Favor of your Heart!

Our challenge this week was to create something for a Valentine’s Party. I decided to make a Vase of Heart Flowers for a table decoration that can be handed out at the end of the Party as Party Favors. I don’t have a Cricut Cartridge like Simply Sweet or anything with hearts, or I would have made this project with Cricut Cartridges vs. Punches.

Heart Party Favors:


Self-Adhesive Post-It paper in White, Cheeky, and Bashful
Martha Stewart 4X6 Holidays Mat Pad of Heart Card Stock Sheets
Hot Pink Bazzill Edge Strip
Cuddlebug and Tiny Heart Folder
Creative Memories Double Heart Punch
Marvy 2X2 ½ inch Scalloped Heart Punch
Stamp with 4 different Heart Candy Sayings
Pop Dots
Glue Stick and Glue Dots
Pipe Cleaners
Glass Vase (Dollar Store)
Hot Pink Stamp Pad


Line the Glass Vase with White Paper to hide the Pipe Cleaners.

Glue the Bazzill Edge Strip around the top of the Vase.

Cut 18 scalloped hearts from the Martha Stewart Pad using the Marvy Scallop Punch.

Using the same punch, Cut six from hearts from each of the three Post-It paper colors. (White, Cheeky, and Bashful)

Cut 18 hearts from the Martha Stewart Pad, using the large heart on the Creative Memories Double Heart Punch.

Ink one of the candies on the stamp and stamp it onto the Creative Memories (CM) punched out heart. Stamp different sayings for several of the CM hearts you punched. The stamp has Hug Me, Love You, I’m Yours, and Be Mine. (I got it this past week at Michael’s for $1)

Pop Dot the CM hearts onto the middle of the 18 Card Stock Scalloped Hearts.

Run all 18 of the Post-It Paper Scalloped Hearts through the Tiny Heart Cuddlebug Folder.

Adhere the Pipe Cleaner to the back side of each of the 18 Card Stock Scalloped Hearts with a large glue dot.

Adhere one of the Post-It Scalloped Embossed Hearts to the Card Stock Scalloped Heart with the Pipe Cleaner glued inside. Adhere insides together with nice sides facing out. Use glue pen towards bottom and around Pipe Cleaner to make sure they stay together. Do this step for all 18 hearts.

Make little bows and either tie them around the Pipe Cleaners or use a small glue dot to glue them to the front of each scalloped hearts a little ways down on the pipe cleaner.

Arrange the Hearts in the Vase like Flowers and display on your Table at the Party.

When the Party is over, hand them out as Party Favors.
