Newton's Nook Designs Sweet Treats Blog Hop!

Hi friends!    I hope you're having fun so far checking out all of the Sweet Treats the NND design team has created!   

I've had these adorable test tube containers for ages now, and thought it was high time I put them to use - I knew they'd be the perfect little Valentine treat!   


Sweet Treats Blog Hop Test Tube Valentine treats by Kimberly Rendino | Newton's Nook Designs

I used three stamp sets to create these li'l cuties -  Wild About Zoo for the conversation hearts,  Love a la Carte for the sentiments I used on the conversation hearts, and Apple Delights for the 'sweet on you' sentiment.

See those conversation hearts?   I stamped them by using the back side of one of the animal print hearts in the Wild About Zoo set!  I stamped the sentiments in red (stamped off once) to capture a real conversation heart feel.  Once I had several hearts stamped out I ran them through my Xyron and then fussy cut them out leaving a small white border.   All I had to do then was stick them onto the tubes!  The tags were stamped with the small solid heart stamp from Wild About Zoo and the sentiment from Apple Delights stamped over top.   I gave the tags a coating of glitter spray and tied them on with twine.   Super easy!

I know two kiddos who will appreciate these....but they'll probably be more interested in the M&M's inside, lol!   

Thought I'd share....while I was trying to photograph these, my cat, Holly, REALLY wanted to play with them - so I was able to snap this cute pic.   Silly girl!
