Today we have a lovely little freebie for you just in time for the holiday season. This sweet little Gift Box: Petal Flap design. It comes with two different tops–a scallop and a plain one. Both are wonderful for giving candy or small gifts.
The great thing about cutting your own gift boxes is how little real estate they take up because you can store them flat. I don’t know about you, but I need all the real estate I can get. :)
Also today the beautiful Miss Jen Gallacher has come to our Christmas party! And she has some lovely ornaments that she has made to give as gifts. I have a hunch one might fit in the free box today. ;)
Here’s Jen to tell us all about them.
One of my favorite gifts to give during the holiday season are handmade ornaments. That way every time my family and friends hang the ornament on their Christmas tree, they remember just how much I love them. Using stamps to decorate ornaments is easy with a few key elements. What you end up with are gorgeous, farmhouse-inspired ornaments like these:
To create these ornaments, look for house or tag shaped ornaments. I found mine at JoAnn. If you can’t find this shape, adapt this project to fit the shape of ornament you do find.
Step 1: Trace the ornament onto black cardstock. Cut out the shape. Stamp a sentiment on the bottom part of the cardstock with Versamark stamping ink. Heat emboss the phrase with white embossing powder.
Step 2: Place the stamped image inside the ornament, smoothing the paper as you adhere it. Glue a mini wreath to the top of each ornament.
Here’s a closer look at the embossed phrase. Embossing powder makes any phrase really pop off black cardstock.
You can use any of the Kerri Bradford stamps sets to create your own, unique ornaments. These will make gifts your loved ones will truly cherish and make every holiday a bit more magic.
Oh my! These are ever-so sweet! And simple too! How cute would these be on a tree? What a brilliant idea to decorate the tin houses. And you know me and houses. ;)
Thanks for sharing this awesome idea with us today Jen!
