Today I bring a fun treat that is super easy to make. I've shared a different one back in December (Christmas theme). This one today features the fun hot air balloons that are in the Occasions catalog and the coordinating paper that is in the Sale-a-bration brochure. I love the hot air balloons. One day I am going to go up in one. Yep, that's certainly on my bucket list. I think it may be a little frightening at first but oh so marvelous after that initial feeling of what the heck am I doing this for. Anyone up for a hot air balloon ride?
You start by covering some little nuggets of chocolate with a 1" x 3" piece of designer series paper. For this one I used two different patterns, but you can use 5 different (one for each chocolate) or use all the same. The choice is yours while the options abound. I then cut a piece of coordinating cardstock (watermelon wonder) to 5" x 2" and score it 1/4" on each of the long sides to make a little "plate" for the chocolate to rest on before placing it in the cello bag. Honestly, these look adorable even without the tag if you needed a super quick and easy little treat/favor for a party.
Just a close up of the tag, so you can see all the fine details. Stamp the clouds all over 3/4 of the tag. Leave the bottom half blank. Cut about 3/4" x 2" piece of gray dotted designer paper and a 1/2" x 2" piece of the little hot air balloon paper for the bottom portion of the tag. Then stamp and use the framelits to cut out the little thank you and notes. The hot air balloon is colored with markers and then cut out with the framelits. The hot air balloon and the thank you are attached with dimensionals. (My favorite)
What type of party do you have coming up that this would be a great little treat for? How about Valentine's day for your friends, family and coworkers. The new designer series paper stack for Valentine's day would be great.
