more valentine packaging


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.


mini hearts...


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!

  2. Soooo pretty!!

    Have a wonderful V-Day... We usually make it about the kids, because our anniversary was last week - so we'll just have a fun heart-shaped dinner at home.

    Have a good date!
