Haunted Castle Box

This die is part of a set from Echo Park Paper called Haunted Mansion.  I cut two of them and created this little box. The bat is part of the set and the moon was made with a 2" circle punch.  

Toxic Tubes

These little tubes are fun to work with. I wrapped two of them with a belly band and used the Sweet Hauntings (retired) stamp set to create the tag on top.

Double Double Wicked Trouble

Have you seen these Dove, Witches Mix chocolates?! I found them at Target. They are so much fun! Look at the colors and pictures on the wrappers. I thought adding a witch hat clip and putting them in a cello bag was a fun way to present them. 😊

Pumpkin Bucket Nuggets

Now I feel like I can officially move on to Halloween projects.  Yippee! Here's a quick little treat to start off.  If you've been following my blog you know how much I love making Halloween projects! I'll be posting more often so stay tuned. 😉

A Fall Gift Bag For You

Can you believe it's officially the first day of Fall?  I suppose this gift bag can be given any time of year but its colors make it ideal for this time of year.  Now I need the perfect Fall treat to put inside. 😊

Layered Leaves Treat Boxes

Here are a couple of treat boxes I made with the Layered Leaves Paper Pumpkin Kit. I punched an oval circle in the first one to create a handle.  The other is a box cut in half, which is great because it gives you two treat boxes to decorate, fill and give. The leaves on each were created with the Seasonal Layers Thinlits.  

Spiral Flower Box

I cut the lid and both inside flaps off a 2 x 2 x 2 tiny treat box then created a clear sleeve to cover it.  The flowers are made with the Spiral Flower Originals Die.  I used my large scallop punch and a coffee filter to create the layer under the flowers, which I polka dotted with a pencil eraser and Pool Party ink.  The final step was to wrap it with thick baker's twine and tie a bow.

Hello Friend Pillow Box

Perhaps my tag should say "Hello Fall" because the temperatures in my city have taken a dramatic drop.  Don't get me wrong, I love Fall, but I'm not ready for summer to end, it went by so quickly. ☹️ Wouldn't you know...after I created this pillow box my September Paper Pumpkin showed up.  All I can say is, "great minds think alike." 😉

You Did It Card

I used my August Paper Pumpkin kit and the Yummy In My Tummy stamp set to make this fun, "You Did It" card.  I can hardly wait to get the September Paper Pumpkin kit. I hope it's Halloween related! 😉

Celebrate Box

I created this 2 1/2" x 3" box with my Gift Box Punch Board.  The rest is scraps...scrap ribbon, scrap designer paper and scrap tag! Love it when nothing goes to waste!😀

Pink Lemonade

With summer coming to an end I thought it would be fitting to enjoy one last jar of lemonade.  A pink straw and slice of lemon are the perfect compliment to my drink. 😉

Flower Basket Bag

One thing that attracted me to the Bike Ride stamp set and the Build A Bike Framelits were all the fun items that can be added to the bike.  I knew I could use them to make a variety of projects, like this gift bag.  All I used were the sweet flowers and basket. 😊

Floral Window Box

I used the Window Box Thinlits to create a cover for this small treat box.  The sides are covered in strips of designer paper.  I added a small "thanks" tag and ribbon. Now as I look at this project I wonder why it was so time consuming. 🤔
