There’s something about Valentine’s Day that just calls for Conversation Hearts. I don’t care to actually eat them but the kids love them, and traditions are traditions, after all. And they sure look adorable all packaged up in these easy to make treat containers designed by Audrey Pettit for Epiphany Crafts.
To get started, measure the dimensions of your cello bags and cut patterned paper to fit, leaving about an inch at the top. Slip paper into the bags, fill with candy, fold down the top of the bag and secure with adhesive. Adding paper to the bags helps them to retain their shape as they are filled with candy and the patterned paper gives your project a pop of color.
Die cut scalloped hearts from patterned paper. Then cut a window opening in the center of the hearts by running the hearts back through your die cutting machine with a smaller heart die in the center. Save all the pieces.
Adhere largest scalloped hearts to the top of the cello bags. Tie several ribbons together into a big bow and secure with a custom brad made from the Silver Brad Fittings and Round 14 Shape Studio Tool. Adhere bows to the top of the hearts. So sweet.
Attach smaller hearts to the right side of the larger hearts. Embellish with date strips cut from patterned paper & custom hearts made with the Heart 25 Shape Studio Tool. Stamp sentiment strips & adhere to the bows.
