Be Mine

I don't care for strawberries, so the traditional chocolate covered strawberry is not something I wish to receive for Valentine's Day. However, I heard mention of a delicious concoction called strawberry marshmallows, and vaguely remember someone mentioning that they had dipped them in chocolate. Sounds yummy!
Unfortunately I don't like most of the candy chocolate coating and I didn't have any of my good stuff in the pantry. So, quick thinker that I am, I grabbed a can of chocolate frosting and proceded to create my own version. They are delicious!

I used standard popsicle sticks and inserted them into the marshmallows (easy!), then stirred up the frosting so that it was more fluid and stuck the marshmallow into the frosting and twisted until I was happy with the amount of frosting on the marshmallow.

Then I arranged them in a cute glass jar with tissue paper to keep them secure.
The Label is created with the Cricut Machine and the Fabulous Finds and Songbird cartridges. Three ovals were cut from Fabulous Finds in chocolate and pink paper from Bazzil. The title was cut in white for both the shadow and the script. I colored the shadow with CTMH ink Hollyhock and layered. The flower is from Prima and the stone center is from a pack of cell phone bling that I had left over from another project.

Now, what shall I do with this project?
