Clear Mini Treat Holder

More clear boxes! :) You can create a treat holder by putting two of the clear tiny treat boxes together.  And... the mini milk carton fits perfectly inside! I can't get over how much I love these little boxes! ;) 

Melon Box

Thanks a melon Stampin' Up! for putting two of my favorite things together! A container that's clear, LOVE it!!  I should've purchased more than one package of these clear tiny treat boxes, because I continually think of ways to use and decorate these sweet little boxes! :) 

Top Note Note Pad

Here's a fun notepad holder I created for my desk. I started with a 4x6 photo frame from the dollar store. The rest was as simple as sliding a sheet of designer paper into the photo slot and creating a paper holder with the top note die. It was an inexpensive project and I was able to customize it to match my other desk accessories. 

Red, White and Blue Fry Box

Just a little something to celebrate the 4th of July.  A red, white and blue fry box. I haven't used my pinwheel in such a long time, I thought this would the perfect project for it. I forgot how hard it was to assemble the little bugger. Luckily, it only needed a simple tag to complete the project. :) 

Chocolate Bundle

Nothing like a cute little bundle of chocolate to put a smile on your face. I wrapped mini Hershey's in designer paper then wrapped all three in a belly band. I used the bow builder punch to create the bow on top and a banner to finish it off. 

It's Your Day Gift

I received my June Paper Pumpkin and I absolutely love it! Before I start on it I want to share this project I made with the May Paper  Pumpkin. I glued the top and bottom of one of the cards then put some Skittles in a cello bag, sealed it and placed it inside. I wanted it to look like a present, so I created a small piece to slide over the top, tied it with a bow and added a tag. 

A Gift Box For Him

Well this had to be the easiest "guy" project I've ever made! ;) I like the gift box punch board, but don't always like the closure. This box is made with the gift box punch board but changed a bit to make a "normal" box closure. I found the instructions on She has an easy to follow video. I'm so happy she shared. Thanks Shannon!

An Enjoyable Tote

This tote is made with the same die as the "double scoop birthday box" I posted last.  Instead of folding it into the box, I cut two and kept them flat to create the sides of my tote. Now I think I should create the actual box, fill it with candy and tuck it inside as part of the gift. :)

Double Scoop Birthday Box

I used my treat slider box die, by My Creative Time, to create this double scoop birthday box. The box is suppose to hold Hershey Nuggets but I'm going to put cash inside, because who doesn't want cash on their birthday?! 

Love & Affection Card

So what do you think about the new Stampin' Up! catalog?  This card is made with its new products. Didn't know what I thought about copper instead of my favorite "gold" but I like it! So for this card I used copper embossing powder, Affectionately Yours designer washi tape, Affectionately Yours Specialty designer series paper, Floral Affection textured impressions embossing folders and Love & Affection stamp set.  This card is loaded with "Affection." ;)

Father's Day Bag

Because guy projects aren't my thing, when I saw this on Pinterest I liked it and copied it, almost exact. It was created by Nicole Tugrul. I'm glad she's good at creating guy things and just in time for Father's Day! :)

Butterfly Gift Holder

Gold is one of my favorites and it didn't let me down when I paired it with pink. For this gift, I folded a glassine envelope in half, wrapped designer paper around it, then added the butterfly and a few "gold" embellishments. It holds a chocolate square and a gift card and will make a perfect gift. 

Flower Wrapped Box

Exactly what it needed, a handle!  I love this idea because a plain box is transformed into a one of a kind box. I cut a 12 X 12 sheet of designer paper in half then pieced it together to create a handle and wrap. It looked great with just the tag and ribbon, but I chose to add a flower that I created with the pansy and blossom punches. 

Flower Birthday Card

Another simple card. I used the stylish stripes embossing folder and the flower from the itty bitty accents punch pack. Not much to it, exactly what I like :)
