My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Valentine Treat

Hi...It's Monday!

I hope you all had a great weekend...Today the Lindsay's Stamp Stuff team is bringing you Valentine's Day treat ideas. Mine is crazy simple. That's not necessarily bad when you are in a time crunch, right?

I made these candy bar pull treats for my niece's Valentine care package. They hold a regular size Hearshy bar and has a simple layered heart embellishment.

The heart image comes from the Recipe Set from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff. How that for versatility in stamps? I changed the color before printing out the heart and then simply colored the buttons on it with my marker. Then layered it with some punched out paper pieces. (I thought I would hold off on any glitter...I think I over use it in my projects...lol!)

Here are the dimensions I used for this treat holder:

1 piece of patterned paper 6"x 6"
Scored at 1/2" and 3 1/4".

Tape along bottom and side as shown.

Then I ran the bottom 1/2" or so through my crimper.

Punch a hole through the top of the holder and cut a piece of ribbon 2 times the length of the holder itself. About 12"-14" in this case. Thread the ribbon through the holes, insert candy bar, and tie a bow. You can then make the candy bar slide in and out.

Hope you liked this little treat and stop by the rest of the team blogs to see what other sweet treats await you!


Thanks for stopping by...Have a good one!

This is a great idea! Your niece will love it! Simple is good, especially when they are still as cute as these are. I never thought to change the color of the image. I am going to have to try that one day soon.

Enjoy your week!
