Since I used Little Friends as my Preview Week Card Set selection, here's the little favor that I came up with!



And…want to see the inside and what it holds?



How about a trio of Andes Candies???  (I couldn't believe I still had some Peppermint Bark ones left from Christmas!)  Wouldn't this be a nice treat for a special friend?  I think it is so cute!  And very easy to make!


  1. 3 x 7 1/2 Summer Starfruit, score at 2 7/8, 3 1/4 and 3 5/8", fold to make a W at the bottom.  The front will be shorter than the back.
  2. Cut a 2 5/8 x 2 3/4" piece of Print Poetry Designer Paper to cover the front.
  3. Wrap Gumball Green Stitched Ribbon around and tie a knot on the front.
  4. Cut a 3" Circle of Whisper White from Bigz Die, stamp little girls image from Little Friends in Black Stazon.  Watercolor with AquaPainter and Stampin' Write Markers.
  5. Cut a Gumball Green Scallop Circle from the Scallop Circle Duo Die.  Adhere behind the Whisper White circle.
  6. Add a row of Stampin' Dimensionals on the inside of the back flap, along the top.  Add the Scallop Circle element to it.  (Make sure that front flap can fit up under the Scallop Circle easily.
  7. Stamp Hello Friend with Black Stazon on scrap Summer Starfruit, punch with Modern Label Punch.

That's it!  Add the candies in the center as you wish!  Cute little gift to give away to a special friend!

Sweet!  I love making little treat holders.  I can't wait to try this out though I don't have that set I will just have to make do with something else.  Thanks for the inspiration and directions!  Of course yours is so cute with the coloring and all the matching paper and ribbon.  I think I am going to have to splurge and sign up for this class….it looks like so much fun!  Happy Easter
