Valentine's Day Crackers

Hallo Bloglanders

Happy Wednesday to all of you!  I've done some Valentine's treats to give away to friends. Wanna see?

Sorry friends, if you thought you'd be getting something big. This year my pressies are TINY. The middle section is 0.5 x 2 inches (about half the size of my wax highlighter). I've used a shape from Silhouette to cut the mini crackers to the exact size of a mini Mentos roll. It was easy - just measure the length and width of the roll and make sure you downsize the shape accordingly.  To decorate, I used the negatives from the free weekly shape.  Hop over to the Silhouette Blog to get your free shape - it has an envelope to fit as well. Don't miss out on this one. Once again, I scaled my free shape down and as always, my twine is from The
Why do I have negatives left over?  Because I'm making little "date night" notes to give to my husband for Valentine's day. More about that in another post. I always try to get an idea for the Silhouette free shape before it comes up in a blog post - once I've seen an idea, I find it harder to come up with my own, unique twist and I HATE being a copy cat - IMPERFECT ME.

That's it. Thanks for looking at my blog today. Have a Wacky Wednesday and please come back to play as I've got lots more to share right here.
