Christmas 2017 Candy Cane Poinsettias

Hi Everyone!

Here is a sweet treat for classmates or coworkers, Candy Cane Poinsettias!

Festive and fun for the Christmas season, they are a thoughtful and tasty way to say Merry Christmas!

Start with a 6″ by 6″ piece of patterned paper, here I have used Quilted Christmas and Be Merry by Stampin’ Up!  Score by lining the diagonal points up on the 3/4″ line on the trimmer, and score.  Turn and repeat, until you have scored four times.  Trim the tabs as shown in the video, curl the “points” of the paper out, and glue the tabs in place.

Tie a ribbon around the box, then stamp and punch/cut the sentiment out.  For this one, I used Quilted Christmas paper, Merry Labels stamp set, real red ink, tranquil tide card stock and ribbon, and the layering ovals framelits.  The “to-from” was stamped and cut out with one of the Bunch of Banners framelits.  The poinsettia was made with real red, daffodil delight and tranquil tide card stock.

This one was created with the Be Merry paper from Stampin’ Up!, cherry cobbler, garden green, daffodil delight and whisper white card stock, cherry cobbler ink, garden green ribbon and I used an enamel shape in cherry cobbler.  The sentiment was stamped from the Seasonal Chums stamp set, and punched using the 1″ circle punch and the corresponding layering scalloped circle.

Start with a 2″ by 8″ cellophane bag and cut it down to 6″ long.  Fill it with your choice of treats, here I used candy cane kisses, and a candy cane.  Tie a ribbon around the bag to close it just above the candy level, which I filled to about 1″ above the top of the box.  Make sure the ribbon is snugged down, and the cellophane bag top is fluffed out above the ribbon, because that is where we will attach the poinsettia.

For the poinsettia, you can use whatever means you have to create one, whether you still have the framelits or the punch from previous years.  For this one, I used the leaves from the lemon punch.  I punched six sets of the two leaves, and glued them onto a 3/4″ circle base.  First, the six with stems were glued to the circle placing them evenly around, then after curling one end, the remaining six were glued down in between the first six.  Then, I punched a “center of the poinsettia” thingie from the blossom builder punch, but look around and see what you have that would work.

Then the poinsettia was stuck to the cellophane bag right above the ribbon using glue dots, and the flower was tucked into the box.  A very cute favor or gift.

I hope you enjoy this project and find it useful.  And, until we meet again, I hope your days are blessed.  ~Darby

Pumpkin Favor Box

Hi Everyone,

Today I have a very cute favor box, that reminds me of a cubic pumpkin.  It was made using the Foil Frenzy Designer Series Paper and the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch from Stampin’ Up!.

Scroll down for a link to the video for this project.

Aren’t they cute?  It would make a fun table favor or place card for Thanksgiving or another festive fall celebration.  I originally made them for the large Hershey’s Kisses, the ones that are just under 2″ diameter at the bottom.  They would fit the pumpkin just as it is.  Sadly, all of my large kisses went missing.  Instead, I made a small box for the inside bottom, just big enough for one Ferrero Rocher, or similar sized candy.

A Circle-Tab Closure Treat Purse

Hi Everyone!

Circle Tab Treat Purse

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!

Here is a video of the project:  Circle Tab Treat Purse

I hope you enjoy it!  May your days be blessed.  Smiles, Darby
