here we go! i'm back with a few more packaging ideas for all of your Valentine sweets. i carried the same colors and heart theme over from yesterday's packages but instead of wrapping chocolate boxes in scrapbook paper, i put the treats in glassine envelopes.
the first one is a 4x4 envelope on which i adhered a pink scallop die cut frame from Crate Paper's Fourteen collection. all of the coordinates are from Fourteen, actually.
i'm having a love affair with these tiny tags and little paper punches. they're so small and simple but there's something about them that compels me to keep making and using them. i layered a few elements here: the tags, a strip of lace, and a heart die cut. then i covered a mini clothespin with matching patterned paper (not washi tape this time!) and a button to attach the bundle to the envelope.
a few simple punched hearts in the lower corner and this envelope is ready for a card, a photo, a gift card...i can think of lots of items to put inside.
the next treat uses a 3x5.5 glassine bag. i wrapped lace and pink seam binding around the package and tucked half of a paper doily underneath them.
a typed vellum strip...
...and another tiny heart tag.
you may remember this decor from yesterday; i liked it so much on the box of chocolates that i made another one for this envelope of chocolates. there is another lace and ribbon wrap and doily but i removed the blue punched hearts and used a heart toothpick flag instead.
my last treat is another 4x4 envelope filled with a garland of pink hearts.
more layers of embellishments, attached with 2 bitty clothespins.
i've been making a lot of these heart garlands lately, too. initially i was going to wrap them around the packages, but in the process of putting everything together and testing out different goodies inside them, i decided i liked the way you could see all the hearts and gold thread through the thin layer of glassine instead.
tomorrow is Valentine's Day...do you have plans yet? Hoss and i will probably go out to dinner--it could end up being the last time we get to go out alone for a very long time so even though we don't know where we're going yet, we'd better make the most of it!
thank you so much for stopping by today!
