Have Mercy!

Since my youngest started preschool, I've found myself able to volunteer at school more often and it has taken up free time that I wish I had. But, it is important for me to be in the school and staying involved as much as I can.

It is cutting into my crafty time because I'm not getting all of my house work done during daylight hours.

On top of that, I've been consumed by baking cookies for our annual party and quick bread for holiday gift giving.

But, last night, I sat down to make something, just because. Well, actually, because I wanted something pretty to hold some handmade candy canes I had bought.

A Muse has a simple but cute candy cane holder template that I used. Then, using the "glitter on double-sided adhesive" trick, I made the lines with some Martha Stewart sparkly red glitter. Add a little baker's twine and a stamped tag, and I had a cute box.

A little belatedly I realized that I could post this on the Moxie Fab World Challenge: Glitter is Glam. This technique is one mentioned in the post, too, so you should give it a try!
