Such nice little treat holders – or gift card holders – for the holidays!

NEW Video Tutorial: How to Make a Gift Box!

Stampin' Up! Prettypapercards Handmade Gift Box - Peggy Noe - stampinup

I’m back today with a video tutorial on how to make these quick and easy gift boxes! I showed you one of these darling little boxes the other day on the Pals Blog Hop HERE. I’m personally making a bunch of these for my holiday gifts and I was thinking you might like to make some too! Here’s the video:

The foil paper takes this box from ordinary to FABULOUS! Stampin’ Up! has a nice selection of foil papers (gold, silver, copper), but I personally love this Champagne Foil. And when you run the piece on the top of the box through the Big Shot with the Winter Wonder Embossing Folder, it really creates a WOW factor!

Stampin' Up! Prettypapercards Gift Boxes - Peggy Noe - stampinup

In addition to the Champagne Foil Box, I’ve also made another box using Cherry Cobbler card stock and panels made from the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper (4 panels 1-3/4″ x 2-3/4″). The top of this box is a piece of Whisper White card stock cut to 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ and embossed with the same embossing folder. AND, you can get this embossing folder FREE from me!

Free Embossing Folder!

Place an order for $75 or more in my online store, and use my Monthly Host Code for November QHJE9JVE, and you will receive from me as your FREE GIFT the Stampin’ Up! Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder used in the box above! This embossing folder will add beautiful texture to all your holiday projects! CLICK HERE to learn more!

Holiday Pillowbox!!

Stampin' Up! Trim Your Stocking Thinlits Dies pillowbox - Peggy Noe - stampinup

When I saw this adorable pillowbox in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog I just knew I had to make it! It’s on page 23 if you want to look 🙂 So, of course I had to order the Wishes All Aglow stamp set for the cute ho-ho-ho lights, and the Trim Your Stocking Thinlits Dies that make the pillowbox.Stampin' Up! Pillowbox Trim Your Stocking - Peggy Noe - stampinup

The pretty olive and black paper is the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper. Love Love Love!! The lights are so darling, they just make me smile! I stamped them in Versamark ink and then embossed them with Gold Embossing Powder. Behind the lights are Vellum snowflakes cut out using the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits Dies.

Stampin' Up! Pillowbox Prettypapercards - Peggy Noe - stampinup

The pillowbox is surprisingly made using these multipurpose thinlits dies. They create a cute stocking that has a pillowbox backing so you can tuck a gift card right in the stocking! Or, you can just make the pillowbox by itself, as I’ve done today.

Here’s a picture from page 15 of the Holiday Catalog, showing what the stocking looks like next to the pillowbox. And there are so many other cute dies in the set!

Come back tomorrow because I’m going to show you some non-holiday pillowboxes to show you the versatility of these dies!

What do think of these cute pillowboxes? I love your comments! Leave me a comment HERE!

Quick and Easy Halloween Treats!

Stampin' Up! Painted Autumn Treat Bags - Peggy Noe - Painted Autumn

Are you looking for a way to make some quick and easy Halloween treat bags? It’s a snap with just a few supplies.

Stampin' Up! Painted Autumn Halloween Treats - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Use any treats you like. I love to use candy corn because it’s so colorful. I put the treats in cellophane bags, folded the tops of the bags and stapled them shut. Then I folded one Delicate White Doily on top of each bag and secured it with a decorated clothes pin.

Stampin' Up! Painted Autumn Fall Treats - Peggy Noe - Painted Autumn

The cute little pumpkin that is on the doily was fussy cut from a sheet of the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper and adhered with some Fast Fuse Adhesive. The same paper was also used to decorate the clothes pin, and a bow of Linen Thread was double tied on the pin. Easy, right? See all the products I used in the list at the end.

Autumn Mini Pizza Box ~ Tic Tac Toe Challenge!

Stampin' Up! Painted Autumn Pizza Box - Peggy Noe - stampinup stampin upHave you ever seen mini pizza boxes? I hadn’t…until Stampin’ Up! came out with them! 🙂 This decorated mini pizza box is my interpretation of this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge. Here’s the Tic Tac Toe Board we are working with:

For my project I used the first column down on the left (ribbon, floral, patterned paper) and the middle row across (floral, yellow, die-cut/punch). I started out working with the items in the first column down, but after I finished my pizza box I realized that the middle row across also applied!

