Oh Happy Day Treat

It only takes a small homemade tag to turn something as simple as a candy jar into a sweet gift.  

Baby Boy Favor

Don't you just love the "Baby's First Framelits?" My favorite is the tie for the little boy. I didn't need the matching stamps for this project. I simply wrapped a couple of Hershey's Nuggets and attached a onesie and tie. Can you imagine a few of these on a themed baby shower table? 

Birthday Pocket

Remember I said the "Many Manly Occasions gift box" wasn't the first project I created with my May Paper Pumpkin? This was the first project!  I started by cutting off the top diagonal part of one the cards, then I glued along the bottom edge and down the side. Now it holds a mini treat bag perfectly :) I have a great plan for the diagonal piece of the card I cut off, so stay tuned.

Pencil For Teacher

Here's a great last minute teacher appreciation gift.  It's a candy bar wrapper! 

Graduation Cap Box

Graduation is upon us. I can't believe how quick the school year passes. I thought it would be fun to use the gift box punch board to create a 2" box and and turn it into a graduation cap. After creating the box I cut a 3" square for the top. The tassel was a bit time consuming, but like they say, "the tassel is worth the hassle." :) I used the All Wrapped Up Occassions stamp set to create the wrappers for the Hershey Nuggets. Oh, and I stamped 2016 on the top with a stamp from the One Great Year, Paper Pumpkin kit. 

Many Manly Occasions Gift Box

This is my Many Manly Occasions gift box. I made it with the May Paper Pumpkin kit called, "Many Manly Occasions". When I saw the sneak peek for this kit I wasn't sure I liked it, but I knew I needed more "manly" stamps and ideas.  Now that I have the kit, I love it!  The cards are laser cut and so different from anything I've used before.  This wasn't the first project I made with the kit, but I figured I better make something "manly" considering it's a kit designed for male projects.  :)

Movie Night Invite

Movie night invite created out of a popcorn bag I purchased at Zurchers! My invitation will be tucked inside with all the party details. I can hardly wait for a warm night, so we can have it outdoors! :) 

Thanks Candy Flower

My flower pot is filled with candy instead of flowers, which I would gladly accept either one. :) I made this little pot with my Lifestyle Crafts popcorn die. I understand Stampin' Up! has one in their new catalog. I can hardly wait to see all the creative ideas they come up with using it! 

Tea Cup Flowers

Totally forgot about this card. It would've made a "tea"riffic Mother's Day card.

Apple Pillow Box

What do you think about a square apple? I used the square pillow box thinlit to create it. I designed it as a teacher gift but it can be given to anyone. Mine is filled with Werther's. Imagine all the fun apple themed things you could put inside. :)

Bubblegum for Spring

Here's a fun little banner I created with a stamp from the April 2016 Paper Pumpkin. I attached it to a cello bag filled with gumballs. 

All About Everything Birthday Tote

I used a couple of stamps from my April 2016 Paper Pumpkin to make the front of this tote. These little totes can be found at Dollar Tree in the wedding section. They are solid white, which makes them perfect for stamping projects. I'm lovin' the stamps in this set because they're versatile and cute! 

Cone Teacher Gift

School will be out soon, so I've been thinking about teacher gifts. This gift is candy and a gift card, because who doesn't like both. :)
