Happy Big Day Box

 Boxes are great ways to package birthday gifts. The flower and bow make this box a little feminine, but without them, it looks masculine too. :)

Santa Box

When I saw this Santa on Pinterest, I knew I needed to make one! I used the gift bow die, perfect pennants die, boho blossoms punch, 1/2 circle punch, owl builder punch and a swirl embossing folder. I didn't have any official instructions so it took a while to create, but I'm sure the second one will be quicker, at least I hope so, because they're going to be my neighbor gifts. :)

Merry Gift Sack

I've seen these mini muslin gift sacks everywhere, so I thought I'd make one of my own. :)

Very Merry Candy Container

I found these fun containers at a local scrapbook store. I love the size! I love the be merry tag too! I wanted the tag to have a chalkboard look so I used white ink on black paper. The holly and berry added the perfect extra color.

Very Merry Christmas Card

It's amazing how a couple pieces of washi tape can transform a card. The patterns and color make all the difference.

Christmas Tote

I changed the look of my gable box by cutting and lowering the front and back pieces and adding a handle. I created the handle with the deco labels collection framelits.

A big Christmas bow in traditional colors on a french fry box? I think a french fry box is a fun and different way to package a Christmas gift. Don't you!? :)

Candy Cane Petite Pocket

I created this box with two petite pockets. Before I glued them together I used the candy cane from the Holiday Collection Framelits to create a window. I was presently surprised when the mini candy canes I purchased were the exact size of the window. :)

Thank You Leaf Tag

I can't get enough of the chalk talk tag! I used the woodgrain embossing folder, itty bitty banners and leaves #2 die to embellish it. It makes a perfect favor for the season. 
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Circle Thinlit Gift Bag

I found the instructions for this gift bag on youtube. It's made with the circle card thinlits die. I was so excited to see a 3d project created with a card die. I love all the creative stampers out there! :)

Pilgrim Hat Favor

 I can't believe Thanksgiving is next week. The holidays are coming so fast. Luckily I thought of this idea in time for Thanksgiving. Isn't it fun!?

Joy Treat Tray

I made a little tray with the Season of Style DSP. Under the "JOY" letters are Peppermint Patties. It's a festive way to give a small little treat.

Perfect Cocoa Blend

I folded a Stampin' Up! tag a bag. Now it has two pockets! One holds a hot chocolate packet and the other holds a little wooden spoon.  I'm not a coffee drinker, but I had to have the Perfect Blend stamp set. It works for hot cocoa too! :)

Sending Thanksgiving Wishes

We still need to remember Thanksgiving, before Christmas completely takes over. ;)

Give Thanks Treat Bag

I attached a piece of designer paper to the bottom of a cello bag and used washi tape to wrap around the top. It's a cute way to dress up a plain cello bag.

So Kind Of You

A fall gift box. Love the colors...I found this gold sparkle tulle at Michaels. Lately, tulle has been one of my favorite go to ribbons. I recently heard it comes in a chevron pattern, so I'll be searching for it, to add to my stash! :)

Spider Box

Once again...a little glitter paper makes a big difference. Love it and the trick or treat stamp!  Have a fun and safe Halloween!

Simple Suckers



A last minute Halloween treat.  These don't require stamps! :). I used the eraser on a pencil to create the polka dots and a little washi tape to decorate the other. Both are wrapped in coffee filters. So simple!

Toil & Trouble Treat

This cute little package holds three mini Reese's peanut butter cups. I made it with Toil & Trouble stamp set, Apothecary Accents framelits, Oval Accent Bigz die and 1 1/4 scallop circle punch.

Halloween Pillow Box

Pillow boxes don't seem to be as popular as they once were. I'm not giving up on them, they're adorable and fun to embellish. :)

Chalk Talk Gum Pouch

I created a little pouch and attached it to a chalk talk tag.  Its the perfect size to hold a small Wrigleys 5, package of gum. I love the size of these gum packages, they're so darn cute. :)

Toil & Trouble Candy Corns

Have you seen the Starburst Candy Corns?!  I don't like the regular candy corns, but these caught my eye. They're a little sweet for my taste, but they're better than the others. :)

Trick or Treat Skeleton Bag

It's amazing how a small piece of silver glitter paper can transform a project.  All it needs now is a yummy Halloween treat.

Toil & Trouble Hershey Nugget Holder

Here's a fun way to cover a Hershey Nugget. It's made with the toil  & trouble stamp set and the apothecary accents framelits. I folded the bottom tabs on the framelits to hold the nugget.

