DIY Valentine's Day Tag // Sending Hedgehugs Treat Bags

February 14, 2017

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I have a slightly different project to share with you all today, but I know that you'll all still enjoy it. It's a combo deal actually where the main project that I am sharing is part of a bigger project as well! I'm absolutely in love with the way they turned out and hope you'll spread some love with this idea too! 

With thoughts of chocolate and love in the air, I wanted to give a little bit to my lovely roommates. I mean who doesn't love chocolate and a cute hedgehog?! These tags began when I opened up my new distress ink mini kit #15. I knew I wanted to play with the beautiful red in the set and Valentine's Day was the perfect excuse to get a bit inky! I used my ink blender tool on some 7 Gypsies tags to get an ombre effect.

Once I had a solid red ombre I moved on to a little bit of stamping. I wanted a subtle pattern on the background of the tag without adding a lot of texture. I decided to use one of my Studio G stamps that said XOXO on it. I stamped this in the same distress ink I used on the background. My stamping adventure continues on these tags and I use the Lawn Fawn set called Hedgehugs. A super cute mini set that is definitely a need! I stamped all of these stamps in Memento black ink.

To give my tag a little more dimension, I stamped the sentiment on some white cardstock. I put it up on foam to give dimension and added some flag endings. At first, I didn't like the way the sentiments stuck out at the ends, but it's growing on me. Even with this dimension, the tags still felt a little bit flat. To finish them off, I added a couple clear sequins from Darice to add shine and pizzazz.

 I also wanted to add some softer textures. I dug through my stash and found this Halloween pom pom trim and thought it was perfect! I added a small strand of this to the bottoms of each tag. It adds just the right amount of frill to the tags.

To bring it all together, I packaged up a couple of lip shaped chocolates into some plain ole lunch bags. Of course, I couldn't just leave them plain, so I stapled my tags and a doily on top for the perfect Valentine's day gift! I hope you enjoyed this fun DIY tag/gift! Thanks for stopping by!
