Made With Love

Die-Versions' Made With Love Sweet Petite and one of the Cold Weather Wee Petites are combined to create the perfect label for your holiday gift giving.

Most everyone loves a homemade gift from the heart and this one combined a oversized mug with homemade hot chocolate  mix.  All the recipient has to do is add hot water.

To start off, die cut the Made with Love and cover the center heart with Distress Stickles dry glitter (Rock Candy).  Let dry.  Die cut the steaming mug of deliciousness from the Wee Petites die.  There are five small dies that are connected with a thin wire.  You can either cut the wires with scissors to have each one separate, or you can leave them all together and die cut all at once.  For me, it's easier to snip the wires so I can die cut which shape I want when I want.

I die cut this mug out of manilla cardstock and then covered with Mountain Mint velvet glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  Liquid Applique was applied to the "steam" and along the edge of the mug and heated.  This makes the Liquid Applique bubble and add lots of dimension to a project.  I used dimensional dots and adhered this to the center of the glittered heart.

The base was cut using a scalloped circle and was also covered with Mountain Mint velvet glitter.  Since this is a semi-transparent glitter, the color of the cardstock makes subtle difference in the final outcome.  As I mentioned earlier, the mug was die cut from manilla cardstock and the circle from white cardstock.  This is a great was to add subtle differences while using the same glitter.  (Of course this wouldn't work with opaque glitters.)

Adhere the Made With Love die cut to the glittered circle to complete the label.  As a finishing touch, I added a small strip of double sided adhesive to the center of the back of the label and adhered the ribbon.  Tie it around the bag and your gift from the heart is all ready to give.
