((Fair warning…this is kind of a long post.  Grab that cuppa, sit back and enjoy this post and the entire hop))

Hello ‘Fetti Fans and welcome to the February Confetti Creative Hop!

It’s the 8th of the month and, as you know, we hop on the 8th of every month.  Since this month is  a non-release month, we “just” have some fabulous Confetti Creativity to share with you.  We know that you love to see Anything But a Card projects and that is what we have for you today!  There’s a Valentine’s theme to all our projects, but these really can be used throughout the year with a tweak of a sentiment or color scheme.

You’re at the first stop along the hop.  In case of a break or if you detour, there is a full list of Confetti Crew members and ‘Fetti Friends hopping today later in this post.

***Be sure to leave a comment at each stop along the way for a chance to win!  Comments are open until Thursday at noon CST and a winner will be announced on the WEEK IN REVERSE post on Friday.***

If you are newsletter subscriber (link on sidebar) you already know why this is an “extra sweet” hop…


I had a Valentine’s sale planned for next weekend, but I figured today is as good a day as any to tell you that WE LOVE YOU with a 3-day sale.  We really do love all our ‘Fetti Fans!  Be sure you share your Reverse Confetti creations with us!

I was recently sketching out a die design for a box when I had a little bit of a “lightbulb moment.”  The shapes that I was working with were are part of our TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts die set.  I ran up to my studio to see if what was in my head would work.  It is my pleasure to say, “YES…it worked”  Don’t you love when that happens!?!

Here’s the finished box I created using the TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts die set…

(tutorial follows)


Totally cute.  Totally easy.

Here’s the how to:

1. Cut 4 of the rounded top tag from the TAGGED TOTE Confetti Cuts die set and 1 square measuring 2 9/16″.


2. Score all 4 of the rounded top tags at 1″ from the straight edge.


3. Score 2 of the rounded top tags at 1/4″ from the rounded edge.


4. Layer the 2 rounded top tags that you scored in step #3 and punch 2 holes side by side.


5. Attach 2 panels to the bottom of your square.  The 2 with the holes punched at the top must be opposite each other.


6. Attach the other 2 panels to bottom of square.


(optional) 7. Cut another 2 9/16″ square, stamp/embellish and add to inside center.

I stamped the “It’s ‘o-fish-al’…” sentiment from SUGARY SWEET SENTIMENTS and my daughter’s name with LIGHTHEARTED LETTERS.  The heart is cut from red cardstock with the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set.


8. Add treats.  I used Swedish Fish to coordinate with the sentiment.


9. Overlap 2 panels without holes punched and adhere together. (no pic)

10. Pull hole punched panels together and close off with ribbon.


Top view…


I am so pleased with how this turned out and how quickly it came together.  I know I’ll be making a few more of these and giving them out as little gifties for friends, family, teachers and neighbors.  I can already see pastel colors and jelly beans as  little tweaks to make these more spring/Easter themed.
