I just wanted to share these cute valentine treat bags I made for this weeks Wacky Wednesday Challenge. I will be giving these to my coworkers and dart team. I had initially wanted to make these for my son's class for school, but I don't think the kids would appreciate them as much as the girls at work. I got this idea from CapadiaDesigns. The cut file was no longer available, but it was really simple to duplicate. I had so much fun making and embellishing these.
First I used my SCAL and welded a scalloped heart to a rectangle. The measurement is 3 x 9. When it is folded up it measures 3 x 4. I scored at 4 and then again at 5. I was able to cut 2 bags per sheet of cardstock. Keep the remnants for embellishments. I also cut the scalloped hearts out in white and layered them on top. I used glitter glue and polka dotted around the scallops. Remember those remnants? I cut 1 inch strips by 9 inches to make the rosettes. I scored the strips at a 1/4 all the way down. Then I cut the scored strip in half again. I had a bit of a time making these rosettes. This is the first time I had ever made them and since they are so small it was a bit difficult. 38 rosettes later, I think I got it. LOL I had cut tiny hearts out also and used them for the center of the rosettes. I used glitter glue around some, rhinestones as centers for some and even glitter glue dots for others. I didn't use all the remnants, so then I decided to use my border punch to embellish some of the bags a bit more. I made a lot of punched strips and had plenty of them left over. I also used my white gel pen and faux stitched around the edge. Remember those remnants of punched strips? Well I used them some more. I glued them around tea lights. I left them hang over the bottom a bit and then gently pushed them under. This gave it a little rise. I really liked the way that turned out. I put a tea light and a few kisses in a ziplock baggie and inserted them into the treat bag. I then used my crop a dial and hole punched all three layers and tied it shut with a ribbon. I am really very pleased with these treat bags. I know the girls will love them also.
I would love it if you gave me some blog love and leave me a comment.
As always, have a great day and god bless.
