The project I’m sharing with you today is the Monster Hugs Valentine Treat Holders and you have a few days left to order them.  (Available until January 27th.)

You have a choice between boy or girl and you get 18 per package for $5.95.  They will hold the following candy … and maybe more

  • Hershey Nuggets – 2 of them
  • Nerds – small box
  • Valentine Sucker
  • Laffy Taffy
  • Kit Kat  candy bar – snack size 

Or you can make a box to hold some Hershey Kisses.  

The Coastal Cabana card stock measures 3-3/4 x 3-3/4 and you score it on two sides at 7/8 and the other two sides at 1-1/2.

Here’s a picture of the template.


In my video today I demonstrate how to make them the traditional way … and the box.


Here’s a video on how to make the Monster Hugs.

Personal  Note:

Holy Cow … what a day I had yesterday!!  We woke up to our heat not working … and then our internet and phones went down … and the list continues.  As you can image I was totally freaking out!! So…. I will apologize again … if you’ve tried to reach me over the past month and failed … please call me 913.901.7551.  My email box has thousands and at this point it’s safe to say I’m never getting to the bottom … as hard as I may try!!!  

You want to know what I did while I was pouting?  I took an external hard drive and copied every family picture to it that was taken between 2006 and 2012 (each computer in this house has pictures …. that was iMac #1).  My goal is to have my external drive hold every single picture of my family, friends and pets on one hard drive that I can keep in a safe … for just in case.  After yesterday … I decided I needed to take action immediately.  I’ve started with a 1 TB external hard drive … lets see how far I get!

Have a wonderful day and thank you!!!

p.s. Our heat is working on and off ….. when my hubby gets home he needs to look at it … my hands are totally frozen at the moment (not really .. but you know what I mean?).
