Candy from a Ladybug

For Valentine's, Mom sent us the cutest sliding treat holders, and once I started making them I couldn't stop! They're about 3x4.5 inches (a 6.5x4.5 piece wrapped & glued at 1/2 inch), and you can decorate them to your crafty-heart's desire. The only online tutorial I could find (without much work) was at Pioneer Party; I especially like their idea of sizing the holder for a particular candy bar.

I thought this would be a really fun use of Bugaboo's oh-so-sweet "Scene It/Ladybugs" digi stamp that I lucked out and grabbed as a freebie. I'm hooked now, tho! Also, I just had to pair it with TLC's "Advice from a Ladybug" sentiment.

I colored everything with Copics, then masked the main image and message section (see back of holder at bottom of this post) and sprayed everything with Tattered Angels chalk mist (Banana Pudding). I added a bit of tulle to one side of the holder, just for fun, but I do like how lends has a bug-catcher kind of vibe.
