Boxes and Bags Demo

On Friday, June 27th we held a Boxes and Bags Demo at the store! I appreciated seeing so many familiar and new faces in the crowd! Thanks for coming out!

Below are pictures of the boxes that were created, along with links to the online instructions and a few details about each one. If you have any questions about the boxes, please don't hesitate to email me at

Star Box - Online instructions can be found here. This sample was created using Liberty paper from Scenic Route. The tag was made with stamps from Stampendous. (All available at the store!) One customer said she was going to make these boxes, then fill them with pretzel rods dipped in white chocolate and decorated with red, white and blue sprinkles from The Oak Cupboard! What a great gift to take to a picnic on Friday to thank your hostess! I plan to make some up for my Dad, who were meeting up with on Friday for a picnic!

This sweet Criss-Cross box is filled with Puppy Chow! (The human kind... Crispix dipped in chocolate and peanut butter and coated with powdered sugar!) Online instructions can be found here. The paper used here is a new line we recently acquired from Scribble Scrabble. The stamps used on this project are from My Favorite Things, and the polka dot ribbon is from Bo Bunny.

Box-in-a-Bag - Super easy to make, there are so many possibilities for these little bags, and they'll hold a nice bit of goodies! Online instructions can be found here. The first bag uses paper from My Mind's Eye, and stamps from Gina K Designs. The second bag uses the Liberty paper again from Scenic Route and the America the Beautiful stamp set from Cornish Heritage Farms.

Remember, tomorrow is July 1st so the new Great Impressions Stamp of the Month will be on display! It'll be very appealing to all you pet lovers!

Also, don't forget the Nestabilities are back in stock, as well as Cuttlebug embossing folders! On the way are also new stamps from Memory Box, and My Favorite Things!

Happy stamping!
