VALENTINE GIFTS - HOW TO INSTRUCTIONS

Hi Everyone - I recently received the February issue of the CARDS magazine.  One of the articles showed how to make paper roses so I thought I would try to make a few flowers to go on some Valentine's gifts for Jacob's teachers.

1.  Cut 8 - 8 petal flowers at 3" using the Bloom Cricut Lite Cartridge.







2.  I cut the flowers according to the instruction in the book - an example of all the cut flowers is shown.  The first flower was cut between the middle of two petals to the middle of the flower.



3.  I then glued all the flowers together


4.  Once the flowers had dried, I snipped the point on the bottom of each flower.




5.  Then starting with the biggest flower, paste the flowers, one on top of the other. 

I then cut hearts at 4" from the Love Struck Cartridge and adhered them to the front of the bag.  I stamped the sentiment and adhered to the bag and attached another flower. 



I covered Hershey Nuggets with 3" strips of paper and put them in 3" cellophane bag. I cut labels at 4" and 3 1/2" with the Preserves Cartridge and stapled the labels and bags together. 

I hope Jacob's teachers enjoy their gifts as much I enjoyed making them. Thank you for visiting with us.  Until another day, God Bless You!!  Donna
