Happy Valentine's Day ... & last day to WIN

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY from me to you .... xo

Today I wanted to share a couple of fun projects of similar style but different product ..... and by product I mean one is paper and chocolate and the other is all FOOD !!!

The first share is one that I created for Bella Blvd. featuring the adorable "Kiss Me" collection .....

I adhered my fave chocolate hearts to some candy sticks, cut a few hearts shapes from patterned paper, and added some cute cut shapes and stickers too .....

..... too cute .....

I wrapped some twine around the bottom of the vase as well as a few paper border strips and then I cut out lips and adhered them around the jar too !!

NOW for the FOOD ...... This is what I made for Alexander's classroom Valentine's Day treats !!

The idea is the same ..... I used kabob sticks and layered candies, marshmallows and strawberries up the stick .......

I think I was trying to make myself feel better about all the sugar by adding the fruit ;))

..... and for the fill in the vase I mixed mini marshmallows and cinnamon hearts !!  I wrapped some cute heart ribbon around the vase and then filled it with the treats ...... Fun right !!!!

I wish you all the most wonderful LOVE filled day today .......

  1. OH MY! I love the kabobs. I so wish my kids were still little so I could "borrow" that idea for class. My daughter is going to school to be a primary teacher…maybe when she has a class of her own! I said previously that I love cinnamon hearts but I also loved all the cards and crafts the kids brought home for me for valentines day. Each so special and sweet…just like them!

  2. Yummmm chocolate, too cute! Love the Strawberry Heart Kabobs, super cute idea and they look really yummy! I will have to remember this idea for next year for my co-workers, they would love it!

  3. Love them!!! My favorite Valentine's gift was my Kobo Glo ♡♡♡

  4. I saw you bring those marshmallows and strawberries at pick-up and I wanted to maul you down and steal them! lol They look great!

  5. Awe - thanks Leslie :)) They were VERY well received in the classroom ;))
