BACraftygirl's Valentine's challenge

So I have been wanting to get the crafty juices flowing, and after I watched this video by BACraftygirl, a youtube channel I love to watch. She does lots of PTI hauls and this month she is sponsoring an inspiring contest.

The main goals of the contest are to make:

1. a valentine treat holder
2. use two or more stamps
3. use NO red or pink

"Hmmmmmm!" I thought to myself as I rubbed my chin in contemplation at this challenge. Valentine's is one of my favorite holidays (any time of year I can get especially giddy over my beloved bf I am a happy camper); and purple, a color that I adore but strangely don't use very much, would be a perfect element to add to this project.

I loved getting a change to break out my new PTI goodies, and utilize some older supplies too! This treat box is a lot of fun to put together. I typically don't like to use ribbon, and I don't have much PTI ribbon, but as it just so happens, I had some plum pudding saddlestitch,

I got a bug up my butt one day to make my own dangly-charms, because all of the others I had found shopping online were either not quite what I wanted, or rather too expensive. The Tim Holtz tiny paperclip holds it quite well!

Happy crafting! I hope everyone is having a great day to start off their week. xoxo
