Don't worry, Easter isn't for another few weeks, but it's just the right time to start planning those Easter goodies that you're going to pass out. I had some of the Sweet Little boxes left over from my Valentine's treats and I thought they'd be perfect for Easter too. The boxes come in white so you can use them for just about anything. These easily fit snack size candies. The Easter Friends stamp set has the most adorable little bunny. The … [Read more...] about Happy Easter!
With this gorgeous floral paper from the Sale-a-bration Catalog. The Daffodil Afternoon pattern paper is one of my favorites. I love the big bold patterns in this paper. And the paper works so well with the Daffodil stamp set. Today's project uses one of our tiny clear boxes for treat packaging. The 3x3" clear boxes were originally designed to hold tiny note cards. I love to use them for candy or tiny gifts. You might have noticed those … [Read more...] about I’m Still In Love
Today is the day.. it's Valentine's. The Sweet Talk Suite includes these adorable treat boxes. They are the same size as the old fashioned heart candies. I remember the candies from my school days. They were one of the things that was good at the time, but I've discovered better treats now. But they still have a nostalgic feeling. To decorate the box, I wrapped card stock around the outside and then pattern paper on top of the card stock. I … [Read more...] about Happy Valentine’s Day
Happy Monday! I'm back today with another Daffodil Daydream stamp set and the FREE Daffodil Afternoon paper. This project is one of the mini Paper Pumpkin boxes with a decorated cover.

Even though Christmas has passed, I still have a couple things to share to for the end of the July-December Catalog. First up is this adorable treat holder box and goodies. The gold polka-dotted box makes the perfect little tray to hold a couple sweet treats. This box just fits the plastic 3 x 3" clear boxes along with the Mini Coffee Cups. I decorated the clear box with a wrap around the outside. I used the Warm Wraps die to cut the band … [Read more...] about Friends Like You
Several weeks ago, I found an idea online for a project that looks like a mini hardcover book and inside was a box. I loved the idea of a mini book that was also a gift or treat holder. I can't find the name of the person who first posted it because it was so long ago, but I still wanted to share the project. This is the front cover of the book. I love the owl from the ephemera pack. I don't know why, but it reminds me of Harry Potter. … [Read more...] about Blackberry Beauty
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
