Cool Treats, day 9

Here’s another “one” sheet wonder that I did.  This is really a two plus sheet wonder but she calls it a one sheet wonder.  Get the directions here.  I didn’t get all of these done before Demos Galore so you get to see them first!

I switched some of the focal paper with other paper because the design wasn’t going the right way.  Also, some of the sentiments needed to be smaller than what Cool Treats had so I pulled out my Endless Birthdays stamp set.  The silver ribbon is a free Sale-a-Bration item, get it while you can.

Cool Treats, day 7

I made this cute little candy purse based on this blog post.  Just like yesterday, I would recommend using brads to hold on the handles because they keep coming off.
