My Stampin' Up! Classes

A Happy Heart twist favor...

Take a 6" square of your favorite designer paper, stamp it (here with the Happy Heart stamp set) and put some sticky strip on one end to make a toilet paper-looking roll.

Add a little adhesive at the bottom and pinch the roll together there, then roll it about 5 clicks through a paper crimper.

The stamp set has a perfect tag for the occasion, which we stamped in Basic Brown and colored a bit with a Regal Rose marker.

We put a bit of candy inside and pinched together the top the opposite way we did the bottom, crimping it (this time without adhesive so the recipient can enjoy the treat inside without ripping the container apart!), and punching a hole through the tag and top of the container to add a square rhinestone brad.

As a final touch, we added a knot of 5/8" Chocolate Chip grosgrain around the middle.

Trivia: St. Valentine is not only the patron saint of love. He has many other duties. He is also the patron saint of bee keepers, and greeting card manufacturers. He also wards off fainting and epilepsy, and protects travelers and happy marriages. (Source:
