Scraps to Treasures - Valentine Treats

Welcome to the Scraps to Treasure Valentine Treats Blog Hop.  Scraps to Treasure is a group of crafty people who take their leftover scraps and come up with beautiful and fun projects that center around a monthly theme.  This month's theme is Valentine Treats; our crafters were put to task in creating something that used only scraps, but was also Valentine-Treat related.  Jessi Buehrle at My Life in Arts N Crafts (http://mylifeinartsncrafts.blogspot.com/) is our hostess for this hop, and is giving away some goodies.  To be entered to win this fabulous prize, you must...

Now let's see what Valentine treats await us!
We were asked to create a Valentine Treat Bag, Topper, or Container - of course, using scraps.  I created a treat bag holder using cream cardstock embossed with circles, with a decorative punched border.  I used a Valentine image (from Graphic 45 Place in Time) I had left over from Valentine cards I made for my local customers.  I matted the image with Peacock Blue Glitter Ritz - embellished with a flower given to me by Avania Floral Embellishments at 2012 CHA - topped off with a ribbon.  The package contains some red hot hard candies in a bag.
