Preschool Valentines

Today is Callie's first preschool Valentine's Day.  I had a million ideas but we ended up doing the cute candy bags from Paper Pumpkin since they were perfect and her little hands could do them. 


I also thought she might want to exchange Valentine's Day cards so I made up this little beauty with envelopes.  It was fun to play a little bit with a very playful image!

I colored the fish using the Coastal Cabana, Pumpkie Pie, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, and Cherry Cobbler Blendabilites Markers.  She wrote her name on the back using a White Chalk Marker and then put the names of her classmates on the envelopes. After that, she was exhausted and said her friends need shorter names!

As for treats, before she settled on the goodie bags, I had to show her the "options". 

These were all made using the Hey, Valentine stamp set.

Treat #1 - Sour Cream Holder

This treat is hiding in a sour cream holder.  To make these, you put sticky strip or fast fuse along the two long sides and one short side of the Designer Series paper (I used the Stacked with Love). Roll it into a tube first and then press one end shut.  Add your treat and close the other end the opposite way.  I used our small handheld stapler to add staples to make sure it stayed shut!  When coloring the pirate, I used several of our Blendability markers.  I even added a few rhinestones to the treasure chest and colored them with the darkest Daffodil Delight Blendability.  Gold should be shiny right?

Treat #2 - Treat Bag
This little bag is also made using a single sheet of the Stacked with Love DSP.  You score the long side at 1".  Turn the paper and score at 1/2, 1 1/2, 3 1/2, & 5 1/2.  Cut the 1" score lines on the long side so that the bottom of the box will fold in.  Put adhesive on the 1/2 flap and adhere to make the box.  Then fold in the bottom pieces and seal with adhesive.  This one is closed with an In Color clothespin and colored with Tangelo Twist, Real Red, and Pink Pirouette markers.

Treat #3 - 8 x 1 Cello Bag

The third image in this stamp set works perfectly with the tall cello bags.  I stuffed this one with candy hearts (which don't taste nearly as good as they did when I was in school...)  I colored the bird with the Cherry Cobbler and Pink Pirouette Blendabilities markers and adhered with a dimensional.

I hope you had a wonderful time making goodies with your kidlets for the holiday.  Check out tomorrow to see the Valentines Day cards I did for my husband.  I love that Valentine's Day is on Saturday so I can hide them all over the house.

Have a craftastic day,
