Blooming Button Bits Valentines

I saw these super cute party invitations that Danielle Flanders made on her blog.  I wanted to do something similar for Valentines for my Mom's knitting group.  You can see Danielle's post here on her blog.

I stamped the stems onto the glassine bag.  I punched out some little hearts then stamped sentiments from Friendship Jar Spring Fillers onto the hearts.  The hearts are attached with pop up dots.  A few paper punched butterflies with some rhinestones were added to completed the bag.

For the inside of the Valentine, I inked the edges of a piece of cardstock and added some baby ric rack trim.  The sentiment is also from the Friendship Jar Spring Fillers set.  The best part of the Valentine is the Reeses Peanut Butter Heart that I attached on to it!  I just slipped it into the the little bag, punched a few holes and tied it with some pretty pink seam binding.

Stamps:  Papertrey Ink-Blooming Button Bits and Friendship Jar Spring Filler
Ink:  Memento, Versafine
Paper:  Bazzill, Recollections
Misc:  Glassine bags, butterfly punch, heart punch, seam binding, rhinestones, pop up dots, ric rack, Crop-A-Dile, Reeses Peanut Butter Hearts

I made 13 and they are already to go to knitting group.  I am actually going to the group with Mom next week.  My sister and I are having a Superbowl/Craft-A-Palooza on Sunday!  We are going to watch the World's Greatest Football Team aka the New England Patriots play and craft.  It's going to be wicked awesome!  Then, I'm going to stay over and go to group with my Mom.
