Hello everyone, it’s Ellen here. Welcome to the ThermOWeb blog. I hope you had a wonderful holiday already. Today I’d like to share a festive thank you gift and thank you card.
At this time of the year my husband and I have a lot of invitations to celebrate Christmas and New Year. Some of these invites are a little later than their actual holidays. For these invites, I like to make thank you gifts and cards that look festive, but not completely scream Christmas.
Holiday Treat Box Set
The first item you can see in this blog post is this fun treat box in the shape of a handbag. Just like my last post I used a bunch of products from the Gina K. Designs line from ThermOWeb. In addition, I used some stamps, dies, and papers from PhotoPlay Paper.
Let me show you how the paper handbag was made…
To begin making this paper handbag I used the Premium Cardstock Luxury White and a die that helps cut out the shape. It’s sturdy paper and that makes it perfect to use it.
To decorate the bag I did cut out parts of the designer paper from PhotoPlay Paper and stick it to the bag with the permanent adhesive dot runner. For the handle, I used super tape, so it hangs firmly on the bag.
Later I created the foiled ‘wishes’. You can get that effect by transferring the Gina K. Design ‘Gold Sequins Fancy Foils’ on top of a ‘Deco Foil Toner Sheet’ with the help of a laminator. Then I did cut the word with a die.
When the bag was almost made I created a tag. I did stamp ‘thank you’ by stamping part of a sentiment from the ‘Petals and Wings’ stamp set with embossing powder. Further, I stamped, inked, and cut the ladybug illustration from the same stamp set. The spots were made by using the coordinating stencil and Glitz Glitter Gel. The heart was made with the ‘elements’ die set from the Kringle and Co line from Photoplay. In that die sheet, you also have a printed paper using black toner ink. That ink is perfect to add more foil!
On the inside, I attached a Velcro sticker. This makes opening and closing the handbag very easy.
A gift bag is of course not enough. I also love to give a thank you card for the host(ess).
The card was made using the Kringle & Co and Christmas Memories 6×6 paper pad from PhotoPlay. The nice thing is that the patterns of the handbag are in a smaller format in these paper pads. It’s therefore perfect to make a matching card.
I did cut out some paper shapes. For one of the shapes, I used the ‘Nested Label’, Wafer-Thin Dies.
Wishing You Joy
Next I did stamp and cut some floral pieces with two different red colors. For this I used the ‘Wishing You Joy’ and the ‘Petals and Wings’ stamp and die set from the Gina K. Designs line. The two smaller elements are from the ‘Santa Elements’ set from Photoplay.
Deco Foil White Foam Adhesive
The word ‘thanks’ was created the same way I foiled the ‘wishes’ word from the handbag. Before I did cut out the word I attached Deco Foil White Foam Adhesive. The foam makes sure the word stands out a little more.
I hope this blogpost gave you inspiration for these small thank you gifts for late holiday invitations. Thanks for stopping by and visiting us today! Have a wonderful start of the new year; 2020!
