Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Team September Blog Hop - showcasing the 2018 Holiday Catalogue


Blog Hop

It's time for our monthly Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Blog Hop. Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring the Holiday Catalogue. We hope our blog hop inspires you to get creative and make some fabulous Christmas creations. If you would like a copy of the Holiday Catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

Today I am showcasing a couple of gift packaging options, using decorations from the Holiday Catalogue. These little gift boxes always come in handy at Christmas for gift cards, as well as small gifts for co-workers or friends such as soy melts, tea light candles, handmade soaps, chocolates or other treats. 

My first gift box would be especially good for treats given the image I have used (Macarons maybe?). I love these Kraft Pillow Boxes. They are pre-printed and you get 10 boxes for $8.75. All you need to do is close up the ends and decorate.

To decorate this Kraft Pillow Box, I have used:

  • Mixed Satin ribbon with some Silver Metallic Thread.
  • Image from Sa Santa stamp set, which I coloured with Stampin' Blends.
  • Festive Farmhouse Elements which I have coloured with Champagne Shimmer paint for extra sparkle.


My second gift box is a decorated mini pizza box. These are available to purchase in packs of 8 and have a food safe coating. They are also great for mini cards and envelope gifts. I have used the Santa's Workshop Specialty Designer Series paper to decorate this box. I cut the image and the corners from the DSP too, so the only stamping on this one is the greeting on the sign (greeting from Itty Bitty Greeting, cut out with Classic Label punch). There is also a bit of Pool Party spongeing on the background circle.

It's a little bit hard to see, but I have used some of the coordinating Poppy Parade 1/2" Textured Weave ribbon on the sides, and also some of the Tranquil Tide glimmer paper (from the Joyous Noel glimmer paper pack)on the top of the box as the very base layer.

I hope these projects have given you some ideas for some fun and simple gift boxes. Now it's time to head over to the next blog hop participant, the lovely Rebecca Jacavou.
