Paper Crafting Blog Hop Kindest Gnomes

Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia. We have a wide array of encouragement themed projects to share with you. You may have arrived from Tracy’s blog, all the way from Australia! Hop all the way around using the Next buttons until you get back to me so you see it all!

I’ll be sharing a sugar loaded treat today, my fancy decorated cupcakes! A friend was preparing for surgery so I delivered a box of cupcakes and a Paper Pumpkin kit to keep her busy while she is recovering. First, here are the cupcakes…

Bakery decorating is my latest hobby which I’ll share more about in future posts. I have struggled with container boxes while I deliver treats to taste testers because of their cost and storage space requirements. I finally realized I could make my own boxes. So here are the steps I used to do that.

From my ever growing stack of designer series paper backer sheets emerged a box bottom and a top. Place one backer sheet at a time on the Simply Scored Scoring Tool and score at 3 and 9 inches on 2 adjacent sides. Four cupcakes fit perfectly in the center of the score lines.

The cut along score lines to make box tabs.

Form the box and adhere the side tabs with some tape. I opted to have the shiny side facing in which is also the side with the product info.

Line the box with tissue from the Wonderful Snowflakes embellishment packages. Cover the product info with your choice of patterned paper to coordinate with the enclosed gift card instead of tissue.

Carefully insert cupcakes and slide a lid over the box. The lid is created in the same manner as the box bottom. So they are a snug fit.

Tie some ribbon, add a hand stamped greeting card and make your delivery!

Paper Crafting Blog Hop With Sympathy

bloghopbannerapril2018-001

Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia. We have a wide array of sympathy themed projects to share with you. You may have arrived from Krissi’s blog. Hop all the way around using the Next buttons until you get back to me so you see it all!

It’s nice to have a stack of sympathy cards on hand that are ready to be mailed. I mixed the white washed designer series paper from the Heart and Home package with Nature’s Prints stamp set, Gray Granite Shimmer Ribbon, Night of Navy ink and Gray Granite cardstock.

A left over, negative, die cut Sun Prints designer series paper was cut in half and tucked along either side of the card to pull in the blue tones of the design.

Thanks for hopping with us each month. Now click on the next image to zoom to Julia’s blog and see what fun project she designed.
