For You


Good morning! Today is February 1 so that means it is time for a Paper Cubed (P3) challenge. This month the challenge is to create something 3D for Valentines, of course. My favorite die right now is the Petal Cone from the Occasions Mini, it is so versatile. I cut three hearts and glued two of them together to form the heart pouch, then I cut the flap off the third one and cut it down the middle. By cutting it in half you can now fit the halves inside an embossing folder (one at a time) and then glued the halves on to the front of the pouch. The medallions are made with Love Letter  and Newsprint DP and held together with an Antique brad. The bow was made with Cherry Cobbler seam binding ribbon. I have made several of these to give as Valentines but I think they would be beautiful as wedding favors too.

Make sure you visit the Paper Cubed blog and see what the rest of the Design Team came up with. They are an amazingly talented group!

While out cruising around in Blog land, I came across a blog called Create with Connie and Mary operated by two very talented ladies.  They are offering an on-line class right now as well as some challengs.  One of the challenges is to make something to be used for a treat and this certainly qualifies for that.  I linked it up to their blog at CCMC-0M1.

This is an adorable little treat holder! Genious to cut the heart in 2 to fit into the embosser, I would have never noticed.
