Organic Kids Valentines :: Part II {plus a special gift for you}

This project was actually really fun to do, at least compared to the tedious building of the cereal bracelets. I felt like a kid again, getting really excited to sit down and be creative. 

what you'll need:

an array of embossing powders
embossing heat gun
stamp of choice {fairly small}
clear stamp ink
white piece of paper
organic yummy earth lollipops
brown paper bags {grocery or department store}, cut into 3 inch strips
scissors
tape glider
colored pen {I used white pen but you can used something else like gold or pink, etc.}

instructions:

After you cut the paper bags into long 3" strips {as shown below}, lay the strip down on white piece of paper. Using the same heart stamp as I used with the bracelets, I stamped into clear sticky ink, stamped the long paper strip powdered up the heart with lots of of the powder. Then pour the powder off onto the white paper. That way, when you're done, you can pour the glitter/powder back into it's container and reuse the excess.

When the strips are all finall embossed, you can write on them - whatever you want. I chose to write my sons names so kids knew who the lollipops were from. 

Of course, if you don't want to emboss, you can just use a pretty color ink for the stamp...like I did in my last valentine's day post. I thought the embossing added a really unique touch. OR if you don't have a stamp, you can just hand draw and write on each strip. 

Idea: maybe your child wants to hand write and draw a special something on each strip for each person in his/her class. My kids are too young for this, otherwise, I might have done so. 

That's it. Good LUCK & Happy Valentine's Day. 

OH...and if you're really lazy, want to spend NO money on this, or your just plain doing valentines last minute, DON'T STRESS, I made a unique printable card for you to print up at your house. Just cut each one out and write in your child's name. Couldn't be much easier than that: HERE it is in pdf version. {you're welcome}
