Newton's Nook Designs Sweet Treats Blog Hop!

It's our 7th Annual Sweet Treats Blog Hop!

The Newton's Nook Designs Team is hopping along today to share some great Sweet Treats - just in time for Valentines day! Make sure you scroll down to the bottom of this post to see the whole list and hop along and comment for a chance to win!

For my stop on the hop today,  I wanted to make something fun chocolate holders featuring the cute rescue vehicles from from our new Love Emergency Stamp Set. This set includes a fire truck, ambulance and police car with puns that are perfect for Valentine's Day! 

Sweet Treats Blog Hop!  Valentine Treats by Jennifer Jackson | Love Emergency Stamp Set and Fancy Edges Tag Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs

I started out by coloring the ambulance, fire truck and police car using copic markers. I then cut them out with the coordinating Love Emergency Die Set. I knew I wanted to use our Fancy Edges Tag Die Set to make treat holders so I cut out a tag for each vehicle. I decorated the tag to make it look like a street by adding a stripe of clouds using a piece of blue paper that was stenciled with our Cloudy Sky Stencil. Below the clouds I added a stripe of gray cardstock to look like a road. Then each tag was topped with a red scalloped edge. To create this I cut a border using one of the decorative border edges that is included in the Fancy Edges Tag Die Set

To make this tag into a treat holder I cut another white tag using the Fancy Edges Tag Die Set. Then I connected the decorated tag to the plain white one creating a hinge using a small piece of cardstock that was the same width (around 2 inches). I attached the hinge on the bottom to connect the two tags together and make a pocket. I placed the chocolates inside a little cello bag and adhered it inside the holder. 

Here is a photo of the treat when you open it:

I also stamped the senimtments from the Love Emergency Stamp Set onto hearts that were cut out using the Heart Frames Die Set. I punched a hole in each heart and a black and white ribbon tied through both tags connects the tops together to hold it closed.
