Peachy Keen Challenge Day

Hello hello my crafty friends, I'm so sorry I haven't posted very much this week.. I've been a little busy (okay really busy) taking care of sick kiddos all week, but fingers crossed everyone is on the mend.. So, I am so happy to share my project for the new Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge with you all today!!! This weeks challenge is to create ANY project of your choice using an empty toilet paper roll. If you need some inspiration you should totally head over to the Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge Blog to checkout all the amazing projects my design team sister created..

Okay, with my empty toilet paper roll I decided to create a Valentine treat holder.. I used Peachy Keen's new February Stamp Kit of the Month and the super cute "Cupid's Sting" stamp set.. All the shapes I used to make my adorable little bee were cut with my Cricut(E2).. This treat holder was so fun and easy to make.. I can see my self make more of them for sure :0)

I used tissue paper on the end so they would be easy to open..

Supplies I used:

*Empty Toilet Paper Roll
*PKSC-02 Peachy Keen Stamp Club- 6 month SUBSCRIPTION (Peachy Keen )
*PK-295 Cupid's Sting
( Peachy Keen)
*Just a Note (hearts)
*Cricut Essentials (Circles & Label)
*D'vine Swirls (Cuttlebug embossing folder)
*Scalloped Border Punch (Fiskers)
*White Pen
*Markers (black, light pink, & yellow)
*Tissue Paper
*Hot Glue Gun

This HoneyBee likes your Valentine treat holder Bee. Fun way to use a toilet paper roll for a treat holder. I knew I was saving the toilet paper rolls for something so I'll be scraplifting your wonderful idea.
