I wanted to share the Valentine Cards that Liam and Tessa made for their classmates. Both picked little goodies to give to their classmates so we had to do some kind of 3D project. Plus, it had to be simplified to allow both kids to complete with little frustration on everyone’s parts!

Liam had two designs, one for the toys he picked for the boys and one he picked for girls. For the boys, he picked little toy dinosaurs but I didn’t have any dinosaur stamps or MDS dinosaur brush art! Time to get creative. Punch art is a great “go to” for this situation, but small kindergarten hands and tired mommy would not go well when mixed with 16 Valentine’s. So, I decided to do my punch art in My Digital Studio and create a small bag topper Liam could use for his dinosaurs.

Once I printed onto Whisper White card stock, I cut and folded for Liam. He wrote all the names and his sisters helped him staple to the cellophane bag.

For the girls, we used the Totally Amazing stamp set, Fancy Favor die cut, 2 1/2 inch circle punch, Real Red card stock and bakers twine. Liam picked out fun little Valentine notepads.

Liam loves mazes so I knew we’d be buying the Totally A-maze-ing stamp set and it worked great for his Valentine’s. I cased the envelope from another demo, but I failed to write down her information. So, if this was you idea first, let me know! Anyhow, cut your card stock to 8 1/2 x 5 1/2. Then use the fancy favor to cut one front and two sides of the box (don’t use the side with the sealing flap). Cut off the rectangular bottom flaps and then fold and stick. Here is a picture of the back:

Embellish and decorate. His sisters and I helped with attaching the twine but Liam glued on the mazes and wrote all the names.

Tessa did a similar design using My Digital Studio for the front artwork.

The boys had sports themed notepads which did not fit so we used the scalloped square die cut with folded card stock and sealed two sides:

Again, I tied on the twine but Tessa did the rest.

I can’t wait to hear how their parties went and see if their classmates liked their Valentines.

Happy Valentine’s Day to You! God Bless and Happy Stampin’
