Hello my friends! It’s September 1st! That means it’s new Stampin’ Up holiday catalog day! Yay! It also means it’s day one of my 12-day Fall for Holiday Catalog Countdown. Each day I’ll be sharing a new project here on the blog and I’ll also be sending it out via email (with some special perks for my subscribers… so be sure to jump on my mailing list here).
Being September 1st, it also means back to school for many kiddos — some may have even already gone back already (is summer really over??)! So today, I’m sharing a project featuring the“Year of Cheer” Suite(pages 36-37 of the Holiday catalog).
As the kids start school, it’s never a bad idea to “bribe” the teacher a little, right? And what better way to butter up the teacher than with a little chocolate! So today’s project is this adorable (and easy!) treat box. In addition to the Year of Cheer Suite, I also used the envelope punch board as a major component of this project. It’s such a handy little tool in the craft room! So here’s the project:
I made a video to show you how to make this little guy — super easy when you have the envelope punch board. I love, love, love the new Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper. Metalics are so in right now, and this paper is truly gorgeous in person! I show the paper close-up in the video below so be sure to check it out. You get three pieces of four single-sided designs in the package for just $13. Click the picture below to watch my video:
And here’s another photo of the project… this time with it open so you can see the treat inside:
Of course, you could put any kind of treat you wanted in here… it fits two Ghiradelli chocolates perfectly, but you could also put a pair of earrings, a necklace or any small trinket in there, too.
And while this stamp set is certainly not designed for a “back to school” gift, that it was I really love about it. I see so much potential with this set — of course there is Christmas and weddings, but you can also use it for New Year’s Day and maybe even some fall projects… the circle elements and that little string of dots totally scream wreath to me.
Okay… that’s it for day one. I’ll be back again tomorrow with another fun, fall crafting project. Don’t forget to sign up for my mailing list so you’ll get in on some super secret perks just for my subscribers. And be sure to RSVP for my online Facebook party to wrap up this Fall for Holiday Countdown on Tuesday, September 12!
