Holiday Extravaganza Project 6! Fry box filled with treats!
Here are a couple of simple Easter boxes made from the scallop square die. To make the box just score where two scallops are. Then turn the box 90 degrees and score where 3 scallops are. Cut and fold into box. These boxes would be fun at Easter dinner as place settings with names on them.
Punches: 1 3/8″ Circle, Bird Builder (wings, and chicken’s legs from the stem on punch), Owl (eyes), BoHo Blossom (hair on chicken)
Punches: 1″ & 3/4″ Circle Punches, 5-Flower Petal (retired), Itty Bitty Shapes (tail)
I am a fan of PEEPS, not necessarily the taste, but the LOOK of them! These are the treats I’m serving today for my Girl’s Day/Night Out class!
The cookie cutters were found HERE. I used the cookie and royal icing recipe found on this blog HERE.
Stampin’ Up’s clear envelopes are the perfect size for packaging these cookies!!! Add a little Easter grass and you have a perfect little PEEP TREAT for your favorite peeps! 🙂
I saw this apple card idea on Connie Collin’s blog and KNEW this was exactly what I wanted to CASE for my Girl’s Day/Night Out class this month. This card was a HIT! (This card is a CASE of a CASE, the original card came from Lynn Pratt and you can find her blog and free template HERE!
Here is the back side of the apple card.
Here is the treat that I served. I found the recipe for this mock “Nothing Bundt Cake” HERE. I also used my witch legs again!
My sweet friend Nancy Riley made me one of these and I KNEW my peeps would love these as well! We made these at my Girl’s Day/Night Out class tonight.
Here is a slide show of our Holiday Extravaganza from last week! As you’re watching it, some of the photos are small. If you click on the photo during the slideshow, it will enlarge. ENJOY!
In case your wondering about the background song, this was written and performed by our family friend KC Barras! Isn’t he talented? I LOVE his style of music! His website is HERE. You can download the songs from iTunes HERE.
This is a closeup of the tag. There were (5) 1″ circles used to make this 3-D tag.
This card features a packet of cocoa inside! I received a similar one from Connie Babbert last year at Convention and have always loved her idea! You can view her original project HERE.
This project holds Wrigley’s Spearment Gum inside! This is another “Connie Babbert CASE”! Can you tell I LOVE her work? You can find her original project HERE, along with a FREE tutorial on her blog. This card I featured on my blog a couple of days ago. I showed how you can recreate this card HERE.
The next 3 projects were designed by one of our weSTAMPERS, Pam Wood! Pam Nice work Pam! Pam’s blog can be found HERE.
I made another card, this time turning the MITTEN PUNCH into the oven mitt. When I first designed this card, the mitten punch wasn’t out yet – that’s why I hand-cut it. The MITTEN PUNCH would be a better way to go for a workshop! I added the scalloped edge by cutting a small piece off the scalloped square punch. I felt like the mitten punch needed to be a bit longer so it looked more like an oven mitt.
Do you want to recreate this? You can order the items on my Stampin’ Up website HERE. Most items are in the Holiday Catalog which can be found on my right sidebar.

Here is one of the cards that we made at the Holiday Extravaganza!! I designed this card and also used this in my Control Freak swap a couple of months ago. This is a diorama style card. The base of the card is a piece of 12″ x 5 1/2″. You score the 12″ side at: 1/2″, 4″, 4 1/2″ & 8″.
The cookie sheet is created with the Two Tags die. You cut two of just the ends of the larger tag (the part with the rounded edge as shown above) out of Brushed Silver cardstock. Score them at 5/8″ and 7/8″ from the rounded side. Fold on the score lines (mountain fold, then valley fold).
Then cut a piece of Brushed Silver Cardstock to 3″ x 2 3/4″ and adhere that piece ontop of the ends of the cookie sheet. You can see what I mean by the photo below and how you get that “3-D” look.
The oven mitt was just hand drawn (and then cut out with my Silhouette machine because I had to cut so many of them!!)
I will post more photos of projects and cap it off with a slide show of our event. Check back!!
Here’s a card we made at Stamp Club this month! Becky Roberts sent me one of these cards last year (see her card HERE), and I could feel a CASE coming on! She has awesome instructions on how to make the elf boot using punches. While you’re over there, check out her 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS! You will find DARLING CHRISTMAS PROJECTS!
Here’s a fun Halloween treat! I made the witch’s feet just like the elf feet above! To make the legs, I put DSP on thick tagboard, and taped Popsicle sticks in the ends of them.
The recipe to the Microwave Caramel Corn can be found HERE.
This project was a FREEBIE if you recruited last month (or got recruited)! It was SO MUCH FUN to create and I love how I can change out the photo each year for Halloween!

Here’s a fun interactive MUMMY card, featuring the PeekaBOO Window Frame Die!
- Stamp Set: Googly Ghouls, Teeny Tiny Treats
- Ink: Basic Black
- Paper: Basic Black, Soft Suede, Naturals Ivory
- Accessories: Googly Eyes, 1 3/8″ Circle Punch, Peekaboo Window Frame Die, Muslin (torn into about 3/4″ strips), Alphabet Die (retired)
I didn’t wrap the muslin all the way around the card. I just cut them in strips and taped them to the back of the Soft Suede layer so the card wouldn’t get so thick. I did wrap the very top one all the way around and tied it in a knot in the front.
