Playful Pets Mini PP Treat Boxes

We have a new product this year called Mini Paper Pumpkin boxes. These boxes are fashioned after the boxes that the Paper Pumpkin kits come in, but they are sized a bit smaller.

Yesterday I created a couple pet-themed treat boxes with these, a few punches (the Balloon Bouquet Punch, the Heart Punch Pack, and the Lovely Label Pick a Punch), and the products in the Playful Pets Suite (the Pampered Pets Stamp Set, the Pets Dies, the Playful Pets Designer Paper, and the Playful Pets Trinkets).

I made a couple cute pet-themed treat boxes using the Pampered Pets Stamp Set, Pets Dies, Playful Pets Designer Paper, Playful Pets Trinkets, the Balloon Bouquet Punch, the Heart Punch Pack, and the Lovely Label Pick a Punch.

The kitty and doggy images are both from the designer paper. I hand-cut (fussy-cut) the kitty, mouse toy and ball. But I was able to die-cut the doggy since this is the same image that coordinates with an image in the stamp set. And all four of the pet images in the stamp set have coordinating dies in the Pets Dies set.

Products I used… See below for a complete list of products linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Measurements per box…

  • Real Red Cardstock
    • 3-11/16” x 5-1/2”
    • Scrap for punching heart
  • Playful Pets Designer Paper (words background)
    • 3-9/16″ x 5-3/8″
  • Playful Pets Designer Paper (pet images)
    • Scraps for cutting and/or die-cutting images:
  • Basic Black Cardstock
    • Scraps for punching heart and four small balloons
  • Smoky Slate Cardstock
    • 7/8″ x 3-1/2″
  • Whisper White Cardstock
    • 1″ x 3-1/2″
    • Scraps for stamping and cutting food bowl
  • Flirty Flamingo Cardstock
    • Scrap for punching heart

Tips…

  • Cut away the bottoms of the balloons to get the black ovals for the paw prints.
  • Punch the Smoky Slate and Whisper White strips. Stamp the sentiment. Then layer these together.
  • Build up all the top layers (word background paper, paw print, cut out pet images, and layered label) BEFORE attaching to the Real Red Cardstock layer. This way once the layered label piece is added, the excess can be trimmed off.
  • Notice the layered label is only attached with a Dimensional on the inner end. The pets are on Dimensionals (except for the cat’s tail). And the pet toys are added with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

  • The trinket on the front flap is attached with a Glue Dot.

  • Stamp “Enjoy” and the bowl on Flirty Flamingo or Real Red Cardstock. Punch it out with the heart punch. Cut out the bowl after stamping this image on a Whisper White scrap. Add this over the bowl on the punched heart piece. Layer this onto a punched scalloped heart and add to the inside of the box along with some treats.

The treats you put inside can be for someone’s doggy or kitty. OR you could use this box to enclose a gift for a special person who just loves animals. Then the great thing about this box is it could be re-gifted because it can open and close without needing to tear apart the design. OH! And these boxes when assembled with the glossy/coated side in are “food safe.” Yay! It keeps things less messy.

Thanks for visiting.

Forever Greenery Door Hanger Treat Box

Today I’m sharing a fun way to give a little bit of sunshine to a friend, neighbor, co-worker, or family member. I shared this project idea (a door hanger treat box) with my Stampers With ART group a couple weeks ago as a make-n-take project during our online team event. I sent them supplies so each of them had a half sheet of Whisper White Cardstock, a 4″ x 4″ piece of designer paper, and a length of coordinating ribbon. And then I walked them through the process of making them as I’ll be doing with you today. Here are the variations I shared with my Stampers With ART group during that event.

I’m excited to show you how to make a quick and sturdy treat box that can be hung onto any door handle. I share several samples made with retiring papers and products. But the one I demonstrate features new products from the Forever Greenery Suite debuting June 3 in the 2020-21 Annual Catalog. Click here to access measurements, a how-to video with tips and tricks, see other close-up photos, and access links to all the products I used. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

It’s a pretty sturdy treat box. It’s quick to make. And I’ve got a tip for how it can be hung onto any door handle.

