Fun Shimmery Party Favours using Mini Pizza Boxes from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Inspire.Create.Challenge #033 It’s Party Time, Party Favours with Mini Pizza Boxes

Inspire.Create.Challenge Party Theme

It’s out very last Inspire.Create.Challenge of 2018, and we are going out with a BANG! This challenge will be open for entries for a whole 4 weeks (rather than the usual 2!) and we would LOVE to see your Party themed creations! Maybe your making Table Favours, Thank you Cards, Gift Bags, or some fabulous Decor projects, share them with us over on the Inspire.Create.Challenge blog!

Inspire.Create.Challenge Party Time Theme Challenge Hand Delivered Party Favour with Stampin' Up! Mini Pizza Boxes

At the most recent Stampin’ Up! event I sat with one of my Stampin’ Besties (Sam of Sam’s Crafty Things!) and I realised that I had never actually used one of the Mini Pizza Boxes that have been in the catalogue for a few years. So, when I got home the first thing I got out to craft with was these fab little boxes… and made this fun Party Favour Box. The Mini Pizza Boxes come flat packed, but the slot together really easily, and they are food safe too (and the perfect size for a hand made cookie to two!

I added a hint of colour to this one using a sponge brayer, but you could also colour them by sprintzing or painting.

How to make a fun Table Favour with Mini Pizza Boxes from Stampin' Up!

The stamped panel uses the Hand Delivered Stamp Set. This stamp set is one of the hostess exclusive sets in the Annual Catalogue. These sets are exclusively available to customers who either hosts a party that spends over £150, or places an online order of the same value.

I stamped it with Memento Ink, and then coloured the balloons with a selection of Stampin’ Blends. I did HAVE to add a hint of sparkle to some of the balloons using a paint brush and some Frost White Shimmer Paint, which gives the effect of those fun shimmery balloons.

Right, that’s all from me today, do pop over to the Inspire.Create blog and check out the creations of the other Design Team Members, and share your creations with us too!

Christmas Countdown Non traditional Christmas tags using Snow is Glistening from Stampin' Up!

I whipped 6 of these cute tags in a very short space of time last week, and filmed a tutorial for you to. These are destined for a few special Christmas presents for some very special people. Christmas this year is going to be very low key in our house with our house move and baby on the way, however I will be spoiling my husband with presents as he has the awful job of working night shifts all over the festive period.

The colours here are not what I would consider traditional colours, however I still think these feel very festive.

What festive makes are you making these year?

Team Retreat | Mini Origami Chocolate Boxes

StampinByHannah Team Retreat Mini Origami Chocolate Boxes

Pootlers Team Photo September 2018

Yesterday I shared the mountain of swaps I received from the lovely ladies in that photo at our recent Team Retreat in Manchester. Today, I thought I would share the swap I gave them!

I am a big believer in keeping things simple…. especially when you have to make 50 of something. So, I resized a fun box I shared a few weeks ago to fit a popular hazelnut filled chocolate

Fun no glue mini box using Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper

These cute little boxes are so quick and easy to make. In fact, I recently had to attend a train the trainer day as part of my day job where we had to teach each other a skill…. and I taught these! The other ladies where mesmerised as a flat sheet of paper became a fun and useful box!

Mini Origami Chocolate boxes using Tea Room Designer Series paper from Stampin' Up!

These boxes use the fun Tea Room Speciality Designer Series Paper, as it’s a lighter weight that the standard Stampin’ Up! Paper it’s easier to create the fun origami folds of this box.

StampinByHannah How to make a Twist Top Box using Stampin’ Up! products

I do love a fun box…. and I think this one is particularly good! There are loads of things that you could use if for; candles, a mini bath bomb, chocolate, jewellery…. and I’m sure you’ll think of something I haven’t!

I was inspired by a swap I received from the lovely Jillian probably about a year ago. Jillian’s version was a little smaller and was perfect for holding a trio of tealights, but I wanted something a little bigger…

Origami Pen Holder using Designer Series Paper

no glue pot covers using patterned paper from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Origami Pen Holder using Designer Series Paper

I’m been on a storage kick recently… with my Embellishment holders, Divided Boxes and Memories and More Storage! And today that continues, with these fun Pen Holders made from a single piece of Designer Series Paper and no glue! How cool!

I found these during a Pinterest trawl, when I found THIS blog post from Gathering Beauty.

no glue Designer Series Paper box using Stampin' Up! products

These are super easy to put together, particularly if you use a thinner paper like these ones from the Tea Room Speciality Designer Series Paper pack, or the Frosted Florals from the upcoming Autumn Winter Catalogue.

The ones I’m sharing today use US Letter sized paper, 8-1/2 x 11″ but you can totally use A4 sized paper too, you just get a different sized box at the end! If you use A4 you end up with a more rectangular box, rather than these which are square. Either way though they are going to look fab on your desk holding pens, or on your bed side table holding a tiny plant…. what else could you use these for?

Instructions:

  1. Lay your paper in front of you, with the long edge at the top. Fold the paper in half and open it out again.
  2. Fold in both sides to meet the centre fold, and open back out again.
  3. Next, fold the paper back in half along the centre line and ensure that the folded edge is on the right.
  4. Fold the bottom right corner up to meet the centre line, creating a triangle. Repeat on the top right corner
  5. Take the top layer of paper on the left side, and fold the bottom left corner to meet the centre line to make a triangle. Repeat on the top left.
  6. Then, fold the bottom two triangle up, creating a crease at the along the bottom of the triangles. Repeat this on the top triangles. Open back out and rotate so that your paper now looks like the shape of a house.
  7. Fold the bottom flap up, so that the triangle meet.
  8. Lift this new layer to reveal a pocket. Then, continue to pull to form the back and 2 sides of your box. You might need to re-enforce your creases here to help form your box.
  9. Position your box with the back facing you. There should be 3 squares facing away from you.
  10. Take the right hand square and bring the two scored lines together to form a triangle. Repeat on the left.
  11. Tuck these triangles into the triangular pockets on the sides of your box.

Memories and More Desk Storage Box with Pen Holder

How to make a storage box for your Memories and More cards using Stampin' Up! card stock and Designer Series Paper

StampinByHannah Memories and More Desk Storage Box with Pen Holder

I’m on a bit of a storage making kick at the moment… I think it’s because I keep looking at furniture I can’t buy (yet!), and so making my own crafty storage is a reasonable alternative! I have told the story before about how I was led to card making from scrapbooking, but I don’t think I’ve ever said anything about how much I LOVE pocket scrapbooking! It’s just so quick, and you can whip up and album in just a few hours. My Wedding Album (still under development… and currently at the bottom of a large storage box, because you know; moving!) is mostly made up of Pockets, with some 12 x 12 pages thrown in!

Fun storage for Project Life or Memories and More Cards Video Tutorial

These are some of the new Memories and More cards too… so pretty! I am planning on using these to catch up with my One Little Word Album for 2018, which I am slightly (read: 4 months!) behind with.
