Treat Carrier and more from Lifestyle Crafts

It's still Take-A-Look Tuesday - scroll down a post for that...


I had the chance to play with some more dies from Lifestyle Crafts - - remember, they'll work in any hand-crank die cut machine! Want to see what I made??  First, here's a peek of the new just-released dies:


So here's what a die looks like, on the left - this the one for the hanging box - you roll it through and it cuts and scores the paper in the appropriate places.

Then you just fold along the fold lines and glue the box into shape.   I have a few things in a local boutique, and I think this will be a perfect way to package small items - I can't wait to use them!!

Next up, the tickets - so fun - - who doesn't love a string of tickets, and now you can make your own!  I will use these with my Paparazzi Parties - have guests put their name on them for doorprize drawings, etc.

Sidenote, this isn't one of the new dies but it's one that's available - the matchbox - it's one of my favorites!!  Lately for birthday parties we've been giving Paparazzi rings and bracelets - they fit perfect and cute in this little box!

Alright, a final show-off of the new die cuts - this one is called "treat carrier" - it is so cute!!  It really shows off the double-sided paper (I bought that at Lifestyle Crafts as well, a few months ago) - with the die, you cut 2 and then assemble the treat carrier.  It's perfect size to hold 2 cupcakes and then you just use the handle and away you go - so fun!!  I know I'll be making a bunch of these in the future!  They could also hold candies or cookies or anything - sky's the limit - the box makes anything look fancy!
So check out all that Lifestyle Crafts has to offer - - you can even use the code "SUGARBEE" for a discount - sweet!!

And side note, those cupcakes were the best I've ever had - I'll tell you all about them on Saturday....

Whoa! way to cute! I love the little boxes.

I am loving that carrier. What a fun thing to play with....

How cute- I love that treat carrier! I'd feel like Martha Stewart bringing cupcakes to someone in that thing!

these look fantastic, looking forward to the cupcake details. I'm currently looking at a hand crank die cutter, would you mind telling me which one you have? I've been looking at the bigshot but I'm interested in hearing what others are using before I purchase one. Especially since they're much more expensive to buy over here than in America, any info is appreciated. Thanks :)

I have one called the Epic 6 - I like it, but I don't have anything to compare it to - - you can buy it from Lifestyle Crafts, and if you use the code "SUGARBEE" I think you get 10 or 20% discount... here's the one i have:http://lifestylecrafts.com/products/tools/epic-6-cutting-embossing-tool.html

but I got it in this kit:http://lifestylecrafts.com/products/tools/epic-6-tool-letterpress-combo.html
