Luv 2 Stamp Blog Hop November Theme Christmas Fitting Florets Mug Gift Box mug bo


Welcome to the Luv 2 Stamp Group’s 2022 Blog Hop! We are excited to share projects with you this year and hope to inspire you to create beautiful new projects. Each month we will have a different theme based on the next month’s celebrations using Stampin’ Up! products. 

Once you are done with each post, scroll down to the bottom and you will see a list of Blog Hop participants. You can click on their name to go to their post, or you can click the next button to go to the next post in line. Happy crafting! This month’s theme is Christmas.

Since this month's theme is Christmas, I decided to use my favorite paper, Fitting Florets DSP.  I needed a box for a mug that I purchased for a gift. I used Soft Succulent cardstock and the mistle toe sheet from Fitting Florets DSP. I did take inspiration from Ann Melvin Ann Melvin. Her video shows how to make it. 

 Cut List: 

Soft Succulent: 11"x12" (2) 

Score on the short side at 6" and 10-1/2"

On the long side score at 1/2", 5", and 9-1/2"

Soft Succulent Inside: 7"x 5-1/2"

Score 1/2" on all sides.

DSP:  5 7/8" X 4 3/8"  (Cut 4)

         4 3/8" X 4 3/8"  (Cut 2)

I used my Dark Real Red Stampin' Blends to color the berries, making this look even more like Christmas. In addition, the directions calls for 3 pieces, but I cut one more for the bottom of the box, after it was folded. It provides a clean look for the gift box.

Here is the inside of the box. At the bottom, the cup sits on piece with a whole cut in the cardstock.

After the box is finished, wrap the box with Real Red Ribbon and Evening Evergreen Open Weave Ribbons and make someone's day with such a lovely gift.
