Valentine Treat Bags and Tutorial!

Good morning and happy weekend to you!  
I have  some Valentine treat bags to share with you. I used my Cricut to cut the cupcake shape.  I also used heart doilies, kraft bags, seam binding, and some fun little details to make these extra special.

If you are interested in seeing my creative process, here it is! ;)
To doll up my cupcakes a bit I cut out the center of a doily 

My idea was to have a part of the doily peeking out from under the frosting. 

Cut off any excess.

I love texture paste to create frosting!  Here are my two pieces for the cupcake tops. 
I applied the paste with a paint brush, but I've been known to give it a "schmear" with my fingers too!

For the bottom layer of frosting, I sprinkled a clear coarse glitter (not shown) and for the top piece I sprinkled with this pretty blue.  (Martha Stewart glitters)
Adhere the two pieces together. 

For my cherries on top, I added glossy accents.  Once they were dry I added them to the top of my cupcake. 
I just added some pretty seam binding and heart shaped doily to a kraft bag filled with sweet treats.

I hope you liked the treat bags!  
I am looking forward to a 3 day weekend.  Cortney has her once a year "big" basketball/cheerleading game.  It is always an event we look forward to, especially this year, since this will be her last game. 
The rest of the weekend will be dedicated to shoveling the piles of laundry and dust bunnies that have invaded my house!

We took the kiddos to a hotel for the weekend.  Kyle was heading back to college after being off for 3 weeks, so being the good sport he is, he decided to go with us.  Of course I wasn't allowed to take pictures of him, but I promise you, he was there! LOL! We ate, we bowled, we played board games in the hotel room, and of course, we swam!
Here is my very happy fish swimming her lil' heart out!
So glad she had a few hours to do what she loves. 
To feel physical freedom.
And to see her smile from ear to ear. 
Have a great day!
