Hello and Happy Monday, ‘Fetti Fans!

I mentioned in the January Countdown to Confetti that I am so happy to be back to creating again.  Now, I just need to find more time to do it!  Getting back in the swing of things has been great, but I’ve been playing a bit of catch up on stuff that I needed to get done.  My assistant, Jacky, is from Switzerland and she has been there for the last 6 weeks so that has added to the craziness around here, too.  Needless to say, I’ll be glad when she is back!  Fortunately, I did manage to squeeze in a little bit of creative last week and I am here to share that with you today.

My mom recently moved to Texas and she asked if I could take her to Michael’s.  I was happy to take her there and just happened to find myself wandering down a few aisles (you know how that goes!).  I came across the cutest little candy jars in the wedding/party area and I knew right away that I had to make them into little Valentine treat containers…with a Reverse Confetti touch, of course!!

The tag was created with the stitched square in the SCALLOPED SQUARES Confetti Cuts die set (cut from PREMIER POLAR WHITE cardstock).  From there, I added hearts cut from PIGGY BANK and SALSA cardstock using the smaller heart in the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set.  The “Happy Heart Day” sentiment is from the new HEART FILLED SENTIMENTS and it is stamped in SALSA ink.

I punch a hole in stitched square and then added it to the jar with Charcoal Stripe TWINE and various ribbons I have in my crafty stash.

I filled the glass jars with a mix of Hershey Hugs and Kisses and then kids came in and oooh’d and aaaah’d at these.   I’m pretty sure that they will be headed to school with them for their teachers on Valentines Day (that was kinda the plan all along anyways)!

Here’s a shot from the top…

I chose the “Happy Heart Day” for this project because it’s an appropriate sentiment to give to teachers, friends and neighbors.  The HEART FILLED SENTIMENTS set has lots of other sentiments to choose from if you do want to get a little more lovey-dovey.

One more shot of these darlings all together…
