Stampers Dozen Blog Hop...Move Me
Nature's Harvest

Creativity Abounds Blog Hop...Anything but Christmas


Welcome to the Creativity Abounds Blog Hop!  We are an international group of Stampin' Up!® demonstrators.  We hop on the third Wednesday of the month.  This month our theme is Anything but Christmas from the  2021 July-December Mini Catalog.  Every month we also create a tutorial which is available for purchase featuring an additional project following the theme for the month.  


I chose to use the Nature's Harvest bundle for my project.  This bundle is part of the Harvest Meadow Suite.  This suite has it all from a beautiful stamp set and dies to a 3D embossing folder (Timeworn Type), ribbon (3/8" Diamond Weave ribbon), Brushed Metallic Dots, and Cork Specialty paper. 


This box is one of the Kraft Gift Boxes which can be found on page 11 of the Mini Catalog.  I wanted to highlight these boxes since I think they can be easily overlooked.  The boxes are food safe which makes them great to package treats like a cookie or candy.  The boxes are also sized to fit both A2 and C6  envelopes..  

The boxes are stampable and come with an acetate window.  Love how this gives a sneak peek of what is inside.  The boxes also come with adhesive strips on the tabs which makes putting them together very quick and easy.  Your box comes together in  just minutes, giving you more time to for the fun part, decorating!


I used some of the Harvest Meadow DSP to make a belly band.  I added some die cuts using the Harvest Dies.  I cut the stem of the flower and part of the flower in Old Olive and then die cut just the flower part from Calypso Coral CS.  I added some Early Espresso ink to the top of the flower using a Blending Brush and attached it to the Old Olive stem.  The long label is also from the Harvest Dies.  I inked up just the first 2 lines of the sentiment from the Nature's Harvest stamp set in Early Espresso ink.  It was surprisingly easy to do.  On either end of the label I attached  Brushed Metallic Dots.


This is an A-2 envelope .  I would say the box would easily hold 3-4 cards and envelopes, depending of course on how thick the cards are. 

Time for you to hop along and check out what the rest of the time Creativity Abounds Team has created for you!
