MFT December Creative Challenge - Ten Minute Treats + a Video

Hi, everyone, thanks for joining me for MFT’s December Creative Challenge – Ten Minute Treats! We’ve all been there…running out the door to a party or event and realizing, eek!, that we need a last-minute gift. Whether it’s for a teacher, party host, or gift exchange with friends, it’s incredibly helpful to have a store of quick gift options stashed away in your repertoire. Join us this month as our team shares some of their ideas for crafting 10 minute treats your recipient will love.

OK, I’ll admit this took a bit longer than 10 minutes. I started off with something quick in mind but it took on a life of it’s own and it grew! That’s my story…

I created a holder for a package of hot cocoa mix—which *is* a quick treat to USE but the container took a tiny bit longer to produce. I didn’t like the look of just adhering the card front to the card base as a pocket because it wasn’t going to be nice and flat once the packet was inserted so I created a holder to eliminate that problem. I show you exactly how I did that with this video. You can see it HERE in HD or simply click on the button below.

I embellished my treat holder with LLD Hug In a Mug stamp set, LLD Hot Cocoa Cups Die-namics, Distressed Patterns, Candy Stripes Background Builder, and Large Grid Stencil. All other supplies are listed below and in the InLinkz list.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you were able to get some ideas for some quick gifts for yourself! See you soon!
