A tutorial, a treat, and a giveaway!

Happy Thursday everyone!
I am so excited that the weekend is upon us - our kiddos have Monday and Tuesday off so it will be well spent relaxing and enjoying their company. :)
Today is a fun post as I did a tutorial on A Crafty Little Place blog using DCRU's wonderful products. It's the easiest and quickest little pocket treat holder:



This is a great project for a quick hostess or teacher's gift, for little treats as well as gift cards (tucked behind the peppermints), or even as birthday party favors. It's so simple that the kids can make these themselves for a craft. As you can see, tea bags fit perfectly into a 6x6 size. Follow the same directions to create 8x8 treat holders to accommodate hot chocolate packets and bigger snacks.

You can find all these wonderful 6x6 papers HERE at DCRU with the most amazing prices.


For really simple directions, click HERE to hop over to ACLP's blog. But WAIT! What's the giveaway? Well I'd LOVE to see if you all decide to try this fun project so I am adding Mr. Blue Frog here for you to link up your work! It doesn't have to be on your blog, you can link me to an online gallery if you prefer. I will send the winner a $5 gift card to Starbucks to celebrate the cooler weather. Or if you are overseas, I will happily do an online gc to your favorite store for the same amount!
So come on and show me what you've made, I will keep this open until November 7th when Daylight Savings ends and we'll really need a cup of coffee to stay awake. ;) Have fun everyone!
