Happy Heart Day Projects

[EDITED 2/14, 5:30 pm to fix (again!) the link to Pillow Box Pattern. It should be working now!]

The kids had their Valentine's Day parties at their respective preschools today. We worked on valentines for their classmates all week long. I love the way they turned out!

(The red ones are Thomas' and the purple ones are Claire's.) First, I stamped the elephant in Basic Black on a 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" piece of Whisper White. The kids colored them in with crayons. Then I used the Crop-a-Dile to punch holes for the suckers while they colored/stamped/stickered/signed the colored pieces (which were 2-3/4" x 3-3/4"). I threaded the suckers and then used Tombow Multi adhesive to stick them together. Here's a close-up of the one I did. (The crayons are Crayola!)

And since I'm running out of time to post these, here are a couple more Valentine's Day Projects with this Happy Heart Day stamp set.

Click here for the Pillow Box pattern. It's much larger than the Big Shot die. For this project, I cut off one end of the pillow box to fit the bag of candy.
