Making Gift Boxes for Christmas







Well, here at The Warren, there has been a bustle of crafting with several classes on Making Gift Boxes in the run up to Christmas. Personally, I had always shied away from making my own gift boxes, prefering papier mache blanks, that I decorated, but then I found Sam, of Pootles Papercraft, and her large selection of box making utube videos. The mystery of box making was unlocked, and in the main, they are just SO easy, so long as you have the right tools for the job ... there are not many needed at all and once purchased, will last for many years.

Making your own gift boxes can transform a simple gift into a beautiful gift and is made that much more special by the time and love it has taken for you to make that box for someone you care about.

I can see Santa having a large request list for Stampin Up gifts this year!!! So here is what Santa really needs to know about ....

The first two tools are the most essential part of your kit, and these are:

The Simply Scored Tool


Item Number 122334 £25.95

I know the trimmer comes with a scoring blade, but there is something cathartic about using the Simply Scored Tool and if looked you look after it, it should last many, many years. This is an absolute must if you are going to make more than just a couple of gift boxes/bags. There are additional plates you can purchase that fit onto the Simply Scored Base including:


  • Simply Scored Metric Scoring Plate (item number 127531 £10.95)
  • Simply Scored Diagonal Plate for making envelopes etc (item number 125586 £10.95)
  • And the Simply Scored Borders Plate (for fab finishes on envelopes, boxes and cards) (Item Number 125586 (10.95)
If you lose your stylus, then you can easily replace it for a mere £3.95, but so long as you always place the stylus back in it's holder on the Simply Scored Tool, you should be fine


And the Stampin Trimmer
(with or without the rotary extension)

Item Number 129722 £25.95

I just love my Stampin Trimmer, and you can purchase additional replacement blades and cutting mats to ensure your trimmer lasts for yonks! It comes with both Imperial and Metric measurements and has an extension bar that allows you to use 12" x 12" cardstock easily.

Then you need 

a selection of cardstock for making the boxes
Stampin Up have a huge range of co-ordinated cardstock with prices starting at £6.25 for a pack of A4 card (24 sheets). If you go for a particular colour collection, you can purchase selection packs wthat contain a couple of sheets of each of the colours in the collection. There are 5 collections in all 
  • Subtles
  • Brights
  • Regals
  • Neutrals 
  • In Colours
These colour collections are co-ordinated throughout their range of cardstock, ink pads, Designer Series Papers, Ribbons & Trims, Buttons, Brads, Stampin Write Pens. Begin with just one colour collection and build up your stash over time,

Next you need some Craft Scissors (Item Number 108360 £24.95) and a pair of Paper Snips (Item Number 103579 £8.95)

To make nice crisp folds for that professional finish to your box, you absolutely must have a bone folder (Item Number 102300 £5.75.) It will last you a lifetime, so well worth the cost outlay.

Next you need some Designer Series Papers (DSP) to decorate your gift bags and boxes. Alternatively you could have just one colour card (e.g. Whisper White or Very Vanilla) and stamp images onto the card to create the background.






Afternoon Picnic (Item number 131390 £9.95)

Gingham Garden (Item Number 129310 £9.95)

 Polka Dot Parade (Item Number 126902 £9.95)

Venetian Romance (Item Number 130144 £9.95)

There are also Designer Series Paper Stacks that co-ordinate with each of the colour collections. Check out my Demonstrator Inline Shop to view all of the DSP's. There will be something for everyone!

Now we need to have some sticky stuff to glue your gift boxes together, and here are my favourites:

Sticky Strip
Item Number104294 £5.50 per roll (9.1m)

Great for when you need a heavier weight adhesive. Fab for 3D embellishements



Next comes my mainstay for sticking cardstock together, Good
 old Multi-purpose Liquid Glue (Tombow)
Item Number 110755 £3.25

This is a really fast drying permanent glue. It may look like PVA glue, but it is way more adhesive then that!! A little goes a long way. It also allows for a little movement when you first bring the edges together for making fine adjustments when you bring the edges of boxes together.


And we finish with
 SNAIL Adhesive
Item  Number 104332 £5.50 & Refils item number 104331 £3.75)

Perfect for sticking the Designer Series Papers (DSP) onto your gift box. Suitable for lightweight items only. If you want something a little stronger, then mini glue dots would be idea Item Number (103683 £3.95)

And here is the really fun biit, playing with 
Ribbons & Trims

Stampin Up has a huge range of ribbons, trims and bakers twine, in many colours that co-ordinate with their cardstock, DSP, ink pads and embellishments. Stock with one colour collection to begin with and build your stash over time
Prices start at £2.50


And that is pretty much all the essentials, apart from rubber stamps and ink pads. 

Here are some I made earlier

SizzixMagnetic Platform

The Magnetic Platform from Sizzix is Genius!!
 
I have used Post It Notes and masking tape to try and hold my Thinlets. I have stopped breathing whilst slowly, slowly lowering the top cutting plate before turning the wheel of my  Sizzix Big Shot ... but there were still too many occasions where the die had moved whilst going through the machine making the die cut useless. BUT NO MORE!!! I was delighted when my Magnetic Platform arrived. the die stick to it almost like glue.
 
