Stampin’ Up! – Book To Look Treats

Who wouldn’t want to choose one of these cute little treat boxes from this adorable basket/box decorated with Stampin’ Up! Polka Dot DSP and rubber stamps!  The treat boxes are filled with candies and prizes!  Guests at my workshops may choose a treat box when they book a party or class with me.    Not only does each treat box hold a couple of chocolate candies, there’s also a slip of paper in each box with a prize of Stampin’ Up! product….  It’s all about the fun!

April 2014 Book To Look

The box was made using a paper mache box that I found in the Dollar Spot at Target.  I simply covered it with one of my favorite Polka Dot DSP prints and decorated the front.  The small treat boxes are made using a piece of Designer Series Paper 4″ x 6″, scored and punched using the Envelope Punch Board.   (Tutorial to follow)



Stampin’ Up! DSP Sampler Pack

I wanted to send a special thank-you gift to my downline members.  So I created this Designer Series Paper Sampler from all the Papers in the Spring 2014 Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration Brochure.   And made it into a tablet with a cute cover.  I loved how they turned out!  I hope you like them too.

Cut the DSP to your desired size.  The size shown here is 4″x6″.  This way we were able to get 12 per package.  I used a stiff piece of cardboard (the cardboard that comes in our DSP packs works great!) as the backing.  Use 2 binder clips to hold your stack together.  It’s very important that the top lines up straight.  Using Rubber Cement, brush a good amount of glue along the top edge.  Let these dry for a few minutes before removing the binder clips.

For easy reference I added a list of the DSP papers and the coordinating colors to the inside of the tablet.

I created my covers and added embellishments and once the rubber cement is dry they can be attached to the tablet.  I did this with just a bit of sticky strip across the back.

It’s very cool to make your own tablet and just pull the individual sheets out as you need them.

I was very happy with the finished product — from the responses that I’ve received from my downline members, they were too.
