3-D Wednesday with My Creative Time!

Happy Wednesday my crafty friends! This week My Creative Time is having a super fun 3-D challenge with a twist! Make any 3-D card or project with TEXTURE! I created a vintage-style hanging treat holder that reminds me of the Victorian era and Valentine's Day so MCT's 100% Sweetness stamp set complimented it perfectly!
Here's the deets on how to make this treat holder for anyone interested in trying it:
*Start with a patterned or stamped cardstock, 12" x 9" x 9" triangle.
*Fold in half at the triangles point, then unfold.
*Fold in right side, then left side to form a "diamond" shape. There will be 2 extra flaps the come to a point at the top of the folds. Cut one off and fold the other in (or cut both off, whichever you prefer.)
*My finished pouch measures 3 3/4" on the top angles and 4 3/4" on the bottom angles and it's 6 1/2" tall.

I sewed the lace trim along the top for prettyness and texture and adorned the front with a variety of other pretties :) The hanger was easily attached with a small bling brad at the top and bottom.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Visit Emma's blog HERE to see our design team's super awesome projects today!
On a personal note, the holidays were crazy for me and I am overjoyed to be back in my craft room creating and back to my wonderful world of blogging friends! You all inspire me so much and I hope you have a beautiful day!
