Little Treats Meets Banner Year

Happy Friday!  As promised, today I’m sharing the project details from Wednesday evening’s Facebook Live.  The bundles, Little Treats meets Banner Year, combine to create adorable treat holders.  First, thank you to those that watched the presentation!  Despite a few technical glitches, I felt it important to continue and demonstrated the treat boxes below.  Second and good news, I learned how to correct the glitch.  As a result, going forward, my Facebook Lives should be in landscape position.  It’s a learning process and important to not give up but keep trying.  Right?!

Now, on to the projects.  As mentioned in the demonstration, I love making treat holders and the Little Treats Bundle is great for doing so.  The Little Treat Box Dies from the bundle creates an ideal sized treat box when you want to give “a little something”.  Even better, use the Banner Year Bundle and the creative possibilities grow exponentially.  So, what will fit in the treat boxes? In addition to small candies or packages of small cookies, the Bath & Body Works small hand sanitizers fit perfectly.  In this post, I’m sharing 6 different designs combining the two bundles but have other ideas that I’ll share later.  For the projects, the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper provides a wide variety of plaid color combinations making it a perfect selection for making the treat boxes.

Treat Holder

Assembly & Tips:
  • This is a great project for using your scrap cardstock!  Though I’m providing dimensions, in most cases, just grab small pieces from your scrap pile. 
  • Treat boxes can be left open or select coordinating ribbons to tie closed.

For the first step, use the Little Treat Box Die to cut the 6″ x 6″ Plaid Designer Series. Then, assemble the treat boxes.  If desired, add adhesive to the front and back panels to hold the panels fixed against the inside box. 

  • Spider Halloween Tag

From a 1″ x 1″ scrap of Basic Black cardstock, use the spider die from the Little Treat Box Dies to cut a spider.  After cutting the spider, use Clear Wink of Stella to add shimmer to the spider body and add two small Basic Rhinestone Jewels for the eyes.  On a 1-3/4″ x 1-3/4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the Happy, Happy Halloween sentiment from the Little Treats stamp set using Blackberry Bliss Classic Stampin’ Pad.  Then, stamp the web from the Banner Year Stamp Set using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad on the upper corner.  Use the 1-1/2″ circle punch to cut.  Use the stitched and scalloped circle die from the Little Treat Box Dies to cut from a 2″ x 2″ piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock.  Adhere the stamped sentiment circle to the Daffodil Delight scalloped circle and add the spider using a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.  Add to the front of the treat box using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

  • Bat Boo Halloween Tag

Stamp BOO!  (from the Banner Year Stamp Set) using Pumpkin Pie Classic Stampin’ Pad onto a 1-3/4″ x 1-3/4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Cut using the 1-1/2″ circle punch.  Above the word BOO, stamp the Bat (Banner Year Stamp Set) using the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad.  Stamp another bat onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut.  Layer atop the stamped bat on the Whisper White using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Attach to a Scalloped Circle (Little Treat Box Dies) cut from Pumpkin Pie cardstock.

  • Happy Fall Y’all Tag

Cut each end of a 1″ x 3-1/2″ piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Banners Pick A Punch.  After punching the ends, stamp multiple leaves on the right side using Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink Pad – TIP: after inking stamp – “stamp off” onto a scrap piece of paper 2 times before stamping onto the tag.  NOTE:  All stamps for are from the Banner Year Stamp Set.  Stamp the pumpkin using the Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink Pad onto the left side of the tag and also onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.  Stamp the pumpkin stem and the Happy Fall Y’all using Mossy Meadow Classic Ink Pad.  Fussy cut the extra pumpkin and add atop the pumpkin on the tag using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  

  • Happy Thanksgiving Tag

Create the banner tag by cutting a one end of a 1/2″ x 3″ strip of Whisper White cardstock using the Banners Pick A Punch.  Using the Happy Thanksgiving stamp from the Banner Year Stamp Set, stamp the sentiment using Pretty Peacock Classic Stampin’ Pad close to the banner end.   Ink the acorn stamp using Cinnamon Cider. Then, stamp off onto a scrap of paper before stamping beside the sentiment.  Cut a 6″ piece of In-Color Bumblebee Ribbon and form a loop.  Attach the ribbon loop to the treat box and add the banner tag using dimensionals.

