While I was cleaning my craft area for the new year I stumbled across a box full of these treat holders and thought they would be a perfect gift for someone this Valentines.  I originally ordered these square tubes from 

To create my project this week I used the Painted With Love Specialty DSP,  this paper has gold foil accents and I love how it glimmers in the light.  I’ve selected my colours directly from the pattterned paper pack,

My greeting comes from Bloomin’ Love Stamp Set and die cutted it out with the Sweet & Sassy Framelits.  The treat tube is filled with chocolate M&M’s.
