Valentine's Day Surprises

This "Hallmark" holiday has never been one of my favourites and so I don't do as much as I do for other holidays.  But this year I used my Cricut and my doodlecharm cartridge to make quick treat bags for my family.  I will put them out at dinner one day over the weekend.

I bought red bags at Michaels and cut out a scalloped brown heart at 2 1/4" and a pink heart at 2".  I layered them together and stamped with  chocolate stamp pad from CTMH using a Michaels $1.50 stamp.  I filled the bags with a few treats and then folded them over and punched holes in which I placed a ribbon.  I think they turned out cute. 

This is the only card that I made for Valentine's Day.  I used the Wild Card cricut cartridge to make the heart card and used the layer feature for the 2 other large hearts.  I threaded red ribbon through all the tiny holes and then tied the ends into a bow.  The dangling heart is made with a Creative Memories punch and is attached with embroidery floss. 

Thanks for stopping by and I wish all of you a Happy Valentine's Day!!
