St. Patrick's Box

These 2 X 2 boxes are so fun to decorate.  My green Christmas washi tape was perfect for my St. Patrick's day box. :)

EOS Sucker

I've been wanting to make this project for a long time. It's an EOS lip balm sucker!  You press a thumb tack onto the end of a sucker stick, this gives you a base to glue onto the lip balm. Wouldn't this make a fun addition to a birthday gift or great party favor?

A Hamburger Box For You

I thought I'd try the hamburger box die again. I'm  still not willing  to put it on my favorites list. It's a lot of awkward and confusing folding. I wish someone else would fold it and put it together for me, because once it's folded it's cute. :)

Valentine Basket


I made this treat holder with the new Stampin' Up! berry basket die.  I ran the die through my big shot one time instead of the two it takes to create the full size basket. I measured down one inch from the score line on the bottom of each side and cut, creating two identical pieces.  I glued the top closed before I placed the pink piece around it, then I glued one bottom piece over the other, this way it's sealed on top and bottom, but you have open sides and a one inch bottom for holding a treat. Mine is holding a small Hershey candy bar.

I can't get enough of the bow bulder punch! It adds the sweetest look to any project.

Heart Pouch

This little treat holder is made with the scallop envelope die, oval punch and bow builder punch. It's the perfect size for a Ghiradelli chocolate square.

Valentine Ornament

The new bow builder punch created the perfect size bow for the top of my Valentine ornament. The ornament is made with two heart treat cups and red gumballs. The heart frame is made with the heart punch and a heart framelit.

Love Ya Boxes

I'm sure you already knew three of the 2 x 2 tiny treat boxes fit perfectly inside the tag a bag gift box. It's something I just learned and I'm so excited! I designed this one for Valentine's Day with the Stacked With Love DSP, but imagine the possibilities!

Sour Cream Heart

You can make a sour cream container look like a heart by cutting two arches across the top.  I used the clip to keep the candy inside, instead of using glue.

S.W.A.K.

As I was finishing up and thinking to myself, this would be cute for a teenage girl, my teenage daughter walked in and said, "I'd like a gift like this!" Now I know what she'll be getting for Valentine's Day, with chocolate of course! ;)

Love Card

I prefer to make 3D projects over cards, as you can tell by my blog. Valentine's day is a definite card day, so I decided I needed one. :)  I used a heart embossing folder on the red paper and the new Stampin' Up! Hello Life stamp set for the sentiment and heart. It was quick and simple, just the way I like all my cards. ;)

Windowed Cracker

Another cracker! :)  I need to stop making these, but they are so fun and easy!  This one is much smaller and I used the artisan label punch to create a little window, so you can see the treat on the inside.

My Heart To Yours Treat Holder

Isn't this a fun little treat holder?  It's made with the envelope punch board and it's easy to make. The instructions can be found on Pootles.co.uk.  She is very talented and has some wonderful projects with great easy to follow videos.

Valentine Curvy Keepsake

I wanted a sneak peak into my Valentine box, so I used the heart from the hearts a flutter framelits to create a heart shape cut out.

Valentine Hand Sanitizer

I found this fun idea on Pinterest.  You need the two tags die to create the cute little topper.  It's a fun way to present a small hand sanitizer and makes a great Valentine gift!

Let It Snow

Our weather in Utah was unseasonably warm up until Christmas Day, when it finally snowed. As far as I'm concerned, I'd be fine if it didn't snow again until next Christmas :) But in the spirit of the season, I made a "let it snow" project ;)

Kisses and Confetti Cracker

There are several youtube videos explaining how to make these crackers. I thought it would be much harder, but they're simple and fun to make.  I filled mine with kisses (Hershey) and confetti to bring in the new year. :)

I placed a couple of holiday tea lights in a cello bag with a simple bag topper.  Now they make a great gift or party favor. Have a Merry Christmas!

Wondrous Wreath Jar

I finally used my Wondrous Wreath stamps and framelits.  It definitely takes time and practice, but the outcome is beautiful. A little washi tape and the wreath on a mason jar is a fun way to package a Christmas gift.

Joy Curvy Keepsake

I slightly altered the curvy keepsake box by folding down two of the sides instead of having all the pieces close on top.  I love how quick and easy this box comes together.
