Merry Labels Treat Tubes

Hi everyone!

 

As the year draws to a close, I thought it would be a great time to highlight some of my favourite items soon to retire from the Holiday catalogue whilst I help you get your Christmas Cheer on!

Today I wanted to show you a super quick and easy little gift you can make using the Merry Labels Bundle and the Treat Tubes!

I’m calling them my Merry Labels Treat Tubes! Because well….why not! Lol

Merry Labels Treat Tubes for Christmas Gifts by Mel Pagano at My Paper Oasis

These Treat Tubes had to be one of my all time favourites in the Holiday Catalogue.  You can use them for so many things from Halloween to thank you’s to Christmas.

These are super easy to make because they fit  M&M ‘s perfectly inside the tube. And how easy is it to create a Christmas feel once you add some festive colours!

I teamed with a little label from the Merry Little Labels Bundle and simply tied them on using the Quilted Christmas 1/4″ Ribbon.

Nothing hard about that – I promise.  How great would these be for your kids friends for a Christmas Treat at school break up, or as place settings on your Christmas table or as a table centrepiece. You could even add a loop at with the Metallic Threads and hang them from your Christmas Tree!  That would look sooooooo good!

I hope you enjoyed this quick and easy project!

Remember, all of these items are retiring and are part of the Year End Sales event, so they won’t be around for long!

CTC 155 – Gift Packaging Both Catalogues

Hi everyone and welcome to this weeks CASEing the Catty Blog Hop!

This week its CTC 155 and we are CASEing Gift Packaging from either catalogue!

You may have popped over from Judy’s blog or be starting here – but take the hop full circle for lots of inspiration when creating your own gift packaging – it’s not just about cards after all! Lol.

This week my inspiration is just a little bit obscure! I started with the boxes in the top left of the image below from page 36 in the Holiday Catalogue…

The box on the top is made with the Champagne Foil Sheets.  I really liked the idea of this box, but was going to create in using the Window Box Thinlets.  However…. on my hunt for where I had hidden my Champagne Foil Sheets, I came across my Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate and my mind starting wondering what a Window Box made out of this might look like.  Hmmm, a bit of a fancy Christmas Gift Packaging Idea I thought.  So you know I just had to then create it. So I did!

Because of the Acetate Box, it was super tricky to get a good photo – but I gave it my best go so you can get an idea of how sweet this little acetate box really is.

I added a Gold Foil Hexagon to the top of the box for a bit more clarity to the lid, and just like the image I was CASEing – I added a Gold Foil Star on top of that for some extra texture and effect.

Add some ribbon, Year of Cheer Embellishments and a present from the Christmas Around the World Embellishments and I was pretty happy with the simple elegance of the box all dressed up for a pretty special gift for someone!

It is definitely a bit trickier to work with the acetate but I think it was worth it. I used Fast Fuse to join all my tabs as I didn’t want glue making a mess of the acetate. I encourage you to give it try.  I hope you like it as much as I do!

And – the Window Box Thinlets are discounted this week during the Online Extravaganza!!!!

Now it’s time to hop on over to the lovely Julia Quinn to see what she has designed for you all this week!

CTC 152 – Painted Autumn – Christmas Treat Tube Holders

A big Hello to you all!

I’ve been super busy with Picture to Page and Market Nights the past couple of weeks, so it’s lovely to be back!

Welcome to CTC 152 – Painted Autumn / Spooky Nights on pages 48 – 55 of the Holiday Catalogue.

I don’t really do Halloween, but this fun section has one of my absolutely favourite items!  The treat tubes!

I had a team meeting recently and I thought it would be lovely to treat them to a hot chocolate. Not just any hot chocolate, one they could make themselves! Lol

So we made these cute as Christmas Treat Tube Holders all dressed up for Christmas.

CTC 152 Treat Tube Holders for Christmas by My Paper Oasis

One tube holds the Hot Chocolate, the other is filled with mini marshmallows.  I found the original idea on split coast stampers HERE from Lisa Somerville.  I noticed her double holder was missing one measurement – so here they are:

Take a piece of cardstock 11″ x 5 1/2″ for the Box Base and score on the long side at 1/2″; 1 3/4″; 4 1/4″; 5 1/2″ and 8″.  Score each short side at 1 1/4″.

My measurements for the cardstock layers and DSP are:

Top Panel Cherry Cobbler – 2 7/8” x 2 3/4”

Top Panel DSP – 2 3/4” x 2 5/8”

Bottom Panel Cherry Cobbler – 2 7/8” x 2 3/8”

Bottom Panel Whisper White – 2 3/4” x 2 1/4”

The best bit – the Be Merry Designer Series Paper is currently included in the Buy 3 Get 1 Free DSP sale! You could make sooooooo many of these with that great special!  But it’s only until October 31st!

Just imaging all the little goodies you could fill these Tubes for Christmas or any other occasion.  They could even be used as a little gift and place setting on your Christmas table – just add a name to the bottom panel for a more personal touch.

