Love is in the air!!

I was inspired to make this wreath after talking to my girlfriend Jean (howdy Jean!!). She mentioned that she was going to try to make one of these paper wreaths using some Valentine's Day DSP and I have not ordered mine yet (I know...shame on me!!) So I grabbed some of my new FAVORITE DSP called First Edition (121878) tied a black satin ribbon at the top and added some 'L-O-V-E' ~ now I need to grab the rest of my Valentine's Decor.... and decorate!! So..stay tuned and see what else I come up with...can't use last years paper (I might start twitching!!) to order some new goodies!! Okay, now be honest have you ever ordered something twice or more?? I mentioned that I am about to place an order?? Well...I was going throught my inventory of card stock and deciding what next to order from my never ending 'Wish List' and I realized that I had the stamp set Eat Chocolate on there twice!! I was SO close to ordering it again!! I was so happy the other day when I came across it...looking for the perfect stamp set to use for my candy bar treat!! I think I might have little 'Stamper Elves' in my basment...and hey that's like!! So there it was, sitting on my shelf waiting for me to's the little things in life that make me all warm and fuzzy! Note: (sorry about blurry picture but since I didn't want to take away from the stamped image...I chose to de-boss the image) Candy Bar Treat Directions: CS base measures 5 1/2" x 5 1/2". Score at 1", 1 1/4", 3 1/2" and 3 3/4". Apply sticky strip to hold closed and decorate as desired....pretty quick and simple!! I used a couple goodies to dress mine up: Stamp Set: I {Heart} Hearts, C 118571 W117010 Ink: Early Espresso, Blushing Bride Card Stock: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip Accessories: Pretty in Pink Grosgrain (109032), silver brads (104336), small heart punch (117193), Elegant Bouquet embossing folder (115964), paper piercing tool (116631) Getting ready to film another video tutorial...I am SO excited and can't wait to share with you all my fabric Valentine's hearts!! Happy Stampin' ~Erin

Your wreath looks way better then my curly one!! I love that paper! I think my issue is that half my paper curled well, the other half wouldn't and I didn't have a bone folder, so I had just a ruler. Soooo not as good. And I was impatient and wouldn't wait to wrap each one over a pencil, took too much time, lol. Love the candy bar!
