Monday again, y’all! Whoo-hoo?
But – I had a good weekend and I hope that y’all did, too!
If you were able to join me last night for my FB live video, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me! If not, but would like to see how I made these Spring-y little treat boxes, here’s the YouTube version!
I admit, I blatantly CASEd the heck out of this from Sam Hammond (aka Pootles) – she did a great video! You can see her version right here!
For mine, I used the gorgeous Delightful Daisy DSP from our Annual Catalog, and paired it with a sweet little sentiment from the A Good Day stamp set, which is in the Occasions catalog!
These are uber-easy to make – and the only tools required are your Simply Scored and a couple of punches! As you can see in the video, you just make four score lines. Start by placing the “top” of your paper (if you are using paper that has an “up” and a “down”) at the top of the Simply Scored).
Turn it a quarter turn to the right and do the next two score lines.
Snip according to the video, and it’s ready to put together!
I used the A Good Day stamp set to make the sentiments. I stamped the sentiment in Tranquil Tide or Night of Navy on Whisper White and punched them with the new 1 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch. I colored in the little tear-drop shapes with my Stampin’ Write Markers, then I popped them onto 1 1/2″ Circle punch mats in either Daffodil Delight or Old Olive with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I adhered the matted sentiments to the front of each little box and punched 1/2″ holes in both sides for the ribbon. I used Peekaboo Peach and Night of Navy 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon, threading it thru the holes – you can see how on the video! – and tying it in a big bow.
To finish off, I added a Calypso Coral or Daffodil Delight heart Enamel Shape.
I made a whole slew of them in a couple hours – and (before doing up the ribbon) stuck in a little Sweet Soiree Ready Shreddie and probably-too-many pieces of Easter candy. They were for the ladies at our team meeting!
Et Voila! Super cute – super easy. And they just need 6″ x 6″ of DSP! If you’re having Easter dinner or another “event” – these would make really pretty favors – or place “cards”! No one has to know how easy they are! Hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix
Well – the Finn-ster and I had a great time yesterday at our team meeting! I think I’ll just tell this one mostly in pictures…
While we held our business meeting and ate our lunch…
…Finn made the rounds. He surprised a few ladies by popping up rather…unexpectedly…
When we got busy making a couple of crafts – one of which I do believe I’ll share with you next Sunday… Finn (recognizing card-making just like at home) assumed the position.
Finally, though, the effort of making all those ladies happy and letting them all pet him and politely requesting bites of whatever they were eating – just took it’s toll.
Being the semi-un-official Krew mascot (for both the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew AND Critters-N-Creatin Krew!) is hard work, y’all!! 🙂
