Treat Week 2020 #3 - MORNING STAR Star Box

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a super cute box that's like nothing that I 've ever created before.  I thought this would be a great project for Treat Week 2020.  Treat Week is my week long series sharing different treat projects ranging from simple to more advanced.  This fun unexpected Star shaped gift box will surly put the stars in someone's eyes.  Here's a look at my project.


This box uses products from the 2020 Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog.  I used the Morning Start Stamp Set to stamp on my project today.  Enjoy stars and flowers in varying sizes in the Morning Star Stamp Set. Mix and match to create unique stamped patterns complemented by encouraging messages.  This is a Two-Step Stampin’ set; it allows you to layer two or more images to create one final image with extra texture and dimension in the colors you want. This is also a Distinktive stamp set; it has a special texture that gives added depth and dimension in a single step, creating photo-realistic images.   Since this set is a Distinktive set and the images could be layered made it was wonderful choice to use on this project.


This was the first version of this project.  I used the floral star image on the front and stamped one of the Morning /Glory flowers in the set and cut it out by hand.  I popped it up on the front to add a great amount of detail and interest.  This box needs two of the large stitched stars cut out in whatever cardstock color you pick.  For the above photo I picked Highland Heather with matching ink.  You also will need three strips of matching cardstock cut at 2 7/8" x 11.  I scored this piece on the long side at every 1 1/2" mark; so 1 1/2, 3, 4 1/2, 6, 7 1/2, 9, & 10 1/2".  I then scored on the short side at 3/8" all the way down.  You will fold and burnish all the scorelines, and add tear & tape on the 3/8" side, and they you are going to cut up the score lines to the first score line and you are going to deeply notch each section and how to cut the strips to make them long enough (see video).

Treat Week 2020 #2 - UNDER MY UMBRELLA & Pleased As Punch Box

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you the next project in my Treat Week 2020 series.  Treat Week is my week long series sharing different treat packaging and projects. Each day this week I will be sharing a new video tutorial along with coordinating blog post. For today's project I made this super cute box that's a great size.  I used new projects form the Coordinating Product Release (Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper) that's coming on February 4, 2020, along with the Under the Umbrella bundle.  This box will hold a lot of treats due to it's size.  Which by the way measures 5" x 3" x 1 1/2", so you can see its a good size.   Here's a look at my project.


I used one piece of cardstock to make this box.  I used a piece of Blushing Bride for the pink box and Gorgeous Grape for the purple box.  Both boxes was made with a piece of cardstock measuring 8 x 10 1/2".  I scored each piece on the longside at 1 1/2, 4 1/2, 6, 9.  Then I scored on the short side at 1 1/2 & 6 1/2.  Once I had the cardstock cut and scored it was time to cute the designer series paper.  For this box you need the following designer series paper; (2) 2 3/4 x 4 3/4, (2) 1 1/4 x 4 3/4. and (1) 2 3/4 x 1 1/4.


You will also need to punch out one of the umbrellas from the designer series paper (and I will go ahead and tell you that the design on the paper are not punch design friendly.  You will have to cut the paper to get the design you want to punch out, they don't line up like the punch if that makes scenes.  It does in my head but not sure if it is in the text.


To secure the box close I tied it shut with the Gorgeous Grape Mini Striped Ribbon.  I placed the sentiment on a 2" circle from Whisper White and then added one of the umbrella from the designer series paper popped up with a couple dimensionals.  I love the designs in this pack of paper and the face that it coordinates with punches in the Mini Catalog and the Small Bloom punch from Saleabration.  Dress up your paper crafts with the flowers, hearts, raindrops, and other patterns from the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper. Great card making paper, scrapbooking paper, and more.

Treat Week 2020 #1 - WITTY-CISMS Gift Bag

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with the first project for my Treat Week 2020!  I am going to be sharing a new treat project with you everyday this week using new products from Stampin' Up!.  Today, I am going to share with you a super cute project using the Witty-cisms stamp set (inspired by Million Dollar Sales Achiever Lisa Fast), the super cute Printed Gusseted Bags, along with the Tags & More Accessories Kit to make a super quick & easy Treat Bag.  Here's a look at my treat bag.


You can make a a ton of these with the everything that I listed above.  I picked the Witty-cisms stamp set for it's fun little play on words and super cute images that could be easily colored.  I `started out by picking my designer series paper and cutting it in half.  Which was super easy since the Brights Paper stack is 6 x6.  I scored both pieces at 1 1/4" and 1/2".  The 1/2" piece was attached to the 1 1/4" section.  When inserted the other 1 1/4" piece becomes the folded over topper.    I then picked one of the coordinating tags and label from the Tags & More Accessory Kit.
Once I had the designer series paper inserted into the gusseted bag and added the candy I folded over the excess of the bag and then closed it with one of the copper clips from the kit and added a tag.  I then stamped the sentiment with Tuxedo Black ink and colored it.  The Lookin' Sharp image I colored with Granny Apple Green Blends.  For the Thanks Berry Much image I colored it with Granny Apple Green and Calypso Coral stampin' blends.   The dark Calypso Coral marker is very close to Terracotta Tile, so it matches great.