  • Be Merry Tag

Create banners: Real Red cardstock (3″ x 1″) and Whisper White cardstock (2-3/4″ x 3/4″).  Stamp “be merry” onto the Whisper White tag using Real Red Classic Ink Pad.  Stamp the Holly using Shaded Spruce Classic Ink Pad.  For the holly berries, stamp using Real Red and then add Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels atop the stamped berries.  Layer the stamped tag onto the Real Red cardstock tag and attach to treat box using dimensionals.

  • HO HO HO Tag

From the Little Treats Stamp Set, stamp HO HO HO Merry Christmas using Real Red Classic Ink Pad onto a 1″ x 2-1/4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Next, cut into the tag shape using the die from the Little Treat Box Dies.  Now stamp the Santa Hat, also from the LIttle Treats Stamp Set, using Real Red onto a 1-1/4″ x 1-1/4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Cut using the coordinating die. Add Clear Wink of Stella to the “fur” rim and “pompom” of the hat.  Attach hat to the corner of the sentiment tag using a Glue Dot.  To highlight the tag, create a belly band by wrapping a 1-1/4″ x 6″ piece of Basic Black cardstock around the assembled treat box.  Run a bone folder along each corner to help crease and form the band.  To seal the belly band,  use a strong adhesive such Stampin’ Seal+ or Tear & Tape.   Add the sentiment tag to the belly band using dimensionals.

I had lots of fun creating the Little Treat Boxes and even more fun, creating a variety of tags for each.  As noted earlier, there are possibilities galore when combining the Little Treats and the Banner Year Bundles.  So, don’t delay and order these bundles so you can start creating fun treat boxes to have for the upcoming seasonal events.  And one last thing, if you want to watch the video click here (remember, it was a learning process! forward thru the first two minutes where I’m attempting to adjust the view.  And no, I won’t be offended if you laugh!)

Here’s my bonus project to coordinate with my September 3D tutorial project.  It’s a “spidery” Halloween card featuring the Magic in this Night Suite. 

Halloween Card

Card Details:
  • Create a card base using Blackberry Bliss cardstock (5-1/2″ x 11″, scored and folded at 4-1/4″).
  • Next, cut a piece of Basic Black cardstock to 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Texture emboss using the Cobwebs 3D Embossing Folder.  After embossing, use a light touch to apply Clear Wink of Stella across the web.
  • Cut two pieces of the 1-1/2″ Metallic Mesh Ribbon approximately 6-1/2″.  Pull and stretch the ribbon to slightly widen.  Then, wrap one of the pieces across the center of the Basic Black layer and adhere.  With the other piece of ribbon, tie around the ribbon attached and wrap to the back of the card.  Use Stampin’ Seal to adhere.  See photo below –
  • Add the “web” layer to the card base using Stampin’ Seal adhesive. 
  • Using the labels dies in the Halloween Magic Dies, cut a piece of the Magic In This Night Designer Series Paper (4-1/2″ x 3″).  NOTE: Place the smaller die inside of the larger die to cut a frame to use on the card interior. 
  • Stamp Happy Halloween from the Hallows Magic Night Stamp Set onto a 3/4″ x 3-1/4″ strip of Whisper White cardstock using Blackberry Bliss Classic Stampin’ Pad.  Add to the center of the small label using Stampin’ Seal and attach to card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Little Treat Box

School’s back in session for my grandson, Alex.  Well, sort of back in session! Currently, all classes are virtual so he’s spending lots of time online.  There’s disappointment that in-person class and meeting new classmates isn’t occurring.  As I did in the Spring, I’m assisting Alex with the new online learning platform while both parents are working.  So, my blog posting schedule is off sync a bit.  Hoping to be back on schedule next week.  To keep Alex’s spirits uplifted, I made a little treat box to give him after one of his online sessions this week.  Using the Little Treats Bundle, the treat box was quick and easy to make.  And it’s the perfect size for a couple of small treats!

treat holder

Additional details:

The Plaid Tidings 6″x 6″ Designer Series Paper is cut using the Little Treat Box Dies from the Little Treats Bundle.  After cutting the treat box, fold along the score lines and tuck the tabs into the slits to form the box.  The front and back flaps can be closed by a ribbon tie or if desired, add a small amount of adhesive along the side to adhere to the box.  To embellish the box, cut two leaves using the Stitched Leaves Dies.  For the leaves to coordinate with the plaid designer series paper, Cajun Craze and a Brushed Metallic cardstock were selected.  Next, stamp the sentiment from the Little Treats Stamp Set using Pretty Peacock Classic Stampin’ Pad onto a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock.  The stitched, scalloped circle in the Little Treats Box Dies is the perfect size for the sentiment.  

