Poppystamps~Buttons Galore & More Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Poppystamps and Buttons Galore & More blog hop!  If you are hopping along, you just came from the talented Connie Mercer blog! 

Today I'll be sharing a few projects I made including treat boxes, dog treats and boxes, a shaker card, and a surprise idea in the video link below!  I had a lot of fun with these projects.

IMPORTANT:  BUTTONS WERE NOT USED FOR TREAT BOXES TO GIVE CHILDREN, AS BUTTONS CAN BE A POTENTIAL CHOKING HAZARD.  THE TREAT BOXES WERE MADE WITH CO-WORKERS AND ADULT FRIENDS IN MIND. 

Candy Apple Box

This little treat box was made using the Key Lime sparkle buttons with a "No Tricks Only Treats" caramel apple button as an embellishment.  In addition, I used the gorgeous sequin mix called "Not So Heavy Metal" for extra sparkle. The Pointed Oval Frames from Poppystamps made it so easy to create the frame, as well as the Rectangle Basics set from Memory Box.  

Halloween Jack-o-Lantern and Bat

The Pumpkin Collage from Poppystamps' new fall release was used for this treat box (Scalloped Treat Box by Lawn Fawn), and the adorable bat glued on top of the bow added the perfect embellishment. I love the bats from the "Bat" set by Buttons Galore & More.  The black background is a cool paper called "Black Raindrops" by The Paper Company. 

Treat Box with Witch hat

Using the same method as above, I just switched it up a bit by adding a different paper and a witch hat from "The Witching Hour" button set from Buttons Galore & More.  

Button and tulle bow

Here was an example using tulle threaded through the "Ice" button from Buttons Galore & More to create a bow embellishment.  I love how there is a bow on the top of the box, but it is actually glued on as an embellishment thanks to the button providing a base - so there is no bow to unravel after the opening of the box.  It stays cute!

Homemade Dog Biscuit Treats

Dogs need treats, too!  These homemade dog biscuits are a favorite, and we make them for our dogs often.  The recipe can be found here.  

These treat bags were made using the Rectangle Basics Layer Set by Memory Box and feature a slide-off button closure.  No bows needed!  I love how the Stitched Market Tags allow a base for the (ADORABLE) dog biscuit button embellishments from the Doggie Delights set.  Since I was able to use the tags, there was no need to glue the dog bone to a bow, so it all remains perfectly functional while staying cute!  The video down below features the dog treat bags as the project tutorial.

Autumn Pumpkin Shaker Card

I loved the effect of wrapping the pumpkin and threading a bow through the matching button on top. It's a perfect match in style and color.  The awesome selection of button colors allows for unlimited creativity with die cuts. This button was from the "Tangerine" buttons. 

Pumpkin Shaker Card

I used the beautiful Oak Leaf Oval Collage by Poppystamps, along with the pumpkin from the Pumpkin Collage.  I love the versatility of the pumpkin collage because it can also be a jack-o-lantern, or a frame can also be attached. GREAT die.  In addition, I used the Stitched Pumpkin Leaves set also by Poppystamps, and the Pointed Rectangle Frame set for the orange frame, with the Pointed Oval Frames for the ovals.  The woodgrain texture was added using an embossing folder. 

Here's a quick video!
