My Hostess Gift for November and December

For many people, the Holiday Season is Party Season. While you may be thinking about Thanksgiving family gatherings and Christmas and New Year's Parties, there is a good reason for you to be thinking about hosting a Stampin'UP! "party".

Earn and extra $35 during Nov and Dec when you host a qualifying partyStampin'UP! has a really great deal for Hostesses for November and December. Between now and Dec 15th, if your party has sales of at least $350 you will earn an extra $35 of FREE merchandise.
Hostess Gift made with the Big Shot Matchbox DieHand-Made Candy Gift Box: I have a gift for you too!  In addition to all the Hostess Benefits from Stampin'UP!, anyone who has a party with me during November and December will receive this Hand Made Candy Gift Box. You can keep it for yourself or use it as a gift for someone else. In fact, when you GO to someone's party, do you take them a Hostess Gift?  Imagine your friends receiving this and imagine their amazement when you tell them you made it yourself!

Hostess Gift made with the Big Shot Matchbox DieThis box is really easy to make! We did this at the November Big Shot Class.  Monday's post had a group photo of the class projects. To make this project we made 4 match boxes using Cherry Cobbler and the Match Box Die (#114890).

We decorated nuggets and Rolos with designer paper and put 4 decorated nuggets into 2 of the drawers and 6 decorated Rolos into the other 2 drawers. Cut strips 1-1/2" by 2-1/4" for the nuggets and use a 3/4" circle punch (#119873) for the Rolos. It fits the wide end of the Rolos.

We laid the drawers in the patter you see in the photo (there will be a small square in the middle between all the drawers). We used a piece of 4x4 cherry cobbler paper for the bottom and a decorated piece of 4x4 paper for the top. I think the 1-1/4" Striped Grosgrain ribbon looks especially nice here. We used the black (#115615) but Stampin'UP! has 11 different colors of this ribbon (page 195 of the catalog which you can view online) Super Easy Project!
