(Singing) Nobody knows the truffles I've seen...



This is my little 'tin, tag & treat' creation for the Verve Project Parade on the Verve blog. I found this inexpensive tin at Michael's, filled it with Lindt truffles, and had a ball decorating it! I stamped 5 of the square designs from Accent Notes (Verve) with Versamark ink, then embossed with fine black EP, punched them out with Creative Memories Square Maker, punched with a slot punch, then wove Red Poppy ribbon (PTI) through each of the 5 squares. A rhinestone adhesive heart was added to each center. The lid was decorated with 2 Nesties, colored with Copic sketch marker R29 & clear rhinestones added. The heart was embossed in black, cut out & popped with dimensionals. The tag attached by ribbon is simple with a punched heart border and a fun quote by Charles Schulz: "All you need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt". Not sure yet who will be the recipient of this sweet treat...could it be you?

STAMPS: Verve Accent Notes, Love's Flower (sentiment), Hearts on Fire
PAPER: Pure Poppy (PTI), Neenah Solar White, Black
INK: Versamark
ACCESSORIES: Pure Poppy ribbon (PTI), Rhinestone stickers (Me & My Big Ideas), CB, Scallop & Circle Nestabilities, Martha Stewart heart border punch, Black/white ribbon by Flourishes, Inkadinkadoo black EP
