Tonight's the night!!!!

So, my Stampin Up venture starts tonight!!!!

I'm all tidy, ready and can't wait to start. My first obstacle though is to get the boys into bed early and get them to stay there!!  Although they are very good at bedtime usually, there are a few people coming they haven't seen for ages and it's just a bit different for them to have a houseful on a school night....the temptation may just be too much!!!

Oh well, we'll see.  So, I have to demonstrate something tonight aswell.  I have gone for something easy that looks pretty impressive.  I found this tutorial on a blog using ghirardelli squares(!) so because we don't have such a thing in this country, I've used afer eight mints.

Side view
Could make great favours or name places (! - is that what they are called?)

Open view
They hold 4 after eights in total, I have stuck two together and then stuck them to the paper so that it can stand up...
I have used tangerine tango designer paper, early espresso grosgrain ribbon, antique brads, boho blossom flower punch, all available from SU.

Well, wish me luck!
Thanks for stopping by,
Take care xx


  1. This is a brilliant idea! Lovelymlittle treat bags, and they would make fab table settings!

  2. These are lovely... GOOD LUCK..hope all goes to sure the boys will venture down just for a but once they realize it's boring stuff they will go back to bed


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment, it really makes me smile.
