Easter Butterfly Gift Card Holder

Here’s a fun way to give a gift card for Easter. I used the Stampin’ Up!, Ovals Framelits to create the egg.  The slots to hold the card were created with dies from their Lots To Love Box Framelits.  The tag and its little butterfly brought it all together. ๐Ÿฆ‹

Congrats Glassine Bag Turned Envelope

I used a glassine bag to create a money envelope.  I started by scalloping the top of the bag with a die from the Stampin’ Up!, Seasonal Layers Thinlits.  The bag is folded in half to create the envelope. To keep it closed I added a belly band with fun, colorful butterflies and a congrats sentiment.  

Easter Egg Card

Before I placed the eggs, I sponged yellow ink on the card.   It sure did make them stand out.  Love this technique, I’ll have to try it again soon.

Welcome Baby Box

I used the Gift Box Punch Board to create a 2.5” x 2.5” box in pink for a baby. The little diaper pins are adorable and added just the right touch.

St. Paddy’s Day Envelope

☘️ Irish You A Happy St. Patty’s Day! ☘️

Birthday Takeout

Don’t you think the Stampin’ Up!, Takeout Thinlits Dies make the sweetest tiny box? It’s fun to embellish and doesn’t take much to fill.  I created a flower with the Stampin’ Up!, pansy and scallop circle punch to top this box. 

Why Hello There Card

Random pieces in the same colors came together to create this card. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Happy Easter Box

I turned a simple, little box into a quick gift.  Add a small Easter treat and it’s ready to give. 


Isn’t this little guy cute?  I used the smallest die in the Stampin’ Up! Envelope Liner Framelits to create a pouch, which is the face and hat of the leprechaun.  The beard is the Sizzix, Frame, Oval Scallop and the mustache is from Stampin’ Up! Don’t you think he’s a fun way to say Happy St. Patrick’s Day? ☘️

Box Of Cupcake Cards

To create a box for the cards, I used my Sizzix, Shaker Box Bigz Die.  The cards are made with the Stampin’ Up!, Hello Cupcake stamp set.  Each card measures 2 7/8 x 2 7/8 so they’ll fit in the 3 x 3 box.  I stamped different colors of frosting on each cupcakes then stamped each sentiment on vellum to place on top.

Thanks Treat

Here’s an easy way to customize a small treat. Cut a piece of pattern paper a little wider and twice the length of your cello bag.  Fold the paper around the bag and staple it closed. Don’t forget to place your treat inside first. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Now you can embellish it and the staple will be hidden! I used a few tags, a banner and bow to decorate mine, but the possibilities are endless.

Butterfly Bag

I created an envelope bag then added a couple things to give it a Spring flair. There aren’t any signs of Spring outside, so I have to create them inside. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Black Birthday Box

I thought this would make a good masculine birthday box.  I curled paper strips to create the ribbon on top and added a little sparkle to the candles with glitter paper.  Hmmm... maybe it can be used for an “Over the Hill” birthday gift. ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿ˜

You’re My Pot Of Gold Card

A few gold sequins and the cauldron from the Stampin’ Up!, Tee-Hee-Hee stamp set, and you have a pot of gold! ๐Ÿ˜Š☘️

Floral Smile Slider Box

Kinda hoping, if I use flowers on my projects, spring will come early! ๐Ÿ™ ๐ŸŒธ  Wishful thinking, huh? 

Let’s Celebrate Balloon Card

Don’t you love when a card is simple and can be used for many occasions?  Nothing says “let’s celebrate” like balloons. ๐ŸŽˆ

Window Box Cake

I wanted my flower to look like frosting.  Can’t decide if I accomplished that or not. ๐Ÿค”  I used my Blossom punch to create the flower and my Window Box Framelits to create the box.  Both are Stampin’ Up! products.  Frosting or not, it’s a fun little birthday box. ๐Ÿ˜Š 

Hello Cupcake Chocolate Holder

I fell in love with the Hello Cupcake stamp set.  It’s in the Stampin’ Up!, Sale-A-Bration catalog.  I used it to create this fun treat holder.  You’ll find a couple Hershey’s Nuggets tucked inside. ๐Ÿ˜‹

Sweetheart Card

❤️ Happy Valentine’s Day Sweetheart! ❤️

Box With Love Tag

A tag and washi tape turned a simple, kraft gable box into a Valentine treat holder. I can hardly wait to fill it and give it away.
