Easter Treats with Fable Friends

Each month I hold four card classes at various times and days. From time to time, I like to spoil my friends who faithfully attend and, I think, enjoy class. This month I made a little treat for everyone to celebrate spring and Easter. The sentiment from Fable Friends made it easy and cute!

I only used a sentiment from the Fable Friends stamp set, but you should look at this adorable set of images.

Design Notes for Fable Friends Treats:

Oh gosh. these were easy. I picked three colors and stamped some of the sort of sunburst image on Whisper White.

A little Tear & Tape to hold everything together and they were done. Here’s a look at all of them!

Note Card Box with All Things Thanks

I have an event coming up and have been thinking about a little hostess gift. The other morning I saw a video from Ronda Wade where she created a darling note card box from one sheet of card stock. Love at first sight! And an answer to my query.

Isn’t this so cute?

 

Design Notes for Note Card Box:

First things first. You have to have a Stampin’ Trimmer or Simply Scored Board to make this box. There is a fair amount of scoring for this. Here are my scoring/cutting samples.

Note Card Box, Stampin' Up!, diannescards.com(Sorry, not sure why I turned the paper after I added the cutting lines.)

I added some Tear & Tape as indicated.

Note Card Box, Stampin' Up!, diannescards.com

Just fold the sides over, and then adhere with the Tear & Tape. I added Designer Paper before I assembled but it really doesn’t matter. It’s easy to add after you assemble the box.

The decorative part was fun. You know how I love to heat emboss and used this as an opportunity to dig out some copper accents. The ribbon is from the Tea Room suite and the edge of copper was just too perfect. One option for the box is to wrap the ribbon around and then untie it to open it. I did tie the ribbon around but put a glue dot under the bow. Then all the recipient has to do is pull the ribbon off from the back, without untieing.

You can see the ribbon here.

Let’s Go Dashing Along! To A Sale!

I think it was during October that Stampin’ Up! offered the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper as a bonus for holding an event. I had some some of the paper was disappointed when it was no longer available. Guess what! It is back in stock. I was usingthe last bits of it to create these little treats for my friends. Oh, scroll down a bit to hear about the Sale!

Do they look familiar? I made something similar at Thanksgiving. Check out that post here.

 

Design Notes for Dashing Along Treat Holders:

Really, believe me, these are so easy.

  1. For Ghirardelli Square, cut paper 4″ x 4″.
  2. Use the Envelope Punch Board and score and punch at 2″ on all sides.
  3. Fold on score lines.
  4. Add a little adhesive on the bottom flap.
  5. Close and decorate with twine, thread or thick ribbon. Add a sprig if you like.

Let’s Shine a Little Light!

Each year, during my December card class, I have an extra project for my friends to make as a little gift from me. This year everyone is making a Seasonal Tea Light.  It will be easy to make and so cute. Here’s my sample.

I also decided that this would be perfect for this week’s challenge over at Global Design Project.

Design Notes for Seasonal Tea Light:

If you have a Simply Scored Tool, your life is made so much easier! I’ve made these tea lights before and also made a video. The tea light in the video has the same dimensions but is decorated differently. I used the Seasonal Layers Dies  for the snow flake and the Sweetly Stitched Framelits  and the Twinkle Builder Punch for the trees.

The measurements for the vellum are 4″ x 8 1/2″ and score at 2″, 4″, 6″ and 8″.

All Wrapped Up in Country Lane

Honestly, I wasn’t going to send out a blog post today. If you receive my Newsletter (and I hope you do), today you received a tutorial for a lotion holder. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving here. Though we are only having six for dinner, I’ve got lots to do. However, I saw a really cute candy holder on Pootles website early this morning and decided I had to make some for our table with some pieces of Country Lane Designer Paper that I had left over.

The size is a bit different than the ones that Pootles made but it was pretty easy to make the adjustment.

 

 

Design Notes for Country Lane Treat Holders:

Since I used Ghirardelli Square Mints for my treats, I had to change the size. I ended up using 4″ x 4″ pieces of Country Lane Designer Series Paper and punched and scored at 2″ on the Envelope Punch Board.

I added just a bit of adhesive on one flap and closed around the mint. To decorate, I used some Linen Thread, Corrugated Elements and some of the Leaves Trinkets. Done!

I know these will look great on my table with the Napkin Rings I made with the October Paper Pumpkin materials. See that post here.
