Valentine Treat

Hi there, how's everyone's Valentine shopping going? I try to give a little something to lots of people on Valentine's day, so I start early! Nothing big, just little something sweet and usually a little handmade gift.

This is going to be for the secretary at our school. She's such a wonderful lady, and she just loves all the kids at the school. It's made from 2 cups (I purchased a pkg of them at walmart!) that I decorated with patterned paper, then made this cute little holder for them. I decorated the holder with hearts, stamps, a scallop border and some ribbon. I got the idea for this from Becky Roberts blog at christmas time, and have used it several times already. It's really quite fun to do! I'm gonna fill the cups with little sweets, chocolates etc.

Hope she likes it!

P.S. If you search Becky's blog, she is an amazingly talented lady, and you can find awesome ideas on her site, and she gives lots of instructions too!

If you haven't had a chance yet, don't forget to hop on over to my STAMPIN UP! site (link on the top right of my blog) we have a fabulous sale going on right now you don't want to miss!!!

Take care,
