Have you started creating your gift tags and treat boxes yet?  I’m excited to host a class tonight where we will be creating 10 gift tags with a few tiny gift boxes using the Merry Little Labels stamp set.  Here’s a couple of them.

Aren’t they cute?!  I filled the Clear Tiny Treat box with M & M’s but you could add anything you want.  Creating Gift Tags is a great way to use up all of those scraps of designer paper that you have left.

Here’s the list of products that I used to give you an idea of what you will need to create your own.

Have a great day and Happy Stamping to you!


Good day and I’m sharing the Mini Pizza Box with a bright gift tag for today’s project.

There was a piece of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock on my table to it went into the Big Shot with the Layering Circles dies.  I didn’t stop there though, the Seasonal Layers and Card Front Builder dies were also calling, so we have snowflakes and a tree to add to this tag.

The greeting comes from the Seasonal Bells stamp set and I coloured it direct to stamp with a Real Red and Garden Green marker before it was cut out with Paper Snips.

All of this was put together using our Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  The band for the Mini Pizza Box was cut to 1″ x 10″ and folded around the pizza box.  I attached the ends of the band using a small piece of our Tear & Tape Adhesive.  I plan on putting a gift card inside this box, but you could add some candy as the box is Food Safe!

Here’s the full list of everything that I used.

We had fun at class on Tuesday creating these cuties!

There’s nothing like a cute tag to wrap up some Halloween goodies for trick-or-treaters and I think these are very cute.  We made them using the Spooky Cat Bundle.

The 3″ x 6″Gusseted Cellophane Bags are just the right size to cuddle some sweet treat and you can find them Here.

Here’s the list for all of the products that we used.

If you are getting ready for all of the cute trick-or-treaters, I hope that these cuties give you some inspiration for packaging.

Happy Stamping!


Today’s post is not a card!  I decided to create some cute treat holders for the sweet trick or treaters who will be coming to our door in a couple of weeks instead!

The are little coffins – aren’t they cute?  I’ll share the template so you can create your own at the bottom of this post.  In the meantime, What Will you Stamp posted a challenge to use the Spooky Cat stamp set, and that is where the greeting comes from.

I used the Hardwood background stamp to add the wood grain to the Soft Suede coffin and also made good use of three new ribbons to decorate these cuties.

Here’s the list of products for you.

As promised, you can print off the template below to create your own little coffins.

Have a great time creating and Happy Stamping.


Hi and welcome.  Today’s post is all about gold and silver and a pretty gift box.


I loved the colour challenge posted by The Paper Players for this week and decided that creating this gift box was the way to go.  Who says you can’t use gold and silver at the same time!

The Christmas Magic and Thin of Tags stamp sets are going away very soon so this was the perfect opportunity to use them.  (See the Year-end Closeout items HERE)

Here’s another angle showing those pretty golden bells.


Yes, I cut each one out with my Paper Snips!

Notice the tiny dots?  I used the 1/8″ Hand-held punch and then glued each one on using the Fine-tip glue pen.


Here’s the full list of products that I used in case you’d like to try this yourself.  The White Gift Boxes are the perfect solution for small gifts or even some chocolate treats!

Do you have a recipe for the best chocolate chip cookies?  Last week we got together to create some gifts for Christmas giving and made this jar of ingredients to make the best chocolate chip cookies.


What better stamp set to use than the Cookie Cutter Christmas set and the matching Candy Cane Lane designer paper!  The label measures 6″ x 5-1/2″ (folded at 2-3/4″) to hold the recipe for these delicious cookies.  Adding a candy cane is the “icing on the cookie”, LOL.

This is a simple gift to create – all you need is a quart jar to hold the ingredients.

Here’s the list of products that we used.

Give this a try and Happy Stamping!


Have you seen the White Gift boxes that are on page 7 of the Holiday Catalogue?  They are 3″ x 3″ and make great containers for small gifts, like candy.


I took the colours from The Paper Players challenge to create the flower on top.  It uses the Mint Macaron, Emerald Envy and Real Red perfectly.  I used the Festive Flower Builder Punch to create the flower and glued it all together with Liquid Multi-purpose glue.  It holds it together much better than the SNAIL adhesive.

Here’s another view.  There is a plastic sleeve that is made to slip over the box.


And, here’s a close-up of the festive flower.


I plan on filling this pretty box with Purdy’s chocolates for someone special.

Here’s the full list of products that I used.

Take care and Happy Stamping to you.


Happy Friday and check out these cute gift bags that I made using the Gift Bag Punch Board and the Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper(NEW).

Sweet Gift Bags -

These would be great for your favourite student and I put a little somethin’, smoothen’ in them as a special treat.

I think that adding those cute balloons from the Balloon Celebration bundle are the icing on the treat!  Of course I had to show off the new In Color Ruched Ribbon too!

If you haven’t used the Gift Bag Punch board lately, I hope this inspires you to get it out and use it.  If you need to add it to your supplies, click HERE to shop.

Here’s the complete this of goodies that I used.

Have a wonderful Long Weekend and Happy Stamping!


Do you like to wear hats?  Any kind of hat?  How about a party hat?  We used to have the tradition of wearing party hats for Christmas dinner so I took a walk down memory lane while creating these cuties!

Christmas Party Hats -

I used the Home for Christmas Designer paper for these and created a large one (pretty much uses a whole 12″ x 12″ sheet) as well as the two smaller ones(1 sheet of 12″ x 12″).  Then I went to work adding decorations.

If you would like the pattern to create these fun hats yourself, just Click this LINK and have fun creating!

We’re in the last few days before Christmas and I sincerely hope that you are all ready for the day!  I’ll be posting up to December 24th and then will be taking a few days off to spend with my family.

Stay tuned for a couple more pretty projects and I’ll post the list of ingredients for today’s hats below.

Wahoo – the Festive Flower Builder Punch is one of the excellent Weekly Deals this week!  Want to know what you can make with it?  Here you go…..

Gift package finished -

That beautiful glimmer flower was created with that punch and makes the perfect accessory for this cute gift box!

Cynthia’s Tip:  When using Glimmer paper with this punch I highly recommend that you use it face down on the table to cut your pieces.  Glimmer paper is thicker and it will be easier on your hand to press down while the punch is placed on the table!

I made the he gift box using the Square Pillow Box Thinlits Dies out of the Home for Christmas designer series paper(139592).  When using these thinlits dies on a certain pattern, it is important to make sure that one side is cut upside down as per photo, so that the pattern will run the same way when the package is put together.

Gift package step 1 -

Here’s the list of all of the great Christmas-themed Weekly Deals!  Make sure go get them early – these items will go very quickly!!!
