Valentine's Tag Topper Treat

   Here is another one of the projects that we did at the private class one of my customers hosted last weekend.  With Valentine's day around the corner this was a fun quick project that was well received by the ladies at the class.  You can change it up for what ever event/season/occasion you need it for.  Ghiradelli chocolates are always appropriate!

  We used the new Scalloped Tag Topper punch to make this treat.  Just start with a 6 inch long piece of Blush Blossom and cut it 2 inches wide.  Next, score at 2 7/8" and 3 1/8".  Then use the punch on each end of the cardstock strip.  

  The Love You to the Moon stamp set in the Occasions Catalog has a nice assortment of love and thinking of you sentiments and images so we stamped the little 'xo' heart on the the Blush Blossom cardstock with Strawberry Slush ink.  

  We inked up the "Love You" with Strawberry Slush ink and then used a blender pen to remove the ink from the arrow and "you" portion of the image.  Next we colored the arrow and "you" with the Gumball Green marker and then stamped it onto Whisper White cardstock.  We punched it out with the large oval punch, popped it up with dimensionals and added a rhinestone.  

  To keep the flaps of the chocolate wrapper folder down I just added a little bit of double sided tape to the back of the chocolate, this will also keep the candy snug inside the pouch.

  The final bit to finish this up is the Gumball Green stitched ribbon threaded through the tag holes and tied.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
