Hello there friends! Welcome to this stop on the Reverse Confetti blog hop!
Our challenge for today’s hop is “ABC Valentine” – which means Anything But a Card! Now, I don’t know about you, but I feel like “Valentine” is synonymous with “Card,” but I’m never one to back down from a challenge. If I can’t make a card, I’m going to share some candy!
I started by using my Silhouette to cut out these cute milk carton boxes. The heart shaped die in the “Puppy Love Confetti Dies” set was the perfect size to cut a heart/hole in the front of each box. I backed the open space with a 2”x2” piece of transparency paper so the candy wouldn’t fall out.
After allowing the glue to dry, I began assembling the boxes and filling them with delicious candy hearts. Then I started working on the gift tags.
I stamped four puppies (three boys and a girl) onto some patterned paper – white with text. Then I pulled out my pastel pencils and added some color to each puppy. After they were colored, I used the coordinating die to cut them out.
Next, I cut four tags with the square tag die (listed below). I also stamped extra puppies onto patterned paper and cut out the bows, attaching them over the white puppy bows.
I added the puppies, the “I love you” paper to the tag bases and tied them to the treat cartons.
I love being able to create fun and unique packaging options for store-bought treats!
