Hello Blogging Friends!
I hope you're having a wonderful St. Patty's Day!
We don't do a lot of celebrating in my family on this day since it was 25 years ago TODAY that my dad passed away. I celebrate the fact that his suffering was over but of course at age 68, he was taken from us way to early and only as I approach that age do I really realize just how young he was!!
ANYWAYS . . .
Today I'm working on some cards & goodies for my 1st Spring Craft Show!
I was only invited a few weeks ago to participate in this show (I mainly do Fall shows),
and although thrilled to be able to share my Spring/Summer creations,
need to get BUSY so I have enough to share. The show is THIS SATURDAY! YIKES!!!
If you are in the AKRON, OHIO area, please come check out the show!

You've seen me share these Hershey Bar Pouches on my blog before.
I thought they'd be a quick and fun idea for the show.
I've used various papers/stamps/embellishments ... what do you think?
If you want to give them a try, here's the QUICK version of directions:
Paper - 7 1/2" x 6 1/2"
Score - 3" and 6" (leaves 1/2" strip to adhere your pouch together)
Ribbon - 24 - 30"
I use a 1/2" round punch for the ribbon ... only because that's what I have ... you can use whatever you have available ... maybe a slot punch or something like that.
Thread your ribbon through both holes (centered) ... push your Hershey bar inside the pouch keeping the ribbon on the bottom of the candy bar. Tie ribbon at the top.
Decorate to your liking.
Use the ribbon bow to PULL your SURPRISE candy bar out of the pouch.
A few challenges to share in:

Have a FABULOUS day!
