December 2019 Kre8tors Blog Hop Christmas

Welcome Kre8tors! So excited to have you here for the Kre8tors Blog Hop! Be sure to use that Next button below to hop along to the next amazing blog post for some more Christmas project inspiration!

I’m sharing this adorable treat holder that would make a cute stocking stuffer, work goodie, place holder, etc. It’s inspired by a pin from Pinterest by Mary Fish. I thought it was adorable and had to make a Christmas version to house my tree shaped Reese’s treats.

These are super quick to whip together and would be a great project to make in bulk. If you’re looking for these yummy Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Trees, you can find a box of them on Amazon (click to be directed through my affiliate link). This stocking stuffer goodie features a solid card stock “booklet”, a focal piece of DSP, a sentiment banner, and some beautiful ribbon.

Most all of the materials I used coordinate with the Toile Tidings suite of products in the Holiday Catalog. These products are while supplies last, so be sure to check with your demonstrator you see if they are still available.

Take a peek at my video tutorial to see how quick these come together. Don’t forget to hop along to the next blog for more festive paper crafts!

Kre8tors Blog Hop Bye Bye SAB

Hello Kre8tors! So glad you are joining us for the March Kre8tors Blog Hop! We are saying Bye Bye to Sale-A-Bration! That’s right, at the end of this month, the SAB Sale will be over! Say it ain’t so! Take advantage of the final few weeks to get your hands on some FREEBIES just for shopping. As always, scroll to the bottom of this post, click that Next button, and hop around to get inspired by some amazing projects!

For my projects, I decided to use the Tea Together stamp set from the Occasions Catalog and I paired it with the coordinating SAB Tea Time Framelits Dies. The framelits dies are absolutely FREE with a $100 purchase. By purchasing the items you need to create this card and tea wrap, you will qualify to get the framelits for free!

I CASE’d the Sale A Bration Brochure to make the skinny card, but I didn’t have all the same supplies they used on their sample. But that’s not a problem! Just use what you have on hand! I changed the sentiment and used the same one from the Tea Together stamp set. I also didn’t have the Designer Series Paper, so I used my Buffalo Check stamp instead and it turned out great!

I really like the technique for stacking the tea cups inside each other. Be sure to check out my YouTube video at the end of this post to see how I achieved the look.

I paired this adorable little tea wrap with this SAB project. I was able to get two cards and one tea wrap from one sheet of standard card stock. There’s almost no waste! I love this little tea wrap. It would make a fun little table setting gift for a fun event or tea party.

You can also flip the tea holder inside out and use it as a little easel stand to display your tea bag! I love it when a project does double duty! I can’t wait to hand these adorable little matching paper crafts to my friends and family! They are perfect for any tea drinker! (Hint: Not a tea fan? Leave off the sentiment and put in a packet of instant coffee or a small brick of chocolate!)

I hope you enjoyed these fun projects today! Be sure to check out the video below, and take advantage of those Sale-A-Bration items while they are still here! Click the next button below to hop on over to Sue’s amazing project! And as always, thanks for hopping!

Easy Pillow Box

Hey Kre8tors! Today I have a really FUN video for you! Need a quick little wrapping for a gift? How about a gift-card delivery vessel? This is the PERFECT little Pillow Box that takes one piece of 6 x 6 designer series paper and DOESN’T require a special die cut or machine! Just a piece of paper, some Tear N’ Tape, and a bone folder!

Of course if you’d like to decorate it you may need a few other items, but the basic Pillow Box takes minimal supplies! I decided to add a “gift-card” to mine before tying the ribbon.

If you’d like to learn how to make this amazing Pillow Box, just watch the video below and be sure to head to my shop to get the supplies you need to make LOADS of adorable gift delivery devices! 😉

Christmas Mug Gift Wrap

I wanted to make something unique to wrap some tiny Christmas gifts this year, so I made this tall mug from some cardstock! I love how it turned out, and the Christmas Around The World designer series paper really kicks this cup up a notch!

Yes, the ribbon I used may be retired, but there’s a great alternate option noted in the video!

Tag me on Instagram or Twitter with YOUR kre8tions!

MK Live 12/7 Stocking Stuffers

Do you have trouble coming up with cute ways to package little gifts for Stocking Stuffers? This quick and easy box can hold little chocolates, or small gift cards. It’s 3″ wide, 2″ tall, and 1/2″ thick.

15268064_10202592176921967_8353355553147549926_n

I put some Mini Ghirardelli chocolates in my packages along with a business card and plan to have them handed out to my husband’s co-workers, and pop a few in my purse so I have something a little more exciting than just a business card to pass around to help promote my small business.
