Double die-cuts!!

Hi! Here is another little treat holder created from the Candy Wrapper Die. But this time I used 2 die-cuts and adhered them together to make it longer. The seam is covered up by the cardstock & DSP. I folded the bottom so that it is flat and pinched the top together, instead of twisting. So pretty! You can't see it, but the Pink Pirouette cardstock is shimmery! I sprayed it with a Shimmer Paint/Alcohol mixture in a Mist bottle. Oh, and the DSP that I used is retired!! Sorry!

Have a great Friday!!!

Candy Wrapper - flat bottoms!

Hi! Here are a couple of treat holders using the Candy Wrapper Die. For these, I folded the bottom, so that it was flat. For the tops, I did each one a bit different. For the one on the left, I pinched the sides together keeping it flat. Then held it close with some ribbon. For the one on the right, I did the traditional "twist" on the top. No adhesive or ribbon is necessary to keep it closed.
Please let me know if you have questions on these treats!!

The card that keeps giving...

Hi! Back in September, I attended a local Demonstrator event organized by my downline, Sally. She asked me to be part of the her Make & Take Design Team, and of course I said yes! Here is my make & take that I designed for Sally's event.

Following is the inside of the card. When I was at convention, one of the projects that was demonstrated on stage was a "recycled" card. By "recycled", I mean the card that keeps giving and giving. On the inside of the card, there is a small scalloped envelope with a few inserts inside the envelope. You can write your little message on the insert to the recipient. The recipient can then use the next insert for a Thank You card when she needs it. So this card can keep going and going. Brilliant!

Stamps: French Foliage, Thank You Kindly
Ink: Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake
Paper: Crumb Cake, Cajun Craze, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Scallop Envelope, Texture Plates Kit #4, Big Shot, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Punch, Modern Label Punch, Metallic Brads, Dimensionals

Have a great day!!

some Halloween projects!!

Hi! Wow!! That was a long break!! Sometimes you just need a break, right???

Can somebody please tell me where October went?? Can't believe Halloween is this Sunday!!! I'm here today to show you some cute little Halloween Treat projects.

I just love the Candy Wrapper Die that is in the Holiday Mini Catalog. To tell you the truth, I trashed the first one I made. But after I got the feel on how to do the little twist, it's quite simple!!! And sooooooo cute!!!! Imagine making these for Christmas, Birthdays, Valentines, wedding favors, shower favors...anything!! Perfect for those sweet treats!!

My next project for you is a little holder for those cute test tubes that you have seen all over the net. And wouldn't you know it...I looked all over for Halloween M&M's since they would coordinate with the DSP, but I couldn't find any. So I had to settle for the Fall colors! But that's ok. No matter what color they are, they all taste yummy!!

And this next little project is one created by my good friend and fellow demonstrator, Rita. Very cute!! Rita was handing these out for her swap at our last Demonstrator Get-Together.

Ok, there you have it...a few Halloween Treats for you!!
Have a great week!
