Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek - Day 1


Good morning!  It's time to have a little look-see at Taylored Expressions latest release and today I get to show you the set, Love Everywhere!  Taylor challenged us to make a little Valentine treat that would be easy to mass produce and I came up with this little folded treat "bag" for my daughter to hand out to her classmates.

 
I started out by using some items from the Valentine Key Ingredients.  The patterned paper is Be Loved from My Mind's Eye and I made the little treat holder by taking a piece of 6x2 Be Loved paper and scoring it at 1/2", 2-3/8", 3-5/8", and 5-1/2".  I place a little mini candy bar in the center section with glue dots and folded the paper up around it.  The top 1/2" is taped together, the corners are punched with the ticket corner punch,  and I added a little bow.  I inked up some chipboard hearts, which are also included in the KI this month, and added them to the front of the little treat pouch.



I also made a fun little 3x3 card to coordinate with the treats and used this super cute little balloon and sentiment that perfectly curves over the top of the balloon - love this!  You are going to be completely wowed by this set, so don't dilly daddle - get on over to see what the rest of the Baker's Dozen have cooked up for you today with Love Everywhere!
