Coffee Break

After Halloween the last thing people want to see is candy/chocolate…but I actually have left overs this year.  Here’s a quick and simple treat to “dress up” the candy/chocolate.

The dies I used are from Jaded Blossom.

Happy Halloweeny!

I love it when I get time to just play with all the fun crafty “stuff”.  I really enjoy making 3D projects that hold treats of some kind.  This holds a fun size treat.

I have to say I was pretty happy with how it turned out.

Until next time…have fun creating!

Matchbook Candy Treat

At the gender reveal party I wanted to come up with another “take away” for people that didn’t want the popcorn.  I came up with this matchbook candy treat.

Ready To Pop

Last weekend we had a gender reveal party for my daughter and her boyfriend.  Since no one knew (not even me) what the gender was I decided to make some pink and blue popcorn boxes.

I used the Popcorn Box Thinlits Dies and the Ready To Pop Stamp Set.  You can get the dies and the stamp set in a bundle here.

I think they turned out super cute and to top it off my daughter loved them.

Until next time…have fun creating!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

We just finished our Thanksgiving weekend.  I am stuffed.  This weekend I not only had Thanksgiving but we also had a birthday in our house and we did a gender reveal party for my daughter.  We also had a birthday on the Thursday.  Can you say busy!!!

I did manage to do a fair bit of crafting though.  Here is what I made for the Thanksgiving dinner guests….

I used the gable box die from Lawn Fawn, a stamp set from My Creative Time and the Decorative Label Punch from Stampin’ Up.

I think they turned out super cute!

Until next time…have fun creating!!

For You

I have had a kit from Stampin’ Up called the Perfectly Wrapped Project Kit for some time now.  You can find it here.

I decided to make the smaller box, add some treats and take it to a girls night dinner.

I was impressed with how they turned out.

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…
