Cello Witch Hat

This was a happy surprise! I've always wanted to create a witch hat with a triangle cello bag and I finally came up with one I like. I made it with a cello bag from the Banner Surprise Paper Pumpkin kit and the Oval Framelits.  I folded the oval in half then cut a slit along the folded line just long enough for the cello bag to slip through.  Everything else is just a little witch bling. 😉

Boo Box

The Window Box Thinlits make a fun, unique Halloween box that will hold plenty of yummy treats! I'm sure there'd be no complaints from the recipient. 😉

Spooky-Licious Chocolates

Only two weeks until Halloween and I still have so many projects to share, like this spooky-licious bag of chocolates.  This stamp from "The Little Things" stamp set by Stampin' Up! looks great with little effort.  All I needed was the tag and twine to make this treat.  I love the bag! It has a window and a zipper for resealing!  I found a package of them at a local store.  It was a great find! 😊

Haunted House Nugget Holder

This is the cutest tiny Halloween treat.  I made it with the Stampin' Up! Best of Halloween stamp set and Note Tag punch.  The bat is part of the Echo Park Haunted Mansion die set.

Cheerful Tag Treat

This little treat is made from the Cheerful Tags Framelits.  I was inspired by the one Nutmeg Creations made. It's so cute!  I'm sure you can use either tag framelit, I preferred the one with the round top.  I cut it twice then trimmed 2 1/4" off the square side of each piece to create the bottom.  A 2" paper straw is sandwiched between both sides and glued to keep it closed.

Pick Your Potion

There's nothing easier than a cello bag gift.  The Stampin' Up Festive Phrases stamp set helped keep it easy too.  I made a simple tag with the adorable "pick your potion" stamp. Actually all the stamps in this set are adorable! 😊

Spooky Tree Matchbook

My spooky tree matchbook is holding a small package of M&Ms.  Just think of all the different Halloween treats you can tuck inside.  The matchbook is one of those projects that can easily be mass produced for family, friends or co-workers.

Creepy Skeleton Box

What do you think? Creepy or cute? Kinda both? 😊  I think it screams Halloween! The box is My Creative Time, Treat Slider Box. The skeleton is part of Recollections, Halloween clear stamp and die set. I purchased it a few weeks ago at Michaels, and the "creepy" is from the Stampin' Up set Halloween Bash.  My favorite is the bow tie, it's two of the tiny triangles from the Stampin' Up Sprinkles punch, because sprinkles make everything better! 😉

Trick Or Treat Witch Feet

I adore the many projects I've seen with witch boots.  I'm having fun coming up with my own ideas.  Here's an easy way to use them on a Ghirardelli dark chocolate square. Cute huh?!

Polka Dot Ghost Bag

I found these orange polka dot bags last year after Halloween.  After adding a ghost, cut from the Fun Fall Framelits, and the black and white baker's twine, it became one of my favorite projects.  My favorites are always the most simplistic.

Haunted Castle Box

This die is part of a set from Echo Park Paper called Haunted Mansion.  I cut two of them and created this little box. The bat is part of the set and the moon was made with a 2" circle punch.

Toxic Tubes

These little tubes are fun to work with. I wrapped two of them with a belly band and used the Sweet Hauntings (retired) stamp set to create the tag on top.

Double Double Wicked Trouble

Have you seen these Dove, Witches Mix chocolates?! I found them at Target. They are so much fun! Look at the colors and pictures on the wrappers. I thought adding a witch hat clip and putting them in a cello bag was a fun way to present them. 😊

Pumpkin Bucket Nuggets

Now I feel like I can officially move on to Halloween projects.  Yippee! Here's a quick little treat to start off.  If you've been following my blog you know how much I love making Halloween projects! I'll be posting more often so stay tuned. 😉

A Fall Gift Bag For You

Can you believe it's officially the first day of Fall?  I suppose this gift bag can be given any time of year but its colors make it ideal for this time of year.  Now I need the perfect Fall treat to put inside. 😊

Layered Leaves Treat Boxes

Here are a couple of treat boxes I made with the Layered Leaves Paper Pumpkin Kit. I punched an oval circle in the first one to create a handle.  The other is a box cut in half, which is great because it gives you two treat boxes to decorate, fill and give. The leaves on each were created with the Seasonal Layers Thinlits.

Spiral Flower Box

I cut the lid and both inside flaps off a 2 x 2 x 2 tiny treat box then created a clear sleeve to cover it.  The flowers are made with the Spiral Flower Originals Die.  I used my large scallop punch and a coffee filter to create the layer under the flowers, which I polka dotted with a pencil eraser and Pool Party ink.  The final step was to wrap it with thick baker's twine and tie a bow.

Hello Friend Pillow Box

Perhaps my tag should say "Hello Fall" because the temperatures in my city have taken a dramatic drop.  Don't get me wrong, I love Fall, but I'm not ready for summer to end, it went by so quickly. ☹️ Wouldn't you know...after I created this pillow box my September Paper Pumpkin showed up.  All I can say is, "great minds think alike." 😉

You Did It Card

 I used my August Paper Pumpkin kit and the Yummy In My Tummy stamp set to make this fun, "You Did It" card.  I can hardly wait to get the September Paper Pumpkin kit. I hope it's Halloween related! 😉

Celebrate Box

I created this 2 1/2" x 3" box with my Gift Box Punch Board.  The rest is scraps...scrap ribbon, scrap designer paper and scrap tag! Love it when nothing goes to waste!😀

Pink Lemonade

With summer coming to an end I thought it would be fitting to enjoy one last jar of lemonade.  A pink straw and slice of lemon are the perfect compliment to my drink. 😉

Flower Basket Bag

One thing that attracted me to the Bike Ride stamp set and the Build A Bike Framelits were all the fun items that can be added to the bike.  I knew I could use them to make a variety of projects, like this gift bag.  All I used were the sweet flowers and basket. 😊

Floral Window Box

I used the Window Box Thinlits to create a cover for this small treat box.  The sides are covered in strips of designer paper.  I added a small "thanks" tag and ribbon. Now as I look at this project I wonder why it was so time consuming. 🤔

Perfectly Preserved Crate

I like the Stampin' Up! Wood Crate Framelits but don't think I'd get enough versatility out of them.  I do however have other dies that are versatile. 👍 I used my Box #2 Bigz XL die, horizontal slot punch and a die from the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits to create my version of a wood crate.  The jars are little boxes I made with the Cannery Set Framelits.  All these dies are discontinued but I refuse to part with them and I'm sure you can understand why.  😉

Wonderful Little Gift

This little bag was made with a card from the One Great Year Paper Pumpkin kit.  If you didn't want to make the calendar or just didn't get around to making it this is a great alternative.
