Valentine Treats...

These went together so quickly, I had to share...
Here is what you'll need:
Cardstock (half of an 8 1/2" x ll" sheet, cut vertically), printed paper (3" x 11"), quarter pound cello bags, a 2 1/2" scalloped circle punch, candy, a stapler and some ribbon.

Adhere the printed paper to the cardstock like so:
Punch a hole into the piece like this: (be sure it is centered)
Next, turn it over. I wrote the measurements down for you all, but on the inside of mine it is actually blank. Score the card at 4 1/2", 5 1/2" and 10 1/4".
(Sorry for the poor coloring. I didn't set my white balance for indoors--doh!)
Okay, fold over the 3/4" piece, tuck the bag of candy under the fold (as to catch it in the staple) and place the ribbon where you want. Carefully staple together.
Now close it up and tuck the bottom under the stapled part, like a matchbook cover, only upside down. The side will look like this:

Tah da! Hope you enjoy! I made tons for my child's classroom...

Okay, the question of the day...

On what day did I add the Clustermaps over the the top right of the blog?

Have a great night friends!
