Dino Days Treat Holder

Do you have a youngster (or oldster!) who likes dinosaurs?  If so, this Dino Days Treat Holder is perfect for when you want to give them a “little something”.  The Clear Tiny Treat Boxes are perfect for tiny treats and fun to decorate.  It’s been great fun creating different projects using the Dinoroar Suite Bundle and this Dino Days Treat Holder is no exception.  

Dino Days Clear Mini Treat Box

Here’s a side view:

Project Details:
  1.  Stamp dinosaur body from the Dino Days Stamp Set using Pool Party Classic Stampin’ Pad onto Whisper White cardstock.  Also, stamp the spikes using Pretty Peacock Classic Stampin’ Pad onto Whisper White cardstock.  Cut the pieces using the coordinating Dino Dies.  Attach the spikes to the dinosaur body using mini glue dots.
  2.  Using Mango Melody Classic Stampin’ Pad, stamp the sentiment onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Cut using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  TIP:  Position the die so that the sentiment will be closer to the right edge of the cut shape.  This will leave room to add the dinosaur.  Add the Dinosaur to the left side of the sentiment label using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  3. With Old Olive Classic Stampin’ Pad, stamp the fern fronds onto a scrap of Old Olive cardstock.  Stamp 3 times.  Cut using the coordinating die from the Dino Dies.
  4. Cut along the edging on an approximately a 2″ piece of 3/8″ Denim Ribbon.  Then fray the ribbon into threads.  Use Snail Adhesive to attach the frays to the sentiment piece (refer to project photo).  With mini glue dots, layer the 3 ferns and add to the top right edge of the sentiment label behind the frayed ribbon.  Embellish with a Dinoroar Enamel Shape.
Assemble the Box:
  1. Put the Clear Tiny Treat Box together.  TIP:  Don’t forget to remove the plastic film that protects the box.
  2. To create a liner for the box, cut a 6″ x 2″ piece of Mango Melody cardstock.  Score at 2″ and 4″ and insert into treat box.  For the Dinoroar Designer Series Paper, cut two pieces:  2″ x 4″ (score at 2″) and 2″ x 2″ piece (two pieces are cut so that the print goes in the same direction when inserted into the treat box).   Use a mini glue dot at the top of the designer series paper to hold it in place.
  3. To complete the treat box, attach the sentiment label to the box using Stampin’ Dimensionals and add your treat!  TIP:  For ease in opening the box, put the label on the box back so that the box lid opens from the back. This also keeps the sentiment label in place.

Craft Fair Project

Happy Friday!  Hope you have plans for a fun and relaxing weekend.  Today I am sharing a project from last year’s 12 Weeks of Christmas newsletter.  Newsletter recipients received a variety of holiday project and gift ideas.  This project, stamped tile coasters,  is perfect as a craft fair project and is not holiday specific.  The coasters are stamped with the flower from the Beautiful Day stamp set.   We’re approaching the time of year when crafters are planning projects for fall and winter craft sales.  This is a quick, easy project and would be great for a craft fair or just as a gift.  Even better, you can make multiple sets at the same time.

Stampin’ Up! Project Materials:
  • Beautiful Day Stamp Set (#151257)
  • Stazon Jet Black Pad (#101406)
  • Stazon Jet Black refill (#102566)
  • Stampin’ Blends: Flirty Flamingo Light (#147031); Rich Razzleberry Light (#144584); Real Red Light (#147933); Highland Heather Light (#146881); Shaded Spruce Light (#147936); and Mango Melody Dark (#147983)
Other Materials:
  • 4″ x 4″ marble tumbled tiles
  • adhesive backed felt or adhesive backed cork for bottom of tiles
Directions:
  1. Wipe tiles with damp cloth to remove dust. Allow to dry.
  2. Ink stamp with Stazon Jet Black – be sure that ink pad is well inked.
  3. Stamp the image onto the tile using even pressure and hold for approximately 30 secs. to ensure that ink adheres to the tile.
  4. Allow to dry for approximately 5 minutes before coloring with Stampin’ Blends.
  5. Select desired Stampin’ Blends colors and color image. (refer to tips below before coloring)
  6. Put tiles into 250F oven for 20 minute (note: I put in oven, turned it off and left in overnight). Let cool before applying the adhesive tabs to bottom of tile.

