Easter tag candy holder

Ahhhh, Spring is finally in the air!
It's supposed be in the 70's this week, close to 80, YAY!

I decided I wanted to make an Easter tag candy holder with the sweet little bunny die by Sizzix for Alterations. It comes with the bunny and the bow, cute, huh?
I had fun dressing him in his bunny Sparkly Fluff, Cotton Candy, Distress Stickles and a pom-pom tail. I attached him to a mini rosette.
To make the tag holder, I used a 8x4" manilla tag, scored it at 5 and 5 1/2", covered it with paper from the Vintage Shabby Paper Stack. I cut some paper lace with my Vintage Lace die and attached it to the front of the tag with about 3" hanging off each side. I folded it around to the back of the tag and stapled it to the back with my tiny attacher. This way it holds the front of the tag in place and open so the candy will go inside.
I used an office supply tag to stamp the sentiment on, it's from the Crafty Secrets Happy Easter stamp set.
Look at the white chocolate bunny with the pink bow, just perfect for my tag holder!
Well, that's it! I hope I've inspired you just a little today to make a candy tag holder of your own!
Have a great day!

Crafty Secrets Valentine Kit

Hello friends!
I've got some Craft Secrets to show you today. Everything is printed from the Crafty Secrets Valentine Kit., the card box, card, cupcake wrappers and cupcake picks.
I had fun with this set, isn't the little girl sweet? I found this bouquet of heart lollipops at Walmart for $1, I knew they would be perfect for this card and to use on the cupcakes. I punched the holes in the card to slip the sucker through. I don't have the long reach Crop-a-dile, so I used my awl to make the holes where I wanted them.
This is the card box. You print it on white cardstock, cut it out and its ready to use, so simple. I cut out the cupcake image and put red Damask vintage glass glitter around the heart. I adhered the cupcake with foam squares and made a bow with Martha Stewart ribbon and a vintage button. 

This is the back of the box,  I used a rosette for the closure and a velcro circle. The center of the mini rosette has Cotton Candy Sparkly Fluff on it.
This Valentine Kit would be cute for a little girls birthday party too, the invitations, everything you need for a party! You don't have to add the sucker, just print, score and fold the card, simple.
The back of the card.
The inside. I cut out the heart image to cover the holes and stick.

Another little image for the cupcake pick.
There is so many images in this kit, they are so vintage and so fun!
We are supposed to have some winter weather moving in tonight. If we are going to have snow I wish we would have a bunch of it, 12-18", I don't want to mess around, LOL!
Y'all have a great day, and a lovely Valentines Day,  thanks for stopping by!
