Cute Halloween Meets Pretty Pillow Box Dies

It’s September first and time to start thinking of the arrival of Fall later this month.  And what celebration comes in Fall?  Halloween, of course!  In this post, Cute Halloween meets Pretty Pillow Box Dies.  Quick, easy treat holders are made using the Pretty Pillow Box Dies and the Cute Halloween Designer Series Paper.  The holders are perfect for adding several pieces of small individually wrapped candies.  To embellish the treat boxes, the Cutest Halloween Bundle continues the theme and adds the finishing touch to each treat holder. 

Cute Halloween Pillow Box Treats 

Details and tips for assembling:
  • Cut a 4-1/2″ x 6″ piece of the Cute Halloween Designer Series Paper using the Pretty Pillow Box Die.  
  • Fold and burnish the score lines on the box.  
  • If desired, cut notches with either the edge of a circle punch (I used a retired 1/2″ punch and inserted it along edge of back flaps – see photo) or use a small circle punch to cut notch – just place the die on 1/2 of the paper. 

  • Next, fold the box flat and seal the scallop flap to the front.

  • Next open the pillow box, fill with treats and close the side flaps.
To embellish the treat boxes:
  • Use the Halloween Punch from the Cutest Halloween Bundle to cut images from the Cute Halloween Designer Series Paper.  TIP: cut around one of the images from the patterned  paper, then use a post-it note strip to hold onto the paper while putting into punch to cut the shape. Great way to eliminate wasting paper!

  • Next, stamp the sentiment onto a strip of 1/2″ Basic White cardstock & cut flag end using the Banners Pick A Punch.   Then, layer the stamped sentiment onto a banner cut from a 3/4″ strip of Highland Heather cardstock.  Attach to the top of the pillow box with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Complete by adding the image punched from the designer series paper.

These cute Halloween meets Pretty Pillow Box Dies treat boxes are easy to make!  These treat holders are perfect for making your Halloween treats special.

You’ll find all the materials listed under Project Materials below.  (And if you purchase the Cutest Halloween Bundle, the Pretty Pillow Box Dies & the Cute Halloween Designer Series Paper, you’ll get to select a FREE Sale-a-Bration product through September 30)

Nature’s Harvest Good Luck

For the August card class, the Nature’s Harvest bundle is the feature.  For each class, four projects are made and the Nature’s Harvest Good Luck card is one of the cards.  This is a simple stamping card and proves simple can also be elegant.  The Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper provides a beautiful background for the flowers die cut from the Cork Specialty Paper.  And of course, the Misty Moonlight color scheme is always a winner (in my opinion – LOL).

Masculine Birthday Card

One of the hardest cards for me to create is a masculine birthday card.  And of course, I have lots of males in my family!  Fortunately, Stampin’ Up! is adding more and more stamp sets appropriate for creating male themed cards.  One such is the Hats Off Bundle.

Last month, we celebrated my husband’s birthday and I knew the hat stamp with the coordinating die would be perfect to use.  Though I could have gone in many directions with the hat, I settled upon creating a hat honoring his alma mater – LSU.  The gold and purple colors were easy as the Gorgeous Grape and Bumblebee cardstocks combine perfectly to match LSU’s colors.  For the emblem, I surfed the internet and scaled down the logo.  The card was a success and my husband was surprised that I could create a hat honoring his favorite university.  As for the birthday sentiment, the Biggest Wishes stamp set is one of my favorite “go to” stamps.

Hats Off Bundle

Project Materials:
  • Hats Off Bundle
  • Biggest Wish Stamp Set
  • Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder
  • Card Base: Bumblebee Cardstock (5-1/2″ x 11″; score and fold at 4-1/4″)
  • Layer One: Gorgeous Grape Designer Series Paper (5-1/4″ x 4″).  Comes from the Brights 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper Package.
  • Basic White cardstock: 5″ x 3-3/4″ 
  • Classic Stampin’ Pads: Gorgeous Grape & Bumblebee
  • Gorgeous Grape Cardstock: 4″ x 3″ to cut hat
  • Bumblebee Cardstock: 4″ x 3″ and scrap for hat medallion
  • Sponge Dauber
  • Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine
  • Adhesive (Stampin’ Seal+ or Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive)
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals
Tips:
  • Watch the video below on tips for stamping with the hat photopolymer stamp to achieve a perfectly cut hat. (note, the video is not for constructing the hat, just a tip for using the hat stamp & coordinating die)
  • Stamp the hat on the Gorgeous Grape & the Bumblebee cardstocks using the same color as the cardstock.  Then cut each with the hat die.  Cut the “bill” from the Bumblebee hat and attach to the Gorgeous Grape hat.  
  • Stamp sentiments before texture embossing the Basic White layer.
  • Use sponge daubers to sponge around stitching and brim of hat with the coordinating colors.

Hope the stamping & die cutting tip useful for you!  And, be sure to have fun creating hats for the favorite people in your life (male or female!)

Peachy Day Hand Sanitizer Holder

If you’ve followed some of my previous post, you know I enjoy making special packaging for small gifts.  One of my favorite small gifts to give is the pocket size Bath & Body Works Hand Sanitizers.  For the last Playtime with Paper team meeting, I created the Peachy Day Hand Sanitizer Holder for the B&B Works Peach Mango sanitizer.  Isn’t it wonderful that Stampin’ Up! and B&B Works coordinates their themes?! (LOL)  The original design for the holder is from Erica Cerwin (Pink Buckaroo Designs) and is one of my favorite designs for packaging hand sanitizers.  It’s much simpler than other designs that I have used and is great for also showing the decorative sanitizer label. Thanks to Erica!  

You’ll find project details and an assembly video below the project photo…

Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder

In one of the Christmas in July posts, the Art in Bloom Bundle was the feature set.  Today, I’m featuring the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder from the bundle. A simple stamping but elegant card can be created by using the embossing folder to add texture.  The Fresh Freesia In Color Shimmer Vellum features the texture embossing and creates a beautiful card.  With a few embellishments and a sentiment, it’s a quick and easy card too.   

Bloom Embossing

Card Details:
  • Create a card base using Thick Basic White cardstock. (4-1/4″ x 11″, score at 5-1/2″ and fold)
  • Texture a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Fresh Freesia In Color Shimmer Vellum with the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder.  Attach to card front using Stampin’ Seal along the edge of the vellum.
  • Stamp the hello sentiment from the Biggest Wish stamp set onto a scrap of Basic White cardstock using Fresh Freesia Classic Ink Pad. Use the Tailor Made Tags Dies to cut a sentiment tag. 
  • Embellish the tag using the Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon and add the tag to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Complete the card front by adding a few 2021-2023 In Color Jewels.

See, it doesn’t get much simpler!
