For Marilyn, the link to enter the drawing for my Spellbinder's post is under #4....look toward the end, I think it's the last blurb with a * in front of it. Hope that helps.
Re: biscotti recipe....I purchased them from a baker friend so I don't have a recipe, sorry.
After the holidays are over, I'm ready to start the new year with anything BUT Christmas related items. Valentine's Day will be here before we know it and I love to get a head start on some ideas. Today, I made a treat box that resembles a box that candies would come in. I used a box that some stamps came in from JustRite for the main box. You can also find suitable boxes at craft stores and online stores like Nashville Wraps. I decorated the outside of my box with new papers from My Mind's Eye. This company always comes out with fun, new designs. Not too bright, a little vintage and right up my alley.
For the circle image, I used Just Rite Stampers Harmony Classic Circle II Stamp Ensemble Set and Papertrey's Pure Poppy Ink. I love the script of the sentiment and the cute heart border. I cut my image out with Spellbinders Circle and Scalloped Circle Die Templates. A few pink sequins finish off the main image. A long length of Papertrey Sweet Blush Grosgrain ribbon ties up the package.
For the inside of my treat box, I lined the bottom with more of the patterned paper. I wanted some tissue to protect the bottom of the box and to also give that *candy shop* feel to my packaging. I reached for a Papertrey Large Glassine Bag. I cut off the edges of both sides of the bag and unfolded it. Then I simply spread it out in the bottom of the box. Once the treats are inserted, I can simply fold the tissue over the goodies. Excellent idea that I'll be using often!
For this treat box, I filled it with chocolate dipped biscotti. My mom loves biscotti with her morning coffee so I think I'll give her an early Valentine gift.
