Paper Pretties Monday

Good Morning and Happy Monday!!  I hope you all had a great weekend, I sure did.  It was laid back, it was crafty, it was filled with good food.  I made baked rigatoni last night - yummy!

This week at Paper Pretties we've got an Anything Goes challenge.  This week I chose to make a little treat holder that was on a tutorial by ChicnScratch.  Now my sample is missing the treat that goes in because when I decided to make this it was 11:00 at night and wasn't going to the store, so you'll just have to use your imagination that it's there.  Mine will eventually hold a Ghiradelli chocolate.

So here's the front of it.  This will hold a couple of chocolate squares.  I created by first printing off digi paper.  I used All Wrapped Up that I found at A Cherry On Top.  I printed the red and then I put it back in my printer to print the red polka dots.  Then cut it down to 8" square.  Then using my Scor-Pal I did the score lines and then folded.  This is such a super easy project and would be easy to make a bunch of these.

This is the other side and here's where you can either put more treats or as I did, a little greeting.  I didn't picture it here, but the little message does have a bit of design interest.  I used a snowflake border punch on the white card stock and then adhered it to the red.  There's plenty of room for a personal message.

I hope you join us this week and really challenge yourself.  Not that this was challenging - it was fun and easy.
