Happy Friday! Another weekend is here. I guess that's a plus when life is so busy...the weekends come fast! And I think I will have a happy little boy running home from the bus stop today. SPRING BREAK! And with record high temps this weekend, we are happy around here!

Just a quick project to show you today using the popular Spring Fling Stack available at Jo-Ann Stores right now. This has become a huge seller and I am not really surprised ;)


I created a quick cover for a box of candy that I picked up. I simply measured the width of the candy box and trimmed my paper down to that size. Wrapped the paper around the candy and adhered it. And then decorated the front with a piece of paper from the Chalkboard Stack and some twine. 


Sent it off to school with my little guy for a special teacher.


So cute for a quick "thank you" or "thinking of you" gift. I am always needing those :)


Thank you to everyone who participated in our "Pin It & Win It" giveaway on Tuesday! We hope you keep following DCWV on Pinterest and enjoy all of the stack-inspiration on there! For our winner of the Chalkboard Stack & the Spring Fling Stack, Congratulations to:  

Great simple gift project. I repinned it. I love that you put the 'Pin it" button at the bottom of your posts too!

Please email me {erinmadsen@diecutsinc.com} and I will get your paper right out to you!

  49. That is a great idea--use the paper to cover candy or other small gift. I am not a scrapbooker so sometimes I'm not sure what to do with some of those pages from the stacks.
