New in the Shop!

Thursday, January 26th, 2012

I got such a huge response from the Valentine Fruit stickers last year that I decided to actually get them printed! The best part, they’re printed by a fruit sticker manufacture so they are 100% food safe! I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out and they make adding a sweet note to fruit that much easier. They are now available in my shop and they are sold in sets of two sheets for a total of 48, one inch stickers.

I was thrilled to find put that these little guys are also featured in the Feburary 2012 issue of InStyle Magazine and the current issue of Mollie Makes craft magazine. Such an incredible honor, so I want to give a BIG thanks to them!

In case you’re more of the DIY type, I still offer the downloadable PDF in my shop too. I’d love for you to take a peek and tell me what you think!



Updated DIY Valentine Treat Bags!

Sunday, January 22nd, 2012

Hi gang!  I have an updated Valentine Treat Bag PDF that’s available as a free download! These have been pretty popular over the years and I’ve made this version more universal so that it can be used for any homemade treats you might want to give to that special someone.

Just download the file and print directly onto a paper bag using a color ink jet printer. I’ve found that top loading printers work the best and the flatter the bag the better. Once printed, I stuff a Glassine bag inside to help maintain freshness and to protect the paper from oil stains. Then, using a rotary cutter fitted with a scallop blade, I trim the top inch off for a little extra sweetness.

Once you’ve made the bags, fill them with any sweet treat imaginable! I love making heart shaped brownies cut with a cookie cutter or Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies. Whatever you include, I’m sure the recipient will be thrilled!

Instructions are included in the PDF and if you need bags, I sell them in my Etsy shop. The bags are available in Craft and White along with the the Glassine Liner Bags. Enjoy and happy early Valentine’s Day!
