Snowman Treat Pouch



 
 
Front and side view of this fun little treat pouch -- another cute project to make with our
 E149 Snowman face.



 
Start with a 5" x 5" piece of lightweight cardstock and add the patterned papers and face as shown below.
.
I inked and stamped one dot from the face to make the buttons.   B06 Holly was stamped in black and colored in with green and red.
 

The green strips are 5/8" x 7/8" x 5" and the red belt is 5/8" x 5" plus a piece for the tie.  Black embroidery floss is the fringe.

On the reverse, use adhesive on the side back edge and the top edge and the bottom edge.  First attach the side forming a cylinder.  Glue the top edge flat, taking care to not let the bottom glue shut.  Insert treat and then fold the body the opposite direction and seal the bottom.

A  crimper is cute used on the top and bottom edges if your paper is not too thick. 

Happy Stamping!

Silent Night Card


I used my Silhouette to cut this tree and then stamped in a dark green with our O03 Silent Night stamp.  Our new H132 Silent Night with Stars is stamped in the same green.  Add some pretty layers and a twine bow to complete this card.

Boo to You


Our vellum candy card became this cute ghost treat so easily.  I used an oval die to round the top, added wiggly eyes and stamped our C21 Boo to You on the reverse in black and embossed.

A79 Trick or treat was the perfect sized stamp to make a little bag - the handles are quilting thread.

Add a bag of white treats and tie with a cute bow.  These are quick to make and so cute!

Happy stamping!

Snowman from Framelits die


It's always fun to find more ways to use our 'stuff' and this cute snowman was cut with the Sizzix framelits Easter egg die set.  I stamped our E149 Snowman face in black and embossed with clear embossing powder and colored his nose with a Copic marker.  To emboss the swirls leaving the face untouched, I made an embossing diffuser to custom fit our face.  I used four pieces of  4 1/4" x 5" cardstock  (80#) and cut  1 1/2" circles  in the same exact spot on each piece and taped the 4 pieces together.

The branches were from a Memory Box Woodland Branch die.

A torn piece of flannel completed the card.

Happy stamping!

Father's Day Candy Bar Wrapper


This cute wrapper has a Hershey's bar hidden inside.  Simply make the jacket according to the sketch below.


Cut and score as indicated, fold and add the little pocket flap and handkerchief, and tiny brads for the buttons.  I used a corner rounder for the bottom flaps.

The shirt is also a holder for the candy bar and is made as follows.


Cut and fold the shirt and stamp our G33 Tie stamp on patterned paper, cut out and attach under the collar edge.

Here's how it looks from the reverse with the candy bar inserted.  I taped down the flap on the candy bar to not distract from the shirt.


Insert inside the jacket and tie shut with a ribbon to which I added a tag made with our D59 Father's Day stamp.

Cute presentation for a sweet treat!

Happy Stamping,

Pam

6" x 6" Treat Holder

 


 
 
This little treat holder is so easy to make.  Just score a 6" x 6" piece of cardstock and punch holes as show below.  Tie and fill with your treat. How quick and easy was that. 
 
 
Our H114 Bunny front with a fuzzy pom pom tail and pink glitter ears made a cute spring embellishment.
 
Now I'm wanting to make one with fall papers for Halloween or Thanksgiving treats.  If you make one please post it to MorningStar's Pinterest Page to our Customer's Creations board.
 
Happy stamping!

Instructions for Cocoa Mug


Here is the mug that I posted in April and now it's August and I'm finally posting the instructions. 


I stamped our S06 Mug twice in clear and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I cut flaps and scored making a 1/2" fold on the left one which becomes the back of the package.  The cup on the right will become the front.  The inside of the handle needs cut out as well.


Black cardstock was cut to fit through a buckle die cut from gold shiny cardstock (I used the smallest buckle in the Memory Box Simple Buckles set).


Attach the white pieces and the belt and then add buttons (I stamped mine using one of the dots in the E149 Snowman face as it was just the right size.)

When the front is finished, attach the back and fill with your cocoa packet.

It's in the 90's here today and hot cocoa doesn't sound too inviting but cooler days are coming, so get busy on those fall projects now!

Happy stamping!
