Cherries remind me of summer, so I thought a cherry card was a great way to say welcome. In Utah we've had 90 plus temperatures the last few weeks so it feels like summer came weeks ago. I guess I blinked and missed spring. 😫
Dont you love when you create something in just minutes?! Normally I spend lots of time on each project. This one came together quick and I love the results! I wrapped three Ghirardelli chocolate squares with paper from the Sending Love DSP. After tucking them inside a cello bag I used gold twine to attach a couple stars I made with my Stars Framelits.
I can't remember the last time I made one of these pouches. They are so quick and easy to make. I made mine with a 6x6 sheet of paper but they can be made in any size. I'd recommend making them a little larger otherwise you're limited to what can be tucked inside.
I found these Dove dark chocolates at Target. I love the red, white and blue wrappers. I love dark chocolate too, so it was a win all the way around for me! 😋 Have you seen all the different candies with patriotic wrappers?! They make it easy to create fun holiday projects. 👍
The Paper Pumpkin for May was all about donuts and I missed out. ☹️ However, I wasn't going to let that stop me from creating with donuts! So, I pulled out my 2", 1 3/4" and 3/4" punches and got busy creating. After I punched a 1 3/4" circle from pink paper I free handed the outer edge to give it and "icing" look. I searched through my stamps and found a sprinkle stamp in my Sweet Scoops stamp set, because donuts need sprinkles. 😊 The cover was made with my Fry Box Bigz Die. The final and best part is the Hostess mini donut I placed inside. 😋
I don't have many masculine stamps or embellishments but I do have this mustache die. After attaching a die cut mustache to a mini clip, I used it to attach a tag to my box. Luckily I had masculine looking paper to create the tag. 😉 Now that I'm looking at this post, I find it funny I don't have masculine stamps or embellishments but I have a mini hammer. What?! 🤔😜
Purse time! I thought it was time to create one of my favorites, a purse! ❤️ I found the video for this purse, made from a 6x6 sheet of paper, on YouTube. It's created by Maymay Made It Crafts. Isn't it adorable? So is Maymay. Thanks for sharing!
I used a couple items out of the One Great Year Paper Pumpkin kit to create this gift card holder. It's actually a card and gift card holder in one. I created a small pocket on the front to hold the gift card, this way I can add a sentiment to the inside of the card.
Do you have stamp sets you just can't part with? I'm so happy I kept a set called Pocket Fun (retired years ago). It has a pocket stampsimilar to Pocketful of Sunshine, in the new Stampin' Up! catalog. When I saw this new set I was reminded of mine, so I pulled it out and created a pouch for pocket change...the chocolate kind! 😋
I have money rolled up and tucked inside this birthday creation. Nothing better than cash on your birthday, am I right? 🤑 I made this gift with the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits, which Stampin' Up! retired. What?! Why?!...😫
