Sweet Treats To Go

Finally!!  I've been procrastinating for a couple of weeks with the ideas for this month's workshop 'in my head,' and I finally created the samples.  At the "Sweet Treats To Go" workshop, you will create three different projects - each project can hold a 'sweet treat' for you to share with someone.  You will actually create two of each project, so that you can keep one for a sample and still have one to share with a friend.

This cute box has a window in the lid to show off a single cupcake which is held in place with a small platform.  Sorry, a cupcake is not included.  Papers used are from the new Topstich kit introduced in the Spring 2010 CTMH Idea Book.  The adorable 'cupcakes on a pedestal' stamp image is from Piece of Cake, which is the February stamp-of-the-month from Close To My Heart.  The cupcake boxes are really fun to create, you can see another sample on my Cute Cupcake Box blog post.

Everyone needs a little chocolate sometime.  Create a box specially designed to hold three Ghirardelli chocolate squares using papers from the Caboodle kit along with the Be Happy stamp set. 

To say 'thanks' to someone who has been a real 'life saver' to you, give them one of these matchbook-style holders with a pair of life saver candies.  The stamp images are also from the Be Happy stamp set, and the fun striped paper is from the Daydream kit.

The "Sweet Treats To Go" workshop will be offered on Friday evening, January 29 (starting at 7 pm) and also Saturday afternoon, January 30 (at 1 pm).  Whichever day you choose to attend, the projects will be the same. The $15 workshop fee includes 2 of each of the 3 projects. All supplies are included, except adhesive.  Everyone needs to bring their own adhesive, and a dry 'tape runner' type (i.e. Tombow, ATG) is better for these projects than a wet glue.

Please let me know if you would like to attend one of the"Sweet Treats To Go" workshops. Feel free to leave me a comment on this blog, send an email to, or call 913-485-4355.
