I think this is such a fun treat holder, a treat purse with a closure that reminds me of the “snap” closure on the change purses.
Start with an 8×8″ piece of designer series paper and the envelope punch board. You will also need the Circle Tab Punch for the closure. Coordinate your inks with the paper, it is so easy to do with Stampin’ Up!
What a beautiful day to honor and celebrate all that we have here in America. We have so many blessings, and because they were endowed to us by our Creator, no man, nor any government, can take them away.
So, let us celebrate our freedom, and praise God for His providence.
Here is a quick little treat box in honor of the day. I know I am a bit late, but it will be here for next year, too. Of course, you can always tweak the colors for other occasions, but here it is…
The star end of the box flips up to reveal the gumballs inside. This box holds 4 gumballs that are about 1″ diameter. These are Dippin’ Dots gumballs that I found at Cracker Barrel.
Here is a picture tutorial for the project:
Whisper white card stock 3″ by 11″: Score 11″ side at 1″, 2 1/2″, 5″, 6″ and 10″. Score the 3″ side at 1″ on both sides.
Real red card stock, cut with the Swirly Scribble Thinlit die.
Dapper Denim Star: The bigger one is the retired Star Punch, the smaller one is from the current Wood Crate Framelits die.
Whisper White card stock: 3/4″ by 3″, stamped in Dapper Denim with “Let’s Celebrate” from the Born to be Loved stamp set.
Here is the latest box, and I made it to hold two Mini Cow Tales, a rather tasty treat of chewy caramel with a creamy center. I had to quickly make enough boxes to use up all of the Cow Tales, or else they would have ended up in my tummy! (And on my hips, but that is another story.)
I can also see many other treats fitting this box, as well as tissue-paper-wrapped jewelry or key chains.
I used the bold colors of the Eastern Palace Suite to create a stand-up note card holder. This holder has a latch that holds it closed, and a place for a mini-pen, and 4 mini note cards and envelopes. When opened, the card holder will stand up easel-style, so the recipient can access the note cards. The notes cards are made using 1/4 of a sheet of 8 1/2 by 11″ card stock, and when folded, measure 4 1/4″ by 2 3/4″. The envelopes are made on the envelope punch board.

Sorry for the delay, but I was learning how to post on YouTube, with all of the additional video editing stuff. I think I have gotten the hang of it, at least some of it, please let me know what you think!
Just start with a 6×6 square sheet of paper, and follow the directions in the video link above. I used the 6×6 size to create a purse that was the right size for a standard gift card. Although, as long as you start with a square, you can make these any size. You probably just need to lengthen the cut for the handle.
