This past weekend, Mr. O and I had some fun making Valentine’s for his class party today. This year he wanted to pass out Sour Punch Straws. We added a pencil from the Target Dollar Spot and a cute Valentine sling shot guy we found at Michael’s to mix it up a bit. 😉
I’ve been on a Silhouette kick lately, so I browsed the 3D box selections and found one that would hold up to 8 pencils – perfect for Sour Punch Straws! The box was so easy to put together and it was a nice change from Valentines of the past where I decorated little bags of goodies.
I’ve been hoarding this paper ever since I did a Christmas card class years ago. I don’t know if they even make this pattern anymore, but it’s such a cute print and I love the option of colors. My favorite part of the Valentine is Owen’s cute writing – even though he hated writing out 28 (the fun ended at about six!).
Then with about 15 minutes before leaving for school, we whipped up his Valentine bag using our favorite bold black letter stickers! He was happy to tote his goodies to school and ready for their Valentine breakfast!
On one more fun note, today my Mom is having a Twilight party at work (wish I could be there!) so I made these cupcakes for her to take in! They turned out pretty yummy!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
