More valentine treats!

Happy Valentine's eve!

As avid crafters you may browse through youtube like me, searching and searching for inspiration...

This is one of my favourite places to learn new techniques as I've always been more of a 'visual learner' so really appreciate the time and effort that is put into making such videos.

I recently came across this video from my fellow Stampin' Up! demo Michelle. I believe this is her first video, and what a brilliant job she did at it!

She shows you how to make these little Valentine matchbooks.

They are so adorable and really simple to make, I've made these to go along with the Love Note cards I shared with you on Tuesday.

Notice I've used the Heart 'o plenty wheel (again!) instead of patterned paper.

Inside mine, I enclosed some Love hearts but it's really versatile that you could use pretty much any sort of chocolate or sweets.

Thank you Michelle for your great tutorial.

Now this post is going out a lot earlier than my others lol, I don't normally see 5am but I've gotta catch the 6:20am train. I'm making my way over to Yorkshire to see my convention roomie, the lovely Julie and taking part in her all day class!! I'll also be seeing SJ and Jeannette again, haven't seen them since last November so I'm sure it's gonna be a lot of fun! I'll make sure I get pictures and will share when I'm back!!

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend.

Thanks for stopping by,
take care.
