ABAC - Candy Holder & Book Mark

IMG_2010

Good Sunday morning, peeps!

Hope the day is treating you well so far! Today, I've got an Anything But a Card project to show you for my post at PaperWorks Company.

It's a candy holder and bookmark all rolled into one! I saw Ashley's project and wanted to 'taglift' (is that the right word?) and make my own version. Isn't it cute? It's so easy to make too! Thanks, Ashley!

In the back of my mind, I worry about how the card-making and scrapping industries are affecting our trees, our Mother Earth. I always think to myself that most people will value their cards, their scrapbooks, and that my friends will not throw away my creations. But who are we kidding? Some do get trashed.

But there's a light that begins to flicker in that corner of my mind when I see people upcycling or making two-in-one gifts like these. I hope our loved ones continue to cherish our momentos, our memories, and our hard work. And that the tree that once was has reincarnated into beautiful patterned paper that we all will always treasure.

Okay, enough corniness already!!!! Buwahahaha!

Supplies:
Stamp- PWCO's Safari Friends- Zoie the Zebra.
CS- American Craft, Neenah.
PP- Authentique.
Misc- Ribbon, Tim Holtz mini attacher, Martha Stewart punch, Candy, Button, Twine, Copics.

toot-a-loo!
