Valentine Treat Holders & a Card

Here are a few Valentine treat holders I made out of some empty Prima flower bottles.

First I took some stiffened felt and cut it to fit almost entirely around the middle of the bottle.
Cut some cardstock almost as long, punched the borders and attached an eyelet (through felt and cardstock) at each side with my crop-a-dile.
Attached the felt with some ribbon on back put through the eyelets
Wound some twine around the neck of the bottle, tied the scalloped image on and attached a bow.
Recycled Prima flower bottles
Stiffened felt from M's
Cardstock - K&Co. Lovely
Circle, scallop and border punches - EK Sucess
Stamped Images from M's Dollar Bin
ribbon from M's
Sentiment From Emma Aguilar's You Had Me at Chocolate set www.creativetimeforme.com

For the card I used some beads and a stick pin from M's jewelry section to create an accent for the bow.
Cardstock - Papertrey ink Plum Pudding, Hibiscus Burst
Patterned Paper - Martha Stewart
Ribbon from my stash
Stamped image from M's dollar bin
Sentiment from Emma's set also
