Hey everyone, it's Hilary here today with some ever-so-sweet Valentines treat pockets for your special little ones. I just adore Valentines Day, I think it's all the pinks and reds....and chocolate that I associate with it and well, it just makes my heart smile. So does this new Kitten die by Debi Potter, which I will show you how to create these fun little Valentines pockets with.
There is nothing sweeter than a kitten sitting atop a Valentines heart pocket, and these were so fun and easy to make. I used the new Echo Park Paper Co's Pocket, Heart die along with Debi Potter's new Garden Flower die to create these one-of-a-kind Valentines.
Adding sweet little embellishments such as a glittered collar and heart candy sticker are the perfect touches...
and top off the flower cluster with "I love You" ribbon.
The back of the pocket shows you the heart and it's just as pretty as the front.
Let me show you how I created these fun Valentines pockets.
First using your Big Shot, (or Big Shot Plus, as I have), lay a cutting pad down, followed by the Pocket, Heart die, (blades facing up), then add your paper and finally a crease pad on top. You will need two hearts for each pocket you want to make.
To die cut the kitten and flowers it's the same cutting sandwich as above, though you don't need the crease pad, just another cutting pad. Lay all your pieces out.
Next fold along the scored lines, add red-lined sticky tape around the outside and adhere the two pockets together.
Next step is to glue the face of the kitten onto the kitten, and add the collar and tail. I use a wet glue and my trusty tweezers to pick up and adhere the smallest of the embellishments. Then layer your flower, picking up the edges for dimension, glue them together and adhere the flower to the side of the kitten.
Adhere the kitten to the heart pocket using 3D glue dots, then glue a large button on top of the flower, adding ribbon and twine. Then to finish the pocket, hot glue a white pipe cleaner to the inside of the pocket, on both sides, and you are finished.
Stuff the pocket full of chocolates and goodies and your littlest Valentines will be tickled pink over this cute, cuddly kitten on a heart!
Happy Valentines Day!
