Valentine Treat Bag with Petal Cone cuts

I thought I'd better bag up the Valentine M&M's before there weren't anymore left!  So I got out my small cello bags and gave it some thought...Here's what happened...
 To get the scalloped topper, I took a piece of 3 1/4 x 4 inch real red card stock and folded it in half with my bone folder.  I laid the fold right up next to the cut line of the scallop on the die and taped it in place on the new Bigz Petal Cone die from the new Occasions Mini Catalog 2011. (Download by clicking the catalog on the right hand side of the screen)

Then I add a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock to the half circle portion (petal) of the petal cone die and taped it in place.
Run these through the Big Shot sandwiched between the acrylic plates.
 And you'll end up with these two pieces.
 Staple the scallop you created over the top of the bag.
 Use your snail adhesive to adhere the white petal to the front of the bag.
 From the back of the bag, trim the extra white card stock close to the edge of the topper.  Your paper snips are great for this job!
Stamp the trio of hearts on whisper white card stock in real red ink and punch out using the heart to heart punch. 

In the photo above I have one in Melon Mambo and Real Red.  Aren't they adorable?  And they were SO easy to make.  Hope you get to try one for yourself! Here's a printable tutorial for your use.
I'm going to have to come back later for all the details of the product...bedtime for the little one!
