Valentine Treats


I like to send my boys who are away, and their girlfriends, a little something for Valentine's Day. This year, I didn't have as much time to devote to this since I'm working full time now. But I tried to plan ahead, and I worked on them a little bit each night. It's not my best work, but the kids enjoyed getting a little something in the mail, and they know that I am thinking of them, and that's all that really matters.

The plastic test tubes came in very handy, since they were really fast and only required ribbon. The Hershey kiss bag uses the SU Top Note as a topper. The image is SU and is colored with Prismacolor pencils. The candy bar is wrapped in Bella Rose DSP and tied with Pomegranate ribbon.
The white chocolate covered cookie is wrapped in a glassine bag from PTI. I decorated the edge of the bag using a scallop punch, and the tag was created with the SU round tab punch.
The best part is that I did get these out in time and everyone got them before Saturday. I hope you all got to show the people that you love how much you appreciate them this Valentine's Day. Thanks for visiting!
