A Little Winter Inspiration

Hi! This week I am featuring the Let It Snow Suite in the Holiday Catalog!  I hope you enjoy it!

To kick it off, I have this adorable Kisses Gift Card Holder for you!

Gift Card Holder, Kisses, Snowmen, Let it Snow, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #Holiday2019

I truly fell in love with this suite in the Holiday Catalog and I believe you will, too!  Who couldn’t use a cute way to present a gift card!  (And a little chocolate!)

The snowmen are from the Let it Snow Designer Series Specialty Paper.  The sentiment and snowflakes are from the Snowman Season Stamp Set.  The beauty of this bundle – it comes complete with stamp set, punch, specialty paper, and embellishments!  So many uses for this suite with the upcoming holidays.

The base of this project measure 6 3/4 x 9 3/4″.  Here’s where to score:

On the 9 3/4″ side, score at 2 3/4″, 5 1/4″, 6 1/4″, 7 1/4″, 8 1/4″, and 9 1/4″

On the 6 3/4″ side, score at 1″ and 5 3/4″.

Cut off the sides from the top to the 5 1/4″ score line.

Cut off the two small bottom tabs.

Cut in on the 6 1/4, 7 1/4 and 8 1/4″ score lines.

Here’s a template to show you what your card stock should look like when you are done, and the placement of the Tear & Tape to make the box:

Team Stamp It – Valentine Hop

Hi! Today I am excited to be participating in the Team Stamp It Valentine’s Blog Hop!

I just love this little treat holder and think it is perfect for anyone!

Valentines, Treat Holder, Envelope Punch Board, Hedgehugs, Stampin' Up!, SU! Stampithop

He is carrying 5 Hershey Nuggets inside his pouch.  The original idea for a single nugget was created by Dawn Griffith and this 5 nugget version was designed by Deseree Krumm.

It is quick and easy to make using the Envelope Punch Board.

Cut your All My Love Designer Series Paper at 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″.

Line up one side at the 2″ mark on the punch board, punch and score.  Rotate the paper counterclockwise, and line up the score line with the little notch on the punch board to the left of the opening.  Punch and score.  Repeat the rotation and score for the remaining sides -always aligning the score line to the notch.

Here is my video – it is the second project – showing how to make this using the punch board.

Side note – if you liked the first project, you’ll  find details on it here.

The image is stamped from the Hedgehugs Stamp Set in Soft Suede ink.  The sentiment is from the exclusive stamp set in the January Paper Pumpkin and is stamped in Real Red ink.  A little heart is placed over the flower and was punched with the Cookie Cutter Builder punch from Real Red Cardstock.

Animal Love

Hi! As promised, I am back today with a cute Treat Holder featuring the Animal Outing Suite in the Annual Catalog.

Valentine, Animal Outing, Treat Holder. Stampin' Up!, SU!

Is this little file folder not the cutest?  I saw this idea a few years ago by Becky Roberts but hadn’t yet tried it.  So happy I remembered it!  These are very easy to make and can be done quickly.

The File Folder is 3″ x 5″, scored at 2 1/4″ and 2 1/2″ on the 5″ side.   A piece of Designer Series Paper 2 1/4″ x 3″ is also needed.  To see how to turn it into a folder, watch this video – it is the second project shared:

The animals are from the Animal Outing Stamp set and are colored with Stampin’ Blends.  The Rhino and Giraffe were stamped in Momento Tuxedo Black ink on a scrap of Whisper White card stock and die cut using the coordinating framelits.  Stampin’ Blends were used to color the animals – Smoky Slate both light and dark, Calypso Coral light and Pool Party light were used for the Rhino and bird while Daffodil Delight light and Crumb Cake light were used for the Giraffe.    You can order the stamps and dies as a bundle and save 10%!

No Adhesive Needed!

Hi!  A little spring cheer for you today with this No Adhesive Needed treat holder!

Hershey Kisses, Butterfly Gala, Gingham Gala, Occasions 2019, Stampin' Up!, SU!

I demonstrated how to make this cute box in last night’s Wednesday with Teresa Facebook Live.  It is the second project in this video:

The size of the Designer Series Paper is 4 1/2″ x 5″.

