Team Stamp It Blog Hop

Hello my stamping friend. Thank you for stopping by to check my Halloween project.
As Halloween always associates with treats - I am sharing little treat holders. It is very coincidental that today is my Halloween Party and Sweet Treats Class. So this is what I made for each attendee
 Take Out Treats boxes to the rescue! I always loved 3D dies to help me create quick and easy packaging. This one defiantly did not disappoint.

It was very quick to put them together. You can make 2 boxes from one sheet of paper. Start with 8.5 x 5.5 piece and cut 2 times:
Then score and apply stick strip:
Decorate as desired. I put 12 boxes in no time. And actually was surprised how much candy it holds!
Then I thought - how can I make even more packaging from one sheet of paper using same die. I came out with very similar design:
 But check on the side - it is open.
You can make 4 of those from one sheet of paper! I run out of candy to put inside, so my treat looks a little empty, sorry.
You still start with 8.5 x 5.5 piece of paper (half sheet). Position die as shown:
Cut and remove what you just cut. Now move the die to the left, we only need that straight shape:
You will be able to cut 4 of those shapes from half sheet. With snips cut folding flap and part of the bottom:
Glue both pieces together and you have it! I love that litle closing portion that will hold it together.
My projects are very easy and great for mass production. Hope you and my class attendees will like those cute easy boxes.

Country Home In Review

Hello my stamping friend.
Holiday Catalog debuted 2 weeks ago with many exiting new things. Because I live in Florida and it is like 100 degrees right now - it is not easy for me to switch yet into holiday mode. When the catalog comes this time of the year - I always flip back and look for fall ideas first.This year I absolutely love Country Home Suite with the stamp, DSP and embellishments. It is so on trend! It was my first pick from Holiday Catalog. I used it in one of the swaps I participated:

I used some new blends to color the image. It was actually very fast to color.
I used small scallops cut in half for the boarder.
Hope you like this new set as much is I do.
Happy Stamping!
