Love Blossoms Thank You Gift

I had a very special set of thank you gifts to make for this coming week. 

Given the time of year, I've gone for a valentine theme using the Love Blossoms DSP and Rose Red card stock, to create this pretty little Curvy Keepsake gift.

I stamped the sentiment in Rose Red ink using the Another Thank You photopolymer set, and punched it out with the Decorative Label Punch, using only the top half of the punch to give a bit of a different effect.

A little touch of sparkle from the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper finishes it off nicely, and brings together all of the colours.

I found the best adhesive to use when sticking onto glimmer paper is the Tombow Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue. I apply the glue directly onto the glimmer paper, then add the piece I want to adhere and hold down for a few extra seconds so that the glue makes a strong bond. Mini Glue Dots also work well with glimmer paper, and are a great alternative to wet glue.

I made twenty of these little treat boxes this afternoon whilst the wind and rain howled outside my craft room window. 

The project isn't quite finished just yet though. I'm going to fill the boxes with little home-made chocolate hearts and give them out later this week. 

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed this cute little project.
