Handmade Hodgepodge...

I'm back today to share some projects made with a new stamp set coming out by Papertrey Ink this month on the 15th called Handmade Hodgepodge. This will be a $5.00 set and comes with 7 different stamps that say, "handmade by/handmade for you". Great for adding a tag to your home made gifts, or on the back of a card!

First, I made a little box full of Oreo lollipops.
I wanted to make something that was "Valentine-ish" for gifts. I found this idea on Pinterest, but it's from the Hip Hip Hooray blog. See the little tag? That is stamped with the new set.

Let me tell you a little bit about how I made these!

About the oreo lollies --

Super easy, but I have one tip! Use the DOUBLE stuff Oreos. Easier to get the stick in between the top and bottom cookie of the Oreo.

After I put the sticks in, I coated the Oreos with white chocolate, added sprinkles, and put them in the freezer for a few minutes. I wrapped them in cellophane and tied them with twine.
Next, I grabbed a box. It's a Papertrey Ink box that the stamps come in! I love that it's clear. I added 4 lollipops inside, alternating the directions of the sticks to fit more of them in. (You could probably fit 5 lollies, but my girls ate the rest. HA)




I wrapped the box with Hawaiian Shores Swiss Dot ribbon and tied it in a bow. This will slide off when the recipient opens the box.
The tag is cut out of white cardstock with a new Papertrey Ink die coming out this month called Limitless Layers 2.5" oval - set of 5 dies. I stamped the "handmade" from the Handmade Hodgepodge set and the swirls/flowers are from a new set called Simply Jane.
I felt like the top needed a tiny pop of red, so I added a loop of twine and a Little Yellow Bicycle pin.

I have a couple of quick cards too made with the Handmade Hodgepodge stamps...

Here I stamped two of the Handmade Hodgepodge stamps (house and oval) and added a saying from another new set called Script Sentiments over the top. Inks are Raspberry Fizz, Hawaiian Shores and Smokey Shadow.

This card utilizes the same oval die and I stamped with Fresh Snow Ink and embossed it with white embossing powder to really make it pop against the Raspberry Fizz cardstock. The background is from the Background Basics: Text Style set.
I hope you will grab this cute stamp set on the 15th at www.papertreyink.com, so many fun uses for it!

Love these darling projects - thanks for the oreo treat sticks step by step as well. My kids are gonna love this idea!!!!!!!! And what a fun treat idea to give to friends. I've been meaning to take a moment to post a comment to let you know how much I've enjoyed all of your work with PTI. You truly are an amazing artist who has provided me with tons and tons of inspiration. In your post earlier this month you mentioned that the glassine envelope minim made with the Garden variety frame was one of your favorites. Mine too! I have relooked at that project more times than I care to admit and it inspired me to buy all of the products (even the Crate paper line!) to try and replicate it. So amazing! Thanks for sharing your ideas!

Your packaging is so pretty. I would love to get such a package -- even empty would look pretty. Your color choices, ribbons, and tags are so "happy" looking.
