Go Ahead Box In A Box

I found the instructions for this box on pootles.co.uk. Thank you Sam for your creativity and willingness to share! :) Its made with the envelope punch board.  I think it makes the perfect Christmas wrap and the bow builder punch made the perfect size bow for the top.

Snowflake Gift Bag

Remember the Festive Flurry Ornament Kit? I assembled mine a little different and attached it to a Polka Dot Tag a Bag gift bag.  I altered the bag a bit too. I'm excited to put a gift inside and give it for Christmas!

Warm Wishes Kisses

As I looked through the Stampin' Up! holiday catalog the first stamp set I had to have was the Tin of Tags set.  I knew exactly what I was going to make with the "warm wishes and mistletoe kisses" sentiment.  Hopefully you have the mitten punch because it's a perfect little addition.

Merry Little Pouch

I made this with a 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 piece of designer paper. It's scored on the long side at 1, 1 1/2, 2, 4, 4 1/2, 5. The short side is scored at 3/4. Cut the 6 small score lines just up to the 3/4 score line.  Remove all the 3/4 pieces except for the 2" center piece.  This will be the bottom flap to seal it closed.  Decorate as desired! :)

Reindeer Pocket

Here's a festive way to give cash for Christmas. I made it with the scalloped tag topper punch, small oval punch, owl builder punch, bird builder punch and blossom petals builder punch. He's a little too small for a gift card but you can alter it to accommodate one.

Grateful Pie

This box isn't big enough to send your family and friends home with a piece of pie, but it can certainly be filled with other yummy treats! :)

Season Of Gratitude

I made this with the Season Of Gratitude Paper Pumpkin and the Two Tags Bigz die (retired).  I thought it would be nice to give one to each person at my Thanksgiving dinner table with a personalized message inside.

Chocolate Pumpkin

Here's another holder for a Hershey's nugget.  I thought I'd make one last project with the Jar Of Haunts stamp set before I put it away. You know...I'm looking at this set and thinking maybe I don't have to put it away.  The jar can be used for other projects and candy corns aren't just orange, yellow and white anymore, now they make them for all the holidays.  ;)

Acorn Nuggets

Another project made with the Acorny Thank You stamp set!  ;) Each one holds a Hershey's Nugget. These are going to look so cute at each setting on my Thanksgiving table.

Grateful Box

I just love the Acorny Thank You stamp set! It's the perfect set for creating Thanksgiving/Grateful projects like this one. :)

Give Thanks Pumpkin Dish

This treat matches my "Fall Jar Centerpiece" from my previous post. I made toppers out of the leftover designer paper I had from my wreath then attached them to indivually wrapped gourmet caramels. The dish is embellished with washi tape I found at Target.

Fall Jar Centerpiece

Remember the styrofoam wreath in the Lovely Little Wreath Paper Pumpkin? This is what I finally made with mine. A Fall centerpiece for my Fall decor. It's basically a bunch of 1x8 inch strips of designer paper wrapped around the styrofoam and topped with a bow. It was easy to make but a bit time consuming.

Nuts About You Pouch

I used the Season of Sweets designer kit to make a pouch for mixed nuts.  The Acorny Thank You stamp set is one of my favorites and a perfect addition to my pouch.

Oval Pumpkin


It took 8 ovals to create this little gem. I used the third largest oval from the Ovals Collection Framelits. I absolutely love the gold and pumpkin pie together and wish I would've made it bigger.

M&M Fall Pouch

You know me, I have to come up with different ideas for the Paper Pumpkin.  Here is the first idea.  I turned one of the envelopes into a pouch so it can hold a bag full of M&M's.  I'm actually excited to make one of the cards the kit was intended for because I've never made a shaker card.

Halloween Gift

Shhh... I create a gift/treat every holiday for my family. This is the treat each one will get for Halloween. The take out box is filled with candy and a gift card. The gift sack has yummy trail mix inside. I hope they love it as much as I loved making it! :)

Mummy Coffin Treat

Look how cute he is tucked inside a coffin filled with candy. :) I'm sad I'll have to put this stamp set away soon.

Halloween Cookies

Who would've guessed Halloween cookies can be given in an envelope? :) How practical and easy!

Square Pumpkin

I transformed a clear tiny treat box into a square pumpkin. Now I need to decide if I should fill it with Halloween candy or use it as a Thanksgiving favor. What do you think? :)

Halloween Candy Bag

Who doesn't like a cello bag filled with candy? They're one of the easiest bags to fill and decorate for every holiday or occasion and that makes them great for gift giving.

Halloween Sweet Treat

This is a super cute treat bag I made with a chevron gift sack. Have you noticed I'm trying to use up all my retired products? That way I have a good excuse to buy the new stuff?! :) As if I need an excuse...

Happy Halloween Card

I realized I haven't created a Halloween card and thought I needed one. :)  I saw something similar to this on Pinterest and loved the idea of using the September Paper Pumpkin stamp set.

Jack-O-Lantern Baker's Box

This was one of the quickest Halloween projects I've made this year and one of my favorites. I think choosing the paper took the most time. :)

Trick or Treat Bag

What do you think about a clear trick or treat bag? This way you know exactly what's inside and how much you still have left to eat!  ;)

Coffin Slider Box

My slider box has a coffin top and an opening so you can see the wrapped candy on the inside. It's a scary yet cute treat. :)
