Made in Minutes......w/ MCT

Good Morning and welcome to
My Creative Time's~ Made In Minutes!

The MCT DT will be sharing quick and easy projects using MCT stamps and dies that you can recreate in no time. Make sure to check out My Creative Time for all the other Made In Minute projects!

For my project I made some sweet treat envelopes/cards and I made them for a few different holidays. I actually made 3 more but didn't have a chance to photograph them...that is how fast and easy this project was. 
From start to finish each treat took about 10 minutes....with the longest time being picking out papers :)
I have included several pictures of each with the product description linked below each one.
I hope you like them!!
Here are the 3 that I made...
a Fall one, A Valentine's Day one and a Halloween one.

And here are the backs so you can see the fun closures that are included with the Scallop Stitched Envelope Die that was used to make these. Each envelope was then closed using some Trendy Twine in either the Totally White or Totally Natural

And here are the cute cards that are added inside each envelope. As you can see the cards hold a chocolate perfectly!!!
I will walk you through each one so you can get a closer look.
Valentine's Treat
Need a quick and easy Valentine's Day card to give to a neighbor, teacher, friend??? Well these are PERFECT! As you can see I added a Ghirardelli chocolate to the 3x4 stitched journal card. I only had a Christmas one so for sake of the picture I added that (and then I ate it...LOL)

Supplies Used:

Halloween Treat
And here is the one I made for Halloween. MCT has so many fun stamps and dies that picking just one sentiment to add to the journal die was so hard :) So I went basic...LOL!

Supplies Used:

Fall Treat
And here is my Fall one. Don't you just love the papers!!!

Supplies Used:

I think my Made in Minutes turned out pretty good :) They were so fun to make that I kept making them. All the papers I used for these came from my scrap stash so these are perfect for using up all that beautiful designer paper! 

Make sure to check out the other DT member's projects over on Emma's blog~ 
My Creative Time.
I can not wait to see all the FAB projects everyone made!!!
