Hi there! Jill from Every Day is an Occasion ( http://everydayisanoccasion.com/ ) here to share a fun way to package a treat. I was thinking these would be fun for Valentine’s Day, but also for a favor for a wedding shower, or even a birthday party. I just love these little treats. I think they are so fun!!

Hand Stitched Paper Heart Treats

Heart Treats

To create these little fellas, I traced a heart pattern I had lying around onto Fancy Pants Embossed Core and Lavendar Core. Then I cut them out. You could find a heart pattern on the internet and print it out and use that as a pattern or you could draw one. Then I used the We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy straight attachment to create the holes around the heart.

After the holes were punched, I just went ahead and hand stitched following the directions that came on the package. It was really fun and relaxing. If you haven’t hand stitched yet, I say give it a shot because it is fun. I love how it looks on a layout too! One piece of advice, make sure to sand your embossed paper after you have the heart all stitched up. When I sanded before it made the heart too pliable and harder to punch through. Before I stitched the heart up I added some Sixlets.
