Welcome to the November RemARKable Blog tour! Although Thanksgiving is just a few days away, we’re looking ahead to Christmas. After all, with pumpkin pie to bake (and eat) who has time for hours of Thanksgiving crafting?
Yesterday was the Maui Stampers & Friends 5th Annual Craft Fair, and these Cocoa and Sweets Easel Gifts flew out the door:
I pulled out all sorts of resources for this one, but the base is Real Red and the Designer Series Paper is Presents and Pinecones from the Holiday catalog. There are die cuts from the Stitched Shapes, Bear Hugs, and Perfect Pines framelits, and there’s a bit of the retired Real Red Pompom trim stapled to the side (that trim was the BEST!)
The tree is embossed with the glorious Emerald Envy Glitter Embossing Powder, and I used a sponge dauber to add the same color the the bear’s Dazzling Diamonds Bow Tie.
These easel boxes fit perfectly in the 6″ x 17″ gusset cellophane bags – in fact, I think all my Christmas gifting is going to be in these bags. Forget the “No Peeking” tags – peek all you want!!
Our RemARKable leader, Jan, posted a video demonstrating just how easy it is to make these easel boxes. The size is easily adapted to customize to your needs, and you can use up all of those odds and ends of paper, embellishments and die cuts that are on your craft desk because you can’t bear to throw them away (Go on, confess, you know you hoard them! I certainly do!)
We’re doing our best to both inspire you and offer quick solutions to your gifting needs this month, so carry on through the tour for ideas you can use today. Next up is Audra Monk!
