Making A Mini Treat Bag and A Tic Tac Holder

Easter-treat-tic-tac-2018Last night, on my Facebook LIVE broadcast, we made a mini treat bag and the Tic Tac Holder for Easter pictured above.   Both are very easy to make and you can customize for any occasion.

The Tic Tac Holder is made with the Hold on to Hope Bundle (wood, clear).  It's a beautiful set at any time of year.

Masculine-mini-treat-bagThe treat bag pictured above is made with the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack with the sentiment from Sweet Little Something. It's all tied up with a little trick using our Burlap Ribbon.

The recording of the video from Facebook is below. I was a little on the "tired" side but I managed to present a pretty decent how-to for these projects.  Let's take a look!

Here's the alternate version of the bag...

Mini DIY Easter Basket with A Good Day

Mini-diy-easter-basket

This is the month we need to plan for Easter gift and treat packaging so here's a DIY mini basket idea for you.  It's a makeover from a past video tutorial that is just the right size for a few sweet treats or small gift. 

I thought I'd try a monochromatic look with some paper and embellishment from the big annual catalog along with A Good Day (wood, clear) stamp set from the Occasions Catalog.  This is such a sweet set and you can see some more projects made with it HERE.

Min-diy-easter-basket-2Let's take a look at the project video tutorial that inspired today's makeover.

Click here to see the video that inspired the Mini DIY Easter Basket on You Tube.

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Cut the designer paper to 6" x 8".
  • Score on the 8" side at 2" and 6".
  • Score on the 6" side at 2" and 4".
  • Cut two strips of designer paper: One strip- 1/2" x 10" for handle and one strip 1/2" x 12'.
  • The 12" strip should be adhered to the top edge of the basket.  Start at center front and wrap around the top edge, bending around corners.  It will not meet the other end once you get back around to the front, but your stamped image and punched pieces will cover that.

Gable Box with Magical Day Mermaid

Magical-day-mermaid-box-1Today's project is this adorable gable box with the Magical Day mermaid.   Isn't is cute?

This Magical Day set bundled with the Magical Mates Framelits (clear mount-145985) is perfect for the young and young at heart!...That's all of us, right?

I decided that the Silver Mini Gable Box (145568) needed to be flipped to the "white" side for this project.  You will see how easy that is to do in today's video.  The beautiful water themed background is from the Myths & Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper (145600).  This paper is the perfect companion for this group of products.  There are dragons, mermaids, and more that can be "fussy cut" from the paper to use on cards, boxes, banners...whatever you desire to craft! 

Below is today's project video where the "magic" happens! ;)

2018 Valentine Treat Bag #3 with Party Pandas

  2018-stampin-up-valentine-treat-bag-3aToday's paper crafting project is the third in my series of Valentine treat holders for 2018.  It was designed specifically for a gluten free granola bar for our granddaughter...and, her momma!  I also wanted to create a bag with supplies that weren't necessarily designed for Valentines. 

That cute little panda is from one of this year's Sale-A-Bration sets, Party Pandas.  These pandas in this set are adorable and this set has been a very popular choice for those placing a qualifying Sale-A-Bration order of $50!  Just look at these samples below...all the panda cuteness!

Watch the video tutorial below to see the simple how-to for this Valentine treat bag.

  • The Library Clips make a really cute closure for this bag and holds the treat inside until you're ready for it!

Treat Box for Valentine Candy

Valentine-treat-box-122aLet's start the week off with a treat box for Valentine candy!  This project is a makeover of a box that I made a couple of years ago for little 3 x 3 Valentine cards but it works for sweet treats, too!

Valentine-treat-box-122c

I was able to fit these two Reese's Peanut Butter Hearts inside so you know there is plenty of room for  treats in this little box.

Let's take a look at the how-to from "back when" so you can make some for your little sweethearts, too!

Click here to see this Valentine box video on You Tube.

Lisa's Inklings:

  • The original project has little 3" x 3" Valentines inside but it's also a great size for sweet treats.
  • For the box, cut the card stock or designer paper to 4" x 10".  Score on the long side at 1", 4 1/2", 5 1/2", and 9".  Turn and score at 1" on the short side for the box bottom.
  • I used a hand held hole punch for the ribbon openings.
  • The Painted with Love Specialty Designer Paper is a good weight/thickness for 3-D projects.

2018 Valentine Treat #2

2018-valentine-treats-2aToday's project is my second Valentine treat holder for 2018.  It's cute and easy and can be adapted for any occasion.

Tucked inside this mini Valentine gift is an individually packed heart candy that measures about 3" x 4" and is about 1/2" - 3/4" thick. 

To me, the star of this project is the new Ready Shreddie (145562) filler. I love this accessory and the fussy, fancy look it gives to this project.  It is SO fun to use and comes in a pack of three colors with plenty for lots of projects.

Let's take a look at the video tutorial for this fun Valentine treat.

CLICK HERE to see this Valentine treat video on You Tube.

2018-valentine-treats-2bLisa's Inklings:

  • For box, cut card stock to 3 3/4" x 7 1/2".  Score on the log side at 3/4", 3 1/2", 4 1/4", and 7".   Turn and score at 1/2" and 1 1/4".
  • Designer paper for box is cut at 2 1/2" wide by 2 1/4" tall.
