About Me

Sarahfleming1 Hello! My name is Sarah Fleming, and I'm a paper addict living in central Texas. I'm an independent demonstrator for Stampin' Up! and love to teach others how to make lovely paper projects. I always have ink-stained fingers (I'm okay with that). I also knit. If you're in the USA, I'd love to be your demonstrator!

Hi, and welcome to the Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop! This is a monthly hop with Stampin’ Up! friends around the world; you’re currently visiting Sarah Fleming in the USA. This month’s theme is Something Different. A fun or fancy fold, or something besides a card. I went waaaaay out of my comfort zone and finally tackled an idea that’s been floating around in my head for months.

Stampin' Up! Coffee Cafe bundle with Cool Treats, Cupcake Cutout thinlits, Coffee Cups framelits - treat packaging - teachers gifts - Ice Cubes gum packaging - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

 

I bought this container of Ice Cubes in May. May! I’d seen the ice cubes in the Coffee Cafe stamp set, so when I saw Ice Cubes at the grocery store, I grabbed them, planning to do some kind of fancy packaging for them. It’s been sitting in a basket on my desk for months. Long enough that the container is now empty. I have no idea how that happened. >.>

So here’s what I came up with. I cut a strip of 2″ x 12″ (actually, just a hair under 2″ wide) Whisper White cardstock and punched both ends with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. I stamped the long wrapper with a stamp from Touches of Texture, in both Berry Burst and Daffodil Delight. I scored the middle two inches of the strip (I’m sorry, I didn’t get a measurement) to have a defined bottom for the treat wrapper. I attached the Ice Cubes container to the wrapper with Glue Dots, but if you’re going to actually give this to someone, you’d be better off using hot glue, or maybe lots of Tear & Tape. Super helpful, I know. Then I tied the ends together with the Berry Burst 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon. I added a strip of Silver Mini Sequin Trim to the bow before tightening the loops.

The cups on the front use the Coffee Cafe stamps and dies. The frozen lemonade on the left is made with Daffodil Delight cardstock (behind) and Vellum Cardstock on top. The “you’re” comes from a stamp in the Cool Treats stamp set (“you’re the cherry to my sundae” — I stamped it, then cut out the word I wanted), and the “sweet” is die cut using the Cupcake Cutouts framelits. I finished off the front with some Metallic Sequins.

Thanks for stopping by today! You are currently visiting Sarah Fleming in the USA. Please see the list below & hop through all of the people on the list to see all of our projects. You don’t want to miss any!

Very cute and yummy looking Sarah … I must admit when I first started reading your post, I wondered how you could buy ice cubes in a container and keep them on your desk! :) xxx

This is fun & bright Sarah. You sort of lost me with the buying of ice cubes (don’t you have a freezer?) but I think I may have worked it out haha. Love your blog’s name too. TFS
