LET'S MAKE SOME VALENTINE'S DAY TREAT HOLDERS using the COUNTRY FLORAL LANE SUITE #3- Little Debbie Nutty Buddy Treat Box

 


Happy last week of January stampers.  Valentine's Day is just around the corner and have I got a quick, fun project for you.  Your friends and loved ones will LOVE this great treat box and the treat inside.  Little Debbie treats never disappoint and they have a new version of the Nutty Buddy for Valentine's Day.


As with the last two projects, I used the COUNTRY FLORAL LANE SUITE.  This suite is perfect for Valentine's Day but can be used for many other occasions.  So many beautiful products in this suite.


To create the box, start with a piece of SWEET SORBET card stock measuring 7in by 4-1/2in.  On the LONG side, score at 3/4in, 5-3/4in, 6-1/2in.  On the SHORT side at 1/2in, 1-1/4in, 2-1/2in and 3-1/4in.  The box should look like the template below after folding the score lines and cutting away the excess card stock.


Before assembling the box, adhere two pieces of coordinating DSP, measuring 1-1/8in by 4-7/8in on the large panels of the box.  Using TOMBOW to put the box together.

To create the tag, I used a scrap piece of BASIC WHITE card stock and the 2-3/4in long tag die from the TAILOR MADE TAG DIES.  Then using SWEET SORBET INK, stamp the "I love that we are friends" sentiment and the double hearts image.  To tie the tag to the box, I used a piece of SWEET SORBET baker's twine from the 2022-2024 INCOLOR BAKER'S TWINE PACK.

LET'S MAKE SOME VALENTINE'S DAY TREAT HOLDERS using the COUNTRY FLORAL LANE SUITE #2- Peanut Butter Heart Treat Holder

 For this Valentine's Day Treat Holder Series, I will be using the same suite for all the projects.  For the Peanut Butter Heart Treat Holder as with the first project, I will be using the amazing COUNTRY FLORAL LANE SUITE. 


There are so many great products in this suite, it's so easy to create something beautiful.  For the Peanut Butter Heart Treat Holder, start with a piece of SWEET SORBET card stock measuring 3-1/2in by 9in.  On the LONG side, score at 1-3/4in, 2-1/2in, 4-1/4in and 5in.  Fold and crease on all the score lines.

Before assembling the treat holder adhere two pieces of the coordinating DSP, one measuring 3-1/4in by 1-1/2in and one 3-1/4in by 2in.  Then add TOMBOW to the panel at the end of the strip opposite of the largest panel and fold up to create the space for the treat.

Cut a 5/8in strip of BASIC WHITE card stock and stamp the "Happy Valentine's Day" sentiment on the strip using SWEET SORBET INK.  Adhere it to the treat holder as shown above.

For the embellishment, cut a 2in circle of BASIC WHITE card stock. Then using the coordinating COUNTRY BOUQUET PUNCH and the coordinating piece of DSP, punch out the heart image and two leaves.  Use DIMENSIONALS to place these pieces on the circle then attach it to the treat holder.  Finally, use a piece of the SWEET SORBET twine from the 2022-2024 INCOLOR BAKER'S TWINE PACK. Tie a bow and attach using a GLUE DOT.

Let's Make Some Valentine Treat Holders using the Country Floral Lane Suite- #1 GOODIE BAG WITH A BELLY BAND

 


The new Jan-April 2023 Mini Catalog is AH-MAZING.  It's been so exciting checking out the new product and thinking about future projects.  Being early January, it's time to begin creating some lovely goodies for Valentine's Day.  I loved Valentine's Day as a child.  Decorating an old shoe box and addressing cards to all my classmates.  I still love the holiday, but I now use it as an opportunity to let my friends know how much I love and appreciate them.  The next four blog posts will include ideas for creating cute and yummy treats for your favorite valentines.  

For my first project, I'm sharing this cute GOODIE BAG WITH A BELLY BAND filled with Hershey Chocolate Hearts.  For this and all of my projects, I used products from the COUNTRY FLORAL LANE SUITE.



The suite screams VALENTINE'S DAY, but certainly can be used for any occasion.  The color palate is beautiful and the embellishments are so nice.

To create this GOODIE BAG, start with a piece of STRAWBERRY SORBET card stock, cut at 4-1/2in by 7-1/2in.  On the LONG side, score at 1/2in, 1-1/2in, 4in, 5in.  On the SHORT side, score at 1in.  After creasing the score lines and cutting away excess card stock, your bag should look like the picture below.


Before assembling the bag, adhere two panels of the coordinating DSP cut at 2-3/8in by 3-3/8in on the large areas on the card stock.  Next, adhere the bag together by applying liquid glue to the 1/2in panel and the bottom flaps.  

