Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop - Love & Friends

Welcome to the FEBRUARY 2022 Edition of the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop! You'll see projects in our hop from Stampin' Up! demonstrators around the world--I'm in Colorado Springs, Colorado. (Note: I can only sell to customers in the US, so prices are in USD)

We generally hop the first Friday of each month, and our theme for today is LOVE & FRIENDS! I'm once again featuring products from the Sweet Talk Suite...though I really only used the Sweet Conversations Bundle this time. {you'll find all Product Purchase Links below the Blog Roll near the bottom of the post}

My project is a little treat holder made from the small envelope shape, and the banner shape, in the Sweet Hearts Dies. You can get the dies, along with the Sweet Conversations Stamp Set, for 10% OFF in the Sweet Conversations BUNDLE. I will try to do a video to show you the assembly for this treat holder, but it's pretty simple so you might be able to figure it out from the pictures if I can give you a few tips.

 You'll want to cut out 3 of the envelope die shape from Balmy Blue Cardstock, and trim two opposite ends of the rounded flaps off of one of the envelope shapes. Then you will adhere them together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue, so that the center of the trimmed envelope piece is creating the bottom square of the box. Then cut 2 pieces of Balmy Blue Cardstock that are a scant 1-3/16" square, and glue these to the left and right sides to complete your box.

 Next, cut out 1 banner die shape from Flirty Flamingo Cardstock. Cut the flat (not pointed) end of the banner off at 1", then adhere the pointed part of the banner to the front of the treat holder with the points lined up all the way down at the bottom front, and adhere the flat rectangle you trimmed away from the banner piece, to the round back of the treat holder.

Stamp the largest shaded heart image with the Flirty Flamingo Ink Pad, onto Basic White Cardstock, then cut it out with the corresponding die, and adhere it to the front rounded flap of the box using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. Pierce a hole through the top of the heart, and the end of the banner piece you adhered to the back rounded flap, and then tie the front and back together with about 8" of Linen Thread. I have been able to fit a Lindt Truffle and a Ferraro Rocher candy in this little treat holder. I'm sure you can find plenty of other goodies that would fit.

Stampin' Supplies: Sweet Conversations BUNDLE (stamp set + Sweet Heart Dies), Basic White Cardstock, Balmy Blue Cardstock, Flirty Flamingo Cardstock & Ink Pad, Linen Thread, Take Your Pick Tool & Stampin' Pierce Mat (or a 1/16" hole punch), Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Mini Stampin' Dimensionals, Simply Shammy (to clean photopolymer stamps), Bone Folder, Paper Snips, Grid Paper, Paper Trimmer, Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. {see Product Purchase Links near the bottom of the post}
