It's a piece of cake and a carrot too! The Lifestyle Crafts dessert box die makes a perfect little treat to give with any birthday gift or as the gift itself. The added bonus... if you think outside the box (he,he) it looks like a carrot. Hmmm... now I wondering what else I can turn it into. Don't you love the creative process?!

Sometimes its easier to give a gift card than buy a gift. I know I like getting gift cards! :) So I made an Easter gift card holder, with a sweet little chick on it. I used the petite pocket die, bird builder punch and hearts a flutter framelits die.

Remember these envelopes from the Season of Sweets Designer Kit, in the Stampin' Up! holiday catalog? Well, I altered mine so it could hold something wider than it was originally intended to hold. Which is great, only I can't decide what "wide" thing to put inside. :) I scored 1/2 inch on both sides and across the bottom to make it wider. It's the same process as turning any regular envelope into a gift bag.

When I saw the Ears to You single stamp I knew it was a must have. The bunnies with their cute little patterns are adorable. The quickest and easiest way to use them was on a cello bag full of pastel M&Ms.

I have so many retired Stampin' Up! dies that I refuse to discard or forget about, and this is one of them. It's from the Bitty Box and Envelope die and I still love it. For my box I wanted colors that weren't the typical baby colors, so I used the Sycamore Street DSP and the Itty Bitty Banners Stamp set in the Sale-a-bration catalog for my inspiration. I cut the center of the box with the smallest die from the windows frames collection and placed a piece of vellum behind it. My butterfly was made with the beautiful wings embosslits. You always need ribbon, so a little bakers twine worked perfectly. My favorite trick is to use permanent colored markers on the pearl basic jewels, that's how I made the orange pearl in the middle of the butterfly.

I used the petite envelope die and the 3/4 circle punch to make this project. Before I sealed the envelope I punched a hole on each end of the front cover. The tootsie roll is tucked through each hole. This puts a little twist on just placing the treat inside the envelope. :)

There is no denying I like containers, so it's no surprise I turned the owl punch into a little Hershey Nugget box. I used the 1 3/4 scallop circle to create the wings and a 1 1/2 x 3 piece of cardstock to create the box. The cardstock is scored at 1" and 2" on the long side and in 3/8 on both sides, on the short side.

A few different folds with an envelope from the Sealed with Love Simply Sent creates a pouch for a small treat. The Pop-Up Posies Designer Kit was used to make the flower I attached on front.

Don't you think these little jeans are adorable?! It's one of the stamps in the Patterned Occasion stamp set, which is FREE if you order $50 in Stampin' Up! merchandise. Oh wait... so is the Sycamore Street designer paper and button I used on the card!
