Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday! I spent some time in my craft room yesterday– mostly tidying up and going through 4 boxes of stuff I hadn’t gone through yet! OOpS! I got most of it put away and I linked my Create a Critter 2 cartridge finally to Cricut Craft Room & my Gypsy.
You can link up a cartridge to both, as long as you link it to CCR first. Then when you sync your Gypsy with the Cricut Sync- it automatically goes onto your gypsy. Easy Peasy!
So…anyway, I needed to get some ideas of what to do for the kids for Valentines to hand out to their friends. I picked up these cute heart mazes from Oriental Trading (who happens to have free shipping right now) & although their shipping says 2 weeks- I got everything in just a few days!
And my little mister wanted to hand out Fun Dip– so I thought I’d work something out to make those a bit cuter. I think they may be TOO cute and not boyish enough, so I may try again today!
The stack I used for the projects is one of my favorite DCWV new releases, the Delightful Stack. You can find this stack along with a bunch of other beautiful ones at Joann’s. I am not usually a purple girl, but this stack is just so pretty!
To make this Valentine’s Card, I cut a 4.5 x 2 3/4 patterned paper, and corner rounded 2 of the corners. I made a smaller mat for stamping on the inside. Then stamped the sentiment using Vintage Holidays & Enjoy the Journey from Pink by Design.
Then I just used a removable glue dot to adhere the maze to the card- so the kids could easily pull them off and play with them.
Next up was the Fun Dip pouch… I used a 3.5 x 6 inch strip of patterned paper, and folded in half leaving .5 inch to spare so I could fold it over and adhere to the back. I adhered the bottom but you could also staple this if you wanted. I then punch 2 holes in the top front layer to lace ribbon through. I added a tag using Artisan Tags 2 and slipped in the Fun Dip.
They’re just a teensy bit on the girly side– so I think I might have to think of something else or at least change the colors if my son is going to be happy about passing them out
So, what do you think? Are you hand-making Valentines for your littlest Valentine to pass out this year?
