Creation Station Blog Hop – Wrap It Up

December 4, 2016 8 Comments

Creation Station Blog Hop

Welcome to the December, 2016 Creation Station blog hop where we are wrapping it up!

Enjoy today’s inspiration as we share a variety of ideas to help you wrap up your holidays.

Today, I’ve created a couple of boxes to help you with your holiday gift giving.

I love creating boxes!

My first box is an elf hat

that I made using the Cutie Pie Thinlits.

This box  came to me yesterday morning as I was watching the video from Easton Area High School Band’s participation in the QVC Christmas parade on Friday evening.  The twirlers made me think of elves!

These boxes are perfect for a few sweets, a gift card, a small gift, favor and even table decoration.

Using the Cutie Pie Thinlits, I cut the box/hat from a piece of Emerald Envy cardstock.  After putting it together with Tear and Tape, I gently bent the top of the hat to one side.

Then, I used the Cutie Pie Thinlits to cut  1-1/2″ wide pieces of Real Red cardstock to fit around the bottom of the hat.  After adhering the pieces in pairs of one long and one short side, I lightly sketched on a triangular pattern and then used my scissors to cut out the shape.  Before adhering the pieces to the base of the box, I used my Bone Folder to gently curl the points.  Once the Real Red pieces had been attached to the box, I used hot glue to add  White Pom Pom Trim.

Next, I put a circle of hot glue on my Silicone Craft Mat and wound up  a circle of Pom Pom Trim in the glue.  Once it had cooled, I punched a 1/16″ hole in the top of the hat and threaded a piece of White Bakers Twine through.  Then, I attached the cooled Pom Pom Trim circle to the ends of the White Bakers Twine with a dab of hot glue.

That Cutie Pie Elf Hat is cute, huh!?!

My second box was made using the Gift Bag Punch Board.

I started with a 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of Blushing Bride cardstock.

It’s been punched and scored using the “side” score line on the board.

Before assembling, I randomly stamped snowflakes from Flurry of Wishes in Versamark and then embossed in Gold.  Tear and Tape was used to hold the box together.

The lid is a 2-1/2″ x 11 piece of Blushing Bride.  On the sides of the lid, I’ve stamped the smallest Flurry of Wishes snowflake in Versamark and embossed in Gold.  To the top of the lid, I added a piece of Blushing Bride to give it a more finished look.   Before adhering this piece, it was stamped with the second largest snowflake from Flurry of Wishes  and heat embossed in Gold.

Finally there’s that yum-mee bow on the top!  I layered 1/4″ Gold Natural Trim and 1/2″ Very Vanilla Lace Trim and made several loops.  Once it was the desired size, I added a circle of hot glue to my Silicone Craft Mat and pressed the bottom of my bow  into the glue.  Then, I carefully lifted layers and dotted in hot glue to hold the whole thing together.  No tying — just layered loops and a little hot glue!

While the bow was cooling, I added a looped piece of Gold Sequin Trim to the lid with hot glue.  At the loose ends of the sequin trim, I used hot glue to adhere Flurry of Wishes snowflakes embossed in Gold on Vellum cardstock.  They were cut with Snow Flurry punch. After peeling the cooled bow from the Silicone Craft Mat, I attached it to the lid with hot glue and added a loop of 1/2″ Very Vanilla Lace Trim in the middle to finish it.

Here’s a quick video for making the Pentagon Gift Box
