Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply challenge inspired me to hang the name tags onto the candy sticks to complete these sweet butterflies! Check out her blog, Notimetostamp? for this weeks challenge details! I hope you get a chance to play along! I am so glad you stopped by today! I truly appreciate it! Take good care, I will have another quick Easter name tag creation tomorrow, think plastic eggs!

With Candy Sticks, Gift Cards, and Butterflies!
A quick Easter gift for my girls! A gift card is wrapped and attached each candy stick with a rubber band. EASY and quick! And that is what I need right now!I used my JustRite vertical stamper to create name tags for each butterfly stick. You can see my Brayton 50pt font is well used and loved! I placed the larger vertical stamper in the picture to show you the two wood mount sizes, 1-1/2" x 5" and 1/2" x 5" ! Wonderful, I tell ya! You can personalize anything with JustRite stampers! When I received this Spellbinder die set, even though they are flowers, I kept seeing butterfly wings! Hmmm, but how was that going to happen? After cutting the three sizes, I simply removed one flower petal! Voila! Butterfly wings! The three sized butterfly wings are attached together with Terrifically tacky tape, then adhered to the wrapped gift card. A peek at the backside shows you how the rubber band is holding the butterfly creation to the candy stick! All designer paper is from K & Company, Berry Sweet. Papertreyink twill ribbons are tied, and cut to reassemble antennas. Tags are hung on the stick with Martha Stewart bakers string. What a great way to present a gift card, share a sweet piece of candy, and personalized to boot!
