A Candy Holder
I can't believe that Valentine's Day is just under two weeks away!! Better get going on some ideas for those of you (like me) who are not ready for it yet!!! I picked up some of these plastic tubes (shown below) from Stamps & Memories a little while ago, but could never figure out what to do with them. So, I came up with a pattern for a carrier that you can download here.
Cut along the solid lines and fold along the dotted lines. Place double stick tape on all the tabs, except for 3 tabs on the right pattern piece (as shown below):
Below is a picture of the 2 pieces put together. Place the piece on the right (with the cutout hole facing down, and cover closed) on to the piece on the left...matching top edges. Open the cover to slip the tube into the carrier.
Here's another "more traditional" one:
And one for Girl's Day (while I was at it):
I used good old scotch tape to attach a silver cord to the back of my cutout image...then tied a crystal flower to the end of the cord and dangled it from the Girl's Day sentiment.
Before I go, here are a few projects I've seen (out in blogland) using Dandelion Design stamps:
