Melissa’s Kre8tions Live! 11/9 Gift Giving Made Easy!

Today on Melissa’s Kre8tions Live! I showed you how I like to wrap a stamp set using our large cellophane bags and some DSP. This is quick, easy, and you can wrap lots of gifts in a short amount of time!

Using nearly an entire sheet of 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper, this project has very little waste in terms of leftover paper. I had a small 2″ strip left over and used that to make the coordinating card.

This project is great to show off both sides of the designer series paper in any of the catalogs! The gusseted cellophane bags can easily be turned into square bottom bags with a little cardboard insert.

Advent Tree Calendar

As a continuation from yesterday’s video where I showed you how to make a box, today we are putting that box to use. . . 25 times!

I’ve constructed an Advent Tree Calendar out of the boxes and am so excited to show you how I did it! This is NOT my original design, I first saw these last year when my Mother gave one to me as a gift.

I love how this turned out using the Candy Cane Lane DSP and the Real Red Cardstock. I hope you join me in making one!

I used a computer program to make a template for the numbers. I printed them in red ink onto the Whisper White Cardstock. I punched them out using the 3/4″ Circle Punch, and adhered them to the red circle on each box with a glue dot.

The template for the numbers can be found HERE!

***AT THE TIME OF FILMING, THE CANDY CANE LANE DSP IS ON LOW INVENTORY*** Make sure you order some of this fantastic paper before it goes on back order! (10-13-2016)

Christmas Gift Tag Box Series: Video 5 of 5 – Surprise

And finally here is the last card in my Christmas Gift Tag Box series!

This is such a fun and simple tag! I used some Crumb Cake cardstock for the tag base, Old Olive for the Scalloped Oval, Presents & Pinecones DSP for the Oval, and the Mini Jinglebells as an accent! Stinkin’ cute, right?! The pinecone stamp from Christmas Pines makes an excellent background stamp, and the Surprise stamp is from Tin of Tags.

Here is video 4 of 5 and the third of the four tags in this series!

On this tag, I used the Christmas Pines and Tin of Tags stamp set, with some Old Olive Cardstock. I made my own tassel with the Cherry Cobbler Baker’s twine from the Baker’s Twine Trio Pack, and I tied on one of the adorable Mini Pinecones!
