Class Valentine's!

Good morning, what a busy weekend it was at our house as I am sure it was for many families. We spent the weekend finishing up Valentine's Day treats for classmates. I am going to share my two youngest boys Valentine's Day treats now and will share what my older kids made later. First up is Jacob's. He is in 3rd grade and wanted something a little more cool for his class. For his he wanted the Bitty Box cut out with the Big Shot in Real Red and Melon Mambo. Then he used the stamp set Friends Rock and we stamped the You Rock! on Whisper White Card Stock with Basic Gray Classic Ink. He colored each with the Watercolor Pencils. He added Tempting Turquoise and Rich Razzleberry behind the Whisper White Card Stock then attached them to the top of the box. Each box contains a bag of Sweethearts candies. He signed his name either on the side or bottom.
Next is Jaxon's Valentine's Day project. He wanted to give his friends pencils as well as candy so his incorporates both. We used the Petal Card Die which is retired (sorry) and cut them out Real Red and Melon Mambo. Each petal card was made into a heart by folding back the bottom pieces and gluing them with Tombow. This created a pocket on the back that we put the skittles in. I cut the tip off of the heart and slid the pencil in. Each heart was decorated with either a boy or girl Build a Bear from the Beary Best Friends Stamp Set. Jaxon colored each bear with the Watercolor Pencils and then a used the Aquapainter to blend the pencils. We used the I {heart} hearts Stamp Set to stamp the Friend Heart in either Real Red or Melon Mambo that each of the bears is holding. The hearts were punched out with the Full Heart Punch. He signed his name after I took the picture on the top of the heart. Both boys were happy with the way their Valentine's turned out. We also made treats for their teachers but that will also have to wait for another time as I have a chocolate cake to bake for my family for our Valentine's day dinner. I am making it heart shaped since they love chocolate cake! Have a great Valentine's Day and thanks for stopping by, Tonya
