TCBS D/T ~ Tri-Fold Valentine Treat Card!!

Happy Tues.!

Hi~ya All!

A very happy first Tuesday in February to everyone. It is time for a brand new challenge over at The Cuttlebug Spot. This month we will be creating cards that showcase different styles of folds. There are so many variations of folds, along with different names, your choice of what to call it, lol. Our 1st week we will be showcasing the Tri-Fold card, meaning 3 sections. Our design team has an array of different designs to show you, so make sure you check them out.

For my Tri-fold card, I wanted to do something a little different, since I love to make cute little cards for kids. My card is also a treat holder, which I created using the SU heart cups. I bought these when they first came out last year, and haven't touched them since, bad me!! I also made a clear closure to keep the treats in when you open the card, since I was rushing to get this project finished I did not line the clear holder on the inside, my bag, but you get the general idea.

These are perfect to make for the kids for Valentine's day, or for you to pass out to friends. I would love to see your creations on The Cuttlebug Spot, show me what you got!

Have a great Wednesday, catch me on Chat tomorrow!

I need to have you tell me how you did the cover for the back of your sweet cup.. I had a horrible time trying to do a cover when I made mine.

Lillie, this is just superb. I love how the little hearts ar contained. I am just getting by to say hello, been sewing like a mad woman trying to get some of the quilts finished. The gals are coming up from Tucson on Friday so I will be sitting in on our annual card making marathon. How fun it would be if you were too.
