Tic Tac Valentine Treat Bundle Project

This is a quick project using the Happy Heart single stamp from the Valentine Treat Bundle, with a little more grown-up style. While most of us chicks dig candy, some of us chicks are watching our waistline. Here's a pretty and petite treat that will satisfy the sweet tooth, the diet plan, and the visual senses:


This is a regular size package of Cherry Passion Tic Tacs, wrapped with about 6" of the new 1-1/4" Two-Tone Ribbon in Pink Pirouette/Rose Red, with about 6" of Linen Thread tied around it in a square knot. I used a few discretely placed Mini Glue Dots under the ribbon to keep it from sliding off the Tic Tac package.

You could use more of that beautiful Two-Tone Ribbon and cut some fancy fishtail ends in it if you want, but I used only as much as I needed to cover the label on the Tic Tac package. Keeping the ends straight also made it easier for me to singe the ends of the ribbon with a lighter, to melt them and prevent fraying. If you like the frayed look...go for it ;-)

Just an FYI, I think the Cherry Passion Tic Tacs can be found in bulk single flavor packs online, if you can't find them in your local store. Again, these are the regular size packages (5/8 oz) and NOT the Big Pack. There are also some cute pink Tic Tacs available that would work well with this project, I think their flavor is called Strawberry Fields. You could even use the 1-1/4" Two-Tone Ribbon in Basic Gray/Basic Black with those pink Tic Tacs, and create a sophisticated Pink & Gray favor!

Stampin' Supplies: Valentine Treat Bundle (Happy Heart single stamp), Whisper White card stock, Real Red ink (pad or marker), Full Heart Punch, 1-1/4" Two-Tone Ribbon in Pink Pirouette/Rose Red, Linen Thread, Mini Glue Dots, Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit (use with Big Shot), Daffodil Delight card stock (use in Embosslit), Stampin' Dimensionals (to layer stamped, punched heart onto embosslit heart).
