Baker's Box Treat

I have a few last Holiday Catalog projects to share with you. This one is from a few months ago - oops!

I colored the Baker's Box with Coastal Cabana ink. I first tried to spritz it, but I wasn't getting very good coverage. I ended up using a sponge dauber to finish adding and evening out the color. I think a sponge brayer would probably be the most efficient way to add color to the box. I've since added some to my craft room!

These boxes are food safe, and I added a large slice of cheesecake to mine. This was a birthday treat for Jenna's teacher. The Glittered Organdy Ribbon finished it off with a little sparkle. I love this ribbon!

Ink: Coastal Cabana, Tuxedo Black
Paper: Whisper White
Accessories & Tools: Baker's Boxes, Sponge Daubers, 5/8" Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon, Stitched Labels Framelits, Big Shot, Rhinestones

Today's cards are inspired by those pictured in the Holiday Catalog.

I used the colors Real Red and Call Me Clover, and the 6" x 6" DSP Stacks as the base for my cards. Add a few coordinating ribbons and embellishments, and the cards are done! I love finding inspiration in our catalogs!

Facebook Live: Quick & Easy Gift Bag

On yesterday's Facebook Live, I showed how to make a quick and easy gift bag using two sheets of 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock and one 12" x 12" sheet of Designer Series Paper. I followed the instructions from Ronda Wade's video here. You can watch my demonstration here. Here are a few measurements to help you out:
Score each piece of 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock down the long side at 1 1/2" on both sides. Score each piece at 2 3/4" down the short side, just on one side. Cut up your score line to the 2 3/4" score line on both sides to make two flaps.
Cut 4" off the top of the DSP. Then cut at 5 1/4" twice so you have two pieces of DSP that measure 5 1/4" x 8".

I am also linking up with two design challenges this week, TGIF Challenges - Anything But a Card, and Global Design Project - Tis the Season.

The tags on the bags were stamped and punched using the products in the Christmas Traditions Punch Box, on sale for only $27.00 right now! All other supplies are listed below. Please note that I used retired gold tinsel trim on one of the bags. I would recommend the Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon as the perfect substitute!
