Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team’s theme is “Tag, You’re It” – tags or 3D projects to get you inspired for the upcoming gift season. We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
I chose to make Thanksgiving treats for my hop project, two candy bar wrappers and a decorated Mini Paper Pumpkin box.
Here are my two finished candy bar wrappers. Aren’t they cute?
The boy, candy bar wrappers, started out with a piece of Cinnamon Cider CS, 5-1/4″ x 7″, scored at 2″, 2-1/4″, 4-1/2″ and 4-3/4″.
The collar is 1-1/2″ x 7″. I trimmed the top to have a shoulder slope, as shown in the photo above.
His shirt is a piece of Plaid Tidings DSP 2″ x 7″. This was adhered to the base piece 1-1/4″ up from the bottom and I drew a line to separate the pants using a Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend. The belt is a 3/8″ x 7″ strip of Basic Black CS with a 1/2″ square of Brushed Metallic CS and a 1/4″ square of Basic Black CS over that to make the buckle.
I used So Saffron CS and the scallop heart punch from the Heart Punch Pack and then punched a section away using the 2″ circle punch to make the beard. The head was made using a 2″ circle of Petal Pink CS with a hand drawn face. (Sponge daubers and Petal Pink ink for cheeks, Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend for the nose and Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker for the mouth). I had the google eyes in my drawer and thought they just looked good there. Don’t you think?
Her is the girl of the candy bar wrappers. For the girls hair, I used a piece similar to the beard to make the top of her hair (covered mostly by her bonnet). A second So Saffron scallop heart is glued to the back of her head as the bottom of her hair. Her apron is mostly hand cut and then a scalloped circle die was used to make the bottom of her apron. A Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker was used to do the stitching by hand. Her bonnet and his hat were also hand cut using paper snips.
Using the same Plaid Tidings DSP as his shirt, I covered this Mini Paper Pumpkin Box. Next, I cut a labels using the Celebration Labels Dies with Cinnamon Cider and Very Vanilla CS. The coffee cup, sentiment and coffee beans were stamped in Cinnamon Cider ink.
Here is a close up of the labels on my Mini Paper Pumpkin Box.
Stampin’ Tip: I stamped a second coffee cup onto a small piece of DSP and cut out the center part of the cup and adhered it over the CS.
Inside the box, I have a surprise gift card holder and some Hershey Nuggets wrapped in Plaid Tidings DSP (3/4″ x 3-1/2″).
The gift card holder is made by using an 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Cajun Craze CS, scored at 3-1/4″, 4-1/4″ and 5-1/4″. I used the paper trimmer to cut a slit in the one section that will hold the gift card before adhering the liner to the box. This was so easy and so fun that I’ve decided to make another one as my Facebook Live next Monday! This can be used for so many occasions!
