Five For All Pizza Box for an Over the Hill Birthday Party

It’s a party! My presentation at the Spring Stamp-Along last week was all about party favors, food, and decor for five different types of party. One type was a birthday party for an adult. I haven’t seen the Over the Hill birthday theme used in a long time, so I decided to go with that. I used black and silver for all the projects. The Five For All stamp set has funny birthday sentiments perfect for this theme.

Today I’m sharing a box that could hold a small gift or a party favor. Don’t you just love the Mini Pizza Boxes? And they’re carrying over to the new catalog! Unfortunately, the Five For All stamp set is not. It’s one of the products that will be retiring, so it will be available through May 31, or while supplies last. See all the retiring products HERE.

 

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Silver Foil Sheet cut to 3″ x 3″
  • Basic Black card stock (CS) cut to 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″

Stamped with the Five For All stamp set:

  • sentiment in Versamark ink onto the Basic Black CS square, then heat embossed in silver

Painted using Archival Basic Black ink refill:

  • the outside of the box – let it dry completely before adhering anything to it
  • NOTE: I used an old paintbrush. The ink did stain it, but did not hurt it at all.
  • NOTE: I used an alcohol pad to remove any ink from the inside of the box.

Assembled the project:

  • folded the box together
  • adhered the sentiment onto the Silver Foil Sheet piece using Tear & Tape
  • adhered the Silver Foil Sheet to the top of the box using Stampin’ Dimensionals, being sure to leave a “tunnel” for the ribbon
  • ran ribbon under the Silver Foil Sheet, wrapped it around the box, and tied it on the side
  • applied Metallic Enamel Shapes (silver dots) to the top of the box around the Silver Foil Sheet, to resemble a marquis

APPT Blog Hop – May Good Things Grow

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop - alternate projects made with the Paper Pumpkin kits

Hurray, it’s time for the March 2018 APPT blog hop! This month’s kit is called May Good Things Grow, and it is just lovely. Of course, we can’t leave well enough alone, so we used the kit to create alternate projects, just to give you some ideas. Be sure to check out all the stops on the hop!

The kit makes cards that go is adorable envelopes that look like seed packs. I used the seed packs to make a card and a sour cream container. No, there isn’t sour cream in it, but it’s the shape of the little take out containers that sour cream comes in. It’s one of the easiest containers to make, and it’s even easier with a premade envelope. 

The card base is Fresh Fig card stock, but I used one of the kit card bases to cut a piece for the inside of the card. I used Fresh Fig ink, but the Early Espresso ink that comes in the kit would match equally as well.

Brads! There are brads in this kit! I’ve always liked using brads in my paper crafting – there are lots of things you can do with them.

At the bottom of this post, there’s a list of the products I used other than what’s in the kit. There aren’t many. This kit has so much in it, I can think of all sorts of things to make with it. I listed glue and Tear & Tape, because I prefer them, but the kit comes with glue dots – and a whole lot of Stampin’ Dimensionals!

 

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Fresh Fig card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • front of one of the seed packs cut off and trimmed around the design
  • the flap off another seed packet cut off
  • cut a 3-3/4″ x 5″ piece from a Crumb Cake card base

Stamped with the May Good Things Grow stamp set:

  • birthday sentiment in Fresh Fig ink onto one of the precut labels
  • friendship sentiment in Fresh Fig ink onto a larger precut label
  • scroll design in the four corners of the trimmed Crumb Cake card base

“Colored” using Clear Wink of Stella Pen:

  • all the color die cut flowers and leaves (not the monotone ones that are part of the large floral die cut)

Assembled the card:

  • seed pack front glued onto the front of the card base
  • large floral die cut adhered to the seed pack layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • single die cut pink and yellow flowers and one die cut leaf adhered over the large floral die cut using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • 2 brads attached to the larger label, then the label adhered to the large floral die cut using Stampin’ Dimensionals

Assembled the sour cream container:

  • pinched the top of the bag perpendicular to the bottom, so the two side score lines touch (I also used snips to cut the edges straight)
  • put some goodies inside, then sealed the top shut with Tear & Tape
  • punched a hole through the top with the 1/8″ Circle Punch
  • put the Fresh Fig ribbon through the hole and tied a bow
  • glued a die cut flower and some die cut leaves to the front
  • glued on the birthday label

OSAT – Don’t Go Breaking My Painted Heart

One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop header

It’s time for the OSAT Blog Hop! This month’s theme is Don’t go breaking my heart in honor of Valentine’s Day. Remember the song by Elton John and Kiki Dee? If not, you can watch the video here. My project has plenty of hearts – a large one from the Painted with Love Designer Series Paper, and small ones from the Sure Do Love You stamp set – and fortunately none of them are broken.

I’m on a ship right now (I’m actually at a live performance by Casey McPherson as I type this, so if there are any typos, that’s why!) My sister, and Candy Hearts team member, Judy Newsome, is house sitting. When I realized I’d forgotten to make the projects for today before I left, I contacted her and begged for help. Of course, she obliged because that’s the kind of gal she is. Between the two of us, we designed the card and treat box, and she actually made and photographed them. So while it was a team effort, she did the lion’s share of the work. Thanks, Judy!

Be sure to hop around to all the blogs listed below. You don’t want to miss any of the great projects by this group!

 

Here’s what we made:

Quick & Easy Lemon Lime 3D Gift

Today’s project is so quick and easy it really doesn’t need instructions, but since I know some folks will ask if I don’t explain how it’s done, I will. This little treat is a lemon lime dream. Lemon Lime Twist paper (from the Eastern Palace Designer Series Paper) and actual lemon lime jelly beans match perfectly. And you know how I like stuff to match! 

