Sometimes you want to give a little gift to show you care. So I thought it would be fun to send hugs and kisses in one sweet treat package. As today’s project shows, it really doesn’t take long to create something special.
This project all started with the pretty “sending hugs” sentiment from the retiring Perfectly Framed Stamp Set.
Taking some Very Vanilla Card I first wiped it with the retiring Embossing Buddy to remove any oils and static. Then I stamped the sentiment using VersaMark ink. Next I sprinkled the sticky ink with retiring Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and tapped off the excess. Then after removing a few stray specks, I melted the rest with my Heat Tool set on 2 (high).
With the sentiment done I then turned to the coordinating (but not retiring) Ornate Frames Dies. I cut out the sentiment using the appropriate plainer die in the set. Then using the corresponding fancy die I cut out some Bermuda Bay Card. To help get all the tiny pieces out of the fancy die-cut I used my Take Your Pick tool with the die brush attachment.
To assemble my treat package I first filled a retiring 3″ x 6″ Gusseted Cellophane Bag with Hershey’s Kisses. After folding over the top I secured it in placed on the back with some sellotape.
Next using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow) layered a strip of Crushed Curry Card onto a wider strip of Very Vanilla Card. Then I wrapped the layered strip around the bag to create a ‘belly band’. I glued the ends of the strip to each other at the back with liquid glue so that the belly band could slide off the bag.
Finally with a little more liquid glue I attached the layered sentiment and my hugs and kisses were ready to gift.
See I told you it was quick!
