A Pop Of Something Good To Eat

Here's a fun little treat for a party. I rolled pattern paper into a cone and filled it with caramel corn. The tag is made with the new banner triple punch and embellished with a star from the star framelits and stamped with the num-num stamp set.

Glam Party Hat

This little glam party hat is so darn cute! I made a small box and placed it between two of the largest pennants I cut from the perfect pennants bigz die. I cut a 3/4 X 3 3/4 piece of cardstock and glued flower trim onto it, for the rim of the hat. It's so glamorous, I'm not sure what to put inside. :)

Grateful Gift Bag

I'm going to miss the chevron gift bags. This one isn't closed or standing the typical way, but why be typical? ;)

Thank You Coffee

Here's a fun way to give a gift card for coffee. This holder is made using a 3 X 11 piece of cardstock. I scored it at 4"', 6 1/2"' , 7 1/2", and 10".  I used the 2 3/8 scallop circle punch to create the spot for the mini cup, then I created a small pocket to hold the gift card, which measures 2 3/4 X 2 3/4.

Pioneer Day Celebration

In Utah, July 24 is a state holiday called Pioneer Day.  We carry over the red, white and blue theme from the 4th of July.  These are the treats I created for each of my family members in honor of the holiday.  I used the banner framelits to create a flag to place on top of my cello bag and the star framelits to create a star along with another small banner to hang off the drink.

Thank You Bow Box

Don't get me wrong, I like the gift box punch board, but I like having a lid on my boxes. It gives you a spot to place a big fun bow:)

Hello, Just For You

The decorative window gift boxes retired. :( I purchased a couple of packages, because I like the little round window on it. You can use Stazon ink to stamp on the window like I did. I turned this box into a cute gift box with a treat and a card.

Butterfly Treat Holder

I purchased the Lifestyle Crafts treat holder die and I'm so glad I did! The Stampin' Up! baker's box fits perfectly inside! I can hardly wait to give this as a gift. :)

Bag In A Box Purse

I haven't made a purse in a while and loved this version when I saw it on Pinterest, so I had to give it a try.  The 3 X 3 cards and envelopes fit it perfectly, but it has plenty of room for so many other options. It's so stinkin' cute!

Good Wishes Card Set

I've had the Happy Hello Simply Sent Kit for such a long time. I bought it to create a box out of one of the cards in the kit and finally got around to making one. Youtube has several videos on how to make it. I made 3 x 3 cards with the Painted Petals stamp set to put inside the box. I used the Envelope Liners Framelits to create a matching liner to put inside the 3 1/8 x 3 1/8 square envelopes. The bow was made with the large oval punch and the tag is stamped with the Lovely Amazing You stamp set. To bring it all together I trimmed the bottom with washi tape.

Bird Tote For You

I made this little tote with the Stampin' Up! Fry Box Bigz. You need two fry boxes because you remove the front part of each box and glue together the back pieces. The handle is made with the large oval punch.

Stars & Stripes Matchbox

Here's another little treat for the holiday. A matchbox with a clear cover and Hershey Nuggets wrapped in stars and stripes paper. The "enjoy" is from the mini treat bag thinlits.

Happy 4th Baker's Box

I'm lovin' the Bakers Box Thinlits! The box holds lots of treats and its fun to come up with different ways to decorate it. I used the Stars Framelits to create a small window, so you can see the red, white and blue treat inside.

Mini Uncle Sam Hat

This Uncle Sam hat is a mini coffee cup placed on a 2 3/4" red circle.  Stars and stripes glued around the cup, and a treat inside, make it perfect for the 4th of July.

Butterfly Kisses

It's been a while since I did anything with butterflies, so I thought I'd share this treat with  butterflies and chocolate.

Birthday Wishes Just For You Card

I used the new, You're So Sweet stamp set along with the Celebrate Today stamp set and Balloon Framelits to create this birthday card.

Thank You Candy

I dressed up a candy bar with some of the extra pieces I had on my workspace. Sometimes (actually most of the time) my workspace has a few too many extra pieces, however this time I'm glad I had them :)

Gum Cover

I stamped a cover for a package of gum with the Butterfly Basics stamp set. Then I used From The Garden and Handpicked Framelits, for a tag. The new watermelon wonder dotted lace ribbon gave it a pop of color.

Floral Birthday Treat Bag

You can't go wrong with the mini treat bag thinlit. There are so many great paper choices to create the bag.  A couple tags and ribbon make it perfect gift packaging.

Sweet Treat Cookie Jar

The You're So Sweet stamp set is the cutest! And one of the stamps from the Work of Art stamp set made a great background to go with it. It helped add just the right amount of color.

Painted Petals Tag Topper Card

Another card made with the painted petals stamp set. I found the instructions for this card, which uses the scalloped tag topper punch, on snippetsandpretties.blogspot.com. She has great instructions with pictures, so it's easy to follow.

Painted Petals Birthday Card

I'm so glad I got the painted petals stamp set before it retired. I wish  they would've kept it. I enjoyed seeing all the different projects everyone made with the set.
