Today’s Craft Project Central project is made by Christine Miller.

You may throw away or recycle cereal, macaroni, or cracker boxes, but you can turn them into beautiful gift boxes for that next special occasion. See how to use Designer Series Paper and other stamping supplies to turn these plain boxes into gift wrap that is almost as impressive as the gift you are giving. You will learn how to wrap two different size boxes in your favorite patterned paper.

If you would like to learn how to make this project, you’ll want to subscribe for the month of August. With your subscription, you’ll get illustrated, step-by-step instructions for five wonderful projects for only $10! You can find out how to gain access to a bonus sixth project over at Craft Project Central.

Pals August Blog Hop

Welcome to the August 2017 Pals Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month we’re going to “Cut It Out”. Participants will feature projects with “cuts” from punches, dies, Framelits, Edgelits, or Thinlits.

Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

Stampin Up sympathy card made with the Fluttering embossing folder designed by demo Beth McCullough. Please see more card and gift ideas at www.StampingMom.com #StampingMom #cute&simple4u

I made this card to use as a Sympathy card for my kid’s favorite swim coach, who recently lost her Mom.  I used 3-3/4″ x 1″ strips of each of the new In Colors and adhered them to a piece of 5″ x 3-3/4″ white card stock.  I ran that through the Big Shot with the Fluttering embossing folder.  With Stampin’ Dimensionals, the butterfly layer is attached to a Flirty Flamingo 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ card.  The Isaiah verse is from the Rose Wonder stamp set.  Everything looks better when it’s cut out with the Stitched Shape Framelits.  If you own a Big Shot you will want to get them!  The butterfly is from the Bold Butterfly Framelits.

Here’s a birthday version of the card.  The little butterflies are cut from the Build A Bike Framelits.

Stampin Up Anniversary card made with the Ruffled embossing folder designed by demo Beth McCullough. Please see more card and gift ideas at www.StampingMom.com #StampingMom #cute&simple4u

Here’s a similar card flipped the other way.  The Happy Anniversary is from a retired set, All-Year Cheer III from back in 2002. (I’m dating myself.)  The colors are Powder Pink, Sweet Sugarplum, Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Blackberry Bliss.( All are current except Blackerry Bliss.)

The Big Shot is a wonderful tool that allows you to make awesome “cuts” on your cards.

This sweet box makes such a nice thank you gift when it contains four hand stamped cards and four envelopes.

I love the sentiment on this card.

Who wouldn’t love finding this sweet birthday card in their mailbox?!

Everybody needs thank you notes.

This one is my favorite!

Superman (my husband, Steve), Ryan, Abby, Keegan and I are all at Family Camp in Okoboji this week!  We wish Sean was here with us too!  We go to a wonderful, Bible-based, Holy Spirit-filled camp.  We’ve gone every year for about twenty years.  It’s so nice to be away from T.V., newspapers and the “noise” of the world and focus on our family and God.
