Valentines Treat Holder

My sister always wants something fun to put on her desk since she got a new job so I picked up this plastic holder at Micheal's on Christmas clearance. I even decorated it early so she can put it on her desk before the holiday. Even better I was able to be inspired by a few challenges when making this project. Creative Belli called for hearts and the large heart is from a swap and the brads have been in my stash just as long. I love having gorgeous handmade embellies in my stash from past swaps when I need to make a quick project. The Crafty Creations challenge was a Love or Valentines theme which this candy holder fits perfectly. I punched holes in the plastic holder with my crop-o-dile and then weaved a fun sheer hearts ribbon from Target through it. You can't see in the picture but I filled this with pink and red Starburst to get her started but I'm sure she'll need a refill before the holiday especially if she leaves it on her desk. Happy Friday everyone!
