Today I have a quick “Treat” to share with you. I have decorated another of the Love You Always Treat Boxes. These boxes are wonderful. They are on page 11 of the Mini Catalog. You get 10 of them for $9.00. They are a good size and are Food Safe! What a deal!
I paired the treat box with the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper from Sale-A-Bration and the Sweet Strawberry Bundle from the Mini Catalog. These all are a perfect match up.
I began my project deciding on the paper. I love this green plaid. (There is also a red plaid in the pack!) I cut the DSP to 3 3/4 wide and wrapped it around the box, creasing the corners as I went. I left enough at the end to overlap about 1/2″ . I did not adhere the paper to the box but just a tight fit and adhered to itself. Although you could adhere to the box if you wish.
The layer is from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I believe this was the third largest die. I think it fits perfectly. For the stamping, I stamped off Granny Apple Green to give a softer look. I colored the leaves with Light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend and the flowers with Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. I had to add some Rhinestones to the flowers ,and one extra, for a touch of bling!
The strawberry is stamped three times The fill color is Real Red Ink with Memento Tuxedo Black as the outline and the seeds. I like having the black seeds. I punched out all three berries using the Strawberry Builder Punch. Each berry was then folded in half long way with the color to the inside. I adhered the three together and then added them to the box using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I only punched one stem, folded it in half, and added it to the berry with a glue dot.
Here is a picture of the open box.
The candies are leftover Valentine treats. For me the little hearts on the wrapper could be seeds from the strawberries. And Yes, I have a good imagination, LOL!!! I punched a leaf from the Strawberry Builder Punch for each of the candies. They are adhered with just a Glue Dot.
I have made a similar box using the Snail Mail Suite of products. You can see that box decorated by clicking HERE. You can see on that link how much the box will hold. It has candy and a Bath & Body Hand Sanitizer.
Sale-A-Bration is winding down. There is only a little over a week left. Just an idea…..The Sweet Strawberry Bundle along with the two pairs of Stampin’ Blends I used today, will get you to the $50.00 mark. It is not enough to get the paper I used, sadly. It is part of one of the $100.00 bundles. But it will get you one of nine other FREE items.
Thank you for stopping by today. I will share the matching card for today’s project on Monday. I hope you have an enjoyable weekend.

I enjoy making little 3D items to give to friends for various occasions. This year at Christmas I did a couple of more detailed projects. One is a Stand Up Calendar / Post It Note Holder. I had received one from a friend at our last in person Stampin’ Up! Event and have had it on my desk. Every time I used it, I would think that I needed to make some of those. Finally, the time was right.
Above is a photo of the closed notepad and you can see I do have the calendar. I will say that my Christmas gifts did not have the calendar, as they were delayed in arriving. (Imagine that with the crazy mail this holiday!) So those had a stamped sentiment as the focal point.
Here is the stand up and open view.
For this version of the notepad, I used the Sweet Strawberry Bundle along with the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper. The paper is part of the Sale-A-Bration Berry Blessings Bundle. They are a great match! I do love the contrast of the two different paper pieces I used.
For an added touch to the top of the notepad part, I stamped and punched a couple of strawberries. I used Cherry Cobbler ink as the outline of the strawberry with Flirty Flamingo as the inside filler. I paired the softness of the Flamingo with Granny Apple Green to keep my cheery strawberry theme going.
I have not done a video for this because when I looked, I found a couple of them. I do have the measurements and instructions for you. It is really quite simple.
Base is 4 1/4 X 11, scored at 3 and 5 1/2
Card stock same as base cut to 4 1/4 X 5 1/2
DSP is 4 X 5 1/4 (need 2 of those)
Pen holder is 3 X 2, folded in half and secured together and then secured beneath the calendar
Notepad cover is 3 1/8 X 4 1/8, score on 4 1/8 side at 5/8 and 1
Calendar layers are 3 1/2 X 2 3/4 and 3 1/4 X 2 1/2 (I used Taylored Expresseions calendars, yours may be a different size)
Thank you for stopping by today. Please come back tomorrow for another new project.

