Dinoroar Big Cup Treat Boxes

Today I’m sharing some little treat boxes I made with the new Dinoroar Designer Series Paper and the Dino Days stamp set. It’s the same basic box I shared a few days ago – you can see that post here. It holds a Reese’s Big Cup perfectly. I made these for our Candy Hearts team play date. I thought the playful paper pattern was appropriate for the occasion. (And everyone got their treat – I didn’t eat them all before they got there.)

Here’s what I made:

It’s time for the June 2019 OSAT Blog Hop! This month’s theme is Something Old, Something New. We’re featuring new products used along with products that carried over from previous catalogs. For my projects, I used the new A Little Lace stamp set with the returning Stitched Shapes Dies. The treat box fits a Reese’s Big Cup.

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.)

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

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!

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!

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

ICS Blog Hop 02-2019 – It’s A Love Thing

ICS Blog Hop header

Today for the ICS Love Thing Blog Hop we are sharing projects for wedding, anniversary or Valentines Day. I’m sharing the little gifts I made for some friends of mine for Valentine’s Day. I filled Sweet Cups with Valentine themed peanut M&Ms, and decorated the lids with the Sweetest Thing bundle, How Sweet It Is and Garden Impressions Designer Series Papers, and the Layering Circles Framelits Dies. I used the Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment so it would be in exactly the same place on each one – read on to see how I did that. Super quick and easy!

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Die cut using the Layering Circles Framelits:

  • largest scalloped circle from Melon Mambo card stock (CS)
  • largest plain circle from Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper (DSP)
  • largest plain circle from a scrap of CS (any color) for a Stamparatus template (see below)

Die cut using the Jar of Sweets Framelits:

  • candy jars from a piece of How Sweet It Is DSP

Stamped with the Sweetest Thing stamp set:

  • sentiment in black ink onto the DSP circle
  • I placed the die cut template on the Stamparatus and placed the stamp where I wanted it on all the circles. Then I placed each DSP circle in the template and stamped. This is great for stamping multiples of the same thing, or for stamping in the same place more than once if you didn’t get a good stamp the first time.

  • Melon Mambo CS circle adhered onto the lid of the sweet cup using Tear & Tape

Super Simple Forever Lovely Ghirardelli Square Treat Holder

Today I’m sharing an extremely simple little treat holder. It’s basically a piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) wrapped around a Ghirardelli square, with a die cut heart and stamped sentiment. I made a couple of versions: one with All My Love paper DSP and a Whisper White card stock (CS) heart, and one with Needlepoint Nook DSP and a Very Vanilla CS heart. I stamped the sentiment from the  in Flirty Flamingo ink.

  • die cut heart (inside part with sentiment and the decorative outer part) glued onto the front of the DSP
