Heart Shaped Cookie Holder

After I saw those adorable little cookie holders on page 56 of the new catalog, I just had to make some of my own! I really like this idea, since it would be nice to have the kids hand out cookies rather than candy, but they are a bit more labor intensive than the easier treat boxes I posted earlier. Still pretty simple though, and only took a few minutes to make. You can put other treats in here too, besides cookies.

Here is the pattern:
Heart Shaped Cookie Holder.

I was able to fit two average size cookies in the holder, and I secured it inside with a couple of glue dots. I think next time I'll jazz it up with some more stamping or glitter!

Supplies used: Love You Much stamp set, Riding Hood Red, Vanilla and Chocolate Chip card stock,Candy Lane DSP, Chocolate Chip ink, Chocolate Chip stitched wide-grosgrain ribbon and 1/4" grosgrain, 1" and 1 1/4" circle punches, scallop edge punch, cellophane bag.

Valentines Projects

I *heart* Valentine's day! The fun colors, the hearts, the cheesy heart-shaped boxed chocolates, I look forward to it every year!

I couldn't resist the new Love You Much bundle! Until January 31st, you can get the Love You Much stamp set, Candy Lane designer series paper, and matching Heart to Heart punch for $41.48 - that's 20% off! It's the cutest stuff, and of course I used it for this month's stamp club projects.

I got the idea for the little Hersey treat pouches from my upline Beth. They're so quick and easy to make, and perfect for classroom treats or party favors. You can make four out of ONE sheet of cardstock, so it's economical too! They're pretty simple: Cut a piece of cardstock to 5" x 4.25". Score along the long side at 1.5", 3", and 4.5". Adhere Hershey kisses with adhesive, then fold together with adhesive - that's it! I'll post a short tutorial later.

The candle I found at a drug store for $2. I just wrapped with the Candy Lane paper, and added a tag. This and the matching card were gifts for my hostess.

Supplies used: Love You Much bundle, Very Vanilla, Close to Cocoa, Riding Hood Red and Pink Piourette cardstocks, quare, circle and photo corners punches, Pink Piourette and Riding Hood Red striped grosgrain ribbon.
