For some reason, this year, I have gotten into Valentine's Day more than I ever have. Maybe it was all the cute projects/ideas on the How Does She site. Yeah, that was probably it. Valentine's Day Ideas
I saw these jars with vinyl lettering posted and thought: What an EASY teacher gift! So I enlisted the help of one of my girlfriends, Windy. She owns a vinyl lettering business and does the cutest stuff! Check it out here. She happily agreed to cut vinyl for me and a bunch of other friends. I thought: ok, now all I need is to stop by Hobby Lobby and pick up jars. But.... then I found these little jewels I'd been saving up: Gold Canyon Candle jars that were cleaned an prepped and just waiting to be filled with, something. I used these free downloaded Valentines by CreativeMama.com as tags for each jar
Next up, I loved the tin mailbox idea for each of my kids. Once again, Windy helped me out and cut all my vinyl. I can't wait to surprise the kids with these little cuties filled with Valentine's Day treats! I couldn't resist, I HAD to get the pink one for myself.
Finally, I tried the heart shaped Rice Krispie Treats. I used a spatula and melted milk chocolate for some goodness on top. Then I sprinkled with some V-Day Wilton's sprinkles. Once again, I used the free downloaded Valetines. The treat bags I picked up at Michael's. At first I was hoping for some heart printed ones, but they must have all been sold out. It was Feb. 11th, afterall. But I actually like the pink polka dot better, because I can use them for anything now.
