Paper Fortune Cookies

Chinese paper fortune cookies!  I dared to dream the impossible :) lol!  I found a recipe to make paper fortune cookies but I wanted to turn one into a special treat.  A cookie within a cookie!  These little cookies can be used for a variety of things.  To gift money, secret message, or an invite to a birthday party.  We're actually using this same idea to invite my daughter's guest to a Chinese themed birthday later this month.  These are very easy to make.  Use your favorite color of paper cut out a circle, tape, pinch and walla instant cookie!

Owl Bookmark

In one of our recent classes we made these fun owl bookmarks out of colored paper clips.
The kids had so much fun.  These would make a great gift for any book lover or even party favors.  Supplies used - Stampin Up Owl punch, a variety of scrap paper, google eyes, foam tape, and colorful paper clips.

Valentine Candle Stamping

I love using stamps on a variety of things.  One of my favorite is stamping on candles.  It looks so neat and is sooo easy. :)

1. Stamp on white tissue paper.
2. Color and trim around your image.
3. Place trimmed image on candle.
4. Place wax paper over image and press onto the candle.
5. Use heating tool on wax paper to melt the tissue paper image underneath to candle.
6. Step back oooh and ahhh over your creation :)

Strawberry Treat Holders

Strawberries & Basket - so cute they look good enough to eat!  Well actually the strawberry is a candy holder!  I made these from using a strawberry & basket svg cut file, the Sure Cuts A Lot program, and my Cricut. Scallop oval punches are Stampin Up.  Friends stamp was a cheap find at Michael's.
Filled with conversation hearts for a Valentine treat. :)