You get best results by ensuring your cutting plates do not become too distorted (turning them over regularly helps), so I always keep a spare set that are completely flat. The platform works brilliantly with the new Thinlets Die that is one of my blog posts. It is worth every penny!!!
Magnetic Platform Item - Number: 130658 £35.95
Standard Cutting Pads -  Item Number:113475 £8.50
Extended Cutting Pads -  Item Number: 113478 £17.95

Memory Keeper scrapbookin classes are aimed at the bereaved, allowing individuals to keep the memories of their loved ones alive through scrapbooks. It is a therapeutic, if emotional way, of documenting the life of their loved one. Our quiet semi-rural surroundings allow you to work at your own pace, and if needed, take time out, in a supportive environment. These sessions are run on an ad hoc basis to try and fit in around treatments, appointments, lethargy, etc. We are happy to work with small family/friend groups (up to 6 people), or on a one to one basis. £10 per session.

Season of Style This & That Journal

I know, I know .... Halloween has not quite arrived and here I am writing a blog about Christmas products, BUT we are almost at Stir Up Sunday, so I wanted to share with you some of the images from the Seasonal Catalogue that will help you plan your Christmas preparations. How? Well that would be with the Season of Style This and That Journal and it's accessories.

You may recall my previous posting on the standard This and That Journal, but the seasonal one is quite different.


Stampin Up
The Journal Allows you to organise your Christmas by having separate sections for buying gifts, the cost of purchases, Christmas Recipes and much more.

You can personalise your Journal by decorating it using the matching Season of Style Designer Series Papers, Ribbons, Buttons, Rhinestones etc.
Stampin Up
Use the planner for sketching your designs for cards, gift wrappings, or cake decorations.
You could also organise your table decoration and place settings.

Stampin Up
The Season of Style co-ordinated stickers are so much more decorative than using Post It Notes to tab and decorate your pages. You could also use them on your gift wrappings

Stir Up Sunday is just round the corner, so get yourself organised by putting your favourite Christmas Recipes in your journal, where you can easily access them year after year. You can also purchase the co-ordinating Washi Tape and rotary This and That stamp that records much more than just the date

 I already have my Season of Style This and That Journal and I am having great fun getting started.

If you want to order your own and get ahead on Christmas then you can order in three ways.
You can either Telephone me on 07759587004 or 08432896848

email: kim.tolton@hotmail.com
or
via my Demonstrator Website which allows on-line ordering.

Watch out for my next blog which will be showcasing our handmade Christmas Cards, Gift and Gift Packaging Ideas, an our Christmas Tree Advent Calendar.

Introduction to My Digital Studio Laptop sessons

MDS Holiday Ornaments Card
MDS Merry Little Christmas Card
Did you know that you can get one months free trail download of My Digital Studio? Well you can. If you are wondering what role an electronic card and scrapbooking digital programme has in today’s world? Well the answer is lots! I use it for most of my class preparations, none of the digital stamps are retired, and you can resize your stamps, punches etc to the size for your project, which you cannot do with the real thing! If I still haven’t sold it, then book a taster session with us, and download the programme on a free 30 day trial basis just before your leson, and you can bring along your tablet or laptop and play with me in real time … I am even considering running ‘virtual’ MDS workshops in the new year so you do not have to come to me, but we communicate via the internet instead! You can read more about MDS at the My Digital Studio Website


Stamp Clubs

Our new stamp clubs run on a monthly basis and require a commitment from you to place a minimum order from the current Annual or Seasonal Stampin Up catalogue each month. The amount you commit to depends on the amount of months you wish to commit to. Our commitment to these classes is to demonstrate a wide range of cardcraft techniques, products, supporting you as individuals and as a group, allow you to work at your own pace, and most of all, help you to have FUN and hopefully leave us feeling relaxed and refreshed.

Stampin Club 5
The club runs over 5 months with a maximum of 5 places. Each attendee will be allocated a month where they are the designated Hostess when they join the club, so you, or your club/group gain from the Hostess Benefits.  Each attendee commits to order a minimum of £25.00 of products from the current Stampin Up catalogues each month whether or not you are able to attend class.

Stampin Club 7
The club runs over 7 months with a maximum of 6 places. Each attendee will be allocated a month where they are the designated Hostess when they join the club, so you, or your club/group gain from the Hostess Benefits. The Hostess of the 7th Month will be the result of a raffle at the end of the final session. Each attendee commits to order a minimum of £18.00 of products from the current Stampin Up catalogues each month whether or not you are able to attend class.

Stampin Club 10
The club runs over 10 months with a maximum of 5 places. Each attendee will be allocated a month where they are the designated Hostess when they join the club, so you, or your club/group gain from the Hostess Benefits.

memory keeper & memory Maker 

scrapin classes

These classes are very close to our hearts. They are aimed at helping to create or keep memories through scrapbooking when life gets tough. The Memory Maker classes are aimed at individuals living with life limiting conditions to make memories, creating a lasting legacy for their family and friends, and for themselves when the going gets extra tough.

Memory Keeper scrapbookin classes are aimed at the bereaved, allowing individuals to keep the memories of their loved ones alive through scrapbooks. It is a therapeutic, if emotional way, of documenting the life of their loved one. Our quiet semi-rural surroundings allow you to work at your own pace, and if needed, take time out, in a supportive environment. These sessions are run on an ad hoc basis to try and fit in around treatments, appointments, lethargy, etc. We are happy to work with small family/friend groups (up to 6 people), or on a one to one basis. £10 per session. If you are experiencing financial hardship, please talk to us to see if we can subsidise your sessions.
