This is my first week as a Tiddly Inker and I'm so excited to share my project with you. But first, make sure to participate this week in the challenge at the Tiddly Ink Challenge Blog - it's a perfect one for this time of year. You have to create something that holds candy, be it box, bag, or anything else to put candy in. Make sure to use a Tiddly Ink image to win the prize. Christy is awesome enough to give freebies to if you are a member of Paper Craft Planet and she has a few freebies here!
Now, on to my project. I wanted to make my daughter's teacher a little candy holder for her birthday that's at the end of this month. She mentioned to the class that she LOVES chocolate. I got her a bag of Lindt's Chocolate Truffles in the blue bag - oh yum!
Chesire Cat, Alice (Time For Tea) and The Mad Hatter (Mad For You). I used my Copics to color the images and fussy cut them.
I set them aside and measured my candy bag. You can do this for any bag, I made the width of my paper at 1/2 inch larger then the candy bag itself. I cut two strips at that width from the paper. I adhered them together and made score marks where the paper would fit right around the seems of the bag. Then, I simply adhered using my ATG in the appropriate places. Once the paper was around the bag, I punched two holes straight through and ran three matching ribbons through and tied a bow. I also cut out one of the cards from the paper and mounted it on black card stock. On the back I placed a small sheet for a sentiment and wrote - What goes better with tea than chocolate and ran my ribbon through. I LOVE how this project turned out. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving comments - I so appreciate them! Don't forget to stop by the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog and play along!!