To create the belly band, cut a strip of PETAL PINK card stock measuring 1-1/4in by 9-1/8in.  Score at 4in from each end.  Fill the bag half full with the chocolate hearts and pinch the top closed. Wrap the belly band around the bag, punch two holes in the top with a 1/8in CIRCLE PUNCH and thread through and tie a piece of the REAL RED RIBBON from the REAL RED & BURLAP RIBBON COMBO PACK.

For the embellishment on the front, start with a 2in BASIC WHITE circle.  Using the COUNTRY BOUQUET PUNCH, cut out a heart and two leaf images from the coordinating DSP.  You can also use the heart and leaf stamps and punch to achieve the same look.  Using MEMENTO BLACK INK, stamp the FOR YOU sentiment in the center of the heart.  Attach the heart and leaves to the 2in circle using DIMENSIONALS.  Add the circle to the belly band using DIMENSIONALS.

To see how the goodie bag comes together, click on the video link below.

Let's start off 2023 with an adorable MINI SLIM LINE CARD using the COUNTRY FLORAL LANE SUITE

 


HAPPY NEW YEAR STAMPERS!!!!  2022 has flown by and here we are......2023.  I'm so excited to share some of the new products available in the 2023 Jan-April Mini Catalog & SALE-a-bration Brochure. For this post, I used the COUNTRY FLORAL LANE SUITE to create some cute MINI SLIME LINE CARDS.  

  


My inspiration for these cards came from CALL ME CRAFTY AL on YOUTUBE and her SHEETLOAD OF CARDS.  She is a card maker who offers monthly ideas for how to make lots of cards in a fun and efficient way.  The link to her YOUTUBE CHANNEL is below.  She also offers Sketch & Supply Lists for all her creations.


For the card base, cut a piece of BASIC WHITE card stock at 6-1/2in by 6-1/4in and score at 3-1/4in on the LONG SIDE.  Cut two additional panels at 2-1/4in by 5-1/4in and 3in by 1-1/4in.  Cut a 2in circle from BASIC WHITE card stock as well.

From the COUNTRY FLORAL LANE DSP, choose two coordinating patterns.  Cut one at 3in by 6in and 3in by 1in and the other at 2in by 5in.

Adhere the three pieces of DSP to their coordinating card stock panels.  Adhere the large piece of DSP on the card front and arrange the other pieces as shown in the picture.  

Stamp the sentiment from the COUNTRY BOUQUET BUNDLE on the 2in circle.  Adhere it to the card front with DIMENSIONALS.  Embellish the circle with the DSP pieces cut using the COUNTRY BOUQUET PUNCH.  Add a LINEN THREAD bow using a GLUE DOT.  Click on the link below to see how the card comes together.




If you'd like a PDF, head to the CALL ME CRAFTY AL YOUTUBE CHANNEL, view the January 2023 SheetLoad of Cards video and download the pdf tutorial.

The products used for this project are available in my online store starting January 5th.

MAKE A SANTA'S MAILBOX TREAT BOX USING THE HANDMADE WISHES BUNDLE



Christmas is around the corner.  I have one more treat box project to share with you.  The SANTA MAILBOX is a great treat box.  It has a magnetic closure and can hold lots of holiday goodies.  It's easy to make and will make any friend or family member smile.

You can really use any holiday Designer Series Paper to make this box.  I used the SWEETEST CHRISTMAS DSP. I also used the HANDMADE WISHES BUNDLE for the embellishment on the front of the box.  Lastly, I used PLAYFUL ALPHABET DIES to put MAIL on the back portion of the treat box.

Start with a piece of REAL RED card stock measuring 8in by 11in.  On the SHORT SIDE, score at 1-1/2in, 6-1/2in.  On the LONG SIDE, score at 3-1/2in, 5in, 8-1/2in and 10in. After creasing the score lines and cutting away the excess card stock, it will look like the template below.


Place TOMBOW on the box flaps and put the treat box together. Add the extra flap panel to the front of the 1in wide flap on the box.  Before adhering, I used the BORDER DIES and cut a pointed edge to the front flap.    If you are making a magnetic closure for the box, place a magnet on the outside of the front flap using a GLUE DOT then cover it with a DSP panel measuring 4-3/4in by 2in and cut using the same BORDER DIE.  Place a second magnet under the flap with a GLUE DOT on it and gently close the flap, allowing the magnet to stick to the front of the box.  Open and press down with your fingers then adhere the DSP panel on the front side. These panels should measure 4-3/4in by 3-1/4in for the front and 1-3/4in by 4-3/4in for the top. Now place TOMBOW on the tabs and put the box 

For the large back panel that you will adhere the treat box to, you will need a piece of REAL RED card stock measuring 6in by 5-1/2in and a DSP panel measuring 5-3/4in by 5-1/4in.  Again, I used the BORDER DIES to round the top of both the panel and DSP before adhering them together and adhering the treat box. To complete the project I used the PLAYFUL ALPHABET DIES to spell out MAIL and adhere them to the top. Click on the link below to the YOUTUBE video to see how the box comes together.

