Made some more Valentines Treats today. Will walk you through each one:

Candy box was purchased in the cake decorating department at Michaels, or Joanns. Holds 1/2 pound of candy. I cut a strip of designer paper and trimmed the top edge with decorative sissors and glued around the bottom of the box. Strip is about 1 inch wide. Ran a 3 inch square of pink cs through a cb folder and glued lace to the edges and glued to the top of the box. The heart stamp is by Magenta. Tied a ribbon around the box. Glued a little heart charm to center of bow. You can do so many things with these boxes and they are pretty inexpensive.

Filled a cello bag with jelly hearts. Cut a piece of white cs a little longer than the size of the bag, and about 5 inches wide. Fold in half. Decorated 1/2 the card stock with bugs and stamped the saying (bugawumps). Staple the folded card stock to the top of the bag and add ribbon.

Another box from the candy making department (Wilton). Has the see through window in the box when purchased. I cut a piece of card stock to cover the front, cutting out the oval. Glue lace around the oval. Heart is a sizzlet that cuts and embosses, I used a dimentional to pop it up. I cut a smaller heart and stamped it with the words a dollar stamp from Michaels. Tied a ribbon around the box at the top.

I used a round doily and formed a cone. I cut another circle of cs a little smaller than the doily, and also formed a cone and taped shut. Put the cs cone inside the doily cone and tape in a couple of places to hold in place. I put tissue paper in the bottom of the cs cone. I inserted lollipops in the cone and taped in place. Punched two hearts and stamped on them and hung from ribbon from a multi-looped ribbon. The heart shaped lollipops were purchased at the dollar store.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope your Sunday is restful.

Hope you liked seeing these. I think I am done, except I am going to make chocolate covered popcorn and I have some small popcorn boxes to decorate and fill. Will post a picture when I do. Until later...........
