Cute Valentines Candy

Valentine's Day is such a fun holiday. My minnies are always so excited about making Valentines for their classmates and I've been thinking about what to do for a few days. This is an easy craft that is cute. Here's the prototype of what the girls will give to their friends this year. I'm waiting on a personalized stamp so that the girls can stamp their "Happy Valentine's Day, xoxo Natalia and Alexia" on the inside flap.

All of the decoration on the outside is easily made using different punches from Stampin' Up. Last night, the girls helped me punch out some hearts and circles. We're making about 60 of these, so it's good that we start early! I like it that these are easy enough for the girls to help. I love handmade Valentines!

This is a great treat for a special Valentine! It's just a king size Hershey bar covered with some embellishments. I kept the original Hershey wrapper and used it as a foundation for the other layers of paper. Again, punches and my new cricut make the task easy and relatively fast.

How do you decorate for Valentine's Day? Do you have little people at home who take Valentines to school? What will they put in their little mailboxes this year? I'd love to hear your ideas!
