More Valentine Sweet Treats

These are the simplest cute little treats made with the Petal Card Sizzix die cut.
I used the Sending Love glittery DSP the sheet that is pink and vanilla.
The sentiment is from the NEW stamp set in the Occasions Mini catty
Well Scripted and punched out with the Full Heart punch adhered with a dimensional on top of that beautiful silky smooth NEW satin 5/8" pretty in pink ribbon.
Inside- I topped off the treat with the NEW heart embosslit and the small heart stamp from
(I) Heart stamp from the NEW Occassions Mini and popped out with the must have NEW small heart punch. Wrapped the Ghiradelli chocolate with the flip side of the front DSP.

This lil ditty I saw on Deann Oliver's blog, I have two versions. One with the paper I had left over from the Cocoa speciality paper I love this pattern I saved it for Vday's.
I used the new scallop trim border punch on the top flap, our 5/16' asst brads in white and underneath I have velcro to keep the flap shut. The sentiment from Short & Sweet Stamp set backed with modern label punch and movers and shapers die cut. The ribbon is sticky stripped underneath the flap to make a lil purse like handle. This will be one of Stamp camp projects.

This one is in the Sending Love DSP, using the NEW epoxy pretty in Pink brads from Occasions Mini catty with sentiment from Wishing You a Happy Heart stamp set in real red ink popped out with the modern label punch(a must have punch, so many sentiments fit in this punch!)

I think this is so elegant. Again I used the petal card die cut. I die cut two of them and cut a 1/2 inch off two flaps and joined them together with sticky strip and put the brads in for sturdiness. It is rather flappy around the top still though. Maybe I will double it up with CS behind it next time. I used a library clip to keep the top closed, you can also feed a ribbon through where the brads are and hang it as an ornament type deal.

Side view, I filled it with confetti paper and dove hearts.

My Build A Bear Mommy & Me Class

I held a Mommy & Me (Grandma & Me ) class on Martin Luther King Day since the kids were out of school. I made each child a tin like the one above.
Supplies: Sending Love DSP, Real Red CS, Regal Rose CS
Accessories: I did not have the additional sizzlit for her hair bow, purse and belt(I was so bummed) so I got my punches out and started playing with them to create a purse that would fit into this schematic. The designer label punch is her purse folded in half with a lil ribbon sticky stripped down inside and then a brad put thru it.
  • I also used the NEW little heart punch for the heart on her shirt.
  • The Heart on her hand is the NEW heart embosslit in the Occasions Mini with Happy Valentines Day sentiment from the Wishing You a Happy Heart stamp set.
  • Popped out with the modern label punch.

Using My Build A Bear die cuts, I gave them each 3 bears. along with shirts, skirt, and shoes, and the materials to make the purses. These were in a clear envelope sealed shut in their box for after we were through making the VDAY cards.

This is a picture of a 3.3/4 x4 pocket card with a 3x3 lil Vday card inside. the parents made the pocket cards while the kids colored their Valentines I had already stamped for them below.

Each child received 5 cards fronts to color and then the layers to assemble to the cards. When they were all done coloring and blending their Beary Best Friend image they got to visit the glitter station where the two way glue was set up with the Dazzling Diamonds. BOY kids love glitter.
The parents and the kids were thrilled and asked if we could do this again soon!
The key for success with this project was I did alot of the prep work by making the tins in advance(only four sets of them) and stamping the bears on the 2-3/4x 2-3/4 white CS so they could immediately start coloring and not mess around with the stamping on such a small surface.
We were done in two hours and everyone was thrilled. I also put some candy in the tins as well. Pixie sticks always a hit!!

I am doing a project for my daughters GS Brownie troop on 2/2/10 and I definitely think these lil bears will be so cute dressed up in Brownie gear. I have a pack of paper specifically made for Girl Scouts , so I think I will dress them in official uniform and add the Hearts to make the Brownie Valentine Bears!

Hope you enjoy!!
