M is for Mini Curvy Keepsake Box Dies

Welcome to my ABC Holiday 2019 Series! Throughout this series I will be sharing all kinds of cards, gifts, and ideas to help make your holidays as easy as ABC! Today I’m showcasing the Mini Curvy Keepsake Box. I loved it’s Mama (Curvy Keepsakes Die) from several years ago and just about anything mama could do, so can this little cutie! Here’s a look at the first project I made.

Stampin' Up!Harvest Hellos Bundle and Mini Curvy Keepsake Box Dies apple treat holder idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUpStampin' Up!Harvest Hellos Bundle and Mini Curvy Keepsake Box Dies apple treat holder idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I made over 50 of these apples…for the teachers for back to school, the hairdressers at the shop where I sell my cards, friends, etc.  They are so quick & easy to make! You had to cut two for the old “Mama” die and then you had to glue and assemble but this little one doesn’t require any adhesive at all and you can get two of these boxes per sheet of paper.  I filled the apples with 5 caramels each which still makes a nice little treat to give.  There are so many other things you can fill them with too! Here’s some others I made for Fall/Thanksgiving.

I used the Tiny Keepsakes Stamp Set to make the checked pattern on my boxes. You can purchase the Tiny Keepsakes Stamp Set and the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies as a bundle and SAVE 10%.  I debated getting the bundle and thought I would just buy the dies but I am so glad I went ahead and purchased the bundle!  The Tiny Keepsakes Stamp Set has two miniature background stamps with adorable greetings. You can make your cards and projects so creative making your own “Designer Series Paper” using the checked or stripes! Take a look at all you get with the Tiny Keepsakes Bundle.

Here’s a quick video to see how easy it is to put this treat holder together!

I like to use my bone folder to curl each side of the paper before I put it together.  It gives it a more rounded look.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Leaves and Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies Fall or Thanksgiving treat holder idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I filled these with M&M’s and a special little note. For years I’ve mixed up my special “Blessings Mix” and always had that in whatever table favors I made that year. This year, I’m changing it up and going with some M&M’s and a Thanksgiving Gratitude Game to get some fun family conversation going (I hope).

On a personal note…I am one happy mama today as my daughter flew in late last night and is home for a few days. We are planning to hit the craft shows this weekend, perhaps take a hike to the waterfalls, and enjoy the gorgeous Fall weather.  And, since she can’t come home for Thanksgiving this year, we are planning to celebrate the holiday this weekend with a big turkey and all the trimmings. I grew up in Massachusetts and went on many field trips to Plymouth Plantation.  We were told the first Thanksgiving was actually celebrated in October. It was good ole President George Washington who decided to proclaim a national Thanksgiving holiday in November. For me, any day I have my kids home is a day of Thanksgiving!!!!

Have a wonderful weekend!
