A Little Treat

Hi! Welcome to the Team Stamp It September Blog Hop!   This month we are featuring Halloween projects!  I am excited to share this little treat with you featuring products from the August-Dec Mini Catalog.

Halloween, Treat Holders, Magin In the Night, Little Treat Box, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020AugDecMini

I know, you were probably expecting a candy holder, but I decided to go with something a little different.  I’ll still be packaging up candy for the little ones, but thought some of my friends would appreciate these.

We’ll start with the Chapstick holder – this is a take on the one shown in August-December Mini Catalog on page 52.   Since I didn’t have the Magic in the Night bundle, I changed it up a bit.  My die cut is made using Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  The Designer Series Paper is Magic in the Night.  I only made one slit in the middle to hold the Chapstick since my die is a bit smaller than the one used in the catalog.  The sentiment, tag and spider come from the Little Treats Bundle in the August-December Catalog.  I used Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzleberry Markers to color the sentiment.  I did use the 1 1/2″ Mesh Ribbon to tie around the Chapstick – I love this ribbon – so fun and perfect for that spidery web.  For the tag, tho, I went with the 3/8″ Glittered Organdy ribbon from the Annual Catalog.

Now, what is hiding inside the box on the left?  Well, let’s open it and see!

Halloween, Magic in the Night, Treat Holder, PocketBac Holder, Stampin' Up!, SU! #stampithalloweenhop, #2020AugDecMini

Yes, tucked inside is a Pocket Bac hand sanitizer!  How cute is this?  And, let me tell you, very easy to make.

The box is Rich Razzleberry measuring 2 1/4″ by 10 1/2″.  Score on the 10 1/2″ side at 2″, 3″, 6″, 7″, 9″ and 10″.  Using the smallest Oval in the Stitched Shapes die set, cut a hole in between the 9″ and 10″ score lines.

It should look like this:

PocketBac Template

Fold on all the score lines with a bone folder to get crisp edges and then lay flat.  Fold up on the 10″ score line (so it is covering part of the oval) and place a piece of Tear and Tape on this 1/2″ edge.  Keeping this edge folded, fold up on the 7″ score line and adhere the tab to the back of the box.  That’s all there is to it.  Decorate the front as desired.  You’ll  slide the PocketBac in through the side and pop the top of it through the Oval.  The two pieces of Designer Series paper covering the top and bottom measure 2″ x 1 3/4″.  I used the same spider, tag and ribbon from the Chapstick to decorate the box.  The tag is  attached by placing dimensionals on the bottom of the box right below the lid – allowing you to tuck the lid behind the tag to keep it closed.

What do you think?  I hope my friends like them!

….and the Hive

Hi!  Back today with another project featuring the Honey Bee Suite!  This time, it is paired with the Mini Curvy Keepsake Box!

Bees, Hive, Mini Curvy Keepsake, Honey Bee, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020Occasions

Aren’t these adorable?  I got this idea from Demonstrator Doris Pichler and just had to make some!  The hive fits perfectly on the sides of the Mini Curvy Keepsake Box!  Cute, right?

Just stamp the hive on all 4 sides of the box before you assemble!  The big bee on top is cut in half and attached with a glue dot on each side of the handle so that the recipient can still open the box.

The hive is stamped with Crushed Curry ink.  The bees are stamped with Memento Black Ink and colored with the Daffodil Delight Dark Stampin’ Blend.  Three Hershey Nuggets or 5 Hershey Kisses fit inside.  I am sure Bit ‘o Honeys will fit as well, but I didn’t have any on hand.

Oh, and yes, the Mini Curvy Keepsake Dies – which debuted in the Holiday Catalog ARE STILL available for purchase!  Sweet, right?!

Just click on the product below to order your own set!

Don’t forget, a $50 purchase (prior to S/H and tax) earns you a FREE Sale-A-Bration item – like the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper.

I Am Over The Moon

to be back!  Sorry for the hiatus, but life was a bit crazy over the summer and I had to take a break from blogging.

Have you seen these cows? I am also Over the Moon for them!!  They are just adorable and so fun to play with!  Here’s a cute treat holder – thank you Kim Quade of Kim Plays with Paper for the adorable idea!

Treat Holder, Over the Moon, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2019annualcatalog

And these Cow Tail candies are the perfect treat to go with this adorable guy!  The cow is stamped in Jet Black StaZon ink and the spots are colored with a Basic Black Marker.  To go with the candy, I added Pumpkin Pie for his bell, tail and the little tuft of hair on the top of his head.

The sentiment is stamped in Pumpkin Pie ink on Whisper White card stock and punched with the Classic Label punch.  This is layered on Pumpkin Pie cardstock.   The topper itself is a 3 x 4 1/4″ piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock scored at 2 1/8″ and folded in half.

The treats are placed in a 3″ x 6″ Gusseted Cellophane bag.   These little guys are headed to a craft fair next weekend.
