Candy Bar Holder

Hi
It's Wednesday, and time for my Crafting Family Dt post.  It was a crazy time with my project. So the first project I made. i hated. It looked like Poo. So I made this candy bar holder, and I think it turned out cute.
So, I go down to the garage to get my camera and lose the project.  I joke with my husband that cancer made me stupid, I can't remember this. I walked downstairs with my project, got distracted, put it down and then when got back upstairs with my camera. Forgot where the project was.  I searched for an hour, gave up went to do laundry and found it on top of the dryer. :D I just laugh at myself sometimes. Anyway, I hope you enjoy my crazy story and my project.


 
I used Basic Grey Life of the Party Collection and the paper is called Buckaroo. The mat of the butterfly is Bella Road for the Record Collection Apron Strings Paper, and some scrap black.

I photographed it on yellow to make some of the colors pop.  This paper is so fun and colorful.
 
I will definitely be making more of these. Here are the directions.
Cut the paper 6 x 6. Score at 1/2 inch and 3 1/4. The 1/2 piece folds in to the right and the 3 1/4 side folds to the right to create the ouch. Tape down the 1/2 side and across the bottom. I punched a hole to tie my bow using 1/8 satin ribbon
 
I used an image from MelJens designs and I will be entering this in the anything goes challenge.  Princess Buttercup colored the butterfly with gel pens.
 
Have a fantastic day.
