Love Is In The Air - Handmade Treats

I am excited to join my "Blog with Friends" peeps in an effort to highlight this month's theme, "Love is in the Air". At the bottom of this post you will find links to their blogs and fabulous theme-aligned posts.
Of course this theme called for some handmade Valentine-themed goodies. The card was kept simple and you might think the hearts are on top of the white piece of cardstock, but they are not. Instead, I used our Heart Thin Cuts to cut the hearts out of the white cardstock. Then, I used patterned paper to back the hearts for a simple and attractive look.
The pillow box on the right, gifted to me by my friend Shari Froeming, is a clear pillow box filled with cherry sours (yum). A simple tag, cut from the Cricut, and some hearts cut from our Red and Silver Glitter Paper provide for a cute and inexpensive gift. Of course, ribbon is always necessary to finish it off!

I hope you like these DIY handmade treats, perfect for Valentine's Day. They can also be altered to fit various themes throughout the year and are super simple to make. 

Below you will find links to my friends who showcase some fabulous themed items on their blogs with you! Check them out and give them some "love"!

  1. I love getting hand made cards and gift tags, the thought and effort shows. The pillow box filled with treats is such a great idea too.

  2. That is so cute! I love it. Handmade cards and gifts are so thoughtful.

  3. Now THIS looks like something I could make. I really do need to get a Cricut.

  4. I love paper so much! I live in Japan now and have a lot of rice paper. This post is giving me inspiration to make some cards and spread the love. thanks for the idea.
