Lip Balm Cracker Box

Turns out my little cracker box die creates the perfect size box for a lip balm. 😊  After creating the box, I cut the scallops off one end, folded it and glued it closed.  A little gold curly ribbon and "kisses" stamp pulled it all together. 💋

Just Believe Thank You Note

Don't you love small cards?  They're the perfect size for a quick note.  I used the Stampin' Up!, Just Believe stamp set along with a couple scraps of paper to make this 3 x 3 card.

Curvy Keepsake Watermelon

Is anyone else lovin' watermelon? I don't know if it's the extra hot temperatures, but I've been eating lots of it.  This little watermelon will be edible too, once I fill it with goodies. 😊 🍉❤️

Thank You Treat Bag

The gold and blue look better than I imagined.  I created this small bag with the Stampin' Up!, Mini Treat Bag Thinlits, Itty Bitty Banners and Happy Harmony stamp sets.  Sadly, they've all retired.  When I first put it together it needed a little something more, so I added the doily and love the delicacy and dimension it added.

Polka Dot Backpack

In honor of back to school, I created a little backpack. I used my Sizzix Bigz Die, Box W/Flap then added a couple strips of gray paper for the straps. I filled it with chocolates, which is far better than books and homework. 😊  The wrappers on the chocolates were created with the Stampin’ Up!, It’s A Wrap Occasions stamp set. 

Fresh Prints Gate Fold Card

I've never created a gate fold card before.  Have you?  It's not as simple as folding a card in half, but the outcome is worth it.  I started with a 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of cardstock and scored it on the 8 1/2" side at 2 1/8" and 6 3/8".  The two pieces of pattern paper are 5 1/2" x 1 7/8".  The belly band can be any width you like, mine is 1" x 9".  If you haven't tried a gate fold card, give it a try.  It's a fun alternative to a regular card.  

Polka Dot Cracker Boxes

These are so dang cute because they're only 3 1/2" x 1" in size.  I have 4 Hershey's Kisses inside, so it only holds a handful of treats, but the cuteness makes it worth it! 😜 I purchased the die at the Let's Create Expo a few months ago.  I can hardly wait to show you the ones I made for Halloween.  Figured I better wait another few weeks, I don't want to rush things.  Actually, I do but I won't. 😊

Birthday Gift Box With Stand

Wouldn't this be a fun little addition to the place setting of a birthday guy or girl?  You could make them for any holiday or special event.  It's a place card, or is it a gift, wait... a party favor?  😉

Cupcake Treat

Here's a fun birthday ensemble.  I used my Sizzix, Cupcake Fold-It Die set and created a little matching card to go with it.  Do you like how the birthday candle creates the handle?! 😊

Sunshine Wishes Gift Card Holder

I used the Sizzix, Pocket w/Scallop Edge Die for the holder and the Stampin' Up!, Sunshine Wishes Dies to embellish it.  The bottom of the holder is embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder.  The little tag and twine completes the look.  No wait...the gift card completes it. 😉