I just recommend adding the ribbon before filling the tubes! It can be a bit tricky to tie them whilst trying not to spill the contents! Lol.

I hope you have enjoyed this weeks project.  It’s now time to hop on over to the lovely Rachel to see what she has created for you all!

CTC 149 – Year of Cheer Mini Pizza Box Gift Cards

It’s Sunday night – so that means it’s time for another CASEing the Catty Challenge, where every week the design team uses images from the current catalogues to Copy and Share with you to help spur your creativity! You may have popped over from Judy or be starting right here, but make sure to take the full tour and see everyones creations!

Challenge 149 is all about the Year of Cheer Section of the Holiday catalogue on Pages 36-47.

The Year of Cheer section has so many sparkly projects to choose from as well as those cute as Mini Pizza Boxes.

So I took inspiration from the Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper and the Mini Pizza Boxes to create Year of Cheer Mini Pizza Box Gift Cards.

I love the elegance of the Year of Cheer DSP and the gorgeous co-ordinating embellishments.  They make it very simple to create stunning cards for special occasions.

CTC 149 Year of Cheer Mini Pizza Box Gift Card by My Paper Oasis

I teamed mine with Fresh Fig cardstock and some Gold and Silver heat embossing to compliment the foil on the papers.  The gift cards are 3″ x 3″ and I have cut the DSP to 2 3/4″ to allow enough of an ‘edge’ to peek through of the base card.  I folded the Gold Foil Snowflake concertina style and adhered the centre to the gift card, so it really ‘pops up’.  The best part is – you can either gift the box and the cards, or use the cards and then pop a gift in the Mini Pizza Box for someone.

We will be making this gorgeous set at a card class at the end of November.  These papers aren’t part of our current Designer Series Paper Sale where you can Buy 3 get 1 FREE – but you could certainly use the ones that are to create your own version!

I hope you like my project.  Now its time to hop on over to Monique and see what she has created for you all.

Don’t forget to create your own and pop on over to the Facebook Challenge page and upload your creation!

CTC 145 – Merry Little Christmas with Tags and Trimmings

Hi everyone.

Welcome to this weeks CASEing the Catty Blog Hop. You may have hopped across from Jackie or be starting right here, but I encourage you to take the full tour of this weeks hop all about the Merry Little Christmas Section on pages 10 – 19 of the New Holiday Catalogue!

So I have to ask….have you got a copy of the new catalogue yet? Have you downloaded a copy for yourself?  What do you think?  Is there just too much loveliness to choose from!  Well hopefully we can help you as you tour around and see what everyone has showcased tonight!

There are a lot of beautiful ideas in these pages of the catalogue.  But if you have been following me for a while, you will have an idea that I am a sucker for little boxes.  I have NEVER sold off any of my little box dies once they have retired, I just can’t bear to part with them!

Because of that, this weeks selection was an easy choice for me.  I created A Merry Little Christmas with the Tags and Trimmings Bundle!

I used the little pillow box to the right (you can make both the pillow box and the stocking with these dies) and turned it into a little gift stocking, because the stockings are what I truly fell in love with when I saw this set!

CTC 145 Tags and Trimmings Gift Stockings by My Paper Oasis.

The gift tag die is what you use to create the back of the stocking, so the little stocking is actually 3D and stuffable too, making it ideal for a gift card, or cash or a few little treats! Who wouldn’t love to get this for Christmas. You could personalise with a name and hang on the tree ready to hand out.

I also thought they would be great as a table place setting, with the cutlery tucked neatly inside! That way you can colour coordinate them to suit your decor for the day!  You pop on the guests names to indicate seating arrangements!

CTC 145 Tags and Trimmings Gift Stockings by My Paper Oasis.

And finally I wanted to point out, that just because their primary purpose is for 3D items, doesn’t necessarily mean that is the only way to use them!  Don’t add the backing to the stocking, trim off the top and you can quickly and easily create a Christmas Card!

So there you have it!  A Merry Little Christmas with Tags and Trimmings!!!

I do hope you have enjoyed my projects today.  Now it’s time to continue the hop and head on over to the lovely Monique and see what she has created for you all!

CTC 141 – Birthday Foil Frenzy Pretty Packaging

A big hello to all our regular CASEing the Catty blog hoppers and a warm welcome to those who are new!

CASEing the Catty is a weekly hop, where every Sunday the design team showcases projects from a particular section of the catalogue by Copying And Sharing (CASEing) with you how they have used the design and changed elements, colours, textures or anything else to make it their own.

This week we are focusing on the Birthdays Section of the Catalogue on Pages 68 – 85.

I decided to use the image on Page 76 this week to create some Birthday Foil Frenzy Pretty Packaging using this as the basis for my design –

Have you noticed our gorgeous Foil Frenzy Designer Series Paper in the catalogue?  It is hard to miss with all it’s beautiful sparkle in 4 different colours and 3 beautiful designs!  But just in case – you will find it on page 77 or 189 of the Annual Catalogue.

