Everyone loves a little treat

Have you ever seen a messier more jacked up post than yesterday's?? Man, I was seriously having a BAD time! Glad it's over!! Happy FRIDAY everyone!! It's been soooo stressful at my day job that I was thinking (more like wishful thinking) that yesterday was Friday! As I was about to go to sleep Wednesday night I thought, "Oh no, I have to change tomorrow's blog post!" See, I made a card for Paulina Nakamura's 10 minute card challenge and I wanted to post it for Friday so I could enter the challenge without having to wait till Monday. I jumped out of bed, took a picture of my card, edited it, unscheduled Friday's post, wrote a whole new post for the challenge card and since it was after midnight by then...just published the post and linked my little 8 minute 43 second creation. A few hours later (4hrs to be exact) when I had to get up for work, it dawned on me that I'm an I.D.I.O.T! Today is Thursday....sigh. All that for nothing!! Well, crap happens...right? :S   On with the "real" Friday post...that was rescheduled at 5:30am Thursday morning so I wouldn't forget, lol!

Not so long ago I made up some treat boxes that I received as a little bonus in a DeNami haul (Don't ya just love that sometimes they do that?!) and how I used nothing but scraps to make them. Well, I was on a roll so I thought I'd make up a few more!

For the 2 petit four boxes I simply punched a few squares and a circle with my Marvy scallop punches, made something like I would for a focal point on a card then adhered it to the little box. Did you notice all the bling on the "gift" treat box...I puffy heart glitter and DeNami's onyx glitter is FAB! I can't remember which blue I used, but I'm pretty sure it's Misty Blue.

I also pulled out some glassine bags to play with...
These little bags are so versatile! Most of the time I attach them to the inside of a card with my ATG and stick cash or a gift card in them. These are just a touch bigger that credit card size. For the fishing chickie bag I just made and attached panels, like a little mini card. For the butterflies I stamped directly on the bag using Staz-on ink. I stamped the butterflies on white cardstock, colored and fussy cut them out then adhered them randomly to the bag with a little craft glue.

I hope I gave you a little inspiration to try a few for yourself. They are sooo easy peasy and fun to create! There's a large selection of boxes and bags under the "accessories link" on the DeNami web site.  Let me know if you create some of your own, I'd love to see them!

Have a great weekend everyone, I know I will, I'm going to the stamp show in Collinsville, IL, it's just a few minutes away from St. Louis, MO! I can't wait to meet some of the DeNami family and I'm sure I'll probably start hyperventilating when I see all the stamps! I promise to take pictures for ya'll! I'll see ya back here Monday morning!
Hope I didn't forget anything on my product list!
