So today I finally finish my goodies for the 3rd Annual Valentines Weddingbee Swap! I am really excited because this is the first time I make valentine stuff, don’t get me wrong, in Chile we do celebrate “El día de los enamorados” but it’s pretty different, the gifts are just between girlfriend/boyfriend, husband/wife kind of thing… SO I actually only bough cards on the past for this holiday.
After a few hours of work this is what I got for 3 of my lovely bees!
Since I had tons of cardboard at home because of the gigantic letters I’m making for the wedding, I choose to use recycle material and gather some Kraft paper, Martha puncher, red ribbon, Reeses chocolate and my sewing machine!
I started with the front of the little chocolate display.
I punch on stripes of normal copy white paper and sew it to the sides, cut hearts with some leftover red fabric and sew it too.
I also used the machine to draw another hearts on the center of one, and AMOR, the Spanish for LOVE on the second, and I choose to leave the 3rd with just one sewed heart.
After that I attached a long stripe of cardboard to my sewed an finish fronts, folded and cut a heart on the front.
After that I assembled everything by hot gluing 2 pieces on the sides and covering the hearts with Kraft paper. I also printed some “wishing you a sweet valentines” with my Weddingbee Icon :) I could not help it!!
I sealed the chocolate with plastic wrap just in case it melts, I don’t want them to get a big ugly mess! I put one of my clay flowers to make it prettier and a band of punched Kraft paper!
This babies are ready to go wish some lucky girls a SWEET valentine!!
Happy Valentine to everyone!! <3
