I'm going to miss the chevron gift bags. This one isn't closed or standing the typical way, but why be typical? ;)

Here's a fun way to give a gift card for coffee. This holder is made using a 3 X 11 piece of cardstock. I scored it at 4"', 6 1/2"' , 7 1/2", and 10". I used the 2 3/8 scallop circle punch to create the spot for the mini cup, then I created a small pocket to hold the gift card, which measures 2 3/4 X 2 3/4.

In Utah, July 24 is a state holiday called Pioneer Day. We carry over the red, white and blue theme from the 4th of July. These are the treats I created for each of my family members in honor of the holiday. I used the banner framelits to create a flag to place on top of my cello bag and the star framelits to create a star along with another small banner to hang off the drink.

The decorative window gift boxes retired. :( I purchased a couple of packages, because I like the little round window on it. You can use Stazon ink to stamp on the window like I did. I turned this box into a cute gift box with a treat and a card.

I haven't made a purse in a while and loved this version when I saw it on Pinterest, so I had to give it a try. The 3 X 3 cards and envelopes fit it perfectly, but it has plenty of room for so many other options. It's so stinkin' cute!

I've had the Happy Hello Simply Sent Kit for such a long time. I bought it to create a box out of one of the cards in the kit and finally got around to making one. Youtube has several videos on how to make it. I made 3 x 3 cards with the Painted Petals stamp set to put inside the box. I used the Envelope Liners Framelits to create a matching liner to put inside the 3 1/8 x 3 1/8 square envelopes. The bow was made with the large oval punch and the tag is stamped with the Lovely Amazing You stamp set. To bring it all together I trimmed the bottom with washi tape.

I made this little tote with the Stampin' Up! Fry Box Bigz. You need two fry boxes because you remove the front part of each box and glue together the back pieces. The handle is made with the large oval punch.

Here's another little treat for the holiday. A matchbox with a clear cover and Hershey Nuggets wrapped in stars and stripes paper. The "enjoy" is from the mini treat bag thinlits.
