Dreamweaver Stencils: May Challenge...Tiny Treats for Smart Cookies!
Another month, and another challenge for the Dream Team, and all of you who follow along. For the month of May, we are fixated on "Tiny Treats"...party favors, wedding favors, end of school year treats, teacher appreciation gifts, baby shower favors, co-worker treats, in other words...small tokens of appreciation for those you care about.
My "1 Smart Cookie" treat is perfect for teachers, schoolmates, grads, promotions, etc. I chose to feature the wise Open Owl stencil, and paper pieced him with Cosmo Cricket "Earth Love" patterns, except for the open tummy portion. I created a valley fold in the bottom of the Bazzill Dotted Swiss cardstock panel, die cut a circle through both sides, and inserted a small cello bag with a couple of cookies inside.
As part of our year-long collaboration with May Arts, I added a twisted burlap bow, wrapped with burlap twine for a rustic touch.
The eyes were just punched circles of paper with cute buttons on top. All in all, this could be a fun project to do with the kids. Pretrace the patterned paper for them to cut out and paste to the pre-machine-embossed owl. The fold lines could be pre-scored, and the circles die cut. Just "some assembly required"!
Since both our A and B teams will be sharing their bright ideas for tiny treats all of the month of May, you have no excuse for not providing handmade tiny treats for those May-June events, and don't forget to link them on the Dream It Up! blog for a chance to be this month's prize winner, and be featured on the Dreamweaver Facebook page!
Here's the list of our A team:
