We have an absolutely awesome team! For this team meeting, we had some of our team demonstrate ideas for gift giving. Cathy did an “over the top” job with the Little Treat Box! She came up with a gift box for each month of the year! Here they are with some of her notes for each one.
Next week tune back in for more gift ideas from Linda and Peggy.
January – Cathy cut one side off and used Snowflake Splendor ribbon. Polar bear is from Warm & Toasty stamp set #152615
February – On back side, cut off scallops and added a heart. On front side, fold down and add a heart. DSP is Peony Garden #152483 on sale this month
March – A pot of gold! Fold all sides down on die cut Basic Black CS Treat Box and use 4 hearts to make a clover
April – An Easter lamb from Menagerie Dies #155179 on In Good Taste DSP #152494, also on sale this month 15% off. Don’t fold sides in all the way and adhere.
May – Flowers for Mother’s Day. Cathy made a Peony from Prized Peony dies #152701 and Peony Garden DSP for the Little Treat Box. Same fold as April. Sides do not come in all the way to score lines and adhere.
June – Just in time for Fathers day; a tool box! Color a candy stick or wooden skewer and insert through scallop sides for a tool box handle. DSP is In Good Taste
July – Firworks! To keep candies aligned, wrap a candy nugget piece with each side of Treat Box to give more stability. Attach a “wick” and star to top of candy. Cut front scallop off. Used Playing with Patterns DSP #152489 (also on sale) on top of Real Red CS to be more stable.
August – Again, fold front side down and attach butterfly on to Forever Greenery DSP #152492 15% off this month! This works well for Birthday with a gift card inside.
September – Notice the “Remember” stamped on the side of velum treat box, this is in memory of 911. Glitter star Ornaments are attached to each scalloped side #153543 and a battery tea light is put inside. The scalloped sides are die cut from In Good Taste DSP #152494 and on sale this month.
October – Pumpkin time! Use Plaid Tidings DSP #153527 15% off this month and cut off all sides and attach a pumpkin punched from Apple Builder Punch #150663
November – Napkin holder and Favor treat box. Use retired punches to make turkey. For Napkin holder, cut off the sides before adhering to a treat box together and just adhere those 2 sides together for napkin ring. Attach a punched pumpkin to embellish napkin ring.
December – make a Little Treat Box with Real Red CS and cut a strip of the White felt to rundown center front. Add punched circles for buttons and either foil or embellishment for buckle. Glimmer paper could also be used for Santa hat.
December – Elegant poinsettia fussy cut form Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper attached to a Little Treat Box die cut from Tis the Season DSP – also on sale this month. And a napkin ring with also made to match. The Beaded pearls add so much to the poinsettia! Makes it pop out as a real flower!
***Note Several of the Little Treat Boxes Cathy made are larger….here’s how she made them bigger…..Use a piece of card stock measuring 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Put die and card stock in die cutting machine and run HALF way through; roll out and TURN and then run HALF way through. You will end up with a larger treat box. It is helpful to score your piece of card stock at 5 1/2 so you have a plum line for the middle of treat box when cutting.
Thank you Cathy!!! Excellent! And below is a shadow box she made too! It is so beautiful in person!!!
Another easy, easy option are the Mini Coffee Carrier with Mini Coffee Cups for a gift of coffee, gift card, and Keurig cups or Hot Chocolate is a sure pleasure on cold winter days.
Warm Wraps Dies #153521 used here with Festive Felt Sheets #153516 and Sweetest Border Dies #153559 with Red Velvet Paper #153490
