Valentines Candy Holders

These are the Valentines that my son will be giving to his classmates next week. They are super easy to make. I just took a 7-3/4"x2-1/2" sheet of Cranberry Cardstock and scored it at 3-1/2" and 4-1/4". Then I stamped a tag from CTMH's Gift Tags stamp set on white cardstock. On one side I stamped a heart from CTMH's Season Thoughts stamp set, colored it in with a Cranberry marker and added some Prisma Glitter. (I seem to be adding glitter to everything lately.) Then I stamped the sentiment from CTMH's Random Thoughts. I had my son sign his name on the other side. (That was not an easy task! He got bored after doing two, so we had to spread it out over a few days.) Then I put some candy hearts in a little zip lock baggie and folded up the sides of the cardstock candy holder, punched a hole in the top, added some ribbon and we were finally done.

Cardstock: CTMH Cranberry, White Daisy Inks: CTMH Cranberry, Black Other: White Organdy Ribbon, Prisma Glitter, Plastic Zip Lock Baggie from Walmart