It is perfect for creating pretty packaging – so thats exactly what I did!

CTC 141 Birthday Foil Frenzy Pretty Packaging By Mel Pagano at My Paper Oasis

I chose to use the Soft Sky Spotted Page for my project as it coordinated well with the Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper, not to mention the gorgeous Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon – Oh My Goodness – It’s so soft and smooth – I LOVE it!  I cut out my favourite bear image and touched up some areas like the balloons, hat and bears noses, with the Fine Tip Glue Pen to add some extra shine.

The Pool Party strip of Cardstock under the tag was finished with the Ticket Tear Border Punch for a bit of added fun!

Creating boxes is pretty easy really!  My top was created by trimming 1/2″ of two sides (with an adjoining corner) of the 12″ x 12″  foil frenzy sheet.  I then scored all four sides at 2″ before folding on score lines, cutting one of the score lines in each corner, folding in and adhering the tabs to the inside panels.  To create a base that fits perfectly, just trim an extra 1/8″ off two sides again from the box base piece, score at 2″, cut tabs as before and adhere to create your box base.  It really does save all that measuring!

Here is a close up of the tag –

I do hope I have encouraged you to try and create some of your own gorgeous birthday or gift boxes!

CTC 128 – Favourite Kit

Hi everyone.  I seemed to have been MIA the past couple of weeks as I prepared for the Picture to Page show in Pakenham.  But I am back this week for another awesome CTC Challenge!  This week we get to CASE our Favourite Kit from any Catalogue!

I do have a couple of favourite kits in the catalogue – especially the Watercolour Wishes Card Kit. But for todays hop – I decided to try something a little different.  I have always liked the Perfectly Wrapped Kit on page 159 in the current Annual Catalogue, but it was one of those kits I never actually got around to purchasing!

I thought it was such a bright fun kit, and just a bit different to our usual kits with all its fun packaging.  I had so much fun creating for this challenge!  I had never thought to CASE a kit before!

So today, being Mother’s Day in Australia, I thought all that cute packaging may just come in handy for some lovely little gifts!

I used the Grateful Bunch stamp set and Blossom Bunch Punch to base my mini kit around.  I am just a bit sad this set is retiring! I loved the lace and the triple flowers that you could layer together were so quick and easily … not to mention that is my most favourite butterfly …. sob…

Anyway – here is what I came up with!

CTC 128 Favourite Kit Projects by Mel Pagano at My Paper Oasis using Stampin' Up! Grateful Bunch and Blooms and Bliss DSP

I created the gift bag by using our Kraft Tag a Bags (also retiring).  I simply stamped the bag, folded the base and adhered the corners underneath to create an open bag.

The Clear Tiny Treat Box was simply decorated with some hand stamped Whisper White card, scored and folded for inside the box, with a belly band wrapped around and a cluster of flowers popped on the top.

And instead of creating the cello bags – I CASEd the design and turned it into a card to suit the occasion!

The sentiments from this suite really do go well with the Mother’s Day theme.  I hope that where ever you are today, and whom ever you consider your ‘babies’, that you are having an amazing day! Every woman is fabulous and deserves to be treated special xx

Don’t forget – you can play along too by simply adding your photo to the CTC 128 album on our Facebook page HERE.

Now its time to pop around to see what the rest of the crew have created for you.

Next on the hop is the amazing Julia Quinn!

CTC 125 – Favourite Bigshot Project!

Hi crafty friends and welcome!

It’s Sunday night, so that means it’s time for another CASEing the Catty blog hop.  I’m pretty excited about this weeks challenge!  We get to showcase our favourite Big Shot project from the occasions catalogue!

How hard was it to choose! I mean, the Occasions Catalogue had so many great Big Shot projects.  The Lift Me Up Bundle, Custom Tee’s, Nailed It, So Succulent Bundle and not to mention the So Detailed Thinlets, Cool Treats and Dragonfly Dreams!

But for me – well, let’s just say that I am an absolute sucker for a box – so my choice for this weeks challenge just had to be the Window Box Die.

I had seen a picture from Pauline Barnfather at icreatecraft, who had designed a timber like box. I immediately fell in love with it and have been wanting to create my own version since. So this was my chance.  I really wanted to create an antique style box, that reminded me a little of an old jewellery box.  Some Soft Suede cardstock stamped with the Hardwood stamp helped me easily achieve that!

I am so happy with the way it turned out.  Once I created the box I knew it needed some beautiful flowers to top it off.  I haven’t created these flowers for a few years now, so it was fun to really play and make them again.  I used the Flower Shop stamp and co-ordinating punch to create them.  Here’s a better look at the top for you.

Luckily I had kept hold of my retired Antique Brads from a couple of years ago.  I think it really enhances the antique feel of the box perfectly and acts like a little handle to lift the lid open!

You can take a look at how I created these flowers, with my You Tube Link,  at this post – 3D Flower Making.

I hope you have enjoyed tonight’s project.  Now it’s time to hop on over to the lovely Judy May and see what beautiful project she has created for you!
