Wonderous Wreath Swag

Welcome to the October Pals Blog Hop where we are celebrating an early Halloween and Harvest season. This month we are sharing Halloween and fall projects using our wonderful Stampin’ Up! supplies.

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Maggie Mata at Maggie Made Cards on the Pals Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

I love the Wonderous Wreath stamp set and Framelits.  It’s been fun to see wreaths made for all the different holidays.  The wreath is even more versatile when you can cut it up into a swag.

The fence was fun to make.  I used the Hardwood stamp and Crumb Cake cardstock.  I stamped it with Soft Suede ink.  The Chevron Border punch was used on the top of the fence posts. I also sponged the edges of each fence 2 (10)

Christmas Box directions

photo 1 (1)

Here’s the Christmas Box I posted yesterday.  I got the box directions several years ago from Becky Roberts at Inking Idaho.  The box is made with one 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of card stock.  Cut two pieces- piece A is 10 1/2 x 5 1/4 and piece B is 10 x 3 1/8.

Score piece A in the landscape view at 1/2, 1, 9 1/2 and 10. Score piece A in the portrait view at 1/2, 1, 4 1/4, 4 3/4. See picture to cut the corners and make flaps. Attach 10 small pieces of sticky strip as shown in the picture. Use a bone folder to crease all the score 1 (3)

Score piece B in the landscape view at 3 1/4, 3 3/4, 4 1/4, 5 3/4, 6 1/4, 6 3/4. Crease on score lines to create “mountains” separating the candy bars from the cards and 2 (4)photo 3 (3)

The lid is made with one Transparancy sheet cut at 8 1/2 x 8 3/8. Score at 1/2, 3 13/16, 4 6/16, 7 11/16.  Secure the lid with sticky strip.
