Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek

Today I'm using another new item from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog; the Christmas Traditions Punch Box.  I love these punch boxes.  The boxes include a 6 piece stamp set that coordinates with the punch plus two mini ink spots--Call Me Clover and Real Red-- and a clear block.  Start with this punch kit and just add paper.  It's a great kit if you have limited supplies, but want to create Christmas Tags and Cards.  The tin itself includes a traditional holiday scene and its perfect for presenting a gift of home made cookies or candies, or fill it with an assortment of hand made cards as a special Christmas Gift.

I decide to make a small treat box to go with this Holiday card I created in an earlier post.  


This card was inspired by the Stampin' Up! All is Bright Designer Series Paper that I used on another sneak peek card I showed last week.  

The treat box I made today, is two pieces that are assembled using Tear & Tape.   I've included more photos in an earlier post where I made this box using a punch box from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog. 

Cutting dimensions:  
Long piece:  8-1/2" X 3-1/4".  
Shorter piece:  4-7/8" X 4-7/8"

Long 8-1/2" piece:  On long side score at 1/2", 3-1/2", 4-1/2", 7-1/2", using the Simple Scored Scoring Tool

Shorter piece:  Score at 15/16" on all four sides, using the scoring blade on your trimmers

Pinch in the corners of the box and use Tear & Tape to hold the corners to the box.
Use Tear & Tap on the bottom and front and back sides to hold the box created from the 4-7/8"n x 4-7/8" to the wrap-around piece.
To hold the box closed, punch a 1/2" circle and attach it to the font of the box with the one of the new silver brads from the Metallic Brads collection.  Use a Paper Piercer to create a hole through the 1/2" circle and the front of the box through the box layers to insert the silver brad.  

The top of the box is decorated with All is bright Designer Series Paper, a Gold Foil die cut from the Stained Glass Thinlits, and a snowflake created with the Blizzard Thinlits Dies.  Then I used the Stitched Shapes Thinlit to punch a square out of Pear Pizzazz, and stamped one of the images from the Christmas Traditions Punch Box onto Whisper White and punched it out using the Punch in the Tin.   

  • Then I used the Stitched Shapes thinlit to punch a square out of Pear Pizzazz to layer under the stamped image.  
  • I stamped one of the images from the Christmas Traditions Punch Box in Old Olive onto Whisper White, and punched it out with the stamp from the Christmas Traditions Punch Box. 
  • Then I added Gold Metallic pearls to the corners of the Gold Foil die cut and the center of the snowflake

  • If your Wish List has grown past the $99 mark, think about signing up as a demonstrator this month or before you place your new catalog order on September 5.  On September 5, you can select $125 in Holiday catalog merchandise for $99 and then place another order at your demonstrator discount for the rest of your holiday catalog wish list.  You can do it all online or contact me and we'll work through your Starter Kit order together.
