It's time for the Baker's Dozen Studio Challenge. This is a monthly opportunity for us to share what makes our stamping studios hum. Each month we will have a fun, crafty question so we can share our favorites, some tips and tricks, stamping advice and more.
Good things come in small packages! The holiday season is upon us and between Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hanukah, and Christmas there are a ton of opportunities to create and give little treats, gifts, and party favors. Please show us something you'll be giving this year.
I usually begin in October creating some Christmas packaging to have ready to go in December when I need it. Here are three different packaging ideas I like to have in my stash.
Trim a Tree Die Set to create the Christmas tree and then I just added red rhinestones.
The border is cut with the Medium Scallop Die. The papers are from Echo Park, This 'n That Christmas. I used the American Crafts Glitter Tape in Brown Sugar at the top of the border, a quick and easy way to add bling.
I also like to have tags ready to go. They dress up even the simplest brown bag. This bag is the Mini Kraft Bakery Bags Taylor carries in the store. The base of my tag is cut with the Take Note Frame 3 Die. I used a stamp from the Totally Tags Holiday Stamp Set and cut it out with one of the Totally Tags Dies. I layered the small tag on a doily cut with the Layering Doily Small.
I like to decorate a few small cloth pins to attach my tag with. I just covered the front of the pin with American Crafts Glitter Tape in Brown Sugar and created a snowflake with the Make A Snowflake Die.
Here is a cute, little tin, just the perfect size for a gift card. I love this because it make giving a gift card a little more personal. Taylor carries this small hinged tin in the store, along with the Gift Card Frame Die. I created a Poinsettia using the Peaceful Poinsettia Stamp Set and the Poinsettia Dies. The flower is layered on a doily cut with the Layering Doily Small Die.
Here is a look at the inside. I used the Banner Day 1 Die and the sentiment is from the Banner Holidays Stamp Set.
