I was asked to create a project for a Valentine Craftacular workshop scheduled for February 8th, and this is what I came up with. I just can't get enough of the Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack...LOVE the color combination of Coastal Cabana, Real Red, Crumb Cake and Whisper White. Another plus...this 4-1/2" x 6-1/2" stack comes with 48 sheets (4 each of 12 double-sided designs). WOOT!!
The pouch uses one sheet of designer paper that has been scored at 1-1/4"down the long side and at 3/4" on the short end. I used my Envelope Punch Board to round all four corners before folding into the pouch. I used Sticky Strip to hold the edges together versus Snail Adhesive....wanted to make sure that the M&M treats would get to stay snug as a bug in the pouch.
The focal point...layered hearts is created with a mix of our Full Heart Punch and the Hearts a Flutter Framelits dies. The sentiment was inked with Real Red and stamped onto Whisper White and popped up with dimensionals before attaching to the Coastal Cabana scallop heart die cut. It needed a little bling, so I used the arrow die from the Label Card Thinlits Die (so many fun dies in that collection). I cut in 1/2 and glued in place.
The M&M's are nestled into our 1"x8" Cellophane (skinny) bags. They have a self-adhesive strip to seal them in. I decorated the top with some 1/8" Real Red Taffeta Ribbon, and, VOILA!! A treat that is super cute and tasty!!
