I'm in LOVE with the Oh, Whale stamp set - perfect for Valentines, Thank You Cards, and so much more! This year I wanted a valentine that wasn't just about candy, and this two tags box is perfect for tucking a cello bag full of something fun like pretzles (or Gold Fish - how cute would that be in a Whale box?) Of course you can also tuck in a cello bag full of chocolate :)
Stamps: Oh, Whale!
Inks: Primrose Petals, Jet Black StazOn
Card stock & Paper: Marina Mist, Sunshine & Sprinkles Designer Series Paper
Did you see this week's new My Digital Studio Downloads yet? I LOVE the Oh Baby Photobook template - what an adorable way to document baby's frst years - and also a GREAT kit for creating Iron-Ons for baby onsies and other gifts!
Bake up a sweet gift for your Valentine! The Sweet Pressed Cookie stamp makes it easy to make up pretty and tasty cookies. Package them up in a box and add the cordinating card for a gift that will WOW!
Today I'm sharing My Craft Project Central project with you!
Your Valentine will feel extra special when you dress up fancy candy in these cute mini circle boxes and pair them with the coordinating card. The boxes are so quick and easy to make and every piece of candy is its own little gift! The Ferrero Rocher candy is a great choice for Valentine ’s Day, but if you want something for your younger Valentines try stacking Mini Peanut Butter Cups in the boxes!
The tutorial for these cute boxes and the card are avaliable at Craft Project Central when you subscribe for December.
The little red flowers were created by punching out a flower from one of the punches matching the Bitty Buttons. I sprayed the paper with Stampin' Mist and then scrunched it up. Once they were dry I layer a few together and glued them using Tombow Multi Glue. It's really easy to make flowers using this technique - but beware - when you're using red paper it does tend to bleed a little - make sure you have scrap under the paper while you're working with it and enjoy those - Inky Fingers!!
