Method Monday

***Edited to Add: Apparently, I left off the most important step which is adhering the cello bag of candy into the Triangle Treat Bag. See the picture at the end of the post.

First, let me say I'm sorry it's been so long since I've posted. I started a new job last Monday and things have been a bit hectic. I really like it so far, but I've worked from home for 3 1/2 years ... so I'm still adjusting to commuting to work and business casual dress. Let's just say that my dress code in my home office was very lax. The only "rule" I had was I *HAD* to wear PJs on rainy days ... lol.

Okay, onto the post. It's my turn to host the Method Monday challenge over at the InStyle Stamps blog and this little triangle treat project is what I decided to do. I based my project on Tracy Durcan's project on the Scor Pal website.

Supplies used: Chick in Nest Digital Download from InStyle Stamps, 4 1/4 x 11 piece of So Saffron CS, 4 X 3 3/4 piece of DSP, 3/4 x 4 1/4 piece of DSP, 3" Scalloped Piece of DSP and So Saffron CS, Eyelet Border Punch, Large Pop Dots, Clear Cello Bag, Festive Chocolates, Sentiment by A Muse and Tombo Adhesive

Step 1: Score 4 1/4 piece of cardstock at 1 1/2, 5 1/2 and 7

Step 2: Along the top where the 1 1/2" line is, start in the center and punch with the eyelet border punch, slide to the right of the punched section and punch, then slide to the left of the punched section and finish your border

Step 3: Color the image with Copics and adhere to scalloped circles (which are adhered together to made them more stable because this layer is what keeps the project closed). Then apply large pop dots to the bottom two thirds of the back of the scalloped circle layer.

Step 4: Stamp the sentiment on the 4 x 3 3/4 DSP and adhere to the So Saffron CS by centering in the section from the 7" score line to the bottom of the cardstock. Note the sentiment will be near the 7" score line, which will seem to be upside down, but you'll be folding this over. Also, adhere the 3/4 x 4 1/4 strip of DSP after centering from the top of the cardstock to the 1 1/2" score line.

Step 5: Adhere the scalloped circle layer to the front of the bag project.

Step 6: Adhere cello bag with candy into Triangle Treat Bag. The scallop circle keeps the bag closed.

Your card is adorable! I love that sweet image. :)
