Please click on the image for a larger view.

Owl Treat Bag Toppers
25 cents ea
 (fits m&m's, reese's pieces)
These adorable love birds sweeten any treat! Quick and easy to make - just fill the bags with your choice of candy. I do not recommend peanut m&m's as they were a tight squeeze.

Matchboxes
$1 ea with wrappers / 75 cents ea without wrappers
(fits 4 Hershey's nuggets or other small wrapped candy) 
(please let me know if you will use Hershey's nuggets so I can provide "LOVE" wrappers)

These adorable matchboxes are just too cute! They go together in a flash using our Matchbox Big Shot Die, some First Edition Specialty Paper and some Dazzling Details glitter glue for a little SPARKLE.

Sweet Pressed Cookie Four Pack
$2.50/four pack
You will stamp and bake the cookies during the event. Paper patterns will come from the Sweet Shop DSP in the Occasions Mini Catalog p.33.

These cookies are so delicious - you'll be lucky if they make it to the intended recipient! You will have so much fun squishing our Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamp into the yummy shortbread dough that I will have prepared for you. A splash of SPARKLE on the Glimmer Paper tie and a bit of BLING from the Rhinestone on the tag mean that this gift will dazzle the recipient inside and out!



Sweet Pressed Cookie Single Pack
$1 ea
You will stamp and bake the cookies during the event. Paper patterns will come from the Sweet Shop DSP in the Occasions Mini Catalog p.33.
These cookies are so delicious - you'll be lucky if they make it to the intended recipient! You will have so much fun squishing our Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamp into the yummy shortbread dough that I will have prepared for you. A cellophane bag keeps the crumbs in check and the stamped pattern fits perfectly into the heart-shaped window made with our new Framelits Dies!


Sweet Shop Lollipop Card
50 cents ea 
(fits small sucker)

With it's mouth-watering cherry and heavenly vanilla scented icing you will want to eat this card right up! Fortunately there's a spot to attach a sucker so you can eat that instead!

Kiss Card
75 cents ea
 (fits 4 Hershey's Kisses)

I'll precut and score the paper and card stock for these adorable treat box cards. You fill with kisses, fold and assemble!

Valentine Kiss Card Tutorial


Today I'll share with you a video tutorial that I created for my local stamping friends after my monthly Stamp Class last weekend. Learn how to create this adorable Valentine Card/Treat Box in One! This video also showcases the Take It to Heart stamp set and the new Hearts Collection Framelits Dies in our new Occasions Mini Catalog. It is based on this tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers and I have modified it to fit Hershey's Kisses instead of Hershey's Nuggets.
