Fresh From the Oven

Wow, is it Tuesday already?

Well since it IS Tuesday, that means you get to see something fresh from my "oven!"

This is Rachel B, here with you on this fine morning to share with you something new I made with this fabulous stamp set:
Isn't that set so cute?

And if you look closely, you can see that some of the stars have a holiday image inside them. Wouldn't those be cute as little treats as the Holidays approach?

Here is what I did with them:Handy little Sucker Treats!

To make:
I took a 2"x4.25" piece of cardstock and scored the landscape side at 2" and 2.25."
I then stamped my sentiment on the outside of the holder on the front and back. I then printed the stars at 1.5" square onto some patterned paper. Next I cut the stars out. I adhered the stars under my sentiment (on both front and back of outside).
I took into consideration when putting my sentiment and star on the cover that I would be making two holes at the bottom of the cover to keep the cover closed with a ribbon. To make the holes, I folded the cover at my score lines and held the bottoms together and punched two holes toward the center with my crop-a-dile.

Finally, I put the sucker inside the cover and strung some curling ribbon through the holes (making sure the sucker stick was in between the holes and ribbon) and then tied the ends to themselves.

Easy as punch! Just think of the little treat holders you could make in Halloween colors or for Christmas! So easy and fast too!
