The base of the treat holder was cut from Stampin' Up's Lovely Lilac card stock. I used designer paper from the Basic Grey Wisteria 6 x 6 pad for the decorative panel. The green flower was cut from Stampin' Up's "Always Artichoke" card stock. Using my piercing tool, I punched a hole through the green card stock flower and poked the wire of the wedding flower through the hole and secured using a dimensional dot. The sheer striped ribbon is from Darice's Oh So Trendy line and is threaded through 1/8" holes punched 3/4" apart through the front and back of the box and through the candy treat bag.
Wouldn't this make a beautiful favor for a bridal or baby shower? I will definitely be using this as a favor for one of my meetings coming up this fall and I might even make some of these for craft shows. This would be a great gift for anyone who loves candy.
Now I am picturing this treat holder decorated for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas favors. They would make cute table decorations at each place setting.
Okay, time to start writing these ideas down so I don't forget them. I know it is only the beginning of July, but if I want to have a nice selection of items for the craft shows beginning in September, I need to get started. Last year I was working feverishly getting items ready to sell right up until the craft shows began. This year I want to be able to stay ahead of the game and keep up with inventory.
Along with getting ready for the craft shows, I need to work on gifts for friends and family. I always like to them a home made gift such as: treat boxes, note pads & pens, post-it-note holders, hand sanitizer or chapstick in a home made gift box. Some of these items work perfectly as stocking stuffers.
Off to take stock of the items I have left over from last year, so I can have an idea of what I need to concentrate for this year.
Have a great day everyone and stop by to visit again soon.
