INSTRUCTIONS: Watch This Video for Basic Baker’s Box instructions. 1. Cut your Baker’s Box Thinlit twice from Thick Whisper White card stock cut at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Fold all score lines so each piece looks the same. 2. Choose the Washi Tape pattern you like and apply next to the fold lines as shown in photo. 3. Add your Tear & Tape to the side tabs and the bottom flaps.
~Side Flaps (smaller): With the outside facing up, put Tear & Tape on the outside edge and the bottom on both pieces.
~Front and Back Flaps (larger with V in the center. I leave this part flat):
~~Front: Put Tear & Tape on the INSIDE of both sides of the V.
~~Back: Put Tear & Tape on the OUTSIDE of both sides of the V. 4. Punch and assemble Poinsettia Flower.
~Punch 4 times from Red Glimmer Paper.
~Fold all flower pieces in half length-wise with a Bone Folder so your flower will have some dimension.
~Attach two of the small double flowers that look like a funny bow tie in the center with a Glue Dot or two.
~Attach the four medium petals in between the smaller petals that you already attached. Use at least two Glue Dots.
~Now add the four large petals so they line up with the small center petals. If you want your flower to look more round add two more large petals.
~My flower was not holding together well so I criss-crossed Tear & Tape across the back of the large and medium Petals, then attached it to the front of the box.
~Add two of the + pieces to the center with the white side showing. Use a Glue Dot in the center of each and attach to the Flower center. 3. Assemble your Box: Attach the side Tabs. Now for the bottom flaps: sides first, then the Back Flap, and the Front Flap is last. 4. Finish:
~Stamp Merry Christmas on Whisper White card stock in Real Red ink. Cut out with the Desired Tags & Labels Framelit. Make sure and use the Small Circle Framelit to cut out the hole. Or you can use a 1/4″ Hole Punch like I did. Tie it onto the front hole in your Baker’s Box. Use a Glue Dot to hold it in position.
~Tie your Baker’s Box closed with the 3/4″ Real Red Ribbon.

Have fun making YOUR OWN Wonder of Christmas Angel card!
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Stamp your Sleigh with VersaMark ink on Real Red card stock. Lay your card stock on the printer paper and cover well with the Real Red Glitter embossing powder. Remove excess from your card stock and melt with your heat tool. Put excess embossing powder back into jar. Fold and throw away your printer paper to prevent glitter from going everywhere. Repeat this process for your Tree using Emerald Envy card stock, VersaMark ink, and Emerald Envy Glitter embossing powder.
NOTE: When using Glitter Embossing Powder with the Heat Tool: make sure it all gets melted by holding under a good light and angling your card stock so you can see when the embossing powder flattens out. It will also change color slightly. After it cools a bit rub your finger over it to make sure it is all smooth and melted. If there is any part that feels powdery still, melt that part with your Heat Tool. 2. Stamp your Reindeer on Crumb Cake card stock with Early Espresso ink. 3. Cut your Sleigh, Tree, and Reindeer out with the coordinating dies and your Big Shot. The Sleigh and Reindeer need to be lined up exactly. Use a Post-it Note to hold them in place if necessary. 4. Cut your Whisper White card stock at 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″. Run through your Big Shot with the Softly Falling embossing folder making sure to get the heavier snow in the position you want. Glue to your 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ Thick Whisper White card base which you have SCORED and folded at 4-1/4″. 5. Lay out your sleigh, reindeer, and tree in the positions you want them.
~Glue the Tree on first.
~Tie a bow as shown on the Sleigh leaving the Twine on the left about 2-1/2″ long so you can attach it behind the Reindeer.
~Then glue the sleigh in place covering up the tree properly.
~Tie a bow around the Reindeer’s neck. I put a bit of SNAIL on the back of his neck to keep it in place. Put Glue on the back of your Reindeer and position on your card front making sure to attach the Baker’s Twine so he can pull the Sleigh.

My friend Deborah made these Christmas Tags for me as a Thank You. Use these ideas as a starting point to creating some Christmas Tags of your own. She used Stamps and ink, the Oh What Fun stamp set, Punches, Her Big Shot and some Framelits, stickers, silver embossing powder, gold cord, Baker’s Twine, Ribbons, and Rhinestones. So grab some supplies and a Christmas movie and have fun making some Christmas Tags! She used the retired Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Punch.
She used the Oh What Fun stamp set and the retired Snowflake punch.
She used the Bird Builder Punch, the Corner Rounder Punch, and the Merry Everything stamp set.
She used the Oh What Fun stamp set, the retired Labels Framelits, and a circle punch.

Merry Christmas! I hope you are enjoying spending time with family and friends to celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. Here is a card made with My Digital Studio. Below is a tree my grandson and I made together last Sunday. We made the tree base from card stock by tracing around my largest dinner plate and turning it into the cone shape. He chose the Nordic Noel paper because it had tree parts and pine cones on it. He LOVES Pine Cones!

I attended a Christmas Party with some Stampin’ Up! Friends on Saturday and received this gift from my sideline-Karen Bouchikas. She is very creative and thoughtful. She said I could share this on my blog.
1. Stamp “Merry” on the box front with either White StazOn OR use VersaMark ink and White embossing powder. 2. Fill Box. 3. Tie Burlap Ribbon around box. Trim edges diagonally. Slip a candy cane underneath if desired. 4. Make your Tag. Cut your Designer Series Paper at 2″ x 3″. Cut the top with the Angled Tag Topper Punch. Stamp Two Mosiacs on Whisper White card stock: one in Cherry Cobbler ink and one in Wild Wasabi ink. Also stamp one of the small designs in Cherry Cobbler. Punch out the Mosaics with the Mosaic Punch. Cut out the small design and attach it to the Green Mosaic. Add Rhinestones to the center of each Mosaic. Attach to your Tag using a Dimensional underneath one of them if desired. Stamp your sentiment on 3/8″ x 3″ Whisper White card stock. Use Baker’s Twine to attach your Tag to your Burlap Bow. Your Gift Box is now decorated!
1. Decide who will be getting this Journal. Stamp the first letter of their name in Real Red ink on Whisper White card stock. Punch out with the 1-3/8″ Circle Punch. Put Dimensionals on the back. 2. Stamp the Tag shape with the Rose Coral Chalk ink on Chalkboard Paper (Basic Black just won’t look as good with this ink.) Punch it out with the Note Tag Punch. Put Dimensionals on the back. 3. Choose two Ribbons. 1/4″ Whisper White Cotton Ribbon and 1/8″ Real Red Taffeta were used. Cut a 2″ length of each. Fold them in half and staple onto the top of your Tag. Now add the Circle Punch with the letter on it. 4. Run two strips of Washi Tape along the folded edge of your Journal. Rub the Washi Tape really well so it will stay attached. Otherwise the ends tend to come up. 5. Position your Tag as desired and attach with Dimensionals.
