My Friday was not very productive. After this week, I deserved a day off. Alyssa is now home for Spring Break. We ran a few errands and then went to lunch. That's a great way to spend a day. Tonight I went downtown to a new place in town where you can do Glass Fusing, Pottery, Painting, Jewelry Making, Mosaics. At first I really didn't want to go, but my husband kind of talked me into getting out of the house. I meet my friend Erin, from work. We both did glass fusion and I was glad that I did go. We had a good time getting out for a little while.
The other day, I posted a birthday card using the same papers. Now, here is the treat holder I made to match it.
Inside the tissue are three Lindt truffles. I don't know too many people who can resist these chocolates. On the ends are two different kinds of ribbons that are now retired. I chose two different just for more texture and I had plenty to use.
The Mint Macaron is just rolled around the truffles and adhered with Tear & Tape. The card stock is a little bit stiffer than the DSP. So, first run the card stock over an edge, like the table or counter. It will curl just a little, but it helps break down the fibers in the paper so it rolls better.
The cakes are stamped in Crumb Cake and colored with Blender Pens. On the back side, I did write a short birthday note.
I've seen party favors that are similar to this and it was my inspirition. Believe they are called firecrackers(?). These are just a quick but cute party favor or candy holder.
