For this months blog hop I have created two different treat/gift holders for Valentines Day using different stamps and supplies available at the Paper Wings Productions shop.

 For my first treat bag I used a small glassine bag and stamped out the heart image from the stamp set Sophie in VersaMark ink and then used some Lindy's Stamp Gang Embossing Powder to heat emboss it.  Once the bag cooled down I went back in and stamped out the word love that also comes from the Sophie stamp set with some brown Staz-On ink.  To finish off my bag I made a simple embellishment out of tulle, pattern paper and a wood veneer from the December Nesting Components Kit.

For my next treat holder I cut two heart shapes using my Cricut and ran it through an embossing folder.  I adhered the two hearts together with a little adhesive and by punching holes around the heart and stringing some twine through the holes.  I used  my Cricut and my punches to cut the shapes to create my flower in the center of the heart out of newspaper and then sprayed the pieces with some Lindy's Sidekick Nantucket Pearls.  To finish it off I added a brad that comes in the January Nesting Components Kit and added a banner I stamped with a sentiment from the Valentine Wishes stamp set.
Thanks so much for stopping today and I hope you have enjoyed all the fabulous projects the Design Team has shared!  Please head on over to the Paper Wings Productions blog and leave a comment for your chance to win!
