Holiday Treat Bag

So I had a little extra time today to add a special treat for a party I'm going to this weekend. My new down line is hosting her first party and wanted my help. I'm going to be showing her how to demo my Snowflake Card. I can't wait to show all the ladies that beautiful card. 
So to help her out I wanted to make a little take home treat box. 
I found this box on Pinterest. Lisa Brown is the demonstrator that came up with this really cute box. She has a video on her site 
She showcases a Halloween box and I wish I had seen it sooner. 

What I used:
Card stock 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 ( I used the Season of Style DSP Stack. It's already cut to those dimensions)
Score it at 2, 3, 5, and 6 ( on the 6 1/2 side)
Rotate and score at 1 inch
For the tag I stamped Tags 4 You (131823) with coordinating punch
1 x 6 1/2 strip to fold over
Rhinestones and a bow
Fold all your scored marks and cut off the smallest corner. Once that is done cut up the bottom to the 1 inch mark. 

Add adhesive to the smallest flap and fold up box. Also close up the bottom. 
Add your treat and staple closed. Then add your decorations and you have an adorable treat that anyone would love.

Snowflake Triple Stamped Card

Hello to all my Busy Bees'

I wanted to share with you today this wonderful card that I made at a recent stamp party. This is one of the fave cards that I do that the girls just love to make.
So lets get started:
Island Indigo Card stock:  5 1/2 x 8 1/2   Scored at 4 1/4
4 1/4 x 3  and another 3 3/4 x 1 3/4
Whisper White Card Stock: 5 1/4 x 4, 4 x 2 3/4, and 3 1/2 x 1 1/2
Also an extra piece for your snowflake: 3 x 4

I used the Festive Flurry Stamp Set (131781) from the Holiday Catalog (framelits too)
and Sassy Salutations (126707) from the Annual Catalog.

The colors for the snowflakes are Coastal Cabana (131175), Smokey Slate (131179), and Island Indigo (126986) for the greeting. 

First I attached the 5 1/4 x 4 and 4 x 2 3/4 Whisper White Card Stock together with a small piece of snail adhesive. Just a small piece because you are going to take it apart after you stamp it. 
 Center the smaller piece onto the lager one.
Then stamp your Snowflakes

Once your done stamping then gently pull apart the two piece of paper. Don't worry if it rips a little, your gonna cover it up and only you will know!
Then attach the larger piece to your card and the smaller one to your colored card stock. 
 Then attach together using snail adhesive.
Once that is set the stamp your greeting on the smallest paper, attach to the colored card stock, add dementionals and center it onto your card.

Now for your Snowflake!!!!! 
( Sorry for the picture quality... it started getting dark in my room so I had to turn on my light) 

First we stamp our snowflake using Versa Mark Ink (102283)
 Add Heat ans Stick Powder (100625) to your stamp.
 Heat with Heating Tool (129053).
 Add your glitter (132205)- Holiday Catalog
 Cut out with Framelits (132193) and the Big Shot (113439)
 Add pearls (119247) and then add to your card!

Hope your enjoyed that card! It looks so nice all put together! Have a Merry Christmas Stampers!
