Valentine Test Tube Treat Holder

Looking for something quick and easy to create for Valentine's?  I created this pattern in 2008, for use with Test Tubes.  I had found some that year at my local Michaels store with the Martha Stewart stuff and thought they'd be fun to alter.  I originally started out with a box that could hold four Test Tubes, then came up with a few other patterns for a Single Test Tube and a Double Test Tube

For the Valentine Holder, I used the beautiful Sugar Rush paper from Basic Grey, layering in on a piece of Dusty Durango, then onto my template.  The cute stamps are from the JustRite Tiny Words Set.  The xoxoxxo was stamped in Barn Red Distress Ink, punched out and layered on a Red circle.  For the sentiment, I actually trimmed off the "love and flower" from the original center, inked it with markers, then stamped on White, punched out, layerd on a Dustry Durango circle, then onto my xoxoxo stamped circle.  I attached a piece of Red Grosgrain to the Test Tube, then attached the stamped circle with a dimensional.

Details:
Stamps - JustRite Tiny Words Set, 1-3/16" Wood Stamper
Ink - Barn Red Distress Ink, Markers
Card Stock - Red, Dusty Durango, Basich Grey Sugar Rush
Other - Test Tubes, 1" Circle Punch, 1-1/4" Circle Punch, 3/4" Circle Punch, 1-3/8" Circle Punch, Dimensional, Sticky Strip
