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.

Merry Takeout

The Stampin' Up! gift bow die and expressions thinlits dies are all that's needed to turn a takeout box into adorable Christmas packaging.  I love the simplicity!

Holly Jolly Kisses

I love these little wooden spoons!  I've added a little washi tape to the handle and attached it to a small bag of Hershey Kisses.  It's a yummy, sweet treat. :)

Boxed Christmas Gift

The box #2 bigz die is the perfect size for holding two mini hand sanitizers and hand lotion.  Now I have a great little gift for a co-worker or friend. :)

Gingerbread Coffee Cup and Holder

I wish I could take credit for coming up with this fun holder for the mini coffee cups.  I can only take credit for how I decorated it.  I found the instructions on Sue Becker's website at  She has simple and easy to follow instructions.  Thanks for sharing Sue!

Elf Gift Card Holder

Isn't this cute?!  I was going for something completely different and this was my outcome! :) I made a gift card holder with my envelope maker and attached Andes mints for legs.  The shoes are made from the top note die.  I cut it into four even pieces by cutting through the middle, both directions.  I used the  1 1/4 circle punch to cut a notch in two of the pieces. The white piece on top of each shoe is the christmas tree from the holiday collection framelits.  I cut it in half, then cut a little from the top and bottom, and presto... fur for the shoes! So cute!! :)

Christmas Tree Box

Remember my piece of cake box turned piece of pumpkin pie?  Well now it's a Christmas tree! :)

Christmas Cheer

A little holiday cheer! The small Martinelli's sparkling white grape drinks are so darn cute! They make perfect gifts for Christmas, which in turn can be used for New Year's.  I've attached a little pouch with a mini Ghiradelli chocolate, for an added treat. I'd keep this for myself if I liked white grape juice. :)

Pumpkin Pie

I turned a piece of cake box into a piece of pumpkin pie!  If only my real homemade pumpkin pies turned out this well. :)

Thanksgiving Envelope

I wish I had enough time to make one of these envelopes for each place setting at our Thanksgiving dinner table.  I'd put a note in each one with the reason I'm thankful for that person.

Thanksgiving Sour Cream Container

I haven't made a sour cream container in a very long time.  They're easy to make as long as you have good strong adhesive.

Thanksgiving Gift Bag

I purchased the gift bag punch board. Each time I've used it I've done something wrong. :(  This bag looks cute, but it's not done the correct way. I'll keep trying...

Turkey Treat

I used my sizzix candy cup die along with the 2 3/8 and 1 3/4 scallop punches to make this tiny turkey.  The red thingy hanging from his nose (I don't know the technical name) is the stem off one of the pumpkins, in the fall fest framelits dies. He is so darn cute! :)

Grateful For You Trail Mix

I've seen a cute little trail mix quote, for harvest blessings, that would work perfectly with this little treat.  Now if only I can find it. :)

Gratitude Pillow Box

I love the look of pillow boxes and they're fun to decorate too. I made this one with the Thanksgiving holiday in mind. It would make a great place card for the dinner table.

Caramel Apple Witch Hat

I made this witch hat with the perfect pennants die.  It stands up with the help of a caramel apple sucker.  Yummy! 
Have a safe and happy Halloween.

Halloween M&M's

The mini M&M's come in an orange container, which is perfect for Halloween.  It only takes a little paper and a tag to make them a cute Halloween treat.

Halloween Coffins

I especially love this stamp because it works so well with my coffin box.  The vampire teeth are perfect too!

Pixy Broom

Let's face it... no one gets excited over one pixy stix.  However, if you turn it into a witch broom with a diamond bat, it suddenly becomes something to get excited about! :)

Witching Halloween Candy Bar

I decided I need to use my Tee Hee Hee stamp set before Halloween comes and goes. It's one of those sets I thought I had to have and now I just can't figure out how to use it. :(

Mummy Pocket

I made a little pocket to tuck my mummy into.  I think the kids will love this Halloween treat!

Owl Gift Card Holder

I have to say, I'm surprised owls are still so popular.  I made this one with an oval framelit and a few circle punches.  It's a gift card holder with a tag for a note.

Curvy Keepsake Spider

The curvy keepsake box seems to be a hit.  The ideas are endless, so here's another one. A spider and some web in a clear curvy box. Love it!

Mouse Trap Treat

I saw projects made with these mouse traps last year, but didn't get a chance to make one.  They're kinda gross, in a fun sort of way. :)  I have a package of Reese's Pieces tied to the bottom of mine.  A little gross and a little sweet make for a great Halloween treat.

Cauldron Box

Guess what I used to make this cauldron?  The labels collection framelits. Fun huh?!  A little snip off the top and bottom and it's a cauldron. Who knew? :)  The green drippy stuff is made with a Martha Stewart punch and the little greeting is from the tee-hee-hee stamp set in the new Stampin' Up! holiday catalog.
