Hanging Boxes on the Christmas Tree--DIY

Tuesday, December 16, 2014

It’s always a little hard trying to find the cutest way to put a gift card under the Christmas tree but this quick and easy DIY will help remedy that minor issue. Lawn Fawn has the most adorable little goodie bag die (you can find it by clicking here), and aside from using it as a treat box you can also use it a gift card holder and even hang it from your Christmas tree. Problem solved!

If you’re already a papercrafter all you’ll need is this die (if you don’t already have it), some pattern paper, and this twine. You can create your own tag with any dies you’d like however, if you wanted to know which die and stamps I’m using to create this tag you can click, here, here, here and here.

All I did was cut two of the box die cuts using my Cuttlebug and assembled it using some adhesive. Next I created the tag with the stamps and die mentioned above. Next I took some twine and simply wrapped it around the box a few times to keep it sealed nicely and then tied a knot at the end of the remaining twine—just like you would with a tag.

Quick, simple, and super adorable! 

DIY Mini Stationary Box--4 Bar Size--Video and Printable Instructions

Monday, December 15, 2014



Hi everyone! Today I'm super excited to be sharing a new stationary box DIY. This time around it's a smaller size--4 Bar size to be exact. So that means the awesome Lawn fawndamentals note cards will fit perfectly inside, and the envelopes too. However, not only will this box hold stationary, it can also be used for carrying a gift card or a sweet treat, too! 

I'm also offering a free printable with written instructions on how to create these mini boxes. Click here for that free printable! This will make creating tons of these so much easier. You can view the video to watch how I assembled it but the written instructions will help you so that you can don't have to keep pressing stop or rewind of the video, hehe. 

I was so excited to create these boxes with the paper, Snow Boots, from the new, Snow Day, collection. This pattern paper is too perfect! If you do create some of your own I'd love to see them--I've had several of you send me IG messages with pictures of the A2 size card boxes and I'd love it if you shared your pictures of these, too. You can find my on IG @unifyhandmade 

I really hope you enjoy this!

Wednesday, December 10, 2014

It's day four of the Lawn Fawn Release week and today they revealing the new dies! Click here for day one, click here for day two, and click here for day there. LF has released another set of stitched dies but this time they are the circles! What fun right?! You could create everything from banners, to shaker cards, place cards, and even cupcake toppers--the stitched edge details is so very elegant. I just love it. I used these dies to create the 'INSPIRE' banner above along with the Louie's ABCs dies, and Flutter by. If you take a look at the banner you'll notice I used dies to cut those out, and that's because LF is also releasing the coordinating die set for Flutter by! It's that so awesome?!

Another die that will be released is the new installment in the scripty die collection. They've added this adorable 'love' scripty die that is perfect for Valentine's Day. Aside from it being used for Valentine's day, it can also be used for a just-because card, anniversary card and many other things! You can use it like I did above by using the negative space to create a shaker card or take the positive and use on a card front or as a cupcake topper!

Lastly, I have this 'Fly away with me' card and I'm using the new stamp set, Bugs and Kisses, stamp set along with the coordinating dies; and, I'm also using Hello Sunshine--GREAT NEWS is they are also releasing the coordinating dies for Hello Sunshine now. In the last card shown above you can see how I used the dies for the inlayed sun and cloud; however, I also used those dies for the balloons.

My Thanksgiving Decor and a Black Friday Coupon Code

Friday, November 28, 2014

I just wanted to share a quick post with some of the pictures I took yesterday of the DIY decor I created for our Thanksgiving celebration. The mason jars and bottles were all hand painted by the two nights before—as well as the place cards and “give thanks” banner. Everything was doing kind of last minute. I went to the flower market in downtown Los Angeles and found so many pretty flowers and I got them all for a really great price. I think because they were so cheap I ended up buying way more than I really needed but that’s ok. The extra flowers will be placed all around the house.

I had such a great time spending time with family that I don’t really see that much; and, it was so nice to be able to eat all of my favorite foods! My sister is in professional baking school and she created some amazing treats for us—like the naked cake, bread, and pumpkin pie cheese cake (not pictured). Aside from doing all of the decorating I managed to make a spinach dip that only lasted about an hour and I also made my famous lemonade but this time I added cranberries, too.

To give thanks to everyone that has ever purchased from me I’m offering a 50% off coupon for my shop! If you’re in need of anything Christmas cards, stamps, baby shower decor, banner, or wedding items head over to my shop and use the coupon code: UNIFYB50


I hope you all have a great weekend!
