Steps:

  1. Paint the twig heart with the watermelon paint and allow to dry thoroughly.
  2. Use the Pilot silver marker pen to add some detail to the Cupid.
  3. Apply an even layer of black ink onto the rose stamp. Press the image onto the pink cardstock. Repeat until the cardstock has been filled with images of roses and allow to dry thoroughly.
  4. Use the black pen to draw small squiggles in between the stamped roses. Then use the silver pen to highlight certain areas of the roses, and to add some highlights to the squiggles.
  5. Glue the pink cardstock to one side of the bag.
  6. Glue the twig heart to the bag, and add Cupid to the middle of the heart.
  7. Make a bow with the paper raffia and glue it to the bottom of the heart. Fill the bag with delectable choccies and you are ready to share Cupid's message!
