I filled the 5.75" x 7.75" Chevron Embossed Glassine Bag with a We've Got Your Border/Valentine sheet of stickers and a few sequins.  To top it off, I added a 6" Red Heart Lace Doily, one of the Large White Punched Pieces with added Labels by the Dozen/Valentine sticker, and a sentiment strip from the Stickers by the Dozen/Valentine sticker sheet.

I think this sweet goody package would make a perfect gift for a crafty friend!

Valentine Treat Bags by Cathy H.

Hello!  Cathy here today with something sweet for you!  Valentine's Day is just around the corner and I have a couple of sweet treat bags to share with you today!  I used two SRM embossed bags, one glassine and one kraft, both embossed with the Flourish design.  You can find the glassine one here!  I will be filling these with treats and little coupons, one for my husband and the other to send home to my parents!  I used a gorgeous Gold Lace Doily as a jumping point for my bag, then layered with a few Silhouette cuts!  I used gold metallic paper for the "sweet" and the hearts!  Perfect with the Gold Lace Doily.  I painted an SRM mini clothespin black, to hold the "sweet"!  These embossed bags are so pretty, that they really take very little to decorate.  Gotta love that.  Next, I added a pink paper strip to match the heart, layered with a border sticker from the Love Sticker Sentiments set, then a thin strip of the gold metallic paper and one more adorable heart border from the Valentine We've Got Your Border set!

Now onto the Embossed Flourish Kraft Bag.  I love working with all things Kraft colored, it just makes all your layers really pop.  Look how wonderful those layered doilies look against the Kraft background.  I used a 6 inch pink lace heart doily layered with a 4 inch Round White Lace Doily.  I added a punched circle of metallic gold for a little more pop and a chipboard heart.  I added two SRM Stickers to my tag with the little clouds from the Love Sticker Sentiments and then wrapped it with Caribbean Solid Twine!

The possibilities are endless with SRM Glassine and Kraft bags, so many sized and embossed patterns.  I will be making a couple more for the little people in my life too!

Valentine Banners Treat Bag by Lorena

Hello, SRM friends! Lorena here today and I'm so happy to be back on the blog after all the Christmas craze! Today I have an idea for decorating the SRM Kraft Bags so they are perfect for packaging a flat Valentine's treat or gift. I used the larger bag size with a coloring book or perhaps a tall Valentine's card in mind.

SRM Stickers Blog - Valentine Banners Treat Bag by Lorena - #kraft #bag #stamps #stickers #borders #twine #valentine #treat

The first step was stamping rows of hearts with a light pink pigment ink. This kind of ink shows much better on kraft. I love the look of patterned kraft bags, and with the SRM kraft bags you can stamp your own custom designs! How fun is that? Hearts, chevrons, stripes, polka dots...
Once all the stamping was done, I created a bag topper with red cardstock and secured it to the bag with a bit of double sided adhesive tape on the inside of the cardstock. Use just a little strip, so the recipient can easily open the bag.

SRM Stickers Blog - Valentine Banners Treat Bag by Lorena - #kraft #bag #stamps #stickers #borders #twine #valentine #treat

 With the topper in place, now comes the fun part: decorating it! I wanted to show you how versatile the SRM border stickers can be, so I used the We've Got Your Border/Valentine stickers in different ways and not just as borders. First, I adhered the lovely banners border to a piece of red cardstock, trimmed them and adhered on the topper. Next, I also adhered to a piece of cardstock the hearts border that comes in the same sheet and fussy cut just the hearts to decorate the banner. Cute!!!

SRM Stickers Blog - Valentine Banners Treat Bag by Lorena - #kraft #bag #stamps #stickers #borders #twine #valentine #treat

Finally, I used another border to make the sentiment, and adhered Blossom baker's twine (pink and white) to the top of the banners so they appear to be "hanging" from the twine.  And there you have it! I hope this project inspires to give your SRM border stickers much more mileage. Oh, and anohter idea! This bag would be perfect to pack some stamped coloring sheets, and the new SRM clear stamps from Jane's Doodles are perfect for this! Just stamp a few sheets with different images and let them blank for the kids to color them :)
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Valentine Card Set by Shantaie

 Hi, I'm Shantaie and I have a sweet little Valentine set to share with you. Remember those little cardboard boxes filled with various Valentine note cards to hand out to our classmates? I recall there was always at least one particularly "romantic" saying that was both thrilling and embarrassing to give out!   Ah the "good old days"!  My Valentines were inspired by those little notes traded in elementary school, but much more grown up and glam.

SRM Stickers Blog - Valentine Card Set by Shantaie - #valentines #gift #stickers #twine, #doilies #clearenvelope #DIY

I picked a new SRM clear bag envelope to showcase the Valentines and all the little bits and pieces to give as a gift. I cut my Valentines from a Crafty Secrets creative scraps print, and embellished them with glitter and and gold doilies  I added sweet sentiments from the love fancy sticker sentiments and Valentine Stickers by the dozen.

SRM Stickers Blog - Valentine Card Set by Shantaie - #valentines #gift #stickers #twine, #doilies #clearenvelope #DIY

The bag contains several glass glittered cards and sweet little bits like tickets, buttons, and sequins to use on your cards or envelopes. Some of the cards are decked out with twine and little clothes pins.  To finish the gift bag I embellished the top with lace and a velvet knot, a canvas tag with a clear square sticker and a pearl heart stick pin. 

I hope you were inspired to revamp the Valentine note card and make a set of them for yourself...or for someone you "like like"!  :)

Happy Birthday Take Out Box by Michele

Michele here with a fun way to present a little something, something on someone's birthday! I love these new clear take out boxes!  I love that the recipient can see exactly what's inside and plus, it just looks so cool!  I didn't want to cover the box completely, so I used this circle die.  It was covered in glossy accents and given a dose of glitter.  

