easy valentine gift idea

Good morning! I have a super easy valentine gift idea for you today. You know those fun boxes of candy hearts that you can get this time of year (right now they are 4 for $1 at my store)? Well, why not just wrap it with some patterned paper add a fun little tag and tie it all up with some ribbon?

I used Cosmo Cricket's Hey Sugar: Heart Strings, the SU! set called Happy Heart Day for the tag (along with my tag punches), and some chocolate chip satin ribbon. While you can't see it in the picture I used some Angel Wings Shimmez in the hearts that I got from limeLIGHT Papercrafts. Oh, and the ink is Rouge Colorbox Chalk cat eye. I really like that ink for the soft effect it gives. While they don't have my Rouge color limeLIGHT does carry the cat eye size of Colorbox...go check it out!

So...quick post today. I hope you like this idea! Have a super Friday everyone!
