Sweet treats

I have been making a few of these sweet treat gifts for my customers this month.
Becky Roberts had these on her blog with instructions. So easy to make using the envelope punch board.Great way to use up scraps from the fresh prints designer paper stack too.

Card in a box

Quite a number of my team have been making these card in the box assemblies. So thought it time I had a go. So here is my version. These are so much fun to make and the beauty of it is that it folds down to fit a normal size envelope.
I have used the Backyard Basic stampset and framelits. The designer paper is from Kaleidoscope.
I will be offering this card in a box as a class at our upcoming retreat in March and classes in April.
Let me know if you are interested in making one.

At our last team meeting (which I was unable to attend ) we all made a square for swaps to make a picture frame. The theme was black, white and red. These are some of the swaps that we received. I have used black and white paper from the Kaleidascope designer pack as the background. Everyone came up with such different squares, Looks great.
Thanks everyone.
