March Administration Appreciation Cards -PP

Punch-out's from a Hot of the Press Card maker's Kit I had in my stash. I popped it up and placed ribbons underneath.

Matted the flowered paper with white cardstock and edge distress and inked around all pieces. Stamped "Thank You" using CTMH D1703 Nature's Wish stamp set. Inked edges and added some scrap burlap pieces I had.

Adminastration Apresation Treat Holder - PP

I made a Treat Holder for one of the Admins in the group, because she had accidentally sent me a treat holder thinking I was her partner for a swap back around Christmas time. She told me just to keep it and she will make another one for the right partner. I have been wanting to make one for her in return.

I made little coin pockets, the edges had a tiny tab that were glued down. Then I placed crafting clips (Dollar tree has these by their crafts) to make sure they held. Left them overnight and then applied glue to the center of each pocket.

  The treats I filled the pockets with!

I wanted the pattern to wrap around the top of the holder. Finished Holder.
