Ghirardelli Square Holders - Great Stocking Stuffers

Just a couple quick projects I made...these make super cute co-worker gifts, or stocking stuffers. They are based on a pattern I shared years ago, you can find the basic dimensions and instructions at THIS POST.


The one on the left features the Decorative Label Punch, with a layering technique I shared in THIS POST. In both versions, the Ghirardelli Square slides right in, or out, of the holder, so the treat can be consumed and the cute holder can then get refilled and regifted! But, you can "lock" the Ghirardelli square in place more securely with a glue dot behind it if you need a safety measure to keep from eating all the chocolate yourself ;-)

Stampin' Supplies for Merry Christmas Treat Holder: Project Life Hello December 2015 stamp set, Very Vanilla card stock, Mossy Meadow card stock and ink, Cherry Cobbler ink, Gold Metallic Foil Sheets, Word Window Punch, Very Vanilla Subtle Stripes Satin Ribbon, Gold Cord Trim, Gold Sequin Trim, 1/4" Hole Punch (for ribbon).

Stampin' Supplies for Reindeer Treat Holder: Santa's Gifts stamp set, Very Vanilla card stock, Mossy Meadow card stock and ink, Cherry Cobbler card stock and ink, Chocolate Chip ink, Chalk Marker, Basic Black Marker (to darken eye), Smoky Slate Marker (for hooves), Word Window Punch, Washi Tape Punch, Mossy Meadow Striped Cotton Ribbon, Linen Thread, 1/16" hole punch, 1/4" Hole Punch (for ribbon), Basic Rhinestone (for nose...colored with red Sharpie marker). {I used some third-party specialty dies to cut out the deer and scarf...they are unavailable for purchase at the moment}

You can shop for these supplies in my ONLINE STORE. Some of them are discounted in the Year-End SALE, which runs through January 4th, or while supplies last. If you have any trouble finding what you are looking for, drop me an email and I can confirm whether or not it's sold out.

Holiday Treat Bags & Boxes Video Tutorial + GIVEAWAY

First things first, I have ONE extra Mistletoe and Holly Paper Pumpkin to GIVE AWAY! GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED. If you want to be in the running, you'll need to leave a comment below, no later than December 15th at 11:59pm MT. A random winner will be chosen, and must be reachable on December 16th so I can get this in the mail to you ASAP. Just for kicks and content, you'll need to tell me in your comment whether you think you'd make the cards with the kit if you won it, or the bags and boxes! And, my blog doesn't store your email address, so you MUST leave yours in your comment, but PLEASE type it out like this: procrastistamper at gmail dot com (I remove the contest comments after the deadline, so your info won't be hanging out there on the interwebs) **I also moderate my comments, so please enter only once...your comment will show up later if it's not spammy**


Just to be clear, the boxes and bag in the video tutorial below are put together using supplies from the Paper Pumpkin kit I'm giving away, but you can make them with any card stock or standard envelopes! YAYYYYY!!! If you don't need to see any of the "decoration" parts, the directions and assembly for the box start at 01:40, and for the bag, they start at 20:18. There's a bit of blabber in between there about specific details regarding using the Paper Pumpkin kit supplies, but you can just skip over if you are in a hurry and don't find it utterly fascinating ;-) {p.s.: if you are reading this blog post in email, you may have a blank area below for the video...just click on the title of the blog post to read it online and watch the embedded video!}

November 2015 Paper Pumpkin: Mistletoe & Holly

Below you'll find a couple of fun alternate projects I made with Stampin' Up!'s November 2015 Paper Pumpkin Kit: Mistletoe & Holly. If you look at the instruction brochure in the center back, you'll see the kit was to make 5 each of 2 different cards. Using the same supplies, and an extra tool or two, you might instead choose to make 5 each of the two boxes shown in the foreground, plus 5 of the bags shown at center front.


The little boxes will perfectly hold three Lindt Lindor Truffles! (have you tried the new caramel ones? nom nom nom nom nom!!!) And I don't have any Ghirardelli Squares at home with me right now, but I bet you could stack three of those in there, instead. The boxes stay closed with friction, so there's no need for any fancy fastening doo-dads.


Unfortunately, this Paper Pumpkin kit is SOLD OUT! But if you didn't grab a kit or refill for yourself, don't run off just yet!!! I'll be posting a short video (as soon as I can get some replacement bulbs for my lighting) showing you how you can make the boxes and bags--and you can use the same measurements to make these projects out of your own supplies. And I happen to have purchased an extra kit that might want to be offered up for a GIVEAWAY! Just sayin'.

In the meantime, you might want to go get yourself signed for a monthly subscription at my Paper Pumpkin Page no later than 11:59pm MT December 10th, so you don't miss the next amazing kit!

You can also purchase a Prepaid Paper Pumpkin Subscription, where you pay for the term of subscription you want, then you just go enter your promo code on my Paper Pumpkin Page to get delivery started. The Prepaid Subscriptions are super easy to GIFT, because you can pay for them yourself and just pass the promo code to the recipient! This is the kind of gift that makes memories. I still smile when I think of how my Grandma would renew a subscription for Reader's Digest for me every Christmas. I got to think of her every month when it arrived, and every time I pulled an old one off the shelf to look at again :-)
