Oh what fun! I'm writing this post a few days in advance, so that it can go up while I'm spending a Saturday with my stamping buddies. A few times a year we try (and sometime succeed!) in getting the 5 of us together at my home on a Saturday to spend the day stamping, talking, snacking...well, you get the picture. :)
These gatherings bring me so much joy! Well, today the 5 of us are blessed to have another friend joining us. I decided to put together a little treat box for each of my friends, just because they're so important to me.
I found a template HERE on Nichole Heady's blog, for something very easy to create and so versatile.
Nichole created her own pattern on blank cardstock, but I chose to use some thick patterned paper from Tim Holtz. After cutting out each box, I added a little machine stitching around the edges.
Here's what I created.
Inside each box I put a few Godiva chocolates (because every stamper *needs* chocolate, you know) and a piece of toile wrapped around various embellishments and tied with a piece of that Stampin Up gold thread.
I hope my friends enjoy these treats as much as I enjoyed making them. We'll see!
