I hope you all are doing well and having a great week so far. I’ve been busy, busy, busy making all the cards for my Stamp of the Month Clubs, but I wanted to take a minute to show you this cute little treat bag I made.
You Are Loved Stamp Set (any greeting will work); Very Vanilla Card Stock; Regal Rose Card Stock; Basic Black Ink; Rose Red Ink; Pretty in Pink Ink; Silver Brads; Big Shot Die Cutting Machine; Hearts Collection Framelits; Embossing Folder of your choice; Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder; 1-1/4” Scallop Circle Punch; Decorative Label Punch; Ticket Duo Builder Punch; Crochet Trim; Stampin’ Dimensionals; Multipurpose Liquid Glue; Glue Dots
Method: Cut 2 Regal Rose hearts with the largest die in the Hearts Framelits Die Set. Run one of them through the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine with the embossing folder of your choice (the one I used is retired.)
Place a thin line of Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the edge of the back of the heart and adhere both hearts together.
Punch 9 small scallop circles out of Very Vanilla Card Stock with the 1-1/4” Scallop Circle Punch. Roll all of them into little balls and then roll them between your hands to break up the fibers of the card stock. Once you do that a few times, the layers of card stock will separate and can be pulled apart easily. Instead of the 9 scallop circles you started with, you will have 18. (6 pieces for each flower)
Lightly sponge all of the scallop circles with Rose Red Ink. Layer 6 circles together, making 3 stacks. Punch a small hole in the center of each of them, and place a brad through each stack.
Starting with the top layer, scrunch each scallop circle together as shown above. The flower should now look like the photo on the right. Slightly pull down each layer and shape into flower.
Stamp your greeting in Rose Red Ink on Very Vanilla Card Stock and punch it out with the Ticket Duo Punch.
Cut a piece of Crochet Trim, loop the ends over each other, and adhere to the heart pocket as shown below. Adhere the 3 flowers over the trim with Glue Dots. Add the punched greeting to the right of the flowers.
Take 2 more pieces of the Crochet Trim and adhere the ends of them to the tops of the heart pocket (front and back) so it has handles. Add the candy and you’re finished.
If you choose to use your heart pocket as a wall hanging, the handles will be hung over a small hook or nail.
This is a very fast and easy treat holder to make! I hope you give it a try.
