Owl Fry Box

No stamping required on this owl fry box. I used circle framelits, circle punches, large oval punch and scallop circle punch. Think of all the fun things you can put inside.

Frankenstein Food Jar

This is what you get when you use green and black paper and turn the Sizzix food jar die upside down, a bewildered Frankie :) Because of my obsession with Halloween, I usually imagine everything as a Halloween project. I'm so excited to start making Halloween things!!!

Hello Desk Set

It's back to school time, so I created a quick and simple matching pen and notepad. I used a small package of sticky notes and made a cover with the scalloped tag topper punch. The hardest part of this project was putting a rolled piece of paper into the pen.

Birthday Pizza

I found a package of gummy candy, shaped like fries and hamburgers, at the grocery store. My original thought was to use them with the hamburger or fry box dies. Then I noticed it had a gummy pizza, so I used that instead. :)  It fit perfectly in my Sizzix shaker box die. Cute huh?! Of course a pizza needs a pizza cutter. I used a circle punch and word window punch for part of the cutter. The black handle is a random piece of paper I cut to size.

Summer...the perfect time for watermelon.  Even if it's made out of paper :) I used the circle framelits and petite purse die to make this treat holder.

Floral Frames Chocolate Box

This sweet little candy box is made using the largest flower in the floral frames collection framelits. It holds 3 Hershey Miniatures perfectly. I found the instructions on karteundkunst.blogspot.com. I believe it's written in German, but she has pictures, which are easy to follow. You'll find it in her November 2013 archives. Thanks for sharing Sabine.

Wonderful Life Card

I prefer to make 3d projects, but you always need cards. So for this card, I punched out a circle and held it in the middle of the card while I sponged around it with orange ink. I used the banners framelits, perfect pennants stamp set, petite petals punch, petite petal stamp set and the envelope punch board to make the matching envelope.

Tag Topper Notepad

Becky Roberts showed these cute little key ring notepads on her blog. I liked the idea and wanted to try my own. It's made with the scalloped tag topper punch and lined notecards, which are found with the school supplies. I used the hearts framelits to cut the heart in the center of the cover. The binder ring is wrapped with ribbon.

Be Happy Treats

I found these fun colored sandwich bags at Target. I cut the zip lock off the top and randomly stamped flowers on it with white Stazon ink, then I filled it with yellow gumballs and tied a little tag on it. Don't you think yellow is such a happy color?! :)

Coffee Cup Pillow Box

 I try to look at all my die cuts in different ways and this particular pillow box die cut, from sizzix, screamed coffee cup. It only needed a couple strips of paper across the top to make it happen. Too bad I don't drink coffee.

Fin-tastic Treat Cup

I found these little cups at the dollar store and new I could make something fun with them.  I filled one with goldfish snack crackers and used this fin-tastic stamp on top. Wouldn't it make a great treat to put in your child's lunch sack?

Matchbox Made By Me For You


I used the tag topper punch to make a belly band for my matchbox. The ribbon keeps is secure. The coral color with the polka dots is my favorite.

Candy Tray For You

Here's a different way to use the Stampin' Up! hamburger box die. I only used the bottom part of the box along with deco labels collection framelits and the beautiful wings embosslits. I love the way it displays my Hershey nuggets.

Birthday Party Favor

I tried to design this favor for a boy party. Love the blue and orange. I'm sure boys like chocolate, balloons, pixie sticks and silly straws as much as any girl :)

Star Spangled Candy Wrapper

The candy wrapper die makes great favors for a 4th of July picnic, party or barbecue. It has the look of something you want to "pop" open. ;)

Patriotic Mini Milk Carton

I used star pattern paper and dark kraft card stock to make this patriotic mini milk carton. After cutting one die out of each sheet of paper, I cut them in half then glued a piece from each together. A little red and white bakers twine, attached with a mini clothes pin, gives it the final patriotic touch.

Birthday Hamburger Box

My hamburger box has an individually wrapped hostess cupcake inside! It's a fun way to package a yummy birthday treat and I've included the utensil, so you can eat it immediately. :)

Gift Card Holder Just For You

I used a mini gift sack die to create this gift card holder. I suppose you can put a treat inside, instead of a gift card. :)

Father's Day Candy Wrapper


Here's a fun little treat for dad. I used the squares collection framelits to wrap a candy bar and a circle punch to expose the candy bar flavor. The ribbon may be a little more feminine than dad might like, but it's so cute. :)

Happy Day Card

I love white on white, it's simple and sophisticated. I haven't made a card in such a long time, so this was a nice change.

Circus Cart

I saw a couple versions of this idea on Pinterest. I added a few small embellishments to my version, but kept the original idea. It's made with several sizes of circle punches, the chalk talk framelits and chalk talk stamp set. It's the sweetest :)
