Hello everyone! Welcome to 2012 :) Let's start the New Year off right . . . today is "3-D Wednesday" at My Creative Time. The idea is to make a treat box or treat holder or any other 3-D project. And my assignment was to showcase the 100% Sweetness stamp set.
Since we are getting close to Valentine's Day, I thought I would also incorporate some chocolate . . . yummy!
The super cute cone treat holders are cut from the Tie the Knot ~ Cricut cartridge. Inside the treat cones are yummy Hershey's Kisses. (I won't tell you how many I ate while trying to take these photos . . . they kept spilling out everywhere . . . lol).
The plain white cardstock for this treat cone is Recollections. The fun heart ribbon is from Celebrate It ~ Valentine. In the center of the bow, I used the starburst die from the My Creative Time ~ Build A Banner Kit. And in the center I stamped the "Kiss Me" sentiment from the My Creative Time ~ 100% Sweetness stamp set. The pink cardstock is from Recollections.
At the top of the treat cone, I used the "Hugs & Kisses" heart stamps from the My Creative Time ~ 100% Sweetness stamp set. Aren't they so cute???? The ink is Technique Tuesday ~ black & red ink.
The red polka dot patterned paper for this treat cone is from Doodlebug Design ~ Petite Prints. The beautiful ribbon is from Celebrate It ~ Valentine.
In the center of the bow, I used the starburst die again from the My Creative Time ~ Build A Banner Kit. And I stamped the "Be Mine" sentiment from the My Creative Time ~ 100% Sweetness stamp set. I used Versamark ~ Watermark Ink and white ~ Stampendous Embossing Powder. The black cardstock is from Recollections.
One little tip when assembling your treat cones - I would make sure and use a hot glue gun for your adhesive. It needs to be a good strong stick. Also, if you plan to make a few of these for Valentine's Day treats, I might also suggest attaching a handle from the top, maybe with pipe cleaners. I didn't do that for these, because the chocolate kisses were a little too heavy and I didn't want the cardstock to rip. But if you used candy hearts or some other small candy, I think a handle would be great . . . they are impossible to stand on their own (hence the reason I had to eat so many of the run away kisses every time they tipped over LOL).
Well that's it for today my crafty friends. Make sure you check out all the other 3-D creations from my fellow My Creative Time ~ Design Team members.
