Heartwarming Hugs


The Little Treat Box is cute inside and out, because of the beautiful pattern on both sides of the paper. I used a 6″ X 7″ piece of DSP, because I wanted the checks to be straight, but the die fits at an angle on 6″ X 6″ paper.

The great thing about this Little Treat Box Die is that it does all the cutting and scoring for you, making it a cinch to put together. After rolling through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, just fold on the score lines, insert the two tabs, tie a bow at the top, and you’re done.


I tied the Little Treat Box at the top with Red Braided Linen Trim, which happens to be my October gift (details below).

If you want it to stay together after opening, just add a few tiny dots of glue on the tabs and sides.

I’m just imagining all the uses: place settings, ornaments, gift holders for chocolate, coins, or even better, rolled up paper money.


It’s fun to pair the Little Treat Box with a card to match. I used the Pine Tree Punch to cut three trees from three different patterns of Heartwarming Hugs Designer Paper, backed them with cardstock for thickness, and placed them on Dimensionals.

The curved snowbank was created with a new Curvy Die, which cut Whisper White Cardstock (5 1/4″ X 4″) in two pieces. I’m just giving you a “sneak peek,” because this die won’t be available for customers until November 3rd. However, if you’d like to join my Dream Makers Team, you can put the Curvy Bundle in your Starter Kit!

I embossed the top half with the Winter Snow Embossing Folder, and glued the two pieces to a Mossy Meadow card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

“Ho Ho Ho, Merry Christmas” is from the Little Treats Stamp Set, stamped in Real Red Ink, and cut with a Little Treat Box Die. Aren’t the scalloped sides cute?


The papers look so pretty together, I decorated the envelope with an additional pattern. After gluing a section of Designer Paper (5 3/4″ X 2 1/4″) to the flap, I used the flap as a guide for my scissors.
