To make the letters pop, you will need to cut 3 extra sets of letters in a contrasting color.  I chose Wisteria Wonder for today's Card.  I used the Large Letter Framelits Dies to cut my letters.

How to Make a Trio of Handmade Valentines

How to Make Valentine Gifts & Cards

Hello Friends,

I love Valentines Day.  It just another excuse to say "I Love You" with adorable paper crafts.  Today's trio of handmade Valentine Paper Crafts were all made with the ridiculously gorgeous Painted with Love Specialty Paper.  The splashes and swatches of Pinks, Purple, Coral and Gold are both trendy and beautiful.


DIY Popcorn Box

Give the Gift of Carmel Popcorn in an adorable Popcorn Box.  I made mine with the Popcorn Box die, the Ready to Pop Stamp Set and the Painted with Love Designer Paper.   See the Stampin' Up! Video below for the ins and outs of making a Popcorn Box.

The Ready to Pop Stamp Set and the Popcorn Box Dies also make adorable Baby Cards.  See the card that I sent to my Daughter-In-Law just before our Granddaughter, Lacy, was born.

DIY Love Notes

This cute little love note can be made in minutes.  It's the perfect size to pop in a lunch box or just about anywhere.  The Whisper White Narrow Note Cards & Envelope are super simple to make up and are an adorable size.  For today's Valentine, I cut a 2-1/4" x 4-1/4" pieces of Designer Paper.  Then cut 2 hearts with my Sweet & Sassy Dies.  I used the Flourishing Phrases stamp set to stamp both my heart and the inside "I Love You".  Because of the hinged system of my Stamparatus, I was able to neatly stamp the "I love you" 3 times in less than 2 minutes.  See a video of the Stamparatus in action Here.

 
Cute & Simple Valentine Treats
I made these sweet treat holders with a 2" by 6" piece of Painted with Love Designer Paper Scored at 2-2/2" and 3-1/2".  It easily fits a fun size candy.  But you can adjust the size to fit any candy.  To finish my Valentine project, I wrapped Shimmery Powder Pink Ribbon and cut 2 hearts with the Sweet & Sassy Dies.  The Stamp is from the Ready to Pop Stamp Set.  As always, you will find a complete list of supplies at the bottom of this post.
