Creation Station: Anything But A Card

Do you like to create projects other than cards?  I know I do!  There's just something magical about making a 3D project or a home decor piece.  I love making things that make others smile.  
Today's project isn't overly difficult to create but it's super cute and I know the recipients will be happy!  Afterall- who doesn't love chocolate!

This month we are creating projects that are Anything But A Card.  It can be home decor, an ornament, a box or a bag or just about anything in between- as long as it's not a card!  Stampin' UP! makes this easy!  In the Annual Catalog I found these adorable Mini Jam Jars.  They make the cutest little treat holders!

Want to make these yourself?  Here are the BASIC instructions:
Cut a 4-3/4" square piece of card stock and score all 4 sides at 1-1/4".  Snip flaps on opposite sides and fold into a box. Secure using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
Cut a 2-1/4" x 3-1/2" piece of card stock and coordinating DSP.  Adhere together and round the corners using the Detailed Trio Punch.  Attach this piece inside the box along the inner back panel and secure using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  
Wrap a 1" x 10-1/2" strip of coordinating DSP around the box to decorate.  Decorate as you like!

The above view shows both the jar and the treat holder.  I created all 4 of mine using the gorgeous Peaceful Place DSP, Wonderful Snowflakes,  Merry Snowflakes Stamp Set,  Stitched Snowflake Dies, Opal Rounds, White Glittered Organdy Ribbon, and Smoky Slate/Basic White Card Stock.  

I sure do hope the flight attendants on our trip to Florida will enjoy their treats!  I haven't filled the jars yet- but they will have Lindor Truffles in them!  

Wanna see some more fun 3D projects?  Why not follow along on our hop!  Next up is the fabulous Sara Nell Langland.  



  1. I like the holder for the jam jar, that's a great idea.

  2. What a great idea for upscaling these jam jars and fast and easy. Love the Peaceful Place paper--think it's my favorite this year. Hmmmm-maybe I'll have to case these for my Christmas table this year!

  3. You are so right! Those are the cutest little treat holders. Bonus that they're easy.

  4. Such a sweet little gift and a great project! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Very cute little jars, Dani. I love your choice of DSP, and a lovely way to share the Christmas spirit. D x
