Mardi Gras Treat Toppers and Matchbook-Notebooks

While I am posting, I may as well show you the Mardi Gras themed gathering projects I have designed for one of my customers in February. My friend Yvonne let me borrow her Legendary Moments stamp set for the Fleur De Lis, it has been gold embossed. The colors are garden grove, honey, and hydrangea. The diamonds are from Argyle Backgrounds and the feathers are from my stash. These little treat holders would be perfect for beads, m&ms, jelly beans or even gold coin candies. A bunch could be made as party favors for any Mardi Gras themed party!! I might make a little 3X3 card to go with it....but I am still thinking about that. Enjoy!

Okay, I have to admit....these aren't the only thing that I have made with this great set! Thanks Yvonne!!!!! It is amazing to see how versatile this stamp set is! I made some really great little notebooks with craft paper for my fellow art teachers. I keep one in my purse for shopping lists. This little notebook has a 'matchbook' closure, created with a simple staple. Very easy and so cute!!
