Stampin' Up! Curvy Keepsakes Box

There are so many new Holiday Catalog stamps sets and new products to play with, its difficult to decide which to show each day as we get closer to September 4, when Customers can order!  I'm always drawn to Christmas Card sets because for me that's the largest collection of cards I produce all year.  And I need as much lead time as possible to get them all done.  However, today I decide to show you a cute treat holder that you'll use for so many occasions, that you'll want to put this high on your Shopping List when the new catalog become available for ordering. Add Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box is item #150644. 

This is one of those items you'll order and keep forever.  You'll use it and use it, and every time you make more Mini Curvy Keepsake Boxes, people you give them to will smile, thank you and enjoy a little happiness.  Die cut them from every different kind of paper you have in your paper stash....Cardstock, Foil, Designer Series Paper, and Vellum Cardstock.  Every Mini Curvy Keepsake Boxes will turn out perfectly!         

I made a large batch of the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Boxes the morning of one of my recent classes.  It was a last-minute idea and I didn't think I would have time, but I was pleasantly surprised that they don't take any gluing or tape to assemble, so I was done in a flash!

For this batch of Mini Curvy Keepsakes Boxes, I used one of the prints from the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer series Paper from the Brightly Gleaming Suite on pages 30 -31 of the new Holiday Catalog. I cut the paper into 6" X 12" strips and was able to produce two boxes from each 6" X 12 strip.  That also means that our 6" X 6" Designer Series papers are the perfect size for creating these boxes.

The Mini Curvy Keepsakes Boxes Die includes an assortment of stitched shapes to use as tags for these cute boxes.  I wasn't sure if I wanted to use Whisper White tags or Very Vanilla tags, so I cut some of both.    

The die cut is a single piece that simple folds together and is secured at the top using pre-cut slots over the handle.  I couldn't believe how quickly I was able to create a large number of these treat holders.  I filled then with with a single Lindor Chocolate Truffle.  That's all it needed.

The coordinating Tiny Keepsakes Stamp Set includes several sentiments sized for these tags.  I stamped my favorite in Pretty Peacock ink to coordinate with colors in the Designer Series Papers. Purchasing the stamp set and die together as a bundle will save your 10% over purchasing them separately.  Be sure to use the bundle item #, 152390.   

I showed samples of this box to my classes earlier this week.  The ideas for using this are endless.  Think Christmas, Thanksgiving, Baby Showers, Wedding Showers, Wedding Favors, Halloween Treats, Random Acts of Kindness, Co-Worker Treats, Church or Sunday School gifts, Tip a waiter, Card Class Gifts.  FAST! No Gluing!  Add this item to your Shopping List now while you're thinking about it.

Reminder:  Final Shipment of Trimmer Blade  - August 27, 2019   

The Final Batch of Trimmer Blades (Item 126995) arrived early.  Stampin' Up! expected to receive this shipment from the vendor in September, and therefore told you they would provide another batch of blades in September.  However, because the blades arrived early and they do not want to hold them back from you, Stampin' Up! is going to make these final blades available during the last week of August.

The final batch will be available on Tuesday, August 27, 15 10:00 am (MT), and when they sell out they will be gone for good.

It is important that if you want to place an order for these blades that you do so directly through my online store.  In the past, blades have sold out within minutes, and individuals placing single orders have had more success than demonstrators placing orders for multiple customers. Make sure your on-line account is completely up to date with a current credit card on file BEFORE August 27.  Then, be ready to log into my online store at exactly 10 am (MT).  If you log in early, you may have to log out and log in again after 10 am (MT) as the order system will need to update before you can order. Again, the Trimmer Blades Item # is 126995). The limit is three blades per customer.  

New Paper Trimmer:  Also, Stampin' Up! announced that they will have a new paper trimmer available for demonstrators to purchase before the end of 2019, which will sell for US$25.00.  (Another reason to join Stampin' Up! as a Demonstrator, now.)  That likely means that customers will be able to purchase the new paper trimmers in early 2020.  Don't hesitate to contact me with questions.
