Happy weekend! Are you playing in your craft room today?
I’m back with another project using the Die Cuts with a View Premium Halloween Spirit paper pad that will be hitting the shelves this season.
Treats aren’t just for the kids at Halloween … I mean, why should they have all the fun, right?! Oh, you could definitely make these for the kids, but I think I will be giving them out to a few of my friends!
These treat boxes open by lifting the top of the tombstone off. Inside I placed homestyle caramels in a pretty rows!
Let’s take a closer look at each box! This one features a cut owl perched on the top of the the greeting cut-apart. A glimmering gold spiderweb sticker adds spook-night shine!
The foiled accents of the paper and stickers from this paper pad were a bit tricky to capture with my camera, but they make these projects Oh, So Special! Both the “Boo” and the “Happy Halloween” are shiny gold foil on the box below.
This cat is pulling his scariest face to try and keep you away from this candy haul. The ghost may be frightened, but don’t you run away … there are caramels waiting for you inside! Ha!
The hardest part about making these cute treat boxes is going to be giving them away! They look just as cute as a Halloween decoration sitting all together in a row.

Enjoy your weekend!
Fall paper collections always put me in the mood for homebaked treats and connecting with neighbors. Today I am up on the Echo Park Paper blog with an apple barrel basket, created with the new Celebrate Autumn collection
, that would be perfect for taking to a dear friend. Inside I have tucked a couple of dishtowels, a set of ceramic measuring spoons, a paper acorn box filled with treats, and a jar of honey.
I painted the brown cardstock flower centers with THIS gold glitter water brush pen by Art-C
to make them shimmer and sparkle. (I couldn’t quite capture these on camera … I sooo wish you could see them in person! They are AWESOME!)
A peek inside the basket beckons the recipient to investigate!
Inside they will find the cutest acorn-shaped box filled with chocolates! (If you’d like to make your own acorn shaped box you can find the file HERE
. It is from the Acorn Autumn SVG Set by SVGCuts.com
A coordinating card is the perfect place to write a greeting! Be sure to tell your loved one how thankful you are for them in your life!
Can you think of someone in your life who deserves to know how grateful you are for all that they do for you? They would love this basket of goodies!

After several wintry days here in Utah, I’m ready for the warmth of sunny skies and the scent of blooming flowers! Today I am up on the Echo Park Paper Blog with a cheery, Carousel Gift Box using the beautiful Carta Bella Practically Perfect collection
… perfect for chasing the winter blues away!
This gift box makes me feel like I’m walking right down Cherry Tree Lane to an adventure in a chalk-drawn park! I used my Silhouette Cameo machine and a carousel box cut file from the Silhouette Design Store (Design #49865
). I LOVE using the Ultra White Felt Designer Cardstock
for projects like this! It’s sturdy, with a beautiful texture that makes your project feel even more opulent!
Each panel of the carousel is backed with the darling patterns included in the 6×6 paper pad
. I love the variety! I chose one of the panels to serve as the “front” of the box and added a bit more decorating to the lower left corner with one of the Chipboard Phrases
. Fussy cut flowers and solid blue die cut greenery (Spring Greenery Die Set
) add texture.
Finish the box with sparkly gems on the scalloped edge of the roof and the center of each star and you have a special gift box ready to be filled with a treat or two! Enjoy!

I hope you are having a great week!
It’s always fun to gather family together for Easter dinner or an Easter egg decorating party in the Spring. Why not create these darling Easter egg-shaped favor bags for your guests using the Dear Lizzy Stay Colorful collection
The first thing I did was to choose the papers for the flat decorative panels of each bag. I chose the marbled paper of the center egg first, because it reminded me of what eggs look like when you dye them! I then chose the yellow script and pink papers to coordinate with the marbled paper. The foiled designs of the paper pad look extra special on this project!
Next, I used a pair of scissors to fussy-cut several flowers and butterflies from papers in the pad. The foil outlines of the flowers really help them to stand out. They look so elegant and would be pretty adorning the plate of each person and the Easter dinner table. Next, I chose a Glittered Word Cardstock Die Cut sentiment
to go on the front of each bag.
These egg favor boxes are the perfect way to add that unique touch to your Easter party. Your guests are sure to feel special!
I’m already getting excited for Spring! And I can’t wait to enjoy it with my family and give them these delightful treat bags. See you again soon!
