Valentine Treats

Here are the goody bags that my kids will be giving to their classmates this Valentines.  I like to make them generic so that each child is treated the same and no one feels left out.  I also like the opportunity to stay away from popular themes like Disney Princess, Strawberry Shortcake, Transformers, Blues Clues, High School Musical, etc.  When I make them by hand I don't have to worry so much about age appropriateness.  The boys might go yuck when they see all the red, pink and hearts but they are probably going to be more concerned with the goodies inside than the packaging ;)  There's a lollipop, chocolate heart and sugar cookie.

My daughter decided on the Verve sentiment and then I went from there.  Bittersweet patterned paper along with the Top Note die and the cuttlebug heart embossing folder.  This project gave me a chance to use up a lot of the Purely Pomegranate cs I've been hoarding for the last year and a bit.  I still have a tone of the Bittersweet paper but I'm sure I'll find even more uses for it.

Anyhow I should go now and put the rest of these bags together (53 in all).  I've got all the pieces I need, now I just have to sit down and do it!

Good night!
