Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope everyone gets lots of “sweetness” today! For my project today, I chose some sweet colors from the Pals Paper Arts challenge:
I wanted to make a special treat bag for my daughter to take to work; I saved this little pancake mix bag that we had gotten in a gift basket for Christmas:
(They were yummy, too!) I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches:
to transform my bag!
I wheeled the background and used some images from Artistic Etchings as well as the Spring mini set Collage Curios; the doily was a little too big to fit my panel, so I pleated it a bit and added my heart, butterfly and key embellishments:
And of course, it is filled with some yummy goodies!
For a friend of mine who LOVES chocolate, I made a heart candy kiss holder after seeing this on Martha Stewart’s website:
It’s a bit difficult to see, but it has two little petal-shaped pockets; I made this one out of some heavier-weight DP from my “other” friend Martha!! I started out with a 6x6” square, followed the directions for folding and cutting it out, and then embellished it with some little doodads and a pretty gingham ribbon. There is a video that you can see here that explains the process a little more clearly than on the MS website.
Finally, this little treat came from my sweet friend Frenchie….she sent this all the way from Florida for Cassidy:
It’s adorable! Thanks so much, Frenchie! Thanks, all, for visiting today!
Trying to get that last little flake out of the breakfast bowl!
