Matchbook Mints

Kay Flipps recently sent me a message asking me for instructions to my Matchbook Mints I recently posted.  I thought I would try to do some sort of tutorial for her.  Here goes nothing…


Card stock measures 2″ x 5 5/8″.  Score on the long side at 1/2″, 3″, 3 1/4″.


Fold on the score lines.  In the picture below, I have stapled the “short” end.  You can easily add adhesive to your treat and attach it inside then fold the card stock over and tuck it into the end.


Or you can tuck in your treat before you staple the bottom.  This would also secure the treat inside.


All that is left to do is embellish the front cover.  Here are some ideas I came up with…


Until next time…have fun creating!!!


Heart & Star Treats

I guess I shouldn’t really call these “treats”…


These were made using the new Stampin Up Sweet & Sassy Framelits and the Star Framelits.  The sentiment comes from the Perfect Wrapped stamp set.  Super cute and super easy.

Questions on Treats I Make

I have had a couple of questions recently on how I make up a bunch of the various “treats” I do.  First off, I make a bunch at one time.  Most of the time I don’t have a set reason for making the treats.  So I will leave them “blank” as shown below.


I made a bunch of mint holders but didn’t have any one to give them to so I have these ready to decorate when they are needed.  The reason I usually leave them blank is that I don’t know if they are for a friend or a party etc.  That way it takes no time at all to add a sentiment or further decoration.

There are times where I make a treat project with a purpose in mind.  Those are decorated and given away right away.

Brownie Treats

I recently got some individually wrapped brownies from Costco.  I made a whole bunch of packages for my nieces dance group.  Here is the project…


I would love to see what sort of “treats” you have made.  Send me an email or post on my facebook page.

The stamp set is from My Creative Time called Just Simply Live.  The paper is from Stampin Up in the Brights Collection.

Super easy and super cute!

Late Night Crafting Treats

The other night my son and I were in my craft room.  Surprise….we started crafting!!!  It was awesome.  Why am I so excited about it…he’s 18 years old.  I love spending time with both of my children and when I get to craft with them…well it’s a bonus.  He helped make these peppermint patties treats.  He took them ALL to a “gathering” he was going to that night.  He said his friends just loved them!


Products used – 

Stampin Up – Scallop Circle Punch, 1 3/8″ Circle Punch, 1 1/4″ Circle Punch

Chocolate Box Treats

Here’s a quick and simple treat you can whip up very quickly.  I used Stampin Up’s Tiny Treat Boxes (you get 25 of them in a package!!) and some Designer Series Paper Bright Colour Collection Paper Stack….that’s it.  I didn’t have time to do much more than that as my son took all the boxes to his friends.  (He also was kind enough to take a couple of pictures of some of them before he took them all!)

Easter Treats

Oh does it feel good to blog again.  I have been fortunate enough to get my own craft room and we have spent time painting and putting it together.  It’s now set up so I can craft and blog but it is still a work in progress.

I saw this awesome idea from Pootles and just had to make my own version.


Here’s how I made this project…

Designer Series Paper 11″ x 3 1/2″

Score on the long side at 1/2″, 1 1/4″, 9 3/4″, 10 1/2″

Score on the short side at 3/4″, 1 1/2″, 2 1/4″, 3″

I used the Word Window Punch from Stampin Up to punch a window.  You could use anything that will fit in the space.  I also used the flower from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and added a rhinestone to the center.

I would love to see your version of this project.  Feel free to link it up here or post it on my Facebook Page here.

Woo Hoo!!

My niece recently had a dance competition.  I thought I would make a whole bunch of treats for the girls and maybe some for the moms.

Here is what I came up with…


My sister had a chuckle when I showed them to her.  She advised me that her dance mom group name was Woo Hoo. I had no idea!  So it made it even more interesting.

Until next time…have fun creating!!


Making a box with the Envelope Punch Board

As mentioned in my last post you can make boxes with the Envelope Punch Board.  There are many tutorials on youtube but I saw a great tutorial by Pootles.  I decided to make these for our table setting at Christmas.  I put a few chocolates inside and they were enjoyed by all.
