Here is the collection of gifts I made for my Cupid, Robyn. I put her gifts in brown paper bags tied off with some Kiwi Kiss Stripped Ribbon and clear acrylic tags stamped with which day to open. The circle tag frame is from Frames with a Flourish and the numbers are from Typeset Numbers, which is retired. To stamp on the acrylic tags, I used StazOn ink.
Day One was this gift box filled with a bag of Hershey's Kisses - the lid is covered in Dazzling Diamonds glitter and it is tied closed with a strip of the Kiwi Kiss Striped Ribbon. I used the swirl stamp from Baroque Motif and added some small hearts from a retired set, Time Well Spent. The sentiment 'You Rock' is from Just Jawing.
Day Two was another food gift with a bag of Pepperidge Farm Raspberry cookies, in a Top Note Die wrapper and a little booklet of Tea to go with. The stamps here are from Time Well Spent and from Love Matters, both retired sets.
Day Three was a Card Organizer I made using my new Bind It All and a tutuorial from Splitcoast. This was my first Card Organizer made this way, and I can't wait to make a few more - I love the pockets for cards/envies each month with the little calendar on each one. I added a pocket on the inside cover to hold stamps. I used Baroque Motifs again and the alphabet set is Outline Alphabet. I added a little shading to the letters with my blender pen. The 'for you' sentiment, All Holidays, is punched with a small Oval Punch and layered inside the oval frame from the Styled Silver Hodge Podge Hardware kit.
I hope my Cupid liked her gifts as much I as enjoyed receiving my Cupid gifts! What a fun swap!
