My Favorite Things

MFT January Release Countdown Day 5

Now that we’re in the new year, it’s time to reset to calendar year and get crafty for Valentine’s! Today marks the first day of the My Favorite Things January Release Countdown and we’re just filled with love, sweets, and tons of cuteness. Out of my usual cardmaking norm, I decided to create some crafty sweet packaging to share with you today.

The new MFT products this month make creating these candy treats super easy! I started by making the tags with the Treat Tag Die-namics using the new Sweet Stack paper pack and the coordinating card stock colors. One die cut with the pattern paper for the front, and once again with the color card stock for the back.

The next part is creating the area for the chocolate nuggets. This was done using the Nugget Label, Window & Frame Die-namics. As the name suggests, it creates the area for the Nugget Trio Shaker Pouch to come through and a nice frame around it. It also creates the stitched opening in the back for the recipient to open the package.

To decorate these tags, I used the cute critter images from the Wonderful Woodland Friends stamp set. I stamped these images in Milk Chocolate hybrid ink and colored them with copic markers. I also die cut them out with the coordinating dies.

I heat embossed sentiments from the Sweet Celebrations stamp set onto the back of the treat tags in white. Then I added my critters to the back, making sure I do not glue over any openings.

I added a few of the smaller images to the front center of the package as well. As a side note, the dies for the nugget window also comes with a label die for you to cover the chocolates with. I personally liked seeing the Hersey’s labels out of the window so I did not do so, but if you wanted to cover them up, the dies have that ability to do so as well. Okay, now that I have been a good girl and not eaten anything while making these, it’s time to have some chocolate!!
