Have you ever seen mini pizza boxes? I hadn’t…until Stampin’ Up! came out with them! 🙂 This decorated mini pizza box is my interpretation of this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge. Here’s the Tic Tac Toe Board we are working with:
For my project I used the first column down on the left (ribbon, floral, patterned paper) and the middle row across (floral, yellow, die-cut/punch). I started out working with the items in the first column down, but after I finished my pizza box I realized that the middle row across also applied!
This project has no stamping, did you notice? It’s true! The top of the pizza box is covered with the beautiful Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper. And the pretty sunflower is simply cut out of the same paper! Easy, right?
So what do you put in these little cuties? Several Ghiradelli Chocolate Squares would fit, or a few tea bags in their foil packages. But my favorite thing to put in these boxes is a set of little 3 x 3 handmade cards with envelopes. It makes a lovely gift!
I love paper rosettes, what about you? They can be made by hand and I have to say, it does take a while. So if I ever find them pre-made I grab them up right away! Well, Stampin’ Up! has made me very happy – the new Holiday Catalog has a darling holiday kit called Be Merry, and this kit has 10 (seriously, 10!) beautiful pre-made white and gold rosettes!
Look at these pretty guys! These rosettes are a full four inches around! The photo above was adjusted with an antique shading, and shows the white rosettes with the gold rim. There are five of these and 5 gold dotted ones.
Now I have to tell you that I didn’t put the kit together as I was supposed to 🙂 I couldn’t help myself, I just had to do a little something different! Instead of making the Christmas rosettes, my mind kept telling me…bows and lace! And these In Color Bitty Bows just look so cute right in the center of the rosettes! What can I say?
Aren’t they adorable? These can be used as ornaments, package toppers, they could make a wreath, or even hang on a piece of jute and be a banner for the fireplace!
All of the Stampin’ Up! products are so versatile, I just love that. I’m going to put together another kit for you in the next few weeks so that you can see it assembled with the red and green holiday theme – as it’s supposed to be!!

Sour cream containers are such great treat holders, and they are so easy to make! Today I have a video tutorial to show you just how easy they are!
For this project I’ve used the gorgeous Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack. These papers come in a 6 x 6 size, which is perfect for the sour cream containers, and isn’t each paper pattern beautiful?
Delicate ribbons and lace tie the openings of the containers together until you are ready to open them and eat the yummy treats. I imagine these being served at a lovely English tea and they would have nuts in them 🙂
Here’s the video tutorial for you with step-by-step instructions:

Why is it so fabulous? well just look at these tabs I punched out for my catalog! They are cute and they are just what I need to help me find things quickly in the catalog!
What else can you use the tab punch for? The photo above is from Stampin’ Up! and it shows a cute little pocket card with a tab that pulls the card out of the pocket! Is that darling or what?
For my tabs I chose cardstock colors I thought looked good together and with the catalog front and just started punching away! You can see that the tab has a small rectangular base that adheres to the page or paper. You simply punch, fold the punched tab in half, and adhere the front and back rectangular bases to the page or paper. It’s quick and easy! For my tabs I used Fast Fuse Adhesive to adhere them to the catalog pages. Then I used a black felt-tip pen to write the words on the tabs.
This is a great punch to have in your collection as I know it’s going to be used a lot! For more details about the punch, just click on the photo above! And, it’s a great time to order the Tab Punch as it will count toward your Bonus Days Coupon!

My friend and downline, Robin Daus, has created some beautiful luminaries and I just have to show them to you! Aren’t they gorgeous?
For this luminary she’s used the Merry Medley stamp and embossed it using copper embossing powder on vellum paper. Cool, right? I got to see this in person and let me tell you, it’s amazing!!
This Chanukah luminary is embossed in silver embossing powder, also on vellum paper. She’s used the now retired Jewish Celebrations stamp set.
The vellum is trimmed with our Silver Foil. It’s genius the way she’s done this as it really grounds the luminary and makes it feel solid.
Truthfully, the luminaries are very light. They are simply rolled to about a 3-1/2″ diameter and the edges affixed together. Just set the rolled luminary over a battery-operated tea light and there you have it! Darling!
Thanks for stopping by today! Robin doesn’t have a blog, but she will see any comments you leave for her 🙂 Also, if you hae any questions for her, leave it in a comment and she will answer you!!
