Hi and welcome,

Our theme for the Ink, Stamp, Share Monthly Blog Hop is Christmas and it’s great to be able to participate in it with other talented demonstrators. 

Ink, Stamp, Share Monthly Blog Hop Header

I’ve got a coordinated set of projects using the Perfectly Plaid bundle and I added some alternate colours for this project. 

I used the Gold Mini Pizza Boxes which are in the Wrapped in Plaid suite and embossed it with the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder. In order to emboss all sections of the box, I had to insert it several times in the die cutting machine. Some sections were overlapped as the box was too wide and I added shims on top instead of the top plate.

The card uses a panel of Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper and then adhered a piece of embossed Gold Foil on top. The trees have been stamped in Melon Mambo and I stamped and punched a second set for the Mini Pizza Box at the same time.

I like the pink against the Soft Sea Foam and Shaded Spruce, giving a different colour palette for this paper. Then I cut 2 strips of DSP for the box and wrapped one piece around the bottom, cutting off excess, adding the other piece on the lid of the box and doing the same. Then I wrapped the twine right around. 

Top Tip

Wish you had a third hand when tying bows? Use a glue dot to hold the first knot to the box. Then tie another knot to secure and tie your bow. The glue dot stops the twine from slipping around. This also works for ribbon.
