I remember when cream used to come in this shaped container…do you? (or is that really dating me…LOL)Here’s how to turn this shaped container into a rockin’ treat container, perfect for all occasions, boy birthday (shown above made using the “Little Boys” stamp set from Tin Box Creation), girl birthday, baby shower….you name it! Just change the paper and stamping to match your theme!

This is not my original idea and I have seen these made from just heavy weight papers but I have expanded the idea and included the TP roll and an opening to remove the treats…for this one you will need a toilet paper roll (these are the perfect, stamps, ink, an exacto knife, detail scissors, strong adhesive, med. and small circle punch and a piece of paper approx. 4×6.5 inches plus some scraps.

1-Stamp design on your paper.
2-Cover roll with paper.
3-Apply adhesive strip along inside edge of one end, pinch vertically to seal. Fill with small treat candy’s.
4-Do same on other end, pinch horizontally to seal…voila’…a triangle shape!
4-If not using a toilet paper roll and just rolling a tube out of pp, you can crimp the ends slighly using a paper crimper, the toilet roll was too thick for my crimper. You can take a ruler and stylus and make crimping marks easy enough though if you wish!
5-Next take a craft knife and cut a small opening for treats to be removed from. Keep the opening smaller than the circle die cut you will be using to cover it!!
Punch a circle out of matching paper, stamp and embellish it and attach a smaller circle underneath the larger circle to use as a pulltab. Run adhesive around the edge only of the larger circle and attach over cut out hole.

I think I will be doing a bunch of these in a girlie theme for my daughters 10th birthday! )


I have been having a blast playing with Scrapbooking Fanatics July kit, it features Cloud9, Heidi Grace, Stix2 PVA glue and foil!!!!! The Stix2 glue is amazing stuff!

I have also been playing with my “last” set of DT stamps from Tin Box Creations. The Tin Box DT term is coming to an end and I decided it was time for a change….I will miss working with Karen and Dianne and their wonderful stamps but like they say, a change is as good as a rest! 🙂

This first image is a gussied up clay pot made using Tin Box Creations “Family” stamp set….what a fun set to play with!! 🙂

These next two items were made with ScrapFans July kit (I have a dbl. page layout coming shortly as well):

This next layout used JBS paper and Tin Box Creations “Impact Upper” stamp set…our new little Peanut…lol.

I used the fun little “Family” stamp set from Tin Box Creations to create this adorable laundry room sign. I stamped on the oversized clothes peg and also on the computer generated/printed sign.

I snagged a few of these unused coffee bags from the grocery store (shhhhh…lol) the other day and altered this one, they are great for baked gifts because they have a plasticy lining in them and nothing will soak through. I used misc. papers, a Fiskars punch (Threading Water), Scallop scissors, some crackle paint from Ranger and the “Says It All” stamp set to create this particular bag. The beads hanging from the wire are by Maya Road. These would make great treat bags for kids parties too, just change up the theme and colors!!

I used to love this game as a kid, still do, even my kids love playing this game. Utilizing some fabulous ribbon from, an unadorned tin and a stamp set (Christmas Script) from Tin Box Creations I put together this adorable travel board game for my girls! The buttons have small Basic Grey magnets on the backs to keep them on the board. always helpful in a vehicle!

….I hope you all have at least one of those friends that “got yer back” if you know what I mean…a friend who is there for you no matter what…who gives and receives hugs as needed….and when your having the shittiest of days they just know how to make you crack up….lol….if you have one of these kinds of friends count your blessing and hold them tight….they are a “gift”!!!!! 🙂

This is a gift I made for my closest friend….I gave it to her today in a black shadow box frame…. 🙂 (click image to view larger).
The papers, die cuts and tags etc. are by MME…. the paper kit including all these items can be found here, the title was made using AC Thickers and the quote was made using a teeny tiny alphabet from the Tin Box Creations “Block This!” stamp set…
the flower was one I had made previously from fabric etc. but to make it match I sprayed it with Glimmer Mist (Candy Apple Red, Burnt Red and Coffee Shop)… that stuff!



For this layout I pulled out some old Cactus Pink pp as well as my OLD Fiskars templates (for the border and shapes). Stamps used are Everyday alpha and Impact Numbers by Tin Box Creations.
