Big Shot Valentine Treats
This week I will be sharing some treat container ideas for Valentine's Day. I figure if I get everything made, packaged up, and set aside I may be a little less tempted to eat up all of the chocolate and candies. we'll see...
Both projects use the Stampin' Up Big Shot dies- the Baskets and Blooms and the Small Pillow Box along with the Riding Hood Red designer series paper patterns. For the basket I used the hearts from Simply Said along with the heart from the new upcoming level 2 hostess set A Little Somethin'. I also used 3 silver eyelets along each side seam and wove the taffeta red ribbon through the center ones and made a bow.
The little pillow box came together in a snap. Filled with candy and tied with linen thread and added Iridescent Ice embossed hearts punched from A Little Somethin' heart and added pearl.
Money saving tip: I scour through the after Christmas decorations to scoop up all of the red things that I can find and use them for Valentine's Day. By now (if there's anything left) it is marked down to 70% off at least. This is where I got the red crimped filler and I also got some clear bags, red wrapping and ribbon.
