Finally a chance to do some crafting, I have missed it so much while I have been away and I managed to fit a little bit in today inbetween packing up to move house at the weekend. I just had to try out my new stuff from the Blooms & Bliss Suite – The Blooms & Bliss DSP and the Blooms & Wishes stamp set and I wasn’t disappointed with either.

I chose two of the colours from the suite, Island Indigo and Sweet Sugarplum for my card colours and picked out the best papers to go with these, I hope you like my choices. I made the Island Indigo one first to check for measurements and design etc, then when I was happy with that I photographed the process of making the Sweet Sugarplum treat holder.

Instructions

Place your DSP with end with 2 thin strips to the right and add glue to the one nearest the end. Glue together to form a sleeve.

Place this sleeve over your card and treat, It will be a snug fit.

Cut a v shape out of both ends of DSP and cut a length of sequins about 2 3/4″ long.

Stamp a piece of Whisper White card, I used the Blooms & Wishes stamp set. The ‘for you’ is stamped in Rich Razzleberry and the flowers are in Sweet Sugarplum which I stamped off on some scrap first. For the Island Indigo version I used the Island Indigo for the sentiment and Mint Macaron for the flowers.

Add some adhesive to the back of the DSP and glue it to the front of your treat holder. Add some fuse or strong adhesive to the middle of the DSP and carefully place your sequins over it.

Add a 5″ piece of ribbon through the tag slot and trim the edges diagonally. Cut a piece of bakers twine aprox 9″ long, tie around the ribbon and make a bow, trim ends as required.

I used Whisper White 5/8″ organza ribbon, and Whisper White thick bakers twine.

Cut out your stamped image with a 1 3/4″ Circle punch and distress the edges with the same colour as the sentiment. Place 2 dimensionals as shown and place your punched circle on to these, this makes it easier to place correctly.

Add a few Rhinestone basic jewels and its finished. This photo shows how the sleeve looks finished and gives a better idea of how it all looks and goes together.

Here are a few different images of the finished project, as you can see I have a few more chocolates to make holders for. What a good excuse for me to try out some more of the designs from my new Blooms & Bliss paper pack 🙂
