Open Treat Box

Place the treat box paper flat on a level surface with the curved opening facing away from you. Cut off the top flap with the curved opening using the first horizontal scored line as your guide. Then cut the bottom flap using the last horizontal scored line as your guide.

Starting on the top left side of the paper, score 1-3/4" (4.4 cm) from the left flap’s last prescored line, scoring the new line from the top of the paper to the bottom. Repeat on the right side, scoring 1-3/4" (4.4 cm) toward the center of the paper from the right flap’s last prescored line.

Once you have your newly scored lines in place, cut off the left and right flaps. Make sure to start at the top of the paper and only cut to the first prescored line of the thin middle section. Do not cut away the middle section’s side flaps. Instead, cut along the middle section from the left and right side, going up to the new score line.

Fold your box along the scored lines and assemble using the Tear & Tape Adhesive.

Once your box is assembled, select two belly bands and cut them down to a 2-7/8" x 3-1/4" (7.3 x 8.3 cm) rectangle. Adhere the rectangles to the top of the completed box, attaching one on top of the other on alternate lengths.

Wrap the string around the box and tie a bow. Stamp the sentiment in Garden Green onto one of the precut gift tags. Place the tag beneath the string, threading the bow through the tag’s opening. Use a Stampin’ Dimensional to the underside of the tag to keep everything in place!

Congrats Card

Cut a piece of Pool Party cardstock to a 7" x 9" (17.8 x 22.9 cm) rectangle, folding it along the middle to create a 5" x 6" (12.7 x 15.2 cm) base card. Next, cut out two 5-1/2" x 4" (14 x 10.2 cm) rectangles from the Pool Party cardstock and set one aside. Die cut the other rectangle using the diamond background die from the Organic Beauty Dies. Make your card front by adhere the diamond piece on top of the rectangle you set aside.

Adhere the card front using Dimensionals to your base. Place it at a slight angle for a funky twist.

Using a polka dot belly band from the kit, cut a 3/4" (1.9 cm) strip from the longest side and fold it along the scored lines with the center lines face up and the outer lines face down. Notch the ends of the folded belly band to create the banner. Then adhere the banner to your card front.

Adhere the precut flowers and leaves from the kit to the banner. Create more greenery by stamping a few leafy sprigs from the Christmas Banner Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green ink. Use the coordinating Christmas Banner Dies to cut out and layer. Don’t forget to add Daffodil Delight Glossy Dots to the center of each flower!

Next, cut a 1-3/4" x 1/2" (4.4 x 1.3 cm) strip of Crushed Curry cardstock. Stamp your sentiment in VersaMark ink, dust silver embossing powder, remove the excess, and heat emboss.

Bring out that metallic shine by creating a small bundle of Simply Elegant Trim to place behind your sentiment and adhere them to the banner using Dimensionals. Gorgeous!

Special Delivery Card

Cut a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock into a 6" x 6" (15.2 x 15.2 cm) square. Fold in half to make your card base.

For the card front, cut a 3-7/8" x 6-6/8" (9.8 x 13.3 cm) piece of Basic White cardstock. Stamp the With Love sentiment three times—once in Parakeet Party, Melon Mambo, and Coastal Cabana ink. Once dry, emboss your card front using the Into the Clouds Embossing Folder. Adhere your card front to the card base.

Use the Cloud Punch on a piece of Basic White cardstock. Stamp the Special Delivery sentiment in Costal Cabana ink onto the cloud. Adhere the cloud to the top of your card with Dimensionals. (Don’t cover the stamped hearts!)

Stamp the For Your Special Delivery sentiment onto another piece of Basic White cardstock in black ink. Fussy cut each word so that you can place them individually on down your card front.

Adhere four precut stars from the Good Things Come in Small Packages Paper Pumpkin kit to the card front. Embellish with dazzling Heart Pearls for extra dimension. Use a Stampin’ Write Marker in Crushed Curry to delicately dot your card front and add some extra detail.
