It's Time for Valentines.......

This is what we did this weekend.....made homemade Valentines for my kids classrooms. Fun!

My daughter is 5 and she was totally into making Valentines where as my son who is 7 1/2 really didn't have much interest.  I'm sure he would of preferred the store bought Lego Star Wars Valentine kits if I gave him the choice.  Here's what we came up with for our......

Valentines Suckers



It's a bird, it's a plane......




How cute are these guys?  Don't worry, I'll tell you how I made them at the end of my post.  My son wrote his name on the cape and we stamped "you're awesome" from K.Andrew Designs -Food for Thought stamps.


For my daughters Valentines, we chose to use the Paisley Cartridge to make these simply sweet treats.
The cards are cut at 2.63 inches high.

She wrote her name on the heart cut out and stamped a sentiment from K. Andrew Designs It's Valentines stamps.


I know you're probably like me and said, "How did she make those Super Hero's?"

Well, the idea was from Pinterest (where else?) as Super Hero Birthday Favors so I modified mine for Valentines.

The Pin actually had a template to use but there was NO WAY I was going to cut 30 cape's and masks by hand so I used  my Cricut & Gypsy to create my own. 

Here's the link to the original template or

here's my tutorial......

Paper Superhero Cape

The Cape and Mask are both from Paper Doll Dress Up (Super Hero).

I trimmed the collar off the cape because it was looking more like a vampire cape to me than Super Hero. Punch a whole for the stick ( no tape/glue needed)

The mask on PDDU is only a face mask and I wanted a wrap around mask so I stretched and welded 2 rectangles to each side of the mask.   I then used a glue dot to adhere the mask.

The red heart is a punch and the V is from Batman font cut at 1 inch.

 Thanks for looking and Happy Valentine's Day!