Making the little treat boxes couldn’t be simpler!  Even better is how quickly the treat boxes are to make.  You’ll want to order the Little Treats Bundle so you’re prepared to make “a little something” treats for all occasions!

For me, my coordinating project is the perfect card!  I’ve been known to partake in the guilty pleasures all in the same day, especially the past few months! Can you relate?

Nothing's Better Than

Card Details:
  • The card base uses the Misty Moonlight cardstock (4-1/4″ x 11″, scored & folded at 5-1/2″).
  • Next, add Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper (5-1/4″ x 4″) to the card base.
  • With a 5″ x 3-3/4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the words: Coffee, Cookies, Chocolate and Cocktails using Granny Apple Green Classic Stampin’ Pad.  TIP: use the Stamparatus to align and space the words.  Be sure to leave enough space for the images beside the word. Add to the Artistry Blooms layer using Stampin’ Seal.
  • Using scrap pieces of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the coffee cup, the cookie, the chocolate and the cocktail. 
    • For the coffee cup, stamp the cup outline using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad. For the cup interior, use the Misty Moonlight Classic Stampin’ Pad but stamp off onto a scrap of paper before stamping the cup interior.
    • Stamp the cookie and the chocolate outline using Soft Suede Classic Ink Pad and again, stamp off with the ink for the solid interior stamps. 
    • For the cocktail glass outline, use Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad.  And for the beverage in the glass, use Misty Moonlight Classic Stampin’ Pad and stamp off twice before stamping in the cocktail glass outline.  Use Petal Pink Light Stampin’ Blends Marker to color the umbrella and Daffodil Delight Light Stampin’ Blends Marker to color the lemon slice.
  • With the coordinating Love You More Than dies, cut the stamped coffee cup, cookie, chocolate and cocktail.  Add to the card using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • For the sentiment phrases, cut strips of Granny Apple Green cardstock (5/8″ x 1-5/8″  and 5/8″ x 1-7/8″).  Stamp the phrases onto the strips using the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink pad and to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

  • To complete the interior, use a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Then, stamp the phrase using the Tuxedo Black and repeat the process from above for the cocktail glass.

Now for a Sneak Peek of the July 3D projects…

You’ll love the cute 3D project designs!

For my coordinating project, I have a cute gift card holder design for you.  

Playful Pets Gift Card

And here’s the card interior:

Playful Pets Gift Card Interior

Gift Card Details:
  • Refer to the photo below for cutting and scoring to create the gift card holder.  Real Red cardstock is used for the base.

Cutting & Scoring for the Playful Pets Gift Card Holder

 

