  • Month after the month the team and I work hard to show you the versatility in our great products, and bring you unique ways to package up everyday items and make them look so special! I cannot tell you how fun this is for me. I pinch myself each month that I get to share what I love with the world, and when I see all of our customers creations ūüėÄ So thank you!

    One of the things I love most is going back and using our older products with NEW! products. I love mixing and matching everything from the past with the present.

    I wanted to share another idea with you using BOTH our new templates, but using our older products. Sometimes I don’t have enough time in one month to showcase and create everything I really want to, and this gives me time to do just that.

    With Winter in full effect I was inspired by a recent snowfall to create my two projects today. One being masculine, and one being girly!

    Here is my masculine take on the Pull Tab Up: Octagon

    Have a Ball

    Sara has a real flair for creating boy themed paper. Her colors are always so inspiring¬†to me. I love using paper as my starting point because there isn’t much left for me to brainstorm once my colors are picked. I’m not great at picking fun and unique color combos on my own as I tend to lean towards the same colors all the time if it is left up to ME to pick! LOL! So I started by picking my pattern from the Flakes & Fuzzies Set 1 of 3 ¬©¬† collection.

    There are SO many pretty snowflakes to choose from in the It’s Snowing ¬©¬†cut file, that it is hard to choose just one! But I did pick one for this creation, and I love it. I was a SIMPLE accent but really made this stand out. The snowflakes from the It’s Snowing ¬©¬†cut file coordinate with the Flakes & Fuzzies paper collections, but also have a coordinating digital stamp set: It’s Snowing ¬©! I have yet to get my most use of that set, but hope to soon.

    Now another detail. AS simple as it is….the sentiment “Have a ball!” that is stamped on the top layer, comes from the On Display 1 ¬© . This would make the perfect gift for anyone, any age, any time of the Winter season.

    This box would be great for packaging up a free pass to go sledding or snowboarding. That is what I plan on packing in here!

    OR you can put winter themed items in here, maybe some gumballs, or other candies in here too.

    I love both of these boxes. I think I could just use them OVER, and OVER again.

    Now for my girly version!

    Sending you warm fuzzies!

    I thought this would be perfect for packing up a cute hat, some mittens or even a pair of warm socks. I always find the cutest items like that in our local dollar store, or in the dollar section of Michaels or Target!

    Last month we released some AMAZING new products, that I wasn’t able to fully use to their potiental! I was so inspired by all the coordinating items that I pulled it all together in this project.

    The project started with the snowflake pattern paper from the Femmie Flakes & Fuzzies © collection. I applied the pattern to all four panels of my box. Nothing fancy! I generally always use some sort of paper collection for my starting poitn so I have some direction on what colors I want to use.

     The sentiment in the lower right hand corner is from the ADORABLE Warm Sentiments © set. I just love it.

    My mittensthat are hanging off the box¬†were made using the Frost Bitten ¬©¬†cut file. I shrunk it down to suit my project needs. I believe I decreased the size to 50%. The snowflake on my mittens came from the Secret Santa ¬© ¬†set. I added a wired cord to the mittens and strunk it through the tab hole in my box. I couldn’t resist adding a snowflake to this box as well using the It’s Snowing ¬©¬†cut file.

    While I haven’t packaged anything in here yet…I am thinking ahead! I give lots of gifts in the Winter, so this should come in handy soon. I *may* even package up a scent-sational bath ball! What is better than a nice HOT bath on a COLD winter day?!
