My project this month features a paper mug. I’ve been noticing these paper mugs all over Pinterest as I was searching for some packaging inspiration! I immediately shared this project with a friend who has been working endlessly on making Hot Chocolate Bombs!!! So fun and such a cute way to package a yummy treat! I used products from the Heartwarming Hugs Suite. I have also included a video showing you how to make the mug!
To make the paper mug;
you will need a piece of card stock or designer paper that measures 4 1/2” x 9” I used the Heartwarming Hug DSP.
Now if you are using a piece of designer paper you want to have the side that is the inside of your mug face up on your Simply Scored Scoring Board. Start with the 9” side along the top and score every inch at 1”, 2”, 3”, 4”, 5”, 6”, 7”, & 8”
Then turn the paper to the 4 1/4” side and score at 1 1/2” NOTE: before you score, make sure if your paper has a directional pattern that the pattern is facing the right way on the score board, the 1 1/2” line is the bottom of the mug! So when it's assembled that larger section should be facing correctly. Hope this makes sense!!
Continue to have paper for the inside of the mug face up
Cut the 1” score lines up to the 1 1/2” line.
Then remove the bottom right corner section from the 8” score line up to the 1 1/2” line and then cut the top section at an angle....see the 3rd picture below!
Add adhesive to the bottom tabs, flip over to the outside of the mug and then adhesive along that tab!
Now lightly fold on the score lines as you roll the paper to adhere the sides!
Attach the bottom piece overlapping each other to form the bottom! I punched out 2 - 2” circles one for the bottom and one for the inside, you don’t have to do this but it makes it look finished to me and adds a-little more support to the mug!
For the handle I just layered 2 different sizes circle dies
I cut out 2 glued them together and cut the almost in half! Bend the ends alittle and glue them to the mug! You could also use ovals, as well! Fill with some candy or whatever treats you like! I added some lotion and lip balm in a pretty bag!
I used the Warm Hugs Stamp and coordinating Warm Wraps dies to make the greeting on the front and I also cut the Real Red Glimmer paper using a 2” punch! You can refer to the pictures below for more details! What do you think?? So fun!!! And so EASY. In order to accomodate the size of the Hot Chocolate Bombs, I had to adjust my measurements, but I will show that as another post when I make the final version! I can’t wait to make a bunch for my friend to package her goodies in!
And now my card!!! Super easy layers! I used the same paper pack Heartwarming Hugs DSP and chose a couple different patterns.
Start with a Mossy Meadow card base
4x5 1/4 piece of Cherry Cobbler
DSP that measures 3 7/8”x 5 1/8”
DSP that measures 1 1/2”x 4 3/4”
3”x3 1/2” piece of Pear Pizzazz
2 3/4”x3 1/4” of Whisper White
Adhere the DSP onto the Cherry Cobbler add then add the DSP strip, wrap some Mossy Meadow Diaganol Striped Ribbon around the left side and tie in a bow, before adhering to the card base.
I stamped using on a scrap piece of white using the Everything Essential stamp set. To get the different colors I used my Stamp n Write markers. I colored the stamp, the huffed on it to moisten and then stamp! So cool right? Then punched it out with the Tag Punch.
I die cutted a few snowflakes from a retired set called Snowfall, I’m sorry I don’t have any news ones! And layered behind the tag before adhering to the card.
You can see below I have to cards, one with Real Red Braided Linen Thread and one with ribbon! Which one do you like better??? I can’t decide!!!
Thank you so much for joining me today!! I had so much fun creating my projects I hope you enjoyed them!!! Be sure to continue to Tiziana Milano’s blog for her awesome projects!!!
Thank you again
Happy Holidays & Happy Stampin

