SARAH KAY TREAT YOURSELF


This is a rather late posting for me for Sarah Kay's Challenge - Week 16 "Treat Yourself". My treat to myself is probably like everyone else "Chocolate". I bought two of my favoutite chocolates, and just took their top wrappers off. I then used the wrappers as templates, and cut two different backing papers to re-cover the Choccies, and tied ribbons around them. I then used two Sarah Kay images, coloured them in with my WC brushes, and cut and layered them, using my Oval and Scalloped Oval Nesties. I punched brads through the tops. and tied them up with Organza ribbon, and made bows on each. To finish the "Treats" off, I stamped a sentiment, and also the same cardstock as the images to layer them, and placed a brad through the centre. Now that I have made them look all pretty, I can can un-wrap them, and eat them!
Thanks for stopping by, and Happy Crafting X

What a REALLY clever idea - think I'll be pinching that as it will be lovely for stocking fillers. Great use of the nesties. Lol Lynn x
