Easter Treats

I have decided to make Easter treats for my 2 daughters class rooms this year. I was dying to use the new Petal Cone die and I finally did. Have you seen the cute carrots made with the this die out there in the blogoshere? So... So... So cute!

The treat holders are not complicated because I have to make 50... yikes... what did I get myself into. It will all be worth it in the end when I see those little faces light up.

I am also having a Easter Treat Workshop with some of my stamping friends to make these yummy treats...might as well have some company, right? I still have a few spots available if you live in the Simi Valley, Ca area... send me an e-mail.

Stamps: Four Frames, A Good Egg and Afterthoughts
Ink: Early Espresso and Pumpkin Pie
Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White and Wild Wasabi
Punches: Large Oval Punch, Modern Label and Decorative Label
Die Cut: Petal Cone

I hope you enjoyed my little treats. Wish me luck on getting all 50 done in time.
