Sharing treat bags using Stampin’ Up!’s So Sentimental stamp set for class this week.
One of the reasons I love being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is sharing the love of creating with rubber stamps, ink, and paper with others. I hold classes here in Mesa, Arizona, as a way to share my love of rubber stamping, make new friends and connections, and build a community of crafters.
For each event I hold, I give participants a different treat or favor. These are some of my favorite things to make! The featured treat today is created using the 3 x 9 Printed Gusseted Cellophane Bags found on page 33 of the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog. You receive 25 bags for just $7. I’ve included some chocolate bars in mine, but there are many items that would fit well in these decorated bags, such as small hand lotions, lipsticks and chapsticks, peanuts, and more.
Here are some of the other Stampin’ Up! ingredients I used for the So Sentimental Treat Bags:
- Yummilicious stamp from the So Sentimental stamp set (page 20-January-June 2020 Mini Catalog)
- Stitched So Sweetly Dies (page 20-January-June 2020 Mini Catalog)
- Scallop Tag Topper Punch
- Banner Triple Punch
- Best Dressed 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper
- Mint Macaron 1/8-inch Sheer Linen Ribbon
- Stampin’ Write Markers
You’ll notice the image has two different colors? How did I achieve that look? I colored directly onto the stamp using Stampin’ Write markers. It’s so easy, and it lets you have a multi-colored image.
I’ve included a shopping list below. Each graphic will take you directly to my online store.
There’s still time to take advantage of Stampin’ Up!’s best promotion of the year. Choose free product with minimum purchases of $50. Look for a lot of fun items including exclusive stamp sets and Designer Series Paper.
And, good news! New Sale-A-Bration items become available Tuesday, March 3. Watch for a post that day where I’ll include a link to the new brochure. The new offerings include stamp sets, foil Designer Series Paper, and textured vellum.
Just a note: Some items have been so popular and are sold out. If you see something you really want, I encourage you to get it now before it’s gone.
Thanks for stopping by today! I’d love to help you with any crafting questions or projects!
Christmas Treat Boxes Stampin’ Up! Mini Curvy Keepsake Die
Forty-nine Christmas treats boxes created with Stampin’ Up!’s Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Die are ready to go to my husband’s office tomorrow. It’s fun to be able to place a fun treat on everyone’s desk in the morning, especially during the holidays. I’ve tucked a Lindt chocolate inside each one.
This easy peasy die can be found on page 19 of Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Holiday Catalog. It measures 2-1/8″ x 1-7/8′ x 1-7/8″ — perfect for a small treat or piece of candy. I just love this treat box die because you can create a nice gift with a small sheet of card stock measuring 6 x 6. Simply cut your paper and run it through your die cutting machine with the die. I use a bone folder to soften the fibers, making it easier to fashion the paper into the curvy shape. No adhesive necessary. Once I put the candy inside, I tied a coordinating ribbon around the handle. (I’m going to make everyone work for their treat!)
Not only is this box perfect for the Christmas holiday, but I can see many uses for it. Think about decorating it for Valentine’s Day, creating these as baby shower favors, or as table gifts at a wedding.
It was really fun experimenting with all of Stampin’ Up!’s different papers. In this photo I used the Red Glimmer and Gold Glimmer as well as the sold out Brightly Gleaming Designer Series Paper. I think the snowman faces (using the Let It Snow Embellishment Kit) are super cute. I cut the box with Whisper White card stock and decorated with the face.
Here are closeups of two of the Christmas treat boxes:

Stampin’ Up! Come Sail Away Suite
For each class or event I hold, I love to surprise the attendees with a treat packet — usually filled with chocolate! This last week, I held a class featuring products from Stampin’ Up!’s new Annual Catalog. One of the brand-new suites is Come Sail Away. It’s filled with a great variety of coordinating products including the Sailing Home stamp set, Smooth Sailing Dies, Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper, Sail Away Trinkets, Baker’s Twine, and more.
This package starts with Stampin’ Up!’s Clear Tiny Treat Boxes. They measure 2 x 2 x 2, so they are great size for small favors. And, they are a blank canvas. You can decorate them any way you wish. And, they’re a great value. You receive 16 boxes for $7.50. They make great favors for weddings, baby showers and birthday parties.
I used the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper to decorate the outside panels of the box. They are square, and are cut at just under 2 inches each. (These pieces were actually scraps from another project, and I was able to find a great use for them!). I decorated the front of the box with the anchor from the Smooth Sailing Dies cut from Silver Foil Sheets. I added a bit of the Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine on the front. Inside the box, I added shreddie and a fun chocolate treat. I wrapped it all up with the Linen Ribbon from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack.
