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 :)

Flower Folds Cupcake

Another use for the flower folds die...a cupcake! The little frosting on top was made with coffe filters and a scallop punch. This project required lots of trial, error and patience. :)

Pillow Box Gift Set

This would make a great teacher gift. It has gift tags with a matching pen and paper clip inside.

Make A Wish Gift Bag

I tried a closure I haven't tried before. It's elastic cord, tied and stretched around a brad. The bag is tall and thin, which is also a little different for me. It's always fun to try new things. ;)

Birthday Banner Gift Box

 I love how bright and cheerful this box looks. I used a scoreboard, chalk talk framelits, that's the ticket stamp set and the ticket punch to create it.

An Apple For Teacher

School is almost out and everyone is thinking about teacher gifts. Here's a fun way to package your teacher's gift. Create a red box and turn it into an apple.

Butterfly Clip

I haven't quite decided what to clip my butterfly too, so ignore the boring bag it's on. I used a piece of washi tape on a clothes pin, a small piece of wire and a butterfly die to create this clip. I'll make sure to attach it to something more fun, when I give it away. :)

Candy Drawer

This candy drawer is made out of chipboard. I think it's the first project I've made using chipboard. I like how substantial it looks. It's a gift that can probably withstand the test of time better than one made with cardstock. However, because of my love for paper crafts, I'd gladly accept and treasure either one. :)

Flower Gift Bag

I made this bag out of an envelope, then used the scalloped tag topper punch to create a wrap.  A couple of flower punches on top of a small strip of silver glimmer paper makes it pop.
