Cute and Easy Valentine Treat

Valentine Treat

Here’s a great quick and easy Valentine treat for friends, family and children’s classmates.  We made these in our January Stamp Class and each person chose their own flower designs.

Cut a piece of cardstock 2″ x 5 1/2″, Score at 2 5/8″ and 2 7/8″ on the long side.  Use the new Scalloped Tag Topper Punch to punch both ends.  Decorate as you wish and add a nice chocolate Ghiradelli Square.  Yummy!

Here’s what I used:

Stamp Set:  Petite Petals Bundle (stamps and punch – 134822) Note – There are 6 different designs in the stamp set to choose from!

Ink:  Real Red (126949)

Paper:  Whisper White (100730), Real Red (102482), Silver Glimmer Paper (124005)

Accessories:  Scalloped Tag Topper Punch (133324), Hearts a Flutter Framelits (130159), Small Heart Punch (117193)


Pretty Little Roses

Roses in Snifter

Aren’t these adorable!  I fell in love with the Spiral Flower Originals Die in the new Occasions catalog.  I  found another wonderful use for the new Fringe Scissors (also in the Occasions catalog).   When a few Pals got together this was my share.  The other 3 gals made them and loved them.  Here’s all you need:

Paper:  Primrose Petals (126841), Pink Pirouette (111351), Very Vanilla (101650), Wild Wasabi (108641)

Accessories:  Spiral Flower Originals Die (129379), Fringe Scissors (133325), Hot Glue Gun with Silicone Craft Sheet (127853), 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon – Primrose Petals (126844), Small Brandy Snifter

Tip:  If you have a crimper it makes the greenery easier.  I cut the fringe but left about 1/4″ uncut, then ran it through the crimper and cut off the fringe pieces.  If you don’t have a crimper…just crunch the fringe in your hands.  🙂
