Valentine's Day has always been a little tricky ... to me, a Valentine has always been reserved for the most special person in my life, my husband Jack. But with so many ways to "feel the love" I've decided to broaden my horizons this year. In this day and age, managers have to be careful about expressing "love" to their staff, but today's project is more an expression of appreciation.
I cut some Whisper White thick card stock into 8 pieces measuring 2" x 5 1/2" and then added some designer series paper from the Painted With Love collection, leaving a small border around the edges. Then I used the Scalloped Tag Topper punch to create the tag top. I added some Whisper White Organza Ribbon to the top.
I stamped the striped heart from the Heart Happiness stamp set with Pink Pirouette ink, added a tiny heart from Heart Happiness and the "Life is Better..." stamp from the Petal Palette stamp set over the heart with Berry Burst ink. The heart has a matching die in the Lots to Love Box Framelits set. I popped the heart up with dimensionals and added an Andes Cherry Jubilee chocolate to the bottom of the tag with a glue dot. Place the glue dot across the seam of the foil to hold the chocolate closed.
This a super quick and easy way to show some appreciation to those you work with. I hope you give it a try!
