project. We were asked to make a gift bag, party favor, treat bag, box, (for a valentine party or gift) and incorporate the word LOVE in it. :)
I re-used an old vitamin container. I cut a strip of red paper at 4" x 12" and used a Martha Stewart Punch to both the top and bottom.
I used mylar filler (from the Dollar Tree) and filled the jug. You can easily tuck lots of little chocolates, money, small toys or other treats inside the filler.
I used a Bow Easy to tie my bow (there is no way I'd get it that perfect on my own).
The Ladybug is from Doodlecharms (cut at 3"). I added white and pink gel pen
"stitches", Glossy Accents and a Action Wobble finish off the ladybug.
I tied some white craft twine to buttons and glued
then to the bottom of my recycled vitamins jug.
The word "love" is from Simply Sweet. I added gel pen accents
and glossy accents to the center of the heart.
I added lots of gel pen accents to the border punch.
