Echo Park Paper: The Cookies Were Hung by the Chimney with Care

Delivering delicious, homemade treats to neighbors and friends is one of those iconic holiday traditions that I adore. If you are going to take the time to take a treat, why not package them in an adorable way while you are at it?!

I used the Dk. Blue/Gold Solid Paper for the bottom of the box, and then created the top with patterned papers from the Volume 2 Collection.
The window allows a peek inside to the homemade goodies. You can use several types of materials for the window; re-purposed clear packaging, a sheet protector, or a transparency. I chose to use a heavy-weight clear presentation report cover. These can be purchased at your local office supply or copy store.

The top of the stocking is decorated with die cuts from the Ephemera and Frames & Tags Ephemera packs. I also used the Jolly Branch Trio Die set to cut several pine branches from a green 6×6 patterned paper. They look so festive mixed in with the poinsettia and greenery handcut from the Berry Christmas paper.

The die cuts have added dimension with a few of the small chipboard word stickers and the shiny enamel dots. The gold glitter enamel dot made the perfect flower center for the poinsettia!

At the bottom of the stocking I created a pennant strip from 6×6 patterned papers to anchor the “Noel” chipboard piece. A couple of handcut pinecones from the Berry Christmas paper are the perfect accents!

Everyone loves homebaked goods during the holidays! This stocking box would be the perfect way to deliver them. I hope you feel inspired to create your own holiday treat packaging!

Echo Park Paper: Pumpkin Muffin Tote

Happy Fall, friends! The minute the weather turns cool my family and I start craving pumpkin chocolate chip muffins. We always make several batches; some of the batches are for us to eat, but then we also like to make additional batches to take to our friends in the neighborhood.

This year I used the A Perfect Autumn collection by Echo Park Paper to create a darling tote to package up our muffins. The tote fits 9 muffins stacked in three rows inside a cellophane bag perfectly, and is sooo much cuter than a zip-top bag!

I created a tag for this bag by trimming one of the 3×4 Journaling Cards to a smaller size. I then notched the top two corners to create a tag shape.

These would be so easy to make ahead of time to have on hand. I used three different patterned papers for my totes and then used the Leaves & Acorn Die Set and the Carta Bella Hello Fall Layered Pumpkin Die Set to decorate the front.

I varied each bag a bit by using different tags and elements to accent the die cut pumpkins and leaves. On the polka dotted bag, I fussy-cut the word “FALL” from one of the 3×4 cut apart Journaling Cards.

Next, I added the squirrel and leaf sticker from the Element Stickers. I used a small chipboard circle with an acorn to accent the squirrel and added a sprinkling of brads above his head for some dimension.

The orange gingham bag is decorated with several more Element Stickers clustered together. I then added the Fox tag from the Frames & Tags Ephemera pack to the handle.

Spellbinders: Halloween Shaker Cupcake Toppers

Yum, yum … give me some! Are you going to a Halloween party this year? Maybe you’re in charge of bringing cupcakes to the office party, or your child’s class party? I always love a festive cupcake (Mmmmm!) … especially when it comes dressed for the occasion!

Today I have a fun twist on the classic cupcake topper … Shaker Cupcake Toppers!

Spellbinders and Scrapbook.com were kind enough to send me a Platinum 6 die cut machine and a couple of their die sets to play with! Last week, I shared a quick and easy gift idea using the Textured Flowers die.

Today, I am playing with the Witch on Broom dies!

When I saw that witch, I knew right away that I wanted her to be flying across a spooky moon … and then I saw the bats! What if I create a moon shaker with the bats inside?!!! YES!!!! … So that is exactly what I did.

I added them to the top of decorative straws in Halloween colors, and then added ribbons and square buttons tied with black twine. The witch, double-cut and layered in orange foil and black cardstock, floats across the front of the moon shaker with the help of a few foam dots.

I created some cupcake wrappers with my Silhouette Cameo 3 machine to coordinate. So cute!

Bella Blvd: Baseball Popcorn Box Video

*Take me out to the ballllll-game! Take me out with the crowd!!!*

Hello, Friends! I’m up on the Bella Blvd. Blog today with a process video showing you how to create a Baseball themed Popcorn Box using the brand new Bella Blvd. Baseball collection!

Jana Eubank Bella Blvd Baseball Popcorn 4 600

I am LOVING these adorable new sports collections! I think they would be so much fun to not only document your child’s sports memories, but how cute are they for creating treat boxes for team mates or to thank that special coach?!

I love the felt pennants adhered to wooden skewers adorning the top of this project!

Add a quick and easy tag to the top of your treat by simply layering a few Ephemera die cuts together, punching a hole in the top, and tying it to your package using a bit of twine.

The Ephemera die cuts look so cute layered together to decorate the front of the box. I added puffy stars stickers (Bell Pepper Mix) to the centers of the star die cuts for a bit more interest. I also added twine, and used different levels of foam squares for each piece. I love the way it looks!

Do you have a sports lover in your life that would love a gift like this? Tuck in a jersey, some baseball cards, or even a ticket to their favorite teams’ game!

See you again soon!
