Good morning! I hope you all are doing wonderful! I know I have been missing for a week now but I am hoping that I can get back into the swing of things soon! I can't believe the amount of homework a 4th grader bring home, let alone how different it is from when I went to school...sigh! Then add in baseball and my hubs work schedule and then add a cold in the mix, carving out some crafting time has been rather challenging!
Anyway, it's What a Treat Wednesday over at My Creative Time with Emma and the design team. This is when we make any sort of 3D treat. My son's birthday was last week. He turned 10, yep double digits now. I wanted to make his birthday gift(s) a tad different and a little extra special this year.
So I couldn't resist pulling out the new Stitched Treat Sleeve and Stitched Belly Band Dies. I thought why not make 10 of these sweet little treats and add a gift card, note, 10 pennies, 10 dimes... you get the hint and a few other things too. I figured he would have 10 little fun things to open with a surprise in each one! Can I tell you how fun it was for him to open these! He loved this idea and thinks he will be getting it every year now!
I wanted to keep these as simple as possible, so I used the balloon from Stitched Party Dies and the numbers from Number Fun Dies +Add Ons. You can't tell in the picture but the blue and green paper is camouflage. I added a little twine to add a little contrasting color to the treats sleeves.
Something super simple but left a big smile on his face!
