This little box will hold plenty of Easter treats. It had to be the simplest Easter project I've made and one of my favorites. I used my Popcorn Box die and the Basket Builder Framelits.

After I created this little package a funny thing happened. I was placing the bunny inside and squeezed a little to hard and crushed it. Can you say hollow? 😳 The irony...my sentiment says "may all your chocolate be solid" 😆

On YouTube, Paper Smycho has a tutorial showing how to create Hershey's Nuggets wraps with the envelope punch board. It's a clever and easy way to wrap them. After wrapping two nuggets and using stamps from the Basket Bunch stamp set, I created a little basket with the Window Box Thinlits to hold them.

I've been looking through past Paper Pumpkin kits and realized they are filled with a variety of fun things I'd forgotten about. ☹️ I chose a cello bag and gold clip from my Filled With Love kit to create a St. Patrick's day treat. Maybe I should look through my kits every time I need a little inspiration. 😊

This is the gift card holder I made with the February Paper Pumpkin. I put a gift card for a restaurant inside because everyone "deserves" to be treated to a yummy meal. 😋

What do you think about a Window Box Easter Basket? Can't put much in it but it sure is cute and fun to make. I basically cut the window box in half, with the exception of the back piece. However, 🤔 even that can be cut off. Your choice! 😊

The Many Happy Birthdays Paper Pumpkin has been very challenging for me. I don't plan on making the projects it was intended for, so I needed to think of new ideas. After lots of playing I finally came up with a couple of ideas. This one is a candy bar wrapper. I punched a hole in the top of the wrapper and put ribbon through it so it can be pulled out easier. The other project I created is a gift card holder I'll be posting later so stay tuned. 🙂

Don't you love the cheerful colors on this card? It screams "happy" 😊 The Cool Treats stamp set and Frozen Treats Framelits are so much fun and will be great for the summer months. Now if summer or at least warm weather would hurry and get here, I'd be as happy as this card. 😉

The mini egg cartons were a must when I saw them in the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog. I was especially delighted when I learned they could be colored! It only takes rubbing alcohol, a few drops of Stampin' ink refill and a Stampin' Spritzer. I filled my spritzer 2/3 of the way and added 7 drops of rose romance (retired) ink. I didn't get the coverage I wanted so I filled the spritzer a second time to get the color and coverage I was looking for. It's an easy process just make sure you have something under the carton to catch the over spray. ;)

This little bag is made with a 6 x 6 sheet of paper. It's similar to the box in a bag design, without the box. I found the instructions on kreativblogbyclaudi.blogspot.de. I'm happy she shared the instructions because it's adorable and easy to make. Thanks Claudia!

Isn't this a fun fry box?! I wanted something a little different for St. Patricks's day this year and thought this would be fun. I used the Fry Box Bigz, Envelope Liners Framelits and Mustache Framelits to create it.

I think the monsters in the Yummy In My Tummy stamp set are so darn cute! This time I turned this little guy into a box and filled it with a couple of Hershey's chocolate caramels. He's colored green and blue so he can be given to anyone. :)

You know I can never leave well enough alone. I scored a 1/4" line next to each of the pre-made score lines (towards the cutout) on the sides and bottom of one of the cards, in the Pretty Pocket Card Kit, and turned it into a pouch for candy bars. The back of the card is trimmed approximately 3/4" before it was closed.

I can't get enough of the gold heart bags in the Adoring Arrows Paper Pumpkin. I'm so glad there are lots of them! I used pool party ink to give this one an ombre appearance. The balloon is from the Balloon Framelits.

Quite often I challenge myself to make something with one of my dies I haven't used in a long time. This was the case with my Sizzix Ballroom Slipper die. Look how cute this pair of shoes turned out! This challenge was a success. I wish I could say that about other project challenges I've given myself. ;)

When I picked the Avant Garden set as one of my free Sale-a-bration sets I second guessed myself, because I don't do much with flower stamps. Guess what... I like it! :) The simplicity and the sentiments make the set fun and easy to use.

I've been feeling guilty for not making more projects with my Paper Pumpkin kits. There's no harm in combing kits, right? :) This Valentine treat used pieces from three of my kits, yay! The cello bag is from the Banner Surprise kit. The sentiment is from the Filled With Love kit and the arrow is from the Adoring Arrows kit. Oh, and I used my heart framelits. Cute huh?!

As I was browsing through the February 2017 Better Homes & Gardens magazine I spotted this adorable Valentine bookmark. They gave the link to a free template, so of course I couldn't resist. For mine, I wrapped designer paper around a stick of gum before tucking it inside. This would make the perfect school Valentine, don't you think?! I think it's clever and adorable!

I combined pieces from two Paper Pumpkin kits for this project. The Adoring Arrows and Chalk It Up To Love kits. Thank you Andrea Borries for the easy to follow instructions on creating this adorable box, out of the Chalk It Up a To Love card bases! The sentiment is part of the Sealed With Love stamp set.
