Merry & Bright with Sweet Candy Canes

We have less than a week left in Sale-a-Bration – and there are still a lot of products to earn. By buying the new products you love (like bundles, dies and tools) and stocking up on the consumables you’ll soon need (like paper, ribbon and adhesives), you can earn these fun rewards before they are gone. How fun! To review all the available Sale-a-Bration offerings, including the new items added in August, CLICK HERE.

Today I’m sharing a gift box I made using the Kraft Gift Boxes that are available for purchase or available to be earned with a $50 order. I decorated the 4-1/2″ x 6-5/8″x 3/4″ kraft box with an assortment of goodies from Stampin’ Up!’s July-December 2022 Mini Catalog. Here’s the box:

I’ve added five products from Stampin’ Up!’s July-December 2022 Mini Catalog and 2022 Annual Catalog to my Kraft Gift Box. Can you identify all five? I know you can (I trust you have studied those catalogs back and forth), but I’m still going to identify them for you. ♥

  • Candy Cane Bundle (#161052). The candy canes are stamped with the Sweet Candy Canes stamp set and cropped with the Candy Canes Dies. My Candy Canes are Sweet Sorbet and Pool Party.
  • Decorated Pine Dies (#159710). There are several options for greenery behind the candy canes. I chose the tree branch from the Decorated Pine Dies, part of the Decorated with Happiness Bundle. Two branches gave me exactly what I needed for the bed of greenery behind my candy canes.
  • Santa Express Memories & More Card Pack (#159595). The Kraft Gift Box features an acetate window, but I wanted more. I glued one of the acetate sheets from the Memories & More pack to this inside of the window so that “Merry & Bright” would shine through.
  • Sweetest Christmas Designer Series Paper (#159559). On the base of the inside of the box, I added a panel of candy cane stripes from the Sweetest Christmas Designer Series Paper. It ties in the candy canes from the front of the box and a lovely backdrop for the window.
  • Brushed Metallic Dots (#156506). Once my festive candy canes and greenery were added to the top of this box, I peppered the design with four gold metallic dots. The added shine adds a little something special.

Here’s a closer look a the candy canes and greenery on this decorated box:

I pulled the colors for the cluster atop my gift box from the Sweetest Christmas Designer Series Paper. I love this combination of Sweet Sorbet, Pool Party and Garden Green so much! If you love this combo as much as I do, I hope you’ll save this for future reference:
