  • My project today is one of my favorite to date!! I hope you enjoy it.


    I knew whatever I did I wanted it to be a COMPLETE gift set. I’m ALL about matchy matchy stuff. That is what got me into stamping in the first place! I wanted cards/tags/boxes that matched my gifts….5 years later here I am, making it ALL on my own. I totally love it. It is just a gratifing feeling to know I made ever aspect of my gift for someone-from the box, to the card, and the tag!

    I have to say I’m in love with it.


    When I designed the Well Preserved set several months ago, I knew I really wanted to make some dimensional raspberries at some point. I could envision this entire project in my head, but admittedly it all came together better than planned!!

    I was really inspired  by some Hairibou Raspberry candies, and knew I wanted a fancy way to package it, so I turned to the Tea Tabbed Box. With or without the tea cut out, this is a super cute box that goes together in a pinch, and will have you wanting to use it over and over again. I decided that I would package the candies in a flat canning jar. I just cut and stamped a simple matching label for the top, using the raspberry, sentiment and circle label from the set.


     Since releasing Well Preserved, I am finding all sorts of great uses for these everyday, inexpesnsive jars for my holders. I also love the airtight feature, which ensures whatever treat I put in there will stay much more fresh than any baggie!!! 


     I obviously could have use the half pint jar for this and packaged it in the Jam Packed template, but I wanted the style of the Tea Tabbed Box for this one instread. Plus I love sharing all the various possibilities for every template! This jar does fit perfectly too. 


    So I made my base using some OSW white cardstock.I stamped my Fanciful Flourishes on my template first (before fully assembling). I then added my red raspberries, and little leaves.


    To make my raspberries more dimesional, so I used some red liquid pearls to dot on each berry! I wasn’t trying to be perfect, and it actually went really quick. I think you will agree that it was well worth the extra step of using the liquid pearls. It really makes this project POP.


    For my lid I printed my paper : School Plaid Collection 1 , then cut the top lid.


    I wasn’t sure HOW I was going to adorn my lid but I knew it had to be equally stunning as the stamping on the bottom of the box.

    I had purchased these red raspberry garland stuff in the plant section at Michaels over the WINTER!! At the time I had NO idea what I would do with them but they wer ON SALE, so I couldn’t pass them up! When I began making this project lightbulb went off! My only regret is I didn’t buy MORE!!!


    Once the Tea Tabbed Box was done I was nervous that my card would pale in comaparison. So I just let the card guide me 😀

    I took the circular element from my jar, as my inspiration for the circular panel of red raspberries.


     I repeated the same steps on them as on my Tea Tabbed Box. Once that was done I added this purty wire butterfly I had in my stash of treatlets. I also used a scaled down version of the same School Plaid Collection 1 paper (I so love digital paper and that is just ONE of the many reasons!) I used on my box lid.


    Once that was layered I knew I wanted some RED so I used the large label from the Well Preserved set, along with the Well Preserved Cut File (I cut 2 red labels), and stamped them in a white craft ink. I then layered then under my main panel-one rounded side going left, and one going right! I LOVE the look it gave me.

    So that is that!

    It started with some inspiration from a CANDY, then flourished into this entire coordinating gift set.This entire project took almost an hour. Not bad considering I was totally unsure what I was actually going to do!

    Now you have some inspiration, you can easily whip up your own! It took longer for the liquid pearls to dry than the actual gift set creation 😀
