Petite Pocket Valentine Treats

If you have a Big Shot Die Cutting Machine you can make these Petite Pocket Valentine Treats and fill them with some candy and you have a special gift for your little Valentine's.  My grandchildren love Air Heads candy and they are the perfect size to fit in the pocket.  I added an extra lollipop too.
To make my treats, I cut Pink Pirouette and Real Red Card Stock using my Big Shot and the Petite Pocket Bigz XL Die.  You can cut two pockets with one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 card stock, and they go together with just two small strips of Sticky Strip along the sides.  I then cut strips of Love Impressions Designer Specialty Paper that I purchased on the Clearance Rack (and I just looked and it is still available) and wrapped it around the center.  I then added a large Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslits and a small punched heart, and my sentiment. 
If you don't have a Big Shot, Sale-a-bration is here in a few weeks. With the purchase of a Big Shot you already qualify for one free item in the Sale-a-bration catalog, and if you purchase an additional .05 of merchandise - well I know there is nothing for .05 but that is how close you are to getting two free products, you would be able to purchase a second product for free too. During Sale-a-bration you get to select one free product in the Sale-a-bration catalog for every $50 you spend in Stampin' Up! merchandise from the Annual Catalog or the Spring Catalog. A great way to get some really nice items for FREE!.
