Valentine Treats

Tomorrow is Valentines Day, and I made some Valentine treat bags for both of my son's classes (40 total). Instead of using candy in the treat bags, I found some cute stuff (rings, erasers, squishy dinosaurs) at Target and the Dollar store. I found the small cellophane bags at Hobby Lobby in the party section.

To make the bag topper I simply cut out a rectangle and folded it in half to form the topper. Then I used my Spellbinder dies to cut small circles, squares and frame shapes. I then inked up my stamps and got to work. The very cute Valentine Treat stamps are from PaperTrey Ink.

I have fun making the Valentines, and I am pleased with how they turned out. But the funny thing is - my second grader just asked me when he could have 'Store' Valentines like Spongebob or Hotwheels. Aggh, go figure!

My sons also had to have a 'box' to take to school for Valentine Exchange. I found some very cute Mailboxes at They were sirprisingly easy to assemble!

To decorate the mailboxes, I used a free 'Monster Love' SVG from Lettering Delights. All the monsters had quite a bit of detail to them! I ended up taking a marker and drawing in some features because I didn't want to mess with the small pieces (stripes on the legs, cheeks etc.). My boys loved the monsters, and can't wait to take them to school.
