"You are a Keeper" Candy Treat Box - 3D Wednesday with My Creative Time

Good Morning!
It is another 3D Wednesday over at My Creative Time.  Today I made an adorable treat box that contains my favorite candy, swedish fish!  I can remember going to the department store when I was a kid and getting a 1/4 pound in a white paper bag and loving every single ounce!
This cool box is made with just ONE uncut 8.5" x 11" piece of cardstock.  I only had to score and fold.   You can see the tutorial here.
 I do believe that this is one of my all time favorite projects I have done.  You only need to use one piece of card stock and they can be decorated for ANYTHING!!!  Add as much or as little embellishment as you like.  Emma's Mini Frame and Arrow dies work so perfectly here.  I don't know if I will be able to give this one away, hehehe!

 I kept the back simple adding just some of the matching patterned papers.

This is a view of the opened box.  You could also use velcro or clips to keep the top closed instead of the eyelets and twine.
List of Supplies:
My Favorite Sayings stamp set, Stitched Mini Frame die and Capture Frame Arrow die  -  My Creative Time
Snorkel: School's Out patterned paper  -  Cosmo Cricket
Chartreuse Card Stock  -  Papertrey Ink
Salty Ocean Distress Ink
Mandarin Twine  -  The Twinery
Eyelets  -  We R Memory Keepers
Fish Brad  -  The Eyelet Outlet
Swedish Fish Candy
Well that's it for me today.  I enjoyed making this project and I hope you enjoyed it too!  Have a wonderful day my friends!

Paper Clip/Push Pin Holders - 3D Wednesday

Good Morning!  Today for My Creative Time's 3d Wednesday I have some Paper Clip/Push Pin Holders I made out of recycled electrical tape holders.  My husband had a lot of these laying around and he asked me if I could use them.  Ummm, YES!  I put some paper clips, binder clips and push pins inside and tada -  cute little gifts!
I used the Stitched Mini Frame die to make the "Chalk Board".  The scissors are from "Chunky Jar Accessories" and the glasses are from "What's Growning On" stamp and die set.  The sentiment is from "My Teacher Rocks".

I simply covered the tops with patterned paper, added some embellishments, tied a ribbon and there you have it, a thoughtful little gift.
The next set I made also used Emma's Stitched Mini Frame die along with the arrow from the "Capture Frame die" set.  The sentiment is from "It's All About You" and the arrow stamp is from "You Are Here".  The paper is from The Carnival Stack by Die Cuts With a View.
The last version I made uses the "Rolled Flower Dies" and "Floral Sentiments" stamp set.  The paper is a pad from gcd studios called Funhouse.

  Additional Supplies I Used:
Makin-the-Grade Cricut Cartridge for apple cut at 3"
The Grade School 8x8 paper pad  -  DCWV
Fragments Charm and jump ring  -  Tim Holtz
Yellow Hemp  -  Liz's Paper Loft Boutique
White Hemp - Crafter's Square
Fired Brick, Peeled Paint, Picked Raspberry,
Scattered Straw and Worn Lipstick Distress Inks
Leaves - Modern Romance
Ribbon - Nashville Wraps
Bazzill Buttons
Star Dust Stickles
