Pop Rocks Holders...

I was at Toys R Us the other day and as we were getting ready to check out I saw a big box of Pop Rocks candy. I thought, those would be fun to give away as Valentines, especially for kids in school. Instead of buying all the pre-made ones from the store, why not make your own. Or let you kids help so it has a part of them in it too. Anyway, they are super easy to make. Start with a half a sheet of cardstock, cut so it measures 8.5 x 5.5. Along the 8.5" side score at 3 3/16" and 6 3/8". That's it, well then either use brads or staple the smaller flap, like in the second picture. Then I just made a belly band to go around it to decorate it real quick. :) I stamped the image 3 different times and embossed them all. I also antiqued all the edges with Chocolate Chip ink. I really like it. :)
The inside.

After I made that one I thought a birthday one would be fun, so I used the new Goody Goody Gumdrops Hostess set for it. Same thing here, only I used brads on the inside instead of the staples. If you have any questions, just let me know. :)
