Stampin' Up! Valentine with a Christmas Cocoa Touch

Hi everyone!
The two little projects pictured here were created with some items from the 2009 Holiday Mini (only available through January 4th!) and a bit of the new from the Occasions Mini that will debut on January 5th!
Although this beautiful Real Red and Whisper White flocked paper is from the Christmas Cocoa Specialty Paper (116770; $11.95--through 1/4/10), I thought it would be great used on Valentine treats. The card is made with the Treat Cups(116802: 12 for $2.95) and the Sweet Centers stamp set (116521;$29.95-available until 1/4/10). The 1 3/4" punch (112004;$15.95)provides the perfect opening for the Treat Cups and the heart image.

After filling the cup with red Skittles, I covered the opening on the inside of the card with a square piece of Whisper White cardstock. Then, I slit an "X" in the center so the recipient would be able to access the "treat" without tearing the card!
The little bag is constructed from the flocked Christmas Cocoa Paper, tied together with Whisper White Satin Ribbon which I threaded through two holes punched with my Crop-A-Dile. The little tags were created with Tiny Tags stamp set and the Medium Jewelry Tag Punch that will be available on January 5th!

Have you started planning your Valentine projects? ...It's not too early!
