Growing in Unity November Blog Hop

Welcome to the Growing In Unity Blog Hop.  Back in September, I was lucky enough to be a GIU gal for a week.  Unity Stamp Company is the reason I have such a huge amount of stamps.  They have so many great and different kinds of stamps in red rubber.  The images always stamp so well from the start.  The participants from September and October are doing a blog hop this week and if you leave comments on all the participants blogs, you could win a great Unity grab bag as a prize.  

They are having a really great sale now through November 17th and you can get a couple of free stamps if your order is above $65 and free shipping if above $75.  I placed my order the first day of the sale and received it in record time, so I am using the free stamps along with a couple of others in my project.

These are little boxes that I made to put some ornaments that I made to put in Christmas stockings this year.  I did it last year and tied the boxes, but this year decided that a band around the box could slide off easily and then be replaced when storing the ornaments for next year, keeping the box together.  It’s Christmas-Oh Deer, and the Gnome -one Like You were the free stamps.  The other two were from Full of Merry and the October 2020 KOM . It was a simple and quick way to make the boxes cute and festive.  

Make sure to visit all of the participants on the blog hop and leave a comment.  The full list is below.

    • Thank you. The boxes are simple ones that a friend showed me years ago. I started with the measurements I wanted the box to be (4” x4.5”) added how high I wanted the box (1.5”) to both sides, top and bottom. I cut two pieces of cardstock those dimensions (7’ x 7.5”). On one, I scored all four sides 1.5” from the edge then cut on each end up the score line to where they crossed to make flaps. When you fold everything up, you glue the flaps on the inside to make the box. The lid is made the same way, but score slightly closer to the edge so it fits over the bottom. I hope that makes sense. You can google it to see it a little better.

  1. What a great idea this is! I may have to try it – I always make an ornament for my nieces & nephews to give them on Thanksgiving. Love them all!
