Newton's Nooks Designs' Sweet Treats Blog Hop


Hello everyone!  Welcome to the 2015 Newton's Nook Designs' Sweet Treats Blog Hop!  Jen thought it would be fun to inspire you all with some homemade treat holders featuring her adorably illustrated stamps just in time to whip up some Valentine's Day Treats!

Since I LOVE making treat holders, I have created a variety of styles for your viewing pleasure today.  The first, one of my favorites, the Ghirardelli box  - perfectly designed to hold 3 decadent Ghirardelli chocolate squares:


I stamped and cut out the wagon from NND's Wagon of Wishes set


and loaded it up with lot punched hearts in assorted shapes & sizes with a few teenie heart-shaped sequins thrown in for a touch of shine and added the 'loads of' sentiment on the outside and 'love' from the NND Flirty Flamingo's set on the inside.

For my second treat holder, I went with the tried and true mini pizza box  - which is perfect for holding treats of all shapes & sizes:


This cute little raccoon from NND's Sweetheart Tails


hides lots of Lindor truffle hearts inside with 'You stole my heart' stamped on the rim (thought it was cute that the candies were shaped like hearts for this sentiment).

My last creation was made with folks who might think non-candy treats are far more sweet - people who are diabetic perhaps, etc.  I made a pencil holder using some pencils from a cute Valentine themed $1 pack and the cute owl from Sweetheart Tails as well.


The sleeve also holds 8 or 7 Pixie Stix quite nicely, I described how to make these in THIS POST.

Since my projects feature animals I am also entering them in this week's Mod Squad's 'All About Animals' Challenge

Know what the greatest thing is about all the treat holders in my stop on the hop?  They are ALL WICKED EASY to make!  Seriously!  Each one was cranked out in a matter of minutes, then you just spend as long as you like embellishing them up!

Hi Crafty, Love all three of your treats...I really like the pencil holder, I am always making treat bags for my granddaughters class parties and adding pencils for all of the kids and they wiggle and wobble all over the place, will have to try the pencil holder. Thanks for all of the ideas. Great job!
