Welcome to our February Blog Hop – this month we are featuring all things Valentine’s. How about Di’s project – cute, eh?
In December, I had a bunch of Holiday treats and holders left over from a craft fair I participated in and I was looking for a way to sell them. I asked if I could put them on display in the salon my daughter works in. (Vickie’s Personal Touch Salon in Wauconda, IL; Ask for Vera!) Now, being made with Stampin’ Up! product, they were, of course, cute, but I was floored at how quickly the products sold! Several of their customers asked if there would be any Valentine’s items for sale, so I went to work to give the customers what they wanted! I made a few different types of treat holders to see what would sell best – here’s one of them:
I brought in some 4 oz quilted jelly jars, filled them with Valentine’s Day M & M’s, and decorated them Stampin’ Up! style! The layers on the lid are: Bottom: Melon Mambo cut with the 2 1/8″ layering circle framelit die. Middle: Red Glimmer Paper cut with the 2″ circle punch. Top: Whisper White cut with the 1 3/4″ circle punch. On the top layer, I stamped the “Sealed With a Kiss” from the Sealed With Love stamp set in Versamark and used Real Red Glitter Stampin’ Embossing Powder. Once that was heat set, I stamped the lips image in Melon Mambo ink.
Around the jar band, I used a length of 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon in Real Red and concealed the seam with a bow made of the same ribbon. I stamped the heart from the Sealed With Love set in Versamark ink onto Melon Mambo cardstock and diecut it with the largest heart die from the Love Notes Framelits set. It was attached beneath the bottom layer of the lid assembly with a piece of Baker’s Twine. Then the band was screwed on.
Keep your eyes peeled for some additional Sale-a-Bration items in a couple of weeks! I got to preview them today and I can’t wait to get my hands on them!!!
