Hello Sunshine My Paper Pumpkin Cards

I had time over the weekend to complete all the cards that came in the February 2016 My Paper Pumpkin Kit.  You can see the contents of the kit in THIS POST.  They are so bright and cheerful, like a breath of sunshine....The kit is called Hello Sunshine.
I followed the instructions that were included in the kit to make these 9 cards.

I made these cards with some extra pieces from the kit and other stamps that were included.  It is so fun to be creative and come up with alternative ideas. 

Thanks for stopping by today, I would love to read your comments, if you would take a moment to comment below I really appreciate it.  Have a creative day.

Tutorial for One Sheet Tote Bag Treat Holder

I love this little treat holder that looks like a purse or a tote bag.  I made this one for the Stampin' Friends Blog Hop, you can see that post HERE

In that post I said I would post a tutorial on how you can make your own treat holder.

Simply Scored Scoring Tool and Stylus
Ruler and Scoring Stylus
Tear & Tape Adhesive
Fast Fuse Adhesive
1 sheet of 8-1/2" x 11" Cardstock, I am using Sahara Sand
Designer Series Paper, 2 pieces cut to 3-1/2" x 4-1/4"
Cardstock for Trim, 2 pieces cut to 5/8" x 4-1/2"
Cardstock for Handles, 2 pieces cut to 5/8" x 8-1/2"
Candy Dots Brad Bases
Pearl Basic Jewels
Handheld 1/8" Hole Punch
Paper Snips
Circle Stick on Velcro Fastener 

Score on long side at 3/4", 4-1/2", 6-1/2", 10-1/4"
Turn paper to short side and score at 2", 6-1/2"
Measure 2" from the 4-1/2" & 6-1/2" score lines and score diagonally to the edge
I have drawn lines to show you where to score, score both sides of paper

Fold on all score lines
 Fold the diagonal score lines

Apply Tear & Tape Adhesive from the diagonal score line to the corner on all 4 sides

Adhere edges down and secure

Fold the center two score lines to form the box bottom

Bring the top two edges together and pinch in the sides of box

Ready to decorate and embellish
Here is what I used to finish mine
Add brads to handles and a velcro fastener to the inside

All finished! What do you think? 
I hope you will be inspired to create your own One Sheet Tote Bag Treat Holder.  Thanks for stopping by today,   please take a moment to leave a comment if you wish.  I love reading comments.
