Valentine's for Preschool Classmates



I had so much fun putting together these valentine's for my daughter's classmates party. Yep. I know what your thinking.  You're wondering why there is an "I" in that sentence instead of a "we". My little girl loves to be in the craft room. She loves to use my Prismacolor markers, and use the die-cutting machine, so I was certain she would have fun putting together these tags. Let's just say that we had fun brainstorming what the tag's would look like, but when it came time to put them together, playing with her little brother sounded much more fun! LOL

I used Verve's adorable Monkey from this set.  I added a set of hearts that I cut with a Cuttlekids die. I drew black lines around the edge of the hearts and then embossed them to match the hearts on the cello bags. When I started to layout the pieces for this tag at one point it looked like the hearts were balloons above they monkey's head, so I added some black button thread through a 1/16" hole in the bottom of the hearts and adhered the other ends behind the monkey.

Even the teacher's and administrator's were on our list!
