Hi there! I'm Darla and I live in BEAUTIFUL Northern California! I am a mother of seven terrific kids and have been married to my husband for 30 years. I have been a Stampin' Up Demonstrator since 2010 and love ALL THINGS paper crafting. I also have a scrapbooking retreat business called Scrap Happens Retreats. I love teaching and learning new techniques, sharing ideas, hosting my retreats, being a wife and a mom. Hiking, bicycling, gardening and cooking are a few of my other hobbies. I'm living for Jesus and LOVIN' LIFE!!
I hope you are enjoying the FOURTEEN DAYS of LOVE projects! I am certain you are going to LOVE today's goodie...both the bag...AND the candy! This project is the easiest, quickest one so far, but is adorable! The best thing about it is that you can make six bags with one piece of designer paper. Here's how....cut a piece of designer paper 4x6. Score the 4 inch side at 1 inch. Turn and score the 6 inch side at 1, 2 3/4, 3 3/4 and 5 1/2 inch marks. On the 6 inch side, cut the score line up to the 1 inch score line. Cut the tiny rectangle at the end completely off. Fold on the score lines and adhere...punch two holes at the top to tie your ribbon, but first add your candy. I added three pieces of Dove chocolate hearts, but it will hold four. I stamped the You Make Me Happy sentiment (from the Perfect Pennants stamp set) with VersaMark on Strawberry Slush cardstock and embossed with white embossing powder. I attached it to the ribbon with a silver safety pin from the Vintage Trinkets embellishments! Another sweet project completed and it took less than ten minutes...and part of that time was spent deciding which stamp to use! Try it today! BE CREATIVE and HAVE FUN!!!
