Hey, Valentine - Part 2

What is a Valentine Party at schools or daycares without some treats?  Every year when I make the Valentine Cards for my grandsons' daycare Valentine events, I always add a little treat.  Using the "Hey, Valentine" stamp set, I was able to create little toppers for a small snack.  You could easily just stamp the topper with one color as shown in the Occasions catalog.  But I chose to stamp the topper with Memento Ink and color in the image using one of my favorite products, "BLENDABILITIES"!

The supplies that I used to create this cute treat holder were:

STAMP SET:  Hey, Valentine!
PAPER:  Whisper White
INK:  Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
ACCESSORIES:  Jelly Beans (non SU), 1" x 8" Cello Bag, Gift Bag Framelits, Soft Sky, Pumpkin Pie and Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities

These are so  cute!  I used Jelly Beans to fill them but you could use M&M's.  I would use the special ones that you find around Valentine's Day.  They are usually white, pink, and red.  So those would be perfect!  Any kid would love to get one of these.  I was thinking of doing these, but not sure for which Grandson's class or maybe for the teachers in their daycare.  Quick and easy gift and it makes a statement.  The hardest part for me was stuffing it with the jelly beans.

Another day of no talking, taking meds and staying in bed, trying to kick this illness.  I guess this is what happens when you take care of everyone else first.  The last person always ends up getting it the worst.  Enjoy your day!
