Christmastime Festive Treats! Stampin’ Creative November Blog Hop

Welcome to October’s Stampin’ Creative Global Blog Hop. 

Our Design Team is made up of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from throughout the world and we love blogging together each month to share new Creative projects with you all. You’re currently with Jackie Noble – aka CreativeJax – in Porirua, New Zealand.

This month’s theme is Festive Treats.

Maybe I should have made a Halloween treat as it is Halloween today – but no –  I’ve got a festive Christmas treat bag/box.

It is in Christmas colours – so definitely “Festive” – but it could be used for many different occasions. 


Christmastime is Here Festive Treat Bag


Project Details

 (Note: see the Product List below for images & links to more information about the items)

Base: Kraft Pillow Box (folded closed at the bottom but not the top)

Paper/card: Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper, Gold Foil Sheets

Stamp sets: Delightful Day

Ink: Versamark Pad, Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Marker (from Regals set)

Tools: Pretty Label Punch (to make handle opening), Rose Dies (for Whisper White Label & gold lattice), Heat Tool

Accessories: Gold Embossing Powder, Gold ¼” Ribbon, Gold Glitter Enamel Dots


Helpful Hint:

When adhering the gold foil sheet to the bottom of the Pillow Box, place it so the bottom edge is at the level of the points of the box. This will allow the box to stand.

Oh, I love gold foil, so I had to take another picture for you!

 Until next time
