Cyber Monday with Clear and Simple Stamps

Clear and Simple Stamps is celebrating Cyber Monday with a fun project that incorporates technology. You've probably been seeing those little QR codes you can scan with your smart phone on products everywhere and today, CSS is sharing how you can use those codes in your paper crafting.  I've made a sweet little project that includes one of the codes. 

This is a super easy treat holder that has a trio of Hershey Kisses tucked inside. The base is a quarter sheet of cardstock, scored at 2 1/4" from each side to form a triangle, leaving a 1" strip at the center that will hold the Kisses.  I used a glue dot to keep them in place.  The topper is a 2" wide strip of patterned paper, scored at 1" and folded, then set on top of the folded base.  I used a circle punch to make a notch in each side, then wrapped a ribbon around the top.

The ribbon is secured by a heart brad at the top of a pale pink tag made with a folded Tags 1 die cut piece.  The folded up end of the tag is tucked under the brad to keep it closed.  I stamped "sweet treat for you" on it and accented it with a die cut heart. When the tag is unfolded, it reveals the QR code inside.  The recipient can scan it with a smart phone to hear the message--yes, go ahead and try it!

Sounds fun, right?  Be sure to check out the CSS blog for a step-by-step tutorial on how to create your own voice memo gift tag.   And, check out DT member Jennifer Rzasa's blog for another examples of QR codes in action in paper crafting.
