Quick Gift Packaging: Polka Dot Gift Bags with Star Tags

Here's another quick gift I did for the teacher's 12 Days of Christmas. We love Cheryl's Buttercream Cookies, so I put a wrapped cookie inside a Polka Dot Gift Bag and added a quick tag created with die cut stars. I used the Star Framelits to create my tags, but you could also use the die cut stars in the Many Merry Stars kit!

Santa Half Sheet Treat Box Tutorial + New Weekly Deals

It's Day 10 in our 12 Days of Christmas for the kids' teachers. (See more 12 Days of Christmas projects.) According to our schedule, we were supposed to make ornaments, but the kids didn't get them done, so I whipped up these little treat boxes with peppermint candies.

I used the Half Sheet Treat Box template that I made up last winter. Grab a half sheet of cardstock and your Paper Trimmer or Simply Scored Tool and watch my video tutorial to learn how to make this box:

I used Real Red cardstock for the Santa box with a 3/4" wide belt and the Curvy Label Punch with Silver Glimmer Paper for the belt buckle. A 3/4" piece of black cardstock on top of the glimmer paper makes it look like the belt is looped through the buckle. I packaged the boxes in a Gussetted Cello Bag and tied it with some retired ribbon from my stash.

Are You a "No Contact" Customer?

In the last two months I have received an increasing number of "No Contact" orders from my Online Store. That means a customer has selected that they prefer not to be contacted by a demonstrator.

Stampin' Up! takes privacy very seriously and when a customer opts to have "no contact", that means that I don't even know their name! I can see the order summary, but in the place of a name and address, it simply says: "No Contact".

While I certainly respect that some people wish to shop anonymously, it makes me sad that I can not properly thank these stampers for supporting my business. I strive to offer good customer service, including sending thank you cards, make and takes kits for orders over $40, and free catalogs.

My fear is that many of these "No Contact" customers don't realize what they are opting OUT of. I have seen orders come through with the Hostess Code and it is clear that they expect to hear from me and get a make and take kit, but I have NO way of contacting them!

If you are reading this and you are a "No Contact" customers, you can change the settings in your customer profile in my Online Store. Email me at julie@the-davisons.com and I will send you step-by-step instructions to change this setting.

Thank you for supporting my business and for giving me the opportunity to service your stamping and shopping needs!

Snowman Fry Box

In my last post, I mentioned that the kids and I are doing 12 Days of Christmas gifts for their teachers. Each day is something small and cute. By itself, it's not much, but I hope these small acts will let them know how much they mean to us all year! On Friday, we gave them these snowman fry boxes. we were going to do Santa suits, but we found these on Pinterest and the kids wanted to do this instead. We used 1/2" Circle Punches for the mouth. The nose is hand cut and we had the googlie eyes in our craft box.

The Fry Box is so easy to assemble! You only need a half sheet of cardstock to die cut it. And it works for so many different occasions!

12 Days of Christmas Gifts for Teachers

I wanted to do something fun for the kids' teachers this year, so we are giving them small gifts every day for the 12 days before Christmas break. We're 7 days in and while I love the idea of spoiling  our teachers, I'm struggling to keep up! I haven't taken photos of all of the gifts because some days, I had to send them out the door within minutes of finishing! Here are a few gifts that we gave last week:
Stamp a Tag Kit with "Get Your Santa On" Gift Tag
Candle wrapped in Nordic Noel Designer Paper + Four Frames Tag
Notecard Envelope Pouch with Cocoa
Pin It!
Some of the gifts, like the cocoa packets, we made extras to get to the "specials" teachers (Art, Music, Gym). I know these little gifts are just small tokens, but hopefully the love comes through. I truly appreciate all of these people who spend their day with my children! I have a larger gift planned for the last day!

In the meantime, I hope to work ahead a little on Sunday so I won't have to do some much last minute scrambling! I'll share more pics of other gifts later this week!
