Yesterday I shared these little treats and today I want to show you how easy they are to make! You’ll need a 4 x 4 sheet of Designer Series Paper and the Envelope Punch Board.
Step 1: Just as the first photo shows, line up the edge of your paper with the 2″ line.
Step 2: Score, beginning where I show in the photo. There’s a groove in the Envelope Punch Board, so you’ll just continue to score down. Be sure to punch.
Step 3: See the directions below.
Step 4: Score just as you did in step 2 and punch.
Step 5: Repeat the same process on the remaining sides.
Fold on the score lines and pop your treat inside. I used a glue dot to close it shut. Decorate and you’re done!
These would look cute at your holiday table with the initial of each person sitting at the table with you. I’m not home, otherwise I would make one to show you as a sample. If you make one, I’d love to see it!
Below you’ll find the products I used to make my treat holders. Unfortunately the paper with the peppermints has sold out so I haven’t listed it.
The stamp set I used for my sentiment is on the retirement list and on sale! (Retiring stamp sets are guaranteed available until December 21, after which they will be only available while supplies last.)
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!

Happy Monday! Quick post today as I’m heading out to do some Christmas shopping. I’m an online shopping type of girl but today I’m braving the crowds. Although I must say, I’m sure all of the Christmas decorations will put a smile on my face. Which do you prefer, shopping online or getting out to the mall?
These are some treats I sent out last week to customers who shopped with me! They were so easy to make with the Envelope Punch Board. Tomorrow I’ll post a tutorial in case you want to make some yourself!
Have a wonderful day!
Last week I mentioned that I had a few birthdays coming up and that I would need some gift card holders. I made small ones but the gift cards I purchased were attached to cardboard so I had to go back to the drawing board. Here’s one I made for my sister using my Envelope Punch Board and a piece of yummy Cucumber Crush from the 2015-2017 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack.
And one for my brother-in-law using Smoky Slate from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack.
Quick Tip: I used the stamp set, Remembering Your Birthday, for the gift card holder above. In the picture below, you can see the stamp I used in the lower right hand corner. I only wanted Happy Birthday, not “friends and fun and presents too” so I just inked up Happy Birthday. Usually when I do this, I have to cover the words I don’t want with a post it before I ink it, but the words are spaced far enough apart that it wasn’t necessary. More mileage out of your stamp sets!
You can see this same style gift card holder from a previous post here.
(Note: After writing and publishing this post, I took a shower – I do my BEST thinking in the shower. Anyway, it dawned on me that the gift card in the previous post that I mention above is not the same as the one in this post. I had to make adjustments for the larger size of the gift card. My paper size was 8-1/4″ x 8-1/4″ and I did my first score and punch at 3-3/8.)

Today’s project is a very quick and easy card made with the Envelope Punch Board. The pretty DSP is called English Garden and I used my favorite ribbon in the catalog – Delightful Dijon Dotted Lace Trim.
It actually isn’t necessary to use an envelope but if you want, it will fit snugly into one of our medium envelopes! When you add ribbon, it holds the card together which makes it very easy to slip a gift card inside.
If you already own an Envelope Punch Board, my directions will make sense to you. If you don’t own one but would like to see a video tutorial, please email me and I’d be happy to do it!
1. Cut your DSP to 6-7/8″ x 6-7/8″.
2. Line your paper up to the 3-1/2″ mark, punch and score.
3. Turn your paper to the next side but line up the start line with the score line you just made, punch and score.
4. Repeat step 3 with the two remaining sides.
Inside I used a piece of Crumb Cake that measures 4″ x 4″. The Whisper White piece measures 3-3/4″ x 3-3/4″.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!

The other day while at the grocery store, I saw my favorite candy bar! Why the excitement? It’s because I don’t see it very often. I used to purchase them at the only store in town that carried them and then all of a sudden they were no longer on the shelves. When I saw ten of them at the grocery store, yes, I grabbed all ten of them! Who knows if they will be restocked so I did what I needed to do and into my cart they went! Ever since I can remember, this was also my dad’s favorite so it really makes me think of him and smile.
On to my project! For the last several days I’ve been playing around with my Envelope Punch Board and thought it would be fun to make a box (did you know that this punch board isn’t just for making envelopes???) that fit the candy bar perfectly.
It took a little playing around with it, but here’s what I came up with!
Once the box was made, I did have to make a few adjustments so that the box would close. You can see the two ends that would normally be pointed but I cut off just enough so that the box would shut. I used the Stacked with Love DSP pack to make a belly band around the box. Each of the sheets in the pack are 4 1/2″ wide but I cut my down to 3 inches. After wrapping the paper around the box I tied it up with our beautiful organza ribbon. I used some sparkly silver glimmer paper to attach my sentiment to and using white Baker’s Twine, I wrapped it around the ribbon.
Nothing says you care like giving someone their favorite candy bar wrapped up in a pretty little box!
