Come join the parties!

Weekend fun! We are celebrating several birthdays and other events coming up as Tombo and I will be headed to the UK soon. Phew! But sometimes you need more than a card. We are not only celebrating birthdays, we have the end of the school year parties and celebrations like graduations and of course a couple weddings thrown in there also! I find myself looking for quick projects to add that special touch to these events. I recently did a whole birthday themed workshop where we made a card, treat holder and gift bag. I shared the card Thursday, today I want to share the treat holder and bag. While we did these for with a birthday theme- I'm thinking of redoing with a different Designer Series paper for Mother's day luncheon and teacher appreciation week at my grandkids schools. I'm a believer in the KISS principle. Keep It Simple Sister.
This card is a make and take we did last year before the 2017-2018 annual catalog  debuted with the cute Birthday Memories DSP! I love the nostalgic feeling of this paper. I used a different piece to wrap around the candy holder. I saw a wrapper like this on Pinterest and just tried to figure it out. The base is 2 x 11, scored at 1 1/4, 3 3/4, and 4 1/4. I punched both ends with the scalloped tag punch, turned the smallest scored piece forward and the other turn score lines away from me. The band is 2 x 6 scored at 1 1/2, 2, 4, 4 1/2,. I wrapped it around the base and adhered on the back with Snail adhesive. The circles on the front are punched with the 1 1/2 and 1 3/8 circle punches. I stamped the saying from
More than Chocolate (143689) and a small piece of candy in Early Espresso and Chocolate Chip. The nuggets are covered with 1 x 3 strips of paper an placed in a 2" x 8" cello bag.(141703).  This bag is tired with the 1/4" Stitched-Edge Ribbon( 144199) in Pacific PointI love the Balloon Honeycomb Embellishment (144124) for just a little extra. I recreated the same treat wrapper with the Cake Soiree DSP and Berry Burst cardstock. On this one, I used the 3/8" Powder Pink Shimmer Ribbon (144151) and the cute little bow from the Mini Gift Bows pack (144127). This one looks like a great shower table favor or something for a Mother's day tea, very elegant.The Whisper White piece in the back can be stamped with a message or can be a place to write or sign your name. I just love making these. So cute and easy!
