I made these cute little Santa treat holders to give as some gifts. I think they turned out pretty cute.
I cut my red cardstock 4.25" x 7.75". I used a corner rounder punch on the corners. I scored at 3.25" from each end. I used a scallop border punch to do the white center. It was 1.25" wide. I cut black cardstock .75" for the belt. I used a Stampin Up punch for the buckle and cut a 1 inch piece of the black strip to put in the center. I punched a hole in the center and tied ribbon through it to hold it closed. It held 4 bite size candy bars.
I have a son on a mission. The mail isnt super reliable, so Ive not sent a package yet. When he was in the MTC I sent one every week. Just wanted to let him know we love him, so I made him this card. He has grown up with me making crafts, and scrapbooking so he appreciates this kind of thing.
I have been a slacker at keeping up my blog. I made some halloween treats to take visiting teaching, and for my co-workers. I found the tutorial at Split Coast Stampers. I thought they turned out cute!
I will try to do better at updating more frequently. Not sure that anyone even looks at my blog anymore.
Here is another idea to ask and answer someone for a school dance.
The girl brought over a jar of pickles with this note on it.
He did not want to eat the pickles and he had already figured out who it was...but when he was turning the jar around to see if she had put her name inside, we found it taped to the bottom...so he never had to open them :)
The dance is a Valentine's Dance, so he answered her with a conversation heart
I cut two hearts the same size, I sewed them mostly all the way together and then put candy inside with a note that said "It would be a treat to go to Girl's Choice with you". I then finished sewing it closed. We glued the YES on after, but I would recommend putting it on before you put candy inside.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope these ideas are helping someone.
I had heard that you couldn't upload pictures to Blogger anymore, so I thought I would test to see if I could do it. Luckily it will upload for me. This is my cat on Christmas morning. She loved her new toys LOL.
Hopefully it continues to let me upload pictures, or I wont be able to blog anymore. I do not want to have to download a picture browser to be able to upload.
Ill try to update with crafty stuff or something soon!
