Welcome to a bonus edition of the Artisan weekly hop! Because of the timeline for August, we need to add in an extra day to be able to show you all our projects. Up for today, the Facebook projects shown on the Stampin’ Up Facebook page. As usual, I know that Jeanna has blown you away with her awesomeness! If you are starting here, just hop around using the next buttons at the bottom of our posts.
I thought it would be fun to combine these awesome Tag a Bag Gift Boxes with the Season of Style Washi Tape to create an easy and fun holiday packaging idea. I started by cutting out the triangles with the Big Shot using my Perfect Pennants Die. What are they made of? The new Coaster Board!! And yes, it is really fabulous to use! I love that it has a little more “oomph” which makes it perfect for creating these trees. Then all I had to do was add the Washi Tape.
Just look at how the Old Olive pattern on the tape lines up when you use it all by itself. Cool, huh? I had two trees that were the same but it seemed to be missing something so I created another one that use all of the patterns from this set of Washi Tape. That did it for me! I added in another triangle made from Naturals Ivory card stock behind the Washi Tape triangle to tidy up the back. Because I’m me (and I LOVE a bow), I added in little “fork” bows (triple wrap) to the top of the trees. They make me so happy!! To create a belly band for the box, I embossed some Cherry Cobbler card stock with the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder. I did have to emboss twice to get the whole piece done. Finally a little sentiment from Oh, Goodie stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink. Now as I looked at the box, it seemed to need another something so I wrapped around some more Washi Tape near the top. I love that I can make these ahead and have them all ready to fill with wonderful treats for the holidays.
And hey, what do you know…triangles again! I am loving them! Linking this to the Moxie Fab Trendy Triangles Challenge.
I hope you enjoy this project as much as I did! For my local stampers this will be the first one we make at my Artisan Class in September! Now time to get on with the hop. The lovely Mercedes Weber is next and you will love what she has created.
