Mara's Papertrey Princesses Challenge

Popping in with my first Papertrey Princesses challenge post.  Mara challenged the group to use punches on a card, layout or project.  With so many great dies out there I tend to use my punches less and less and was thrilled to pull out a cute little heart punch for this project. 
I was planning to have Timothy here for several days and I wanted to put together a sweet little treat for him - a treat that would have just a little bit of chocolate or cookie or trail mix or something... I wasn't quite sure exactly what I wanted.  I was looking around at Target and found a jar of s'mores trail mix, and it looked like something that he would love.  I thought it was pretty expensive though, and I wasn't crazy about the pecans in it either, so I put together my own little s'mores mix.  I bought bags of Teddy Grahams and mini chocolate chips and got out some super mini marshmallows that I had ordered on the internet.  They are so cute and perfect for this treat.  Putting this together was super easy and much, much cheaper, too! 
I had to make something cute for my little sweetie's fun treat so I cut a wrap from this Accucut die and stamped it with a teddy bear from Papertrey Ink's Baby Button Bits stamp set.  Instead of using buttons I used hearts punched from red cardstock.  I love how they look!
 I filled a cello bag with my s'mores mix and tied the wrap with a polka dotted ribbon!
Timothy loved the crackers and couldn't get to the marshmallows quick enough but wasn't at all interested in the chocolate chips.  It was a shame that I had to help him out with that! 
Thanks for stopping by and for your sweet comments!
