October Customer Thank You Gifts

Hello, Crafters.

Earlier this morning I uploaded my video which shows how to make this very stylish gift box, but it's the recipients of my boxes that makes this project special. 

I shall be sending one of these boxes to all my customers who shop in my 24/7 online Stampin' Up! shop during October 2017.

Inside the box I have inserted a divider. 

On one side of the divider will be a bar of chcocolate, and in the narrow section there will be a pen. 
The pen will be one of my JanBCards promotional pens, but this pen is extra-special because when the pen is retracted, the end of the pen is a stylus. 

It can be used on electronic devices like mobile phones and tablets, and is so much easier than using fingers for typing! 

When my customers receive their Thank You gift, they can re-use the box as a gift box, or they could re-gift the gift, if that's what they'd like to do. 
This Thank You gift is as well as the Hostess gift I'll also be sending to my customers as part of my monthly hostess club! 

With the exception of the ribbons, the products I've used to decorate the box are from the Year of Cheer Suite of Products.

I started with the Foil Snowflakes, which comein a pack of twelve gold and 12 silver.

I stamped a snowflake design from the Cheers to the Year Stamp Set on a piece of Whisper White Cardstock and die cut it using the Stitched Shapes dies.

Then I used some cord or Baker's Twine to adhere one of the Year of Cheer Embellishments to hang down below the ribbon. 

The ribbon I used on the two Cherry Cobbler (red) boxes shown here is a retired ribbon, but the black and Old Olive Ribbons shown on the other two boxes are both current. 
I have also used only current Designed Series Paper designs!

This morning I have another class, but I don't have any preparation to do as I made sure it was all set up and ready after yesterday's class.

I hope you have a happy Sunday, and until tomorrow, happy crafting.
