A Treat For Someone Tweet

You know I won't stop using Thinlits just because they've been retired. 😏  I made this birdhouse with the recently retired Baker's Box Thinlits Dies.  I've been trying to decide if it should be filled with candy or bird seed. 🤔

I cut the tab on one side so you can open and close it easily.  The ribbon helps keep it closed too, but I think it adds to the charm. 😊

Thank You Pansy Card

The square piece on this card was originally a 3 x 3 card.  I wanted a bigger card so I took the card front, added a black mat, then angled it on a bigger card.  The only other thing it needed was black baker's twine to finish it off.

Thanks For Being You Tote

I saw this cute tote on Pinterest and wanted to make one.  Luckily has a video showing how to create this little cutie.  I appreciate she took time and effort to post the video. Thanks!

Just Beecause Matchbook

When was the last time you made a matchbook?  It's been a while since I made one.  I forgot how easy and fun they are to make.  This photo doesn't show the sparkle from the Wink of Stella, I used on the bee's wings. ☹️  It definitely added just the right touch to my "just beecause" treat. 😊

Balloon Birthday Slider Box

I just adore the Treat Slider Box Die by My Creative Time.  It holds 4 Hershey's Nuggets perfectly.  Cash would fit perfectly too. 😉  I decorated the top with the Balloon Adventures stamps and Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies.

Butterfly Gift Bag

Yep, I'm still creating with my past Paper Pumpkin kits. 😊  This project is an envelope from the March 2016 Pocket Full of Cheer kit.  After sealing the sides and bottom of the envelope I scored each of them 1 inch to create the actual bag.
I only glued the bottom part of the butterfly wings to the back of the bag.  This way the flap can be tucked behind the top of the butterfly to keep it closed.

Many Happy Birthdays Gift

This little package was created with my Many Happy Birthdays Paper Pumpkin.  It's holding a Ghirardelli chocolate square.  Don't you think this would be a yummy surprise tucked inside a birthday gift? 🤔😊

Pretty Petals Popcorn Box

Don't you love when a die can be turned into something other than intended? I wouldn't have guessed my Popcorn Box Die could create a sweet little box like this one. Pretty Petals DSP, time and creativity were helpful too. 😉 Once I created the box I cut 1 1/2 inches down on all four score lines.  I folded two sides down and clipped the other two together.

Bicycle Hello Card

If I haven't said it before, I really like bicycle stamps and dies! 😍 This bicycle is part of the Sizzix, Whimsy & Delight Thinlits.  Isn't is delightful? 😊 I also used the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits, Balloon Framelits and Banner Punch.
