Guest Star Stamper Project: V-Day Treat Set

Well Here it is!! This is the project that I submitted that was selected for a Guest Star Stamper at Papertrey Ink!! Which can also be seen >>HERE<< href="http://www.papertreyink.com/stamps_sweetlove.html">SWEET LOVE. Once I started to use this set I just couldn't stop. I think I also told them in one of my emails that there should be a PTIA group. A PTIA Group? A PaperTrey Inkers Anonymous group,for thoses of us that are thouroughly addicted. All in Favor say "I". LMBO!!

So here's the scoop:
1. The mini cards. Since I don't have the nestabilities (that I think I may need to get) lol I used my coluzzle to cut out the cards. I folded my black c/s in half and I just made sure that the size I was using was hanging over the fold and then I cut through both layers. I did the same thing with one size smaller on white c/s. Then I stamped the oval design from the SL set in ruby red craft (SU) and added stardus e.p. then I stamed the sentiment in black and added the little heart brads from MM. I cut it out attached it to the black card and then I used my distressing tool to rough the edge of the black. Last, I added the "for you"to the inside.

2. The mini purses (to the left of the cards) all I did for these was cut a small strip of c/s and place a hershey nugget in the center of it. Then I folded the cardstock up and over to make a little flap in the front. Then I attched the heart. Again the heart is stamped in ruby red craft and stardust e.p. and the heart brad again as a "clasp" then I tied ribbn through the top and tied a simple knot.

3.The Nugget Tin: I filled the nugget tin with hershey's treatsize cookies-n-cream bars. First I wrapped them in a text filled paper that I stamped. I started by stamping the ruby red "sweet Love" in the center and added the stardust e.p. then I added the black all around. I just alternated the rows to get the staggered pattern. Afer I filled the tin, I made a band. I cute the strip 1 x 10 inches (I think) and then I took the guide off my corner rounder and made both edges scalloped. Then I took some red ribbon and I ctually put a bit of snail on both ends and stuck it to my grid paper so it wouldn't move and so the paper would catch any ink. I took the little flourish from the set and stamped it in black stazon. Then I tied everythign around and added the heart again.

4. Holding it all together- I took a plain white bag wrapped ribbon and added the tag and there you have it. The perfect Valentine's treat set. The whole set I made had 8 treat bars, 8 mini "clamshell style" cards, mini purses and the whole works fit perfectly into the gift bag!!
