This week is off to a great start

While I had to work Saturday, I had Sunday and Monday to catch up.  It's always nice to have a few days away from work. 

Here are some things I worked on...

These little 2" boxes are easy and quick to decorate and they hold just the right amount of chocolate {for one} will power required for the recipient.  BUT will power is required for the one assembling them {I consumed two today!).

I also stitched up some brown paper sacks to hold Valentine's Day treats.  Here's a mini sack.  The printed paper is from the Yours Truly line by Echo Park.  The printwork was printed on Bazzill cardstock and punched with an EK Success circle punch.

Here's a mega sack {giving you more room for chocolate}.  I love incorporating white with the brown paper...and the doiley fit perfectly.

And another mega sack...this one is my favorite.  I used Bazzill printed paper for the band and the heart and printed "LOVE" on Bazzill cardstock.  The little bitty clothes pin and pennant is from American Craft

This pleated cup is glued to a chipboard base for added stability.  It'd be a great little Valentine Exchange item for an elementary school classroom, or even those "sweet" coworkers you work with. 

Hopefully all you local gals have signed up for the Scrappin Sampler at ETC this Saturday.  If you MIGHT just be making this. 
It's a mini brown paper sack filled with hard candies.  It's adorned with a glimmer misted tag that is topped with burlap and a fabric heart.  A couple of buttons, a glimmer misted paper flower, a teeny "Happy Valentine's Day" tag and assorted ribbon and lace are the final touches that were added to complete the make-n-take project.  This is one of three projects that you will leave with.  If you do come...act surprised like you haven't seen the project before.  Because it's tradition for us not to display the projects ahead of time.  :)  I will also be working from 5:30-9 Saturday night, so if you miss the Sampler, come see me Saturday nite.  We have LOTS of great Valentine paper that arrived recently...along with some other new scrapbooking products!
