I love to celebrate Valentine’s Day, of course with my husband, but I also enjoy sharing cute treats with colleagues, friends and family. My theme for this project, therefore, was to showcase several ways to deliver a sweet treat, and the Red Pop collection was just perfect for this. I used the Happy Hearts, Gingham and Daughter’s Rose paper sheets for all the makes.

CUPCAKE HOLDERS

  • This is such a quick and easy way to dress up a cupcake. I used a die to cut the cupcake wrapper from the Daughter’s Rose paper. The die cuts a little notch to close the wrapper, one doesn’t even need glue!

‘LOVE’ CRACKER BOX

Handmade Valentine Treats
  • I used a die to cut the box panels from the Happy Hearts paper. The die also cuts a rectangle window and I glued some heavyweight vellum on the inside. Acetate would also be a fun alternative if you have some coloured goodies on the inside to be seen through the window.
  • I then assembled the box.

Handmade Valentine Treats

  • To match the red and peach colour scheme, I wanted the bows on the ends to be a little peachy, but, believe it or not, I didn’t have the colour I wanted among the ginormous ribbon stash that I hoard So I coloured some paper ribbon I had with the abandoned coral distress oxide spray. I cut the size piece I needed, placed it in an espresso mug, gave 2 sprays and mixed the ribbon until it was fully coated. I then dried it with my heat tool (aka hairdryer!).
  • After filling the box and closing it up, I die-cut the sentiment from mirror gold cardstock, and the shadow from black cardstock, and adhered it to the box front.

COTE D’OR CHOCOLATE MIGNONETTE HOLDERS

These are so much fun to make and I plan to give these out to all my work colleagues this year. There are 12 mignonettes in a box… I have 6 colleagues, so I get to eat 6 while I make theirs 😂

Handmade Valentine Treats

Handmade Valentine Treats

  • I cut the patterned paper using a stitched rectangle die to give a piece measuring 11x7cm. A die is not needed, I just like the stitching detail and it coincidentally resulted in the exact size needed to hold the chocolate. I then scored at 1.5cm; 2cm; 6.3cm and 6.9cm as shown in the figure below (shown in white for visual aid, I cut this panel from patterned paper for the finished holder)
  • I put some double-sided tape on the back of the chocolate and adhered it to the inside panel in between the inside most score lines.
  • I stamped, die-cut and coloured some cute Lawn fawn images which I glued to the narrow piece which folds over at the bottom. I then added a glue dot near the top of the stamped image at the back so that it can keep the cover closed but still allow the recipient to open and retrieve the chocolate.

POCKET TAG

Handmade Valentine Treats
  • This adorable tag has a pocket which fits a mini chocolate slab (from Woolworths).
  • I used the Pinkfresh Studio Fillable Tag die set to create this, however, you could easily cut 2 pieces with the following dimensions: 5x8cm for the back piece (use any border punches or dies to add a decorative edge at the top, and a hole punch to add the ribbon/string). For the pocket, cut a panel measuring 6cm (width) x 6.5cm (height). Score 0.5cm from each edge on 3 sides and fold these to the back. Apply double-sided tape to the 3 folds created and adhere to the larger panel.
  • Using the double-sided patterned paper has the added benefit that the back of the tag is also pretty!

LOVE CARD

Handmade Valentine Treats
  • I had a small piece of the Daughter’s Rose paper left over, featuring the cute bird. I decided to frame it with a foiled heart wreath (Couture Creations
  • Framework Cut Foil Emboss Dies Nesting Lace Heart), which was foiled with the Gemini foilpress.
  • The sentiment was also hot-foiled onto black cardstock which I then trimmed using a sentiment strip die.
  • I adhered the bird wreath onto a panel measuring 11x15cm and framed the panel with a white border using the Pinkfresh Studio blanket stitch die. This was then adhered to a heavyweight card base.
