A sweet valentine + a farewell

Hello Neat and Tangled Lovelies!

Katie Gehring here.  Today, I have a simple and sweet Valentine's treat idea to share using Simple Christmas, You + Me and Neat and Tangled's small glassine bags.

First, I placed 6 delicious Dove dark chocolates in a small glassine bag.  I taped the bag shut with a bit of washi tape and wrapped a ribbon around the bag.  Next, I die cut 2 circles from white and aqua cardstock.  I stamped the pine boughs from Simple Christmas on the white tag and the heart from You + Me with aqua ink.  I love how the pine boughs look like laurels.  There are so many uses for this set outside of just the holidays! 

I trimmed about 1/3 of the aqua circle and adhered it to the bottom of the white circle.  A little gold embossing on the arrow and sentiment (also from You + Me), attach the finished tag to a doily, and this sweet package is finished!   I plan to slip this into my hubby's lunch bag closer to Valentine's Day, but it would be also great for the kiddos, minus the dark chocolate.  Mine aren't fans. :)  

This post is bittersweet (no dark chocolate pun intended) as it is my last Design Team post for Neat and Tangled.  I have had a wonderful time with this team of talented stampers, and I am ever grateful to Danielle for allowing me the opportunity to create with her wonderful designs!   It's been such a dream come true. 

Thanks, as always, for stopping by and sweet wishes for the rest of your day!
