The extra hour over the weekend gave me a little time to bake! I had seen a recipe for Cinnamon Apple Scones on Pinterest, and since my parents and sister had just gone apple picking and brought me a bunch of yummy apples, I just had to try it! These are so delicious that I decided to share with a few colleagues. Of course, a paper crafter can't give away a treat without making it cute, right? I quickly wrapped them in saran wrap and tied pretty metallic simanay ribbon from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique around them. This ribbon is 2" wide, but I folded it in half to make it narrower and denser. Love it!
Anytime I want to give away a homemade treat, My Creative Time's All Around Goodies makes it a snap to create a cute, quick tag. I just used the Scallop & Stitched Circle Dies to cut my cardstock, stamped on the appropriate sentiment and image, and colored it with Copic markers. So easy!!!
Here's a closer look at the scones. I highly recommend them, and you can find the recipe here. It calls for cinnamon chips, which I had never heard of before. I thought maybe it was an east coast thing, but I was pleasantly surprised to find the Hershey brand right next to the chocolate chips at my Safeway store!
