I had our annual Christmas Party for my #1 Stampers team last night. I'll share lots of photos of the party later this week, but I wanted to share the favors and gifts that each attendee received.
I used the Stampin Up Pizza Boxes to package the party favors and gifts for each team member.
These boxes are small white pizza shaped boxes in the Holiday Catalog. However, I "painted" the boxes red to fit the Christmas theme. I got this idea from a gift I received at the Stampin' Up Convention, from my friend Lynsay Mahon. See Lynsays blog here.
This is the box that Lynsay gave me:
I loved Lynsay's design and especially the fact that she colored the pizza box. Lynsay explained that she filled a Stampin' Up Spritzer with water and added 10-15 drops of re-inker. Then lightly sprayed the boxed before she assembled it, and rubbed in the color with a paper towel. So, I tried it and my boxes came out perfectly! Thanks Lynsay!
I used a Stampin Blends marker in old olive to color the pearl. Did you know that our Stampin' Blends could color non- porous surfaces?
I used the Christmas Around the World designer paper to decorate the boxes, as well as the mini tinsel trim in silver. A 2 1/4" circle punch was used to punch the sparkly red glimmer paper on the front of the box.
Inside, I covered Ghirardelli Chocolates with 3" x 1 1/2" Christmas Around the World designer paper strips.
But, that's not all- I also created a Christmas shaker magnet for each of the girls as well.
Keeping with the red and green color scheme, I used the holly and berries from the Tags and Trimmings stamp set in the Holiday Catalog. I added some sparkle with red glimmer paper as well as the Stampin Up Metallic Sequins.
I used Foam Strips and Acetate Window sheets to create the shaker. I also used the 2 1/4", 1 3/4" and 3/4" punches for all the circles. Then I simply glued a small circular magnet on the back with Multi purpose glue. Its difficult to see, but I also glued a piece of the real red tinsel trim around the circle to cover the foam strip around the outside of the circle.
I loved making these Christmas magnets for my girls. I hope they loved them too!
Here's a peek inside the box: The ink spots are a new item in the soon to be released Stampin' Up Occasions Catalog!