Since I received new product this week from the upcoming 2020-21 Annual Catalog (debuting June 3), I decided to make one with the Forever Greenery Suite. And I demonstrated this project in my latest Online Paper Crafting Class on Facebook this past Wednesday. Then I uploaded the recording of this class onto my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook) and shared it here in my blog post. Be sure to watch the video (you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog), scroll through the close-up photos, check out the products list below, and then let me know if you have any questions.

I hope you enjoyed what I shared in this video. Below are measurements, close-up photos, and a product list for this door hanger treat box I demonstrated.

Products I used… See below for a complete list of products linked to where you can find them in my online store.

You may have seen this idea here on my blog already, because I shared how to make this holder with the Poppy Parade Designer Paper and Music From the Heart Stamp Set back in mid-February. And then I created and shared another version on March 9th with the Lovely Day Paper Pumpkin kit.

Would you like to make one of these?
Refer back to the February post and watch the video for tips and tricks for cutting and making the holder portion of the project. Then read below for the measurements and tips pertaining to these versions using the Best Dressed products.

Products I used… See below for a complete list of products I used linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Measurements…

  • Basic Black Cardstock (follow the video and see photos below to help with the cutting of this base cardstock)

    • 3-3/4″ x 8-1/4″ scored parallel to short end at 1/2″, 1-1/2″ and 2-1/2″

Tips for these specific holders…

  • Stamp the shoe that appears closest to the front close to the left onto the Whisper White Cardstock strip. Stamp shoe image onto the sticky portion of a sticky note, cut it out and use it as a mask the first shoe…stick the sticky note shoe (the mask) on top of the one on the white cardstock, then stamp another shoe just to the right on the white cardstock. Pull the sticky note shoe (the mask) away. The shoe you just stamped should now look like it’s behind the first one.
  • Color the shoes with Blends Markers and add more designer to the main section. Stamp the shoe image twice onto a scrap piece of designer paper. Cut out the area/s you want. Adhere to the shoes on the Whisper White Cardstock.

It’s a little bit of work, but it gives such a fun look.

April 2020 My Wonderful Family Paper Pumpkin Alternate Ideas

The April 2020 Paper Pumpkin is here! And I have to tell you,.. I was SOOooo happy to see long, narrow, fun-fold card bases inside!

The kit is titled My Wonderful Family. It included the supplies shown below to make 8 full-size (5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″) cards – 4 of 2 kinds, and included a large stamp set with family appreciation-themed sentiments.

The April 2020 My Wonderful Family Paper Pumpkin Kit. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I like to think outside the box…see what else I can come up with, and create alternate cards, scrapbook pages and more. So I added the extra supplies in the product list at the bottom of this post to the above kit contents and created my alternate projects that I’m sharing with you today:

  • An accordion display card
  • A pocket fun-fold card
  • Three decorated containers
  • And a 12×12 scrapbook page

Scroll down to see close-up photos, access the links that I mentioned in my video, and see a list of extra supplies (linked to my online store) that I used to make my creations.

Small Diagonal-Lidded Gift Box

Fellow demonstrator, Julie DiMatteo demonstrated a super cute box back in January, and I had to give it a try.

I converted the measurements of Julie DiMatteo’s adorable Diagonal-Lidded Gift Box and created a smaller version. These boxes still are a decent size but allow you to use your sheets of paper/cardstock more efficiently if you are making several. Click here to see four versions of the smaller box, measurements, a how-to video with directions, and links to the products I used to make the Birthday Bonanza ones. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

After making this adorable and unique diagonal-lidded box, I decided to challenge myself and adjust the measurements to eliminate wasted paper and cardstock – basically to make this box more doable for a class setting or for someone who wants to make several of them for wedding favors, party gifts, etc. Julie’s box measures 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ x 1-3/8″. My version measures 2-3/8″ x 2-3/8″ x 1″.

After adjusting the measurements, I then used this project idea as a team make-n-take in my February Stampers With ART online gathering and presented these two versions.

