Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge #50-Anything Goes!

It's Tuesday!
And you know what that means...
Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge #50 
and this week...
it's Anything Goes!

This week I made a candy bar holder.  I made some of these at Christmas for the ladies at work, and one of them asked me to make one with a Valentine theme.

Wild Card Cartridge, pg. 46
        shift <allinone>, fit to page, which makes the holder 4-1/4" x 7".
K&Co. double sided Valentine designer paper, 12x12
Sweethearts Cartridge
        pg. 52. <foryou> with shadow cut at 2-1/4", and
        pg. 72, Heart blackout and shadow cut at 3-1/4".
Pink paper from same 12x12 pack cut at 6-1/4" x2-7/8"
Embossed with Cuttlebug Heart Blocks
        rounded the bottom corners;
        used Fiskars Heart 3-in-1 corner punch for the upper corners.
Adhesive pink hearts.
Pink Ribbon and bow.

The one thing I do differently is add two score lines at the top--here you see the 2 folds at the top of the candy holder--they're only 1/8" apart (the thinnest using the MS scorboard).  By doing this, the holder will stay closed by slipping the tab into the pre-cut slot.  Otherwise, once you have the candy bar inside the holder, the cover tends to pop open.

This week, Stamping Scrapping is generously sponsoring this challenge, and they are offering a 20.00 gift certificate or any one spellbinders matching stamp set (30.00 value) to the winner!!  You'll have one week to create your project, card, or any craft item and post it at Die Cuttin' Divas.  The Design Team looks forward to seeing what you make!!