Score on the 4 1/2″ side at 1″ and 3 1/2″.

Score on the 5″ side at 1″, 2″, 3″, and 4″.

Then in the second and forth square on the top and bottom, score diagonally.

Here is the template with the score lines showing:

It is pretty easy to make.

The Butterfly is colored using sponge daubers and Highland Heather and Lemon Lime Twist ink.  (Ok, so I did use Glue Dots to adhere the butterfly to the ribbon)…  But no adhesive was used to make the box itself or to keep it closed!

The ribbon is from the Sale-A-Bration catalog and is FREE when you place a $50 (US, prior to S/H and tax) order in my on-line store.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project!

Trick-or-Treat Halloween Blog Hop

Hi! Welcome to the Team Stamp It Halloween Blog Hop!  You are sure to find tons of inspiration for Halloween Fright!

My project today is this adorable mini milk carton!

Halloween, Treat Holder, Mini Milk Carton, Stampin' Up!, SU! #stampitbloghop

Isn’t it adorable?  I love the Toil and Trouble Designer Series Paper – perfect for all your Halloween crafting!  In this project, I’ve paired the paper with the Seasonal Chums set in the Annual Catalog – don’t you love when you can use new products with existing ones already in your collection?

To make the Mini Milk Carton, you need a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/4″ piece of cardstock or Designer Series Paper.

  • Score on the 8 1/4″ side at 2″, 4″, 6″ and 8″.
  • Score on the 5 1/2″ side at 1 1/2″, 3 1/2″ and 5″.
  • Along the 5″ score line, make a tick mark at 1″ and 5″ along the 8 1/4″ side.
  • Use a ruler and a stylus to score diagonal lines between the 5″ and 3 1/2″ score lines from the 1″ tick mark to the lower left corner at the 3 1/2″ score line and the lower right corner at the 3 1/2″ score line.
  • Repeat above step for the 5″ tick mark.    See picture for clarity: (Dotted lines are score lines, solid lines are cut lines)

  • Cut off the lower right corner that is 1/4″ by 1 1/2″.  (Already removed in picture)
  • Create angle cuts on the top and bottom of the remaining part of the tab.
  • Cut up from the bottom to the 1 1/2″ score line at 2″, 4″ and 6″.
  • Fold on all score lines.
  • Place Tear & Tape along the tab and close the box.
  • Use Tear & Tape to seal the bottom.
  • Decorate as desired and use Baker’s Twine, Linen Thread or a Galvanized Clip to close the top of the box.

For the decorations, I used the pumpkins from Seasonal Chums.  It is stamped in Jet Black StaZon on Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  The stem is colored in Crumb Cake, the leaves in Old Olive and the face in Basic Black.

Here’s a closer view of the front and back:

On the sides, I die cut bats using the coordinating Seasonal Tag Framelits from Basic Black card stock and colored with Clear Wink of Stella:

Halloween, Seasonal Chums, Mini Milk Carton, Treat Holder, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #stampitbloghopI used one of the new Galvanized Clips to keep the top closed after filling with Halloween Treats such as Dove Milk Chocolate Caramels and Reese’s Peanutbutter Ghosts.   The sentiment is stamped in Basic Black ink on Crushed Curry cardstock and punched with the Classic Label punch.  Black solid Baker’s Twine ties the tag to the clip.

I just love how this turned out and will be making a few more to give out to family, friends and co-workers.

Throw Back Thursday – Halloween Style

Hi!  Today I am showcasing a treat pouch made using some retired Halloween Products.  I am working on some goodies for a craft fair and decided it would be good to use up some retired Designer Series Paper I had laying around.

Diaper Fold, Halloween Treat Pouch, Cookie Cutter Halloween, Stampin' Up! SU!

These little guys are from the Cookie Cutter Halloween Set from a year or two ago.  I loved this set – they are just adorable.  The diaper fold pouch uses a 6×6 piece of Designer Series Paper and is pretty easy to put together.  These little guys will hold a mini candy bar – perfect for giving coworkers, friends and neighbors.

