Hey, hey ‘Fetti Fans and Happy Friday (and Super Bowl weekend).
Do you have fun plans for the game? I have to admit, we’re going to be duds and just hang out at home. I’m more interested in the commercials than the teams playing this year. I guess that’s just about every year though, but sometimes cheering occurs in between the commercials, too. My (8 year old) daughter is excited to see Katy Perry perform at half-time. I’m crossing my fingers for no wardrobe malfunctions, etc!
. . . . .
It’s Friday, so you know what that means…
Let’s take a peek back at what the Confetti Crew has been up to this week!

Welcome to a very special edition of WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS! Confetti Crew member, Amy Sheffer has a few fabulous creations to share with you!
What is WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS?
It’s not really about one thing in particular, but rather “the works” of a stamped card or project. A variety of topics will be covered in this segment… from color combos to shaped cards to inspiration pieces to mixing and matching stamps and/or papers…and everything in between.

Hello, Reverse Confetti friends, it’s Amy here today with some cute swivel-flap Valentine riddles. As soon as I saw the square tag, it reminded me of this little swivel cover on my bed post that covers up a bolt hole. To access the bolt, just rotate the cover. Inspired by that, I thought I’d try making some sort of project where the tag rotates and underneath is a surprise. First, I thought about having the tag cover a circle window to a treat box. But then lift-the-flap books came to mind, and I knew some punny Valentine riddles would be perfect! I looked up lots and lots of Valentine riddles, keeping Reverse Confetti products in mind, and came up with quite a few ideas using various images and sentiments, plus some computer-generated text. I’m showing four of those ideas today.
First, a look at all four Valentines closed, where you can see the riddles:
And here they are with the tag rotated out of the way to reveal the answers:
I started all four Valentines with the large rounded rectangle from DOCUMENTEDConfetti Cuts. Each riddle and answer is printed and/or stamped on a SQUARE TAG and tied onto the rounded rectangle. I kept the same color scheme for all four, embellishing each with a white embossed row of dots from I LIKE YOU, a row of hearts from LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts, a strip with a stamped XOXOXO from CRUSHIN’, and a “Happy Valentine’s Day” sentiment from PUPPY LOVE. The riddles are all done with computer-generated text, then stamped with dotted lines from ROUNDABOUT.
