Glad you could join us for the 4th Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop! This month our theme is “All Wrapped Up!”
It was so fun coming up with different ways to wrap various gifts for Christmas!
The first thing I made was a peek-a-boo box using Stampin’ Up’s! White Gift Boxes. Stampin’ Up! provides easy to alter gift packaging. The boxes are 3″ x 3″, so a pretty good size. I made a couple things with the boxes and also used the Petite Cafe Gift Bags for the cute paper bag. Fun fact: the Petite Cafe gift bags are poly-lined, which means you can put food inside and nothing will show on the outside of your bag. They are great for those cookie or fudge gifts!
On this white gift box, I made a bow using the patterned paper. I absolutely love these little mugs using the envelope punch board. Such a unique way to wrap up candy or give a gift card.
And speaking of gift cards, no Christmas would be complete without a Santa gift card holder.
Last but not least, I made a cute sour cream container using the Petals & Paisleys specialty designer series paper. This Star of Light stamp set and thinlets are definitely my favorite item of the season.
I hope you enjoyed our projects and hopefully found some ideas to spruce up your gift wrapping this year.

Obsession: n. the domination of ones thoughts or feelings by a persistant idea, IMAGE, or desire. Bow: n. said image.
It’s true! I have become obsessed with the Stampin Up! Bow Builder Punch! I can’t use it enough! I’ve used it with glitter paper, DSP and solids that are embossed! I’ve been playing around with Christmas cards and Birthday cards all day today. These are just two of my little sneak peeks – and they are rough drafts done in a rush before I had to pick the boys up from school.
Jenn and I are getting ready to run our first BFF Stamping Booth selling our handmade cards at the Barnett Elementary School Holidays on December 11. If you want to see the finished product and maybe even purchase a box of Christmas cards or Greeting cards come on over and see us!
