Pines & Poinsettias

Well, as you can tell, I've been on the CRAZY busy train lately and my poor blog is suffering!  It is not that I'm not creating…I am…just not things that I can post on my blog!


But, here is one project that my Stamp Clubs did a couple months ago, inspired by a Becky Roberts project.  Ferrero Rocher candies are my FAVORITE this time of year (well…truthfully, ANY time of year is good for them!  lol!)  I love how this box is adapted to hold a trio of them!  This would be a nice little office gift or school teachers gift…tuck in a gift card for Starbucks or the movies!  Fun!


Sorry for the wonky picture, it is a little hard to get the full dimension of the holder!  I used a base of Real Red cardstock and Holly Berry Designer Paper Glimmer Stripe and Holly Pattern for decorating it.  I used my Stampin' Write markers to ink up the Pinecone image from Stampin' Up!'s Pines & Poinsettias stamp set.  It was punched with 1 3/8" Circle and layered on a Red Glimmer Paper Scallop Circle.  I added a Garden Green Designer Button tied with White Bakers Twine.  At the top I wrapped Early Espresso Quilted Ribbon around the flap and tied a knot.



The tag pulls out and I put the Grateful Greetings message inside!  LOVE that greeting!  I used a Garden Green Round Tab Punch at the top for the pullout.


Another busy week getting ready for my Tags Stamp a Stack and my husband's holiday party on Friday!  Still need to make gifts for them, too!  Anyone have ideas on using the Ho Ho Ho On Board besides the garland?  I bought a bunch of them on Clearance Rack and thought they would be FUN to use!

This would be an awesome Valentine Day gift/card. Could you plz think about re-doing if for -day? I was even thinking that this would make a great military gift for someone away from home for a holiday and you could put goodies in it. Is there a tutorial anywhere on this? Thanks love it.
