The January 2016 Paper Pumpkin Kit arrived and as always I was super excited to rip it open. You can check out my excitement here! It is called Cute Conversations and after playing with it, I totally get it. They are little conversation hearts. I love it! I will admit though when I first opened it and saw the banner and treat bags, I was a little skeptical. I didn’t really want to create a banner that would only be up for a week or two and I only needed a few treats….or so I thought. I started to play with the kit and create the treats like the instructions where you adhere two hearts together.
I didn’t really like the way they turned out. The opening was really small and the treats weren’t staying in. Also, if you put a few kisses in there, they will be spilling all over. So I put the candy in some cellophane bags, used the Mint Macaron Baker’s Twine to tie them up and added them to the hearts.
I needed treats for all of my nieces and nephews so I started with those. I put the candy into a Cellophane Bag. I stamped on the conversation heart with the stamps and Watermelon Wonder ink. I adhered the heart to the front of the bag and clipped a clothespin on with a little piece of sequins. On the little banners, I stamped To/From and wrote their names. I added adhesive to the back of it and adhered it to the left side. I love how they turned out!! I had so much fun making these, I made a few more that say You’re Sweet so I could pass them out to random people at the Post Office, Bank, Store and other places I go to. Why not share a little love?? 🙂
I had lots of the little banners left over and still some candy that I had to get packaged up before I ate it all. I wrapped the little banner on a cellophane bag and tied some ribbon on the top. Super cute and simple!!!
I wanted to create a few cards as well to send out for Valentine’s Day so here are my Conversation Heart Cards. I just added a few hearts and stamped. I added some of the loose sequins to the card with the Fine Tip Glue Pen! They are super cute and I love how they turned out. I still have some banner left and tons of ribbon and sequins. I love how these kits come with so much goodie!
