A Sweet Valentine

For our Christmas bazaar I made some hot chocolate pouches that were great sellers.  Now Joan's Gardens has asked us to make some of these pouches for candy bars.  You can find Selma's instructions here.  What sweet gifts these will make!   I was thinking of my husband when I made this, which is why I added the gauze material.  It reminds me of a fishing net and he likes to fish.

I used the MS punch all over the page heart and it has these perforated holes that are perfect for stitching.  The stamped heart was almost the exact size of the punch.  I added glossy accents and placed it on pop dots.
I also added a pocket for a tag.  The little card is an image from the Graphics Fairy.
 Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day!
