Stampin Friends Blog Hop - Give Thanks

Welcome to the Stampin Friends Blog Hop for October! 

This month's theme is 'Give Thanks'. 

If you are following along with the Hop, you may have arrived from  Steph's Blog. 

Be sure to read through my post, comment below and then continue on to Heidi's Blog. 

If you get lost along the way, you can find a full list of all the participants at the end of each of their Blog Posts.

Here are the projects I created for this month's Hop ...

I use the beautiful Artistically Inked stamp set and coordinating Artistic Dies, together with the stunning Expressions In Ink Specialty Designer Series Paper to create a Gift/Treat Box and a matching card.

The Box measures 3" cubed, so there is room for a small gift or lots of sweet treats.

You pull on the Ribbon loop on the top of the Box to remove the lid.

The card is a fancy fold, called a Double Gate Fold. If you are interested in seeing how these are made, you can find the details HERE.

When closed the card measure 6" x 4" so will fit into a C6 envelope. If you want it to fit into a A2 envelope, you will need to reduce the height to 5½".

Here is the Video ...