We’re all papercrafters, here. And that means visions of sugarplums (and Christmas crafting) start dancing in our heads as soon as October hits. I can help you get those visions translated into reality by planning now to create handmade packaging for your family and friend!
Keep it simple or make it fancy. All that matters is that you add a bit of yourself to your giving this year by making it handmade and heartfelt.
The standout on this sweet Christmas packaging is our adorable, rustic tag. And trust us—once you make the first one, creating multiples is easy. Tip: Besides using the ripped paper technique, stamp off the solid trees to add depth. Once you finish stamping, tie the tag to the Mini Shipping Box with a bit of Linen Thread. So cute!
We fancied up our second tag by adding a variety of stamped embellishments. Just run the stamped images through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the Warm Wraps Dies, then adhere them with Stampin’ Dimensionals. We also added die-cut Real Red Cardstock trim along with open-weave ribbon and gold metallic trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack for extra charm.
We stepped up our final project by embossing the tag with the Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folder. We then adhered pretty wreath sprigs and finished with a bit of ink splattering using the Aqua Painter. This tag is so festive you could almost hang it on the Christmas tree!
Regardless of the type of crafter you are, we have something for you!!!
Contact me to get your gift packaging into a reality
Nature has many ways of showing off her genius, and one of the most notable examples is found in the delicate patterns of snowflakes. Stampin UP’s concept artist decided to highlight the whimsical beauty of these fabulous ice crystals using the So Many Snowflakes Dies (item 153560), a variety of embossing folders, and subtle, pastel color combinations to create truly breathtaking cards—which can be easily adapted to suit any winter occasion.
To make the watercolor snowflake accents featured on the Happy Hanukkah and Snowflake Wishes cards, we simply applied Blushing Bride and Misty Moonlight ink to the die-cut snowflakes using Sponge Daubers (item 133773)—replicating the soft hues of a wintry, twilight sky. Our artist enhanced the texture and beauty of these cards using the Winter Snow (item 153577) and Evergreen Forest 3D (item 153576) Embossing Folders, respectively.
To create our Thank You Snow Much gift bag, we embossed Brushed Metallic Cardstock (item 153524) using the Woodland Embossing Folder (item 152881) and added peek-through snowflake die-cut pieces for extra charm. Who wouldn’t love to receive this darling gift bag, tied with a 1-1/2" (3.8 cm) Metallic Mesh Ribbon (item 153550)? This project would also make the perfect host or booking gift!
How many ways can you showcase the beauty of snowflakes with your cards and 3D projects? Remember to share them in the comments or on Facebook Page Stampin and Scrappin with Steph, so we can all enjoy them!
HAVE A HOOT STEP-BY-STEP
Kept things simple on the first version of this cute card. A few simple layers, a splash of color, ribbon, and a sentiment popped up using Stampin’ Dimensionals. This cheerful, little project takes just minutes to make and would be the perfect solution for a casual crafter.
Step up the charming second card by running the tag through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Peek-A-Hoot Dies for a stitched-edge look. Fold the gold-trimmed satin ribbon in half, insert the ends through the hole in the tag, then pull them snugly through the loop at the end of the ribbon. Add a little extra pop to this card with a layer of Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper, some Gold Glitter Enamel Dots, and heat embossing.
Our fanciest card is a real hoot. Emboss the card front using the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and the Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder, adhered die-cut branches, and added a strip of Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper. Perfect! Whoo wouldn’t love to have a Christmas cardmaking party featuring these cute, outdoorsy cards? I certainly wood . . . er . . . would!

Welcome to the April Stampin Friends Blog Hop!! We are featuring Flowers and Mom's in this month's hop.
Be sure to hop along and visit everyone's blogs, if you get lost, be sure to scroll down to the end of each blog to find a list of hoppers. I hope you came from Melissa Thomas, didn't you just love her projects?? So great! After you view my blog, be sure to leave a comment!!! And then continue to Jo Blackman If you are not sure whose blogs you have visited, you can find a list of hoppers at the bottom of each blog!
Mother's Day is May 10, 2020 here in the USA. So I decided to not only feature flowers, but to also make my projects for Mother's Day! At this point, not sure if my projects will be hand delivered or mailed. We will just have to wait and see!
I've been loving the new Stampin Up Ornate Garden Suite. I chose this suite this month because it has so many flowers in this suite. And the big flower arrangement stamp was perfect!
I made this easy adorable lidded box and matching card for you! SO let's dive right in!
I cut the frame using the die from the Ornate Layers Dies. It is the second largest. Then I cut a piece of Whisper White to layer on top and embossed it using the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder. I stamped the Flower image from the Ornate Style Stamp set in Black and colored with coordinating Stampin' Blends Markers; Calypso Coral, So Saffron, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive. Finished with some pearls and the Calypso Coral ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack. Now I did all of this twice since I used the same design on the card.
The box is a good size as you can see from the picture above, I included a travel tissue pack the and the lid goes on perfectly fine! You can tealights to this box too, so you can see just how much you can fit.
I made my card to match the box, so as I mentioned above, I stamped and cut the images twice so when I got the card, it was basically assembly. The card base is Calypso Coral. I added a layer of DSP first that measures 4 1/8'x 5 3/8". The DSP is from the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper.
I hope you enjoyed my projects today and I have inspired you to make one on your own! Please feel free to contact me with any questions!!!
Be sure to check out the next blog during this month's blog hop, Jo Blackman! I'd love to hear what you think, so feel free to leave a comment!!!
A project that I love to make for the holidays is a lotion & chapstick holder! Passed years I have made a gift bag holder with a cut out in the front for a window so you can see the content. Even tho I really like the gift bag, I decided to change it up a little this year. The reason being, I am involved in a Holiday Pop-Up shopping event again this year and this will be the 3rd time I will be displaying my projects for sale. So I figured for those repeat attendees that I am so gracious for!!!! I decided I needed a fresh look!
After a few failed attempts on my own, I came across a post on Pinterest and I really liked her project. I adjust it to be just a tad wider so that the lotion and chapsticks would fit without pushing against the paper edges.
Unfortunately, I did not pin the post and I am having trouble locating it at the moment. SO I will keep looking and definitely update when I come across it! I want to make sure I give credit to the creator as well!!
The DSP and stamp image I used is from Stampin' Up's new Let it Snow suite. The stamp set is called Snowman Season and there is also a Snowman Builder punch that coordinates with one of the stamps.
I made 2 of each paper design for a total of 8 holders. I used the cut out from the window as a backing to the greeting and had the reverse side of the paper displayed. For the window opening you could use a window sheet. But I cut a piece of transparency. You can find these at an office supply store. I feel they work just as well and you get more for your money!
I plan to put these into a cellophane bag and finish it off with a little tag that includes the contents for easy shopping.
I hope you like it!
Thanks for stopping by!
Who has time to create things from scratch this time of year? Me that's for sure!!! Stampin Up knows how busy this time of year is for us!

But why stress out....I can help you get ready for the Holiday Season with a hand-crafted advent décor! Fill the small boxes with treats for the kids/grandkids, give as a fun gift, and let the countdowns begin!
