Take Out Treats …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Just a quick post today as I am packing up for my Holiday Stampin’ Retreat and cooking … the house smells awesome!!  I’ll share more about retreat in the upcoming days.

Whether it’s a birthday party of Christmas, this treat packaging is perfect for this season—or any time of year! Today I’m highlighting the Take Out Box Dies … a great treat packaging idea!

Create a die-cut takeout box with hearts or stars in record time with Thinlits dies and the Big Shot.  Thinlits dies help you create detailed die cuts with just a few turns of the Big Shot handle.

Awesome Gift Box

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share with you a quick -n- easy 3-D project … a gift box! You’ll start with one of our Take Out boxes found on page 151 of our current annual catalog.  (Our new catalogs are on their way!)

You will also need the “Big News” stamp set … I will have our highlighted products listed below so you can see them.

awesome gift box

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Wrap a piece of Regals Designer Series Paper around the Takeout Box to create a bellyband.
  2. Cut a piece of White Corrugated Paper using the Fringe Scissors. Adhere the paper to the box.
  3. Stamp the sentiment in VersaMark ink on a piece of Tangerine Tango Cardstock. Cover the stamped words with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, shake off any excess powder, and heat set.
  4. Punch the two sides of the stamped cardstock using the Ornate Tag Topper Punch.
  5. Thread the Gold 1/8” (3.2 mm) Ribbon through the hole in one side of the cardstock and wrap it around the back side of the box and tie in a bow through the hole on the other side of the cardstock.

I think that is such a cute box to give as a gift. Hope you enjoyed it as well.

Thank you for popping in today …

Hope your day is a good one.

Do you ever find yourself wishing that you had a stash of gift packages . . . so you’re ready for anything? If you’re super-organized and already have one—hurray!

Why not make fancy occasion gift packaging stash using our beautiful English Garden Designer Series Paper (item # 138440)? (Put a gift card inside—maybe for the couple’s favorite restaurant!) P.S.

Sweet Treats Gift Idea …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I have a cute little project for you … a different twist using the “Petite Purse Bigz Die”. What a cute way to present a little treat to cheer up a friend or to say “Thank You”… just trim off the top!

CreativeProj2_DBWS_USCA_Apr0112

Choose one of your favorite patterns from a designer paper and with the Boho Blossom punch, create a cute little flower for the front. A pretty little bow made from our Daffodil Delight 1/2″ seam binding ribbon.

I love this little alternative to the “standard” purse … so have fun with your die!  Don’t have one? Now’s a great time to order … Free Shipping from Stampin’ Up! and I will pay the tax for you!!

Thanks for stopping by, and thanks to all of you who wished me a Happy Birthday yesterday. I had a nice day!

Today’s Stampin’ Supply List …

 

Sweet Treat Halloween Keepsake Box

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

I’m back with my Halloween series of cards and projects … Today a project! I saw so many fabulous boxes created with the “Curvy Keepsake Box” that I had to order one for myself, and my first endeavor highlights Halloween and the “Motley Monsters” Designer Paper …

000_1579

Isn’t that cute!  The box is so simple to create … just cut 2 pieces from the die (I slide the designer paper in too, to create the two tone look) I like using the 12 x 12 cardstock sheets cut in half for my boxes.

I plan on adding treats inside so I wanted to make a tag… and what better set is there to use than the new ” Merry Everything” stamp set.  I love a stamp set that you can use all year long! I love a great value too, an you can save 15% by bundling it with the coordinating “Note Tag” punch.

000_1572

I wanted to recreate the candy color on the designer paper, so I sponged the Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie onto my Whisper White, and then stamped my “Good to the Last Bite” stamp. I used the new Memento pad … love it, love it, love it!

Let’s grab the “Sticky Strip” and put our little treat box together, and celebrate our sweet treat box. The ribbon is the new “Tangelo Twist” Satin Stitched ribbon … it’s even prettier in your hands!

000_1576_0001

Let’s not forget the yummies … Oh yes, and the little clothes pin came from one of my “Paper Pumpkin” kits!
