Valentine's Day Treat Idea (Jen Carter)

Valentine's Day Treat Idea
by Jen Carter

Hey everyone!  We are moving into the month of love soon!  Are your kids pestering you about what kind of treats to pass out at school this year?  I have a fun idea to share today! I have had this earth die in my stash for a few months now, itching to use it!  I decided now was the time and I wanted to use it in an out-of-the-box way so I'm using it on a tag for Valentine's Day treats.

Jen Carter Frantic Stamper Color World Valentine Tag

I started by die cutting the Frantic Stamper Planet Earth die in both a watercolored patterned paper and a pink cardstock. I wanted the earth to match the sentiment so my paper needed to be a fun colored patterned.  I cut out the double pointed banner that is included in the Diagonal Card Sketcher set of dies and stamped part of my sentiment on it.  I layered this on top of the die cut earth with dimensionals. The little hearts are die cut from the Elementals #2 Lacy Heart Frames and are the perfect size for adding tiny embellishments to projects!  Here they frame the rest of my sentiment.

The tag is cut with the Elementals #7 Coved Labels die set.  These are intended for labels but as soon as I saw them I thought that they were the perfect shape & size to use as tags!  To make them into a tag, I punched a hole in the top of one side and then added an eyelet as reinforcement for the hole.   I love how well the earth and banner layered on top of the tag!

Thank you for visiting today! I hope that this project inspires some creative Valentine treats
