Going Green


When I took a class this fall from Tim Holtz, he talked about how he used blister packs to create some of his projects. Blister packs are the pre-formed, hard plastic cases that many of our items are packaged in today.

When my Stampin’ Up! clear mount blocks arrived, I noticed that the blister packs they came in were perfect for holding small treats.


This is how the clear mount blocks are packaged.


Once you open the package to get your clear mount block, save the instruction booklet to use as the template for your background. This is a great way to use up some of your scraps to decorate the blister pack. For this project, I used the following items.

115370 Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set $36.95
118592 Tiny Tags Clear Mount Stamp Set $16.95
103133 Classic Stampin Pad Real Red $5.95
117153 Sending Love Specialty Designer Series Paper $11.95
100459 Card Stock Pretty In Pink 8 1/2X11 $5.50
106530 Card Stock Very Vanilla 12X12 $7.50
116630 Punch Modern Label $15.95
105090 Punch Word Window $15.95

These are the assorted brads that are in the package.
117272 Brads Epoxy Sending Love Chocolate Chip 1/4 Inch $3.25
117271 Brads Epoxy Sending Love Pretty In ink 1/2 Inch $4.95
117270 Brads Epoxy Sending Love Real Red 1/2 Inch $4.95

Please send pictures of items that you have made using blister packs to me at cheng1170@sbcglobal.net. I'll be happy to share them on my blog.

Happy stamping,