I converted the measurements of Julie DiMatteo’s adorable Diagonal-Lidded Gift Box and created a smaller version. These boxes still are a decent size but allow you to use your sheets of paper/cardstock more efficiently if you are making several. Click here to see four versions of the smaller box, measurements, a how-to video with directions, and links to the products I used to make the Birthday Bonanza ones. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I already shared one of those versions (the one with the Lily Impressions designer paper) on March 29th along with its measurements, a product list, and the promise to share a how-to tutorial video soon. Woo hoo! The video is now ready as you will see below! And the second one I shared with my team is shown below in more detailed photos. (I used the Poppy Parade designer paper for that one.)

I made two more smaller boxes using the super festive Birthday Bonanza designer paper, images from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set, and some heat embossing. I demonstrated one of these in my latest Online Paper Crafting Class on Facebook this past Wednesday. Then I uploaded the recording of this class onto my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook) and shared it here in my blog post. Be sure to watch the video (you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog), scroll through the close-up photos, check out the products list below, and then let me know if you have any questions.

I hope you enjoyed what I shared in this video. Below are measurements, close-up photos, and a product list for the Birthday Bonanza box I demonstrated.

Products I used… See below for a complete list of products linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Measurements…

  • Birthday Bonanza Designer Paper
    • Two pieces that are 5-3/4” x 3-3/8” scored parallel to long side at 1” and then scored in on each end (parallel to short side) at 2-3/8”
    • Scrap for punching 2” Circle piece
  • Basic Black Cardstock
    • 4-1/4” x 4-1/4” scored 15/16” in on all 4 sides
    • Scrap for punching Starburst shape
    • Scrap for stamping and punching sentiment

Spreading Springtime Cheer

Some days are more emotional than others. Yesterday I said more prayers and sent more well wishes than I did the day before. With my boys at home though, I try hard to keep this emotion more within, but it’s hard. I’m normally a “pollyanna.”. But the reality is…it’s scary what is going on in the world right now. And we need to let ourselves worry, cry, and grieve once in awhile.

But it’s also good to think positively – keep that hope! Because eventually things WILL be back to normal. Today I am going to really focus again on more of the positives that are happening. Many people ARE recovering from this virus. Thank goodness. Social media is keeping people connected across the globe. Yay for the internet. Zoom and Facebook Lives are allowing us to hold events and gatherings virtually. People are sending and getting more “thinking of you” cards in the mail. Some families are even getting home improvements projects done that they didn’t have time for before. Yes, there are good things coming from all of this.

And in our house our boys are getting along better! They are getting goofy together, spending time together, and being friends. That has been SOOOoo good to see.

We got the trampoline set up earlier than we had planned.

We are having more family movie nights, playing board games, doing puzzles, and reading new books, too. We’ve also been hand-delivering small treats to a few people who live nearby just to spread some cheer…knocking on doors, standing back (at least 6 feet), and sharing smiles and conversation for a few minutes. It’s been a “feel-good” activity. It’s gotten the boys out and about. And it’s been a way to see people we miss without getting close.

If you have Hershey’s nuggets on hand. Here is super quick craft idea you could make and deliver to your neighbors. I got this idea from Wendy Lee at www.creativeleeyours.com.

Cute bunny treats made with strips of designer paper. I got the idea from www.Creativeleeyours.com (Thanks Wendy!) Click here to see the measurements, a supply list, and a link to Wendy’s post. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Products I used… See below for a complete list of products linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Measurements…

  • Ornate Garden Designer Paper
    • Two pieces that are 7-3/4″ x 1-1/4″ scored parallel to short edge at 1-1/4″ and 5-1/4″
    • 3-1/2″ x 1-1/4″
  • Petal Pink Metallic-Edge Ribbon
    • 11″

Directions…

  • After folding along the score lines of the longer designer paper strips, adhere/connect the two strips together by overlapping the 1-1/4″ x 1-1/4″ sections.
  • Wrap and adhere the smaller designer paper strip around a Hershey nugget chocolate candy. Then attach the base of this wrapped candy to the center overlapping section of the longer strips.
  • Pull strips upward. Use a bone folder to curl the strips inward. Fold at the other outer score lines to form the ears.
  • Paper clip together to hold it steady. Wrap and tie on the ribbon. Remove paper clip, and shape the ears more with a bone folder if needed.

Here is another one that I made with the Parisian Blossoms Designer Paper and Petal Pink Striped Organdy Ribbon.
