Katie will be making candy holders like these to hand out in class. You can get 4 holders from one sheet of 12×12 patterned paper, a great way to use unwanted or duplicate sheets of paper.

Check out the step by step tutorial offered in my etsy shop: Candy Holder Tutorial.

I also made a few cards with the scraps from some layouts:



How are you doing on your Resolutions and Page Goals? It's been raining here in California and crafts are always great rainy day activities. How about digging into your scraps to create some fun gifts for Valentine's Day? Hope you're getting some scrapping done and feeling great about it!

Happy Scrapping!
