You could use the front of this card as a very quick and simple Christmas Card or you could use the fancy fold as I did. When you open the card, it opens up to a viewing window with lots of depth. It’s one of those “Wow!” cards that looks difficult, but it goes together quickly.

One of my all time most popular YouTube videos is the treat bag below. I made these in 2015 and you can find the original post here. Shelli Gardner, the cofounder of  Stampin’ Up! had demonstrated a similar project. I CASE’d it, copied it, but made it my own.

Since that time, most of the products I used have retired. I decided to make an updated version of this project… but I didn’t have much in the way of current Halloween themed products. The Gusseted Bags we carry now are smaller and I didn’t have any of them anyway. But my good friend Jeanne gave me a bag and some of spider web pieces cut with the Black Foil Sheets and the die from the Cauldron Framelits. The entire Toil & Trouble Suite of products would be great for this treat bag and the Spooky Sweets Bundle would be great as well. The paper I used instead was Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper, a Christmas themed design but I altered the color. I’m pleased with my new version.

Halloween is almost here, but you can still make this project. The only essential element of this project is the Gusseted Cellophane Bags. Use a different Designer Series Paper, altering the color as I did. Use ink to make a doily black instead of the spider webs. Or make it for another holiday or event. I’d love to see photos of your version!

Here is Caroline’s take on the treat bag. She made them for her grandson’s class. Nice job!

This box coordinates with the long envelope and card I shared in last week’s post. Yes, for those of you who are keeping track, this is a different box than the one from the one I talked about last week. I decided I really needed to redo the video and I was all out of Soft Suede 12″ x 12″ card stock. So I made the box a bit shorter, requiring just 8 1/2″ x 11″ card stock. That I had in all the colors, so I went with the Tranquil Tide to match the card better.

Yes, the Envelope Punch Board not only makes custom envelopes, it also makes boxes. They’re really made about the same way. You just need to add to the Paper Size and slide the paper over the same amount to make a second score line on each side. But what you add is actually on the diagonal. I’m good at math, but it was easier for me to actually make a bunch of boxes and measure.

So that’s what I did. I started with the smallest size envelope, added 1/4″ to the given Paper Size measurement, and then after the first punch, I slid the card stock over 1/4″ one each side to make a box. I made the next box the same way, but added another 1/4″. I kept going until the paper size got to 12″ x 12″. I measured each box to keep track of how much to add for the desired height.

Envelope Punch Board Boxes

But even I had trouble using that chart since I started with how much to add, not how high the box would be. When Margie V. asked for a cheat sheet for the Envelope Punch Board like I had done for the Gift Bag Punch Board Directions, I decided it was time to redo the chart.

I totally loved all the new Halloween products in the Holiday Catalog, but sorry to say, I just can’t buy it all. So I decided to make this Halloween Treat Bag with a stamp set that’s been around for at least 14 years, Lovely as a Tree, and Itty Bitty Greetings which has a greeting for just about everything you might want. Then I added a punch or two and a couple of new embellishments.

Old Style Case Storage

New Style for 2018

You do not need to invest lots of money to keep your stamp space tidy. This stamp pad storage costs pennies… 1/2 sheet of card stock for each stamp pad plus a sheet of foam core board for strength and separation and a bit of time. You can arrange your stamp pads any way that makes sense to you. I now have mine sitting on my window sill with a shelf over it keeps my stamp pads handy but off of my limited counter space. I could move them back to the cabinet where I had them before, but that cabinet is now filled with stamps, punches, and all those other supplies I keep in stamp cases. My entire stamp storage is 56 1/2″ wide and 3 1/2″ high. Another arrangement could be the In Colors on a 5th row and the specialty inks on the end.

I’ve been meaning to try this Bridge Fold layout. I think it’s very clever. I have seen some with a bridge that can fold down to make a kind of table. It’s great for a barbecue, kitchen stove, dresser, or that kind of thing. I went simple with just a vine. I used Animal Outing. I just love all the animals in this set! I thought the giraffe worked best, looking over the vine bridge.

My friend thought this card was going to be a lot of work. She imagined we’d be tearing and pasting all the little red (Cajun Craze) dots, but the Framelits did all the work for us. If you don’t have a Big Shot, you could substitute a bit of the coordinating Designer Series Paper over the side and bridge panels and just cut out the giraffe’s head with Snips.
