Happy Friday!! If you are still trying to figure out what to give for Valentine's Day (which is next week by the way!) Today's project is a quick and easy Valentine gift idea featuring Stampin' Up's Sealed With Love stamp set and Sweet and Sassy Framelits to create this cute Valentine treat bag!
How To Make This Stamped Valentine treat bag:
This really is a super easy Valentine gift idea! Take a cellophane bag and fill with some Valentine colored treats- I found these Smarties at my local bulk food store. Fold the bag top and use the Handheld Stapler to keep the bag top closed.
Now, because I made a few of these, I used a whole sheet of cardstock that I scored and folded in half lengthwise. If you are only making one, just size it accordingly but you will want to score and fold the cardstock to create a 'card' that you will cut in a heart shape with the Sweet and Sassy Framelits dies and the Big Shot. I actually used the largest and second largest heart dies on mine, but you can use whatever size you need to fit the bag you are using. Just make sure the stamps you want to use will fit the heart. If you don't like to waste cardstock, just use your die to roughly measure where you need to fold the cardstock.
The folded cardstock was then run through the Big Shot, making sure to not cut through the whole folded line. This would be a great place to use the Magnetic Platform so that the die does not shift when you place the cutting plate on top. You want to end up with a heart cutout that folds open to create a topper for the Valentine treat bag.
Stamp the die cut heart with the Happy Valentine's Day stamp from the Sealed With Love stamp set.
The heart flourish from the Sealed With Love stamp set was bent in the curved shape before placing on the acrylic block and then stamped around the curve of the heart tops.
Place the cellophane bag inside the heart bag topper and use the Handheld Stapler to secure it onto the bag.
That's it! So simple. Of course, if I wanted to spend more time on these, I could add ribbon, Rhinestones, maybe even create a layered heart die cut! If you don't like to see the exposed staples, you could use Tear & Tape Adhesive to adhere both sides of the bag topper to the cellophane bag.
