I’m really sorry my blog post is so late today. The first of the month generally means more work on my website with new products being launched. However when I was right in the middle of it the power went out! We’re currently experiencing very high winds and apparently that caused the problem, but it’s fixed. For now…
So without any further delay here’s a fairly simple cookie box.
MINI PIZZA BOX BASE
I began with a Mini Pizza Box then I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow) to add a piece of Cajun Craze Card to the top. I followed this with the linen fabric design from the Come To Gather 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper (DSP) Pack.
Next I used the Starburst Punch to punch out some So Saffron vellum from the Perennial Essence 12″ x 12″ Vellum Pack. Then I cut some Gold Glimmer Paper using the #3 plain-edge die from the Layering Circles Dies (counting from the smallest up). The glimmer paper was then fixed to the vellum using liquid glue.
My sentiment comes from the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set. Using Cajun Craze ink I stamped it onto Shimmery White Card, then punched it out using the Timeless Label Punch. With that done I trimmed off the top of the sentiment using my new Paper Trimmer.
To complete my cookie box I used Stampin Dimensionals to attach the sentiment to the Gold Glimmer Paper, and then add the layers to the top of the box.
Now all I need to do is make some nice cookies to fill it. If the power stays on that is.
So today Stampin’ Up! have some new products available for customers to order.
First there’s the new and improved Paper Trimmer. I’ve had mine for a couple of weeks now and love it. The blades are longer, and the track seems more stable. It cuts the finest slivers of card, and can cut more than one layer of card at a time. If you’re a papercrafter who struggles to convert inches and centimetres, then this trimmer is definitely for you as it has both.
Included with the trimmer is one cutting blade and one scoring blade, and at just $34 CAD it’s a great price too. Additional packs of 4 blades will be available starting in January at $16.25 per pack.
Also launched today is the Christmastime Is Here suite. This suite can be purchased as a complete package using the suite item number, or you can order all the various parts of the suite individually. If you want the stamp set and coordinating dies make sure you use the separate ‘bundle’ item number so you save 10% on these. You can check out the Christmastime is Here suite via my online store, but be aware stocks are limited, so make sure you order before they run out.
Stampin’ Up! created this video introducing the various parts of the suite.
