I picked up a book last week at Target about Valentine’s Day crafts. It had all kinds of cute crafts and I wanted to make them all. One of the crafts was these adorable Lollipops inserted into foam lips and mustaches. I like to call them Lollipop Kisses!! 🙂 Very simple…You’ll need: Red and Brown Craft foam, toothpick or wooden skewer, scissors/xacto knife, lollipops
draw out a mustache and some lips
cut them out with either scissors or xacto knife
poke a hole through the middle with a skewer or toothpick
insert your lollipop through it…DONE!
You could also add some printed flags to make it more pesonal..So cute and simple!!! This craft would make great for photoprops.. 🙂
On Friday I posted a picture of some supplies and asked who could guess what I was going to make? I didn’t receive any replies!!!!!!! I figured it was Friday, and everyone was ready for the weekend. I reposted the question over on our fanpage on Facebook and finally got some good guesses. Some people were very close and a couple were right on the mark! The supplies consisted of A pixy stix, 2 heart shaped chocolates, and a small craft foam heart…The result…. Cupid’s Arrow!!!
There are several ways you can use this arrow for Valentine’s Day. You can simply make the arrow and incorporate it into:
Attach to a Card
Attach personalized tag to the arrow
I decided to make a little Heart shaped card for my arrow…If you choose to do something like this, make sure you take a glimpse at the next few pictures because otherwise you will get stuck making your arrow all over again (Trust me, from personal experience!)
I first drew out a heart on pink cardstock paper about 4″x4″ and cut it out. Then I used an EXACTO Knife to cut two slits through the heart on opposite diagonal sides to fit my arrow through. With a Silver Sharpie marker, I wrote Happy Valentine’s Day. I took the pixy stix and slid it through the heart until it was postioned evenly. Using a Low Temp gluegun, I glued a tiny drop on the bottom of the piy stix and attached the foam heart. Then using 2 small glue dabs on the foil part on the back of the chocolate heart, I attached it to the pixy stix…And Voila! Isn’t it so cute!?
Sorry the Picture is bad!
You could always write on the back of the card or just make this as part of card or even write just the person’s name on the heart. If you want to use this craft at a party…It would be perfect as a placecard! 🙂
Target’s $1 Section HAS to be one of my favorite places to go! They always have the cutest seasonal items and containers! Last week, I found a few things that I will be using for my upcoming Mini Valentine’s Day Party.. 😉 One of the seasonal items I found that I just loved was this pack of hearts that you fold into envelopes. Not only can you use them for Valentine’s day, but you can buy different kinds of cardstock and make birthday envelopes custom to a theme, or for a wedding, etc.
The only thing lacking in this kit was a tip on how to make sure you folded the lines correctly and at the right length. I used a cardstock to line up the heart and make sure my folds and creases were nice and straight…Here’s a quick step by step guide I did to help out.. 🙂
So I promised I would have two posts yesterday with ideas for Valentine’s Day but I couldn’t get around to the Second Post! Sorry! It was for good reason I promise! I was out gathering more supplies and inspiratation for the next 2 weeks before Valentine’s Day. For now, here is a little question to see how good of a guesser you all are… 🙂
Can you guess what I’m going to make with these supplies??!!!! If you think you have the answer, comment below..
A few weeks back, my friend Andrea from Dolce Drive posted a GREAT idea for a valentine’s day treat! Check it out! Then my brain started running a million miles a minute about a whole bunch of ideas for Valentine’s Day!! I came up with a little twist on Andrea’s FAB idea and came up with a Donut Cookie in a box! A simple round sugar cookies with the center cut out and iced like a donut. Then I bought classic Sweetheart candies and lined the bottom of a clear box and tied it with a red satin ribbon. The final touch…the cute little tag Andrea designed! This would be a cute gift for a teacher, and if you don’t have time to make cookies shaped into donuts, buy an actual donut! Just as yummy!! Enjoy and stay tuned for more Valentine’s Day ideas these next two weeks!!
