little valentine's

Sunday, February 12, 2012

the weekend was a quiet one. it was a cold weekend and after church and brunch, the little guy and i spent some time preparing his school valentine's treats for his buddies. 

he is bigtime into lego star wars lately and it was one of those days that a store bought lego star wars treat was just the perfect valentine's for his little friends. i am glad that he is willing to share that obsession with them and is just ecstatic to hand them out. we received strict intructions from his teachers that they themselves need to write their names and their classmates' names on the cards so he spent a great deal of time perfecting the scribbles. 

of course, i was not about to give up my semi-crafty skills and  helped out on the simple packaging for it.  check out the little guy's handwriting below. i think more practice is in order for him during the summer in preparation for kindergarten! 

Little Valentine's

for the easy bags to hold the stickers and cards, here are the supplies : 

smallest sized ziploc
craft scissors
card stock paper

all i did was cutout the patterned paper (i used a polkadot red & white one - not too girly but still perfect for valentine's) just enough to fit as a favor topper to dress up the package. i trimmed the edges using a pretty craft scissor for an added design touch. finally, i glued them using my trusty tombow glue.

Packaging supplies

you can kick it up a notch and stamp a valentine-themed design (with the help of the little one) on the favor paper topper if you are using a plain colored cardstock. but since we are using a patterned one here, i left that out and just trimmed the edges with a fancy craft scissor. 

Ready to go!

......and here are the valentine's treats all ready to be handed out this tuesday!

Lili, thank you for the comment on my blog. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised when I realized that you're the same PazT from the old TPF days! Can't wait to go through your blog archive.

His little friends will be so happy tomorrow! One of mine (little guy) has personalized Valentine's from Erin adorable. The older one was not at ALL excited about having to take Valentine's to school, so we scoured the CVS tonight for the left overs. 3D Dogs and Cats is what he came up with. And he tells me that when he's a dad, his children won't have to do Valentine's. Where have I gone wrong??!! (laughing!)
