Stampers with ARt Stars Gift Exchange

On Tuesday night I got to go to Rachel Tessman’s house for a Stampers With ARt gift exchange.  I always have such a fun time with this group of stampers.

Here is what I made for the gift exchange, on Tuesday I’ll post what I got there.

J. Pollock Designs - Stampin' Up! - Santa bag

J. Pollock Designs - Stampin' Up! - Whole Lot of Lovely Explosion box

I followed the instructions for the explosion box from here.

For the Santa bag:

Cut the Real Red Cardstock to 7 3/4″ x 12″.  Score along the long edge at 3″, 5 3/4″, 8 3/4″, 11 1/2″.  Score along the short side at 5″.

I created the belt buckle with the Everyday Label Punch.  For the gold foil piece, I punched out a lable and then stuck it back in to shorten it.  For the basic black piece, I started with a 1″ wide piece of cardstock and lined it up with the interior points on the punch. The gold foil is again left over from the Watercolor Christmas kit but you can use gold foil sheets also.

I used the 1/8″ circle punch for the ribbon holes but the 1/16″ would be much better.  I had to use some beads to keep the ribbon from coming out.  I don’t remember which circle punch I used to hold the Eos but it was a little too small.  Also, I added a 1/2″ to the Eos holder part so I could fold the cardstock under and adhere it to the box.
