A few weeks ago I shared this adorable Snowman treat-holder here. This treat-holder turned out to be super popular at the last two events I shared it at because this is a super easy idea that is perfect for mass production. I've had a number of requests to share a pattern on how to mass produce this project. I'm a visual person myself, so it really helps if I see it on paper. If someone starts giving me a bunch of numbers verbally, I'm … [Read more...] about Here To Serve You

It's a little something that we can easily do to help brighten their day. We used the coffin boxes for our treat holders this month. The tops of the boxes were heat embossed with versa mark and a spiderweb pattern. Inside, we added monsters. The monsters are on a piece of window sheet and they pop … [Read more...] about Ronald MacDonald House Treats

Did you know you can make a countdown calendar for just about anything? Like counting down to a special birthday, or a special occasion, or a holiday, or even the last day of school. I have several different countdown calendars that I've used through the years. One of my favorites is our vacation countdown calendar. The kids loved this one when they were little because they could see that number getting smaller every single day, which meant we … [Read more...] about EEEK!
There are so many beautiful new products in the Annual Catalog and I'm trying my best to use them as quickly as possible so you can see just how beautiful these things are. If only I had endless amounts of time to play with all the goodies, then I could share everything with you. Today's project uses one of the polka-dot Kraft Pillow Boxes. These boxes are approximately 5x3". These are a great size for party favors, treats, or small … [Read more...] about So Happy

Today’s project is one of my favorites and is so easy to make. This is called a “diaper fold” treat holder. There are four simple steps to make this packaging. Since I do so much better with visual images, I’m including a diagram on how to do the folds.Using the images … [Read more...] about Father’s Day is Around the Corner
