Sweet Treats

I'm back today with another way to use all of your paper scraps for
something other than scrapping.

Since Valentine's Day is quickly approaching, it's time to think about giving little momentos to those you love. So here is a quick & easy project...

Wouldn't you love to see the smile and hear a squeal when your kids open their doors on Valentine's morning to find one of these hanging there??

We tucked a cookie into ours but you can fill them with whatever sweet goodie you'd like.

Super simple to make ~ AND you can get 2 holders out 1 sheet of 12x12 paper!

First trace and cut out your desired paper ~ double sided works best since
you'll be folding the backside up.

We used a piece from Kaiser Crafts **Love Notes** collection for this one
and left the decorative border on the top

Score and fold on the lines to create the pocket. Secure with Glue Dots or
Tacky Glue ~ these will hold better and longer than a tape runner!

Use a large circle punch at the top for the hanger part.

And then embellish to your hearts desire!

And don't think these are just for Valentine's Day...they're for ANYTIME! and ANYONE!

A teacher would love to walk to her classroom and find one of these on her door.
Or surprise your best friend and hang one on her car's antenna for when she leaves for work!

We made this one for a little guys birthday. . . .

The sky is the limit on these treat holders so use your imagination and your scraps!

By the way....we have the template at The Shoppe.
So if you'd like to make some, stop on by!

Have fun!
