Creating Kindness Blog Hop – Poinsettia Place Gift Box – Team Craftoberfest. Today is time for our monthly Creating Kindness Blog Hop, and we have got some AMAZING projects to share with you today. Our Guest Designer this month is the ever so talented Jo Blackman. Jo and I worked together a couple of years ago when we were both appointed to join the UK Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Council. It was great to get to know her and I am in awe of her talent.
Out Theme this month is Gifts and Gift Packaging. I am going to bury my modesty with this one. My project is STUNNING! I know I shouldn’t say this, but seriously, just take a look at this and tell me I am wrong!
Everything, other than the ribbon and trim, is from the Poinsettia Place Suite in the August to December Mini Catalogue. I used the Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper as the backing for my topper for the Gold Mini Pizza Box. This is a great base for the rest of the decoration, all of which is really simple to put together.
I die cut the Poinsettia Petals from Red Velvet Paper. If you line the dies up correctly, you can cut and emboss the Red Velvet Paper in one pass of the Cut & Emboss Machine. To get added dimension, I layered all the petals together using Dimensionals, this gives a much more realistic result.
To add even more glamour, I added some extra die cuts (from Gold Foil and from the Plush Paper), some Real Red Sheer Ribbon and frayed gold trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo. But this left me in a bit of a quandary, all that gold, with silver mounted Beaded Pearls. Easy solution, colour the whole thing with Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends, chose Light or Dark depending on the depth of gold you want.
I LOVE the finished effect of all these layers. Just one word for it ‘LUXURY’! This needs to be used for a very special gift to a very special person in your life. Oh, and I nearly forgot to mention that this is another of the projects I made for the Team Craftoberfest event! Now, please go and look at the other projects. As I am at the end of the list of Hoppers, if you click the NEXT button you will go straight to Jo Blackman’s project!
