Meant To Be Mini Gable Treat Boxes

Today I’m sharing some treat boxes I made up for my February Candy Hearts team meeting. We had a small meeting this month so I only made 6. I just love the Lustrous White Mini Gable Boxes (they come in silver, too.) They have a lot of “real estate” to decorate if you want to, but they are just as lovely plain, with their shimmery white surfaces. I took the colors from the All My Love Designer Series Paper, which I had originally intended to use on the boxes, but then changed my mind. I used a Sponge Brayer to color the bottom half of each box, darker at the bottom and lighter at the top. Then I glued on the cut out pieces. I filled the boxes with assorted Dove chocolates, so I’m guessing the Hearts who missed the meeting this month are feeling a little rueful about now.

Be Mine for the January Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop

Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop

It’s time for the Paper Pumpkin Pop-Up Blog Hop for the January 2019 Be Mine kit! I can’t wait to see all the alternate projects the hoppers come up with! For my projects today, I opted to keep it very simple and focus on the Be Mine stamp set from the kit. I made a 3″ x 3″ card perfect for making lots of little classmate valentines, or for tucking into a gift bag, or into your sweetie’s backpack or coat pocket. I also made a little box that holds two truffles – they have strawberry cream ones in pick wrappers for Valentine’s Day!

This month’s Be Mine kit is a-dor-a-ble. It coordinates with the Animal Expedition suite of products in the Annual Catalog. Click on the image below to see all the products in the suite.

All is Bright Stitched Labels Treat Box For You

The Clear Tiny Treat Boxes make gift giving so easy. You can line it with paper, as I have today, or let the gift inside show through. I especially like to do that when the gift is colorful, like M&Ms.  I decorated this one with a tag I made using the Candy Cane Season stamp set and Stitched Labels Framelits Dies.

Takeout Treat Box for Christmas

Today I’m sharing a fun little Takeout Treat Box I made for a group of stampers at my retreat last month. I used the Takeout Thinlits Dies to cut the box out of Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper. I tied a piece of Basic Black Solid Twine around the box, and the finishing touch is a little wooden element I painted with Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint, adhered using a Mini Glue Dot. Easy peasy quick and easy!

 

Here’s what I made:

To You and Yours Card and Box for APPT Blog Hop

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

It’s time for the A Paper Pumpkin Thing (APPT) Blog Hop! This month’s kit is called To You and Yours, and it makes 10 awesome Christmas/holiday cards. I used it to make an alternate card and treat box. I only used items from the kit, except for the following: Garden Green ink pad, one Clear Tiny Treat Box, one piece of Garden Green card stock and two pieces of Striped Burlap Trim. 

The kit comes with card layers in two different plaid designs. The envelopes are lined with a third plaid design, which is what I used on my projects today.

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Garden Green card stock (CS) cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ 
  • plaid paper from the inside of an envelope cut to 3-3/4″ x 5″
  • plaid paper from the inside of an envelope cut to 2″ x 6″
  • card base cut to 2″ x 8″, making sure the original score line is at the 4″ mark, then scoring at 2″ and 6″
  • die cut label cut in half

Stamped with the kit’s stamp set:

  • “For You” in Cherry Cobbler ink onto the right end of a die cut banner
  • “Happy” in Cherry Cobbler ink and “Holidays” in Garden Green ink onto the bottom half of the die cut label

Cut with a 1/2″ Circle Punch:

  • a half moon shape from one end of the 2″ x 8″ piece, to match up with the finger notch of the treat box

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • Garden Green CS layer glued onto the front of a card base
  • plaid paper layer glued onto the Garden Green CS layer
  • the stamped half of the die cut label layered over the other half, to shorten it, and glued onto the plaid layer
  • I had to draw a line so you could see where the two halves of the label overlap:Paper Pumpkin November 2018 To You and Yours kit, alternative projects for APPT Blog Hop, Stampin' Up! #stampcandy
  • burlap trim adhered onto the plaid layer, hiding the seam in the label
  • 5 die cut sprigs bundled and tied together using a piece of Cherry Cobbler trim, then adhered to the plaid layer and burlap trim

Assembled the box:

  • assembled the treat box
  • burnished the folds in the 2″ strip cut from plaid paper, and in the 2″ strip cut from a card base
  • plaid strip inserted into the treat box side to side
  • the other strip inserted into the treat box front to back, lining up the finger notch in the front
  • put the goodies in and closed the lid (I used Hershey’s Kisses. You can see from the photos I got it just a little too full. It’s bulging a little.)
  • 10″ piece of burlap trim wrapped around the box and the ends adhered together, but not to the box, so it can slip on and off
  • 5 die cut sprigs bundled and tied together using a piece of Cherry Cobbler trim, then adhered to the ribbon on top of the box
  • “For You” banner slipped under the ribbon