Here’s a closer look:

Mini Ghiradelli Treat Holder

Hi!  Welcome back to the last day of Valentine Treat Holders!  I hope you have enjoyed this mini-series and are able to find a pattern for your Valentine Treats!

 

 

Ok, on to today’s project:

Chocolates, Treat Holder, Valentines, Tabs for Everything, Stampin' Up!, SU!

This cute little box can hold 3 Mini-Ghiradelli squares or 4 Hershey Kisses or 2 Dove Hearts!   For this holder, I used the Melon Mambo Card Stock for my box and decorated with the Painted With Love Specialty Designer Paper.  The hearts and sentiment are from the Tabs for Everything Stamp set.

Here is how the box is made:

  1. Score an 8 1/2″ x 5″ piece of cardstock at 2″ and 3″ on the 5″ side.
  2. Score at 2 “, 4″, 6″  and 8″ on the 8 1/2” side.
  3. Scallop punch the panels between the 2″ and 4″ score lines and the 6″ and 8″ score lines.
  4. Cut off the 2 corners on the 1/2″ end.
  5. Cut up on the score lines on the top and bottom.
  6. Score the 2 scallop panels at 1″ from the top of the scallop.
  7. Fold on all score lines.
  8. Use Fast Fuse Adhesive to adhere the tab to form the box shape as well as on the bottom flap to seal the bottom.
  9. Use ribbon to hold the 2 scallop tops together.
  10. Decorate the sides with 3/4″ x 1 3/4″ mats.
  11. Add sentiment and fill box with goodies.

Here is a picture of the template:

Mini Ghiradelli Treat Box Template, Templates, Patterns, valentines, Treat Holder, Stampin' Up!, SU!

Just an FYI, yesterday’s box and today’s box can be made from 1 sheet of 8 1/2″ x 11″ card stock.  This pattern requires 8 1/2″ x 5 and yesterday’s requires 8 1/2″ x 6.  So you can get 2 from 1 sheet!  Pretty cool!

Valentine Treats – Day 2

Hi!  Did you try yesterday’s Treat Holder?  What did you think?

Back again today with another Valentine Treat holder for you!

Valentines, Chocolates, Painted Love, Scallop Topper, Stampin' Up!, SU!This treat holder is perfect for holding a single Lindt Chocolate or a few Hershey Kisses.  Just the perfect little treat for someone sweet!

Here are the directions to make this:

  1. Score an 8 1/2″ x 6″ piece of card stock at 2″ and 4″ on the 6″ side
  2. Score at 3″ and 5 1/2″ on the 8 1/2″ side.
  3. Cut off all 4 corners
  4. Using the Scallop Tag Topper punch, punch the two long ends.
  5. Make a small mark on the 2 short ends at 1 1/4″
  6. Score from this mark to the corners on both small sides like this:Your card stock should now look like this:Scallop Topped Treat Box, Stampin' Up!, Treat Holder, Valentines, Pattern, Template
  7. Fold on all Score lines.  Apply Tear & Tape to one triangular flap on the short side to adhere the back scallop flap.
  8. Use ribbon to tie the front scallop flap and close the box.
  9. Decorate as desired.

For my box, I used Melon Mambo for the base and decorated with Designer Series Paper from the Painted With Love Specialty pack.  These pieces measure 1 3/4″ x 2 1/4″.

I then used the small scallop circle punch from the Occasions Catalog and adhered with dimensionals a Gold Foil heart created with the Lots to Love framelits.   You could add a sentiment to go over the heart or above or below if you’d like.   The Ribbon is the Blushing Bride double stitched ribbon.

Pretty quick to put together if you are looking to mass produce a treat.  If you need treats that are not food, try small erasers or stickers for children or a piece of jewelry for someone special.   Little notes telling the recipient what you love about them would also be sweet to tuck inside.

You’ll find all supplies to make this box in my on-line store!  Use Hostess Code: AWRFCDQY when placing your order to receive FREE Glitter & Enamel Epoxy Shapes ($50 order prior to S/H and tax placed by Feb 10) and this tutorial:
