HSS Anything BUT a Card Challenge #30

Good Morning Stampers!! I am so glad that I FINALLY get to share this project with you all! I have to admit that I made this several weeks ago, and have been saving it for this month… I just couldn’t hang onto the bread this long :)
But this week over at HSS we are having an ANYTHING BUT A CARD challenge, yes that means ANYTHING goes!!! MDS, scrap pages, 3-D items, gifts, ANYTHING. Lets take a look see at what I did for this challenge…

First, I made a bunch of these mini zucchini breads and I needed a CUTE way to give them away to that ladies that I visit teach. I had bought these boxes from Stampin’ Up! a while ago and forgot that I actually had them… you wouldn’t believe at how often that actually happens- A LOT!!!

This is how the box comes, I am hopeful that they will carry something similar to these in the Holiday Mini… I think I actually have that in my possession- I should probably take a look and see what they have in store for us. :)

I put the box/bag together, placed 3 of my mini breads in a cello bag (also from SU- I believe they are the Med. size) and secured it with a twisty tie. Then I placed a card with the package- with a sweet note, of course!

First I placed the bag inside, and MAN was I relieved to know that the bread fit inside perfectly. Whew!

Then slid the card in next… so far so good!

See it actually fits! They come with this cute little flap that holds the top close- Ingenious!!!

Then I finished it off with a personal tag, I used a sharpie pen to write on this vellum metal edge tag and slid it through the handle to finish off the gift. What an EASY simple way to package a delicious gift. You could make your own boxes and bags using the Big Shot & the die cuts from Stampin’ Up! or through MDS (My Digital Studio) you can download templates for all kinds of adorable little packaging ideas.

Well I hope you enjoyed today’s project and now that my kiddo’s are BACK IN SCHOOL I have LOTS more free time on my hands with out the constant reminder that “I’m Bored”. So e on the look out for fun projects and maybe some cool give aways!!! Until next time~ TTFN



  1. So cute – love the brad bags! :) I have several of the retired bags and boxes punch outs – wonder if I could find a cute way to use them now.
