Little Treat Box Dies
As a demonstrator, I had the opportunity to order early. What a hard decision! (Just get it all, right?) But, I’m always drawn to treat packets. They are fun to make and fun to give. Especially when you can add chocolate.
The treat pictured here is made with the Little Treat Box Dies. I selected this as one of my first purchases because:
- It uses just one 6 x 6 piece of card stock.
- The scores and cuts make it easy to assemble the box.
- No adhesive is necessary. Just put it together.
- The coordinating stamp set — Little Treats — contains images for Halloween, Christmas, weddings, general birthdays, and more. Very versatile and worth the investment.
- It’s super cute!
I decorated the box with pieces of the Playing with Patterns Designer Series Paper (found in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog), vellum, and ribbon.
Here are what the dies look like.
Here’s the stamp set. Buy the bundle for $53 and you save 10 percent.
Here’s another creation with a different color scheme and a different folding technique.
Earlier today, I did a Facebook Live showing how I this box goes together. I converted it to a YouTube video. Give it a watch.
Supplies Used to Create this Treat
Welcome to the Stampin’ Friends Blog Hop where I’m featuring Stampin’ Up!’s Perfectly Plaid stamp set for a handmade greeting card and easy gift card holder.
Thanks for joining us on our monthly blog hop. The theme this month is “anything goes.” That fits perfectly with my theme this month. Be sure to visit all of the hops on the blog and leave comments.
Each Thursday this month, I’m featuring a Christmas or holiday themed card using products found in Stampin’ Up!’s 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.
For this card, I used the Perfectly Plaid stamp set and coordinating Pine Tree Punch. The set and punch carried over from last year’s Holiday Catalog. Now, we can get a jump start on our holiday greeting card making with this awesome and popular duo.
Stampin’ Friends: Perfectly Plaid Card
In addition to the the stamp set and punch, here are some of the Stampin’ Up! products used to create this card:
- 2020-2022 In Color 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper (Just Jade)
- Playful Pets Designer Series Paper
- Real Red card stock and Classic Stampin’ Pad
- Just Jade Classic Stampin’ Pad
- Red Rhinestones
This is a clean and simple and easy-to-create card. See the end of the post to purchase the products used to create this card.
Perfectly Plaid Gift Coordinating Card Holder
Gift card holders are a popular item for the holidays. I created a coordinating holder using the same products as the card above. To create the holder base, start with a piece of card stock measuring 8 1/2″ x 3 1/2″. Score at 2 1/2″ and 6 1/2″. Fold the bottom piece up, adhering just the sides of the card stock with Tear and Tape to make a pocket for the gift card. I used small Velcro dots to the flap down. Decorate any way you wish.

Today, I’m showing you how I’m sending sunshine Stampin’ Up! style!
In case you hadn’t heard, a new trend is here: Sharing Sunshine (#ShareSushine). You fill a box with any yellow items you can find, and send it to someone to let them know you’re thinking of them. Stampin’ Up!’s June monthly crafting kit, Paper Pumpkin, focused on sharing sunshine. The kit contents, delivered in a bright yellow box, contained cards that featured sunshine and caring. We created the cards and decorated the box and sent it to a friend.
Unfortunately, the kit sold out. But you can still share sunshine using Stampin’ Up!’s Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes. A package of 10 boxes costs just $7.50. Decorate them any way you like, fill with goodies, and send.
The boxes come in plain white. I colored the box above with Stampin’ Up!”s Sponge Brayers and Balmy Blue ink, layering on the ink until I received the desired look. I didn’t strive for a perfect solid color; I wanted it to look like sky with a few wispy clouds overhead.
To create the sun, I used the Stitched Shapes Dies (large circle) and the Stitched Triangles (itty bitty triangle) to die cut the images from one sheet of the Playful Patterns 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper. I stamped the sentiment from the June Paper Pumpkin directly on the box using Memento ink. Don’t have that stamp set? Stampin’ Up!’s Under My Umbrella and Sending Sunshine also have sayings appropriate for a box of sunshine.
I added a piece of yellow tissue paper and a handful of fun, yellow items. Ready to send to a friend!
Take a look at this YouTube video showing how I created the box. (It’s a replay of a Facebook Live.)
