SWEET LIKE CHOCOLATE!!



Good Evening all you lovely crafters out there.
So here we are 1st March with just a glimmer of spring on its way, lets hope so.
Yesterday I spent a lovely day with a very special friend doing a craft class at Sir Stampalot along with eight very lovely ladies from Derbyshire who were so much fun, hope you enjoyed yourselves girls, it was a fantastic atmosphere.
back to the recipe folder... while we were away for a crafty weekend I made this (or one similar) with my good friends Fleur and Nicola.
it was quite easy to make using dinner money envelopes joined together .
the papers are daisy bucket and the strawberries are magnolia.
back soon Chris xx

what a great project. I made a leaving card similar to the recipe holder using the same sort of technique, but i didn't know about the dinner money envelopes - i made all the pockets by hand !! I will remember that tip now ( you can see my project in the december section of my blog - it was one of the first things i posted ) The cupcakes on the front are almost good enough to eat. They look scrummy.

Hi Chris...this looks familiar, I remember the craft weekend when you were making them. It's good to see the finished result. I think I'm going to be making one too.

Yours looks so yummy and scrumptious. I'm sure there are many yummy recipe's that could go in those pockets.
