Sweet Valentine Treats

      I made these sweet little treats for my daughter in college, just a little somethin' somethin' to slip into an envelope.  She loves to get mail so I have to keep on the look out for little treats and surprises.  Even with the increased postal rates it is worth it to send things to brighten her day.  In fact, I just love sending out mail.  I always picture someone's face when they open the mailbox and there is something that is NOT a bill.  I know I always get excited.


   This sis a  Ghirardelli squares covered with a cute little folio made with a Too Much Fun Rubber Stamp I just purchased.  It was very easy to make stamp, color, glitter, fold  and voila a pretty favor.

     This little Kiss is covered with another stamped box from Too Much Fun Rubber Stamps.  I don't know if they make the kiss covers anymore.  I have a different one for Christmas.

     Each side of this little kiss has a different rose pattern. This is the front and  bottom

    Isn't this just the cutest thing.  I think next year I'm going to go to town on these and make a whole passle to give away.

     I have a niece, actually two, getting married in October, I wonder if she would like some of these as favors?
