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. 💋
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.
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.
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.
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. 😊
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? 😉
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. 😉
