Hello Crafty Friends,
I am making a special guest designer appearance today at My Mouse Dreams for Thursday Treats after a conversation with Beckie and I am super excited to be a part of a her new series to showcase treat holders. I love to make treat bags for family, friends, students, and co-workers. The look on their face always makes me happy and want to make more. Valentine's Day is approaching quickly, so I am getting started now.
I found this cute gift box (Unicorn Splash Box) on Silhouette Design Store and added a few pieces from my collection to personalize it. I used both my Cricut and Cameo to create today's treat holder.
The MFT stitched scalloped circle fits in the center and any die-cut or image would be perfect. I found this hippo colored by my daughter in her craft area and snatched it up (I figured she hadn't used him yet, so why not showcase him.). He just looks so happy. The stamped sentiment is from the same MFT Happy Hippo stamp set. The Hershey Nuggets were covered with Jaded Blossoms Candy Wraps and the hearts were cut from MFT Blueprints 13.
Every treat bag needs a big bow! I just got this MFT Stitched Beautiful Bow die set not too long ago and decided it fit perfectly. I watched a video because the first time I cut the bow and tried to wrap it around it had creases. Yuck! The video said to prep the paper. I had to rub the paper between my fingers and curve it. It worked! No creases!
I am so glad Beckie has started this Treat Thursday series. Perhaps you could be next to share your favorite treat holder. Leave a message and she may ask you too!
