Valentine’s Day Sweet Treat Holder

With just a few steps, it’s simple to turn a Stampin’ Up! envelope into an adorable treat holder – perfect for a bit of Valentine’s Day candy.   Make them adorable for your kids/grandkids, or make them sophisticated and sweet for your friends/coworkers.  Either way, no one will turn away these cuties.

Say “I love you” on the outside.

  1. Love it ….love it ! I make “stuff” out of envelopes a lot ,but I don`t have this particular one . I know you are a big fan of those scissors because you shed a tear when you received them as a gift ! So share with us why they are so “wonderful” some time !!! Super cute idea !!

    • He shed a few tears as he snipped off the top of his finger…lol.

    • Sonny, Those scissors cut through ribbon like butta. I thought my snips would be fine, but one swipe across a piece of ribbon with these scissors, and I knew I had to have them. They are truly wonderful! No risk of frayed ends at all. THAT is something to write home about.

  2. Those envelopes are quite delicious! I love this project. I am always amazed at the wondrous versatility of our envelopes. Totally stealing this! Thanks for such a great blog hop today!
