Guess who’s in the house today!? Our Tiny Chefs are back! I invited some of my young crafty friends over for a little creative time at Ms. Taylor’s last week! They each received our NEW Kids Valentine Card Kit to create handmade valentines for their friends and classmates. It was so fun to see the excitement in their eyes as they stamped their own masterpieces. These kids were soooo creative and I just LOVE the ideas they came up with! Here’s a short video from our crafty time:
Perhaps you have a son or daughter, grandson or granddaughter, niece or nephew, maybe even a neighbor who might enjoy creating their own Valentines. Or maybe you’re a kid at heart and looking to make some super sweet and simple Valentines yourself! *wink* That’s just what our Valentine Card Kit is for and it’s a steal at just $7.95!
The kit includes the following supplies:
- 20 – 3 1/4″ square flat card bases (5 each of 4 colors)
- 20 – 3″ square image panels
- 20 – 3″ squares of patterned paper (5 each of 4 patterns from the Doodlebug Sweet Cakes collection)
- 12 Heart Stickers
- Assorted cardstock and glittered chipboard heart die cuts
- 3 yards of ribbon (1 yard each of 3 styles)
Everything is packaged together in a clear bag with a cute label sticker and tied with ribbon. You just need to provide stamps (goes great with the Love Monsters stamp set), crayons or colored pencils and they’ll be crafting in no time! Creativity is contagious… pass it on!
I wanted to use the Valentine Card Kit to make a little something for the kids who joined us for the video session. I stamped each of my image panels with different monsters from the Love Monsters stamp set and colored them with Copics. I added a small strip of patterned paper to the bottom and used a black marker to write my ‘To: From:’ I thought it was so cute that all the kids were calling me “Ms. Taylor” during the video (I’m not used to that!) so I signed all of my Valentines from Ms. Taylor. I bought some heart shaped Crunch bars at the store, punched a hole in the corner of the candy wrapper, and tied the card on with ribbon. I put together 6 of these Valentines in a matter of minutes so 20 would be no problem to complete quickly!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I know the kids are going to be checking out today’s post (they were so excited to be “movie stars”!!) so leave them a little love with your comments!
