Valentine Treat Holder!

Stampin' Up! Meant to Be Treat Holders - Peggy Noe - stampinup

It’s so much fun to give little gifts on Valentine’s Day! If you will be seeing a friend you can take one, if you go to the bank you can take one, you can give one to co-workers, a teacher or a grandchild! I’m hoping to have several on hand to take with me during Valentine’s week! 🙂 

Stampin' Up! Valentine Treat Holder - Peggy Noe - stampiup

For this cutie, I made a little open gift bag by first running some Lovely Lipstick card stock through the Big Shot with the Lace Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder. I just love the lace texture! Then I created the bag by scoring that card stock on the Simply Scored Score Board. I’ll have the pattern and measurements for you tomorrow in my video! The top of the bag is trimmed with a 1/2″ strip of All My Love Designer Series Paper, and the front is decorated with some hearts cut using the Be Mine Framelits Dies.

After the bag is filled with treats (I used traditional candy hearts), a fun tag on a stick was inserted into the candy! The tag is super simple to make by stamping a sentiment on Whisper White card stock and punching it with a 1-1/2″ Circle Punch. Then a background circle was punched out of Lovely Lipstick card stock using the 2″ Starburst Punch and attached to the sentiment piece. A wooden skewer stick cut in half was used to hold the circle sentiment.

Triangle Holiday Treat Holder!

Stampin' Up! Treat Holder - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Today’s project is an adorable Triangle Treat Holder for the holidays! It holds about 8 Hershey’s kisses and could also hold other small candies – or even jewelry!!! 🙂

One thing I really like about this cute box is the front lid flap. There’s a teeny tiny set of magnets that hold the flap down to the front of the box!

One tiny magnet is tucked under the designer series paper on the inside of the lid, and the other one is tucked under the paper on the front of the box. Adorable!

I got the idea for this box from my friend Julie DiMatteo over at the Paper Pixie! She has a fabulous video tutorial that gives every detail and every measurement, and it was very easy to follow. The link to her tutorial is HERE, and I highly recommend that you check it out!

The base of the box is an 8-1/2″ x 11″ sheet of Merry Merlot card stock. The designer series paper I used is Joyous Noel from our 2018 Holiday Catalog. Unfortunately it is no longer available ~ it was so popular it sold out! I happened to order several packages of it, so had enough to create these boxes. But any of our gorgeous designer series papers will work!

I’m going to make some of these to give to friends during the season. They would also be great for teacher gifts, or at each place setting on your holiday table! I think they are just adorable–thanks Julie for the idea!!


This is what you’ve been waiting for ~ a carry bag for your Stamparatus stamp positioning tool and all of the accessories! It’s beautifully made with lots of pockets to hold extra plates, grid paper, pads, everything!! 

This is a great GIFT IDEA! Order one for yourself and one as a gift for your stamping friend! More details on the tote and Stamparatus accessories here.

I’d love to hear what you think of today’s project! Please leave me a comment!

Dashing Along Treat Holder!

Stampin' Up! Lace Treat Holder - prettypapercards - stampinup

Did you know that we have a NEW designer series paper available? It’s true! Stampin’ Up! has released a previously exclusive designer series paper to all of us – and it’s beautiful! I love it ~ particularly a pink/red Victorian-looking paper that’s part of the pack.

Aren’t these pretty papers? There’s even a green newsprint 🙂 The paper I used has our beautiful Cherry Cobbler as the basic color.

And there’s a little surprise inside this treat holder: a tiny Snicker’s bite! The treat holder itself was made using a 2″ x 7″ strip of the designer series paper, with the top and bottom edges punched with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch.

Stampin' Up! Treat Holder - Peggy Noe - stampinup

The little Snicker’s bite was glued down to the center of the strip and then the punched edges were pulled up together and tied in a bow with a piece of Very Vanilla Lace Trim.

The bronze Snowflakes & Stars Wire Elements from the Holiday Catalog are so pretty. I tied one on the front of each of the treat holders.

I’m going to make quite a few of these cuties to give out all through the holidays. Hopefully this gives you a little help for making your own treat holders! Be sure to get some of this pretty Dashing Along Designer Series Paper ~ you’ll love it!

You Are Loved Spring Gable Box!

So I just can’t stop having fun with these Silver Gable Boxes! They are great for spring get togethers! Just fill them with a few different candies and decorate the outside of the box.

_Stampin' Up! Spring Gable Treat Box - Peggy Noe - stampinup

I covered the sides of the Silver Gable Boxes with 2″ strips of the Springtime Foil Designer Series Paper (FREE until March 31st with your $50 order!). Some pretty Smokey Slate 1/2″ Gingham Ribbon and Lemon Lime Twist 3/8″ Mini Striped Ribbon were used together to tie a bow on the top of each box. _Stampin' Up! Spring Gable Box - Prettypapercards - stampinup

A pretty silver foil butterfly was cut using the Bold Butterfly Framelits. Mini Glue Dots were used to adhere the butterfly to the knot part of the bow. It looks like the butterfly is landing right on the bow 🙂  The sentiment is from the new Blossoming Basket stamp set (FREE with a $100 order now through March 31st). It was stamped in Lemon Lime Twist ink on a 1/2″ strip of Whisper White card stock, then the end was clipped with scissors to form a flagged end. The sentiment strip was then attached to one of the tails of the bow with a mini clothes pin!

NEW Video Tutorial: How to Make a Gift Box!

Stampin' Up! Prettypapercards Handmade Gift Box - Peggy Noe - stampinup

I’m back today with a video tutorial on how to make these quick and easy gift boxes! I showed you one of these darling little boxes the other day on the Pals Blog Hop HERE. I’m personally making a bunch of these for my holiday gifts and I was thinking you might like to make some too! Here’s the video:

The foil paper takes this box from ordinary to FABULOUS! Stampin’ Up! has a nice selection of foil papers (gold, silver, copper), but I personally love this Champagne Foil. And when you run the piece on the top of the box through the Big Shot with the Winter Wonder Embossing Folder, it really creates a WOW factor!

Stampin' Up! Prettypapercards Gift Boxes - Peggy Noe - stampinup

In addition to the Champagne Foil Box, I’ve also made another box using Cherry Cobbler card stock and panels made from the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper (4 panels 1-3/4″ x 2-3/4″). The top of this box is a piece of Whisper White card stock cut to 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ and embossed with the same embossing folder. AND, you can get this embossing folder FREE from me!

Free Embossing Folder!

Place an order for $75 or more in my online store, and use my Monthly Host Code for November QHJE9JVE, and you will receive from me as your FREE GIFT the Stampin’ Up!
