Spring Treat Bag

In today's video demonstration, I show you how to make a cute party favor or treat bag perfect for your spring occasions - St. Patrick's Day, Easter, birthdays, bridal shower & weddings, and so much more. Or how about decorating one of these treat bags for a teacher or graduate and enclosing a gift card? No matter the occasion, people are going to love receiving one of these sweet treat bags. What occasion will you create these party favors for? What Stampin' Up! products will you use in making them? Let your creativity shine, then share what you create.

 

I've chosen 2 beautiful papers from the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper for these two spring party favors. The stamped image is part of the Oval Occasions Bundle and is absolutely perfect for celebrating Easter and Spring.

This favor is actually a bag with a tent-like band that slides over the closed bag. The bag can hold chocolates and other sweets, a gift card, and even a piece of jewelry. I'm sure you can think of many other items to put inside these favors.

Here is a St. Patrick's Day party favor also made with Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper. The gold metallic accents make this paper truly elegant and rich. The Gold Foil Shamrock was created using the Heart Punch Pack.

Christmas Tins for Treats, Cash, & More

A couple weeks ago, I posted some Rectangle Tins I decorated for my Thanksgiving Table using Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper and Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set. If you missed it, be sure to check it out with this link: https://bit.ly/3kZgOoY.

Today, I hope you'll enjoy these tins I decorated using coordinating sheets of "Tis the Season Designer Series Paper. Each one is decorated uniquely, one looking more feminine and the other more masculine. These would be great stocking stuffers!

Can you guess the treats I have wrapped in this tin? If you guessed Bite-sized Kit-Kat bars you are correct. Yummy!Rectangle Tins, "Tis the Season Designer Series Paper, Wonder of the Season Ribbon by Stampin' Up!

I think this tin looks a bit more masculine, but I have a hunch anyone would love to receive this.

Cutting Dimensions:

  • Outside top DSP = 2 1/2" x 4"
  • Belly Band DSP = 3" x 6" (The ends will not meet on the top of the tin, so you'll just adhere the left and right sides of the rectangle DSP to the ends of the belly band DSP.)
  • Inside top DSP = 3 7/8" x 2 1/2"
  • Inside top Whisper White Layer = 3 5/8" x 2 1/4"
  • Inside bottom DSP = 3 3/4" x 2 3/8"
  • Candy wrappers DSP = Measure the width based on size of candy bar you are wrapping. Then measure the length needed to wrap around the candy bar.

Gilded Autumn Thanksgiving Favors

The ever so popular Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper is back in stock. This paper has been re-stocked several times because of its popularity and demand. It was back ordered for a while then went was not even available to order, but it's back now. Order your Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP now to make your autumn and Thanksgiving cards and paper crafts. This DSP and the entire Gilded Autumn Suite is GORGEOUS. Don't be fooled by its name, though, because it's not just for fall and Thanksgiving. Many of the DSP prints can be used for other occasions such as sympathy, thinking of you, support and encouragement cards. Many would be great to use for masculine cards. Nature lovers would appreciate the beautiful color combination and botanical prints and patterns. And of course, the Gilded Autumn products would make great birthday, thank you, congratulations, and retirement cards too. 

I hope you'll enjoy the following video demonstration in which I use the Gilded Autumn Suite to decorate Rectangle Tins to use as decorations, place cards, and treat favors all in one for my Thanksgiving table. These personalized gifts are such fun to make. Mine will be filled with candies, but I bet together we can come up with lots of things to put in these decorative tins.

 

I'm excited to make a few more of these Gilded Autumn Decorated Tins - one for each of my Thanksgiving guests. They'll look so pretty as place cards to decorate my Thanksgiving table.

Card Folder for 3 1/2" x 5" Note Cards & Envelopes

Stampin' Up! Note Cards & Envelopes are a great product to make creating lots of cards quickly. They come as a set of 20 pre-cut and pre-scored 3 1/2" x 5" Note Cards and 20 Envelopes. They come in both Whisper White and Very Vanilla, are quite affordable, and mailable. If you've overlooked this product or simply never used it, I highly suggest you give it a try. 

In today's blog post, I want to show you a Card Folder I made for a set of 4 Note Cards & Envelopes I showed in an earlier post. A pretty card folder with coordinating handmade cards makes a great gift for so many occasions, especially if you're on a budget.

To make a Card Folder holding a set of four 3 1/2" x 5" Note Cards & Envelopes, begin with an 8" x 10" piece of card stock. With card stock in vertical/portrait position, score at 2". Turn card stock to horizontal/landscape position, and score at 5 1/2". Fold on all score lines using Bone Folder for crisp creases. Open up card stock, place in horizontal position with 2" score line at bottom. Cut out a triangle as shown. Apply strong adhesive (I prefer Tear & Tape or Tombo Multipurpose Glue) to the 2" outside edges, fold up to form pockets. The finished card folder will be 5" wide x 6" high.
