A Valentine Treat

Valentine's Day is coming up fast and it's time to get serious about planning for this special day! With all the hectic schedules, I'm sure "simple" sounds like a good idea to most. With that in mind, here's a quick and simple pouch made to fit the "fun size" candies. Click here to download a pattern. Just cut along the solid lines and fold on the dotted lines. Use double stick tape along the two 1/4" tabs and simply adhere to form this pouch:

I was able to find these paper clips at Office Depot...the colored tabs come already attached!! All I had to do was stamp my sentiment (stamp #5029 Floral Heart and #1109 Valentine Hi), and add my two peeking pals (#5043 Peeking Monkey and #5053 Peeking Penguin) on pop dots, put some candy in the pouch and put the clip on. I also added an accent to the bottom of the pouch using stamp #6004 (Funky Flower with a bling!!!).

Here's a close-up of the tabs:

If you're free this Saturday (January 24), I'll be doing a make 'n take at the Kaimuki Ben Franklin from 1:00 - 2:30 pm. The theme is "Pretty in Pink", to benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation...stop by and support a good cause!!