Pumpkin Hand Sanitizer


Most of us use hand sanitizer, so why not make it cute for the season?! I used a small piece of acetate and a pumpkin rub-on.  After rubbing the pumpkin on the acetate, you roll it up and place it inside the bottle.  No worries... it unrolls once it's inside. A piece of washi tape around the bottom and ribbon around the top!  :)

A Creepy Crawly Envelope

If you don't have the Stampin ' Up! envelope punch board, you need one. It's so easy to use and envelopes can be made with any of your patterned paper. I turned the envelope I made into halloween packaging.

Witches Broom Treat

I keep seeing adorable witches brooms on Pinterest made with natural colored coffee filters. I wondered how I could make something similar with the supplies I already have, and this is what I came up with. I used Stampin' Up! crumb cake tulle ribbon! I cut 5 - four inch pieces of tulle, stacked them on each other, cut a small hole through the center and put a dum dums lollipop through it. I cut random size strips through each piece of tulle towards the stick then wrapped a small piece of black ribbon to hold it in place.  I used black permanent marker to color the stick, then tied the cute little tag on with linen thread. I'm super happy with how it turned out!

Bat Petite Purse

Every holiday needs a holiday purse, and with Halloween being one of my favorites, it was a must! :)

A Little Something Tote

Don't you love the chalk talk set?! I sure do! And the washi tape is another must have. I used it to make the twist tie on the cello bag. All you do is put a thin piece of wire between two pieces of washi tape and presto, you have a colorful little tie.

Fright Night Treat

A simple scary treat, if you like black licorice. Yuck! :)

Eat At Own Risk

These boxes are the best! I filled mine with Halloween Oreo cookies. The new Stampin' Up! bow die is one of my favorites, because it dresses up anything and everything with very little effort. 

Sep 20, 2013

Fall Leaf Treat

My leaf is a treat! I used the autumn accent bigz to cut two leaves from coffee filters. The stamp is from the gently falling stamp set. I glued the edges leaving a small opening to fill it with Reese's Pieces. Once it was filled I glued it closed. It's a fun way to say thank you or it would make a nice fall table place card.

For You Mini Treat Container

I've always thought the little ketsup containers would make a fun stamped project! I put orange gumballs inside mine, but think of all the possibilities.

Witch Accessories

Sizzix has this adorable ballroom slipper bigz die. My first thought was to make a witch shoe for Halloween, not a ballroom slipper :) Of course it wouldn't be complete without a matching purse.

October 31st Treat

An easy cute treat for Halloween! I wrapped Tootsie Rolls in white paper and Witches' Brew washi tape. The tag is made with more Witches' Brew washi tape and the Chalk Talk Framelits, love them both!

Trick or Treat Envelope

My new favorite die is the gift bow bigz die. I love, love, love the bows it makes and how they transform your projects. This is an envelope from one of last years Stampin' Up! Christmas kits. I turned it into a Halloween treat, without the treat. :) I'll figure out what to put inside, when the Halloween goodies start filling the stores.

Fall Treat Bag

I'm so excited fall is coming! I love everything about the season, other than winter follows shortly after. I used Stampin' Up! autumn accents bigz die to create the tags hanging from my glassine bag. It has soft chewy caramels inside.

Autumn Thanks

I'm so excited to start creating Fall and Halloween projects. The season and colors are my favorite!

A Little Something Gift Sack

I can't get enough of this little gift sack!  This time I glued a paper flower to a clothes pin, clipped it to the two tags die, then to the sack.  I hated to see the two tags die retire, it's easy and fun to use.

Strawberry Basket

The floral frames collection framelits make fun strawberries when folded just right. They look so sweet in the berry baskets and a treat can be put in each one for a little extra surprise.

Birthday Cake

These little wooden spoons are the sweetest, and it looks so darn cute with my cake slice box. The happy birthday tag from the Stampin' Up! label love set matches and fits perfectly on top.

K is for Cookie

K is for cookie. :)  I put white ink on my Chevron embossing folder before I embossed the sack. It added the little hint of color I was hoping for.  You only need a few embellishments because the cookie is the main attraction. YUM!

Owl Matchbox

Isn't this the cutest?! I found it on Pinterest but couldn't find instructions, so I used what I had to recreate it. Everything I used is a Stampin' Up! punch or die. The base is the matchbox die, other items used 1 3/8, 1 1/4 and 1 inch circle punches. 1 3/4 scallop circle, small heart punch, bird builder punch, large oval punch, 5 petal flower punch and top note die.
