Candy

Birthday Monday: Gummy Bear Sweet Treats

It's Monday again...yay!  Time again for Birthday ideas!

Ever since I laid my eyes on the How Sweet It Is Suite of products, I knew I had to do something with Gummy Bears candy.   

I bought a bag of Haribo Gold-Bears and it's been sitting on my desk for about a month.   Before I eat the last of them (orange is my favorite flavor), I thought I better make a treat package.

TreatBag-PH

This adorable treat bag comes together in no time at all, especially when you're using our 3" x 6" Cellophane Bags.

How'd She DO That? Treats for You bag:

  1. Stamps: Sweetest Thing
  2. Paper:
    • Daffodil Delight (3-1/2" square scored at 1-3/4" and fold over bag, and scrap for jar die) 
    • Whisper White (scraps for labels - die & punch)
    • How Sweet it is Designer Series Paper (3-1/4" x 1-1/2")
  3. Ink: Melon Mambo, Tuxedo Black Memento
  4. Other:  Big Shot, Jar of Sweets Framelits Dies, 3" x 6" Gusseted Cellophane Bags, Sweet Pins & Tags, Classic Label Punch, 1/8" Handheld Circle Punch, Whisper White Bakers Twine, Stampin' Dimensionals (and stapler to secure "fold over" piece to bag).

TreatBag-CU

The How Sweet It Is Suite is not just for yummy treat packaging, but for sending your favorite people sweet messages too.   Who wouldn't want a treat bag filled with goodies!?

Whether for parties or just thinking of you...the How Sweet It Is Suite is a treat that you can use all year-long!  Add it to your shopping bag today!  

Enjoy~Dawn O

DOstamperSTARS Hop: Valentine Candy Packaging with Be Mine Framelits

DOstamperSTARS Valentine CandyPackaging Inspiration Hop #dostamperstars #valentinesday #packagingindeas #stampinup #diy

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to share Valentine Candy Packaging inspiration with you today!  Our hop with be live at 9am (CT) today.

Stampin' Up! Be Mine Stitched Framelits Window Box (for Dove candy) by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperstars hop -  #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #papercrafting #diy #packagingideas #valentine

I was strolling the Valentine candy aisle a few weeks ago and came across these fun Dove Love Notes Caramel & Milk Chocolate Candy. 

Come to discover, when I opened my package, I was able to spell out a couple of words like; kiss & love.  I knew right away I wanted to make some sort of window box packaging.  So, through trial and error, I came up with a cute heart shape window box using the Be Mine Stitched Framelit Dies.

How'd She DO That? tips for DIY Dove Love Notes Candy Box:

Template for Stampin' Up! Be Mine Stitched Framelits Window Box (for Dove candy) by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperstars hop -  #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #papercrafting #diy #packagingideas #valentine

  • Crumb Cake (6-1/2" x 3", score at 1/2", 3", 3-1/2" and 6".  Turn and score at 1/2") 
  • Whisper White (scrap for Classic Label Punch) 
  • Window Sheets (2-3/8" x 2-5/8")

Stampin' Up! Be Mine Stitched Framelits Window Box (for Dove candy) by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperstars hop -  #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #papercrafting #diy #packagingideas #valentine

  • Use the 2-1/8" x 2-1/4" Be Mine Stitched Heart Framelit to die cut window. 
  • Adhere window sheet with glue dot in each corner.
  • Assemble box with Tear & Tape Adhesive
  • Punch 1/8" hole on each side.
  • Thread ribbon through and tie off each end.
  • Add greeting (punched with Classic Label Punch) with Whisper White Baker's Twine.
  • Fill with Dove Love Notes candy

Dove Candy Love Notes DIY box

I forgot to tell you...I'm completely in love with the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies (you had me at "stitched"!). 

When you begin to die cut with them, you'll be surprised at all of the clever cutting options there are.  It's definitely a must-have for any papercrafter!  You'll find LOTS of uses for them.  Be sure to add it to your shopping bag today, so you can get started on your Valentine and love crafting.  

Enjoy~Dawn O

Spooky Night Suite Week: Two Halloween Treat Packaging Ideas!

Before I get started, demonstrators received an update from Stampin' Up! regarding the World Card Making Day Sale and Fast Fuse.

