Being a “creative” mom, I feel like I can’t let my kids show up to school with the same character themed Valentine’s cards that the majority of their classmates will bring (not that there is anything wrong with those). I also feel the need to have my girls take part in making their cards for their friends and teachers so they understand what goes into as well as (hopefully) learn some creative moves of their own. This year we used the candy2share stamp set from The Stamps of Life (not sure how to do links yet) on tags. The original plan was the tie the tags onto goody bags with chocolate covered oreos inside. In my exhaustion, I made bag toppers (forgetting we were going to tie the tags on) and had to get creative. I stapled (love that tiny attacher from Tim Holtz) ribbon in the middle of the bag toppers and tied on the tags my girls stamped themselves. Hopefully there will be some very happy 5 and 8 years olds tomorrow (as well as some deserving teachers).
