Happy Friday Saturday! Yikes, the week really got away from me... between a Regional High School swim meet out of town on Thursday with my girls and a promotion at work (meaning back-to-back meetings all day Friday), I missed getting a post done yesterday. Better late than never, though, am I right?! Plus, you'll still have this idea to use in time for Valentine's Day tomorrow!!
This week over on the Sisters in Stamping blog I asked everyone to create Valentine favors in honor of the big day this weekend. I created my design based on an Easter one I made a couple of years ago (see this post for instructions and dimensions). I love chocolate raspberry as a flavor combination so used that as inspiration for my color palette going with chocolate chip and rose red. The stamp set featured is Groovy Love from the annual catalog - I really love this set - even more because the Sweetheart punch coordinates beautifully with the hearts in this set! The favor is held closed with velcro and the chocolates stay put in a cello bag.
Want to know how I created this heart embellishment? I stamped then punched out 6 hearts and then folded them in half lengthwise. I then glued them back-to-back to create this 3D heart. Fun, right?! The little sentiment was a strip that I cut feeding it through the bottom of the banner punch so that only the notch cut out from it. I trimmed the other corners off at the "from" end using my paper snips.
Here's one more view of my project... this favor can be changed up for any occasion and I love that it is created with just a half sheet of card stock. For even more Valentine favor ideas and inspiration, please be sure to hop over to the Sisters in Stamping blog to check out what the other designers created.