I have been working on finishing my Christmas Cards, Gift Tags, and gifts for pharmacy and doctor offices. I have a huge mess in my craft room. I was supposed to be finished with everything by now, but life gets in the way sometimes!
A friend loves my projects and I usually give her some gift tags each year. So that is my project to share with you today. And Yes, I have already given them to her. I wouldn’t want her to be as late as I am in wrapping gifts! 🙂
I kept the tags very simple. Although I think they are pretty cute. My favorite part is the tag itself. It is the tag from the Die Set North Pole Wonder. I will hold on to this set simply for that tag! I paired it with the tree from the Merry Moose stamp set. It is stamped in Just Jade Ink. The sentiment is a favorite little one, little in size I mean. It is from the Festive Post stamp set.
I finished the tag with the star from the All The Trimmings Embellishments. I used some old White Baker’s Twine to corral the ribbons. I used the Bumblebee In Color Ribbon and left them not tied for ease in attaching to the packages in whatever way she wanted. I can tell you that trying to gather those ribbons together to make them look even a little neat was not in the least easy!! They did not want to cooperate at all.
I couldn’t simply give the bundle of tags! So I created a little box to slip them into.
The little box is made from Just Jade card stock with Tis The Season Designer Series Paper on the front and back. I stamped the same little sentiment on a scrap of Whisper White and punched it out using the Pine Tree Punch. I also added the same little star on the tree. There are ten tags in the little box and it is pretty small.
Here are the measurements for the little box:
card stock cut to 4 7/8 X 3 1/2
score on the 3 1/2 at 1/2″
score on the 4 7/8 at 1/4, 2 3/8, 2 5/8, 4 3/4
Fold and burnish the score lines.
with the 1/2′ score line at the bottom. Cut up each line to that score line.
Cut out the two tiny pieces.
Adhere the sides and the bottom.
The DSP is cut 2 wide by 3 1/8 tall
Adhere the DSP before putting the box together
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you are enjoying this time of year and have a minute to stop back in tomorrow.

I began today’s project making a treat box from the Little Treat Box Dies. Of course after the box, I decided it needed a matching card. So I have a two for one to share with you today.
I will begin with the Treat Box. It is die cut using the Little Treats Dies and Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper. I wanted to use this paper because it is too pretty to put away now that the Fall season is about gone. The Little Treat Die is so simple to make a box with. It is one piece that is pre-scored and simply folds into place.
For the Treat box and the card, I stamped a tree from the Plaid Tidings stamp set. I used Cinnamon Cider Ink on Mint Macaroon card stock. For the box, I stamped two trees and folded them down the center. They were then glued together and then to Gold Foil label and onto the box. All of the trees have been touched up with Wink of Stella to give them a bit of frosty looking shine.
For the card, I used one stamped tree with the same Gold Foil label. The label is the Everyday Label Punch. I wanted as much of the pretty DSP to show as possible so I played around with the layout of the tree and the sentiment. I finally decided on this vertical layout. I used the Metallic Edge Ribbon as the anchor. The gold edging matches the gold in the DSP. And the ribbon would work on both the card and the box.
The sentiment is from the Merry Hello stamp set. I cut the “A Merry Hello” and the Gold Foil layer using the Layering Circles. For the final Gold touch, I added some of the Gold Gilded Gems.
The card layers are 4 1/4 X 11, scored and folded at 5 1/2. The Gold Foil layer is 4 X 5 1/4, and the DSP layer is 3 7/8 X 5 3/8.
Thank you for stopping in today. I hope you like this little duo and will give the Little Treat Box a try. They are the best yet, in my opinion, of the treat holder dies!

