Welcome to the very first InKing Royalty Blog Hop. For our very first hop, we’re excited to share projects that showcase the fun of the holidays – from Halloween through Christmas, this certainly is the season to be jolly!
You may have started the Blog Hop here or may have hopped over from Brian King atStamp with Brian. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next. If you get off track at any point during the blog hop, there’s a complete list of participants at the end of this post.
25 Days of Excitement and Wonder!
I have always loved Advent Calendars, and we always have at least two in our home every December. This year we’ll definitely have 3, because the Tiny Treat Boxes and the 25 Days stamp set are too cute to leave out!
TIPS & TRICKS
Tiny Treat Boxes. These boxes are a steal no matter what you want to use them for! Wedding favors, party treats, home décor, a surprise in a lunch box or briefcase–any time you want to give a little something special, these adorable boxes are just the thing! And for this Advent Calendar, these sturdy boxes can be flattened for storage and reused again the following year!
Glimmer Paper. This calendar really shines thanks to the Silver Glimmer Paper. The Stampin’ Up! Glimmer Paper is heavy duty, non-flaking (my shorthand for “glitter doesn’t fall off of your project every time it bumps into something”) and can take any project to the next level of Wow! It can be punched, die cut, colored and touched in addition to the normal activities of being cut with a paper cutter or scissors. When using adhesive on the back of the paper, I recommend the Multipurpose Liquid Glue. When adhering something to the front of the glitter paper, I recommend our Glue Dots®. And, for a little lift, Stampin’ Dimensionals work well on both sides of the Glimmer Paper.
Dazzling Details. To add some extra bling to any project, reach for the Dazzling Details. Here I used the Silver Sparkle to coordinate with the Silver Glimmer Paper. Dazzling Details is easy to apply; simply squeeze the bottle and dispense it in dots, lines or designs.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Candy Ford at StampCandy. You certainly won’t want to miss any of these projects.
