Blog Hop - Easter Candy Gifts!

Welcome to this month's Blog Hop sponsored by Paper Wings!
Paper Wings is a great community site devoted to The Angel Company.

I decided to make an Easter Candy Gift Holder and give you the full details on how to make this cute and fast item. I think you'll agree that these are so simple, cost effective, and you can whip them up really fast.

1. You start by cutting a piece of cardstock to 4" x 12" (you can make 3 of these from one 12" x 12" sheet of cardstock). The heavier the cardstock the better.

2. Then you score it at 4", 6", and 10" using your ScorPal ... see above (I made pen lines to demonstrate where scores are ... so you can see)

3. Then make a 3" circle in the panel shown above. I used a circle Nestability.

4. Then take the Corner Chomper and 1/2" corner round each corner ... fold on scores and punch through both layers. The Corner Chomper works great for this project ... it goes through chipboard or multiple layers with ease!

Here is what it looks like after you've corner rounded.

5. Then cut a piece of transparency or acetate to 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" and attach it to cover the circle opening.

6. Using a 1" circle punch, punch a half circle in the top and across the bottom edge.

Here is what it looks like after you've punched the half circles.

7. Then it's time to decorate. I used the bunny and sentiment from the Hoppity Skippity set. I colored the bunny with my copic markers.

8. Finally fill it with your favorite treat (I used Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs). I use candy/treat bags that you can find at your local craft store in the candy/cake decorating aisle. They are about 4" x 10" long. I then tied it with pretty ribbon (I used Toodle Loo ribbon by TAC) and trimmed the excess bag.

Happy Birthday

Birthday Cupcake

I had to make a quick birthday card for a co-worker. I used Cupcake Cuties for this card with the sentiment from English Everyday Cuties.

I colored the cupcake with Copics and then added gold stickles to the flame. I punched it out with a circle punch and then mounted it on a scalloped circle made of the patterned paper. I matted everything and then added ribbon and gems.

It's a great and easy card to whip a whole bunch up!

Sock Monkey Madness
Today my BFF Kim and I (along with Jenni) went to Sock Monkey Madness here in my hometown of Rockford, IL. Did you know that the sock monkey was originated in Rockford, IL. It was and every year they host this wonderful Sock Monkey event! You can make your own sock monkey, learn all about the sock monkey, and buy just about anything for the sock monkey!

We started with breakfast at the Stockholm Inn and posed with the sock monkey.

Then it was off to Midway Village, where we had signed up to make our own sock monkey. We chose to make the special sock bunny though and Jenni made a monkey.

I named mine Izzy!

Here are their pom-pom butts.

Did you know that TAC makes sock monkey stamps? I might just have to pick these up now that I have fallen in love with these cute and cuddly guys!

Thanks Kim for a GREAT day!!!!

Simple Thanks!

I needed to whip up a bunch of thank you cards. These were easy, simple, and fast. I used the paper strip from a recent workshop and then added a dotted line with the scor-bug and my scor-pal. The inner scallop is from a new stamp set called Awesome Blossoms. I then mounted that on a scalloped circle. I added a half circle of the patterned paper and added the sentiment from English Cuties.

Fun, simple, and Easy!
