With Valentine’s Day just one month out, you know we’re getting excited. Today, Designer Wendy Sue Anderson is sharing a fun way to dress up a store bought Valentine’s Day treat. It’s so cute, we think you’re going to love it!
I love any excuse to give a little gift or treat to friends and family – and with Valentine’s Day just around the corner I’ve already started to get the creative gears turning with a little “love” in mind. If you’re looking for a super easy (and super cute) little gift, try repackaging a store-bought treat.
Here’s all you need to make these cookie packages – yummy pink frosted cookies, the cardmaking pad from the “yours truly” collection, the chips from the “yours truly” collection (not pictured), and a few glassine bags.
Simply cut the card fronts from the cards in the pad and then trim them into banner shapes by cutting the bottoms into an inverted “v” shape. Use the leftover pieces from the other cards to create extra banners for layering.
Add a chipboard shape to each banner – consider using foam dots to add a bit of dimension.
Now unwrap the cookies and put them in the bags. Fold over the tops. Place the cute banner on the top and run them through your sewing machine – use colorful coordinating thread for a fun look too!
Now watch someone smile when they receive your gift of pink frosted love! 🙂
