|You're Sweet, but another little chocolate kiss won't hurt!!|
The first is a sweet one! ;-) Because who thinks of Valentines Day without thinking of Chocolate!!
This is a cute way to keep count for little ones, but also a nice unique gift to send to loved ones far away, give to co-workers or neighbors, or use as a sweet Teachers gift. If you have more kids or want to be extra generous, you can add more kisses per link!
I'm using the You Plus Me stamp set, and Sale-A-Bration Best Day Ever Accessory Pack
on this project - for these and other sweet Valentine craft supplies,
|How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. ~ E. Barrett Browning|
For this project I used these Stampin' Up! products (full details at end of post):
- Hearts Collection Framelits
- Stacked With Love Washi Tape
- You Plus Me Stamp Set
- In-color Sequin Assortment - Strawberry Slush and Crisp Cantaloupe
- Sale-A-Bration Best Year Ever Accessory Pack - Coral Ribbon
- Thick Bakers Twine in Crisp Cantaloupe
- Bakers Twine in Whisper White
- Silver Glimmer Paper
- Confetti Hearts Punch
- Cardstock in Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Calypso Coral
- Handheld Stapler
Non Stampin' Up! items used:
- Saran Wrap
- Hershey Kisses (you can substitute other candies, or use a little toy or other gift)
|Too wide, but as long as you like! I cut the saran wrap in half |
so it was thick enough to wrap the kisses,
but not so bulky that you couldn't see the kisses.
The whole roll is just too wide.
|Lay out your treats, add some sparkle or color, if you like.|
|Once you reach the end of your links, leave a little extra to attache to the heart.|
|Layered hearts, popped up using dimensionals, |
hide the secret staples!
On the center heart of cantaloupe cardstock, I stamped You're Sweet in Strawberry ink. I added some stamped hearts, also from this set in Coral and Black. Then I added some sequins... and thought something was still missing! So I added the arrow.
I used a strip of Whisper White cardstock, and added 3 bands of Washi Tape to one end. I taped across the top of the strip, then folded the tape back over itself on the other side of the strip. This ensures the tape stays on, and added some opaqueness to the strips, especially the white with gold hearts - it's somewhat transparent. I trimmed the inside band a little to look like the arrow fletching, and trimmed the sides to match the edges of the tape for a clean look.
|Trim in towards the shaft - like a reverse pennant|
Trim the sides down to match the edges of the tape
