Valentine treats!

I had the idea to make some treat containers for a few friends of mine.  And, guess what???  When I checked out the Just Us Girls challenge this morning ~ well...the challenge is to create a 3-D Valentine treat container.  SO, I made 4!
I found a link to this treat cone template on Andrea's blog (thank you!)
If you're interested in this free template HERE is the link.

Check out all of the details for the JUGS #68 3-D Template Challenge.
Here is the set of Valentine treat cones that I created.  Remember, just click on any photo to see a larger version.
And, pics of each cone.

Actually, I was way out of my comfort zone working a template.  I absolutely LOVE creating cards.  I also enjoy creating photo/stamped collages.  But put a template in my's a challenge.  I know.  This is a simple template.  Still.........

Anyway, thank you to the team over at JUGS for CHALLENGING me!
