LOVE is in the air everywhere!
I created a sweet Mini-Treat Bag Valentine this week, and wanted to share it
with you and everyone at Stampin’ Up Only Challenges.
SUO Challenge # 115 VALENTINE’S WISHES
I used Melon Mambo cardstock to create this project made with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Die Set. I die cut the heart out of the front at the same time I cut the larger portion of the treat bag. I then added a piece of 3″ x 3″ acetate on the inside to cover the heart opening. Once it was all put together, I ran it through the Big Shot using the Happy Hearts Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
I finished it off with additional dies from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits- the pennant banner scored at 1″ on one side and the heart I already die cut. I stamped the heart image from the SU Groovy Love stamp set and used the Bitty Banners framelits to cut out the stamped sentiment. The stamped heart was punched out with the Heart Punch. I popped up the stamped heart and the die cut heart off the white banner and layered some sweet little hearts from the SU Pictogram Punches stamp set under the bigger hearts. I just stamped two of each little heart and put white baker’s twine between them with a Tombow glue.
I used the nifty ergonomically easy SU Handheld Stapler to attach the little hearts to the banner and bag. For some reason, I never have any luck using a traditional stapler on cards but the new SU one just “works” for me. Yea!
