Oh My Goodness! Wasn't Barbara Welch's projects amazing! Barbara is so talented! It's very exciting to follow after her in our Blog Hop!
This month, I am sharing a really fun, and super easy, gift giving project! For this month's hop, we have a Thanksgiving Theme. My project is more of a Fall/Winter Survival kit. As we head into the colder months, it's fun to give a little pick-me-up or someone who might be feeling a little down or under the weather. And well, there is just so many items you could add to this kit.
So before I get started, we have 13 crafters this month (including myself) so be sure to check out everyone's blog. Leave a comment about what you LOVED about my projects and include #SFbloghop2017 on your comment! And we will choose 1 lucky winner at the end!! Scroll down to see the blog hop prize!!! Sue Lovejoy was the the winner of last months hop! Congratulations!
If you get lost along the way or not sure whose blogs you may have missed, a full list of participants are at the end of my post.
Stampin' Up's Painted Harvest Suite has been one of my favorite line of products in the Holiday Catalog!!! The images on the Painted Autumn DSP is just amazing! The designs just pop off the paper! My projects feature products from this suite! I used Very Vanilla and Early Espresso cardstock along with Early Espresso, Cajun Craze and Garden Green Ink pads.
I knew I wanted to put together a little pick me up kit. I included a hand sanitizer, a couple packs of herbal tea, candy and a lip balm. I thought great I will use the new pizza boxes only to realize it was too small!! So I made my own box.
I will admit, I typically can not come up with the measurements to make a box to save my life! But this time I was focused and figured it out! I am sure there are many boxes like mine...but I designed this size specifically for my contents.
So, what do you need? A piece of cardstock that measures 7x12. I used kraft paper because of the color and weight!
With the 12" side horizontal, score at 1 1/4, 5 1/2, 6 3/4 and 11. Turn the paper so the 7" side is on top and score at 1 1/4 & 5 3/4.
As you can see on the picture to the left, you will need to fold and burnish your score lines. You will notice there is one end that is a 1" fold and the other end isa 1 1/4". The 1" end will be your lid.
It will tuck in when the box is closed so it won't matter that it is 1/4 shorter. Remove the 2 outer edges from the 1" edge. Cut up on your score lines and add adhesive to the outside of your flaps. And assemble the bottom of your box. Tuck the lid closed. See pictures below.
I sponged the edges of the box in Cajun Craze just to add color. To keep the box closed, although it will stay closed without it, I made a simple belly band to go around.
I cut a piece of DSP 2x12 and added a piece of cardstock that was 3x4 under it.
I stamped the flower in Cajun Craze, I stamped of before stampin each layer of the image. I fussy-cut the flower out. Then I stamped 3 leaves in Garden Green and added the veins in Early Espresso, punched them out with the Leaf Punch.
Cut a 2" strip of Very Vanilla for the tag. Trim it to the length you want. I repeated the flower at the end of the tag and rounded the corners.
I used a piece of 5/8 Burlap Ribbon and Copper Trim to sit behind the tag before adhering to the belly band.
The thankful sentiment is stamped on a piece of Very Vanilla that measure 1x2 1/2, layered on a piece of Early Espresso that measures 1 1/2x3. Adhere to the card with dimensionals.
And there you have it. My projects for the Thanksgiving Blog Hop by Stampin Friends.
I hope you Loved it.

have yourself a merry little christmas
Don't you just love the holidays? I do too! I especially love making my Christmas cards. It's one of the reasons I became a Stampin' Up Demonstrator. Every year I look forward to the new Holiday Catalog to see all the new seasonal products! And every year I say this is the best catalog by far!!! One of my very favorite products is the Merry Little Christmas Suite. This suite takes up four pages in the Holiday Catalog. There is so much for you to use in this mega suite. Festive stamps, Designer Series Paper, accessories and tools. You can view this suite on page 10-13 in the catalog. If you do not have one, be sure to contact me and I'll be happy to send you one!!
The coordination of this suite makes it so easy to whip some cards and cool box to store them in! At this weeks card club, my guests made 6 cards and a really easy decorative box. So festive that it can be even given as a gift!
Be sure to check out my events for the next card club! You won't want to miss out!
Thanks for stopping by
Happy Stampin Steph
