions Embossing Folder.
  7. Use the small heart die to cut the small floral heart from the All My Love Designer Series Paper.
  8. Refer to photo for placement of the hearts.  NOTE: Be sure that you only put adhesive on areas that will attach to the belly band.
  9. The sentiment heart is attached using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  
  10. Embellish with rhinestones and small Whisper White bow.

While grocery shopping, I saw individual packages of Pepperidge Farms Chessmen Cookies.   The packages fit perfectly in the boxes!Mini Pizza Box with heart embellishment and cookie treats

Petal Palette meets Mini Pizza Box

While attending OnStage, I participated in a swap so I opted to use the mini pizza box and embellish it to create a WOW 3-d project. One of my favorite stamps in the Occasions Catalog is the Petal Passion Suite and it has become one of my “go to” bundles so naturally I reached for it to use for creating a topper for the box.  Using a strip of the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper (1 3/4″ in width), a belly band was made to wrap around the mini-pizza box.  Then using the large circle framelit from the Stitched Shaped Framelits and Whisper White cardstock, a base to was cut to use for adhering a layer of leaves, a loop of mini sequin trim and the large floral spray from the Petal Palette stamp set, The leaves were cut from Tranquil Tide card stock using a leaf framelit from the Bouquet Bunch Framelits set.  The floral spray was stamped using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink then sponge daubers were used to apply Berry Burst and Tranquil Tide inks.  The sentiment is from the Perennial Birthday stamp set and was stamped onto a strip of Berry Burst cardstock using the tuxedo black ink and cut using the Petals and More Thinlits Dies, which were also used for cutting the stamped floral spray.  Dimensionals and glue dots were used to hold the layers in place. The finishing touch was to add a double looped bow using solid Whisper White Baker’s Twine and adding a few “dew drops” from the Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes.  Recipients could easily slide the belly band from the mini pizza box to see what goodies were inside for them to enjoy!

Altered Mini Pizza Box

This project has been on my desk since before the holidays waiting for me to photograph and share with you.  I was asked to prepare samples using the “A Little Wild” bundle for the Luv 2 Stampin GA team meeting and decided to make alter a mini pizza box to create a gift box.  You’ll notice that the box is a Bath & Body Hand Sanitizer that seemed designed especially to coordinate with the “A Little Wild” stamp set!

A window was cut in the mini pizza box using the Layering Circle Framelits.  Additionally, the framelits were used to cut the rim framing the window from Sky Blue cardstock.  The box top was lightly sponged with Sky Blue ink.  The bees were randomly stamped on the box top and also along the sides of the box using Archival Basic Black.  The body of the bees was colored using a Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker.  The bear was stamped onto Shimmery White cardstock and colored using an aqua marker with Soft Suede ink.  Note the shading on the bear.  The hive was stamped using Soft Suede onto a scrap of Crushed Curry cardstock.  
I was happy that the mini pizza boxes made it on the Carryover List from the Holiday Catalog as they are the perfect size when presenting someone with “a little something”.  More ideas using the boxes will be shared in upcoming posts.

Last Minute Gift Wrap Idea

While wrapping the last of the Christmas gifts today, I had a couple small gifts needing packaging.  Off to my craft room to find something that would work…the Mini Pizza Boxes were perfect and by using a few other items in my craft room, the wrapping was done in record time.  Now all gifts are wrapped and stashed under the Christmas tree!   
 
Quick Christmas Gift Packaging using Stampin’ Up! Mini Pizza Boxes
After assembling the pizza boxes and adding the gift, Stampin’ Up! Baker’s Twine was used to wrap around three of the boxes.  The center two boxes were wrapped multiple times with the Baker’s Twine, taped on the back and then the strands were separated on the front to appear like a tree.  Each was embellished with a tree topper!  The other was wrapped on all sides with the Baker’s Twine and then a Stitched Felt Embellishment was added.  On another of the boxes, two of the Boxwood Wreaths Embellishments were unwound and then rewrapped to create one larger wreath for adding to the Mini Pizza Box.  Baker’s Twine was used to mimic a hanger and a Season of Gifts Mini Gift Bow was added to add a bit of color to the wreath.  So if you have some last minute gifts needing special wrapping, be sure to look through your Stampin’ Up! supplies.
 
Tomorrow is Christmas Eve and I’m expecting family to start arriving mid-day so my next posting is planned for later in the week.  In the meantime…
Thanks for stopping by and check back next week.
