Big Shot Die Cut Machine: Sweet Hearts

Did you know you could create a 3D heart from Stampin' Up!'s Petal Die?

Start by die cutting a petal using the Big Shot die cut machine. Crease two adjacent tabs as shown above.

Turn the petal over and place sticky strip on the two tabs.

Stamp a greeting as shown and punch out a heart from designer paper. I used Real Red ink for the stamping and the so sparkly paper is from the Sending Love Specialty paper in the Occasions mini catalog (item #117153). I attached the heart with a dimensional to lift it off the piece. The greeting is in the Holiday Best hostess stamp set you can earn free when you host a Stampin' Up! party. Give me a call to find out how easy it is to be a hostess!

Strip off the red liner and fold back the two bottom tabs along the crease line. Position the heart on a base measuring 5-1/2" x 4-14" inches.

I punched the base using the new Pinking Hearts Border punch before I placed the heart on it. The heart tag was made by printing onto Very Vanilla card stock and punching out with the Heart punch.

Here's a view from the side. You can see how the box is formed by sticking down the tabs.

I filled the heart with treats, then slipped it into one of our Medium Flat Cellophane bags. A little SNAIL adhesive on the back closes the bag.

The finished bag. Now I only have 21 to go! LOL!

I made these treats for my daughter Mikelle's Kindergarten class. Mikelle is a gifted teacher who teaches in Athens, GA.

Teaching runs in the family — two of my daughters are teachers and I love teaching paper arts! Check out my class schedule here.
