Valentine's Day Party Pack

and Valentines for Guests

I had an idea and just had to keep running until I finished.  I wanted to use as many 3 Girl JAM products as possible to show everyone how wonderful each and every item truly is to craft with.
I was able to use
Crinkle Ribbon

Flair Buttons
the Bow Maker

I  can honestly say that this was the first time I was able to really envision a project and have the outcome be exactly what I was hoping for when I finished.

I started with an empty Sangria Bottle...mmmmmm (LOL).  As I was peeling the label off, I realized how sticky it was and decided to stick the label to a piece of clear plastic from my stash.  I then punched out about 20 hearts with my handheld puncher (not sure of the brand, cuz I have had it for years).  Now I had handmade stickers to use on the bottle for the next step. 
^^^rough draft (lol)^^^
I placed the hearts all over the front of the bottle.  Then my sweet hubby, Lance,  spray painted the bottle for me  using Krylon Glitter Blast - Cherry Bomb.  It was fun to watch him because he ended up with the "Grabbing Rainbows" Hands.  The nozzle stuck a bit and the glitter paint spewed uncontrollably as he continued to spray the bottle . . . LOL.  He was so afraid the bottle would run out before he could finish the back side of the bottle.  All was well, though.  I just L♥VE the finished sparkle the paint gave the bottle, too!  The stickers were just peeled off after the paint dried to create small heart "windows".

For my Cookie Box, I used a DIY Valentine Mailbox I picked up at one of the local dollar stores last year.  I simply spruced it up using Crinkle Ribbon by 3 Girl JAM.  The two red colors are
Red - from the July 2012 Special Bundle (not available at this time) and Holly Berry from the Winter Bundle.  I wrapped the red first (like a present) then created a "Bunched Bow" using my Bow Maker .  Let me tell you, this thing has taken my crafting to an entirely different level. 
I ♥ my 3GJ Bow Maker

All of the cards were created similarly, just with different stamps, inks, and embellishing.  All of the card stock is from my Scrap Stash.