SRM Stickers blog - Happy Birthday Box by Michele - #takeoutbox #birthday #stickers #DIY

I added a Stargazer Lily flower from Spellbinders, ribbon, and a birthday sentiment from Stickers by the Dozen.  For a final touch I added a few sequins.  I am thinking of a friend of mine who is having a birthday soon, and she loves to get her nails done.  So how about a mani/pedi gift certificate, some nail polishes, and lotion?  
Perfect right? ;)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  What would you do with this fun take out box?

I Turtley Love You Card by Cassonda

Hi Everyone! Cassonda here with you today to share with you a fun Valentine card using the new Jane's Doodles Stamps. They are so fun! Remember when you were little and you would receive those silly, "punny" Valentines cards? Jane has made such a cute selection for the new release. You really should go check them out for yourself. 

I used some pretty papers by Doodlebug for the top and bottom of the card. I also wanted something soft for the background so I thought some printed vellum would be perfect. It's still in style, right? ;)

SRM Stickers Blog - I Turtley Love You Card by Cassonda - #janesdoodles #clearstamps #stickers #valentines #card

I used the Garden Friends stamp set for the sentiment and turtle. I colored in my little turtle with chalk and covered him with microbeads. To be precise, I used a wet glue with a sharp tip to draw the glue lines. Then, covered with the beads and let it set before tapping off the beads that didnt stick. After it was completely dry I adhered the turtle with foam tape. To finish off the card I added just a small strip of stitches stickers along the bottom edge.

SRM Stickers Blog - I Turtley Love You Card by Cassonda - #janesdoodles #clearstamps #stickers #valentines #card

One of my very best friend is obsessed with I will be sending this her way for Valentine's Day.   Hope you have a wonderful day!

SRM Stickers Blog - Jane's Doodles Clear Stamps - #stamps #stickers #owl

This little owl was just crying out for some wiggly eyes!

SRM Stickers Blog - Jane's Doodles Clear Stamps - #stamps #stickers #owl

Love Cards Trio by Stacey

Hello, SRM Stickers fans!
Stacey here today with a trio of LOVE using some darling SRM Stickers products!

This first Valentine card was created using a portion of the Red 6" Heart Lace Doily for a textured background layer.  The Labels by the Dozen/Valentine sticker was adhered to one of the Large Scalloped Circle Punched Pieces and the Stickers by the Dozen/Valentine sentiment was attached to a piece of coordinating paper, then trimmed as a banner to complete the card front.

SRM Stickers Blog - Love Cards Trio by Stacey - #valentine #borders #punchedpieces #stickers #heartdoily #labels #twine #shimmer #glassinebags

This card was SO FUN and EASY to make!  Do you ever have that lightbulb moment when crafting?!  Well, I had a moment like that when I was staring at the adorable We've Got Your Border/Valentine border sticker sheet.  I wanted to use the borders to create a subway-art effect, but why detach all of the borders from the sticker backing?!  I simply trimmed down a piece of the border sheet, keeping the backing attached and...VOILA!  It created a perfect and adorable background!  

SRM Stickers Blog - Love Cards Trio by Stacey - #valentine #borders #punchedpieces #stickers #heartdoily #labels #twine #shimmer #glassinebags

I covered the sticker panel with a piece of vellum and stitched it up, added a White Small Scalloped Circle Punched Piece with a Stickers by the Dozen/Valentine heart sticker.  There's a sweet 4" Round White Lace Doily tucked behind it all!  Oh, how I love doilies!

SRM Stickers Blog - Love Cards Trio by Stacey - #valentine #borders #punchedpieces #stickers #heartdoily #labels #twine #shimmer #glassinebags

 This last card was created using stickers from the We've Got Your Sticker/Sweet.  I love that big "SWEET" sentiment that makes a bold statement to the one you love!  The strawberry was adhered to a Red Large Scalloped Circle Punched Piece then adorned with The Twinery Red Shimmer Baker's Twine bow.  A 2.75" x 4.25" Glassine Bag was folded behind the card panel to display the berry and add softness.

TUBE Snowmen by Christine

Don't you just love versatile packaging? SRM has you covered in that department and today I am going to show you how I used the clear tubes to create some fun packaging!  Christine joining you with a unique twist on the tubes! I used the mini tubes and original tubes in combination with punched pieces to create snowmen!

SRM Stickers Blog - TUBE Snowmen by Christine - #tubes #minitubes #originaltubes #twine #stickerstitches #stickers #punched pieces #stickerborders

We haven't had our first snow day here yet - but it's Illinois so I know it is coming.  I created these little snowmen to be treats for my kids on that day.  I first curled the punched pieces and slid them into the tubes.  The original tubes (for my big kids) got three pieces and the mini tubes (for my little kids) got two pieces.  

SRM Stickers Blog - TUBE Snowmen by Christine - #tubes #minitubes #originaltubes #twine #stickerstitches #stickers #punched pieces #stickerborders

I used the following sticker sets to create these snowmen:

And then I used the following for their bodies:

Each snowman got a scarf in their favorite color using Striped Bakers Twine in Maraschino, Midnight Blue, Peapod, and Lilac.  

SRM Stickers Blog - TUBE Snowmen by Christine - #tubes #minitubes #originaltubes #twine #stickerstitches #stickers #punched pieces #stickerborders

Last step was to add some candy!  I added little chocolate balls but pretty much anything would work! Now I am just waiting on that snow!
