co-worker Valentines

This wonderful gift/card idea came from a fellow demonstrator, Connie Stewart. The ribbon is actually holding in three of the Hershey nugget candies.
Create the base with 3"x 7 1/2" Pink Pirouette cardstock, scored at 1 3/8", 1 7/8", 3 1/4", and 3 3/4".
I stamped light images all over the base and sponged around the edges. Then fold on the scores and place adhesive on the back of the first fold (1 3/8"). Fold this around so the edge is up against the last score line. This will form the "box" to hold the chocolates. Place the chocolates inside and wrap with ribbon. Choose your favorite way to tie off the ribbon on top to hold the chocolates in. I slipped a pony bead over the ends, but you could tie it with a bow, wrap twine and/or linen thread around it, or any other way that you would choose. Decorate as desired.
I actually used a retired stamp and die for the hearts. The glitter hearts are from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack 133787) and the smallest thinlit from the Hearts Collection (125599). They are both cut from the silver Glimmer Paper (135314). The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set (wood-128748 or clear-127802).
These items and so much more fun stuff can be ordered at my online store. Just click on the button to the right for all the available products!
Hope you enjoyed this and give it a try. It is another fast and easy project, which is always one of my favorites! Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!
