Hi Friends and Happy Tuesday Treats! Are you ready for Valentine’s Day? It’s one of my favorite card make seasons…all the hearts, loves and sweets and the new Taylored Expressions has everything you need to create sweet valentine treats, tags, home decor and more!
Today, I’m super excited to have a guest designer with me (my daughter) sharing her fun treat tags using the Kid Valentine Craft Kit and extras from the release. Let’s take a look at her fun creations and at the end of the post you’ll find a Mini Slim Card & Three Treat Boxes using the new All Tucked In Valentine Windows.
Kid Valentine Craft Kit—FOR ALL AGES
The Kid Valentine Craft Kit is perfect for ALL ages…my almost teen had SO much fun using the Blender Brushes with the Sweet Treats Layering Stencil. I heard some giggle as she decorated/stamped the images with cute faces and sprinkles…especially the sprinkles hair on the ice cream cone, LOL. The great thing about the layering stencil is you’re creating 4 images that when you cut out into a four squares they fit perfectly on 4 3×3 notecards.
She changed it up a bit and used the Sweet Treats coordinating dies and created fun candy holder tags using the new Tag Treat Wrap Die for each of her friends. Underneath the white tag layer, she stamped TO and FROM using the clear stamp set. For a little extra teen-bling, we foiled the sentiments in Champagne Gold and cut using a paper trimmer. She finished up her tags with the cutest bows using twine and thin ribbon.

Rainbow LOVE Treat Boxes & Mini Slim Card
The new All Tucked In Valentine Window Dies create the cutest treat boxes and are perfect for inlay card designs like my Mini Slim Card. Because I LOVE rainbow and Valentine Treat season means you might be mass-producing these treats and cards, I have a little hack for you.
Using ONE A2 Sticky Sheet Panel with 1/4” Easy Strips, I was able to use the one rainbow striped panel for four projects—the mini slim card (one vertical strip ~2.5 x 5.5) and all three boxes (cutting the striped pattern into ~1-7/8 x 1-7/8 squares). I added a black and white heat embossed sentiment to finish the heart & flower treat boxes.
Tip 1: Because the Valentine Window designs are close the edge of the All Tucked In Box Front, I first cut and scored/folded my boxes and then die cut the Love, Heart and Flower to the box front. I also used a metal shim to get really good embossed score lines and deeper inlay cuts.
Tip 2: To make sure the stripes in the background where aligned, I used a piece of clear tape to create a hinge and then adjusted the stripes on the square until straight. Then picked up the square using the hinge to add liquid adhesive to secure the rainbow striped square to the box, removing the clear tape hinge once the glue dried.
