Tart & Tangy Gifts Weekend Project

Ok, here it is.  Just as promised.  I finally got them all done.  I suppose I could have shown this to you  when I had a couple done but then (knowing myself as well as I do) I know I wouldn't have gotten them all done.  So now they are all done and I can share them with you!

I do SO love the direct to rubber technique.  I took my image and colored in the red and green with a marker.  Then I huffed on it.  The moisture in my breath was enough to keep the ink from being too dry and I stamped the image on my white card stock.

I made 14 of them so it took a bit of time.  When doing just a couple of anything it doesn't take long at all but when you do more than a handful it does take a while.  Not that it was difficult, it was just time consuming.  It was a project I wanted to do but didn't really have the time for, so I would take a few minutes here and a few there and finally they are all done!

I filled some baggies with the strawberry candies and now I have a fun spring favor/gift all ready to go!!  Hope this was worth the wait!!

A tip on cutting the card stock for the baggies.  I measure my baggie and then I cut my card stock 1/4" wider.  As for the height of the card stock, well that all depends on what you want on the front.  I practice mine with a piece of scrap copier paper and when I get what I like or need I then move on to the card stock.

These are a lot of fun to make and honestly, they are very simple.

I have lots of other "Weekend Projects" too.  Just click here and you will be taken to them all.  All 149 of them plus this one makes 150!!!  WOW, hope you have lots of weekends free!!! LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
