Good morning everyone!!! Today is week#2 of the Sweet & Yummy linky party challenge over at Craftin' Desert Divas. I have been wanting to try to make a candy holder with the Fancy Frame dies for some time. Took a couple of tries but I finally got one that I was happy with.
I used the Fancy Frame dies to make the base and the front pocket. I scored the what would be the front pocket piece and taped it to the base and put some tape along the sides only. That created the pocket. Then I took the rectangle die from the set and adjusted it to the size I needed. I also cut out the top note looking die to add under the photo. The adorable snail came from the Sweet Wishes stamp set. This is a smaller 2x3 stamp set. CDD does carry a few of those stamp sets in that size. It is a great way to get a bunch of different images at a great price! The paper I used is also available at CDD. It is Doodlebug's Sugar Shoppe paper pad. The patterns were perfect for this challenge.
This is a great way to make a super cute but cheap gift. They are also very easy to mass produce. The dies do all the work!
I hope you play along with our "Sweet & Yummy" challenge over at Craftin' Desert Divas!
