Gingerbread Kisses Bag

I slid a piece of cardstock into a cello bag then used the Cheerful Tags Thinlits as the topper.  The gingerbread seemed a perfect fit for the front. 

Pink Snowflake Window Box

I've noticed pink is a trendy Christmas color this year. I decided to create a little something with that in mind. Snowflakes seemed to work especially well with pink. What do you think about pink for Christmas? 

To You & Yours Card

When was the last time you used your Circle Card Thinlits?  I used mine along with the November 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit to create this Christmas card.   

Snowflake Pillow Box

I love pillow boxes! They're fun to make and fun to give.  This one is just the right size for a gift card and we know everyone likes gift cards. 😊

Christmas Stockings

I sell these adorable gift card/treat holder stockings in my Etsy shop.  You can find the link in my menu. 

Christmas Crackers

These sweet little boxes were made with my cracker box die.  They're small, but darn cute. 😊  I think I'll put rolled up cash inside each one and use them as stocking stuffers. 

Making Spirits Bright Tags

Aren't these fun?! They'd make cute wine tags. I made the light on the tag with my bow builder punch.  Don't you love when you find other ways to use your punches? 

Happy Thanksgiving Pilgrim Box

Wishing you and your family a beautiful and blessed day. Happy Thanksgiving!

Just For You Petal Cone

I like the hint of pink and gray on my white cone box.  The silver cording added just the sparkle it needed.  Now I have a lovely gift box to give away.

Pink Flower Birthday Box

I created the pink flower on this box with my 1 3/8" circle punch. The center of the flower is a 1/4" x 6" strip of paper, I cut with my fringe scissors then rolled tightly.  It was a fun project but challenging.  I prefer quick and easy. 😉

Gratitude Box

It's gratitude season, so why not design a festive fall box to share your festive fall goodies.  😋  Mine is made with die cut leaves and an acorn.  The box is from the Stampin' Up!, Bitty Box & Envelope.  

Thank You Cookie

I placed pattern paper and a shortbread cookie inside a 4 x 6 cello bag.  Once closed I wrapped a belly bend with a "Thank you" sentiment on top.  Just think of all the yummy things you can put inside and all the reasons to give one. 😊

Grateful Friends Card

Here's the card I made with the Friends of a Feather, Paper Pumpkin.  The sentiment is from the For All Things, stamp set.

Friends Of A Feather

You like chocolate, I like chocolate... I'd say we're friends of a feather. Wouldn't you?! 😅 I can't say I really liked the November paper pumpkin at first glance.  However, the more I look at the pieces and challenge myself to use it, the more I like it.  I'll try to make a card with the kit,  but you how how I prefer 3D projects! This little pouch contains gourmet chocolate, which is so much better than a card! 😍

Creepy, Crawly Halloween Card

Hope your Halloween celebration is as festive as this guys!  Happy Halloween! 🎃

Skull Pouch

Why not take one small treat and make it look like so much more? Create a simple pouch out of a 6" x 6" piece of cardstock then add shredded tissue paper as the filler. You can embellish it as much or as little as you choose. Now that small treat doesn't seem so small after all. 😉

Scary "Treets"

Scary "treets"! Play on words, what do you think? You know...tree..."treets". 😏 I guess that's beside the point because the only thing anyone cares about is the candy bar inside! Am I right? 😊

Eat, Drink & Be Scary

Because I have such a love for all things Halloween, I purchased a die that allows me to make these great spider web cupcake wrappers. It's too bad I don't love making cupcakes. 😆  I guess I'll have to think of other creative ways to use it. 😀 Any ideas?

Mummy Bag

This little guy, or should I say gal is a sweet little addition to my striped Halloween bag, especially with her jeweled eyes and orange bow. I used my Sizzix, Bag w/Scallops to create the bag.  Because the side pieces on the die are separate from the front and back piece I was able to use two different types of paper. I've always thought with so many pieces it made the box more cumbersome to assemble, when all along I should've thought it gave me more options.

Trick Or Treat Baker's Box

Why did Stampin' Up! have to retire the Baker's Box Thinlits? It's adorable, easy to assemble and holds plenty of goodies. 😋 I just love the bright colors on this box, don't you?! I especially like the little bit of sparkle on the tag.
