Silver Mini Gable Boxes and NEW Video!

Stampin' Up! Silver Mini Gable Box - Peggy Noe - stampinup

These Silver Mini Gable Boxes are the perfect containers for all your spring gifts and treats! They have a fun closure, are made of shiny silver, and you can use them just as they are or decorate them up in any way you like! I’ve decorated mine for spring, and I’ve made you a video tutorial of just how I did it!


I love these boxes! I’m having an event at my home later this month and I’m going to make one of these for each guest!! I’m planning to put wrapped Easter candy inside 🙂

Stampin' Up! Silver Mini Gable Box - Prettypapercards - stampinup

To add a bit of bling, I’ve combined the Berry Burst Metallic Edge Ribbon with the 1/8″ Silver Ribbon, All I did was tie a bow around the top of the handle and pull it tight, leaving some long tails. Then I placed a Bitty Bow on top of my bow. These Bitty Bows are just adorable, and they come with glue dots already on the back so you can stick them anywhere!

Little Valentine Gift Boxes!

Stampin' Up! Valentine Treat Boxes - Peggy Noe - stampinup

So I had a ladies brunch to go to yesterday and I decided to take each person one of these adorable little treat boxes! I filled them with candy hearts and set one box on each place. They loved them!

Stampin' Up! Lots to Love Box Framelits - Peggy Noe - stampinup

For the boxes I used the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper. The boxes were cut with the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies. I’ve shown you these boxes before and really like them ~ they are for way more than Valentine’s Day!! You can use them to hold lots of small gifts or treats. I’m thinking a tea bag would fit really well too!

Stampin' Up! Valentine Boxes - Peggy Noe - stampinup
This beautiful color I’ve used for the hearts is Berry Burst, one of my current favorite Stampin’ Up! colors. And the ribbon, oh my gosh, I love it, Metallic Edged no less 🙂 These boxes are seriously a snap to make, and I like being able to make a gift quickly, like a hostess gift. You will love them.

Easy DIY Valentine Wreath!

Stampin' Up! Valentine Wreath - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Do you like decorating your home? I love decorating the inside of my home, and my front porch. I usually keep a wreath on my front door, and for the past year or so I’ve had a wreath with leaves and little soft white buds. They look like tiny cotton buds. For each season I’ve added some special trim to my wreath. 

Stampin' Up! Lots to Love Valentine Banner - Prettypapercards - stampinup

For Valentine’s Day I decided to hang a small heart banner across the center opening of the wreath. I cut the hearts using the large heart from the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies, and I used the fabulous Painted With Love Specialty Designer Series Paper for the hearts.

Stampin' Up! Lots to Love Box Framelits - Peggy Noe - stampinup

I cut out several hearts (one is from plain Melon Mambo card stock) and clipped them onto some of the pretty Gold Love Mini Tinsel Trim with Gold Library Clips. Bling bling!! I simply tied the ends of the trim onto branches of the wreath. Easy!!

Stampin' Up! Valentine Banner Wreath - Peggy Noe - stampinup

When we moved into our home we painted our front door black. It was a bold move but now I’m so glad we did it. It looks good, and everything I hang on my door looks great against the black!

Stampin' Up! Prettypapercards Trim Your Stocking Dies - Peggy Noe - stampinupAren’t these Christmas stockings darling? In this picture they look almost like full-sized stockings hanging on a mantle, but truly they are only about 4″ tall and they are made of card stock! Such nice little treat holders – or gift card holders – for the holidays!

This stocking is made with Whisper White card stock and Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper in Tranquil Tide. The loop for hanging the stocking is Silver Tinsel Trim.

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!
