Happy Halloween!

Hello! Today I’m sharing my last Halloween project with you, featuring the adorable Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies. I attended an American Business Women’s Association local chapter mixer last evening and rather than bring a bottle of wine, I thought it would be a nice touch to bring treat boxes filled with candies for all of the attendees. They looked very nice placed on either side of the table centerpiece. Everyone oohed and aahed and were delighted when I told them they each got to take one home!

I ended up using mostly retired products because they worked really well and it was an opportunity for me to continue to use them up. I used some of the Monster Bash Designer Series Papers in the current Holiday catalog a as well as papers from Halloween DSP from previous years that had more small-scale prints. I also used Basic Black Bakers Twine and the pumpkin on the tag came from a very old set, Halloween Frights. I tend to keep many holiday sets after they retire.

Here is how I made the boxes.

  • Cut your selected Designer Series Papers into 6″ squares. Cut box shape with die from the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies by running through your die cutting machine. Fold box on all of the score lines.
  • Place candies in open box before closing it up. The box holds 4-5 Hershey Kisses or 2-3 Miniatures or other similar-sized candies.
  • Die cut tags using the oval-shaped die in the set. Stamp a greeting or image on scraps of Whisper White card stock. I stamped the pumpkin image with Pumpkin Pie ink.
  • Thread bakers twine or other ribbon through the tag and then thread it through the box handles and tie in a bow.

Gingham Gala Meets Daisy Delight

Hello! Today I’m featuring another treat box made with the Window Box Thinlits. It has been so dark and dreary for the last few weeks so I wanted to make something bright and cheerful to remind me of spring. What better than the Gingham Gala Designer Series Papers in Daffodil Delight, paired with the Daisy Delight stamp set and coordinating Daisy Punch! I haven’t shown these products some love in a long time so it was fun working with them again.

Here is how I made the box.

  • Die cut two Window Box pieces from Daffodil Delight Gingham Gala paper and put box together using either Tear and Tape or Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  • Stamp two of the daisy images in Daffodil Delight ink onto Whisper White cardstock and punch out with the Daisy Punch. Adhere the daisies together in the center with a Glue Dot. Using a bone folder, gently curl the petals up.
  • Stamp greeting in Lemon Lime Twist ink on Whisper White cardstock and die cut using the oval tag die from the Window Box Thinlits set. I used a greeting from the Eastern Beauty stamp set. Cut a piece of Old Olive Linen Thread and tie through the hole in the tag. Adhere to box. Stampin’ Up’s Linen Thread is one of my favorite threads because it is so versatile. The Old Olive thread is new in the Occasions Catalog and you are going to love it too!
  • Adhere daisies to top of box using a Stampin’ Dimensional in the center. Punch small Daffodil Delight circle with the 1/2″ Circle Punch and adhere to center of daisies. Adhere a Gold Faceted Gem to the circle.
  • Die cut two leaves from Lemon Lime Twist cardstock. I used one of the leaf thinlits from the Beautiful Layers Thinlits set however you can use any leaf thinlit or punch that would fit nicely on the top of the box. Arrange leaves on top of box and adhere.
