My Sweet Valentine

Here is my latest project. I was to design a Valentine's project that included something edible. I came up with this cute little tic tac tote!

Here is a picture of the contents including the tic tac toe board and the goodie bag containing the "Kisses" playing pieces.

And a little peek with all the goodies inside.

Cricut cartridges: Create a Critter, Sweethearts, Mini Monograms

The main part of the tote was made from a 5 3/4" x 8 3/4" envelope. I sealed the envelope and then cut it in half to a 5 3/4" x 4 3/8" size. Then I scored three sides (all except the open end) at 1". At that point I was able to make a nice pouch and just had to stick down the flaps left on the bottom. I then cut two 6" scalloped circles from Mini Monograms to cover the base of the tote and embossed then with Swiss dots using my Cuttlebug. I also inked over the dots with a little bit of white ink. I then made my tic tac toe board, the base was cute at 3"x 3" and then scored at 1" to make the board, I then traced the lines with a red marker and matted it with larger pieces of black and red cardstock. The ladybug is cut at 2 1/2" from Create a Critter. The heart with wings is also from Create a Critter and cut at 3". The label on the goodie bags is embossed using the hearts folder from Cuttlebug and then lightly inked with pink. The tag was cut at 2 1/2" inches from the Sweethearts cartridge. I used heart shaped brads to attach the handles and tag.

I hope you enjoy! I am loving today it's so cold outside and we are snowed in (10 or so inches) so it's a perfect day to craft!
