Tart & Tangy favors

Oh my! Spring has made it to Central Ohio! The trees have started budding, the daffodils at the front of our subdivision are getting ready to BUST out and bloom! I'll have to make sure to take pictures this year...there are so many and they are gorgeous! Temps today were in the low 70s and tomorrow is supposed to be nice, too. Then we are in for some rain and cooler temps again thru the weekend. At least we've had a hint!

I made these favors for my Tart & Tangy Stamp Camp participants last weekend . They were a HIT! They are fairly small, I started with a 6x6 size sheet of Summer Picnic Designer Paper and then folded them into the pocket shape. I filled the small cello pages with Starburst fruit chews, tied them with our wonderful Striped Ribbon and they pretty much followed the same fruit flavors as the stamp set (cherry, orange, lemon)! Fun! My group had a fun time doing our projects, too. Don't want to show them yet...I still have another Camp scheduled at the end of this month doing the same projects! I love this paper and the bright colors you use with the Tart & Tangy stamp set. It really lifts my spirits. The circle punches and Scallop punch are just a PERFECT fit, too. (Stampin' Up! is finally getting caught up with the backorders on these...the last of mine just went out today!)

Come back tomorrow! I finally took some pictures of my Stamp Studio and the new shelving my hubby made me for Christmas! Hopefully they will give you some ideas for organizing your space.

These little treats are just adorable. I would love to make them for my next stamp club meeting. Can you give me directions on the fold or tell me where I can go to find the directions! I love them. Great job!
