2 Winners and a Make 'n Take

Happy Monday to all!!! We'll get a good start to this new week by announcing the 2 winners of our giveaway. The first one is Sweet Craf-tea Chick (isn't that a cute name?) and the second is our international winner (all the way from Belgium), Saskia!!! Ladies, please send me an email (dandelion.designs@hawaiiantel.net) with your addresses and I'll get these stamps out to you!!!

Over the weekend I did at make 'n take at Cute Stuff...here's the project we did:


It's a little slide box with a shaker top. To get a pattern for this box, please click here. Cut along the solid lines and fold along the dotted lines. (I used a blue Marvy oval punch to make the cut out.)


Using double stick tape, adhere a 2" x 2-1/2" piece of acetate to the back of the oval window (as shown above, left)...then, cut thin strips of double stick foam tape and place over acetate piece (right, above). Next, stamp a sentiment on a contrasting paper and punch out with a Marvy (blue) oval punch. Position and glue as shown (below, left). Make sure your sentiment is centered in the window when you fold it up as shown below, right.



Now you can remove the backing paper from the foam tape...sprinkle some confetti/glitter right over the sentiment (keeping the edges free of confetti)...carefully fold and position frame right over sentiment...press down on the foam tape to adhere. Then you just have to decorate your box top...I used a Marvy (blue) oval punch and a (pink) scalloped oval punch to form the frame.



To make the drawer portion of the box, simply apply double stick tape on each of the 4 tabs and fold box together along dotted lines.


I used a 1/8" hole punch to make a hole on one of the sides. Cut a 6" piece of ribbon, fold in half and tie a knot as shown below:


Thread the loop end of the ribbon through the punched hole (from the inside out):


Here are more samples using Ping & Pong:



Here's our giveaway for today...



Should come in handy for all of you who like to make and give yummy snacks for the holidays!! Leave me a post by midnight (Hawaii time) on Wednesday, October 21...tell me what food goodies you're planning to make/give this holiday season that would make our mouths water!!! I'll announce the winner on Thursday, October 22!!!

One more card I'd like to share...this cutie is from Brenda:


Thanks, Brenda!!! Can't believe Halloween is coming up so soon...I'd better get busy on some Halloween ideas before it's too late!!!

At christmas time, I like to make cinnamon spiced pecans and put them in decorative jars for friends and family. My mother and I also make peanut butter fudge, divinity, pecan brittle, and chocolate fudge and make little treat containers also as gifts to our family and friends. It is a traditional thing that she and I have done for several years.
Thanks for the template for the slider box and the new stamps are so cute, I would love to win them!

Hi Jean,
Gosh your clever treat boxes are perfect for wrapped candies. For the holidays I usually make cookies. Vanilla Crescents are the ones that most people request. I also make a quick, foolproof fudge and a spicy candied popcorn that everyone seems to enjoy. Thanks for sharing your fabulous creations and templates.

Hi Jean...Over the holidays, I tend to make the good ol' party mix or peanut butter party mix with animal cookies in it. There are times when I mix in M&M's inside to make the mix colorful.

Thanks for the tutorial. I'm gonna try and make some.

I enjoy making chocolate no bake cookies, they are made with peanut butter, oats, other ingredients, but the best of all is chocolate. I place them in celephane bags and then add a decorative top. My friends love to receive them but,I love giving them to all of them.
Thanks for the opportunity to win these great stamps.

I just love the little turtle with the cookies on his back! I guess I will probably make "snowball" cookies this year (especially for Lianne!). They are ono but a little messy to eat.
P.S. That slider box with shaker sure is fun. Thanks

This was such a cute idea. Glad I made it to the make 'n take. I don't like to make things, but I'd like to try those pretzels that people have been making.

I usually do a butter melting moment cookie with lots of powderd sugar, since we cannot get real snow I will go with the sweet kind.

MsT said...

Hello! I'm not a much of a baker, but I'm sure I can find something to fill those super cute slider boxes! Thanks for a chance to win them!

Lori said...

This holiday season I'll be giving away sweet Chex mix and Chinese Pretzels. Every year my family looks forward for these treats! These stamps are super cute and I love the little slider box. This could make great favors for a Christmas party!

Cori T. said...

Hi Jean,
Your slider box is so cute - perfect with your new Christmas stamps! I like to make chocolate dipped Oreo cookies and Pretzels. Super simple, and it leaves me more time to craft!

I like to make so many handmade goodies (food & craft) during the holiday season and give as gifts as I think it makes it so much more personal. For my food goodies I always wrap them up in a box with ribbon or in celephane with ribbon as I think the packaging makes it all the more exciting for people to receive.
My favourite goodies to make are Rocky Road (melted chocolate mixed with cherries, nuts, coconut and mashmellows and then let to set) or cookies with one half dipped in melted chocolate and then allowed to set and re-dip in chocolate again to make the chocolate side nice and thick! and then another fav is Melting Moments filled with passionfruit cream (if you don't have melting moments over there, they are like a shortbread biscuit put together with passionfruit cream in the middle). Yum yum. Amanda

For the holidays I like to make muddie buddies and chocolate pretzel sticks with sprinkles. The kids love this. The cute stamps will help make great tags to package them and give away too. Love the little animals and sayings!
