As promised, I am showing you my daughters valentine's for this year. I saw these out on the Stampin' Connections forum, which is a place for Stampin'Up! demonstrators to connect with one another and share ideas. The ones I saw were actually made for Halloween, but I thought the idea was so cute, that it could be used for any occasion.
I used mostly scrap designer series papers for these. The piece of brushed silver paper that I crimped to look like the metal piece that holds the eraser on is still current. The tip of the pencil is a Hershey's Kiss, the eraser is a Rolo, and the base of the pencil is a roll of fruit flavored Mentos.
The tag was made with the 2 3/8" scallop circle punch, the 1 3/4" circle punch and the Owl punch. The owl is stamped using the FREE sale-a-bration stamp set called Punch Bunch. The heart on the owl is punched from the wonderful new paper in the Occasions mini catalog called Glimmer paper. LOVE that paper. Imagine, a paper full of glitter that doesn't rub off all over the place! The heart is punched using the owl punch also.
I really had fun making these and my daughter can't wait to pass them out tomorrow.
