Hi Stamping Friends!

All this week I'm featuring Valentine's from my Too Cool Team shoebox swap!  Today, I've got a very special Valentine's treat bag created by Rita Berning!

Rita's project combines a myriad of fabulous elements for awesome Valentine's collage on a treat holder! 

Mini Treat Bag—Although you can't see it very well in my photo because it's white card stock, the foundation of this project is a bag that's die-cut and assembled from the new Mini Treat Bag Thinlit.  This adorable petite bag measures just 3-5/8" x 5-1/4", but it's still big enough to hold the Note Cards With Envelopes, Ghirardelli Chocolates or even a gift card!  Rita stuck a tag inside with a gift card for her sample (and those extra red ribbons sticking out of the top are part of her tag that I didn't get in a photo).

Decorative Strips—Rita decorated the bottom of the bag with several striped elements.  First, there's a 1/2" wide Real Red strip that's been punched with a hearts border framelit in the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit set.  (There are LOTS of fun dies in that set!) 

Next, she added two patterns of the Stacked With Love Washi Tape.  And, then she added a What's Up arrow punch from Silver Glimmer Paper.  Love this cool combination!

Heart Collage—Rita punched out a Real Red Sweetheart Punch shape and added a What's Up Silver Glimmer arrow behind it.  The arrow shape isn't really that long.  She cut it in half and repositioned it on either side of the heart.  She added some Rhinestone Jewels accents along the top before layering it over a white Sweetheart punched shape that was inked directly with Real Red ink.  The entire layered element is popped up with Dimensionals.

Sweet Sentiment Collage—Rita finished the mini treat bag décor with a Chalk Talk sentiment inked in Real Red and die-cut with the coordinating Chalk Talk Framelits.  It's layered on another Chalk Talk die-cut shape, cut from Stacked With Love DSP.  The top of the second layer is tied with both 1/8" Real Red Taffeta Ribbon and 1/8" Silver Ribbon.

Glimmer Hearts—After punching a couple of Red Glimmer Hearts with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, Rita adhered one of them to a silver Mini Metallic Clothespin and used it to attach the two layers.
