Tiny treats

How flippin' cute are these little guys? I found the instructions on Mary Fish's blog. I didn't have some of the punches she used so I figured out how to make them work with what I had. One little Hershey's egg fits inside each box. The box is made by punching out four of the Petal Card punches and taping them together.

Stampin' Up! Regional event

Last weekend I went to the SU! Regional event in Minneapolis with my friend Kathleen. It was an awesome time. It's great to go to one of these every once in awhile and get inspired to try new things. At a regional event we get speeches, demonstrations, lunch, a free stamp set, free gifts and we get a make and take packet. This banner was one of the make and takes. It is by far my favorite one of the day. We used our free stamp set Nature Walk and tons of other neat little things. I will post the other make and takes in the next few days.
