Embossed Birthday Bag by Shery

Hello, SRM friends! Shery here to share a quick and easy birthday treat bag project. One of my nephews turned 9 recently and while we were getting together the gifts we were sending him, I needed something for the gift card and a few sticker packs. Usually I'd make a gift card holder, but I decided to do something different.  The SRM Embossed Bag was perfect for this project!

SRM Stickers - #embossed #chevron #bags #giftbag #srmstickers

I started with the 4" by 6" chevron embossed kraft bag. I simply decorated the front with various fun birthday stickers from SRM's Birthday Border and We've Got Your Sticker/Happy.  I layered a couple of punched pieces together and used one of the happy birthday stickers from the Take 2 Stickers Birthday on top. I folded the kraft bag with the topper, punched two holes, and used shore  twine to close the bag. Using twine to close the bag is so much easier because I simply could untie it without ripping out the bag to put little gifts inside. No glue or tape to mess with.

By the time we got my nephew's gifts all packaged, this little birthday kraft bag was thick and full of little gifts for him that I kept finding in my stash.  There you have it -- a quick and easy birthday treat bag.

Elf on the Shelf by Christine

Hello from Christine Meyer!  The holidays are rapidly approaching and I for one am getting ready.  I don't have time to do a lot in advance, but when this idea came to me, I just knew I had to create it and SRM Stickers had just the right stuff to put those plans into action!  The new Kraft Boxes available from SRM were the perfect container for making an "I'm Back" box from our Elf on the Shelf.

SRM Stickers - Christine Meyer - #kraft #stickers #christmas #srmstickers

My plan is to put this little box out on Thanksgiving night (or at some point that weekend) as we begin our annual visitiation time from the Elf on the Shelf.  I decorated the outside of the box using lots of stickers:  

I also cut out the words "I'm Back" using glossy vinyl in Lime Tree Green.  And of course there are some of those fabulous Punched Pieces that we all love so much!

I plan to stick him inside like this so it won't be obvious what's in there until they open it!  

SRM Stickers - Christine Meyer - #kraft #stickers #christmas #srmstickers

Tucked nicely beneath him will be a package of marshmallows and four bags with hot cocoa in them.

SRM Stickers - Christine Meyer - #kraft #stickers #christmas #srmstickers

The 4 X 6 embossed kraft bags are the perfect size for holding one package of hot cocoa! I used the chevron design.  Punched Pieces and Take 2 Christmas stickers decorate the outside of those bags as well as the side edges of the big box above.

SRM Stickers - Christine Meyer - #kraft #stickers #christmas #srmstickers

Any variety of SRM's clear containers would work great for marshmallows but I opted for the A2 Card Box.  I decorated that with stickers from Say it With Stickers/Christmas and Live Life/Christmas.  I love that this project all began with this undecorated kraft box from SRM!  

It's little moments like this that help make special memories for the holidays!  I can't wait to see their eyes when they find it!

Embossed Bag Layout by Cathy H.

Hello from Cathy Harper.  I love creating layouts using SRM Kraft and Glassine bags.  They are perfect for adding journaling or just to add a bunch of fun embellishments, which is what I chose with this layout.

I used a Kraft 4x6 Embossed Chevron Bag and layered it behind my photos.  Then filled it with some fun bits from the paper collection.  The perfect finishing touch to my layout and the embossed bag was some Stone Twine.  I wrapped the twine around the bag a couple of times and tied a double bow. I then added a fun clear sticker from the Fall Sentiment set.  I love how SRM's clear stickers look like printed text on your pages.  Awesome for someone like me who can never stamp a sentiment straight!

There are so many sizes and patterns to choose from with SRM's Kraft and Glassine bags!  You can use them for so many things, the possibilities are endless.  And there are lots of different themes of Sticker Sentiments too.  Be sure to check them out! 

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you have a scrappy day!

