Mini Birthday Burger Box

Isn't this mini hamburger box so cute?! I found the instructions on kreativersum.com. The instructions are in German but she does such a great job with her pictures, it's easy to understand. This die hasn't been one of my favorites, so I was happy to find another way to use it.

Loveliest Person Gift Bag

This is another project made with the All About Everything stamp set in the April Paper Pumpkin.  I'm having fun with the stamps and can think of many ways to use them. However, I'm still struggling with an alternative idea for the wreath.

Heart Popcorn Box

Look closely, I die cut a heart on the corner of my popcorn box. You'd have to put your treat in a cello bag, but it would make a cute presentation.

Birthday Balloon Treat

Here's a fun idea for a birthday treat or party favor. I made a topper for my cello bag using the circle card thinlit and balloon framelits. This was a fun, simple project.

Happy Spring Card

This is the first project I made with my April 2016 Paper Pumpkin.  I love the stamps in this set.  The wreath isn't something I'd use, but I know someone will come up with an alternative idea I can use! :)

Cutie Pie Celebration

I wanted a birthday box with a bit of sophistication. So, for this project I used the Secret Garden stamp set with the Cutie Pie thinlits and got just the result I was looking for.

A Tweet Clothespin

I created a small bag to hold a clothespin, which is simply covered with washi tape and a bird I made using the bird builder punch. Wouldn't this be the sweetest way to hang your clothes out on a line to dry? :)

Birthday Bike

I've been looking for a bicycle die for a while. When I found the Sizzix, Whimsy & Delight by Brenda Walton, I had to have it! The set contains 14 dies, which are all cute, but I love, love, love the bike! I can hardly wait to create more projects with it!

Candy Container

Wouldn't this be a great party favor?! I put chocolate candies inside a quarter coin container, I purchased at Hobby Lobby, then I used scrap paper to embellish it. The hardest part was finding the small candy to put inside. ;)

Blue Polka Dot Tote

I took a Sizzix bigz die I have and modified it a bit because I wanted a smaller version of the original. The die is called, Bag with handle and flap. I created the flower with the scallop circle punch then added a couple of tickets and tulle. I love how it looks!

Surprise Box

I found the instructions for this box on pootles.co.uk. It's made with a 6 X 6 sheet of paper. It's so easy to make. Thank you Sam for sharing the box instructions.

Butterfly Box Cards

More butterflies. :) I used the bitty box and envelope die to create a boxed gift card set. Oh, I almost forgot the tasty treat I tucked inside...a Ghirardelli chocolate square.

Hello Butterfly Card

 Yay it's spring! The weather in Utah isn't acting like spring, so I'm hoping to nudge it a little by creating spring like cards. :) I think butterflies say spring, don't you? Hello Spring!

Easter Tea

A small scalloped envelope makes a cute holder for a tea bag.  And a tea cup makes a cute holder for an Easter chick! :) Peep! Happy Easter!

Easter Bunny Keepsake

This is a version of the lunch bag bunnies I made a couple of years ago. It's basically a strip of wrapping paper, wrapped around a curvy keepsake box, filled with goodies. Hey, this can be given to a guy! Yay, I made something kinda masculine! :)

Easter Basket

This is so stinkin' cute! I made it using the berry basket bigz, oval collection framelits, bow builder and circle punches. My favorite part is the gold bow. It gives it a little glam! I hope I can find the perfect "glam" treat to put inside. :)

Bunny Bag

Here's another use for the polka dot cello bags. I wanted it to look like a bunny, so after filling it halfway with candy, I split the remainder of the bag down the center to create ears.

Cello Cone Carrot

The polka dot cone cello bags in the Occasions catalog are the perfect carrot shape, so that's what I made. :)  I used my fringe scissors and a strip of green paper to create the top of my carrot. I finished it off with a little ribbon and tag.

Leprechaun Hat

I just love this little Leprechaun hat! I made it with a mini coffe cup and a 3" circle. The buckle is a made with black ribbon, 1/2" and 1" square punches. Now I need to fill it with a green treat. :)

Eggstra Spectacular Treat

Stampin' Up! sold a "Season of Sweets Designer Kit" a while back. These cute little pouches were part of the kit. I used the bow from the cutie pie thinlits and the handpicked framelits to create an Easter tag, then filled it with Reese's Pieces Eggs. I can't decide if I should make them for my Easter table favors, tuck them in our Easter baskets or give them to co-workers. :)

Bunny Box

I created this box with an 8 x 8 sheet of cardstock and my gift box punch board.  I closed the top with ribbon to create ears.  I wish I had pink wired ribbon, it would've been easier to shape the ears, but he's still darn cute. :)

Scalloped Chick

The body of this chick is made from the circle collection framelits and the wings are from a scallop circle punch. I snipped a petal from the flower medallion punch to create the beak. The eyes are from the owl builder punch. The ribbon is sweet little edition and helps keep the treat snug inside.

Cutie Pie Carrot

I used the Cutie Pie thinlits to make this carrot. This will make a "sweet" Easter gift.

Shamrock Box

 I made this box months ago and set it aside until I knew what I wanted to do with it. If I remember right, I found the instructions on Pinterest. Unfortunately, I can't remember so I can't give that person credit :(  It's made with a card from one of my Paper Pumpkin kits. Due to the green stripes, I decided it would make a great St. Patrick's day project, and it did.

Chocolate Bunny

I specifically chose blue paper to make a guy friendly treat, then I went and stuck a bow on it (I couldn't resist), now I'm thinkin' maybe not so guy friendly. What do you think? It's soooo hard to make things for guys.  Anyway, I made this little bunny with a heart, small oval, 3/4 circle and bow builder punch. It's a fun way to make a small Hershey candy bar extra special for Easter.
