Control Freaks Tour: Jingle All The Way!


Welcome to the Control Freaks November . We are thrilled to have you join us today. Our tour features some of your favorite Control Freaks Stampers sharing projects made with Stampin' Up! products. In fact, you may have just come from Melissa Davies blog.

Our theme for this month is: Jingle All The Way!


Gift Box Punch Board Snowman

Ever since I got my hands on the Stampin' Up! Gift Box Punch Board, I had envisioned a "stacked" snowman.  I even made up three white gift boxes right away.  Then I must have gotten distracted and never finished the project (does that happen you too?).  So today was the day to finish it.  What do you think?  It looks perfect sitting on my fireplace. But you could also fill each box with a little surprise for a fun gift.

You'll need to make the following box sizes:

  • 4" square box - Whisper White (12x12)
  • 3-1/4" square box - Whisper White (10x10)
  • 2-1/2" square box - Whisper White (8x8)
  • 1-3/4" square box - Basic Black (6x6)
  • Hat Brim - Basic Black (4x4)

Holiday Treat Fry Box

Holiday Treat Fry Box with Merry Everything Bundle create by Dawn Olchefske, dostamping  #christmashome #holidaypackaging  #stampinup

If you have to make a lot of holiday treats - Stampin' Up!'s Fry Box Die was made just for you!  The die cuts & scores for you and with just a little adhesive you're done!  Before assembling, I quickly stamped some snowflakes from the Project Life December Wonder stamp set (from the Holiday Supplement).

I added the Note Tag Punch stamped with the Merry Everything stamp set.  Tied off some "jingle bells" (I's a stretch) made with the round tag die from the Curvy Keepsakes Box Thinlit Dies.

Insert candy and you're done!  Actually, it was the candy that inspired this box.  The blue foiled wrapped candy is Hershey's Cookies & Cream Kisses, and reminded me of "silver bells".
