IHP is Oh, so sweet!!!

Happy Tuesday!!!  Today, the i {heart} papers design team has been challenged to make a wee treat bag inspired by the European Candy Store in Ottawa.  This is a gorgeous little place, and while in Ottawa this past summer we walked by it a couple of times, but it was closed and it was very awkward to get to because of the construction going on outside the front door.  :(

Anyhoo, it's so easy to be inspired by this gorgeous website and the pictures of this shop.  I decided to make a wonderful old stand by, the classic sour cream container.  Mine are HUGE.  I used the ratio of the classic container (4 1/4"x 5 1/2") to make mine with flat paper measurements of 6 3/8"x 8 1/4".  Yes siree!  Super size me, baby!!!


I used a terrific stand by from a couple of years ago from Basic Grey, Bittersweet, for my project.  The candy coloured sweetness of these papers is a perfect palette for a confection container.



I used a couple of Spellbinders dies for these tags; Fair Isle and circles nestabilities, and Kate has them on sale right now, making room for all the gorgeous new product that will be coming in after CHA.




While looking for a sentiment for these treats, I discovered these tiny little gems in the Everyday Adorable set by Unity.  Again, Kate has this set and some older Unity stock on sale.  Add a little pink bling and some hot pink silk ribbon, and voila!

We would invite you to play along with us by adding the tag ihp0111 to your post on SCS or PCP so we can find it.

Check out what the rest of the team did for sweet treat packages;
 stamps; everyday adorable (unity)
paper; bittersweet (basic grey), swirlpool white, carob creme (bazzill), kraft 
ink; pitch black adirondack (ranger)
accessories; pink rhinetsones (zva), fair isle pendants, circles nestabilities (spellbinders), silk ribbon (may arts), scallop border punch (SU!)

These are so simply elegant and absolutely lovely Loretta! I love the soft colors with the pop of pink ribbon and all the scalloped, lacy edges!

Would love to get to stroll by this gorgeous candy shop window! :)

This is adorable Loretta. Your hanging tags are a perfect addition to these cute little sour cream containers...although what is inside isn't the least bit sour! Awesome creativity!

We used the same Unity set- how funny is that! I was thinking- "I need a sentiment that says FOR YOU" and then found that one. LOL

Love these little containers. So sweet.

Super size is great when you are talking sweets. They are adorable & I'm drooling thinking about what might go in them.