Thanksgiving Table Decor by Shantaie

Ever since the first time I laid eyes on SRM's new clear triangle box, I have imagined a tee pee treat container and Thanksgiving is the perfect occasion for such a project. A beautiful seat place marker or an appetizer placed at each table setting to greet your guests. Holidays offer such wonderful opportunities to create the special touches that your family and friends will remember long after the plates are cleared and the turkey leftovers are gone.

SRM Stickers - Thanksgiving Table Decor by Shantaie - #srmstickers #stickers #thanksgiving #trinagle #clear box

 Punch a small hole at the top of the triangle with a hole punch (cropodile was used here) and thread a few strands of raffia through, tie in a loopy bow. add patterned paper along sides using the box measurements.  Add paper to the front and back if desired, and embellish with stamped leaves, a ribbon and some gold cording. Add a banner with a SRM fall sentiment and fill with treats of your choice.

Quick, functional, and fun, Thanksgiving tee pees made from triangle boxes!
 Happy fall y'all!

Soccer Team Treats by Lorena

Hi SRM crafty friends! It's Lorena with an idea to make quick treats for a soccer team. And when I say quick, I mean it. I find that basic when a project is meant to be mass produced! 

I chose soccer because it's the biggest sport both in my country, Spain, and also in the country where I'm posted right now, Bolivia. It's a big thing around here, I tell you. Much to my dismay. Why?  Because of my son. Well, he is terribly bad at soccer, so he needs as much encouraging he can get. And here's where team treats come into scene.  *wink*

SRM Stickers - Soccer Team Treats by Lorena - #soccer #pillowbox #kraft #srmstickers #sticker #twine

I started with a medium kraft pillow box. I adore these cuties! They're perfect for holding a bit of candy, enough for a pick me up after the game but not so much that the other kids parents will be mad at you, ha!

SRM Stickers - Soccer Team Treats by Lorena - #soccer #pillowbox #kraft #srmstickers #sticker #twine

I trimmed the sentiment from Say It With Stickers/Mini: Soccer, made it into a 4 line sentence and adhered it to the box. Then, I embellished it with a green scalloped border from We've Got Your Border: Halloween and a dotted line from Sticker Stitches: Black.

SRM Stickers - Soccer Team Treats by Lorena - #soccer #pillowbox #kraft #srmstickers #sticker #twine

The final touch was some SRM Twinery black and white twine and a ball also from Say It With Stickers/Mini: Soccer. I adhered it to a bit of cardstock, fussy cut the ball, punched it and tied it with twine.

See? I told you this was quick and easy. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Fancy Cards by Cassonda

Cassonda here today!  I've had some pretty awesome things done for me lately and it's time I show my appreciation. Today I'm sharing with you some cute "mini" cards I created with scraps of cardstock that were cut incorrectly. Never throw away...just make something else out of it. :) This thank you card is for a very special friend of mine and the love card, well, that will get tucked away in hubby's car. (shhhhh)

For the tall card, I sprayed the bottom portion with pink shimmer mist to give it some color (since it's for a girl). I used the Thank You Fancy Sentiment 

On the small card I used the Love Fancy Sentiment Sticker set.  On both cards I added a little bit of white doily peeking out from under the paper.

And on both cards I sewed on all buttons with a little bit of Shore Twinery

So the next time you need a quick project to show you appreciation to someone I hope you will grab for your scraps! Here's the pair of cards I created!  Enjoy!

Be sure to join us tomorrow for more SRM Sticker inspiration.  And be sure to share your SRM creations over on the SRM Flickr.  We have over 7000 posts which will provide you with even more inspiration!

Mini Birthday Box with Tags by Cathy H.

Hello from Cathy Harper!  I have a fun little box full of Birthday Tags to share with you today.  I created this little gift to add to a friend's Birthday Box.  It's a way for her to have Birthday tags to add to presents right at her fingertips.  I used SRM's Clear Rectangle Box to hold my tags and decorated it with Birthday Take 2 StickersBlack Sticker Stitches, and a medium teal Punched Piece.  I just adhered the stickers around the bottom of the box and added a bit of yellow washi tape for more color.  Next, I created a paper bow using my Silhouette Cameo and tied it together with Maraschino Baker's Twine and added the scalloped punch tag!

