Back around Halloween, a lot of my fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators and I had a fun time making boxes to hold the purse-sized bottles of Bath and Body Works' seasonal hand sanitizers. Well, I just could not wait until I could get my hands on some Christmas versions. And I did – I ordered up 50 of the bottles, not having a clue about what I was going to do with them.
Then came the opportunity to participate in a local craft fair (which is today, by the way!). But with 50 of them, I didn't want to make as large a box as I'd made for the very few Halloween bottles I'd bought. So I fussed a bit with the original pattern that I shared in my Halloween tutorial and came up with the smaller version I needed. The tutorial is right here for you to enjoy!
I used stamps from the oh-so-much-fun Jolly Bingo Bits stamp set in the Stampin' Up! 2010 Holiday Mini Catalog. Stampin' Up! has said that this stamp set is going to be around for awhile, and I can hardly wait to see what they do with stamps for other holidays! But for now, I'm really enjoying using this set THIS holiday season. And you'll be seeing some more of it over the next few days as I share more of what we did with the Craft Fair! I also used the last of my dwindling supply of the Candy Cane Lane Designer Papers. Boo – Stampin' Up! has run out of it!! But I have enough for my Stampin-A-Stack session next weekend in Robin's Craft Room. There's still room for 1 more person in the class (well, I might be able to squeeze one more in after that). So, if you're on the East Side of Hawaii's Big Island, and you'd like to come, just give me a call (808.854.6145) or send an e-mail and I'll sign you up!
Whatever you're doing this weekend, have a LOT of fun with it!
