Today's project is a cute candy holder made with the Two Tags Die and the Googly Ghouls stamp set.

Instructions:  Take an 11" x 3" piece of Basic Black CS, fold in half, then score 1/2" on either side of center fold ,then crease to create a mountain fold.  Lay on die, so folded ends are within the image and won't be cut when run through the Big Shot.  Die cut the tag with the Big Shot.  Create a belly band from a 1" x 5" piece of Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP.  I put 4 tangerine flavored stick candies in a cello bag and tied with a piece of Black Taffeta Ribbon.

Here are a couple more birthday cards:

This one was made by my mother (yes, without my help)!

She loves using the shaving cream technique for backgrounds.  

The card was made my one of my hostesses this month, Suzy Norris.

She used a kit she had purchased.  I love the owl accent.  Too cute!
