Polka Dot Punches

I got sidetracked yesterday as I was going to create something for Kristina's Colour Challenge, but once I get an idea in my head I have to go with it. So I've got these little pots that I bought from Jo which are perfect for altering and filling with sweets, and on my travels through blogland I spotted some milk carton containers which I thought would be just the job to carry the pots in. I've been searching for instructions on how to make them for awhile now and eventually I found a post on Lauren Meader's blog (fab lady by the way -very, very talented). So, I made one. It was actually miles too big for my little pots so I shrunk it to fit, and this is what I came up with....
I didn't have anything to put in the pots apart from one small packet of yoghurt raisins I pinched from Jake, and they only filled one pot! ....don't worry, I will let him eat them later. The choccie raisins look quite good actually..think I'll get some when I'm out tomorrow. Anyway, I was wanting to show you how fabulous the heart from the Sale-a-bration set called Polka Dot Punches looked when I white embossed it onto black cardstock - isn't it striking? And to match my little treat container I made a card. I love Polka Dots, so to tie in with the theme I did a bit more white embossing using the large background Polka Dot stamp from the main catalogue. Hope you like. tfl, Jo :) Supplies: Stamps - Polka Dot Punches (SAB) 113788, Polka Dot 109276, Yummy (SAB) 113782 & Circle of Friendship 107137 Colours - Real Red, Whisper White, Basic Black Other Materials - SU!

Delicious, delicious, delicious! Love this use of the stamps. Can you tell me if the heart has been punched out as it looks so cleanly cut?
Thank you for the inspiration.
