Isn't it great when you can use your smallest scraps of paper to make another project? I used the 3/4 circle punch and my scraps of designer paper to dress up these Hersheys Kisses. The best thing... these can be made for any and every holiday! :)
I purchased the SWAK stamp thinking it would be perfect for Valentine projects, and now I can't think of one stinkin' idea. With that being said, I think this turned out pretty cute considering it has a "Softlips" lip balm inside. I'd say it's appropriate for the stamp, wouldn't you? :) I'm going to keep trying to use this stamp on a "Valentine" project.Stay tuned...
It's Sale-a-bration!! The paper, brad, stamp and ribbon I used on this basket can all be yours for FREE during Sale-a-bration. Another great thing... I used the baskets and blooms bigz die cut, which is currently on the clearance rack, to make the basket. I scored 3/4 inch on each side of the basket pieces, folded and glued the sides together, then created a small piece for the bottom. It's a perfect fit for the mini hand sanitizer I placed inside. :)
If you look closely you can see I wrapped this box with a scallop circle cut from acetate using the scallop circle bigz die cut. It's held together with an eyelet, which also makes it easier to put ribbon through. The little box is a piece of designer paper cut at 2 1/2 x 5 and scored at 3/4 on each side. You know me... I like to see what's inside my gifts without having to unwrap them. :)
The hearts collection framelits die is the funnest! It makes several sizes of hearts and the best part... you can make a heart frame like the one on top of this box. I sandwiched a clear plastic heart between two frames so you can view the contents. The box opens and stays connected to the bottom of the box with two small tabs. It's a bit challenging and time consuming, but well worth the effort.
I think I'll put some of these in a little basket and set them on my desk at work. They look cute and I need something for Valentine on my desk. :)I found these individually wrapped gumballs and attached a tag to the top.The heart is made with the fashionable hearts embosslits die in the Stampin' Up! occasions mini catalog. Of course they needed a little bling, so I added the rhinestones. :)
I made this petite pocket out of vellum. It's holding sticks of gum, which I thought would show up through the package better than they do. I think something red on the inside would make more of a statement. :)
Have you seen the new occasions mini catalog? It has "PS I Love You" set, which has become one of my new favorites. It has the sweetest variety of valentine stamps in it. The chocolate strawberry is part of the set.
On to Valentine! :) I like putting out a few decorations for each holiday, so I created this little frame for part of my decor this year. I used the the lots of love letterpress plate and "love" :) the look of it. I have to admit... I struggled a bit with it, but I'm still happy I purchased it. The butterflies were made with the beautiful butterflies bigz die and much easier to use.
