Tidings of Christmas – Gift Card Pocket & Cocoa Gift Bag

Tidings of Christmas – Gift Card Pocket & Cocoa Gift Bag

Laura Milligan Cocoa Gift Bag and Gift Card Pocket Holder Facebook Live Creations July 26 2021

In my weekly Facebook Live yesterday, I shared two cute and very simple ways to package hot cocoa, and a gift card.  First was a Hot Cocoa packet, complete with a candy cane and a bit of chocolate.

This project’s base is a 6″ x 12″ piece of Designer Series Paper –  folded up about 5″, leaving a bit of the inside DSP showing.   I used Tear and Tape to adhere the sides, and created a tag with the Perfectly Plaid stamp set and coordinating Pine punch.

I used a tag die (love these!) and added a bit of a sneak peek with the Real Red Ruffled Ribbon coming in our new Mini that begins on August 3.

My second project uses one of our In Color 2021-2023 Ombre’ Gift bags.  Simply fold up the bag  -this creates 2 pockets.

I wrapped the bag with the Evening Evergreen Chevron Ribbon and again used a tag die as a the focal point of my bag.

My stamped words are from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set.  I used the Pine punch with the Tidings of Christmas 6 x 6 DSP to create the sweet tree.

The front pocket of the card holds a little card from your personal message.  This consists of a panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock measuring 4 1/4″ x 3 1/2″, a panel of Basic White measuring 4″ x 3 1/4″.  I added a 1″ x 4″ piece of DSP, a cherry cobbler sprig cropped from the Christmas Trimmings dies, and a bow (Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack).

Tidings of Christmas – Cookies Box & Gift Card Holder

Tidings of Christmas – Cookies Box & Gift Card Holder

Christmas Gift Card and Cookie Box Laura Milligan Tidings and Trimmings Hand Made Stampin' Up!

I held a Christmas in July event earlier this month, both in person and “to go.”  The PDF tutorial for all of the projects made for this event are available for purchase -scroll down to the bottom of this post if you’d like the tutorial!

These projects today are not projects from that event, but some of the additional projects that I had on display.

Today’s projects were made during my Facebook Live Take-Two on Thursday.   Both feature the Tidings of Trimmings bundle in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.   Also featured is the Tidings of Christmas 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper that is currently part of our Designer Series Paper Sale!  CLICK TO SHOP THE SALE IN MY ONLINE STORE

This first project is a great little gift for anyone – or would be a darling favor for a holiday event!   It contains a cookies, of course!   The base of this project is one of the 3 1/8″ x 3 1/8″ Acetate Card Boxes – they come in a pack of 10.  You can use them to package a cute set of 3 x 3 cards and matching envelopes – another great gift idea – but I love the cookie idea – who doesn’t like cookies!!  A little bit of stamping, and die cutting and you have an adorable gift!

I wrapped some dsp around the box and secured it to the bottom of the box.  I kept the opening of the box on the right hand side – that way, when someone is ready to eat their cookie, all they need to do is untie the box – and the box decoration will remain intact!

I used our Foam Adhesive Sheets for the “Cookies” die –  they make the entire word a dimensional – and I love the look!

My next project was a super simple wrapped gift card.  When I say super simple, I mean it! Just take a small strip of DSP and wrap it around the gift card, attaching to the back of the gift card.  Crop out a small tag from the Tailored Tag die set (a favorite of mine!), stamp with Evening Evergreen Ink and add a Soft Succulent star and tag hole re-enforcement.   Embellish with a Holiday Rhinestone and then attach to the bow with some White Baker’s Twine.  Done! And such a great way to “dress up” a simple gift card!

My In Color Club – Month Two Ombre Gift Bags

My In Color Club – Month Two Ombre Gift Bags

in color club project by Laura Milligan Stampin' Up! demonstrator Ombre bags

 

Each month I treat my In Color Club members to an extra “something” – ribbon, or bling, or in this case – I package of our new Ombre Gift Bags. I also include something stamped – normally it’s a card but since I gave them a package of the bags, I decided to give them an idea of how to “dress them up!”

Not sure which color I prefer – I really love them all – and love the added touch of the Loose Flower Flourishes as a little accent on the butterflies!  Which is your favorite?

I used the Quiet Meadow dies to crop the flower sprig and the butterfly.   The white scalloped panel and the words are  from the Color and Contour bundle.  Both are favorites of mine from the new Annual catalog!

A True Love Card Holder! A Great Gift!

A True Love Card Holder! A Great Gift!

Life is Better With a Friend Like You

This week I’ve been sharing different ways to use the True Love DSP – of course you can switch up these ideas by using any DSP you have in your stash.

Today’s project makes a great gift – a card holder for four cards (you could easily make six and they would fit!)

True Love Designer Series Paper, My Top Pick, Laura Milligan, Shop Online 154281 _ $11.50

The holder uses an Acetate Card Box. I simply cut it in half at four inches to create two pockets- one for the cards and one for the envelopes.

You can watch my Facebook Live Take 2 to see how easily this goes together! Enjoy!
