SU Merry Cafe Candle with Gift Card

December 8, 2017

I made up some little Christmas gifts this weekend using the SU Merry Cafe stamp set and the Coffee Cup Framelits. I was inspired by Christine Miller’s holder that I tweaked a teensy bit putting together.

Start with a 2-3/4″ x 11″ piece of cardstock.  On the 11″ side, score at 1/2″, 3-1/4″, 3-3/4″, and 6-1/2″. On the 1/2″ section, place Tear & Tape. In the next section, die cut or punch a circle to fit whatever size candle etc. you want to place in the holder.

Next, on a 2-1/2″ x 9-1/4″ piece of cardstock, score at 1/2″ on the 2-1/2″ side. On the 9-1/4″ side, score at 1/2″, 3-1/4″, 6″ and 8-3/4″.  Snip each of the 1/2″ sections on the long side into angles as shown below. Place Tear & Tape on the two 1/2″ x 2″ sections on each end and the middle section.

Flip over the cardstock and place Tear & Tape on the other two sections as shown below.

On the piece of cardstock with the circle cut out, place a 2-1/2″ x 3-3/4″ piece of Coffee Break DSP. Fold up and adhere the 1/2″ section with the Tear & Tape to the DSP covered panel as shown below.

Adhere the other piece of cardstock to the cardstock above as shown below.

Here is another pic that shows it adhered on the bottom. Remove the other pieces of Tear & Tape from the other flaps and slip into the sides of the bottom.

Next, attach the last two flaps behind the tall side of the box as shown below.

Adhere three 2-1/2″ x 1-3/4″ pieces of Coffee Break DSP to the sides of the box as shown below.

Stamp the sentiment for the gift card tag and adhere to the gift card. I used a 2-1/2″ circle punch for the Real Red, a 2-1/4″ circle punch for the Early Espresso, and a 2″ circle punch for the Whisper White circle.

I used some Garden Green patterned paper from the Be Merry DSP for the coffee cup tag. I adhered the DSP to a white cup base to make it sturdier. I placed the candle holder into a cello bag and closed with some burlap twine.

SU Garden in Bloom Calendars with Merry Medley Packaging

December 8, 2016

Looking for a sweet little gift to give to those who touch your life? How about a calendar they look at frequently and know that you care for them! I made these calendars for my wonderful group of stamping friends. I picked a sentiment from SU Garden in Bloom that I wanted them to read a lot.

“Hope you’re feeling special today…because that’s just what you are!”

Of course, the little BEE is ME reminding them each day!

I am blown away by how blessed I am to have met so many delightful women through my classes…such dear gals I truly cherish! I look so forward to seeing them each month and keeping in touch in between- love you all bunches!!!

The flowers are from the SU Botanical Builder Framelits and the calendars are from TayloredExpressions.com.

These calendars are a standard A2 size (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″) with a stand up mechanism adhered inside on the bottom the card. See the photo below for dimensions. I found it easiest to put adhesive on the inside bottoms of the card base and then adhere the easel mechanism one side at a time lining it up against the edge. I love how they stand up so nicely with the easel.

I even had a friend email me a pic of her calendar sitting by her computer:)
