A Sweet Gift Idea & PDE Linky Party #18 - My Paper Craze

It’s so much fun surprising a friend or family member with a little “just because” gift.  This one I’m sharing with you today literally took just minutes to put together.  I found this adorable title file at Miss Kate Cuttables.  I’m sure I’ve mentioned before that I love her files because they import already filled with the layers in the correct colors.  Of course you can change them if you want a different color scheme but this one was perfect “as is” for my little treat box.  I used the print & cut feature on my trusty Silhouette for the title and added some dimension with the orange and leaves cut from glitter cardstock.  You can never go wrong with glitter!  Anyway, I slapped my title onto a tag shape and it was done.  Easy Peasy!  I must admit that this little project has already brightened my day just trying to decide who to give it to!


  • Miss Kate Cuttables Orange You Sweet Title Cut File
  • Green chevron ribbon from Michael’s
  • Acrylic box from Pick Your Plum
  • Orange slices candy
  • Cardstock from my stash
  • Silhouette cutting machine
  • Printer
  • Adhesive

So now that I’ve shared my project, jump on over to Pause Dream Enjoy and link up!  For an added bonus, check out the other link ups and DT projects for even more inspiration!

Thanks for stopping in and see you soon!
