I loved trying all types of crafts when I was younger -- coloring, stamping, painting...anything and everything! I kind of fell out of practice as I got older, but I did attempt a scrapbook during high school. It remains unfinished, but it's something that I definitely enjoy doing. This card kit is kind of like scrapbooking, in that you can decorate the cards any way you'd like. It comes with the following:
- 10 – 5¾" × 5¼" Tri-Fold Kraft Card Bases
- 10 – Kraft Envelope Boxes
- 10 – Clear Adhesive-Backed Treat Cups
- 10 – Dimensional Elements Sentiments
- 1 – 12" x 12" Printed Dimensional Elements Sheet
- 2 – 12" x 12" Printed Adhesive Sheets
- 2 yds. – ½" White Daisy Grosgrain Ribbon
The cards can be made for a variety of events, from birthdays to simple "thinking of you's." I think that these would be so much fun as a party activity, especially since you fill them with candy (or another small treat of your choosing)!
Here is my finished card. I'll have to admit that I wish that the kit included clearer instructions, because at first I wasn't quite sure what to do with all of the pieces. That might sound silly, because it really is a simple construction, but I think I was over-thinking it. I'm the type of person who likes to know exactly what I have to do, so I'm still not entirely sure if I assembled the card correctly. But it looks cute, right? The candy cup stays attached via an adhesive around the base of it, which attaches to the card.

Bottom Line: The My Originals® Sweet Surprises Card Kit is a super easy and fun craft for anyone who wants to put a smile on someone's face, including their own! The card I made took less than 5 minutes, and I love the way it turned out. I think this kit would be great for someone who might not have a ton of time to devote to crafting, but still wants to try something new. It retails for $19.95.
