Come to Gather Gift Bag for Autumn IRBH

inKing Royalty Blog Hop, September 2019, Autumn

It’s time for the Inking Royalty Blog Hop for September! This month’s theme in Autumn. And what could be more Autumnal than beautifully colored leaves? For my project, I used products from the Come to Gather Suite to decorate a gift bag from last month’s Paper Pumpkin kit. (You can see another project I made using these bags here.) From the suite, I used the Gather Together bundle (Gather Together stamp set and Gathered Leaves Dies) and Come to Gather Designer Series Paper.

I was going to use the Come To Gather Ribbon Combo Pack as well, but I got so carried away with the leaves, I didn’t think it needed it. I used each embossed leaf die (3 in the set) to cut two each of four colors – and I used 18 of the 24 leaves I cut! Guess I just couldn’t stop until I had a big leaf pile! Doesn’t it make you want to jump in and scatter them?

Be sure to hop all the way around to all the stops. You don’t want to miss any of the great projects from this talented group!

Boo to You Everything Festive Coffin Treat Box

For today’s project, I used the Everything Festive and Boo to You stamp sets to decorate a Coffin Box. The Everything Festive stamp set has sentiments for several different holidays and occasions, and the Boo to You stamp set has three adorable little monsters. I used Stampin’ Blends Markers to color the little zombie guy, and I used a couple of the Assorted Googly Eyes to really make him pop!

Here are the stamp sets:

  • Granny Apple Green CS glued onto the inside of the box
  • put lid on the box and wrapped ribbon around it, enough to overlap about 1″ or so on the lid
  • NOTE: Be sure the ribbon is snug enough to stay on, and loose enough to be able to slide it off.
  • adhered the ribbon ends together using Tear & Tape, being careful not to stick it to the lid
  • googly eyes glued onto the zombie (I used a purple eye and an orange eye.) 
  • adhered the zombie oval onto the ribbon using Tear & Tape

Spooktacular Coffin Treat Box

Today’s project is a fun little treat box shaped like a coffin. Stampin’ Up!’s new Coffin Boxes come pre-cut and scored, so you only have to glue the corners to assemble them. There’s a window in the coffin lid so you can see its occupant, a vampire from the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper (DSP.) The coffin is lined with more of the DSP, and the spiders on top are cut from a Black Foil Sheet using the Wicked Dies.

Here’s what I did:

  • cut both pieces along the traced lines

Stamped with the Spooktacular Bash stamp set:

  • sentiment in Whisper White Craft Ink onto a scrap of Basic Gray card stock (CS)
  • heat set the ink using a Heat Tool

Cut using the Ornate Frames Dies:

  • ornate frame from a scrap of Basic Gray CS

Cut using the Wicked Dies:

Cut using the Layering Circles Dies:

  • hole in the die cut ornate frame, and in the top of the coffin box, using the same small die
  • vampire from the Monster Bash DSP, and a scrap of clear Window Sheet, using the same larger die

Assembled the box:

  • burnished the folds in the box and lid with a Bone Folder
  • clear circle adhered onto the inside of the lid, lining the hole, using Tear & Tape
  • vampire adhered onto the clear circle using Tear & Tape, so he shows through the window in the lid
  • box and lid folded and glued into shape
  • one piece of DSP glued onto the inside of the box (bats)
  • the other piece of DSP glued onto the inside of the lid (cobwebs)
  • ornate frame glued onto the top of the lid, around the window
  • sentiment glued onto the top of the lid
  • 3 spiders adhered onto the top of the lid using Mini Glue Dots
  • 2 Red Rhinestones applied onto each spider, to resemble a Black Widow’s hourglass pattern (Yes, I know it’s actually on the bottom of a real spider and not up on its back, but I took a little artistic license.)

Mercury Glass Acetate Mini Curvy Keepsake Box

Today I’m sharing another 2019 Holiday Catalog sneak peek, and another Make & Take project I made for our August Candy Hearts team meeting. Not too long ago we had the Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies, which made a larger version of this box. Now we have this adorable mini version. We used the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies and Mercury Glass Designer Acetate to make this adorable box. It’s perfect for a battery operated tea light, small treats and gifts.
