Merci Chocolate Treat Holder using Snowfall Thinlits Dies

My family love Merci chocolates so I thought I would create some pretty treat holders as table decorations for Christmas Day.

As you know I am totally in love with the limited edition Snowfall Thinlits dies (only available to purchase until the end of November) as well as copper foil, so these treat holders make me happy!!

I also thought they could make for beautiful wedding favours and they couldn’t be easier to make.

Click play on the video below to see how I made them.

Hope you enjoy making these treat holders and thanks so much for stopping by today xx

Product List

Flurry of Wishes

Flurry of Wishes is a lovely Christmas Stamp Set – I can’t understand why it took me so long to use it! I wanted to keep this card simple and pretty. I decided on a smoky slate, sweet sugarplum and soft sky colour way. I love this smoky slate gingham ribbon – it is so elegant and yet easy to use, and the silver sequin trim makes for a fun accent. The sentiment comes from the same stamp set and I used the Everyday Label Punch to Punch it out which means you can create a batch of Christmas cards like this very quickly! I used the softly falling embossing folder to achieve the ‘snowy’ background on my card front and it works perfectly with this stamp set.

Bloomin’ Love – Wedding Anniversary Card

It was my brother in law’s wedding anniversary yesterday and he asked me to create a special card for him. I absolutely love Bloomin’ Love and the occasion called for the Bloomin’ Heart thinlets dies and of course some dazzling diamonds glimmer paper.


I took a 5″x 5″piece of crumb cake cardstock and ran it through my big shot with the softly falling embossing folder to create the pretty background pattern. I then cut my heart out using the dies and adhered it to my card with dimensionals placed behind the position of the flowers. I cut out my flowers in glimmer paper with the same dies and edged them in rich razzleberry, rose red, wisteria wonder and bermuda bay.

I adhered these to the heart with glue dots and placed pearls in the flower centres and also in the other lacey flower shapes in the heart for some added detail.  I took the banner from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set and the ‘Happy Anniversary’ stamp from Teeny Tiny Sentiments and stamped them both in versamark before heat embossing them in silver. I added Wink of Stella to the banner, cut it out and adhered this across the heart. Finally I placed my card front on a silver foil mat (5 1/4″ x 5 1/4″) for added elegance, and adhered these layers to my whisper white card base (11″ x 5 1/2″ scored and folded in half).  Happy Anniversary James & Netty 🍾🍾🍾❤️
