Valentine gift packaging

First of all, thank you so much for all the birthday wishes! I had a GREAT birthday evening which ended up being a surprise girl's night out...filled with stories worthy of their own blog post, LOL!

Anyway, I was just itching to getting back to creating so I grabbed TE's latest Valentine Project Pantry...some bits of odds and ends here and there, and got to work!


So I started with papers from the kit and added some heart doilies and tags....


Made a handful of these (totally inspired from Michelle Wooderson's blog)! Gathered all of my supplies together in the kitchen like this...

And made a tag to put on a cello bag (the completed tag is on the bottom right of the picture above.


And then just started cranking out tags from there...all quick and easy to put together with the all of the trimmings from the Valentine Project Pantry....and a few other goodies available in the store.

I used the set A Little Love, to make my tags and the coordinating Favor Frame Die of course!


And my first prototype here. I used the Small Scallop Border die on the colored cardstock...and with all the tags actually!


I couldn't resist using my Scalloped Sparklers in the centers of all of the yo-yo flowers...just adds the right amount of sparkle!


They all turned out so fun and unique...each made with a special person in mind...


I can't wait to get to shopping to fill those bags with special treats for the ones I adore.


Really easy peasy!! The longest part was making the fabric yo-yo's....and I actually am inspired to make some more. What about you? How are you coming along on your Valentine projects? Hope you got some little nifty ideas here. :)

Thanks so much for your visit and I truly appreciate all your sweet comments! Have a great one!
