By using the Sunflowers Dies, you can select any section of the Rainbow Glimmer paper for your sunflower background. That’s what gives the each of the sunflowers a different look. But, I think they are both beautiful.

Because I paired  the paper with the Ridicuously Awesome stamp set, I was able to convey my message of love and sunshine and happiness with my kiddos.

The Rainbow Glimmer paper coordinates perfectly with the Artistry Blooms DSP. Talk about vibrant colors and bright designs. Check it out on page 148 of the Annual Catalog.

I couldn’t discard even a smidge of the glimmer paper, so I’ve formed a little grid to dress up the inside of my card. On to that sweet little treat box.

This is one of the easiest little treat boxes ever!! The finished box is 4″ x 3″ x 2″, big enough to fill with lots of treats. Start that assembly line and crank out a batch to share with friends, family and of course those kiddos in your life.

I love the way you are able to die-cut different size labels from the Celebration Labels die set to create the perfect size images. Mango Melody is fast becoming one of my new favorite fall colors. It’s such a rich, warm tone and goes so well with Cajun Craze. That’s my top favorite fall color.

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.

Gift Wrapped Christmas Treat, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

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.

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.
