August SOTM – For the Love of Crafting

0 16 Comments

Welcome to the August Stamp of the month Blog hop! This month we have almost 30 consultants sharing ideas with you about how to use this fantastic stamp set! It is suuuuper fun! Today you should have arrived here from Debi’s blog, but if not, that’s ok, it’s a big circle, and you will get back around to her!

Take a look at all the fun stamps in this set!

While I was trying to decide what to make for this fun blog hop, I looked over and saw the package of mini chips ahoy cookies, and I thought that would be perfect match with the “Enjoy the small stuff” stamp in the set.

If you don’t know already, I am enamored by Sam of Pootles Papercraft. She has TONS of videos on how to make fantastic little boxes for all sorts of things. So, that was the first place that I went to to try to find a little box for these cookies! I found one, and decided to make it a bit smaller (you know, to go with the whole “small stuff” theme!)

So, it’s this cute little triangle box, with a Central Park paper wrapper. One side tucks in, and the other folds over.

I don’t have access to all of my tools and stamps, as I am staying at the hospital with my youngest. That means I work with what I have. Sam uses a small punch to put a finger hold in the part of the box that tucks in. I don’t have that with me, so I decided to add a little bit of ribbon with the mini stapler, to be able to pull the box open.

Since I do have a super small stash of things with me, I do only have the black archival ink with me, but wanted a bit of color around the sentiment. So, I ‘cheated’! I stamped the image once in the archival black, then stamped again with 2nd generation on my white daisy cardstock. I cut out both images with my micro tip scissors. The first generation I cut just inside the solid black line, and on the 2nd generation I cut on the outside of the black line. Then I flipped the larger piece over and colored with the Turquoise Blue Shinhan marker. I popped the two pieces up on some foam tape, and then used a bit of the same ribbon behind to help the colors pop some more!

I hope you like my little treat box! They would be perfect for party treats, teacher appreciation, co-worker gifts, gifts for nurses, and so many other things!

I hope you leave a comment and let me know what you think of it! Then, hop on over to Tracey’s blog to see what fun stuff she has for you!

Thanks again for stopping by! Make sure to stop by tomorrow to see more fun goodies with this stamp set!
