When a new Catalog comes out, I'm always looking for new packaging ideas. I'm not sure how I missed this one, considering it's near the very front of the July-December Catalog. Possibly because it's in with a Christmas Suite of products and I hadn't really started looking at the Holiday stuff yet. The pillbox die is a larger die and it does not fit in our Mini die cut machine. You'll need a full size die cut machine for this one. The … [Read more...] about Pretty Pillowbox
Happy Fri-Yay! I'm particularly happy this Friday since we are heading into a long weekend here in the US. It's always fabulous having an extra day off work. Today I'm sharing a project using one of our Mini Paper Pumpkin boxes. I love these little boxes for gift giving. The decoration for this box is all attached to the wrap around the outside of the box. This allows the person to open the box without ripping apart the pretty … [Read more...] about Harvest Meadow
I promise I won't get carried away with Halloween quite this early, but I had one more treat holder to share. On Monday, I shared the little 3x3" pouches. Today, I'm sharing those fabulous Tombstone Treat boxes in the July-December Catalog. These boxes are pretty good size (3.5 x 5 x 1.25"). Definitely bigger than I thought they would be. I just love the little ghost from the Cute Halloween stamp set and used him on this box as well. The … [Read more...] about Hey, Boo
If you've been in a retail store in the last couple of weeks, you probably noticed Fall and Halloween decor have hit the shelves. Did you know there are only 69 more days until Halloween? I know, it sounds like that is so far away. But, it really isn't. Just think about how quickly 2021 has flown by already. And since it's Monday and I thought we could all do with a treat today, today's project is a small 3x3" treat holder. It holds candy, … [Read more...] about Treat Yourself
Continuing with sharing projects from our recent Demonstrator meeting... today I'm featuring a project designed by Lyndi. I love these cute little critters from the Peekaboo Farm stamp set. This set features five different animals that peek out from behind this wall. Or you could have them peeking out from behind some other object as well. Lyndi's project is actually a small gift box, using one of our Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes. These boxes are … [Read more...] about Peekaboo!
Happy Friday and Happy Valentine's Day! Today is the day we celebrate our love for each other. Typically, Valentine's is celebrated by couples, but why not share the love with your friends? These pillow boxes are just the right size to give your friends a couple pieces of chocolate or a small gift. Last weekend, I made some of these Valentine's treats to pass out at a Demonstrator event that I attended. I love making treat holders … [Read more...] about Happy Valentine’s Day
February is the shortest month of the year and it always seems to rocket by at lightening speed. We are now NINE days from Valentine's Day. Yikes! Have you started your treats? Made your cards? Purchased your gifts? If not, I have the perfect solution for you today... a Valentine Treat Holder. And this treat holder will actually fit a gift card, some candy, and an itty-bitty note card. I decorate this pouch just like I decorate … [Read more...] about Valentine’s Day is Coming
I just realized we are now more than halfway through the month of January and Valentine's is just a few weeks away. I'm trying to get some projects made quickly to share with you. One of my favorite products from the new Occasions/Spring Catalog are these cute heart-shaped tins. These tins are food safe and you can bake in them. I filled mine with candy since I didn't really have time to do any baking this weekend. I decorated … [Read more...] about I Had This Lion Around
