Well hello, hello to all you lovely ladies!
Here we are at the halfway mark for the week and I hope all is going well in your corner of the world. I'm still plugging away at my to-do list but nothing too overwhelming... yet... ;)
Today over at the Club Anya & Friends blog Lysa has a Wild Card Wednesday challenge that I found to be a fun change up from my usual cards. She wants everyone to create some cute Valentine's treat holders!
The one I came up with is super simple, just cut a nice weight double sided paper to a 5"x12" strip. Then I scored fold lines at 4 1/2", 6" and 10 1/2" to create a little tent for my bag of candy to rest in. Once I folded everything I just punched a half circle out of the top so the tissue paper could come up through it and secure the candy in place.
Now I realize that using the Forest Friends squirrels doesn't really qualify as being part of the Anya and friends crew but this little scene popped into my head as I was flipping through my stamps so I just had to go with it. I altered them a bit by wiping away the acorn then replacing it with the faux Hershey Kiss I made. Can you tell I was having fun with this? ;)
Now I hope you can make some time in the next couple days to play along too!
Alrighty, time for work. Check ya later! :)
