Fathers, Food Fun, and More

The Papertrey April release countdown continues today with our first group post featuring some darling and innovative food-themed stamps and dies.

All of the new products will be available at 10 pm EST on April 15 in the Papertrey Ink store.

Lizzie Jones designed this first collection of products. So awesome for masculine projects! We have King of the Grill, which is a super clever take on the burger, as well as a fry box and popcorn bucket  dies, along with stamps and dies for decorating your treat boxes.

Let me show you how I've put them together:

First, the Favor It: Fry Box. I die-cut mine out of Kraft card stock, stamped the Boxed Background Stripes in white, then added a cute tag done with Treat Box Tag Lines stamps and the Treat Box Tag die. For some color and contrast, I added a large Enchanted Evening circle on the inside of the box. That was die-cut with the previously released Pint Size Wrap die.

StampsBoxed Background Stripes, Treat Box Tag Lines

DiesTreat Box Tag, Favor It: Fry Box, Pint Size Wrap

Ink: Fresh Snow, Enchanted Evening, Green Parakeet, Canyon Clay

Paper: Stamper's Select White, Classic Kraft, and Enchanted Evening card stock

Other: foam adhesive, cellophane back, jute twine, button

King of the Grill is sooooo flippin' cute! The different layers allow you to build all sorts of burger combinations with various burger ingredients. Soooo, so fun! The top and bottoms of the bun, as well as the olive, as die-cut, the other ingredients are stamped directly onto the card base. Your burger can be as big or small as you like!

Along the top, I stamped some colorful streamers from Birthday Style, and along the left, I added an Enchanted Navy Background Basics: Super Gingham border.

Here's another look at the different burger layers.

 Next up is another really cute and clever idea, this one designed by Erin Lincoln:

It starts with little snack cups that you find in the grocery store. Erin has come up with a Snack Cup Wrap die, an easy die to wrap the cup, as well as a darling Paper Puff Topper to turn the snack cups into adorable cupcakes. (Erin has also designed a Snack Cup Box that some of the other designers will be showing today.)

I wrapped each cup, topped with Paper Puff Toppers, then embellished with Limeade Ice bows, Keep It Simple: Just For You tags, and Bitty Butterflies.

The Paper Puff Toppers are cut in two pieces. I used the Berry Sorbet, Harvest Gold, and Hawaiian Shores pattern packs.

These are so sweet and assemble quickly! The cups are perfect for small treats -- mints, jelly beans, brownie bites, nuts/seeds, and much more.

Kathy Mc said...

Very cute treat wraps, Amy, but love your double-stacked burger. All so beautifully done!

Kate said...

Really awesome idea to make an altered snack cup! Is there a "standard" size that you find in the grocery store? Is it a 2 ounce size? I found a pack of 50 of them for $3.00 at Walmart but not sure if that size would fit the dimensions of the die. Thanks so much if you get the chance to write back!

Erin mentioned that she designed the die to work with the Diamond brand 2-ounce snack cups that she gets at Target. I suspect other brands would work too but to be absolutely sure look for Diamond!
