And now it is time for some beautiful Christmas inspiration. We begin with Kendra sharing with us her decorated boxes featuring Holiday Tags, Festive Frames and December 25th Labels. Here’s what Kendra has to say about these beautiful boxes!

“Hello IBS fans!  Has the holiday rush caught up to you yet? It has here, but I am still enjoying making projects to give those special people in my life!

I created two pretty boxes to share with you today!

First up is my snowflake box:

On each of the sides I stamped a single snowflake from the December 25th Labels set.

I added some die cut snowflakes to the top, a stick pin and a stamped Let It Snow tag from the Holiday Tags!

I intended on adding truffles I made to this box, but after finishing I thought it would make a great gift box to give handmade ornaments in…

So now I will have to create some glittery ornaments as well as some more fun boxes!!

I have one more box to share with you today! 🙂

Recently the kids and I had a lovely baking day, making all kids of candy and cookies!  Which is why I was set out to create this packages to begin with!

I used the Fancy Labels 2 Die along with the Festive Frames set to create this pretty label for the top of the box.

I also added a few Poinsettia’s to the top as well!

On each side I used one of the borders from the Delicate Doilies II set!   As well as then adding rhinestones in between!

I think it adds a nice touch!

Have a lovely day!

Everybody uses sticky notes for quick to-do’s and lists and I was looking at mine thinking it would look so pretty with if I dazzled it up a bit. Smile So today I am sharing with you how to create a quick and easy sticky note holder.

Inspired by Stamping, Joanna Munster, Sticky Note Holder, All Year Wishes stamp set

After creating this one, I wish that I made these for the teachers this year. What a great idea and they are super quick to make. I bought the template for these at the Silhouette store. No more fussy cutting! I first cut out the base and then used some Prima paper for my layering which was also cut with the Silhouette.

All Year Wishes stamp set was used for the sentiment, “just a note”. I then cut out my layers using our Fancy Labels 2 Die. I then distressed each piece of paper and popped them up on foam dimensionals. I also used some Scallop Border Crochet Trim and IBS flowers for a little more shabby chic style.

Here’s the inside of the sticky note. I used some tacky glue on the bottom of my sticky note so that it doesn’t move around. I also cut a little strip of Velcro and attached it to the bottom of the front cover. It lays on the other side of my button and keeps my sticky note holder closed when I don’t need it.

Here is a photo of the holder all opened up on the outside. It was so simple to make. Just cut it out with the Silhouette and decorate! Easy peesy!

    Wow beautiful boxes. But I cant take my eyes off the sticky note holder. love the colours. Much nicer than a boring sticky note pad.

    The boxes are pretty–I especially like the blue one. It can be used for winter in general, Christmas, or Hanukkah.

    I have to check out that notebook pattern. Such a great idea and decorated so nice.
