Aren’t these little treats cute? They make a nice little gift for a co-work, friend, baby shower, wedding shower, Christmas, Thanksgiving, really anytime you need a little something. This was my bonus project in my Blended Seasons Class.

Start by cutting your 2″ x 8″ Cello bag down to 5 1/4″. Then cut your 1″ x 3″ strips, you will need 4 of them. If you want to add more chocolates just don’t cut the bag down. You might be wondering what paper am I using……..This Designer Series Paper is in the Holiday Catalog, out on Sept. 5th. Its called Frosted Floral Specialty paper. Its very elegant and has a pretty sheen to it. This sheet is one of my favorites. Ok, back to wrapping the candy. You can use a couple of Glue Dots or even Snail to one end of the dsp. I used Snail. Next, pop them in your cello bag. If your paper is directional, make sure they are all going the same way.

You will have just enough room to fold down the top and staple the smallest Stitched Seasons Label. Fold the label in half and then staple to the bag. Easy peasy, right?

Now its time to decorate. I used a Stitched Shape Whisper White (smallest of the bunch) and then a Scalloped Circle in Blackberry Bliss. Stamp the leaves in Mint Macaron, add adhesive to the White Circle and adhere to the Scalloped Circle. Then add one Dimensional in the center and add it to your treat. It fits nicely with the Stitched Seasons Label. Stamp the sentiment and flag each end, attach with a couple of Dimensionals. To finish, add some Silver Metallic Pearls and a Linen Thread Bow (with a Glue Dot). Done!

I will be making more of these babies! Thank you to Mary Fish. I saw this treat on her blog a couple of weeks ago.

Botanical Tags Thinlit Dies & Clear Tiny Treat Boxes

Aren’t these just the cutest? Who knew you could make more than a tag from these Thinlits? They would make cute bridal shower, wedding, birthday gifts. Thank you to Donna Ross for her directions. She did the hard part, the math! LOL These treats are so easy to put together.

You will probably want to add these Thinlits to your next order. Oh, did I mention, you can get the matching stamp set, Botanical Bliss and save 10%? I used the stamp set for the little tags on top of the boxes. Place your order here or click on any of the photos at the bottom of my post. When you purchase the bundle, you are only $1.50 away from earning one BONUS COUPON. For every $50 you spend in August, you will receive a $5 Bonus Coupon from Stampin’ Up! that you can use in September.

Start with a piece of cardstock, 2″ x 81/2″.

Score: 2 1/16″, 4 1/8″, 6 1/8″ & 8 3/16″

Add Tear and Tape at the edge of your strip. Die cut each section like shown above.

Use your die brush to get all the pieces out.

Cut in between each flower. Pull off the release tape and carefully add your strip to your Tiny Treat Box. Make sure you put your box together and press on all the crease lines before you add your strip. Fill with candy. I used Hershey Kisses. Then decorate! Easy Peasy!

For the Bird die I used Night of Navy & the Powder Pink Mini Ruffled Ribbon.

For this flower I used Tranquil Tide and the matching Mini Ruffled Ribbon.

For this flower I used Berry Burst and the matching Ruffled Ribbon.

You can see how I decorated the top of the box. The leaves are in this die set too. I punched out a 3/4″ Whisper White Circle and attached the leaves with Tombow Liquid Glue, 2 sets on each side. Then I stamped the sentiment and used the Detailed Trio Punch on the left side of the tag and flagged the other end with the Banner Triple Punch. I attached that to the top of my 3/4″ circle. Then added a couple of Glue Dots to the top and tied the ribbon on top. Now when you untie the box, the sentiment stays on top.

Supply List: Edited to add: I used a 3/4″ circle punch not a 1 3/4″ circle punch.

You are my Sunshine!

Isn’t this a fun saying? I promise this will be my last “Brusho” card for a while. This too was a “reject” from my Monday card. I used two stamp sets, Stitched All Around Bundle & Painted Glass Stamp Set. I used Gamboge (orange) & Yellow Brusho Crystals onto Watercolor Paper. I also used Spray Starch instead of water to active the Crystals.

Once my Watercolor Paper was dry, I stamped the large circles in Poppy Parade from the Painted Glass Stamp Set. Then I took the Stitched Labels Framelits and embossed with that large die. You can see all the other dies I used in this photo as well.

I stamped the sentiment and die cut, (large circle with the stitches), then started layering all my pieces.

I started with the Burlap Ribbon, both circles adhered together and then put on with Dimensionals. The long label was die cut from Gold Foil Paper, then the Poppy Parade label, and the little heart I used a Mini Dimensional.  I still had the smaller Mango Melody circle, so I added it with Dimensionals too.

My card base is Mango Melody. It goes so well with Poppy Parade.

Cutting Guide:

4 1/4″ x 11″ Mango Melody Cardstock, scored at 5 1/2″

4″ x 5 1/4″ Poppy Parade Cardstock

3 3/4″ x 5″ Watercolor Paper

Scraps of Mango Melody & Poppy Parade & Gold Foil Paper
