Valentine Treats

Hi! I can’t believe how fast February is flying by! Today I have some Valentine Treats to share that I made for Ariel’s preschool class! It’s sad to me that she is growing up and will be in kindergarten already next year. I am happy for her as I know she loves preschool and was so ready for it and has fun but where have the years gone? I do have to admit that it’s exciting to be able to make treats for her class! Here is the lollypop Valentines I made:

Here is the inside:



Aren't these so cute? I had an idea of Valentine suckers to make for Ariel's class and than last week I went over to my friends place who is a SU demo and she showed me these she had made for one of her groups.  It was different and simular to my idea and she had an extra bag of suckers so I went with her idea!  It saved me money as I didn't have to go out and get some new stamps and paper (I had the paper!)  Plus my wonderful friend helped me make them!  I stamped the heart and than used a circle punch to punch out the middle and glued that down to the inside.  Than I put acetate and stamped that with the Happy Valentines Day with black Staz On!  Isn't it cute?  We wrote the kids names and Ariel's on the back.  Ariel also gave them out at her music class and on sunday we have a birthday party for two of her friends and the kids will be handing out Valentines so I have to make some more!

I also made something for the teachers:


Never leave anything to the last day which is what I did with these! I quickly whipped these up at well 10:30! Although one of the teacher's told me personally today that she really liked it (oh and loved the snowman card set I gave her for Christmas)  I also asked her if she would like some handmade thank you cards for Easter and she said she would love it!  I think most teachers would appreciate blank thank you cards!  And the night before since I was signed up for baking I made these cupcakes:



You can't tell in the picture but the paper wrappes have hearts on them!  I also put some larger conversation hearts on them!  I made cherry chip cupcakes since kids really like that flavor!  I bought another mix to make some for me as well they are yummy and I have some icing left!

Cupcakes look yummy! Love the sucker treats and the teacher treats! You were a busy mom for Valentines! I made a few cards for Carver's preschool class but... that was it! :) If I could quit blogging and staying up so late every night... I might be a better mom! :) ha
