I just dropped this pattie in the box for the photo, but I find it fit, and looks, better if you tuck the side pieces of the wrapper underneath it:

Gifts from OnStage Charlotte

Today I’m sharing with you three adorable treats I received from friends and fellow demonstrators last weekend at Stampin’ Up!’s event called OnStage. There were multiple locations around the world, and we attended the one in Charlotte, NC. I didn’t participate in any swaps this time, but these three ladies brought gifts for everyone on the team. I’m thrilled to get to share these with you today! (A couple of them got a little squished on the way home, so they may not look quite as good here as they did when I got them.)

 

gifts from Charlotte OnStage made by Jackie Beers, Julie Dimatteo, and Sandra Cornejo #stampinup

 

S

This one was made by Jackie Beers. It contained a small Hershey bar. It’s based on one made by Julie DiMatteo, and I’ve included the link to her instructions below.gifts from Charlotte OnStage made by Jackie Beers, Julie Dimatteo, and Sandra Cornejo #stampinup

This adorable little thing holds a peppermint pattie, and was made by the adorable Paper Pixie herself, Julie DiMatteo. I’ve included the link to her instructions below.gifts from Charlotte OnStage made by Jackie Beers, Julie Dimatteo, and Sandra Cornejo #stampinup

S

Wow, this one, made by Sandra Cornejo, is amazing! It has four little sections inside to hold small treats – this one came with Hershey’s Kisses. I haven’t found the instructions to this one yet, but I’ll keep looking.gifts from Charlotte OnStage made by Jackie Beers, Julie Dimatteo, and Sandra Cornejo #stampinup gifts from Charlotte OnStage made by Jackie Beers, Julie Dimatteo, and Sandra Cornejo #stampinup gifts from Charlotte OnStage made by Jackie Beers, Julie Dimatteo, and Sandra Cornejo #stampinup

Here are the instructions to Jackie’s box. She modified it a bit to close by tucking in the flap, instead of using a magnet closure. I believe she said she had to trim a little bit off the flap so it wasn’t quite so long.

Here are instructions to Julie’s little treat holder. She made a lot of these for OnStage!

  • “Happy Birthday” in Bermuda Bay ink onto a blue label

  • yellow banner glued onto the front of the card base
  • notched red striped piece glued over the yellow banner
  • sentiment adhered onto the striped piece using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • light blue “9” glued onto a dark blue “9”, offset just a little bit

  • glued onto

Assembled the box:

  • striped pieces glued onto the 8″ piece of card base, lining up the score lines (each striped piece covers 2 sections of the card base piece)
  • notched one end of the 8″ strip using a 1/2″ circle punch (Actually I used the 3/4″ punch because the 1/2″ was upstairs and I was too lazy to go get it. But the 1/2″ is the right size.)
  • 8″ strip inserted into the box, front to back, lining up the punched notch with the finger notch in the front of the box
  • 6″ strip inserted into the box side to side
  • put treats inside and closed the box

Sliding Mint Boxes for a Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Happy St Patrick's Day #stampcandy

 

Today is the March Candy Hearts Team Meeting, and I’m sharing with you some little treat boxes I made for the Hearts. Each sliding box holds 5 Andes Mints… because they’re green… for St. Patrick’s Day. I used the Amazing Life stamp set (which contains a clover image,) Call Me Clover (of course) card stock and ink, and Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper. I used two different patterns of the Designer Series Paper that have a lot of Call Me Clover in them. Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper © Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

While I made these for St. Patrick’s Day, the sentiment could easily be used to celebrate a new job, a move to a new city, or any new adventure.

One more thing, before I get to today’s project. Today is my sister Judy’s birthday. Yep, she’s a St. Patrick’s Day baby. 

Happy Birthday to the best sister ever!

S

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Call Me Clover card stock (CS) cut to 7-3/4″ x 8-1/8″, then scored along all four sides at 1/2″, 1-3/8″, 1-7/8″, and  2-3/4″
  • NOTE: On certain projects, I find it easier to score this way, starting at each of the four corners, than to score along the whole side at once. I think it make the sides more symmetrical.
  • also scored along both 7-3/4″ sides at 2-7/8″ and 3-3/8″, only down to the second score line
  • Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 2-11/16″ x 6-3/4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 2″ x 2-3/8″
  • NOTE: I actually used the Simply Scored tool for all the scoring, since there was so much of it, and I was making so many boxes.

Cut using Paper Snips:

  • removed yellow areas in the diagram belowtemplate for Good Luck Andes Mint boxes made by Candy Ford using the Amazing Life stamp set and Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

Stamped with the Amazing Life stamp set:

  • sentiment and clover on Call Me Clover ink onto the Whisper White CS

Assembled the sliding box:

  • burnished all the folds in the box and cover with a Bone Folder
  • flaps on the two longer sides rolled inward to form the sides, and the outermost flap glued onto the bottom of the box
  • flaps on the two shorter sides folded inward to form the sides, and the outermost flap glued onto the bottom of the box. The skinnier center part goes between the two long sides, and the diagonal cut lies on top of the long side to create a mitered corner look. I also put a little spot of glue under the diagonally cut section so it would stick to the top of the adjacent side.
  • cover wrapped around the box, and pinched around the corners, then folded and burnished on the pinched areas.
  • cover wrapped around the box again and the ends glued together, making sure it’s snug, but also loose enough to slide on and off.
  • stamped piece glued onto the top of the box cover
