Terrific Treats Blog Hop
Welcome back to the first Technique blog hop of 2020!
This month we are showcasing Terrific Treats- ways to make small gifts and goodies look like works of art. If you have arrived here from Maz Wood you are in the right place, and you can start or continue hopping from here!
With Valentine's Day coming up I wanted to share a little treat holder that doesn't require any fancy cutters or die cuts, just paper, cardstock, adhesive and a scorning board.
I created these treats using the February special Oh My Heart papers.
You simply take a 1.25 x 11 inch strip of patterned paper, add adhesive to one end and then attach the ends to form a heart shape. Then you can use a 2.5 x 2.5 inch piece of cardstock, scored at 5/8 n each side, to create a little box inside the heart to place a treat. In this case, I used Ferrero Rocher truffles as they are the perfect size!
You can use either side of the double sided patterned paper, and here I also fussy cut a heart and attached a banner using Pixie cardstock and stamping the "sweet" sentiment from the Oh My Heart stamp set stamped in Candy Apple ink.
This is such an adorable and easy project, I do hope you'll have a go with your own Valentines papers. Full detailed instructions can be found here.
Now hop on over to Melissa's Blog to see what she has created!
