Chocolate Hugs and Kisses


I can't believe it's January 31st already -- where did the month go? I'm definitely in a Valentine mood now -- only two more weeks! Here are a couple of treat holders I made this morning. The window tin is from Gina K. Designs, and the Ball jar once held Classico pasta sauce. The stamp set is Hugs and Kisses, from the Kim Hughes Collection by Cornish Heritage Farms.

The Ball jar was covered in Elegant paper from the Serendipity Blue Boutique Collection by Sassafrass Lass. I used several circle punches, then I added details to the scallops with a white gel pen. The chocolate image was stamped on the center circle with Chocolate Chip Craft Ink and heat embossed with Clear EP. The tag sentiment was stamped in Chocolate Chip ink, and one end was rounded with a Corner Rounder. I sponged around the edges of the center circle and tag with Real Red ink.

I covered the window tin with paper from the Prints Pack (SU! Level 1 hostess set). I stamped and cut out the hearts and mounted them on dimensionals. The lips image was stamped on the window in black Stazon, and the tag was stamped in Real Red and Basic Black. I clipped the corners on one end and sponged around the edges with Real Red ink. The heart eyelets on the tags are from Close to My Heart.

The window tin will be given away, but the jar will find a home on a table in my house (and hopefully I'll not eat all of the chocolate before the kids get home from school!). I hope this gives you some ideas for fun treat holders -- I'd love to see any that YOU make! Have a great day -- thanks for stopping by today! :)
