Here is a FUN idea for that “hard to think of what to get” friend. Let’s face it, we all really do not need anything BUT there are times that we like to make someone’s day!

I took full advantage of the game board this week and went straight across the top – ACETATE-BOX-CELEBRATE! Make sure that you pop over to the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge Site to see what the other designers came up with!







I hope that you can “get this idea” as it is a great concept and just think of all of the “products/enclosures” that you could put in this little  box of fun. First, the White Box is on CLEARANCE and how can you go wrong, (let me answer itYOU CAN’T) for $3.20 and you get 8! HIT THAT BUTTON!

This box has the the makings for someone to make (5) gift enclosures with adorable envelopes and eat some yummy chocolates while doing it…and heck – the chocolates look super cute as well!







It was super hard to get a good picture if the inside but it does fit in there perfectly. Are you wondering why I put an odd number (5) of enclosures in the box?

Let me share my method to my madness….I chose that number because I have (5) of the squares that I used to decorate the box! I used a temporary adhesive to mount them so all you would have to to is take them off….add some adhesive and PRESTO…..someone can make a sweet enclosure in a jif!

I also added the banners of Trick or Treat as well as some dimensionals….. so all Suzanne has to do is trim the ends and she is good to go! This really is a DIY gift of fun!







To me, this is the best Halloween Stamp we have in this catalog. Not only is it a super stamp set….but the BUNDLE part is a punch… that makes ALL OF US happy!

There is a little something for everyone but the real star is….THE CAT PUNCH! I knew that this cat would be flying off the shelf and yep….you need to purchase this as a bundle….a win-win all the way around! Punches make life so fast and easy.

I did not use the cat punch on my enclosures today but you can see that I did punch a bunch out…..tied a white bakers twine bow around and popped it in my box. Susanne is a huge cat lover and I know that she will put them to get use!

Don’t forget, the punch will pop out the cat image on the DSP….how clever!







One thing that I love to give as hostess gifts are tags. Wouldn’t this be an amazing idea to do making Holiday Tags?

I do not worry one bit if I am giving Holiday tags to someone and it is super close to Christmas….the way that I look at it is….they will ALWAYS get used and trust me, it would be a HIT of a GIFT~

Think about birthday enclosures…I just was squealing with excitement when I created this – it is a win-win because it is super clever but it is super useful!

Remember, handmade will TRUMP a store bought gift any day…and not only will you feel great….the lucky recipient will love it as well! You see…it’s FUN to think out of the box!
