Tags, Treats and Tins - Day 10

HI Everyone! - It's Sankari here :) Haven't all of the projects that the Divas have created for theTags, Treats and Tins challenge Project Parade been amazing!! What an awesome challenge!

I created something more having to do with the "tag part" of the challenge......really big tags ;)......more like a banner (that's still kind of like a tag, right lol! ;) ?). I love creating things for the house and my family and I love decorating the place up for all of the holidays - so for Valentine's day, I thought I would create a little banner out of chipboard right around the dining room area where we spend most of our days Here is a picture of the banner:


and here it is hanging on our dining room window (as you can see, we are covered in snow over here - its hard to take a picture with snow just glaring bright at you! :)
I created three hanging treat boxes to hang down from the banner - two of them with a picture of each of my children and the middle one is a picture of them together :

I decorated the treat favors by using the adorable monkey and sentiments in the Love Monkey set to decorate each of the clear favor boxes, along with theHeart Notes stamp set to decorate the corners.

Here is an example of one of the treat favor Boxes - I used the sentiment "My little love monkey" which perfectly describes my son :). The other sentiments used are "You've stolen my heart" and "My heart is yours". The back side of these can be filled up with some little treats. They of course love things with their pictures on it - so they were excited to see these little hanging treat boxes :)

In making the banner, first cut out as many panels as desired out of chipboard and cover with papers of your choice (I used papers from the Sweet Love Collection from Yellow Bicycle). I then punched out holes and added eyelets at the tops of the chipboard and typed out the word "love" and cut it out and covered it with a healthy dose of the pink sugarcoating glitter :) I used the Love's Flower stamp set for both the awesome sentiment and the beautiful flowers (all paper pieced) in decorating this first pennant and the Be Mine plain Jane and the Heart Flutter was used on the second pennant:


I used the Heart's Desire sentiment "I Love You" and the flower from Love's Flower for the third Pennant and the Sweet Valentine stamp for the fourth:

I stamped "Be Mine" all over the paper in the 5th pennant and also used the Heart's Desire stamp set for the sentiment and on the sixth one, I paper pieced the Love's Flower stamp and then added a little pearl accent in the middle of each one:
I had a lot of fun creating this Valentine Day Banner for the "Tag" part of the challenge - but Now its Your Turn!! We'd love for you to play along with us and show us your Tags, Tins & Treats! Verve stamps are not required, but if you've got 'em, why not show 'em a little love? ;)

  8. Thanks everyone for your sweet comments! HI Julie - the banner is cut out of chipboard from an AccuCut Die (2 banner pieces can come out of one chipboard piece) and then is covered with paper - hope that answers your question!
