Valentine Treat

Hello crafty friends!  It has been a tradition of mine to give Valentine treats to co-workers.  Last year, I made treat pouches with chocolate inside.  This year, I decided to make something from a big tub of Twizzlers.

Because of time constraints, I had to make something quick and easy.  for this project, I just basically secured 2 or 3 sticks of Twizzlers together with a Valentine-themed ribbon.  For the toppers, I stamped a sentiment on white cardstock.  After that, I embossed with heart design embossing plate, then punched around the sentiment to achieve the shape that you see here below.  For a final touch, I adhered a glitter heart sticker on each one.

Then I adhered the topper with double sided foam tape.

Now my Valentine treats are all done and ready for distribution.

Towards the end, it turned out I was one topper short.  And since I got lazy, I substituted with a die cut heart instead.  Doesn't it look nice on the pic?

Materials used:
cardstock/dp:  Georgia Pacific
image/sentiment:  Stampin' Up
ink:  Ranger
tools:  Fiskars embossing plate, EK Success large punch
embellishments:  stickers, ribbon
adhesive:  Scotch, foam tape

There were some leftover Twizzlers that came bent during the packaging process.  I didn't want to eat all of them, and I didn't want to waste them either.  So I just adhered random Valentine embellishments on one end, and put them in a metal pail.  Maybe I'll give them to some students who'll make me smile.

I hope you all have a wonderful Valentines Day, and get to spend it with that special someone.

'Til next blog!
