Onstage Swaps November 2018 – Mini Exploding Boxes

Last weekend was Onstage Local where we celebrated Stampin’ Up’s 30th Anniversary. I was able to meet with lots of other demonstrators, got sneak peaks of future product releases and of course, took part in the time honored tradition of swapping!

I had so much fun putting these mini exploding boxes together as my swaps, and whilst the concept is nothing new, I never get tired of the element of surprise they bring!

My mini treat boxes are designed to hold one Ferraro rocher.

Such a fabulous onstage event, I’m already excited about the next one! Thanks for stopping by today 😘

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

Treat Time at the Team Retreat

I’ve just returned from a fantastic weekend retreat with my Stampin’ Up! team mates and Upline.

It’s always good fun to get together, and it was doubly fun as I recently promoted to a Silver Demo and was able to enjoy a special celebration dinner on the first evening.

I decided to use the Treat Time Bundle for my team swaps. I love all of Stampin’ Up’s 3D project dies, and the fact you can put together multiple treat holders quickly and easily, and without having to worry about measurements etc.

I created almost 50 of these gorgeous treat holders using a mix of the Frosted Floral Speciality DSP, the Petal Promenade DSP and the Tropical Escape DSP.

So easy to put together and they look fab with bakers twine. How cute are the heart toppers?!

I filled my treat tubes (AKA sour cream containers) with little packs of sweeties 😋 but individually wrapped chocolates would also work well xx
