Gift Wrapped Christmas Treat

Gift Wrapped Christmas Treat

Let’s switch gears a bit. Today, let’s create a quick and easy gift wrapped Christmas treat. There’s a couple of reasons this one can be easily massed produced. First, the Gift Wrapped Bundle includes a punch. Second, the mini pizza boxes are all cut and scored, ready to decorate.

Because I punched a couple of bow images, I was able to create a very dimensional embellishment for the treat box. By running it through the Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folder, it was easy to add lots of great interest and texture. Not only that, spritzing the embossed images with the Champagne Shimmer Mist made the bow very festive and sparkly.

A bellyband is alwasy a great way to not only hold your treat box shut, but to decorate it to your heart’s content.

And what says Christmas treats more than custom wrapped candy? It’s so easy to wrap Hershey Nuggets with a 1″ x 3″ piece of DSP. I’ve used the Tis’ the Season DSP pack to choose my candycane pattern.

The mini pizza boxes come 8 to a package, making them a very economical option. The Gift Wrapped Bundle should be one of the first things on your holiday craft supply list. You’ll thank me later.

Halloween Candy Cone

Halloween Candy Cone

Booing is a Halloween tradition of surprising neighbors with treats during the month leading up to the holiday. Families sneak special treats onto neighbors’ or friends’  or kiddos’ porches after dark. I think my Halloween Candy Cone is the perfect treat for just that.

Halloween Candy Cone, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

There’s lots of reasons you’ll want to create multiples of my Halloween Candy Cone. First, it’s easy. Second, it’s large enough to fill with lots of treats. Third, you can hang it on the door handle, ring the bell and BOO!

My plan? Hang a couple of these on my grandkids door, ring the bell and hide. When they open the door, let them know they have been BOOED!!

To create both the ruffle and the rosette, you only need a 6″ x 12″ piece of DSP. In today’s video tutorial, I’ll show you a shortcut  to get all your scoring done at once. Sharing little tips and tricks with you makes me happy.

Halloween Candy Cone, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Don’t let the rosette scare you. I’ve got some tips on creating that as well. Be sure to have a silicone craft sheet and hot glue gun and you’ll be set. Here’s how my Halloween Candy Cone will look on the door.

The Magic in the Night Suite is filled with gorgeous designer series paper, black glitter paper, iridescent pearls, a CobWeb 3D Embossing Folder and some gorgeous metallic mesh ribbon.  Did you know, that if you want it all, you can enter one item number? That makes ordering super quick and easy.

Hallow's Night 2-4-6-8 Treat Box, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Because the Hallows Night Magic Bundle has a 8-piece cling set and an 8-piece coordinating die set, you’ll be creating Halloween cards and treats one after the other.  I’ve got a great project to start you off. My 2-4-6-8 treat box measures 8″ tall by 2″ each square. That gives you lots of room to add those special treats.

Hallow's Night 2-4-6-8 Treat Box, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

So many reasons to order a couple packages of the Black Glitter Paper. The glittery paper is just right for treat packaging. First of all, it’s glittery, but the glitter doesn’t cover you and everything else. No glitter shedding!  Second, it has a black core, so no white edges.  Third, you can use our Black Stampin’ Dimensionals to make everything seamless.

Hallow's Night 2-4-6-8 Treat Box, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

My color combo from my Hallows Night Magic treat box was dictated by the gorgeous Magic in this Night DSP. The palette is Blackberry Bliss, Cajun Craze, Pretty Peacock and Whisper White. And, have you seen the beautiful Metallic Mesh Ribbon?  It can be used for lots more that just your Halloween projects.

Hallow's Night 2-4-6-8 Treat Box, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Here’s how the magic happens.

  • Box – Blackberry Bliss CS – 8 1/2″ x 10 1/4″, on the 8 1/2″ side score @ 2, 4 ,6, and 8. Make a tick mark @ 3″ and 7″. Turn to the 10 1/4″ side and score @ 2″ and 8 1/4″. Using your stylus and ruler create the scored triangles using the ticks at 3″ and 7″.

Bonanza Buddies Shaker Card & Treat Box

Bonanza Buddies Shaker Card & Treat Box

Whose ready for some fun? How about this super cute interactive shaker card and treat box, created with the Bonanza Buddies bundle?

Bonanza Buddies Shaker Card & Treat Box, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Ok, I know you are smiling. How can you not? Just the designer series paper alone makes me happy.  As soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to create a shaker card. So, let’s start things off with that.

Bonanza Buddies Shaker Card, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

First of all, I needed a bright, happy color palette. I’ve used Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White and  Terracotta Tile. Don’t you just love the balloons in the background. It was easy to pull the colors from the paper.

Bonanza Buddies Shaker Card, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Because I needed some pretty bits to fill my shaker, I cut some hearts using the die from Be Mine Stitched. As a result, I was able to fill the shaker with two colors of the hearts for a truly happy card.

Bonanza Buddies Shaker Card, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

The Bonanza Buddies bundle is filled with all sorts of cute little critters. I chose the toucan for this card. And of course, he needed a party hat and present to complete the scene.

Bonanza Buddies Shaker Card, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Finally, I added a small strip of the DSP inside the card to tie things together.  And I just love it when the set includes larger sentiments to use as inside greetings. Now let’s dive into the sweet little treat box.

Bonanza Buddies Treat Box, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

While I’ve designed this for a party favor, you could easily adapt it into a gift box for the birthday boy/girl. Another sweet little Bonanza Buddy seems to be celebrating the big day.

Bonanza Buddies Treat Box, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Because the set is a two-step set, it’s super easy to line up the little face on the koala. And just look at how much personality that guy has.
