Love Tokens...

Remember me showing you these, 39p from home bargains

Well after them sitting about for a while i was not feeling inspired, I thought the wording on them was cheesy and a bit cheap, with words like greatest love, sweet heart and beauty I really was at a loss as to what to do with them!!!

Then an idea hit!

With my trusty stampin' up scalloped punch in one hand and some black card in the other I transformed them into these quite nice looking tokens!!! The embossed heart was on the back of the tokens but in my opinion looked way better!

I then printed some love token themed headings on to red card and die cut to make little bag toppers...

...and voila!

I just jazzed up the printed toppers with some little paperchase heart stickers here and there

Bloody inspired !!
Well done Lisa!
I wasn't keen on the cheesy sayings on mine either, and only used the more "normal" ones in my Hug in a Mug hot chocolate packets - now I know what I am going to do with the ones I have left over.
