Project 1: Card Boxes

These card boxes were made from the mini paper pumpkin boxes.  They are perfectly sized for our notecards with envelopes.  They can also fit other treats like hot chocolate packets and cookies.  These designs feature the Trimming the Town designer series paper.

Project 2: Notecards – 2 sets

These cards were made using the Coming Home Stamp set and Home Together Dies that coordinate with the Trimming the Town DSP.  The images were colored using blends.

For the card with 2 houses, the DSP is cut at 2 x 2”. You need it to cover the 3 ½” width, so cut it in half, then adhere to each end leaving a gap in the middle.  The basic black cardstock will cover the gap.

Project 4: Folded Tags – 2 sets

These folded tags fit inside each tin, 4 per tin.  They were made using the 2 house dies from the Home Together Dies.  Each house was cut out in coordinating colors and then the cut-out pieces were reversed for each pair.

For the Old Olive tags, the DSP is cut at 1 x 3”.  You need it to cover the 3 ¼” width, so cut it in half lengthwise, then adhere to each end leaving a gap in the middle.  The white circle will cover the gap.
