Yesterday I showed you some gifts that my nail tech commissioned me to do (see them HERE!) While looking for those small magnet trays, I found these larger narrow magnet trays on Amazon that are 2-3/4 x 9 and thought they would be perfect for holding Stampin’ Up! dies while my stampers are using them. I know how easy those small dies can be lost on a messy desk. I have a knife bar from years ago that I use but thought this looked even better. I believe they are actually made for holding small automotive pieces.
I wanted to add some candy to the tray, so found these Peppermint Bark Bars that were a PERFECT size to add to the packaging!
Because of the awkward size, I looked for an acetate box to hold the tray and candy. Found these boxes on Clear Bags that measure approx. 3 x 10 x 2.
Next up is decorating! Snowmen are my favorite decoration for winter holidays, so I made these. I think it is safe to show them now that almost everyone has received their gift.
- The snowman body is 2-1/2 x 8-1/2 Basic White cardstock.
- The hat is 1-3/4 x 2-1/4, and the brim is 1/2 x 3. A 1/4 x 2-1/4 strip of Heartwarming Hugs DSP is the hat band.
- Two punches of the holly leaves with the retired punch from Garden Green cardstock and a retired Red Glitter Dot for the hat decoration.
- The eyes are 3/8″ circles, the mouth is five 1/4″ Circles, and the buttons are 3/4″ circles punched from Basic Black cardstock. They are highlighted with a White Gel Pen.
- The cheeks were sponged with Flirty Flamingo Ink with a sponge dauber.
- The nose is the end of the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch, then highlighted with a Pumpkin Pie Marker for the carrot lines.
- The bow is retired 1-1/4″ red Striped Ribbon.
- The snowman was adhered to the acetate box with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Aren’t they just the CUTEST! I loved making them for my stampers! I have a couple more ready to assemble…wonder who I should give them to? lol!
