Hi friends! Today I have lots of fun projects to make!
I love to make crafted treats and favors. I love combining scraps of paper with a little sweet or gift to brighten someones day.
I also love non candy treats too. I don’t have much of a sweet tooth myself but I am a big fan of lip balms and hand creams (I keep one in every coat pocket, in my car on my desk and next to each sink) probably because I need to constantly combat the dry Maine winter LOL! So of course I love to gift lip balms and stuff like that too. I think they are wonderful gifts year round from stocking suffers, to classroom valentines, Easter Basket fillers and bridesmaid favors. Just change up the paper and you have a treat for many occasions!
One year at a craft fair I made little paper purses with lip balms inside and I sold out in the first 10 minutes and got a special order for 20 more! I am going to make sure to have some of these on hand for my next craft fair! They are so lovely and quick to make! Do you want the instructions for these sweet treats and the whimsical interactive swing card? Well, watch the video and see how to make them!

I think these projects are perfect for the first day of s! The store have all of their seasonal pastel candy on display there is something so beautiful about the sparkly foil wrappers and translucent jelly beans that make me smile. I just love the colors of spring and the signal that the long cold winter is finally coming to an end. Maybe it’s a temperate climate thing. I hope you apply some of these ideas to your next stamping project and as always happy crafting!
