We took the kids to the Renaissance Fair nearby- and we really enjoyed ourselves- it was very family friendly- and the kids loved to watch the little acts, and the jousting.
They met fairies, pirates and the queen. We had fairy floss (cotton candy), watched someone eat fire and they both got to participate in a foam-sword duel. It was quite the day!!
As requested, here are the quick instructions for the little treat holder we made together on the Ustream Friday night.
If you made one, or make one –please post it on the Pink by Design or Pink Cricut Facebook wall–we’d love to see it!!
This treat holder was designed to hold a Ghirardelli square chocolate or any other similar shaped candy.

- Coordinating pattern paper measuring 9 3/4 x 2 1/4
- Scalloped Punch at 2 1/2 inches- circle punch at 2 inches, circle punch at 1 3/4.

- Using a little bit of tape adhesive, insert the chocolate in the center of the black card stock.
