Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek Day 2!

Happy New Years everyone!! So, what better way to start the new year than with a super sweet card and project. Today is Day 2 of the SASI sneak peeks. I am so excited about today's project!! I love this SASI Valentine's Day set that will be available at Taylored Expressions on Jan. 2. It's too SWEET!! I love each image. So, to showcase the set I decided to make some little heart cookie containers. They were super easy to make and I really love how they turned out. I even have a tutorial.
So here goes...
You will need the heart nestabilities for this tutorial but you can use any other heart punch as long as you tweak the measurements. First, punch out two red (card stock found in the new Key Ingredients) nesties hearts. I used the third smallest. Once you have the two hearts take a piece of vellum and cut at 8.75 x 1.65 inches. Now use your Scor-Pal to score the piece of vellum at 1.25 inches. Then, using your scissors cut small slits all the way to the end. This will allow you to bend the vellum around the heart. Now, using some adhesive (I used Tombow Metal) to go around the bottom of the heart. When you get to the end pinch the vellum to create the point. Do the same when you get to the top of the heart by adhering both ends together with glue. Once you've done that, add the second heart to the bottom to cover the vellum edge. After that, take your red gingham ribbon which is also from the Key Ingredients and add some Taylored Expression sticky tape on one side. Then, adhere to the bottom of the heart to create a clean and polished look. Lastly, add some crimped paper and a cookie inside. Tie everything together with some clear plastic bags and ribbon. The tag was also created with the new SASI "Love is Sweet" set. The floral eyelet is from Zva Creative. To complete the gift set I added a equally sweet card using the new set and key ingredients. I ADORE this paper!! Everything was colored in with Copics and Taylored Expression glitter was added on the hearts and cuppie tops. Well, that's all I have for today but tomorrow brings another fun sneak peek. Have a great day!
