Containerize your gifts this Holiday Season

containerize feature

This month I started a second Stamp Club. Do you live in Whatcom County ? Want the fun of stamping with others, learning something new every month? Plus every 3-6 months as hostess you get new product for free!  You can choose from the first Friday at 7pm or the first Tuesday at 10am. This month we are making 3 gifts we will containerize. We will be making 3 boxes or gift containers to hold your gifts as the season of giving starts up.

Containerize your Lite

When I saw this awesome new Stamp & die set, I decided to see if I could make a functional lantern. Since the Lantern Builder Framelits has two distinctly different lanterns my first step was to pick my lantern design. Then I needed to chose my materials. While appearance is important, functionality is key as well. As a result the main body needed to be either vellum or window plastic. I chose the softer appearance of the vellum. Then paired it up with basic black for a wrought iron feel. Due to the shape of the die cut all four sides could not be identical. So I removed the filagree from the two  side panels. After assembling the lantern I put a battery operated tealight inside.

For our second container we made a stocking box. This was a design I came up with for a demonstrator event last month. All the details can be found in this post.

Containerize your Coffee

For the third container, I created a small box to hold a decorated mini coffee cup. Back in August one of my customers saw the double mini coffee cup holder on Dawn Griffin’s site and asked if I could show her how to do it. I duplicated that and then decided to try to make a similar design for holding one cup instead of two. I used the Merry cafe stamp set from the 2017 Holiday catalog along with the retired Cucumber Crush cardstock and Designer Series Paper from last year. Now that is a color I would like to see return when Stampin’ Up does a color renovation. How about you? What color have they retired that YOU want back?

If you are interested in attending either of my stamp clubs email me at to sign up. For those who live live too far away, I am offering detailed tutorials for $5 ea.