All the products used in this project are available in my online store, some of them are on clearance.  Check it out.


This is my last post for 2022.  I hope you found creative inspiration and made some fun projects yourself.  Don't forget to check back in January when I share all the amazing new products in the JAN-APRIL 2023 MINI CATALOG and SALE A BRATION.

LET'S CREATE FOR CHRISTMAS- WEEK 1 SNOWFLAKE BROWNIE TREAT BOX

 


Christmas is on it's well.  This time of year is my favorite time to create gifts for friends and family.  For WEEK #1, I created this cute little treat box, the SNOWFLAKE BROWNIE TREAT BOX.  I used these yummy Little Debbie treats, available at any grocery store.

I used products from the beautiful LIGHTS AGLOW SUITE.  I used the snowflake die from the CHRISTMAS LIGHTS BUNDLE and the sentiment from the  BRIGHTEST GLOW stamp set



For DSP, I used the GARDEN GINGHAM paper pack, the same paper I used for my HALLOWEEN PROJECTS.  This pack is so versatile, I'm sure I'll be using it for SPRING PROJECTS as well.


For the treat box, start with a piece of MINT MACARON card stock measuring 6-1/8in by 6-3/8in.  On the LONG SIDE, score at 5/8in, 2-7/8in, 3-1/2in and 5-3/4in.  On the SHORT SIDE, score at 5/8in, 4-7/8in and 5-1/2in.  Below is a template of the box after the scored lines are creased and the excess paper is cut away.


Before assembling the box, place the two DSP panels measuring 4-1/8in by 2-1/8in and adhere them using TOMBOW.  

To decorate the box die cut a snowflake using WHITE GLIMMER PAPER.  Add it to the top of the box using DIMENSIONALS.  Stamp the sentiment on a scrap of MINT MACARON and punch it out using the 1-3/8in CIRCLE PUNCH. Place it on top of the snowflake using DIMENSIONALS.  Finally, I added a few pearls from the FESTIVE PEARLS PACK.

Below is a YOUTUBE video that shows how the box comes together.

IT'S FALL YA'LL- Create a cute treat box using the CELEBRATE SUNFLOWERS STAMP SET and DIES

 


The seasons are finally changing,  Halloween is over and we turn our attention to Thanksgiving.  When I got the new 2022-23 Stampin Up Annual Catalog, I noticed that one of my favorite Fall bundle made it from the previous mini catalog into this yearly publication.  I also resurrected an old treat box and gave it a update.  Let's check out the products I used.  The CELEBRATE SUNFLOWERS stamp set and dies are so fun and make amazing projects.



For the treat box, start with a piece of CRUMB CAKE card stock measuring 8-1/2in by 11in.  On the LONG SIDE, score at 3-1/2in, 4-1/2in, 8in, 9in.  On the SHORT SIDE, score at 1in from each end.  The template below shows how the box will look like after the card stock is creased and the excess is cut away.


Cut a CRUMB CAKE belly band measuring 2in by 9-9/16in and score at 2in and 3in from both ends.

Before assembling the box, cut two pieces of DSP measuring 3-1/4in by 6-1/4in and one measuring 1-3/4in by 6-1/4in.  I used paper from the GINGHAM COTTAGE DESIGNER SERIES PAPER PACK.  This paper pack is so versatile.  I've used in last month for my Halloween projects and plan to use it into the Christmas holiday and into the Spring holidays.


Assemble and add the treats inside.  For this project, I found some HONEY ROASTED SUNFLOWER SEEDS on Amazon.  The bag fit in there perfectly, leaving enough room for more treats or a gift card.  The link is below.


To create the embellishment on the front of the box, stamp the sunflower image from the CELEBRATE SUNFLOWERS STAMP SET on a scrap of BASIC WHITE card stock with BLACK MEMENTO INK.  Use CRUMB CAKE, DAFFODIL DELIGHT and PUMPKIN PIE BLENDS to color the image. The flower can then be cut out using the coordinating die.  For the leaves, stamp the leaf image on a piece of PEAR PIZZAZZ card stock using PEAR PIZZAZZ INK.  The leaves can be cut out using the dies as well.

Crease the score lines on the belly band and wrap it around the treat box to the front and adhere using TEAR & TAPE.  Using DIMENSIONALS, place the sunflower on the belly band.  Adhere the leaves to the sunflower using TOMBOW.  

Add a flower outline, created by using GOLD FOIL PAPER and the outline die.  Stamp the "Thanks a bunch" sentiment on a 1/2in strip of BASIC WHITE card stock using MEMENTO BLACK INK.  Attach it on top of the flower using TOMBOW. Finally, add a LINEN THREAD bow using GLUE DOTS.

The video below shows how the treat box came together.
