Love Treat Tote

Hi everyone! I’m back with a quick and easy Valentine’s Day project for ClearSnap!

I started by cutting one side of the Tiny Dots Creative Card off with a Paper Cutter. The final holder/tote should measure 4 1/8″x5 1/2″. Next I measured one inch at the top of the card and measure one inch at the fold of the card and scored both at the one inch marks and folded.

I inked a decorative matboard piece (I used what I had in my stash) edges and outer corners with Rosebud Classic Pigment Ink. Once dry I inked around the edges of the diecut with Watermelon Classic Pigment Ink and let dry. I punched a heart from patterned cardstock, inked the edges of the heart punch with Rosebud Classic Pigment Ink and once dry adhered to the corner of the decorative diecut. I placed the swirl stamp with heart from the Thankful Clear Stamp Set onto the MISTI Stamping Tool and inked with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and stamp onto the decorative diecut. I added Clear Glitter Glue to the stamped image and let dry.
I placed a piece of an Adhesive Sheet on the back side of gold patterned cardstock and laid the “love” diecut from the Journaling Words Diecuts on the cutting plate plus the gold patterned cardstock and run through the Diecut Machine. I peeled the backing from the adhesive sheet and  placed the “love” diecut on the decorative diecut.  I punched a mini flower from patterned cardstock and place of the stamped heart and added a  Glossy Dot to the center of flower.

I placed candy in a clear bag and place in the candy tote. 

I punched two holes through the tote and clear bag, added ribbon though holes and tied off with a bow.

I finished by adhering the decorative diecut underneath the bow. These really are quick to make and would make great little gifts for your family, co-workers or for a children’s Valentine’s Day party. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Monday is wonderful and enjoy creating!

Jute Halloween Pocket Candy Holder

Hi everyone! Has the weather started cooling off where you live? Here, we are in the lower 80’s but the nights are starting to fill more Fall like so it won’t be long before I’ll be wearing layers and complaining about the cold weather. LOL 🙂
Well, I am here today to share a Halloween project I created several months ago but wasn’t able to share until now.

Eileen Hull’s Inspiration Team had teamed up with Crescent this past Summer and we got to play with samples of Jute Matboard (you can find this in full sheets 32″x40″ in custom framing shops art stores). For my project I thought the black jute mat board would make a great Halloween project. 

I started by cutting a Flower Pocket diecut from the jute matboard and from patterned cardstock (to line the inside of the pocket).

I cut the Medallions diecut out twice from patterned cardstock and put together according to the directions. I added thread, twine along with button, sequin and a Dew Drop to the medallion before adhering it to the corner of the pocket.

The other corner I added a jack o lantern sticker from my stash and finished off with sequins, flower, dew drop and thread.

I can either add candy (which I have none on hand…lol) or use it to keep all of my Halloween goodies in one place. 🙂
If you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your day is awesome and enjoy creating!
