Are you loving the Papertrey Ink Peeks this month?

Just when I think it can’t get better, somehow, someway, it always does.

Well now you have had some peeks at the TRIO of My Timeless Templates © that are being released on the 15th! I really can’t wait  😀

We have :

File it with Flair ©  Captured Card Case ©  and Bun in the Oven ©

Now I hope you are up for MORE ideas using each one. So let me share some more ideas, and show some MORE versatility.

File it with Flair is INSANELY versatile. INSANE! I totally love this template 😀

File it with Flair Goes GIFT BOX?!

Say what!


This is seriously the best gift BOX I have ever seen! LOL!

These colors are inspired by a bathing suit on a TV show Alexa watches called iCarly.


Dark Chocolate, Raspberry  Fizz, Ripe Avocado, Summer Sunset & white.

For today’s peek I printed  2 File it with Flair templates .


2 boxes separately

I used FriendsTil the End set

This is a detail photo


I used Shimmerz to paint it, and added a Making Memories page pebble for dimension.

So one file template is  in chocolate, the other in summer sunset. Cut, scored, and assembled as directed-except when I made the summer sunset one, I cut down the top by 1/4 inch. So, instead of making it FILES boxes, I slide the summer sunset one into the dark chocolate one-and VIOLA! TOTALLY rockin gift box.


Look how the curves make it SO cool looking. This is such a great box for a teen.

NOTE: Just make sure you slide it in the correct way-as shown here


If you slide it in with the (summer sun box) tall end at the top, you get a large gap, amking you think it doesn’t go together. So basically a tall end at top, and tall end at bottom. Just ensure you are putting it together correctly BEFORE stamping ! LOL!

I could go on and on about this box! But I won’t. Instead Ill move on to the next template.

How about another version of the Bun in the Oven template?

Now the previous samples are all cutesy and whimsical. Well, what if YOU aren’t that cutesy type? Can this template STILL be one you would use?

Well I would have to say YES! Of course it can.


Sending you a happy hello…

Well how about an more “elegant sample? I ADORE this box!

Same “oven” template. Can you believe it? I don’t see an OVEN at all, do you?


All I did was round the tab top corners, and instead of using the “oven door” template, I simply made a slider cover (directions for that come with template) instead.

I also punched a window, where I used my Poppin Acetate technique to give the bird some color, and shimmer.


This used the PTI anniversary set-Everyday Classics. I love the paper, but for the LIFE of me cannot remember WHO makes it. Its like 2 years old. It match Aqua Mist perfectly!!


Now you may notice another “difference” with this sample-look at the pretty scalloped base. Doesn’t it make this look like a special display case or a fancy “jewelry” box type of presentation with that added base on it?

I used the largest Label #1 nestability to make my base. I think it gave the template a nice twist. I snipped the edges and adhered with Scor-tape for a sturdy base for the box to be layered onto.

I just love it.

OK now moving onto the third template- Captured Card Case


Have a goodie

As I said before, and I’ll say it again-this isn’t JUST a card case! How about a candy box? These are chocolate cookies, covered in chocolate, and more crushed cookies. TDF!!! I got them at Target 😀 I LOVE Target!

Yes! I did eat a “couple” :C Only the broken the ones!! I gave this box to my dad who came to visit this past weekend.

He LOVED it.


I have to say I LOVE the dual colors for this box template:D Makes a nice presentation, and while simple has a big impact. A great template for mass producing a NICE gift. EASY PEASY!

So I “repackaged” the pre-bought cookies (cause you all know how much I LOVE to cook/bake-NOT!) and now they look so much more special than throwing a box of store bought cookies to a friend-KWIM? I’d much rather spend my time putting thought INTO the gift packaging than MAKING it. If you do both, there goes the whole day! I like to call it TIME MANAGEMENT skills.

I used Wise Owl, Handwritten Note, and Beyond Basic Borders.

I cut my window in my lid PRIOR to assembling!


How cute is that owl?

I outlined my Bridal Confetti flowers with a marker. I like the look.


Well that is all for me.
