Valentine Stamp Camp


Well, not so much stamping, but Valentine all the same! We will be doing these projects on Super Bowl Sunday. I cased Becky for the hot tamale container, Sonja for the peppermint patty box, and several people on SCS for the heart-fold envelope. The hot tamale box is made from acetate 8" X 8 1/2". It is scored at 2" on the 8" side, and at 2", 4", 6", and 8" on the 8 1/2" side. A box top and bottom were made from the new TAC Miss Moxie cardstock. I used terrifically tacky tape on the bottom of the acetate box to hold the ribbon and box bottom on. I punched slots through the box lid, ran my ribbon through and knotted. You could personalize more by adding a tag. The patty box follows Sonja's template and hold 2 patties. I used some Art Warehouse Limited Edition Valentine stamps, but will use a TAC set for my camp. The heart-fold envelope is a 6" X 6" square with each corner folded into the center and each adorned with a die cut heart. Inside, I also cased Sonja's idea using the little Valentine credit cards from Walmart. I think this will make an adorable set for anyone!

Girl, you've been busy creating. Wish I could say the same for me. I really like that Moxie paper, I might have to get some.
