Sweet Treat Thursday & Contest! -- Cute 'n Cubby & Chocolate?!

Sweet Treat Thursdays are all about food -- our other favorite topic -- and features ways to embellish/wrap/present something edible. CAUTION: May be hazardous to your waistline!


Hi everyone,

Oooh, I'm having so much fun finding all kinds of different uses for the Cute 'n Cubby! It was only natural that I turned to my big love for CHOCOLATE!!! Check this out:

I'm lucky enough to have a Lindt factory outlet near my house (or is that a bad thing?!). Anyways, I went "grocery shopping" and came across those cute little chocolate sticks. They just called to me -- I couldn't resist!

They fit perfectly well in the pockets of the Cute 'n Cubby and makes a very fun way to give to a friend in need of a picker-upper!

The flower in the middle was made with the following punches (all from Stampin' Up! - click here to order):
  • Two-Step Bird Extra-Large (#117191)
  • Fancy Flower Extra-Large (#118073)
  • 1-1/4" Circle Large (#119861)
  • 1-3/8" Circle Large (#119860)
  • Scallop Square Bigz Clear Die for the Big Shot (#115950) -- for the Cute 'n Cubby
  • Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (#113439)
I used Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise and Whisper White cardstock for the flower and the leaves are Old Olive.

The top of the flower was made so that it swivels to reveal a tiny handwritten message inside. Simple and fun! Only one brad is functional, for the swivel action; the rest are decorative and go through the white circle only.

HEY .....?!
