12 Weeks of Christmas - Start Wrapping It Up!

I am not quite done sharing the 12 Weeks of Christmas ideas, but I know many of you are already wrapping up little gifts for people you will see this week like teachers, co-workers and friends and family who might be traveling over the Christmas holiday.  So, I thought it was time to share this great idea!  Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper or DSP is a great way to create a perfectly co-ordinated gift and tag box.

  • Real Red – 2” x 4”
  • DSP – 8 ⅝” x 11 ⅛”, score at 2 ½” along each edge
Box Instructions:
  • Fold each score line of both the Old Olive Cardstock and the DSP for the Box.
  • Cut a slit along the long edge into to the perpendicular score line on the Old Olive Cardstock for the box. Repeat step on the DSP.
  • On the Old Olive box, fold flap in then add Tear & Tape on each flap then adhere the flaps to the small end piece on both ends of the box. This is the bottom of the box. The box will measure 6” x 3” ½ x 2 ½.”
  • Repeat previous step for the box cover.
  • Tie a bow with the ⅝” Burlap Ribbon around the box to help hold it together.
Tag Instructions:
  • Create banner by using the Banner Triple Punch on the Real Red Cardstock Strip.
  • Punch the tag hole on the Real Red Banner using the Detailed Trio Punch.
  • Die cut the scalloped circle from Soft Suede Cardstock using the 2 ½” Scallop Circle and Crumb Cake Circle with the 2 ⅜” circle from the Layering Circle Framelits.
  • Spritz the Crumb Cake Circle with Alcohol using the Stampin’ Spritzer then run it through the Big Shot with the Corrugated Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
  • Adhere Corrugated Circle to the Scallop Circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue then attach to the Real Red Banner.
  • Use Old Olive Cardstock to die cut deer with the Detailed Deer Thinlits.
  • Using Snail Adhesive on the back of the deer, adhere the Gold Metallic Thread then attach the Gold Mini Sequin Trip with Glue Dots.
  • Adhere deer to the Corrugated Circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Using Real Red Ink, stamp the Tags & Tidings on Whisper White using the Stamparatus.
  • Die Cut the tags with the coordinating Christmas Tags Thinlits.
  • Adhere the “Merry Christmas” to the front of the tag with Mini Dimensionals. TIP: keep the “small die cut” circles and add the Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals behind the circles. You will need to “double” up the Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals and add a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional on the back so it attaches to the neck of the deer.
  • Using the Take Your Pick Tool, adhere the Red Rhinestones.
  • Thread the gold cord through the front of the Real Red Banner making certain to also add the “To and From” tag to the back of the banner.
  • Tie the the tag to the Burlap Ribbon.
