Hearts and Candy

Greetings blog followers and friends.  I hope you are having a great weekend.  I've been feeling a bit festive today, no idea why but hey, sometimes you just have to go with the flow.  Over at Cheery Lynn the challenge is Hearts a Glow.  Maybe that got me thinking Christmas.  And then there was this lovely paper by Basic Grey that I bought.  I thought it was such lovely autumn colours, only to discover on closer inspection the script was Christmas.   OK, I can go with that.  I decided to make something a bit different and I wanted to try a 3D project so this is it......

I started by cutting 4 Cheery Lynn Love You More hearts from gold mirror card.  Then I drew a heart shape to go with it and fussy cut 4 hearts from Basic Grey Jovial Nice double sided paper.  Love those yellow tones.  I stuck the diecuts onto the hearts and used DI Barn Door to add some extra red inside the diecut.  I scored and folded down the centre line. 

I added some lace around two of the hearts and then stuck them together to form a 3D shape.  Before sticking the fourth piece in place I added some red ribbon, folded over at the top for a hanger and I left a tail hanging down so I could attatch something at the bottom. 

I made a small bag from red organza and added a couple of silver metal snowman charms from Korthobby.  I have filled my bag with some chocolates. 

Here's the whole thing just hanging around.  Quite a nice way to hang the Christmas chocolates or maybe some other little gift.
