It’s February already?!

7 Feb

It seems like we were JUST in the midst of all of the holiday fun!  Now…January has breezed by and we are a full week into February!  Where does the time go?

I had plans to make these super cute Valentines  I saw at Dandee, for my sweet boy’s class, but I started to run out of time and to be honest, he didn’t quite understand the play on words.  Maybe we will revisit the idea in a few years for one of the girls.

I wanted to stick with the bracelet idea because I don’t really like to give food items since we have a few allergies in our class and I also don’t like to constantly load the kids up with extra sugar.  I was able to find premade friendship bracelets for a great price on Amazon and VistaPrint was having a sale on their Valentine cards!  I used a hole punch to make slots to hold the bracelets, and we were done in just a few minutes.

VistaPrint always does a great job.  These were on a nice, heavy cardstock and were full-color on both sides.

Little-man was glad to be able to personalize each one with his friends’ names.  I was happy because of the cost!  Each card with bracelet only cost about 30¢!

I hope you all have a Happy Valentine’s Day!  I’d love to know what special projects you are doing to celebrate.

    I bought Lucy some valentine’s from The Paper Source (love them) but quickly realized I could have made them with the Silhouette. So then we made accessories (kind of like the photobooth props) with the Silhouette and embellished what The Paper Source provided.

    And for Maddy… I have no idea if they even do them in middle school. Sigh.

      Ooohh, Elena…post pics! I loved the “popcorn” cupcakes, by the way! Now that I have a little more time, I plan to stalk your site again.