TIPS:  Since Stazon ink is not recommended for use with Stampin’ Blends below are tips for coloring onto the tiles using the Blends:

  • Keep a paper towel handy to wipe the tip of the Blends often to remove any Stazon that may transfer to the tip of the Blends, especially with light colors.
  • In small areas (such as flower center), stipple with the tip of the Blends to color. Do not brush the
    image to color.
  • For the larger sections of the stamped image, use short strokes to color and color just up to but not over the Stazon ink.
  • Remember to wipe blends tip on paper towels.

Garden Lane Lotion Holder

At last month’s Luv 2 Stamp meeting, one of the make ‘n take projects included a Garden Lane Lotion Holder.  Fellow team member, Cindee Wilkinson, created the team project and selected the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper for the project.  The holder is wonderful!  A 1-oz. tube of the Bath & Body Works hand lotion fits perfectly inside of the box.  However, it is of ample size to hold other small gifts or treats.  If you participate in craft sales, this is a must project for you to add to your list!  It takes time to create and you can decorate it with a variety of tags.

Materials:

  • Garden Lane Designer Series Paper (4-1/2″ x 6″)
  • Delightful Tag Topper Punch
  • Whisper White Cardstock (scrap for tag and for 1″ circle )
  • Stitched Nested Labels Dies
  • Garden Green Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • Pressed Petals Washi Tape
  • Embossing Buddy
  • 3/4″ circle punch
  • Perennial Essence Floral Center
  • Mossy Meadow cardstock (scraps for leaves)
  • Magnolia Memories Dies (for leaves dies) or use the Leaf Punch
  • Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set 
  • Tags and More Accessory Kit (Copper Clip)
  • Mint Macaron 1/4″ Textile Ribbon
  • Adhesives: Tear & Tape, Mini Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals

You’ll find the directions for assembling the Garden Lane Lotion Holder on Cindee’s blog, Just Sponge It.  Just click on the link to be taken to the lotion holder instructions.

To create the tag: 

Stamp the desired sentiment from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set using Garden Green Classic Stamp Pad onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock (approximately 2″ x 2-1/4″).  Cut using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  Cut 2 leaves from the Mossy Meadow cardstock using the Magnolia Memory Dies.  Or, you may cut leaves using the leaf punch.  From a scrap of Whisper White cardstock, punch a 1″ circle.  Use the circle as a base for layering the Pressed Petals Washi Tape to create a flower. 

TIP:  After placing the first layer of 4 petals on the circle, dust the back of the exposed petals with the Embossing Buddy to remove the stickiness.  Add next layer, and gently lift petals to apply dust from Embossing Buddy.  The petals will stay curled upwards and not stick to the bottom layer. 

Complete the flower by adding a Perennial Essence Floral Center.  Add the two cut leaves to the back to the flower with mini glue dots and attach to the sentiment label using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Also use the dimensionals to attach the label to the lotion holder.  Close the lotion holder using the Copper Clip.  Tie a bow around the clip using the 1/4″ Mint Macaron Textile Ribbon. 

Just a reminder –  BONUS DAYS ends on July 31st!

For every $50 you spend (before tax & shipping), you will earn a $5 Bonus Days coupon code that can be used August 1-31.  There is no limit to the number of Bonus Days coupon codes you can receive.  The coupon codes are sent via email.  If you earn multiple coupon codes in a single order, all of the coupon codes will be in one email.

Pressed Petals Covered Notebook

While sorting craft supplies, I found a 4-1/2″ x 3-1/4″ notebook and immediately decided to create a Pressed Petals Covered Notebook.  The Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper has beautiful photographic images. Since the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) is light weight, I knew it would work perfectly to create cover the small notebook.   Plus, the coordinating Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape would make a perfect embellishment.  As seen in the photo, the Linen Ribbon from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack covers the front seam.  I went back and forth whether to add a phrase on the notebook or not.  But as you see, in the end “A Little Note” was added.  The phrase can be found in the Butterfly Gala Photopolymer Stamp Set

The photo also shows the notebook back is finished with the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP.  Additionally, Merry Merlot cardstock is cut to fit the interior panels and covers the overlapping DSP.  

