Since Easter is quickly approaching, I want to share a simple Easter Treat Holder that you can make last minute. This is the final project from this month’s class. Don’t you think it’s perfect to highlight the bunny’s face on the Hershey’s Easter Candy? What’s great about the project is you can easily alter it to hold any small, flat candy bar.
The treat holders feature the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper. Use the Bitty Blooms Punch Pack to embellish with flowers. Below are details on recreating the project.
- Granny Apple Green Cardstock: 9-1/2″ x 2″ score at 4-1/2″ & 5″ and one piece 3-1/2″ x 1″ score at 1/4″ on each side then cut in half at 1-3/4″ so you will have 2 pieces 1-3/4″ x 1″
- Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper: 1-7/8″ x 4-3/8″
- Cardstock to match Designer Series Paper: 2″ x 3″
- Scraps of Whisper White for sentiment and desired colors to punch small flower embellishments. The colors used above are Berry Burst, Blueberry Bushel, Daffodil Delight & Grapefruit Grove.

Stampin’ Up! released the retiring list today and it’s time to say Good Bye to retiring favorites. To see the list of items, click here. Be sure to act quickly as items are available while supplies last. Items such as the retiring In-Colors and ink refills are usually the first items that sell out. It’s a great time to order retiring embellishments too. A long time favorite stamp set is also retiring – Lovely As A Tree. If you don’t have this classic stamp set, you’ll want to be sure to add it to your collection.
But as all things come to an end, new will be coming our way on June 4th. While at conference this weekend, I received the catalog early and WOW – love the new products. Over the next few weeks, I’ll share some of the products that demonstrators attending were able to order early. Below is the catalog…notice all the pages that I have flagged?! Told you I love the new products and look forward to the date that I can order more items from the catalog.
Be sure to follow me on Facebook and watch my Facebook Live this week. I will be demonstrating a quick and easy Easter Treat project.
Thanks for stopping by today!
Ready for another treat project from the All About Easter class? Today’s post, Gingham Treat Basket, highlights the Gingham Gala 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper. There are various versions of this basket style on Pinterest. I do not recall where I saw the dimensions used but it’s a simple basket that is fun to embellish. I love the look of the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper (DSP) and selected the Lemon Lime Twist color for the basket. To embellish the basket, the Daisy Punch was used to punch multiple daisies from the Daffodil Delight Gingham Gala DSP. The color of the Gingham Gala DSP are perfect for Spring. Keeping with the theme, a pick featuring the Fable Friends bunny with a crown of flowers adds the finishing touch.
Creating the basket:
- Score one page of the Gingham Gala at 2″ and 4″, rotate and score again at 2″ and 4″.
- On one side, cut along the score lines just to the point where the score lines intersect. Rotate paper 180° and again, cut along the score line to the point where the score lines intersect.
- Use a bone folder to burnish along the score lines.
- Cut a 1/2″ x 8-1/2″ piece of coordinating cardstock to use as handle.
- Form basket by pulling the cut pieces to the middle of the 4″ panel on each side and overlapping. Place handle atop the pieces and staple to secure.
- Optional: To cover the staples inside of the basket, punch a 1″ circle punch of the gingham paper and adhere with adhesive over the exposed staples.
Embellishing the Basket:
- Punch four daisies from the Daffodil Delight Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper.
- Sponge the edges of each daisy using Daffodil Delight Classic Stampin’ Pad and a sponge dauber.
- Use a bone folder to curl the daisy petals. Layer two daisies and connect with a stampin’ dimensional. Repeat with other daisy petals (embellishment is on both sides of basket)
- Create daisy center using the Bitty Blooms Punch Bundle to cut a flower from a scrap of Daffodil Delight cardstock. Attach using a mini glue dot. Add a Glitter Enamel Dot to the center.
- Cut leaves from Lemon Lime Twist and Vellum Cardstocks using the Foliage Frame Framelits Dies.
- Attach leaves to back of the daisy using mini glue dots.
- Use Stampin Dimensionals to attach a daisy to each basket side at the handle.
Making the Bunny Pick:
- Stamp the rabbit from Fable Friends Cling Stamp Set using Jet Black Stazon Ink onto Shimmery White cardstock.
- Color using an Aqua Painter, Crumb Cake and Lemon Lime Twist inks.
- Fussy cut the rabbit using paper snips.
- Create a crown of flowers by punching three Daffodil Delight flowers (two are solid cardstock and one is Gingham Gala DSP) using the Bitty Blooms Punch Bundle. Use leaf in Bitty Blooms to punch leaves.
- Attach the flowers and leaves to the rabbit using mini glue dots, slightly cupping the flowers to fit.
- Add a basic rhinestone jewel to the center of each flower.
- On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock, stamp Enjoy (from Dear Doily) using the black ink. Punch with 2″ circle punch so that the word is to the left side of circle with room to add the bunny.
- Punch a 2-1/4″ circle of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock to use as base for pick. With multipurpose adhesive, glue pick to the base. (since I wanted a pick slightly longer than a regular toothpick, I shortened a four-inch bamboo skewer to approximately 2-3/4″ by breaking off a piece from the non-pointed end)
- Attach the Enjoy circle to the pick base using stampin’ dimensionals.
- Finish by adding the bunny. The treats and paper shreds help to hold pick in place.
Thanks for stopping by! I am attending OnStage in Charlotte this weekend and get a sneak peak of the upcoming Annual Catalog along with some of the new products. So be sure to check in next week as I’ll be sharing details. Have a great weekend!
Happy Monday! Today the monthly card class featured All About Easter projects. The group had fun making cards and several treat holders. Since Easter is approaching in a couple of weeks, I’ll be sharing the projects in the next several posts. The first of the projects is an Easter greetings card. Have you seen the bunny from the Fable Friends Cling Stamp Set in the Occasions Catalog? The bunny is so cute so I knew he had to be included in some of the projects. The bunny also reminds me of the bunny from the Beatrix Potter books. The Tufted Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder adds dimension to the background layer.
Create the card base using Crumb Cake cardstock. Next, texture emboss a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Grapefruit Grove cardstock using the Tufted Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Attach to the card base using adhesive.
Stamp the bunny from the Fable Friends Cling Stamp Set onto Whisper White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Then color the bunny body using both Crumb Cake Light and Crumb Cake Dark Stampin’ Blends Markers. Highlight the center of the ears and the bunny abdomen using the Petal Pink Light Stampin’ Blends Marker. Notice the bunny’s jacket? The jacket area of the bunny stamp is stamped onto a scrap of Grapefruit Grove Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper. After stamping, use paper snips to “fussy cut” the jacket. To add grass around the bunny, use Granny Apple Green Classic Stampin’ Pad and the grass stamp from the Fable Friends stamp set. Cut using the large oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. Use the large oval die from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies to cut Crumb Cake Cardstock. Layer the bunny oval onto the Crumb Cake Oval.
Using the Memento Tuxedo Black Ink pad to stamp the sentiment from the stamp set onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock. The sentiment tag uses the Detailed Birthday Elements Framelits Dies which are now discontinued. However, it’s easy to create a tag using an oblong die such as in the Storybook Scene Thinlits. Use a handheld circle punch to create the circle to add the Silver & Petal Pink Baker’s Twine. Add the Bunny Oval to the tufted layer on the card base. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the greeting. Complete the card by adding Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins and Basic Pearls to embellish the card.
