Vintage Valentines

Hello Friends,
Thank you for stopping by. I have been having some fun making Valentine Goodies, Hope you enjoy my creations.This is my Valentines for the Cricut Circle Magazine Challenge for Feb. It needs to have 4 cuts and Candy included.. I also entered this into the weekly challenge forThe Shabby Tea Room Sweet Heart Challenge( my 1st time entering a challenge with TSTR ) and this is the inspiration piece

I Found some vintage stickers to add to the tag, antiqued it and put some glossy accents crackle to make it look old I think these turned out lovely and look like handmade Vintage Valentines. The candy is placed inside these cup cake papers and sealed with tape. My cuts are from the Cricut Imagine (built in images) making my total of 4 cuts.
So I was looking for pieces to stage my other projects and ran across this piece of china in a cabinet at home I forgot about and wow ...looks like I tried to fashion my piece after this, although that was not the case, but how cool is that.

once you get to this point take the cupcake wrapper that has tape or glue on it and seal them together. You can use a pinking shears around the edges if you like, antique the edges and when your ready you just rip it open and get your candy.
