Wrap Star: Sweet Treats


Good morning! Valentine’s Day is just around the corner so why not take a little time this weekend to whip up some special treats for someone special in your life!

I made a few quick treat bags out of a card design I found in the Silhouette store. I added a back side to the card shape and then cut them out of a few different Sweet Nothings papers.

Treat bags

I love that the papers are double sided… you can see that the reverse side shows through the top of the treat bag once folded together.


I added lots of lovely Sweet Nothings embellishments – tags, die cuts and even a little fun washi tape to the front of each card design.


I added some enamel hearts and a stamped “xo” and then once each card was decorated I added some candy into small plastic bags and added those to the inside of each of the folded cards.

A Sweet Mason Jar


Hello Fancy Pants friends! Wow, Valentines Day is coming up!  Sometimes I think that this holiday gets a little out of control when it comes to gifts.  Today I am sharing a fun way to dress up those mason jars you have hanging around to transform them into an affordable gift.  Either to keep for yourself or to giveaway.

First I started by cutting a piece of Sweet Nothings Love Garden pattern paper to 12 inches by 1 1/4 inches and then adhering it to the jar.  Next, I used some of the Sweet Nothings Black + White washi tape and applied it underneath the pattern paper.

To make the tag I used a few of the Sweet Nothings Tags, layered them using 3d foam adhesive, and then layered a few die cuts from the Sweet Nothings Ephemera set.  Since the tags come with string all I had to do was tie it to my ribbon.


I filled the jar up with some seasonal Valentines Day chocolates and then grabbed a fun felt pennant.  Have you looked at all of the new Felt Pennants? Oh my goodness, they are so sticking cute, not to mention so versatile!  I created two little banners on the pennant stick by adhering the Sweet Nothings Washi tape.  It added a decorative touch and made the project coordinated.


Here you go!  A super cute and affordable gift.  I think this would be a perfect gift for teacher, co-workers, a spouse, or friend.  It is so cute and will make the recipient feel so very special.

DIY Valentine Frames


DIY things are always the best idea to give someone that you love as a gift. To celebrate Valentine’s Day I created three DIY Home Décor Valentine Frames using the Sweet Nothings collection. It’s so easy and simple.

How to do:

  • Choose your favorite frame. This time I chose wood frames which had 4R size.
  • Choose some pattern paper, choose your favotite one. Cut it into 4R size.
  • Choose your favorite die cut embellishments. Paste one in the middle of each and use pop up tape to give shadows and dimension.

You can do it in less than 10 minutes and happy creating!

A Valentine Collection


Hello, Fancy Pants Designs friends! Yuki here to share an idea of Valentine cards using the Sweet Nothings collection!

I created these mini cards and envelopes. I’m loving the cute Sweet Nothings collection, especially the pattern papers! Those papers are perfect for creating your Valentines projects.

I used the Moments to Love, Something Sweet, and Love Is In The Air patterns for my cards and chose Happy Mail for my envelopes.

I punched a small circle in the envelope. You can see the message on a puffy sticker peeking through the window.

I added some die-cuts from the Ephemera pack and puffy stickers from the Puffy Designer Stickers and Puffy Heart Stickers on my cards.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
