Guest Designer Ruthie with Valentine Chocolate Pretzels!


Happy Tuesday!

Hey paper lovers! It's Ruthie again from September Ninth Designs and I am back for day two, of my guest spot, here on Joy's blog!

Today's treat is chocolate dipped pretzels, in a bag, with a cute topper. 
Hand dipping and decorating pretzels, are just about as fun to make as they are to receive. I love all the fun holiday sprinkles that can be found at the store. You can find the chocolate buttons, in different colors, at Michael's and Joann's. 
I used my Gypsy to design the topper. I opened and sized the scalloped square, from Mini Monograms, to 3" x 3" wide. I found a square on George Basic shapes and sized it to 2.25" x 2.25". Once they were cut out, I inked the edges, glued them together, and folded them in half and adhere them, with Scor tape, to the tops of the pretzel bags. Lastly, I cut the heart dies, the banner dies, stamped the banners, and attached everything to the front, with foam tape.
Scallop Topper: Cricut, Mini Monograms
Square: Cricut, George Basic Shapes
Heart Die: My Creative Time, 100% Sweetness Stamp Set                     
Banner/Flag Die & Sentiment: My Creative Time, Chocolate Greetings Stamp Set
Papers: Echo Park
Pretzels: Target
Pretzel bags: Michael's
Chocolate & Sprinkles: Joanns & Target

**Giveaway**

So I thought it would be fun to have a giveaway each day too! Today's giveaway is my favorite crafting tool, needle nose glue applicator. It fits perfectly on the top of a bottle of Scotch Quick Dry Glue.
All you have to do is leave a comment here and on my blog with your contact information and I will pick the winner, via random.org, on Sunday, January 20th and all the winners will be announced on my blog, Monday morning, January 21st.

See you back here tomorrow!
I hope you have a wonderful day!
