Valentine’s Gifts – Lollipop Holder

By Cards, Room Decor

Hi All,

I’m always looking for a fun new way to present otherwise ordinary things. This project features 9 embossed red tulips that are incased around a white picket fence. Each flower is actually a lollipop treat for a friend. I had a similar concept going though the holidays with my candy cane gingerbread house .

I used my silhouette electronic cutting machine to cut each of the pieces and then assembled after doing some dry embossing. Then I added a few ribbons and this sentiment as final embellishments. The lollipops were wrapped in red tissue paper before being encased in a paper tulip. I think it adds for extra dimension.  I wish I could hand each of you a rose – they are seriously too cute! I think these would be great as little teacher gifts for Valentine’s Day or as a birthday treat for a student.

Valentine’s For Classroom or Workplace

By Cards

Hi all,

I’m just about wrapping up on all my Valentine’s Day cards for the week but wanted to share the last few card designs I created. It’s been a year of puns for the most part. As you may have noticed I’ve created quite a number of cards with silly/goofy sentiments that kids are getting a good laugh out of. So I wanted to create one more set of pun cards that are more of a boy theme (but honestly, a girl could totally love these)!

These robots are created with multiple layers of vellum and have a TON of blingy details. They are also mounted up on some solid foam dimensional. My inner card-maker would love to have hidden the foam tape so it’s not so easily visible, however, I feel like kids would LOVE the opportunity to lift these bad boys off the card and stick ’em to something else. So I added a bit of tape to the backs for such a scenario.il_570xN.725068043_as6u

Here’s the inside. I added a to/from line for kids to fill out. I love a bit of personal touch to any card.

Next, I wanted to create a quick set of workplace, adult-friendly cards. These are probably my favorite of all my Valentine’s day cards. There’s just something about chalkboard art & kraft brown paper that I love. I added a pop of color by creating coordinating red envelopes.
