Crafty Secrets linky party!








Hellllllllllo to you!   Have you stayed away from the crud that is going around endlessly?  I unfortunately have fallen prey to it.   Just will not go away!   Thank goodness for working ahead on some things or I would really be behind.   This month's Crafty Secrets challenge is of course Valentine related.  I couldn't stop at just one project using the Vintage Valentine kit.   I have had so much fun this season making Valentine wands and gift packaging.  1) I first diecut some heart layers using my Spellbinder dies using fun patterns and colors.  I used foam adhesive to add dimension between layers.  2) I than added my sweet images and started embellishing with tinsel and ribbons.  3)  From there add some fun homemade paper fringe.  Sooo easy to make by folding layers of crepe paper or tissue paper accordion style and than sew down the middle of all layers.  After that simply snip through each layer on either side making sure NOT to cut clear through .  From here scrunch it all up in your hands and your done.  4) After adding your paper fringe add washi tapes or borders and any little buttons you would like to add.  Embellish to your hearts content and your done!  The paper bags are perfect for candy kisses and the wand could top a valentine cake or do what I love and nestle it in a old vintage flower frog.   Hope you enjoy....and stay away from the crud! Make sure to visit the other ladies and their wonderful creations!  hugs, cherry

Hi Cherry, the way you scalloped and layered the hearts with papers from the kit on each of your goodie bags looks so darn cute! Then all your embellishments add the perfect touch from the shabby ribbon to those red glitter clothes.