  • In addition, cut the following: 
    • Real Red cardstock: 2-3/4″ x 4-1/4″ (calling it horizontal panel)
    • Playful Pets Designer Series Paper (DSP): 2 coordinating pieces each 2-1/2″ x 4″; strip for interior 3/4″ x 4″; select the 2 dogs from the DSP and fussy cut
    • Whisper White cardstock: 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Referring to the photos, cut, score and fold the gift card base.  Add a strong adhesive such as Tear & Tape along the sides of the panel with 1/2 circle.  To create the gift card pocket, fold the panel along the score line toward the 5-1/2″ score line.  
  • Next, attach the coordinating Playful Pets Designer Series Paper pieces to the front of the card, to the 2-3/4″ x 4-1/4″ horizontal Real Red cardstock panel and to the interior pocket of the card.  The Stampin’ Seal adhesive is great for this!
For the gift card interior:
  • On the Whisper White cardstock, stamp the dog bowl on the lower right corner of the cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  Color the bowl with the Real Red Dark Stampin’ Blends.  Then, add the fussy cut dog to the left corner of the Whisper White cardstock and use the Stampin’ Seal to add the Whisper White panel to the gift card interior. I love the expression on the dog’s face!
For the card front:
  • Cut a 16″ piece of the black & white baker’s twine from the Playful Pets Trim Combo pack.  Wrap the twine around the card so it can be used to tie the card closed on the right side.  Now, position the horizontal Real Red cardstock panel so that it is centered and aligns evenly with the right side of the gift card base.  Carefully attach to the card ensuring you adhere the baker’s twine and that the adhesive is only on the front portion.  If it extends past the folded gift card portion, it will become attached to the card interior. Optional: add a small amount of liquid glue to the baker’s twine and attach to the back of the horizontal Real Red panel – keep open until it dries.
  • Select the sentiment from the Pampered Pets Stamp Set.  Stamp onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  Next, cut the shape using the Tasteful Labels Dies.
  • Finish the front of the horizontal Real Red panel by adding the sentiment label using Stampin’ Seal.  Then, add the fussy cut dog using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • For the final touch, add a Playful Pets Trinket to the dog’s paw. Tie the twine into a bow to close the gift card.
  • Optional: Add a piece of the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper to the flap on the envelope.

Have fun creating with the Playful Pets Suite Collection!  The variety of dogs and cats offer multiple creative options for pet lovers.

Tulip Gift Bag with Coordinating Tag

In this month’s class, one of the projects created is a Tulip Gift Bag and coordinating tag.  I love it when there is a designer series paper that coordinates with a stamp set and either dies or as with the Timeless Tulips Bundle, a punch.  The bag uses the Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper, which is from of the Coordination Product Release.  The paper is wonderful as it coordinates with multiple stamp bundles.  Naturally, the small gift bag needs a coordinating tag.  The Timeless Tulips stamp set and the tag die from the Bonanza Dies combine to create a perfect gift tag.  Details for creating both are below the project’s photo. 

Tulip Gift Bag and Tag

Creating the Tulip Gift Bag:
  1. From the Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper, cut the tulip paper 6″ x 8″.  Be sure to pay attention to the direction of the tulips.
  2. On the 8″ side score at 2-1/2″, 3-3/4″, 6-1/4″ and 7-1/2″.  Rotate 90° (make sure that the tulips are facing toward the right) and score at 1-1/4″.  
  3. Fold along score lines and trim along score lines up to the 1-1/4″ score line.  Cut and remove the 1/2″ tab. See the photo below – dotted lines are score lines:
  4. Add Tear & Tape Adhesive to the 1/2″ tab, fold over to close the side creating the bag.  
  5. Fold in bottom flaps and seal.  Be sure the small flaps are folded in first and then overlap with the larger flaps.
  6. Pinch together and use a Mini Library Clip to seal.
For the coordinating tag:
  1. With the tag die from the Bonanza Dies to cut a 2-1/2″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock.
  2. Using the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set, stamp two small tulips with Calypso Coral Classic Stampin’ Pad at the top of the tag. (refer to project photo above for placement)  Stamp the large tulip with the same color onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock. Cut with the coordinating Tulip Builder Punch.
  3. Stamp three stems using Granny Apple Green Classic Stampin’ Pad.
  4. Add the large tulip onto the tag using Stampin’ Dimensionals, slightly overlap the smaller tulips.
  5. Use the Tulip Builder Punch to cut a leaf from a scrap of the reverse side (green pattern) of the Pleased As Punch designer series paper.  Adhere to tag under the large tulip with a mini glue dot.
  6. Stamp the sentiment with the Calypso Coral onto a 3″ x 1-1/4″ piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock.  Cut using the shape using the Ornate Frames Dies.  Attach to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  7. Tie a knot bow using 6″ of Granny Apple Green Textured Weave Ribbon.  Complete the tag attaching the bow below the large tulip using a mini glue dot.  

What did we put in the gift bag? A wrapped Rice Krispies Treat Bar!  It fit perfectly.  Be sure to comment below and let me know what you plan to place in your gift bag.

A full list of the project materials is at the bottom of this post. Remember the Coordination Product Release products are only available through the end of this month.  So you’ll want to order the Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper soon!  It’s also while supplies last.
