Matchbook Style Treat Holder

Today’s project is a quick and easy Matchbook Style Treat Holder.  The treat holders were “a little something” in the June To-Go Class packages.  The new 2020-2022 In Color cardstock provides the coordinating base for the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper.  I just love that the Flowers with Every Season Designer Series Paper coordinates with all of the new In Colors! The small packages of m&m candies fit perfectly inside the Matchbook Style Treat Holder but it’s easy to place other treats inside of a small cellophane bag to insert into the treat holder.

How To Create the Matchbook Style Treat Holder:

For the matchbook body: Cut a piece of cardstock 2-3/4″ x 8-1/2″.  Score at 3-1/2″, 4″ and 7-3/4″; burnish the score lines with a bone folder.  Then, fold along the 7-3/4″ score line and staple to create a tab to hold the top closed. (remember, we’re making a matchbook)  

Next, cut the following:

  • coordinating cardstock – one piece at 2-1/2″ x 3-1/4″ and another piece at 2-1/2″ x 5/8″
  • Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper: one piece 2-1/2″ x 3″ & one piece 2-1/4″ x 1/2″ 

After cutting, add the designer series paper to the cardstock pieces using Stampin’ Seal.  Attach the layered panels to the front of the matchbook.

Stamp the “A Little Something” from the Parcels and Petal Stamp Set using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.  After stamping, use the 1-1/2″ circle punch to cut (position so that the sentiment is toward the bottom of the circle leaving room for the ribbon). 

Finish by tying a small bow using the 2020-2022 In Colors 1/4″ ribbon.  Add to the sentiment label using a Mini Glue Dot.

Don’t you love how simple it is to make these treat holders? One piece of 8-1/2 x 11″ cardstock will make four treat holders so you can create lots of treat holders quickly! 

Personal note: I did a video showing how to make these treat holders and was all set to add it but alas, it’s sideways!  After several hours of trying to edit and correct, I gave up – the technology gremlins won!!!

No Stamping Card!

Yes, you read the title correctly! Today’s card is a “no stamping card.” When creating for the June “to go” class, I opted to make one card that would require no stamping.  The Sunflower Dies and the Flowers for Every Season provide the perfect combination to create a simple, lovely card without the use of stamps.  Of course, if you want to add a stamped sentiment, it’s easy to do.  I find it handy to have cards on hand without a sentiment and when a specific occasion arises, it’s easy to add the needed sentiment.  However, this card works great without a sentiment too!  

Sunflower Card
Card Materials:
  • Card Base: Misty Moonlight cardstock cut at 4-1/4” x 11”, score at 5-1/2” and fold.
  • Layer 1: Whisper White cardstock – 5-1/4” x 4”
  • Layer 2: Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper (DSP) – 4” x 3”
  • Bumblebee cardstock: cut 2 @ 3-3/8” x 3-3/8”
  • Cinnamon Cider cardstock: 1-1/4” x 1-1/4”
  • Just Jade cardstock: 1-1/2” x 8”
  • Misty Moonlight ¼” In Color Ribbon
  • Sunflower Dies
  • Adhesive Sheets: 1 cut to 3-3/8” x 3-3/8” and 1
  • Stampin’ Seal 
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Mini Glue Dots
Card Directions:
  1. Attach the 3-3/8” x 3-3/8” Adhesive Sheet to one of the Bumblebee cardstock squares and add the other adhesive sheet to the Just Jade cardstock.
  2. Using Stampin’ Seal, attach the Flowers for Every Season DSP to the Whisper White cardstock. Add the piece 5” piece of the Misty Moonlight ¼” In Color Ribbon around the card (refer to photo for placement location).  Next, attach the Whisper White/DSP layer to the Misty Moonlight card base.
  3. Select the two large sunflower dies from the Sunflower Dies. Use the Sunflower Base Die to cut the sunflower shape from the 3-3/8” x 3-3/8” Bumblebee cardstock that does not have the adhesive sheet attached
  4. Next, cut the Bumblebee cardstock with the adhesive on the back with the petals Sunflower Die. Align the petals with the sunflower base, then remove the adhesive sheet backing and attach petals to create the sunflower.
  5. Using the sunflower center die, cut one from the Cinnamon Cider cardstock. Add to the center of the sunflower using a Stampin’ Dimensional.
  6. Select the large solid leaf die and the coordinating open leaf die from the Sunflower Dies. Cut 3 solid leaves from the 1-1/2” x 3” strip of Just Jade cardstock.  Cut 3 of the open leaves from the Just Jade cardstock with the adhesive sheet.  Layer the open leaves (veins) to the solid leaves – attach by removing the backing on the adhesive sheet.
  7. Referring to photo for placement, attach the leaves to the back of the sunflower using mini glue dots. Then, attach the sunflower to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  8. Finally, complete the front of the card by adding a small bow tied from the Misty Moonlight ¼” In Color Ribbon.
See how simple it is to create a beautiful card?!

Additional Tips: A must have for the sunflower dies are the Adhesive Sheets.  The adhesive sheets make it easy to attach the intricate cut pieces to their coordinating bases. 

For an extra touch, use coordinating ink and a sponge dauber to add depth to the sunflower and the leaves.

Lovely Labels Pick A Punch

One of the new tools in the Annual Catalog is the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch.  The design provides six options allowing you to create a variety of labels.  Last week, I used the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch for the first time and it will definitely become one of my “go to” tools.  The video below highlights the features of the punch.  You can see the card using the punch below the video.

Here’s the card I created that uses the Lovely Label Pick A Punch:

The card base uses the Flowers for Every Season Memories & More Cards and Envelopes.  Three strips of the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper are cut to fit inside the dotted line rectangular box on the card. Stamp the sentiment onto a 1/2″ strip of Whisper White cardstock and cut the ends using the Lovely Label Pick a Punch.  Create a layering label piece by cutting a 3/4″ piece of cardstock that coordinates with the card base.  Texture emboss the label using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. Add the sentiment label to the texture embossed label. Finish card by embellishing the label with leaf pieces from the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper. Then, attach the label to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
