Treat Box from Mrs. Santa

I loved making these darling treat boxes for my team this year. I used the Stampin Up Acetate Card boxes and simply cut them in half (while they were flat) at 3" with my paper trimmer. These remind me of the old cassette tape boxes, way back in the day.

I used the Signs of Santa stamp set and dies. The dies are sold out but the stamp set is still available until the end of the month (at least for now)

I measured the box to get the size to cut the poppy parade cardstock. The box is 41/2" x 41/2" then I scored at 3" and 3 1/2" so that it slide into the box and had a little flap.

I also used some garden green cardstock embossed with the Maps Etc. emboss folder. The circles were cut with the Layering Circle Framelits dies.

Aren't they just so cute? I used velcro to hold the flap closed. Do you want to see what I put inside?

Found these Christmas Kit Kats that fit perfectly inside. I also stuffed some metallic pearls and peppermint candy inside for my team members.

I made lots to hand out as small gifts to friends and family as well. These are great for gift cards and lottery tickets too!

I will definitely be making these again for other holidays and occasions. They are so much fun to make and look so darn cute!

Valentine and a Christmas Card in "lights"

I'm sharing a sweet valentine card that we made at Card Class recently. Its made with the "Making Everyday Bright" stamp set and Christmas Bulb punch.

IMG_7321

I used the new petal pink cardstock as well as Stampin' Blends markers in petal pink, flirty flamingo and lovely lipstick. I colored the bulbs in with the lighter of the petal pink and flirty flamingo and shaded with the darker of each color. The tiny hearts are colored with the lovely lipstick Stampin' Blends.

IMG_7324

I punched out the petal pink bulb with the Christmas Bulb builder punch and popped it up with a mini dimensional.

IMG_7325

Here, you can see that I added the light rays in blushing bride ink, under the bulbs.

IMG_7322

A sweet and simple sentiment is stamped inside.

IMG_7320

I love the simplicity of this card and the short and sweet message for Valentines day.

This set will retire soon, so if you like it, get it before the end of December!

I also made a similar card at one of my classes, using the "Making Christmas Bright" stamp set (which coordinates with the Making Everyday Bright stamp set, above) and the Christmas Bulb punch. This set can be bundled with the punch for a 10% discount. This is a bright and cheery Christmas card.

The background is stamped with the Buffalo Plaid background stamp in call me clover ink, onto call me clover cardstock. The card is granny apple green. The bulbs are stamped in lovely lipstick and mango melody inks.

IMG_7328

I really enjoyed designing and stamping these fun cards. One, soft and sweet the other bright and bold. Both adorable!

Both sets and the punch will retire soon. Get yours soon, if you don't have it already!

Until the next time...

Tiny Favors- Acetate Treat Boxes

I made several of these cute little favor/treat boxes for both, the On Stage Stampin Up Convention, and my Team Christmas Party attendees.

I used the adorable, Nothing Sweeter stamp set and framelit dies for all of the treat boxes.

These are the cute little boxes that I made for my team Christmas Party favors.

IMG_6121

The call me clover cardstock insert is cut at 2"x4" and the 2018-2019 In Color Designer paper (lovely lipstick) is cut at 1 3/4" x 3 3/4". I simply slid it into the front of the box and closed the lid. The tree outline was stamped in call me clover ink and the tree was stamped in the same color, but stamped off on scratch paper first.

IMG_6122

I filled the boxes with big peppermint M&M's and tied a shaded spruce colored ribbon around the cardstock- which can be used later as a bookmark as well!

IMG_6123

These are so quick and easy to make. The acetate boxes are 2"x2" and come in packs of 16. Perfect size for small treats or even candles and jewelry!

IMG_6125

I made the heart boxes to pass out to special Stampin Up demonstrator friends at the Convention last month.

IMG_6128

These were made with the same stamp set and dies- Nothing Sweeter bundle, and the same designer series paper. The silver paper is the Galvanized Metallic paper from the Holiday Catalog and the ribbon is the Black glittered organdy ribbon from the same catalog.

IMG_6127

The ink is lovely lipstick and stamped off in the same way as I did the tree above.

IMG_6948

I also made boxes with the Candy Cane Season bundle that I gave out at my Card Class this month. I don't have a photo, but I will take one and post it later.

These are such great little extras to give out or use as favors on a holiday table. I hope you'll give them a try!

Thanks for stopping by.

Until the next time...

How to: Clothes Pin Wreath with Stampin Up designer paper

I have a grab bag gift exchange every year at my team Christmas Party. Each year, the gift I make always uses stamping or Stampin Up products in some way. This year I made the coolest wreath using clothes pins and a wire wreath that I purchased at Wal Mart.

IMG_7101

This is what I bought: The wire wreath is 12" and I used 60 clothes pins to construct the wreath.

IMG_7098

I recommend measuring the clothespins, as they may be a different size than mine. I used standard sized clothes pins. Once you measure them, cut 10 each of 6 different patterns of designer paper. I used the Stampin Up Festive Farmhouse designer paper from the Holiday Catalog.

IMG_7097

I attached the strips of paper with our Multi-Purpose glue, using the flat end and just brushing it along the clothespin. As you can see, I attached all the clothespins to the wreath, first. I used a thin piece of ribbon to tie on the back of the wire wreath, to hang. The cherry cobbler ribbon was attached with hot glue.

IMG_7100

I love how it turned out! Jackie was the recipient of my grab bag and she loved it as well!

IMG_7225

This is a pretty simple to do project for anyone on your Christmas list. I hope you have a chance to give it a try!
