Happy almost Heart Day!

If you haven't whipped out some Valentine's treats yet for your littles, here are a couple of easy peasy ideas using the brand new scalloped tag topper punch from the Occasions catalog.  Of course, this punch is designed to create tags with, but doesn't it make the cutest little Valentine's favors ever? This was not my original idea -- I saw several versions on Pinterest, I believe, but added my own twist to it here.  You simply take a strip of card stock slightly narrower than 2", punch each end with the tag topper punch, score it in two places to accommodate whatever treat you plan to put inside, embellish the front, and tie the top ends together with a ribbon and there is your super cute little Valentines favor!  So easy, but yet so super cute!

Just one more little favor to share -- featuring the purse die.  This one is more girly, of course, but quite easy to make and oh so sweet!  I used the largest SU scallop circle punch to create the little scalloped edge around the purse flap. Also featured here, is the new Petite Petals stamp set and punch from the Occasions catalog.  Quite a dainty little sweet flower -- perfect for a small accent, or for adding to the center of a larger stamped flower.

Happy almost Valentines day to you and yours!
