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.

Giftable Greetings

This has to be one of the quickest projects I've made with a Paper Pumpkin kit. I've had several of these little boxes in my stash because I knew I'd use them someday. Well it's someday, look how perfect it matches the card! 😀

Curvy Keepsake Purse

Look at this fun little purse I made with my Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits.  The top of the purse is a 1 x 1 1/2 piece of paper (one on the front one on the back) and the handle is made from the Oval Framelits.  I glued one end of a small strip of paper to the back side of the purse.  The other side goes through the handle and tucks behind the scallop circle, to keep it closed.

Apple Hello

Does anyone else feel like we were just saying school is out for the summer?  And now the kids are going back to school?!  What?!  That was quick!  Next thing you know, we'll be wishing one another "Merry Christmas" 😉  Well, when I realized school was starting soon I decided to create a little something school related, so I created a little apple with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits.

Bike Birthday Box

I adore the Bike Ride stamp set!  I especially like the way the little rack can hold things, like this little cupcake. 😊  I made this box an inch wide so it would be easy to fill.  How would you fill your box?

Big Day Polka Dot Bag

Don't you get excited when you find a great bargain? I found these black and white polka dot bags at Joann Crafts.  I folded the top down and used one of the dies in the Stampin' Up! Baker's Box Thinlits to create the slot for the handle. I knew it wouldn't take much to dress it up and it didn't.  The hardest part was choosing the color for the embellishments because so many colors look great with black and white.

Friendship Cookies

A yummy treat to a great friend.  All you need to do is fill a cello bag with a yummy treat and tie it with ribbon.  Next, add a simple flower and sentiment to a belly band.  A couple embellishments turn something plain and simple into a sweet, unique gift. 😋

With Love Pillow Box

Look, I used my fuse tool again! 😊 This time I fused a tiny tag and mini beads inside a banner shaped tag.  I stamped the sentiment on the outside of the tag with StazOn ink.  The box was made with the Square Pillow Box Thinlits.  I'm having a great time with the fuse tool!

Flower Shop Gift Cards

Here are the cards I tucked inside my Flower Shop Gift Box. I stayed with the same pink, black, glimmer paper and Flower Shop stamp set.  The sentiments are from the Avant Garden stamp set.

Flower Shop Gift Box

I made this gift box with my Sizzix Bigz Die, Box w/Scallop Flap & Flowers.  The die is intended to be a gift card holder. I cut  and connected two boxes together (one minus the top flap) to create a gift box.  One side of the box is holding a package of gum, the other side has three cards.  I'll be showing the cards on my next post so stay tuned. 😊
