Nifty Gift Giving: You're A Gem Curvy Keepsake Box & A TUTORIAL

Hi Crafty Friends!  I'm back to share another fun gift giving idea!  For my second "Nifty Gifty" project, it was made using the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits Dies.  

These dies were introduced in the 2014 Holiday Catalog, and everyone has fallen head over heals in love with all of its possibilities!  Me included!

For this adorable little box, I used some of my favorite 2013-2015 In Colors--Coastal Cabana, Pistachio Pudding and Crisp Cantaloupe.  I'm going to be so sad to see all five colors go!  

If you haven't stocked up already on your favorite 2013-2015 In Color everything (ink pads, ink refills, cardstock, Stampin' Write Markers, sequins, etc.), then now is the time to do so because they will be retiring in May, and most will sell out before that time even gets here.  You've been warned!

Anyway, I borrowed my tag design from the 2015 Occasions Catalog (page 29).  That's what it's's not just a catalog, it's an idea book too.

It's a little hard to see in the picture, but I added a strip of white with gold hearts washi tape from the Stacked with Love Designer Washi Tape.  Instead of making stripes on my tag, I simply colored in the gem with a Crisp Cantaloupe Stampin' Write Marker.  Because the tag is heat embossed, coloring it was very easy.

THE STEPS (to punch both ends of your tag with the Note Tag Punch) ::
  1. Grab a piece of Whisper White Cardstock and punch it once.
  2. Then grab a small Post-it Note and stick to the end you already punched.  
  3. Holding the punch upside down AND facing you, slip the tag into the decorative end and punch again.  Wallah!

I really like how this little box turned out, and I hope that you do too.  These little boxes are great for putting a few treats in and sharing all year round for nearly every holiday, wedding favors, baby showers, and many other events that come up throughout the year.  

Here's a video from Stampin' Up! showing you how to create with your Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits Dies.

2015 Occasions Catalog

There's been a little confusion as to what the 2015 Occasions Catalog is, so I'd like to clarify.  When Stampin' Up! designed the Occasions Catalog, they added a Sale-a-Bration "cover wrap" over the front cover.  (I believe that's what it's called according to Google.)  So, what you might think is the Sale-a-Bration brochure, is actually the 2015 Occasions Catalog!  

To avoid any further confusion, just flip that Sale-a-Bration cover wrap to the back, and you will find the lovely handmade Build a Bouquet Kit on the front cover.

We still have 2 more months with the 2015 Occasions Catalog and the 2014-2015 Annual Catalog, so let's keep on crafting! 

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  Until next time, happy crafting!
