I tucked a couple of Andes mints inside a scallop envelope. Well... an upside down, partially opened, scallop envelope. :)But, it looks cute and works better that way! All that matters is that it's green, right? :)
Once I had the hearts collection framelits die I knew I NEEDED the labels collection one too. :) I cut two of the largest label, one in designer paper and the other in cardstock. I cut each one in half and folded the half in half then tucked one inside the other and glued them together along the bottom. The flower is made with the five petal flower punch and the fun flowers die cut. The brad is one of the freebies from the sale-a-bration catalog (which by the way, are the cutest!)
A few alterations to the petite pocket makes a great package for three magnetic clothes pins. The everday enchantment DSP in the sale-a-bration catalog is so sweet and makes the clothes pins look so feminine. I used a small piece of the magnet sheets on the backside of the clothes pins so they can be used on your fridge or a magnetic board.
If you haven't tried the sweet pressed cookie stamps they're a must. :) They're so easy and fun to use! I placed and individual cookie inside a cello bag so I'd know exactly where to use the rub-ons on the outside of the bag. I used the love impressions rub-ons and a heart cut from the fashionable hearts embosslits die. A little ribbon ties it all together. You can give a plate full or package them individually. Who wouldn't want homemade cookies for their Valentine gift?! I'm not sure if you can tell from the photo, but the cookies are actually light pink. My teenage daughter was sweet enough to trace the lines with the red frosting, because if I did it, it wouldn't look like a heart.:)
Remember last time I used the swak stamp and said, "stay tuned", well I came up with a Valentine project using the swak stamp. Hmmm...now that I think about it... you can probably use this anytime if you change the color of the kisses. So much for my "Valentine" project. I tried... :)
Don't you love Sale-a-bration!? It's so easy to spend $50 on stamps and accessories from the Stampin' Up! catalog, and when you do you get a free item from the sale-a-bration catalog. This cute little love stamp is from the outlined occasions stamp set, one of the FREE sets!!!
Because I have a thing for glass containers, I hate to throw them out. This container was an olive oil jar. I knew I could use it for something and here it is... a M&M container for a Valentine gift. The lid is made with the large and small scallop punches. The trick is...the thinner the paper the better. It folds over the top easier and holds it shape with the thinner paper. Honestly, I thought I'd use the jar for a flower vase, but... :)
Thank you Becky Roberts for your inspiration. I knew I wanted to make one of these purses after seeing the one Becky made for Christmas. When I found these small packages of candy corns I knew exactly what I would use them for.
