Happy Valentine's Week!

I thought I would change things up a bit for Valentine's week and post a few Valentine's projects. I posted my "Super Sunday, pick a challenge" card already so you can scroll down to see that post after you vies this one.

I have a card and a goodie holder to show you for Valentine's Day:

How do you like my "lips card"? I saw a picture of lips in a magazine and thought...hmmm, let's see if I can create a card to look like lips. Well here it is, pattern and all:

And the matching 3D goodie holder. Here are the steps to create the goodie holder:

Step 1:

Cut the shape using the Labels Collection Framelits. I used the largest sized framelit and cut with the Mouthwatering DSP from the Occasions 2012 Mini Catalog. You can substitute any DSP of your choice.

Step 2:

Score 1/2" from the center in both directions. The photo above shows you where your score lines should be created.

Step 3:

Fold on score lines.

Step 4:
Using the Punch Pack, punch a hole through both layers of DSP at the top to create a handle. Tie the Organza Ribbon through the 2 holes. I filled a Cello Bag with Hershey Kisses to fit inside the goodie holder. Decorate as you like!

  • Mouthwatering DSP
  • Wide Oval Punch
  • Scallop Oval Punch
  • Small Hearts Punch
  • Punch Pack
  • Poppy Parade Ink
  • Pearl Jewels
  • Organza Ribbon
  • Stampin' Dimensionals