  • There was an unexpectedly high demand for Fast Fuse, that Stampin' Up! needed to remove it from the World Card Making Day promotion at this time.
  • However, to help make it up to you, (similar to a rain check)...they will bring back the same offer on Fast Fuse for five days within the next few months.
  • I'll let you know when the 5-day Fast Fuse sale is back.  
  • In the meantime, we apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding!

DOstamping Holiday Inspiration Week showcasing Stampin' Up! holiday products

Little known fact about me...I love to decorate packages!  I like to add handmade tags, ornaments, ribbons and doodads to made my packages look pretty.  When I saw the Green Sprigs (144627), I went giddy!!  

So, if you're anything like me, you're gonna love Stampin' Up!'s 2017 Holiday Catalog.  It's filled with lots of great holiday products for both card making and packaging!

Be Merry Tiny Treat Box

  4. Create mitten tag from 6" x 2-1/2" piece of Whisper White Cardstock.  Fold in half and die cut large mitten shape (from coming soon, Many Mittens Framelits Dies 144672), by place "cuff" edge a smidgen past the fold.  Die cut another mitten from Be Merry Designer Series Paper and adhere to front of folded tag.  Die cut "cuff with texture piece" from Garden Green cardstock.  Adhere to mitten.  Cut hole in corner of tag with 1/8" Circle Handheld punch.  Stamp "to/from" (coming soon Smitten Mittens stamp set) on inside of tag with Garden Green ink.  
  5. Insert 14" of Linen Thread through hole in tag and tie into a bow around the Mini Tinsel Trim.  
  6. Insert Green Sprig into the tag hole.

Sneak Peek: Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies (coming in August)

Are you shopping in July to get Bonus Days Coupons ($5 coupon for every $50 spent)?  Yes!!  Are you wondering what you're going to spend your $5 coupon(s) on in August (when you can redeem them)?  

Here's a sneak peek at one of two new items that will be available on August 1st...Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies (the Carols of Christmas stamp set will also be available too and in a Bundle - both a sneak peek from the upcoming Holiday Catalog).

Stampin' Up! Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies coming August 1, 2017 #dostamping

As a Minnesota gal, the Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies are a must for me as they include a deer and two tree images to choose from, as well as 8 other shapes for the holidays.  (My official "measurement" graphic will be available in August for you.)

Stampin' Up! Thailand Incentive Trip Wallet #dostamping

As many of you know...I'm currently on the trek home from the Stampin' Up! Thailand Incentive Trip.  It will take a couple of travel days and I plan to be back in my office on Wednesday.  I brought a few treats for some of my international friends, a little "sweet" from Minnesota...Nut Goodie.  Of course I needed to package them up in a special way and here's what I came up with using the Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies.

Stampin' Up! Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies Candy Slider pouch by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping

Minnesota Hello Candy Slider

  1. Score 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" piece of Garden Green cardstock at 1/2" and 4".  Fold on score lines.  Place Tear & Tape adhesive along 1/2" edge
  2. Before assembling...adhere 2" x 8" strip of Be Merry Designer Series Paper to scored piece (not over the Tear & Tape).   
  3. Refold and place another strip of Tear & Tape adhesive one of the "bottom" 4" sections (this will secure the bottom of the package).  Adhere edges together, them bottom.
  4. Cut a hole at the top of the package using 1/8" Handheld Circle Punch.  NOTE:  punch through both sides.  
  5. Wrap about 24" of 3/8" Crumb Cake Classic Weave Ribbon around candy (from top to bottom and back up) and slide into the card sleeve.  Thread "back" ribbon through back hole and "front" ribbon through front hole and tie together in a bow.
  6. To open:  pull up on the ribbon and the candy slides out...yum! 

Nut Goodie - Made in Minnesota

Stampin' Up! Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies Candy Slider pouch by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping

  • Garden Green Tree & Early Espresso deer = Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies
  • Stamp "hello" with Soft Suede ink = Thoughtful Banners stamp set
  • Stamp "Minnesota" with Soft Suede ink on 1/2" x 3-3/4" piece of Crumb Cake = Labeler Alphabet stamp set (trim banner ends and adhere with Stampin' Dimensionals)
  • Stamp "friend" with Soft Suede ink on 1-1/4" x 3/8" piece of Crumb Cake = Thoughtful Banners stamp set (punch 1/16" hole, thread Linen Thread through hole, wrap onto ribbon and tie in a bow)

I think they enjoyed them as much as I did making it!