SRM Stickers Blog - by Cathy Harper - #stickers #birthday #box #cards

Adorable! Next up, I created all the little tags and envelopes to fill my box, again using my Silhouette Cameo.

SRM Stickers Blog - by Cathy Harper - #stickers #birthday #box #cards

I made a set of six tags to go inside, all using the same tag and envelope.  I just alternated patterned papers!  All of the tags are decorated with Birthday Take 2 stickers and Medium Scalloped Punched Pieces in different coordinating colors.

SRM Stickers Blog - by Cathy Harper - #stickers #birthday #box #cards

Once my tags were all tucked inside the mini envelopes, I added a button with a Maraschino Baker's Twine bow to each envelope! Before I filled the little box I added some yellow crinkle paper for a pop more color.  Now my friend has a stash of Birthday tags to add to her gifts.  

SRM Stickers Blog - by Cathy Harper - #stickers #birthday #box #cards

I love how this little gift turned out and I might even make her a set of Christmas Tags.  

SRM Stickers Blog - by Cathy Harper - #stickers #birthday #box #cards

Wouldn't it be fun to have a whole row of these little boxes, full of tags for all of your gift giving occasions?  Thanks for stopping by and be sure to come back again soon for lots more SRM inspiration!

Spooky Treat Box by Annette

Trick or Treat SRM Stickers Friends!
It's me, Annette Allen and today I'm playing with SRM's new Kraft Box which is a total treat!  I love that it's a blank canvas just waiting for me to embellish it to create a gift box or even a mixed media project! 

SRM Stickers - Spooky Treat Box by Annette - #kraft #box

First I wanted to add a little color to the background so I used my watercolors and splashed some orange, yellow and brown. Then used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out this spooky pattern.  Now to make it even more spooky I added a spooky spider from Stickers By the Dozen Trick or Treat to a white Punched Piece and a fun border from SRM's Halloween Border set.  That big, bold HALLOWEEN is a sticker too!

SRM Stickers - Spooky Treat Box by Annette - #kraft #box #halloween #stickers

To create this spooky banner on the outside edges I used: SRM's Stickers by the Dozen Spiders and Candy Corn Halloween BordersWe've Got Your Stickers Treats and Punched Pieces in white, black and orange.

SRM Stickers - Spooky Treat Box by Annette - #kraft #box #halloween #stickers

You thought I was done, right?
Well I had to put something inside. I used my Silhouette Cameo to made these fun mummy treat boxes and added sentiments from SRM's Stickers By the Dozen Halloween.

Yummy things come in small packages!

SRM Stickers - Spooky Treat Box by Annette - #kraft #box #halloween #stickers

Mini Calendar by Cassonda

Greetings fellow SRM Sticker fans!  Cassonda Tadlock here today.  Are you already thinking about the new year? I tend to plan things in "quarters" so I am already looking at plans for January and beyond.  I wanted to give my niece a little calendar book she can keep in the small pocket of her backpack to use at school. This "krafty" calendar is actually made from one of SRM's chevron embossed kraft bags.

Want to make one of these little cuties?  Here's how!  Using one of SRM's Embossed Chevron bags, I cut all the sides off of one of the kraft bags and then cut in half so you have 2 long strips. Accordion fold your strips so you have 6 squares on each strip. 

Place your mini calendar stickers on some pretty paper (The stickers are clear so the paper shows through!), cut with a trimmer and adhere to the accordion folded strips. (I adhered the back of June and July together so the calendar would be one long strip.)

Fold the calendar up, tie a ribbon around it and add one of the Year of Memories Calendar Sticker Tags. Place it inside a decorated glassine bag for a pretty gift presentation. I used the Valentine and Birthday Birdie Stickers to decorate the front of the glassine bag.

These would make such cute stocking stuffers for your friends! I plan on creating a bunch more before Christmas. I hope this also helps you get ready for the new year! 

Here's the embossed kraft bag that I used for the base of my calendar.

And here's the glassine bag that I tucked it into.  

So how many of these fun little calendars do you want to make?
