Classroom Valentine's Day Treats

I'm always thinking of something special to make my students for the holidays.  I know that they will probably rip into them and tear them up, but maybe one of them will remember how special they were to them.  I loaded up some small cellophane bags with the all time favorite conversation heart candies.  I used the Doodlecharms cartridge to create the letter die cut and used a white gel pen to accent the die cut.  I cut a pink heart and popped it up onto the die cut.

My students always love pencils and erasers.  I also used Doodlecharms cartridge and my gypsy to create the holder.  I designed the scalloped heart in one layer of my gypsy.  I used the oval shape from George and created the holes for the pencil.  I then created the heart (red) later in a second layer in my gypsy.  I grouped the holes from the scallop heart and then copied and pasted them onto the second later with the red heart.  I lined them all up on top of the scallop layer so that when I cut them both out, they would line up perfectly!  I then stamped a sentiment and used metallic pencils to color the hearts in.  I then attached a heart eraser above the sentiment with a glue dot!

If you have any questions, please let me know.  Thanks for looking!!!