Stampin' Up! Mini Pizza Box - Peggy Noe - stampin upThis project has no stamping, did you notice? It’s true! The top of the pizza box is covered with the beautiful Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper. And the pretty sunflower is simply cut out of the same paper! Easy, right?

Stampin' Up! Mini Pizza Box - Peggy Noe - stampinupSo what do you put in these little cuties? Several Ghiradelli Chocolate Squares would fit, or a few tea bags in their foil packages. But my favorite thing to put in these boxes is a set of little 3 x 3 handmade cards with envelopes. It makes a lovely gift!

Thank you for stopping by today! Be sure to pop over to the Tic Tac Toe Challenge website HERE to see what the other designers have come up with!

Sneak Peek ~ Beautiful Paper Rosettes!

Stampin Up! Be Merry Kit Rosette - Peggy Noe Stampinup

I love paper rosettes, what about you? They can be made by hand and I have to say, it does take a while. So if I ever find them pre-made I grab them up right away! Well, Stampin’ Up! has made me very happy – the new Holiday Catalog has a darling holiday kit called Be Merry, and this kit has 10 (seriously, 10!) beautiful pre-made white and gold rosettes!

Stampin Up Be Merry Kit Rosettes - Peggy Noe Stampinup

Look at these pretty guys! These rosettes are a full four inches around! The photo above was adjusted with an antique shading, and shows the white rosettes with the gold rim. There are five of these and 5 gold dotted ones.

Now I have to tell you that I didn’t put the kit together as I was supposed to 🙂 I couldn’t help myself, I just had to do a little something different! Instead of making the Christmas rosettes, my mind kept telling me…bows and lace! And these In Color Bitty Bows just look so cute right in the center of the rosettes! What can I say?

Stampin Up Be Merry Ornament Kit Rosettes - Peggy Noe Stampinup

Aren’t they adorable? These can be used as ornaments, package toppers, they could make a wreath, or even hang on a piece of jute and be a banner for the fireplace!

All of the Stampin’ Up! products are so versatile, I just love that. I’m going to put together another kit for you in the next few weeks so that you can see it assembled with the red and green holiday theme – as it’s supposed to be!!

PLACE A PRODUCT ORDER OF $75 or more (before shipping and tax) in my on line store this month and you can earn a spool of Linen Thread FREE. Linen Thread is going to be perfect for all your fall and holiday projects!

Pretty Sour Cream Container and Video!

Sour cream containers are such great treat holders, and they are so easy to make! Today I have a video tutorial to show you just how easy they are!

For this project I’ve used the gorgeous Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack. These papers come in a 6 x 6 size, which is perfect for the sour cream containers, and isn’t each paper pattern beautiful?

Delicate ribbons and lace tie the openings of the containers together until you are ready to open them and eat the yummy treats. I imagine these being served at a lovely English tea and they would have nuts in them 🙂

The Fabulous Tab Punch!!

Why is it so fabulous? well just look at these tabs I punched out for my catalog! They are cute and they are just what I need to help me find things quickly in the catalog!

What else can you use the tab punch for? The photo above is from Stampin’ Up! and it shows a cute little pocket card with a tab that pulls the card out of the pocket! Is that darling or what?

For my tabs I chose cardstock colors I thought looked good together and with the catalog front and just started punching away! You can see that the tab has a small rectangular base that adheres to the page or paper. You simply punch, fold the punched tab in half, and adhere the front and back rectangular bases to the page or paper. It’s quick and easy! For my tabs I used Fast Fuse Adhesive to adhere them to the catalog pages. Then I used a black felt-tip pen to write the words on the tabs.

This is a great punch to have in your collection as I know it’s going to be used a lot! For more details about the punch, just click on the photo above! And, it’s a great time to order the Tab Punch as it will count toward your Bonus Days Coupon!

JULY ONLY! For every $50 order in July, you receive a $5 coupon to use in August! Click below to start shopping!
