Valentine Poppers

I saw this video at -  Stampin Pretty - and fell in love with it!  It brought back so many memories!  I remember when I was a kid and I went to a birthday party the first thing we would do was snap our popper (which made noise) and open it up to see what goodies were inside!  So I decided to make these for my daughter to take to the Wellness Center.  They came together pretty quick!

This is a great project to make multiples.  I first cut my DSP, made my score lines, put my tape on and then punched them with my envelope punch.  I then put them together.

Two nugget bars fit perfectly inside.  I then tied my ends with some twine I had picked up at Hobby Lobby.  It was such a large roll I couldn't pass it up.  With my app on my phone I had a 40% coupon and ended up paying only $3.81!!  You have to love those apps!!

I then used my SU stamp set PS - I Love you for the sentiment and punched them out with a 1" circle punch.  I popped them up with a dimensional and I was done.  A little red grass in my red tray and they are ready to go!

I still have some cards to make and cookies to bake this weekend, so I had better get going,  I like to make my cookie dough ahead of time and refrigerate it so it is ready to go.  Hope you have a great weekend.
