Happy Easter! Life has been very hectic working full time and so many crisis at work and raising 3 boys hasn't been easy but I am trying to eek out a little bit of time for stamping which gives me so much joy. For my llittle treat make and take this month I took an 8 81/2x11 sheet - score the entire cardstock along the 8 1/2 inch side at 3 3/4 and 4 3/4 so you create the bottom of the treat so it will stand on its own then cut them into 8 1/2 by 2 inchstrips of paper- so you can make 5 out of each sheet. It is easier to score before you use the topper punch I used the Ornate tag topper punch to make the treat but you can use which ever one you have. Embossed the whole thing with elegant dots EF then used the large oval punch to cut out the window and taped a little piece of Ghiradelli chocolate bunnies inside for a sweet little treat. tied the gold metalilc baker's twine with colored ribbon and stamped Happy Easter from teeny tiny wishes. punched it out with word window. I punched the 1/16 hole on the top - and this was a surprise for everyone- I cut a slit from the outside into the tiny hole vertically so I can slip the tag onto the twine as shown below so you don't have to string it- just slip it on and it holds the tag just fine.
