I'm taking a break from progress report writing to share another project with you from the Valentine class. This a a sweet treat.
To make this treat, I used a sizzix die cut (non SU) called "card, heart". I actually don't think it would make much of a card, because it is only about 2 1/2 inches tall and 1 1/2 inches wide. Tiny card!! But I made it into a treat holder by scoring parallel lines on either side of the vertical score lines. By creasing on my score lines, instead of the one the die impressed, I was able to put candy inside and have enough depth to contain the treat.
I started out by using a white gel pen around the edges of the heart but decided it did not present the heart as I had planned so I added sponging with white craft ink. I used white grosgrain ribbon to tie the whole thing closed. I stamped the greeting and then I wanted the greeting to be a rectangle, instead of a square, so punched it twice with the postage stamp punch. The greeting is layered on a tag punch. The inside of the treat was exactly the right size to hold three Andes candies.