You can whip up a bunch of these little treats, in any color you choose, in no time. The box goes together in seconds. Wouldn’t they be darling on a table, maybe one box on each place setting? Or if you need a bunch of cute little somethings in a hurry for a gathering, your child’s classmates, coworkers, you name it! Just think of all the possibilities!

FYI, a little square Pandora charm box fits inside this treat box perfectly. I’m thinking a ring box would as well.

 

Here’s what I made:

2" x 2" acetate box filled with Jelly Beans and decorated with Stampin' Up! DSP and a Bow made with the Bow Builder Punch 2" x 2" acetate box filled with Jelly Beans and decorated with Stampin' Up! DSP and a Bow made with the Bow Builder Punch 2" x 2" acetate box filled with Jelly Beans and decorated with Stampin' Up! DSP and a Bow made with the Bow Builder Punch

 

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 1″ x 9″, then scored at 2″, 4″, 6″, and 8″

Cut using the Bow Builder Punch:

  • a scrap of Whisper White card stock
  • NOTE: cut twice to have enough pieces for one bow. There will be one small piece left over.

Assembled the project:

  • assembled a Clear Tiny Treat Box
  • NOTE: when folding in the bottom flaps, you’ll see there’s one flap with 2 sticky-outy pieces, one flap with 1 sticky-outy piece, and the 2 side pieces. Fold them in this order: 1) 2 flap, 2) side flaps, 3) one flap, tucking it’s tongue into the slot created by the other flaps.
  • put the jelly beans inside
  • wrapped the DSP around the box and glued the ends together on the bottom
  • assembled the bow using glue
  • NOTE: you may notice the fold lines in the bow. I didn’t burnish, or curl, the paper with a Bone Folder before assembling the pieces. Oops! Burnish them, the way you’d curl ribbon, and you won’t have that problem.
  • glued the bow onto the top of the band of DSP

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Night of Navy card stock (CS) cut to 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″
  • Tutti-Frutti Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 3-3/4″ x 5″
  • Night of Navy CS cut to 2-3/4″ x 3-1/8″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 2-5/8″ x 3″
  • 2 Tutti-Frutti card bases – 3/8″ cut off one end, and scored 3/8″ from the other end
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4-1/8″ x 4-1/8″, then scored 1/4″ from each of the four sides
  • Tutti-Frutti DSP cut to 2″ x 4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 1-3/4″ x 3-1/8″

Stamped with the Fruit Basket stamp set:

  • bowl in Garden Green ink onto a scrap of Lemon Lime Twist CS
  • 7 strawberries in Real Red and Lemon Lime Twist inks onto a scrap of Whisper White CS
  • card sentiment in Night of Navy ink onto the 2-5/8″ x 3″ Whisper White CS
  • tag sentiment in Lemon Lime Twist ink onto the 1-3/4″ x 3-1/8″ Whisper White CS
  • a strawberry in Real Red and Lemon Lime Twist inks onto the inside of a third card base
  • a strawberry in Real Red and Lemon Lime Twist inks onto the front of the envelope

Cut using the Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Pack:

  • 7 strawberries from the Whisper White CS scrap
  • 3 strawberries from each side of the 2 trimmed card bases, near the bottom

Cut with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch:

  • one end of the 2″ x 4″ DSP, to create the tag

Die cut using the Eastern Medallion Thinlits:

  • a medallion from each side of the 2 trimmed card bases

Cut using Paper Snips:

  • bowl

Colored using a Stampin’ Write Marker:

  • darkened some of the strawberry tops in Lemon Lime Twist
  • added shadows to the bowl in Lemon Lime Twist

Assembled the card:

  • 6 strawberries glued onto the back of the bowl
  • bowl of strawberries and the one remaining strawberry adhered to the 2-5/8″ x 3″ Whisper White CS with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • 2-5/8″ x 3″ Whisper White CS glued onto the 2-3/4″ x 3-1/8″ Night of Navy CS
  • 2-3/4″ x 3-1/8″ Night of Navy CS glued onto the 3-3/4″ x 5″ DSP
  • 3-3/4″ x 5″ DSP DSP glued onto the 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8 Night of Navy CS
  • 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8 Night of Navy CS glued onto the front of the card base (this is the untrimmed card base with a strawberry stamped inside)

Assembled the tealight holder:

  • burnished all score lines of the 2 trimmed card bases with a Bone Folder
  • adhered the 3/8″ section of each card base to the inside of the other card base, to form the four sides of the holder
  • burnished all score lines of the 4-1/8″ x 4-1/8″ Whisper White CS with a Bone Folder
  • cut one score line at each corner to create tabs
  • glued each tab to the inside of the adjacent side to create a tray for the bottom of the holder
  • put the tray inside the holder and glue on all four sides – I found it easiest to drop the tray down into the holder and press it to the bottom, then flip it over and squeeze a little glue between the two pieces.
  • applied Tutti-Frutti Washi Tape around the top and bottom of the holder
  • NOTE: You can just have the four sides. You don’t have to have the bottom tray, but I think it adds stability and shape to the holder.

Assembled the tag:

  • 3/4″ x 3-1/8″ Whisper White CS glued to the blue side of the DSP tag
  • 3 self adhesive sequins applied to the tag
  • ran 5″ of Lemon Lime Twist 3/8″ Mini Striped Ribbon through the hole
  • tied a piece of Whisper White Solid Twine around the ribbon
  • attached tag to the tealight holder with a mini white clothes pin from the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit
