Christmas Leftovers into Valentine Treats!

Hi Everyone

I was guest posting over on the Making Memories Blog this week - and I had a couple of ideas for turning your leftover Christmas bits and pieces into ideas for Valentines Day.

From Christmas Day to Valentine’s Day

We all have scraps of paper and embellishments left over from our Christmas projects, so I thought I would use some of the fabulous red and cream colored leftovers I had from the Twinkle Collection to create a couple of simple Valentines Favors.


I made these candy holders using some of the Words paper and then added some plain red organza ribbon along with the gorgeous spotted red and cream ribbon from the Trims and Brads embellishment pack. 



One of the flowers from the Twinkle Baubles embellishment pack completes the simple but elegant decoration. These would be great as a little gift for a teacher, filled with some lovely pink candy hearts.


These flowers are a great way to decorate gifts and packages too.  I used a rosette die to create the flower and one of the Twinkle Baubles in the centre. The over-size rhinestones in this pack are fabulous!

Check in again soon to see another great way to use those Christmas Leftovers!

Please post a comment with any questions.

  12. if it was snowing anyway! become ordained online Nevertheless, the inclusion of snow contributes nicely to the Christmas feel of the poem, bringing Berlin's song "I'm dreaming of a White Christmas" and the dulcet tones of Bing Crosby to mind.
