Holly Berry Box

Here's a sweet little box for a sweet little gift. It's a 2 X 2 box covered in merry moments designer series paper. I used the large oval punch and a small circle punch to create the holly. The "berry"  is the petite petals punch.

Acorny Thanksgiving

I love, love, love the Acorny Thank You stamp set and Acorn Builder punch.  I hope I can figure out how to use it on a Christmas project or two, because I'm not ready to put it away. :)

Grateful Tote

I made this little tote with the petite purse bigz. It's a cute favor for girls, not so much for guys. :)

Thankful Treat

I cut maple leafs and attached them to individual caramel candies. It makes the treat extra special and looks festive too. :)

Noel Triangle Box

Yay, my November Paper Pumpkin arrived! This kit makes 2 different styles of the cutest Christmas cards. But you know me...I prefer making 3D projects over cards! So, I made a triangle box with one of the cards and embellished it with the other items in the kit. I'll probably make another 3D project with this kit, but I think I'll make the Christmas cards too. :)

Nuts About You Jar

I found this little jar at Target in the dollar section. It only took a small tag to decorate it and a little trail mix to fill it. :)

Thankful Pillow Box

I used the square pillow box thinlit for this project. I know I'll get lots of use out of this thinlit. :) This project is cute for Thanksgiving, but with holiday paper and a new tag, it can be transformed into a cute Christmas package too.

Thankful Cornstalk

The inspiration for this unique project came from Connie Babbert.  She made a darling one with M&M's, mine has Reese's Pieces, and hers was made with cardstock, but I decided to use a paper sack because it was more pliable. Thanks for the ingenious idea Connie!

Blissful Bouquet Treat

I made another cute project with my Blissful Bouquet Paper Pumpkin. The envelopes don't have to be used just for the cards. :) I used chalk to color my flowers after stamping and cutting them out. The gold accents that come in the paper pumpkin are perfect because gold seems to be the new trendy color.

Little Christmas Bag

I had to make this gift bag after watching the Stampin Up! "gift bag topper" video, on YouTube. It's made with the gift bag punch board. My favorite part is the clever way the video teaches how to keep the top flap closed by tucking it behind the sentiment.

Thankful Fry Box

With just the right gift inside, this would make a great favor for Thanksgiving.

Envelope Liner Scarecrow

This scarecrow turned out much cuter than I imagined. It's basically a pocket made with the smallest envelope liner framelit. The thin strip of striped paper makes the hat look slightly tipped. The notch in the top of the hat gives it a little character and makes it easy to get to the treat. I don't use my bird builder punch often so I was excited to use it on this.

Blissful Acorny Thanks

Here's a card I made with the Blissful Bouquet Paper Pumpkin. I can't get enough of the acorn builder punch and wanted to use it too. Stay tuned for more projects because this paper pumpkin is very versatile.

Eat If You Dare

Another project with the clip on witch hat.  Look how cute it looks clipped to a pumpkin!  I wrapped a box of Reese's Pieces with pattern paper and used a few of the items from my September Paper Pumpkin, which I'm still lovin'!  This would make a great gift for a co-worker.

Blissful Bouquet Gift

Here are the first projects I made with my October Paper Pumpkin, Blissful Bouquet. I created a gift sack with one of the envelopes and a matching card to go with it. The stamps and accessories in this paper pumpkin are perfect for feminine projects.

Happy Halloween Baker's Box

Here's a quick and easy treat box for Halloween.  The baker's box, one single stamp and a little ribbon.

Eat Me Bat Jar

For this project I used the straw and a couple stamps from my September Paper Pumpkin along with the 2" circle punch for the moon and the cupcake builder punch for the cloud. The bat is a retired punch.

Best Witches Keepsake

A witch hat and curvy keepsake box thinlit create a cute Halloween treat holder.

So Sweet Gift Bag

I'm trying to make projects with my September Paper Pumpkin before my October Paper Pumpkin arrives, which should be any day now. I loved this kit and I'm so excited for the next one!

Candy Coffin

I wrapped a couple of Hershey candy bars with strips of paper to create a mummy. It's a perfect fit for my coffin.

Halloween Take Out Box

The inspiration for this came from Chic n Scratch, 12 weeks of Halloween.  She has such fun ideas.  I made another one of those fun witch hat clips to put on the front and hold the spider web in place.  The handle is held in place with a bow on each side, made from the bow builder punch.

Skull Candy

I folded down the sides of the berry basket bigz die, and being in the Halloween spirit, thought it looked something like a skeleton.  I know, weird huh? But, look at it with the skull on top. It definitely says skeleton. :)

Bat Basket

How fun is this guy?!  I made a berry basket, then used the oval framelits and a circle punch to create wings for him.  He'll make a great addition to my Halloween decor.

Cast-A-Spell Pillow Box

 I could hardly wait to get the new Stampin' Up! square pillow box.  I really like the size and it's easy to put together.  I used one of the squares included with the thinlits to create a window, then placed a cello bag inside.  I used the spiral flower die to create a coordinating flower to place on top the ribbons.  You'll notice the majority of my Halloween projects are made with Stampin' Up! discontinued paper, because I still love it and I need to use up my stash. :)
