Hershey’s Little Treats Jar

I love to make little treat holders! One of my favorite things to do during this pandemic has been to leave little gifts and treats in my friends (and neighbors) mailboxes. I used the Jar Punch to create these cute little treats that hold 3 Hershey’s Miniatures.

Stampin' Up! Little Treats with Harvest Hellos and the Jar Punch - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used the pumpkin pie woodgrain pattern from the Regals 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper to stamp the jack-o-lantern face from Harvest Hellos and punch it out with the Jar Punch. I punched 2 more jars from Pumpkin Pie cardstock and adhered the DSP piece to one. I stamped the jar lid from Jar of Flowers on a strip of Smoky Slate and punched them out with the Jar Punch. I trimmed the lids and adhered to the jars. On the second jar I stamped the sentiment and spider from the Little Treats stamp set to go on the back of the treat holder.

Stampin' Up! Little Treats Jar idea with Harvest Hellos and the Jar Punch - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

To make the treat holder start with a 4 1/4 x 2 3/4 piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock. On the 4 3/4 side, score at 1″, 2″, 3″, and 4″. On the 2 3/4 side, score at 1 3/4. Fold along the score lines and cut along the score lines as shown below.

Little Treat holder for 3 Hershey Miniatures - visit juststampin.com for measurements and directions - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Add Tear & Tape or Multipurpose Liquid Glue along the skinny end and fold over to create the box. Fold in the bottom flaps and adhere with Liquid Glue. Adhere the punched jars to the front and back of the box. Tie a piece of twine around the jar lid on the front. Add a rhinestone jewel to the spider on the back. Fill with 3 Hershey Miniatures.

Stampin' Up! Treat Holder idea with Little Treats, Harvest Hellos, Jar of Flowers, and Jar Punch - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I haven’t been in a grocery store, restaurant, or shop since the middle of March! I have to say I miss browsing for cute little gifts and treats! We order everything online and have it delivered or curbside pick up. I am going to try to order the seasonal Hershey Miniatures to go in my jar holders. The grocery store substituted these. They all taste the same but I like the color coordination with the festive seasonal wrappers. 🙂

A Card Sketch for Feels Like Frost

Today I’m sharing two cards that showcase the beautiful Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper. You can keep it simple or step it up with additional layers, ribbon, and/or embellishments.
Stampin' Up! Feels Like Frost Clean & Simple card ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
The Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper is a returning favorite! This high-quality double-sided paper features stunning photographic images of snow and ice on one side, and whimsical hand-drawn designs with silver foil on the other.

Stampin' Up! Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper - for inspiration amd ordering information visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
Coordinating colors: Balmy Blue, Blushing Bride, Highland Heather, Night of Navy, Pretty Peacock, Purple Posy, Rococo Rose, Seaside Spray, Smoky Slate, Whisper White

The inspiration for today’s cards came from a card sketch from TGIF Challenges. Card sketches are a great starting point if you’re looking for some creative inspiration. Here’s a look at the sketch.
I love this clean & simple design! Here’s a look at each card.Stampin' Up! Feels Like Frost and Peaceful Moments Clean & Simple Sympathy card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUpStampin' Up!

Feels Like Frost Clean & Simple Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
You can make your strips and layers any size you want. Here’s my measurements:

  • Card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
  • Cardstock/Foil Layer: 3 3/4 x 4 7/8, 7/8 x 4 3/8 (envelope), 7/8 x 5 (inside)
  • DSP: Cut 2 strips 1 3/4 x 4 3/4, cut one of those strips in 2 pieces measuring 1 3/4 x 2 3/4, 1 3/4 x 1 15/16 (just under 2 inches), 3/4 x 4 1/4 (envelope), 3/4 x 4 7/8 (inside card)
  • Whisper White: 3 3/4 x 5 (inside), scrap to stamp and die cut sentiment

This simple sketch is great for showcasing coordinating DSP! You could mix and match different patterns, stamp in one space, add a sentiment in another, the possibilities are endless! I hope this inspires you to get creative and have some fun! Here’s another card design I shared previously that works well with the Feels Like Frost DSP. *Click on the image to view the original post.
