The August-December 2020 Mini Catalog is filled with so many brand new products! One of the first products to catch my eye was the Little Treat Box Dies. It makes a treat box that’s SO easy to make and no adhesive is needed!
The largest die in the set is what you’ll use to make the treat box and the die will fit onto a piece of 6″x 6″ piece of paper (see the photo below for placement). The die set also includes several tags and embellishments. It pairs beautifully with the Little Treats stamp set (I didn’t use this stamp set on today’s project) and is available as a bundle (I have a picture of the bundle farther down in the post).
As I mentioned, the box is so easy to make and no adhesive is necessary. When you run the die through your die-cutting machine, it creates score lines as well as two slits and tabs which makes it a breeze to put together. If you need to make a lot of treat holders, you’ll be able to do it easily with the Little Treat Box Dies!
To give you an idea as to the size of the treat box, I have two Hershey’s Nuggets inside. I’m sure you’ll be able to come up with lots of other ideas to tuck inside.
The sentiment, from the stamp set, Banner Year, was stamped onto Very Vanilla cardstock using Versamark ink and then was embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. It was cut out using one of the tag dies in the Little Treat Box Dies.
There are so many possibilities with this set of dies!
I’ve had a chance to look around the beautiful new Stampin’ Up! website and become familiar with it. When you’re shopping with me, you’ll either see my name in the top left corner. Or, if you see three horizontal lines in the top left corner, click them and you’ll see “Shopping with Tracy Bradley” down towards the bottom of the column.

It’s time for the Glitter Queens Blog Hop and this month we’re sharing treat holders!
My treat holder fits a pack of gum, perfectly! This is a project I’ve shared before but when you use brand new paper (I used Monster Bash Designer Series Paper), it becomes new again! Three months ago I joined Weight Watchers so I knew my treat holder couldn’t have chocolate in it (I LOVE chocolate) so I opted for a delicious pack of gum!
This little treat holder couldn’t be easier to make! You’ll need to do a little scoring and a little cutting and that’s it. It comes together really quickly! I don’t have a new video today creating my project using Monster Bash Designer Series Paper but I do have a video I made last year that will demonstrate how to make the holder and all the measurements (please note: the Designer Series Paper and stamp set used in the video are no longer available). You can find the video farther down in this post.
I used Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie cardstock to create the holder. A strong adhesive is needed to assemble the box so I used Tear & Tape. There’s a little flap on the front of the box that is held closed with Glittered Organdy Ribbon. The sentiment sits on Silver Glimmer Paper and both were cut out using our Layering Circle Dies. Sometimes it can be tricky getting things to stick to glimmer paper so I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue. To attach the glimmer paper and sentiment to the box, I added more liquid glue to the upper half of the circle. Our Every Season Punch Pack has a cute little bat that I cut out using Basic Black cardstock and adhered with a glue dot (you could use the glue again but the dot fits perfectly). I used Snail adhesive to attach the Monster Mash Designer Series Paper to the holder but again, you could use liquid glue.
This is the gum I used!
Leave a comment today to be entered to win my blog candy! I’ll send one person all the paper and embellishments needed to create today’s project (you’ll need to supply your own stamp set, ink and adhesive). I’m sorry but I can only send to a U.S.A. address but all comments are welcome! The winner will be announced on Monday right here on my blog.
