Savor the Season Projects

I earned this Hostess CD with my last order!  It is such a fun My Digital Studio digital kit which can be used all year round Just by changing the papers and words used!  This little box took me less than 15 minutes to make.  Most of that time was spent looking for my Sticky Strip.  I guess I need to clean off my table again.  I have also included a Stampin’ Up! video that shows more things you can do with this digital kit.  Note:  This little box contains 20 Hershey Kisses.

Merry Christmas chocolate gift

DIRECTIONS:
Version 1.  Designer Template

1a.  Open up My Digital Studio.  (Click “Next” after each selection.)   Select “Multiple Output Options.”  Then select “8-1/2″ x 11″ Portrait.”   Select “Designer” Template.  Scroll down to and select “Savor the Season-Gift Box.”  You will see the 3 box choices in this template.  Add or remove pages as desired.  You can also add pages later if you want.  Choose “Insert photos individually.”  Type in a title for your project. Select finish.
1b.  Choose the box you want from the thumbnails at the bottom.  You can add a punch if you want.  On my test version (done after I made my box), I added a Decorative Label punch which I colored Riding Hood Red with the “Merry Christmas” from the Bells and Boughs digital stamp set.  I did change the color of the stamp to Whisper White so you could actually read it.
1c.  Print.  Cut.  Score.  Assemble.  I used my paper trimmer to cut all the straight lines and cut the angles with my paper snips.  Line up the straight edges and score.  Put sticky strip on the tabs and fold in.  You are done in less than 10 minutes!
Version 2.  Digital Punch
2a.
  Open up My Digital Studio.   (Click “Next” after each selection.)   Select “Multiple Output Options.”  Then select “8-1/2″ x 11″ Portrait.”   Select “Create Your Own” Template.  Go to “Punches.”  Go to “Extras”  and select “Savor the Season-Gift Box.”  (When selecting elements in My Digital Studio, you can either double click and then select “Close” OR you can highlight the item and select “Apply.”)
2b.  Next click on the gray punch shape so you see the little “Resizing squares” at the edges and corners of your “paper.”   Choose either “Color Fill” to make a solid card stock color, OR “Paper Fill” to fill with a digital Designer Series Paper, OR “Color Match” to match a certain color in a photo or other item you have placed on the screen.
2c.  Add any other elements you want to the page.
2d.   Print.  Cut.  Score.  Assemble.  I used my paper trimmer to cut all the straight lines and cut the angles with my paper snips.  Line up the straight edges and score.  Put sticky strip on the tabs and fold in.  You are done in less than 10 minutes!
