More dsp treat holders - for just about any occasion


Here are some more ideas for the little treat holder.  These 4 came to my mind, so I just whipped them out and I like them!  Bridal shower (add a rhinestone BLING on that ring!), baby shower, Halloween party, or just any party - any time you'd like to say "Here's a little something to say thanks for coming."

And by "little something", I mean little.  These treat holders are absolutely darling, but they don't hold much.  3 or 4 mini pieces of candy, or a mouth full of M&Ms.  Just a little bit of chocolate to get you through. 

So I'm not going to list all the supplies that I used for these, but I am going to give you some guidance on making your own.

1.  Start with a piece of designer series paper, 4 1/2" x 6 1/2".  The small stacks come this size already, so they are perfect!  If you have to cut 12x12 down, you'll only get 3 from each sheet of 12x12.  That's not very economical in my book, but if you have big enough scraps laying around, you could certainly use those.  That's what I did for these ones.

2.  Along the long side, score at 1", 3", 4", and 6".
Turn it one-quarter turn (to the left or right, doesn't matter), and along the short side, score at 1".


3.  Cut along the solid lines shown in the picture above.  You'll end up with this.  See how the flaps at the bottom are cut?  Add sticky strip along that 1/2" tab. 

4.  Fold your treat box up.  I add another little bit of Sticky Strip on the last piece of the bottom, to hold the bottom together.

5.  Cut a matching piece of cardstock, 3" x 2".  Score at 1 1/2" like this:

6.  You can decorative cut the edges of this piece if you want.  Put treats in, pinch the sides in, and put this top piece on. 

7.  Punch 2 holes in the top - going through all of the layers, and tie ribbon through.  Finish with what ever decorative pieces you want to.

Happy Stamping!

Summer Sunflowers in Summer Starfruit


Summer Starfruit and Gumball Green are still two of my favorite In Colors.  I was sad to see them retire last month, but I'm glad that I have plenty left in my stamp room!

I used pretty much all retired stuff for this birthday card, but they're all some of my favorite things.

Summer Starfruit and Gumball Green inks and papers, Bold & Basic Greetings stamps, and DD Summer Sunflower stamps.

Happy Birthday again Kay!

Kinda Eclectic and Mossy


I love the simplicity of this card.  I LOVE leaves...so this card was screaming to get out of my head.  I love it! I think it would look great in Cajun Craze too...FALL colors.  Yum.

I stamped on Whisper White cardstock, and layered it on top of Very Vanilla this time.  It's just enough difference to make it stand out a little bit.

Stamp the leaves up the side of your card.  I took advantage of the Pre-Cut cards for this card.  These pre-cuts are very handy.  Already cut and scored, and ready for you to stamp on.

For the greeting bit, I stamped that leaf OFF once, so it's a little bit lighter.  Then stamp your greeting full-strength, so it stands out a bit more.  Easy peasy, and so pretty.

Blended Bloom in Hello Honey


I love this new Stitched Satin ribbon that's available in this year's In Colors.  It's a little shiny, and very easy to work with.  I'm also digging this new Large Polka Dot embossing folder!

I've been favoring the Shimmery White cardstock paired with the Blended Bloom stamp.  Whether you color the entire flower, or just parts, it still has just a hint of shimmer that shows through that I like. 

I used the Hello Honey marker to color the center of the flower, and then a few bits of the petals.

Hello There treat bag


Tiny and cute treat bag, made from a 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" piece of paper from one of last year's holiday stacks.  I can't find the original source that I found this on, so I'll put together steps/pictures later today and post. 

I love this new Thick Baker's Twine!  It's much easier to work with, versus the thin stuff.  My fat fingers like it!  :)

Hello There is a Hostess exclusive set.  Select it as part of your freebies, with a $150 order.
