Dawn Mercedes & Dorcas Share Some Treats & A Tip ♥

Chews to treat your kids, husbands, coworkers...
with a little bit of your handiwork.
I created a couple of gum holders for my kids with inspirational messages.
Today, as I was scheduling this post, my son called and needed me to bring up his gym clothes...
despite the number of times I said "Are you sure you have your gym clothes?"
Such is the life of a mother...
and I wouldn't trade it for the world!

Easy Peasy...extra large nestie.
You could also cut out a shape from your electronic cutter.
Two folds make it into a "book."
Cut two slits in the binding to "hold the gum in" using Lovebug Ribbon.
Here I used the new color, Phyllis from the new Oh, Cecelia Collect.
It's pretty close to the color Sunset.
I also used Removeable Glue Dots © to secure the gum.

Then decorate the top...and the inside back has plenty of room for you to write a sweet note!
Thanks for checking out the blog today.

And now for Dorcas' Project....
I'm here to share a cute card using Caddy Blue Rumple Ribbon. I love this color...this one is my favorite one (together with lemonade). I used a trick to iron out my rumple ribbon - I used my flat iron (yes, the one I use on my very curly hair). It worked like a charm. Please be sure to visit my Crafty Card Angel blog to get more details on the supplies I used.
