Well, I've made some more Valentine treats....these are for the kiddos at church! I was going to make more of the treats that I made last week, but then decided to make something different.....just to change it up a bit! :)
I had picked up 2 packs of pencils (10ct) to originally include in theValentine treats that I made this year. They were really cute pencils in assorted colors and patterns for Valentines' Day. So I began with those.....hmmmmm, what to do with a pencil. :) Well, this is what I came up with. (I didn't photograph all 20, but just three of them instead so you could see more detail on them.)
I decided to make 3x3 cards as my little Valentine cards! After making them, I realized that the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog was having a challenge called Valentiny cards so these were perfect for that! :)
On the front of these cards, I used some very cute tags that I downloaded from Smitten Blog Designs. They have some really, really cute printable Owl Valentines too that are perfect for pencils, but I had already made these! :) On some of these tags, I added 3D stickers I had picked up in the Target $1 bin. I rounded the corners of them and then added buttons and twine to some of them. I used my Crop-A-Dile on the side to punch two holes for tying the ribbons. Then I just added coordinating ribbons to attach the cards to the pencils.
Now on the inside, I just cut the same size tag from white cardstock, and used several different stamps......the heart is a $1 stamp from ACMoore, the "Jesus Loves You" stamp is from Inkadinkado, and the "From:" is from My Craft Spot - Sweet Sentiments Set #2. Then I just wrote "Carley" with a red pen since she's not exactly old enough to write her own name being 2 and all! :)
I thought these turned out to be very cute Valentine gifts! I didn't get these in the picture, but I added a Valentine Smarties candy to the backs of these by just applying a Glue Dot. I had to add something sweet to them of course! :)
Thanks for visiting and come back by anytime!
