Tuesday was my twin granddaughters’ birthday.  It was so fun to have them and my newest granddaughter visit in August.  I received an email from my DDIL that the girls had a wonderful birthday but that their first day of Kindergarten was a bit of a disappointment.  For whatever reason, they were under the impression “that on their first day of Kindergarten they would leave knowing how to read”.  Too funny!


While they were here we did a couple of craft projects.  We played with this new SU! set, “Sweet Centers”.  So I thought it would be fun to make their birthday cards using it and the new little “Sweet Treat Cups”, too.


This is such a cute idea from SU!  And of course, whenever chocolate is involved, I’m there to give it a try!  The centers could be filled with other goodies such as crafting supplies… buttons, brads, eyelets, etc..  But, why would you?!?  LOL

One problem I ran into was that the weight distribution (top heavy) prevented the cards from standing up.  So to counter balance the sweet filled cups, I added a large heavy brad on the bottom inside of each card.  This did the trick and added another pretty element for the girls.


Happy Crafting, everyone!!
