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.

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.
