Use Your Imagination




Yes, I'm asking you to use your imagination a little today. Why? Because this is a CARAMEL APPLE GIFT KIT. "But I only see an apple", you say. Well, that's where the imagination comes in. IMAGINE you see a craft stick and a bunch of caramel candies in there too. I don't keep junk food in the house, and it is my policy not to buy junk food just for craft projects. Because you know where that will lead, right? Although a caramel apple wouldn't be that bad of a treat.

Soooooo
, I used today Storage Units, Ink Whatchadoin' Wednesday sketch challenge as my layout for the CARAMEL APPLE KIT topper. The sentiment and images come from the Leaf It to Me set. I added a little zig zag stitching and the brads keep the topper closed and attached to the cellophane bag. The back includes directions for making your CARAMEL APPLE, printed on more of the so saffron designer print paper.

What's In It?
Stamps: Leaf It to Me (SU Ink)
Paper: chocolate chip, vanilla, so saffron prints (SU!); screen door (My Mind's Eye)
Ink: graphite Brilliance, SU! chocolate chip
Accessories: lasting impressions antique brads, sewing machine and brown thread, circle punch, Copic Markers, white gel pen