Tips for creating a Pressed Petals Covered Notebook: 
  • Measure the front of your notebook starting where the binding meets the cardboard.  Add  1/2″ to the top and bottom measurements plus 1/2″ to one side measurement.  This is the size you will cut your paper.  This provides you ample paper to fold and cover the notebook edges.
  • Use multipurpose liquid adhesive to attach the paper to the front of the notebook. I put the glue on the notebook and not on the paper. Start by abutting the paper along the binding edge and work out toward notebook edges. 
  • To create a neat fold at the corners, use paper snips to clip the paper so sides and fold over one another on the inside of the cover.  Glue to hold in place.
  • Measure the inside panel of the cover and cut ensuring it will overlap the designer series paper.
  • Repeat for back cover.
  • To embellish the front, wrap ribbon around the front at the seam of the binding and the designer series paper. 
Pressed Petals Washi Tape Flower:
  • Peel 8 petals from the washi tape roll.
  • Punch a 3/4″ circle of cardstock to use as a base for the petals.
  • Arrange four of the the petals around the cardstock base.  After attaching, use the Embossing Buddy on the exposed back of petals to prevent stickiness.  
  • Add the next layer of four petals by offsetting them on the first layer of petals.  Lift edges and dust with the Embossing Buddy.  
  • For the flower center, add a Perennial Essence Floral Center.  Glue to front of the notebook.
  • Optional: Punch 2 sets of leaves from Mossy Meadow Cardstock with the Leaf Punch.  Spritz lightly with water, pinch leaves between fingers and after it dries, attach around flower using mini glue dots.
  • Also optional: Stamp the sentiment and cut with the Classic Label Punch. 

The notebooks are the perfect size to place in one’s purse.  Plus, the notebooks are a great craft fair project!  Since I found more than one mini notebook in my craft supplies, I’ll be covering them so be on the lookout for another covered notebook post.

Hope you enjoyed today’s project.  Thanks for stopping by!

Yes, More Craft Fair Projects!

This will be the final post of the week containing projects from the recent Holiday Bazaar – acetate treat boxes and rosette ornaments from the Be Merry Project Kit.  The acetate treat boxes being shared are another design courtesy of Connie Stewart on her blog.  Not only are the treat boxes simple to make, they are super cute!  I’m loving the acetate boxes offered by Stampin’ Up! as they are very versatile and make great packing for more than cards.  For this project, just cut a box in half and used designer series paper (DSP) to create a closure for the box.  The 3″ x 4 1/2″  box size is perfect to holding fun size candy bars but can also accommodate non-candy items.  

 

 Stampin’ Up! Acetate Treat Boxes embellished with Seasonal Chums Stamp Set Bundle and Rosette Ornaments from the Be Merry Project Kit 

The Be Merry Project Kit requires no stamping and comes together quickly.  To speed production for the Holiday Bazaar, I separated the kit and set up an assembly line.  Using a hot glue gun,  I was able to complete two kits (24 rosette ornaments) in less than an hour.  Many of the ornaments sold and the remaining ones are being used on some of my holiday packages as gift tags.

Be sure to check out the retiring list to order some of your seasonal favorites before January 2nd.

 

Thanks for stopping by and check back on Monday for a new project idea!

More Craft Fair Projects!

Today two projects are being shared.  Both of the designs were shared by other demonstrators on their sites and I thought the items would be great for the holiday bazaar. 
 
The first was from a post by Connie Stewart and is a fingernail file cover.  The file cover was very quick to make and the 20 that were made for the bazaar sold out in just a matter of minutes.  I promoted them as stocking stuffers but one lady purchased several to include in cards she was sending to friends – what a great idea!

The second project is from Marisa Alvarez.  I had purchased several packages of pencils from the dollar store for use in another project but spied her use of the Many Mittens Framelits Dies to embellish a pencil package and decided to make a few for the dollar section in my booth.  Best thing is you can use scraps of cardstock for much of this project.
Pencil Tags made using Stampin’ Up! Many Mittens Framelits Dies 
You can find a list of project materials listed at the end of this post.  Several items such as  some ribbons and the 1″ cello bags (used for the pencil packaging) are retired but you can easily find substitutions.
 
Thanks for stopping by and check back tomorrow for another project from the bazaar.
