Today is the January 2012 Key Ingredients Blog Hop! We have a theme this month, which is "Classroom Treats". For my project I made a card with a decorated bag of Sweethearts. This would be perfect for a teacher, or for a teen to give to their favorite friends!! The fun papers and embellishments in the January Key Ingredients Kit are perfect for these Valentine goodies....you will have a lot of fun creating with them! Here is my cute little treat set:

Cut a banner edge to two strips of paper, sand the edges and adhere together. Then adhere the layered banner to the left side of the card. Wrap ribbon around the middle, tie a double bow and adhere. Diecut a lacey circle from brown patterned paper and sand the edges. Layer a circle sticker to it, then adhere to the right of the ribbon using foam adhesive.
