One of my most favorite things about the holidays is fun DIY projects. This includes everything from home decor to custom gift wrap. I never realized how super simple (and inexpensive) it is to stamp on regular postal kraft paper and turn it into something beautiful. For this box, I used a layered wreath stamp set. I find that stamps set like this one make the gift wrap look very finished and professional. They are several different companies that make layered stamp sets both for the holidays and all year around. I would recommend using pigment ink when stamping on kraft paper because it sits on top of the paper and doesn’t soak into the paper like dye ink, I have found in my experience that the colors stay more vibrant and true. I especially like the pigment inks from Avery Elle and Colorbox Pigment Petals. I have also used some StazOn to stamp on a simple white gift bag and Hero Arts Unicorn White Pigment Ink to stamp on a kraft bag. Make sure to watch the video below to see just how I created these projects.
Next up are some 2 minute pillow boxes perfect for gift cards. Simply pick your favorite pattern paper, run through your die cutting machine, and add some simple embellishment. For these I used a Lawn Fawn die, Sizzix Big Shot, and paper from American Crafts.
Lastly, I wanted a fun canvas to add to our mantel this year and decided to make it using a cut file and the Silhouette Cameo. I picked two images and paired them together then cut using some gold foil card stock. I also cut the images from vinyl and preferred those results and would recommend that instead of card stock because you don’t have to add glue to vinyl! Huge bonus! 🙂 Once adhered to a plain 12×12 canvas, you end up with this adorable addition to your holiday home decor.
I hope you have enjoyed a look at some of my holiday projects. There is a video and links to some of the products used below. Thanks so much for stopping by!