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team’s theme is “Tag, You’re It” – tags or 3D projects to get you inspired for the upcoming gift season. We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
I decided to go with a Tag and a 3D Project. I made a tag and a box that holds a Bath & Body Hand Sanitizer. And who doesn’t need that right now!
This is the box which holds the hand sanitizer. I adapted it from The Paper Pixie’s Tombow Glue Box, with Julie’s permission. The tree is using the beautiful Green Foil. The “garland” is from the Peace & Joy Stamp set. I used my paper snips to trim the two words, they are separate anyway. I decided they would work perfectly for the garland on the tree. Plus they coordinate with the Bronze Star.
You can see from this photo how the front flap tucks behind the top of the Christmas tree to close. The bottle fits easily inside of the box. You can also see the White Polka Dot Ribbon. LOL!! It cannot be seen in the first picture due to the white background. There is actually a bow on the top of the lid.
And here is the matching Tag. Both items use Cherry Cobbler card stock along with the Tis The Season Designer Series Paper, as well as the White Polka Dot Ribbon. Also…..the “bronze” or metallic look to both of the “garlands” stamping is not a metallic ink. It is the Cinnamon Cider Ink!! That is an amazing find to me.
The garland phrase on this tree is from the Warm & Toasty stamp set. I have actually made a dozen of these tags for a friend to use. I added a white layer, the same size as the DSP layer on the front, to the back with a “To / From” stamp. She fell in love with my prototype for this. That was nice!
I hope you like today’s projects. I would love it if you left a comment. And I have added the template and measurements for the box just below. Then please continue on to the Blog Hop Lineup.

Until then, please stay safe and have fun in your craft space.
I used to love making table favors and place settings cards for holiday meals. Now we tend to not get together with as many people at one time, so I haven’t made these in a while. Today I am bringing them back and with a bit of a twist.
This project is a combination of place setting and utensil holder. I did not add a name, but I would place a smaller layer in the center of the DSP with the person’s name. And before I get started on these particulars, I want to say that I have found a Wonderful Thing!!!! The sentiment is stamped with the Cinnamon Cider Ink. To me anyway, it looks like it is stamped in a metallic ink. I have used this ink with Bronze and Gold and it matches perfectly. I think that is a great find! Be sure to try it yourself.
Ok, now on to the directions. The holder is actually the same size as a pull out card that I have made. And if you were purchasing the utensil holders, they are a tad narrower. But I like having the extra bit of room because the card stock doesn’t flex as well as some of the fabric holders do.
The sweet sentiment is from the Country Home stamp set. I love every stamp in this set. The base of the project is Mint Macaron and cut to 4 1/4 X 11 and is scored at 5 1/2 and 10. Fold and burnish both folds. The small 1″ fold, folds to the outside and I have it taped down. On the long end, I rounded the corners with the Detailed Trio Punch.
The layers are Brushed Metallic card stock (OMG this paper is beautiful!!!) and the Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper. I stamped on Very Vanilla with the Cinnamon Cider Ink and punched the ends with the Lovely Label Punch.
I had purchased some beautiful napkins last year after Thanksgiving for just such a project. And I have No Idea where they are!!! So I used a piece of old DSP, which is actually similar to the napkins, to represent the napkin. Also, by having a bit more room inside the fold, I have room for a little treat. I added a Merci Chocolate in the center. The pretty foil wrapping on those matches the theme as well.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s blog hop. I have directions for today’s project just below. And the supplies are listed at the very bottom of the post.
base is 4 1/4 X 11, scored at 5 1/2 and 10. Fold and burnish the scored lines.
Fold the small section to the front and secure with tape or glue.
The sentiment layer is 3 3/4 X 3/4 for the foil and 3 3/4 X 5/8 for the Vanilla
Use the Lovely Label punch to punch each end of the sentiment.
The front layers are 4 X 3 3/4 and 3 3/4 X 3 1/2
Place the layers on the front and the sentiment.
Add Tear & Tape to the inside edge of the front section. Place the tape against the edge of the paper.
Lay your silverware inside the pocket and then adhere the sides. Otherwise it is extremely tight and everything will not fit inside.
